After seven decades, the Golden Globes can still surprise us. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association offered a particularly entertaining show this year — thanks not only to winning hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler or a wealth of surprising awards victors — but to the array of unplanned weird s**t that happened during the ceremony’s three-hour run-time. The kind of madness you cannot plan, and certainly cannot contain. Practical goofs, drunken faux pas, and the odd reference to genitalia. This is the stuff that made the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards one to remember.
