Last night, “Saturday Night Live” veterans Tina Fey & Amy Poehler took the stage for their last time as hosts of the 72nd Golden Globes, honoring both film and television during one of the biggest, booziest parties in Hollywood. It was about as good as one of these awards shows can be, and in a rare occurrence, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association actually seemed to be right on the money with most of their winners (though there are a few that might raise some eyebrows).  So without further adieu, let’s get down to the highlights, winners and snubs.

First of all, before anything, you simply must check out this 10-minute opening monologue from Tina Fey & Amy Poehler, complete with the perfect skewering of the controversy surrounding Bill Cosby that’s been unfolding for weeks now:

Cecile B. DeMille Award
George Clooney

Honestly, when it comes to the film awards, they pretty much went to all the right people. Boyhood is certainly an Oscar frontrunner now with the film winning the Best Drama category and Richard Linklater taking home Best Director. Personally though, I found the Golden Globe for Best Animated Film to be disappointing. Don’t get me wrong, because I really liked How to Train Your Dragon 2, but The LEGO Movie is the most original, creative and fantastic animated movie of the year. That’s just my opinion, but there seemed to be a lot of dissension online last night.

Transparent

Meanwhile, on the TV side of things, there were a lot of surprises and shake-ups. First of all, it’s important to note that the big networks like ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox didn’t take home a single award last night. Instead Amazon’s breakout series “Transparent” and its lead actor Jeffrey Tambor won big alongside other non-traditional programming outlets like Netflix’s “House of Cards” landing the Best Actor award for Kevin Spacey.

But it wasn’t all online outlets taking the glory. The CW was already a surprising presence at the Golden Globes with nominations for freshman series “Jane the Virgin,” and while the show didn’t win the Musical or Comedy, lead actress Gina Rodriguez taking home Best Actress in a TV Series, Comedy or Musical was quite a big deal. Meanwhile, Showtime’s “The Affair” shook things up by taking home Best TV Series, Drama, and also Best Actress in a TV Series, Drama for Ruth Wilson. There were tons of viewers who didn’t even know the show existed, but it sounds like it’s a must-see.

Frances McDormand - Golden Globes

Meanwhile, there might have been some sour grapes during the show last night when “Fargo” won Best Miniseries or TV Movie. The above image shows Frances McDormand during the show, who has become a bit of a meme online for looking pretty grumpy throughout the entire event. McDormand was the lead star of the motion picture Fargo on which the miniseries is based, so shouldn’t she be happy? Instead during the show’s win, she didn’t look too thrilled.

And in fact, the cameras seemed to catch Joel & Ethan Coen (one of them is married to McDormand too) seemingly choosing not to pay attention to the stage during their win until they were shown live during the broadcast. It just might have been a coincidence, but could there maybe be some bad blood between the Coens and the creators of the television adaptation? McDormand has previously said she felt a little slighted about not being asked to be part of the show before, but Joel & Ethan Coen were asked about it before the show was made. They don’t own the rights to the movie, so the studio wasn’t obligated to speak with them, but maybe they weren’t fans of the idea, even though they didn’t raise a fuss about it? We’re not sure, but that certainly made us wonder.

Anyway, all in all it was a pretty fun night, though we could have used a little more Tina Fey & Amy Poehler since this was their last time hosting the show. And just for giggles, we’ll leave you with Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig having some fun before introducing one of the awards last night:
