Love them or hate them, the Golden Globes are always a hell of a night. The 2017 ceremony brought a deluge of wins for La La Land, political speeches and honors for newbies like Atlanta and The Crown.

Below, our roundup of the best and worst from the three-hour ceremony.

The Best

The La La Land opener

on Twitter

There's nothing Hollywood loves more than Hollywood - and, of course, making fun of it. Fallon's opening number, a tribute to awards darling La La Land, was the perfect way to kick off an awards show in the city of stars.

It began - as many Los Angeles days do - with a bunch of people sitting in traffic. This time, the freeway was replaced by the Golden Globes carpet, and a sea of stretch limos. The Stranger Things squad rapped, Nicole Kidman and Amy Adams danced, and Westworld's Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) and Game of Thrones' Kit Harington made appearances.

Of course, Justin Timberlake and Fallon also shared a Ryan Gosling/Emma Stone-style dance (only after Fallon hilariously turned down Tina Fey). We'd watch that remake.

Hugh Laurie's HFPA joke

on Twitter

Despite dramatic turns like his Globe-winning work in The Night Manager, Laurie is a finely honed comedian, delivering wisecracks with a sarcastic twinkle in his eye.

"The last Golden Globes," he said while accepting his award. "I don't mean to be gloomy but it has the words 'Hollywood,' 'foreign' and 'press' in it," he said, referencing the coming Donald Trump administration.

Dev Patel and Sunny Pawar co-presenting and melting our hearts

on Twitter

Sorry Jacob Tremblay, sorry Stranger Things kids, but the most popular pint-sized red carpet celeb is Lion's Sunny Pawar, rocking his kicks and having to be lifted magnificently into the air by Dev Patel to introduce Lion's Best Motion Picture - Drama nomination.

Ryan Reynolds and Andrew Garfield kiss

While we were busy watching one of our many internet boyfriends, Ryan Gosling, talk about being a dreamy pianist in La La Land, the other Canadian Ryan (Reynolds) and Andrew Garfield shared an intimate moment. Thankfully, the internet was there for us - and made sure it was a moment we didn't miss.

And just like that: A new bromance is born. We totally 'ship it.
