The 71st annual Golden Globes are underway. The stars have packed the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California and the night is off to a fabulous and funny start.
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are hosting the Globes and started off the evening on the best note possible. The duo looked stunning in long ball gowns and proved that they are the best hosts for the evening. The jokes that Fey and Poehler made were modern, funny and made the entire audience laugh along with them. Fey and Poehler even joked that Gravity was the film that proved that George Clooney would rather drift into space and die instead of being in a film with a woman his own age.
The first award of the night was for best supporting actress in a motion picture. The category was stacked with talent but in the end Jennifer Lawrence took home the honor for her work in American Hustle.
The next award was best supporting actress in a TV movie, series, or miniseries. Jacqueline Bisset took home the award for her work in Dancing on the Edge. Bisset was also the first person to be played off the stage during the awards show.
Following Bisset’s awkward yet heartfelt speech, presenters Mark Ruffalo and Naomi Watts presented the award for best mini-series or TV movie. Taking home the award was HBO's Behind The Candelabra. The award for best actress in a TV movie or mini-series went to Elisabeth Moss for her work in Top of the Lake.
The President of the Hollywood Foreign Press welcomed the stars and asked them to enjoy their evening. He even made a few jokes himself.
Next up to present was Jonah Hill and Margot Robbie from Wolf of Wall Street to introduce their film. The teleprompter failed and the duo recovered beautifully and made it a great joke.
The next award was best actor in a TV series drama. The category was packed with talent from Bryan Cranston to Kevin Spacey. Bryan Cranston took home the award for his work on the AMC drama, Breaking Bad.
Breaking Bad also took home the award for best TV drama. The entire cast accepted the award and Aaron Paul stole the moment by saying his famous catch phrase, “Yeah, Bitch” upon winning the award.
The next award of the night went to All is Lost for best original score in an original motion picture. Original song went to U2 for their work on “Ordinary Love,” which was featured in the film Mandela: A Long Walk to Freedom.
The odd moments of the first hour of the show included Bisset’s speech and the fact that it took award winners a long time to walk from their seats to the stage.
