The 71st Annual Golden Globes aired Sunday night on NBC with “American Hustle”, “Parks and Recreation”, “Behind the Candelabra”, “Breaking Bad”, “Dallas Buyers Club” and the new “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” emerging as the biggest winners of the awards show presentation. But it was “Twelve Years a Slave” that surprised many and took home the Best Motion Picture - Drama Golden Globe Award.

For the second year in a row, the comedy team of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted the Golden Globes and didn’t disappoint with humorous jokes and parodies. Fans were thrilled when the 42-year-old, blonde co-host won her first Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Comedy Series for “Parks and Recreation”, as was Tina Fey who quipped she'd see Poehler in hell.

Woody Allen received the Cecile B. DeMille Award, but didn’t attend Hollywood’s biggest bash and instead, Diane Keaton accepted the honor on his behalf.
