Hosting the 2014 Golden Globes for the second time, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler returned to the stage at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles. This year the comic duo’s intro monologue seemed a litte more scripted than their first time around. With less memorable jokes, the opening felt more like a long introduction of ‘one-liners’ for every major nominee. Best hit of the night was to George Clooney when they said “Gravity” was a movie about how “George Clooney would rather float away and die than spend another minute with a woman his own age.”

Towards the end, Tina Fey gladly invited the Somalian pirates back to her room after the show… with a wink. Overall, the theme of the night seemed to be: “nerves.” Acceptance speeches were shaky and a tad flat. During Jonah Hill and Margot Robbie’s presentation for Best Motion Picture Comedy, supposedly the teleprompter was on the fritz. But, as Hill does best, he pulled it off with some humor. A crowd pleasing standing ovation win went to Bryan Cranston for his award for Best Actor in “Breaking Bad.” Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs tried to take the limelight from composer, Alex Ebert. Not sure why Combs and Usher were presenting at the Golden Globes in the first place. The most touching speech of the night goes to Amy Adams who is celebrating her 15 years since her first audition in Hollywood. Emma Thompson truly let loose on stage with a martini and carrying her pair of Louboutin shoes while presenting Best Screenplay. As always, the show ran for what felt like an eternity. Luckily, there were some laughs along the way and well-deserved wins. And the winners are…
