Hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey launched this year's Golden Globes, as the award's presenters for the third and final time, with their characteristic acerbic wit last night in front of the crowd of hollywood A-listers and award hopefuls. Nothing was off limits as the year in Hollywood was comically rounded in their opening monologue and throughout the show with an emphasis on the Sony Pictures hacking scandal (alledgedly perpetrated by North Korea). After a swipe at Angelina Jolie the pair poked fun at Seth Rogen and James Franco's The Interview joking that North Korea had made us all "pretend that we wanted to see it" and that their verdict wasn't the worst review the movie got...

George Clooney, who was married last year, and was this year's recipient of the The Cecil B. DeMille Award of Lifetime Achievement, was not to emerge from the evening unscathed as Fey listed the many impressive accomplishments of his new wife's career as a human rights lawyer, before saying, "but it's her husband who is getting a lifetime achievement award." George was later presented his award by former ER co-star Julianna Marguiles and Don Cheadle, who both joked about not being invited to his wedding in Venice. George, who was actually wearing the same tux he wore at his wedding, gave a funny and touching speech, telling Amal: "I couldn't be more proud to be your husband."

Benedict Cumberbatch and Jennifer Aniston presented the first award of the evening, for Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture. The award went to J.K Simmons for his role as a terrifying music teacher in the movie Whiplash, beating out tough competitors Edward Norton for Birdman and Ethan Hawke for Boyhood

A string of awards followed from the television category with Joanne Froggatt up as winner for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Anna in the long running TV drama Downton Abbey. Jennifer Lopez and Jeremy Renner then presented the award for Best Mini-Series of TV Movie, which was awarded the FX show Fargo. The presenting duo then announced Fargo star Billy Bob Thornton as Best Actor in a TV Miniseries or Movie. Amazon Prime drama Transparent, which details the life of a family in LA who discover their father is transgender, won Best TV Comedy.

The Theory of Everything bagged best score and thrust Eddie Redmayne into the fore as winner of the coveted Best Actor In A Motion Picture Drama with his female counterpart, Julianne Moore scooping Best Actress–Drama for her lead in the Alzheimers drama Still Alice. Michael Keaton took home the same title for Motion Picture–Comedy for his role in the Hollywood satire Birdman, which failed to get director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu a Best Film or Best Director win but landed him a Best Screenplay award. Best Director went to Richard Linklater for the twelve-year labour of love and much talked about Boyhood, which saw Patricia Arquette win Best Supporting Actress and was also crowned Best Motion Picture Drama.

The honour of Best Motion Picture Comedy/Musical went to The Grand Budapest Hotel, which is riding a wave of great success winning the award and receiving the most number of nominations for BAFTA, which were released the day before. Amy Adams won for Big Eyes and joked that she was "not prepared for this moment!"

The evening also saw Prince take to the stage making the A-list audience visibly star struck. Other appearances saw former three time host Ricky Gervais present an award.
