Hollywood’s biggest stars came out to the Beverly Hilton Hotel for last night’s 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards.

Hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler led the night with laughs. “It’s the only night of the year where the beautiful people of film rub shoulders with the rat-faced people of television,” Poehler quipped as the show began. The two Saturday Night Live alums were in their element as they cracked jokes about their fellow Hollywood stars, even the Hollywood Foreign Press Association itself.

“We have no intention of being edgy or offensive tonight because as Ricky Gervais found out the hard way, when you run afoul of the Hollywood Foreign Press, they make you host this show two more times,” joked Poehler on previous host Ricky Gervais‘ absence.

She continued commenting on Kathryn Bigelow and the controversy surrounding “Zero Dark Thirty,“ “when it comes to torture I trust the woman who spent three years married to James Cameron.” But Fey didn’t let Poehler have all the fun as she continued commentating on Anne Hathaway‘s performance in “Les Misérables,” “I have not seen someone so totally alone and abandoned since you were on stage with James Franco at the Oscars.”

Far more entertaining than other award shows as of late, the Globes were filled with many memorable moments.

Among them, former U.S. President Bill Clinton joined the stage — as jaws dropped across the audience — to introduce a montage for the presidential film, “Lincoln.”

The President of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (that would be the organization that votes for the winners) took a cue from Carly Rae Jepsen asking “Silver Linings Playbook” star Bradley Cooper to “call her maybe.”

Perhaps the most memorable moment of the entire evening came from 50 year-old Jodie Foster. The actress and director accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award for Lifetime Achievement, with a proclamation of “I’m 50!” Her her emotional, funny, and a little all-over-the-place speech, was without a doubt one of the most intelligent and inspiring speeches of the evening as she finally, publicly acknowledged that she’s gay.
