Tina Fey & Amy Poehler - Golden Globes 2015

Last night was the 72nd Golden Globe Awards, and as always, it was a crazy night.

No-one was safe in the opening speech, there were plenty of well-deserved awards, some robberies, and Amal Clooney's husband got a Lifetime Achievement Award. 

All of this and more are some of our favourite moments from last night's event, but what else was going on? Here's our highlights:

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were basically flawless.

Returning for their third year of hosting the Golden Globes, the Queens of Comedy were almost on point almost the entire night, and didn't hold back on any subject. George Clooney, the Sony leaks and especially Bill Cosby were just a few of the targets that were roasted as early as their opening speech.

"Human rights lawyer Amal Clooney and her husband" was the best joke of the night.

The internet has done an incredible job of giving mainstream media one big FTFY, after the epic achievements of Amal Clooney (nee Alamuddin) have been frequently overlooked, in favour of just referring to her as "George Clooney's wife". 

So while her husband was taking home the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award last night, hosts Amy and Tina and the entire internet were quick to spin that old trope on its head with hilarious results.

Amal's dazzling appearance at the event showed hopefully millions of viewers that you don't have to be a celebrity to shine.

Not everyone was in on the joke, though; particularly TV dweeb Ryan Seacrest and the E! crew, who presented the power couple with this tacky t-shirt instead.

Womp-womp.

Serial photobomber Benedict Cumberbatch struck again.

BOOM. Meryl Streep and Margaret Cho just got Cumberbombed.

John Legend and Common won Best Original Song for Selma's "Glory".

The Martin Luther King Jr. biopic sadly missed out in every other category it was nominated in, but the movie's powerful signature track that references the Civil Rights Movement and recent protests in Ferguson and New York took home the gold. Listen to it here:

 The Transparent team dedicated their win for Best TV Series to Leelah Alcorn.

Dedicating their award to the memory of transgender teen Leelah Alcorn, who committed suicide in late December, series writer Jill Holloway concluded her heartfelt speech with "Maybe we're gonna teach the world something about authenticity, and truth, and love," as she and the rest of the Transparent crew picked up the gong onstage. 

Jeremy Renner made the same stupid boob joke we can't escape from every year.

Nice shooting there, Hawkeye.
