Candids from Inside the Golden Globe Awards

Seth Meyers' searing monologue kills, Sterling K. Brown makes history and Oprah brings down the house.

Hollywood came together to do more than hand out a few trophies on Sunday night at the Golden Globe Awards.

Celebrities in both television and film took a stand against sexual harassment in Hollywood all night long, whether it was with their red carpet attire, during acceptance speeches or host Seth Meyers' pointed opening remarks.

Of course, it wasn't all serious, as a few fun and viral moments shone through as well.

Here's everything you might have missed:

Stars Call Out E! ... on E!

[[__inactive:kaltura-video:0-jkk2b2r3__]]

With almost every single person who walked the red carpet wearing black -- except this one woman -- to support the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, it put E! in a very awkward position.

You see, Catt Sadler left the network in December after calling out the pay gap between her and one of her male co-host's, and it was a move stars speaking with E!'s correspondents didn't forget. Debra Messing, Sarah Jessica Parker, Eva Longoria and Laura Dern were among the actresses who called it out during interviews with Giuliana Rancic and Ryan Seacrest.

"I was so shocked that E! doesn't believe in paying their female cohosts the same as their male co-hosts. I miss Catt Sadler. We stand with her and that's something that could change tomorrow," said Messing to Rancic. "I know it's affected your network," SJP added while speaking with Seacrest about the #TimesUp movement.

"We support gender equity and equal pay. We hope that E! follows that lead with Catt as well. We stand with you, Catt," added Longoria.

Seth's Searing Opening Monologue

As host of the 2018 Golden Globes, Seth Meyers proved he knew how to lean into the difficult conversation with sensitivity, mixing the seriousness of the movement with genuine laugh-out-loud moments.

"Good evening ladies and remaining gentlemen," he said at the top, setting the tone for the evening. "For the male nominees in the room tonight, this is the first time in three months it won’t be terrifying to hear your name read out loud. 'Did you hear about Willem DeFoe?' 'Oh no.' 'He was nominated.' 'Don't do that! Don't do that.'"

"I think it’s time to address the elephant not in the room," he said. "Harvey Weinstein isn’t here tonight because, well, I’ve heard rumors that he's crazy and difficult to work with. But don’t worry, he’ll be back in 20 years when he becomes the first person ever booed during the In Memoriam."

See a full breakdown of the monologue here:

Nicole Kidman's Sweet Keith Urban Moment

Nicole Kidman gave everyone watching at home all the feels when she picked up the trophy for Best Actress in a Limited Series for her work in "Big Little Lies."

First, she thanked her mother, who she called "an early advocate of the women's movement." "Thank you, Janelle Kidman, for what you fought for so hard," she added.

She then thanked her co-stars, before turning her attention towards her husband, Keith Urban. "And Keith Urban, when my cheek is against yours, everything melts away," she said, "I love you."

Sterling K. Brown's Powerful Speech

Sterling K. Brown knows how to deliver a great acceptance speech, which he once again proved when he hit the podium after winning Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series for "This Is Us." He made history as the first African-American man to win this category.

He thanked his wife and kids first, before giving accolades to his co-stars and network. But it was creator Dan Fogelman who got a special (and powerful) shoutout.

"Throughout the majority of my career, I have benefitted from colorblind casting, which means, let's throw a brother into the role," he explained. "But Dan Fogelman, you wrote a role for a black man, that can only be played by a black man. What I appreciate so much about this is I'm being seen for who I am and being appreciated for who I am and it makes it that much harder to dismiss me or dismiss anybody who looks like me."

Tommy Wiseau Gets His Moment In the Spotlight

The inspiration for "The Disaster Artist," creator of "The Room" Tommy Wiseau, finally got some award show love after making one of the worst movies ever made.

James Franco won Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy for playing the kooky director and invited the man himself to the stage for his speech. James didn't, however, let the guy speak.

Instead, the actor did a Wiseau impression, repeating a conversations the director had with one of his friends 19 years ago. "Golden Globes, so what, I'm not invited, I know they don't want me, guy with accent long hair, so I show them. I don't wait for Hollywood, I make my own movie" -- well, look at him now!

Tom Hanks, Waiter

Not much to say here, except Tom Hanks knows how to have a good time.

The Golden Globes are known for bringing on the booze and "The Post" star knew just where the find it.

Thanks to "This Is Us" creator Dan Fogelman for sharing this photo of the man in action!

Allison Janney Honors Tonya Harding

Disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding was the guest of honor at the "I, Tonya" table.

Not only did she get to mingle with celebrities all night long, but she even got a special shoutout during Allison Janney's acceptance speech.

"I would just like to thank Tonya for sharing her story," she said. "What I love about this movie, what this movie did is tell a story about class in America, tell a story about the disenfranchised, tell the story about a woman who was not embraced for her individuality, tell a story about truth and the perception of truth in the media and truths we all tell ourselves. It's an extraordinary movie and I'm so proud of it."

Billy Eichner had his own reaction:

Bow Down for Oprah

Oprah Winfrey was the first African-American woman to be honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award and she brought everyone chills with her remarkable acceptance speech. Seriously, this speech was downright presidential -- and had all of Twitter wishing for her to run in 2020.

During the lengthy speech, she reflected on the importance of seeing Sidney Poitier become the first black man to win Best Actor at the Academy Awards in 1964 and what her honor could mean for young girls growing up now.

She spoke passionately about the #MeToo movement and the power of journalism in a time where it's "under seige," referencing men like Donald Trump and Harvey Weinstein without ever saying their names. "For too long, women have not been heard or believed," she explained, "but their time is up." She repeated that last part as the audience got on their feet.

"I want all the girls watching here now to know that a new day is on the horizon," she continued. "And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom who are in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say #MeToo again."

Natalie Portman Did That

Natalie Portman and Ron Howard had to follow up Winfrey's powerful speech by presenting the award for Director, with Portman delivering a jab at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association with her introduction.

With Guillermo Del Toro, Martin McDonagh, Christopher Nolan, Ridley Scott, Steven Spielberg all nominated -- and not Greta Gerwig, despite the award season love for "Lady Bird" -- the actress pointed out, "and here are the all-male nominees."

Del Toro won and delivered a passionate speech of his own.
