Golden Globes Videos & Highlights: Jodie Foster's Tearful Speech, Fey, Poehler & More
And then there was the appearance by Bill Clinton, who took the stage to present the clip for Lincoln. A fitting but surprising presenter for the very presidential movie.
Among some of the other highlights from the event were the cast of Girls "wooing" into the microphone in absence of any other words to describe their elation for winning Best Comedy. There was also a funny Girls related moment from Fey and Poehler. After Lena Dunham beat them in the Best Actress in a Comedy award, she was sure to express her gratitude for their work, mentioning that they got her through middle school (among other things), which was meant to be complimentary, I'm sure, but also pointed out the age gap between Dunham and her competitors. Fey responded to that later during a bit with Poehler in which they both pretended to be drunk and Fey expressed just how glad she was to get her through middle school.
Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger took the stage to present for Best Foreign Film and had a funny argument over whose accent was worse.
Finally, among the more emotional moments, there was Anne Hathaway, who accepted her award for Best Supporting Actress by eloquently expressing appreciation for her fellow nominees, and Sally Field in particular.
"I have to thank you so much for being a vanguard against typecasting. Because as the girl who started out as the princess of Genovia, I can't tell you how encouraging it was to know that the flying nun grew up to be Norma Rae and grew up to be Mama Gump and grew up to be Mary Todd Lincoln."
And Jodie Foster had plenty say when she accepted this year's Cecil B. Demille Award, including a lot of build up to what sounded like a coming-out speech only to announce that she is, in fact, single. In addition to dedicating "this song" to her two sons, she also spoke of the value of privacy and later, the value of change, closing out her speech with…
"Change. You gotta love it. I will continue to tell stories, to move people by being moved. The greatest job in the world. It's just that from now on, I may be holding a different talking stick. And maybe it won't be as sparkly. Maybe it won't open on three thousand screens. Maybe it will be so quiet and delicate that only dogs can hear it whistle. But it will be my writing on the wall. Jodie Foster was here. I still am, and I want to be seen, to be understood deeply and to be not so very lonely."
The whole speech was from the heart and well spoken from beginning to end. And she looked fantastic giving it, which was just the icing on the very heartfelt and moving cake.
This year's ceremony seemed to fly by, which isn't always the case for this three-hour ceremony, that mixes and mashes TV and movies together. View the list of movies winners HERE and TV winners here.
