The Golden Globes: The Good, the Bad & the Gaga

Well, you can't say the Golden Globes are boring. I was as surprised as many of the winners were when their names were read (and I only correctly predicted 5 out of 25). As for Ricky Gervais - the host of last night's 73rd Annual telecast - his amusingly cruel sense of humor was good for a few laughs, but I still much prefer Tina and Amy. Now here are the winners (my correct predictions are in pink) as well as some of my own personal awards:

Worst Comedy Bit: Presenter Jonah Hill's "Bear" performance from The Revenant wasn't funny at all - maybe he had a few too many cocktails.

Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture: Kate Winslet for Steve Jobs

Most Nervous Winner: Maura Tierney, who won Best Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Miniseries or Television Film for The Affair

Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical Series: I was happy for Rachel Bloom, who won her first Golden Globe for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (one of my favorite new shows of the season).

Best Cameo Appearance by a Tony Award Winner: It was nice to see Bernadette Peters on stage when her Amazon series, Mozart in the Jungle, unexpectedly won Best Comedy or Musical Series.

Cruelest Joke: When Gervais introduced presenter Matt Damon by saying that Matt was the only person Ben Affleck hasn't been unfaithful to.

Best Miniseries Or Television Film: Wolf Hall

Hottest Hunks of the Night: A tie between Michael Fassbender and Oscar Isaac, who won Best Actor in a Miniseries or Television Film for HBO's Show Me a Hero.

Best Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Miniseries or Television Film: Christian Slater for Mr. Robot

Best Steve Harvey Impression: Presenter Jamie Foxx, who jokingly announced that Straight Outta Compton won Best Original Score.

Best Original Score: Ennio Morricone for The Hateful Eight

Most Amusing Line of the Night: "Thank you, Charo" - Eva Longoria to America Ferrera before they presented Best Actor in a Television Series Drama

Best Actor in a Drama Series: Jon Hamm for Mad Men

Future Golden Globe Co-Hosts: If they can't get Tina and Amy to return, perhaps the Globes should let Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer host next year's telecast.

Best Actor in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical: Matt Damon for The Martian

Best Animated Feature Film: Inside Out

Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture: Sylvester Stallone received a standing ovation when he won his first Golden Globe for his role as Rocky Balboa in Creed.

Best Screenplay: Aaron Sorkin for Steve Jobs

Most Amusing Prop of the Night: Aziz Ansari (Master of None) was reading a book called Losing to Jeffrey Tambor with Dignity when his name was announced as a nominee for Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical Series - but Gael García Bernal won instead for Mozart in the Jungle. instead of Tambor.

Best Foreign Language Film: Son of Saul from Hungary

Best Dress: Lady Gaga looked the epitome of elegance in her black gown when she won Best Actress in a Miniseries or Television Film for American Horror Story: Hotel.

Best Original Song: Sam Smith and Jimmy Napes' "Writing's on the Wall" from Spectre

Best Shocked Expression: Alan Cumming, whose hands were over his face after Gervais asked presenter Mel Gibson, “What the fuck does sugar tits even mean?” (which Gibson allegedly told a female cop during his 2006 DUI arrest). Of course, NBC bleeped this out.

Best Drama Series: USA Network's Mr. Robot

Cecil B. DeMille Award: Denzel Washington (it's too bad they didn't show a clip from his 1982-88 stint on the NBC medical drama, St. Elsewhere)

Best Director: Alejandro González Iñárritu for The Revenant

Most Amusing Props Runner-Up: Taraji P. Henson handed out cookies on her way to the stage to accept her award for Best Actress in a Drama Series for her role as Cookie Lyons on Empire.

Best Actress in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical: Jennifer Lawrence for Joy

Best Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical: The Martian

Most Unexpected Winner of the Night: There were many, but I was most surprised by Brie Larson's win for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama for her role in Room.

Best Actor in a Drama: Leonardo DiCaprio received a standing ovation when he won his third Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama for his performance in The Revenant.

Best Motion Picture - Drama: The Revenant

And that, folks, is my review of the Golden Globes. Now on to the Oscars on February 28!
