EARLIER: The Golden Globes served up some memorable moments last night, from Matthew McConaughey's drawling acceptance speech, to Amy Adams' lovely one, Jacqueline Bisset's endless one, (for that matter, the soporific acceptance speech for the high-energy "American Hustle" also seemed to go on forever), and host Amy Poehler's genuinely surprised one. 

Poehler and Tina Fey were again in top form, getting the party started with mispronouncing Tom Hanks' name ("Tam Honks"), telling Matt Damon that among the high-wattage stars in the room he "was basically a garbage person," shooting a hilarious zinger at no-show George Clooney (his character in "Gravity" would "rather float off into space and die than spend another minute with a woman his age"), and much more. 

One of the funniest lines of the night came from Best Director winner Alfonso Cuaron, thanking Sandra Bullock for not quitting "Gravity" when he seemingly asked if he could give her herpes. (Cuaron, who has an accent, was actually asking if he could give her an earpiece.)

Watch below. Our Golden Globes wrap report is here.
