Golden Globes 2015: All the winners and memorable moments

Comedy duo Tina Fey and Amy Poehler brought their comedic A-game to the 2015 Golden Globes, which saw numerous newcomers and first-time nominees make their mark at the annual event honouring the best of film and television. The SNL alums kicked off the show by poking fun at its celebrity attendees (“Wes [Anderson] arrived on a bicycle made of antique tuba parts,” they joked) while engaging in a hilarious game of “who would you rather" with some of the prominent male actors in the audience.

Dressed up as a North Korean reporter, Margaret Cho posed for a photo with Meryl Streep as Benedict Cumberbatch jumped up to photobomb the moment. She later joined the hosts onstage to disparage the awards show for its lack of dazzling entertainment.

Despite the party-like atmosphere of the event, many stars took the opportunity to speak up in freedom of expression in light of the attack in Paris last week , with several stars – like Helen Mirren and Amal Clooney – walking the red carpet sporting “Je suis Charlie” accessories and badges, while others acknowledged the tragedy in their acceptance speeches, including George Clooney.

Up against Hollywood heavyweights Edie Falco and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jane the Virgin star Gina Rodriguez gave a tearful speech as she received her award for Best Television Actress, Musical or Comedy for her breakout role, while Downton Abbey's Joanne Froggatt won her first-ever Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress.


Eight-time nominee Kevin Spacey, who finally snagged a win for House of Cards, joked, "This is just the beginning of my revenge," in his acceptance speech. Another first-time winner was Maggie Gyllenhaal who, after two previous nominations, took home the award for Best Actress for her role in the television mini-series The Honourable Woman.

George Clooney was honoured with the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award for his work as an actor, director and humanitarian. He thanked his beautiful wife, who beamed at him from the audience. "It's a humbling thing when you find someone to love," he said. "Amal, whatever alchemy has brought us together, I couldn't be prouder to be your husband."

Finally, it came time for the biggest awards of the night: Michael Keaton won Best Actor in a Comedy for Birdman, while newlywed Eddie Redmayne won Best Actor for his role as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything. Amy Adams won Best Actress in a Comedy for Big Eyes and Julianne Moore took home Best Actress in a Drama for Still Alice.
