Golden Globe Winners

The 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards took place last night and it was definitely a memorable evening. The event was hosted by funny ladies Tina Fey and Amy Poehler who took the reins from Ricky Gervais who hosted the show for the last 3 years. There were so many great moments from the opening with Fey and Poehler where they made fun of Kathryn Bigalow, Anne Hathaway and various others, to Jodie Foster’s speech as she accepted the Cecil B. Demille Award. There were also some awards given. Most were pretty predictable but others (Girls winning for Best Comedy) were completely surprising. Here are the list winners.
