The 71st Annual Golden Globes, the Oscar prequel, if you will (we will), has come and gone, but not without a handful of notable happenings. There was the red-carpet (as seen here), which was functionally a live version of Candy Crush. The yellows! The reds! That turquoise thing around Sofia Vergara's neck. And then there were all those saucy actresses, from hosts Tiny Fey and Amy Poehler to the antics of Jennifer Lawrence, Elizabeth Moss, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. See below for the most entertaining bits of the night plus a list of winners.

1. The Little Mermaid had a strange presence on the red carpet

2. Quick, watch all ten minutes of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's opening monologue (duo-logue? conversation?) before it gets pulled from YouTube:

But in case they already did, three MVP jokes went as follows:
2a. Tina: "Meryl Streep is so brilliant in August: Osage County, proving that there are still great parts in Hollywood for Meryl Streeps over 60."

2b. Tina: "Matthew McConaughey did amazing work this year. For his role in Dallas Buyers Club, he lost 45 pounds. Or what actresses call being in a movie."

2c. Amy: "Woody Allen is the recipient of this year's Cecil B. DeMille Award, just a few years after Martin Scorsese won it. I assume the award is for the tiniest man with the biggest glasses."

2d. Amy: "One of the most nominated films this year is 12 Years a Slave. I loved 12 Years a Slave and I can honestly say that after seeing that film, I will never look at slavery the same way again."

Tina: "Wait, how were you—"

Amy: "And what a year for television!"

3. Elizabeth Moss did to the mani-cam what every woman has at some point wanted to do to the mani-cam:

4. Jennifer Lawrence pretend-pushed Taylor Swift down the red carpet stairs:

5. Emma Watson introduced the pants-dress hybrid number, aka a reverse mullet dress. It's a party in the front, business in the back. No wait. Lady-in-Hollywood business in the front, business-business in the back. No wait.

6. And now, Julia Louis-Dreyfus eating a hot dog:
