Recap of the 2014 Golden Globes with GIFs!

All right. Golden Globes. There were a lot of weird moments, like Jacqueline Bisset’s drunken speech, Sean “Diddy” Combs’ spotlight hogging, and Jonah Hill and Margot Robbie’s teleprompter fail. Buuuuut we had Amy Poehler and Tina Fey hosting, which meant the night was pretty fantastic.

Obviously, their jokes were consistently great throughout the night, but I did have my favorites:

  • Tina: “We are very happy to be back. We are hosting the Golden Globes for our second time. Because this is Hollywood, and if something kind of works, they’ll just keep doing it until everybody hates it!”
  • Amy: “Matt Damon is here for Behind the Candelabra. Matt, on any other night, in any other room, you would be a big deal. But tonight, and don’t take this the wrong way, you’re basically a garbage person.”
  • Tina: “Matthew McConaughey did amazing work this year. For his role in Dallas Buyers Club, he lost 45 pounds, or what actresses call being in a movie.”
  • Amy: “A lot of nominated shows this year are actually on Netflix. House of CardsOrange Is the New Black. Enjoy it while it lasts, Netflix. Because you’re not going to be feeling so smug in a couple of years when SnapChat is up here accepting Best Drama.”
  • Tina: “Gravity is nominated for Best Film. It’s the story of how George Clooney would rather float away into space and die then to spend one more minute with a woman his own age.”

And here are a few of the funny moments during the show (I didn’t include the Jennifer Lawrence creeping up on Taylor Swift GIF because everyone and their mother has shown it to you already). It only seems right to start with Tom Hanks’ hilarious “WTF?” face when Amy Poehler continually referred to him as “Tam Honks.”

Emma Thompson presented an award while holding her Louboutins and a drink. Because she’s the best.

Tina and Amy pointed out that Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who’s always been a TV nominee (and winner), was finally nominated for film, so JLD was sitting in the film section like a bad bitch (and ignoring Reese Witherspoon).

Then, when she didn’t win, she made her way back to the TV section, where she became a dork once again.

Amy Poehler got a massage from Bono during the Best TV Comedy Actress announcements. (Also, she won!)

And remember how I said Diddy was hogging the spotlight? Yeah, he made Kanye West look humble.
