Another year, another Golden Globes ceremony. L.A.-set musical La La Land was the big winner, with seven trophies, including Best Picture — Musical or Comedy. On the TV side, the BBC's The Night Manager won three Golden Globes, including Best Actor, Mini-Series or Television Movie, for Tom Hiddleston (who decided to further congratulate himself with his acceptance speech). The night was capped with Moonlight winning for Best Picture — Drama. Take a look at the big moments—aside from Meryl Streep bringing down the house— from the show, plus the winners:

- Host Jimmy Fallon's opening of the Golden Globes began as a spoof of La La Land's much ballyhooed opening. Besides nominees Nicole Kidman, Amy Adams, Sarah Paulson, Courtney B Vance, Sterling K. Brown, Rami Malek, Evan Rachel Wood and Ryan Reynolds taking part, there was the cast of Stranger Things (with a lot of Barb!), Kit Harrington, Tina Fey and Justin Timberlake (who does a great Fallon impression) also lent a hand:

Oh, la la! Watch and dance along to the #GoldenGlobes cold open.

- During his acceptance speech for Best Actor (Comedy or Musical), Ryan Gosling paid tribute to his partner, Eva Mendes:

- But back to Fallon's hosting...

But when he was there... ugh:

- Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig were actually funny:

- On the "back to the drawing board" side: Sofia Vergara made anal jokes (she meant "annual"):

- Fine, it was incredibly adorable when Lion actor Dev Patel was on stage with Sunny Pawer, who played the same character as young boy:

- It helped everyone forget about this horror:

- Michael Keaton mistakenly called the film Hidden Figures "Hidden Fences," possibly mixing up the another African-American film, Fences.

This sparked #HiddenFences hashtag:

- Best animated feature Zootopia's team said, "We wanted to make a film that not only entertained kids but also spoke to adults about embracing diversity even when there are people who want to divide us by using fear. On top of all that, we still managed to fit in a joke about a sloth working at the DMV.”

- Tom Hiddleston dedicated his Best Actor (for TV movie or limited series) award to aid workers in South Sudan... as well as himself?
