1. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Slay Their Opening Monologue
Award show opening monologues can sometimes be an awkward drag, but comedy veterans Tina Fey and Amy Poehler knew just how to handle their Globes co-hosting gig. The ladies delivered hilarious joke after hilarious joke aimed at everyone from Zero Dark Thirty director Kathryn Bigelow ("When it comes to torture, I trust the lady who spent three years married to James Cameron.") to Meryl Streep ("Meryl Streep has the flu, and I hear she's amazing in it."). They even poked fun at their TV star status, joking, "Only at the Golden Globes do the beautiful people of film rub shoulders with the rat-faced people of television."
2. Jennifer Lawrence Wins for Silver Linings Playbook
Jennifer Lawrence took home yet another award for her role in Silver Linings Playbook, and the 22-year-old star could barely contain her excitement. "What does it say? I beat Meryl [Streep]!" she joked when she first took the stage to accept her Globe. From there, Lawrence got more sentimental, thanking her parents for all their support over the years. She also teared up as she thanked her two brothers, saying, "I wouldn't be who I am today without you being mean to me."
3. A Homeland Sweep
Much like the Emmys, Homeland swept the 2013 Golden Globes. Damian Lewis took home the award for Best Actor in a Drama, thanking his deceased mother with a heartfelt tribute, "I want to dedicate this to my mom...who I know is up there bursting with pride and telling everyone up there how well her son is doing in acting." When Homeland won for Best Television Drama, executive producer Alex Gansa paid tribute to the show's leading lady, telling the crowd, "I wish you all could have seen Claire Danes, eight months pregnant, holding a steel pipe being chased by Abu Nazir." Just a few minutes later, the new mom took home her own Golden Globe and thanked her one-month-old baby Cyrus. "I have to thank my son... for joining me in this process and for being so game in fighting this war against terrorism," Danes joked.
4. Lincoln Gets a Big Name Introduction
Who else could introduce a film about an ex-President other than...an ex-President? Former POTUS Bill Clinton surprised almost everyone in attendance when he took the stage to introduce the movie Lincoln. Girls star Lena Dunham was beside herself with excitement, while Amy Poehler had a different take. The Parks and Recreation star channeled her inner Leslie Knope, marveling, "That was Hillary Clinton's husband!"
5. Adele Makes Her First Post-Pregnancy Appearance
Adele has won pretty much every award she's ever been nominated for, but the singer still seemed surprised and incredibly grateful when she took home the Golden Globe for Best Original Song for "Skyfall.""Oh my God! Oh my God! Oh my God!" she exclaimed. "I was not expecting this, thank you so much!" According to Adele, she was just there to have a good time with a fellow new mom. "Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your world for one night," she gushed. "We've been pissing ourselves laughing over here."Taylor Swift's reaction to Adele's win was also priceless in a whole different way.
