The Golden Globe Awards are never exactly the most streamlined and predictable affair. Not only are the best from both cinema and television living it up in the same room, but a lot of alcohol is flowing and bumbling does occur. Sometimes it seems like the voting body for the Globes, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, was also tapping the bottle, as every single year's ceremony brings a handful of eye-widening shocks. Here are the biggest surprises of the bunch.

Billy Bob Thornton's Big Win

Okay, so the Golden Globes have taught us in the past that niche can be king when it comes to recent years' winners in TV, and this year proved no different. The Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Drama went to Billy Bob Thornton for his certainly excellent performance as washed-up lawyer Billy McBride in Amazon's freshman drama Goliath, created by TV veteran David E. Kelley and frequent collaborator Jonathan Shapiro. Thornton is indeed the best part of Goliath, but he was up against favored nominees like Better Call Saul's Bob Odenkirk or Mr. Robot's Rami Malek, so our jaws definitely dropped when his name was called. The Globes love them some Amazon shows.
