The hosts kicked off the show with one hilarious monologue mocking Gaga, before stars like Idris Elba, Steve Carell and more found ways to stand out.
The biggest names in Hollywood picked up more than a few trophies on Sunday night at the Golden Globe Awards.
This year's event, which aired on NBC, was held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel and was hosted by Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh, who took home an award herself (more on that in a moment).
The evening celebrated both TV and film, with stars like Christian Bale, Regina King, Mahershala Ali, Darren Criss and Lady Gaga all grabbing some gold before calling it a night. There were also some big shockers, with "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "Green Book" both winning Best Picture, setting film Twitter into a tizzy.

The first moment of the night happened before the show even began, during an interview Chrissy Metz did with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's red carpet pre-show streaming on Facebook. "Do you know a girl named Alison Brie?" a co-host asked Metz to tee up the actress arriving. "Well I hear she's at the other end of the carpet."
The audio from Metz' feed faded as the production shifted gears to focus on Brie, but viewers still heard Metz talking to the presenters that were interviewing her. "I'm like, do I? She's such a...."
Well, some seemed to hear her say "bitch," though we don't. The story went viral, before Metz turned to Twitter to shut it down. "It's terribly unfortunate anyone would think much less run a story that was completely fabricated," she tweeted. "I adore Alison and would never say a bad word about her, or anyone! I sure hope she knows my heart."
The Hosts Take Aim at Lady Gaga ... and Emma Stone
Samberg and Oh kicked off the night proclaiming that they were hosting because they were "the only two people left in Hollywood who haven't gotten in trouble for saying something offensive."
The two then promised to forego their "nicest people in show business" images to "scorch some earth," jokingly taking aim at people like Bradley Cooper -- telling him he's "hot" -- and Spike Lee -- who they said "does the right thing, as a director."
The best bit came when they mocked Lady Gaga's infamous "100 people in a room" talking point from her "A Star Is Born" press tour, repeating the same story Gaga told during almost every interview she did, as she sat there squirming in the audience. "It's true!" she shouted at the hosts.
Oh also joked that "Crazy Rich Asians" was the first studio film with an Asian American lead since "Ghost in the Shell" and "Aloha" -- which starred Scarlett Johansson and Emma Stone. From the audience, Stone could be heard yelling, "I'm sorry!"
Sandra ended the monologue by recognizing the diversity in this year's nominees. "I said yes to the fear of being on this stage tonight because I wanted to be here to look out into this audience and witness this moment of change," she said. "I'm not fooling myself, next year could be different, it probably will be, but right now, this moment is real. Trust me, it is real. Because I see you. And I see you. All these faces of change. And now, so will everyone else."
Steve Carell came out to give an introduction to Carol Burnett, who was honored with the inaugural Carol Burnett Award, a new award honoring lifetime achievement in television. But it was a bleeped comment about Tom Hanks that really got people talking on Twitter.
"Carol Burnett lives up to every expectation of who you hope Carol Burnett would be," Carell said in his intro. "She is without a doubt one of the most revered, respected and well liked people in show business. It's been said that she makes Tom Hanks [censored]. I didn't say it, but it has been said."
So ... what did he say? "It's been said that she makes Tom Hanks look like an asshole." There you have it
Burnett's speech was also incredibly touching, as she reflected on her TV legacy. "[My] childhood dreams came true, sometimes on the big screen, but primarily on television on a comedy variety show that half a century later still connects with people in a way that makes me very proud," she said. "Sometimes I catch myself daydreaming about being young again and doing it all over and then I bring myself up short when I realize how incredibly fortunate I was to be there at the right time, because what we did then, it couldn't be done today."
She ended her speech with her signature sign off, "I am so glad we had this time together, thank you" and her ear tug.
Picking up her trophy for Supporting Actress - Motion Picture, Regina King threw down the gauntlet to everyone in the room.
After saying all her thank yous, King talked about supporting Times Up x2, a continuation of the movement. "The reason why we do this is because we understand that our microphones are big and we're speaking for everyone and I just want to say that I'm going to use my platform right now to say int he next two years, everything I produce, I am making a vow and it's going to be tough to make sure that everything I produce that is 50% women," she said, getting a standing O from Jessica Chastain.
"I just challenge anyone out there who is in a position of power, not just in an industry of power but in all industries," she continued. "I challenge you to challenge yourself and stand with us in solidarity and do the same."
Sandra Oh Wins Big
The host got to take home a trophy herself tonight, after she picked up the Actress - TV Series, Drama award for her work in "Killing Eve." It was just a joyous moment, made even better by a pair of audience members.
"There are two people here tonight that I am so grateful that they're here with me, I'd like to thank my mother and my father," she said, clearly getting emotional.
Even more adorable was her parents' reaction, as they looked on proudly from their seats.
Christian Bale picked up the award for Actor - Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy for his major transformation to play former VP Dick Cheney in "Vice."
During his speech -- which reminded everyone on Twitter that Bale is, in fact, British -- the actor told his competition that he'll be "cornering the market on charisma-free assholes." He then asked, "What do you think, Mitch McConnell next?"
He wasn't done yet though, as he then added, "Thank you to Satan, for giving me inspiration on how to play this role."
Jeff Bridges was honored with the 2019 Cecil B. deMille Award, following in the footsteps of Oprah Winfrey and Meryl Streep, who took it home the past two years.
The actor spent over six minutes thanking almost everyone he's worked with throughout his career, keeping his trademark enthusiasm up the entire time. It was a rambling speech, for sure, as he talked about being "tagged" and shouted, "We're all alive, right here, right now. This is happening, we're alive!" -- but it was also pure Jeff Bridges, and for that, we thank him.
Also great: Harrison Ford coming out to present the next category, deadpanning, "Nobody wants to follow Jeff Bridges, who wants to do that?"
Sandra Oh's NSFW Joke
In the internet's favorite joke of the night, Sandra Oh introduced Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley and Sterling K. Brown from "This Is Us" by saying this: "Break out the tissues, because you're going to want to masturbate to all of them"
Glenn Close Gets Everyone on Their Feet
Nobody looked more surprised to win an award tonight than Glenn Close, who picked up the third Golden Globe of her career on Sunday night for her work in "The Wife." Seriously, she looked shocked. After making her thanks, Close shared a story that got all the women in the audience out of their chairs to give her a standing ovation.
"I'm thinking of my mom who really sublimated herself to my father her whole life and in her 80s she said to me, I feel like I haven't accomplished anything and it was so not right," she explained. "I feel what I've learned through this whole experience, women, we're nurturers, that's what's expected of us. We have our children, we have our husbands if we're lucky enough, but we have to find personal fulfillment, we have to follow our dreams. We have to say I can do that and I should be allowed to do that."
