Surprise winners and colorful language mark this year's Golden Globes

See also

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey returned for the second consecutive year to host the 71st Annual Golden Globes at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Hollywood, CA. The Sunday evening event went well with one of the hosts taking home an award for herself while the rest of the winners playfully slipped profanity into their speeches (Looking at you Diane Keaton and Jacqueline Bisset).

Keaton sang the praises of Woody Allen while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award on his behalf. She cursed when she mentioned how Allen would respond to her gushing over him, proving that she must really love Allen after a 45-year friendship. What she uttered cannot be repeated here but apparently, Allen has a dirty mouth.

The surprises dominated the other news of the night. Poehler took home her first Golden Globe for her lead role in Parks and Recreation while other stars like Jacqueline Bisset and Andy Sandberg improvised their speeches because neither expected to win.

Speaking of Bisset, it's amazing that the show wrapped up on time considering how long it took her to get to the podium. However, it was one of those long walks that was rife with emotion as Bisset tried to keep her composure. She remained silent in the beginning of her speech but later thanked those who supported her and cursed when mentioning those who made her life difficult, inserting a great line from her mother:

"I want to thank the people who have given me joy and the people who have given me sh*t, I say like my mother--what did she say? She used to say, 'Go to hell or don't come back,'" quoted Bisset.

Best. Line. Of. The. Night.
