The champagne has been swigged, the hors d'oeuvre consumed and the statuettes collected—another Golden Globe Awards is in the history books. And when future generations look upon the proceedings, it will be a night remembered for big wins by "Argo" and "Les Misérables" on the film side and "Homeland" and "Girls" on the TV side.
But the tally marks only tell half of the story. From Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's excellent turn as hosts, to another snub for "Django Unchained" star Leonardo DiCaprio, MTV News recounts the real winners and losers from last night's awards show.
Winners: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler
After three years of acid-tongued quips courtesy of Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's witty, playful banter was a welcomed breath of fresh air. From a winning monologue that lovingly poked fun at the Hollywood machine, to their appearances as faux "Dog President" nominees Damian Francisco and Darcy St. Fudge, the funny ladies were everything we could ask for from Golden Globe hosts. Our only complaint? Not enough Tina and Amy.
Way to make Paul Rudd and Salma Hayek look foolish, teleprompters! The presenting pair seemed at a loss following the Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series - Drama category as they waited to read the Best Television Series - Drama nominees. "How's everybody doing?" Rudd joked to fill the awkward silence. Better question is, "How are you doing, Paul?"
Sure, the Steven Spielberg-directed drama only took home one statuette (here's looking at you, Daniel Day-Lewis!), but it was also the only Best Picture nominee to be introduced by an actual former president, Bill Clinton.
Loser: Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift's signature surprise face was nowhere to be found as Adele edged out the country star for the Best Song win. In fact, it appears Swift has added a new expression to her oeuvre: less-than-enthused face.
Winners: Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell
The former "Saturday Night Live" players presented the nominees for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy, helpfully summarizing each role, including "Muriel" Streep's turn as a sassy sheriff and Jennifer Lawrence's part as a protector of cookbooks. The only one not amused: Tommy Lee Jones. All together now: "You get out of heeeeeeeeere."
Loser: Sarah Palin
The hockey mom and former Alaska governor not only got a good-natured ribbing from host Fey, but the film she panned as a "false narrative" garnered a win for star Julianne Moore. Wonder how she'll "refudiate" that.
Winner: Ben Affleck
"Argo" f--- yourself, Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences! Just days after his Best Director Oscar snub, Ben Affleck nabbed the same honor from the Hollywood Foreign Press for helming the Iranian Hostage Crisis thriller. The standing ovation he received from the packed auditorium tells you everything you need to know about the industry's opinion on that snub.
Loser: George Clooney
"Argo" producer George Clooney received his own snub at the hands of Affleck, who forgot to mention him in his acceptance speech. At least Affleck's wife Jennifer Garner was on hand to remedy the situation.
Apparently the Hollywood Foreign Press Association didn't get the memo that the second season of the Showtime series was kinda sorta bonkers, considering it swept the TV drama category. Mandy Patinkin, holla!?
Loser: Leonardo DiCaprio
Much like Affleck, Leonardo DiCaprio was snubbed during by the AMPAS for his work on "Django Unchained." But unlike Affleck, he didn't win a Golden Globe to soothe the pain. Should we start our "Great Gatsby" for 2014 campaign now?
