There were technical difficulties, awkward Zooms and many a joke at the expense of the Hollywood Foreign Press itself.
The Golden Globes may have looked a little different this year, but they still got people talking on social media.
For the fourth time, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted - but they didn't grace the stage together, as Tina filmed remotely from a venue in New York and Amy from Los Angeles. As for the audience, it was made up of "smoking hot first responders and essential workers."
Keep reading for all the moments that had people talking throughout the show.
The show kicked off with Fey and Poehler appearing "on stage" next to each other, from across the country. Fey was at the Rainbow Room in NYC, "where indoor dining and outdoor mugging are back," while Poehler joked she was "here at the District 7 New Angeles and this is the 78th Annual Hunger Games."
After joking about technical glitches sure to come, they made a crack about this year's nominees, calling them, "Parts of a Lady," "Irish Goodnight," "Ali G Goes to Chicago" and "all the fantastic TV shows you binge-watched this year: The American 'Office,' old Columbos,' very one-sided news programs" and more. They also took aim at some of the usual attendees, including Quentin Tarantino -- who's usually "crawling under the tables, touching people's feet."
They also addressed the controversy surrounding the HFPA, saying they're "around 90, international, no-Black journalists who attend movie junkets each year in search of a better life. We say around 90 because a couple of them might be ghosts and the German member is a sausage that somebody drew a little face on."
Talking more about the HFPA's odd choices, they added, "a lot of flashy garbage got nominated but that's like their thing and a number of Black actors and Black-led projects were overlooked." They continued, "Inclusivity is important and there are no Black members of the foreign press. Maybe you didn't get the memo because your workplace is the back booth of a French McDonald's, but you gotta change that."
Thank you Amy Poehler and Tina Fey for bringing the lack of representation in the HFPA to light. Real change must come #GoldenGlobes
Of the most savage burns about the nominees, Fey joked, "French Exit is what I did after watching the first episode of Emily in Paris," before the camera cut to star Lily Collins, who laughed -- and Fey calling Sia's "Music" a "flop-a-rooney," "real problematic" and "the most offensive casting since Kate Hudson was the Weight Watchers spokesperson."
Right off the bat, there were some technical glitches as winners accepted their awards from home.
Accepting his award for Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture for his work in "Judas and the Black Messiah," star Daniel Kaluuya's mic wasn't working. Instead, we heard someone, possibly in the control booth, say "I wish I could hear."
While presenter Laura Dern was ready to accept it on his behalf, he finally got up and running and started shouting, "You did me dirty, am I on, am I on, is this on? Can you hear me now?"
He then thanked the HFPA, friends, family and supporters. He and John Boyega were the first two to win -- something which wasn't lost on viewers watching at home, as many noted that there were more winners in one night than Black members of the HFPA.

By having the nominees attend from home, there was a lot of unorthodox fashion for this year's event -- but none moreso than Bill Murray's.
He popped up as Dern read the Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture nominees and gave Kaluuya a cheers of his martini when he won. His Hawaiian shirt, however, really stole the show as he participated in the event from his Los Angeles home.
After the first few awards, a few members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association came out and promised to do better going forward.
"We recognize we have our own work to do … Black representation is vital. We must have Black representation in our organization," they said. "We must also ensure everyone from all under-represented communities gets a seat at our table and we are going to make it happen."
"We look forward to a more inclusive future," they added.
We'll see next year if they followed through on this promise.
Colin Farrell and His Eyebrows
There was a lot of talk about Colin Farrell on social media, thanks to -- but not limited to -- his Zoom setup, intensity, overall hotness and, yes, his eyebrows.
I know they say eyebrows should be sisters not twins, but Colin Farrell's eyebrows are like the well-adjusted professional sister and the methy sister named Tango who lives in a yurt and only eats foods that start with "W" #GoldenGlobespic.twitter.com/kz66B17AB4
Kenan Thompson gave a certain subset of viewers some major "All That" flashbacks when he appeared on stage for a bit with Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph.
While they introduced him as a creator named Francois, his French persona immediately got Twitter talking about Pierre Escargot, the Frenchman who always appeared in a bath tub on the Nickelodeon series back in the day.
The "Ted Lasso" star won Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series, Musical or Comedy for his work on the show and accepted wearing a simple, tie-dye hoodie and rocking his character's signature mustache.
After wondering whether it was his time to speak and a good 10-15 seconds of shock before launching into his speech, in which he said he reads Tolstoy to his 6-year old son. He went on to reject the idea of Best Actor and gave a shoutout to everyone he acts with on the show -- saying they make him "better."
when i tell you, jason sudeikis has the ability to make anyone feel represented. from ted lasso to being high and stoned in a hoodie, he makes me feel seen, understood, heard https://t.co/z3ffFR9ihr
Jane Fonda picked up this year's Cecil B. DeMille Award, which is the ceremony's equivalent of the lifetime achievement award. Following a clip package of both her career and activist highlights, Fonda gave a speech about how entertainment -- and more than a few nominees -- has the power to make you "seen and hear what you may have been afraid of seeing and hearing" in the past.
Talking about the importance of inclusivity and diversity in the industry, she said there's been gatekeeping for too long when it comes to who's offered a seat at the table and "who is kept out of the rooms where decisions are made."
"Stories can change people, but there's a story we have been afraid to see and hear about ourselves and this industry," she added. "The story about which voices we respect and elevate, and which we tune out."
"Let's all of us make an effort to expand that tent, so everyone's story has a chance to be seen or heard," she continued. "Let's be leaders."
Jane Fonda needs to come back on stage next year so we can give her a proper and LONG in person standing ovation. #GoldenGlobes
The late Chadwick Boseman's wife, Taylor Simone Ledward, accepted the Best Actor in a Motion Picture trophy on his behalf for his work in "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom." It was an emotional moment for everyone involved, as presenter Renee Zellweger and Boseman's fellow nominees all teared up as she spoke.
"He would thank God, he would thank his parents, he would thank his ancestors for their guidance and their sacrifices," she said, before pointing out Boseman's "incredble team" and costars in the film.
"He would say something beautiful, something inspiring, something that would amplify that little voice inside all of us that tells you you can, that tells you to keep going, that calls you back to what you are meant to be doing at this moment in history," she continued. "I don't have his words, but we have to take all the moments to celebrate those we love so thank you HFPA for this opportunity to do exactly that. And hon, you keep 'em coming. Thank you."
Ben Stiller, Silver Fox
One person who wound up being the focus of a lot of Twitter talk and headlines was Ben Stiller, simply for not dyeing his hair.
The actor joked about his grey hair while hitting the stage as a presenter during the show.
"It's hard to believe that it’s been a full year since the last Golden Globes but like many of us, I've used that time to really look inward and grow," he began. "I've come to fully understand the nature of cryptocurrency. I read a book. I finally got around to dyeing my hair gray."
He also showed off his bread making skills, but it was his silver fox status that had everyone talking.
