Awards season kicked off with a bang as comedy queens Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted the 2014
Award hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler set the tone for an evening of jokes and laughs, starting with Tina's entertaining line of, "We are hosting the Golden Globes for our second time, because this is Hollywood and if something works they'll keep doing it until everyone hates it."
The comedy duo poked fun at the famous faces in the room, with the best joke coming at the expense of Gravity star George Clooney. "It's the story of how George Clooney would rather float away into space and die than spend one more minute with a woman his own age," quipped Tina about the film.
She then called Matt Damon "basically a garbage person", which the 43-year-old actor took on the chin, saying, "It's me, the garbage man," as he walked on stage. Photo: © Getty Images

Remarking to the press that she had "no idea" what she was doing there, Jennifer Lawrence couldn't have been more wrong. The 23-year-old Oscar winner was genuinely shocked as she accepted the award for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture for her role in American Hustle.

Despite losing out to Cate Blanchett for the Best Actress in Motion Picture award, Emma Thompson still gave the best on-stage performance. Wearing Vintage Lanvin from WilliamVintage, the British beauty strolled on stage barefoot, designer Christian Louboutin heels in one hand and a martini in the other.
The 54-year-old star joked that the trademark Louboutin red soles were actually her blood, because her feet were aching so much. "I just want you to know, this red? It's my blood," said Emma.
The cherry on the top was when Emma realised she didn't have the envelope with the list of nominations and it had to be brought over to her. Photo: © Getty Images
The Wolf on Wall Street co-stars Jonah Hill and Margot Robbie suffered a technical malfunction on stage when they were given the wrong introduction for their presenting speech.
"I'm not going to lie to you right now, they put up the wrong stuff on the teleprompter," said Jonah to fits of laughter.
Jonah and Margot quickly improvised, reading out from a piece of yellow legal paper in true Wolf on Wall Street style. Photo: © Getty Images

As the notoriously fame-shy Woody Allen won the outstanding Lifetime Achievement Award, his close friend Diane Keaton, who starred in Woody's film Annie Hall, accepted the trophy on his behalf with a speech and musical rendition.
"It's kind of hard for me to wrap my mind around the fact that 179 of the world's most captivating actresses have appeared in Woody Allen's films," said Diane. "And there's a reason for this. And the reason is, they wanted to.
"Woody's films have been changing the way we think about life, love and the pursuit of neuroses forever."
