From Common's moving speech that referenced Ferguson and the NYPD officers to Michael Keaton's tearful award acceptance, the 72nd Golden Globes will forever be truly memorable.  


Check out my favorite moments and highlights from the awards show last night!

Awkward. Bill Cosby Jokes



Hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were hilarious from the very start when they called the audience minimally talented and spoiled brats, ha. The jokes kept coming and they even took a dig at Bill Cosby and the controversy surrounding him. Watch as the crowd gasps:



Kevin Spacey is a BOSS!

Kevin Spacey is off the hook! He won 'Best Actor' in a TV series for his show House of Cards.

First off, he brought his drink onstage during his acceptance speech... awesome! During his speech, he mentioned that he wants to get better. He also said, "This is the eighth time I've been nominated and I can't believe [insert some curse word here] won."

Even Orange is the New Black star Uzo Aduba a.k.a Crazy Eyes was shocked at whatever curse word he said, but it was bleeped out.





Prince Was in the Building! Yes, Prince!

Prince got people excited as hell when he stepped on that stage to present! Even Lorde was crying a little. He still got it... Go 'head Prince!


Prince is a G!
This brings us to the next highlight...

The Best Acceptance Speech of the Night!

Prince presented the award for 'Best Original Song' in which Common and John Legend won for their song "Glory." The song is featured in the new movie Selma. This was both Common and John's first Golden Globes award win.

Common's acceptance speech was touching and very well said. Common said while stepping on the set of Selma, he realized this was bigger than a movie:

“As I got to know the people of the Civil Rights movement, I realize I am the hopeful black woman who was denied her right to vote. I am the caring white supporter killed on the front lines of freedom. I am the unarmed black kid who maybe needed a hand but instead was given a bullet. I am the two fallen police officers murdered in the line of duty. Selma has awakened my humanity..."

Even Chrissy Teigen, John Legend's wife, was emotional. Her 'cry face' went viral! Hahaa.

Michael Keaton's Tearful Acceptance Speech


Michael Keaton won 'Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy' for his movie Birdman ... this was very well deserved! Keaton teared up a bit when discussing his best friend - his son. And, he also said the following encouraging words:

"Work hard, don't quit. Be appreciative, be thankful, be grateful, be respectful, never whine, ever... Never complain and always, for crying out loud, keep a sense of humor."



JLo Got the Globes Too!

While Jennifer Lopez and Jeremy Renner were presenting, Jeremy pointed out that JLo "got the Globes too!" Watch the hilarious clip below:

Gina Rodriguez's First Win and Emotional Speech

This was Gina Rodriguez's first Golden Globes win! The Jane the Virgin actress won 'Best Actress in a TV Series, Comedy or Musical.' 

During Gina's moving acceptance speech, she thanked her parents who always told her, "dream big and never stop dreaming."

The actress ended her speech saying, "My father used to tell me to say every morning, ‘Today is going to be a great day. I can and I will.’ Well, Dad, today is a great day. I can and I did.”

Gina starts talking around the 2:57 mark, take a look:
