The 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards were ... something.

For one thing, Ricky Gervais hosted for the fourth time. The comedian upheld the reputation he earned during his three consecutive hosting stints in 2010, 2011, and 2012, when the pointed barbs he aimed at his celebrity audience helped define him as one of the most shameless awards show emcees in recent memory. He was, to be frank, not very good.

For another, the Globes' practice of splitting movies into separate comedy and drama categories made room for nominees that often don't break through at the Oscars, most of which are comedies. So while dramas like Spotlight, The Revenant, and Carol garnered their expected nominations, comedies like Adam McKay's The Big Short, Amy Schumer's Trainwreck, and Paul Feig's Spy also earned their fair share of nods.

But The Big Short still had to face off against Ridley Scott's The Martian, which the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (which oversees the awards) also designated as a comedy. And when The Martian did indeed win for Best Comedy or Musical, the victory allowed Scott to joke that he expected to get such an honor "posthumously."

Finally: There was alcohol. Ohhhh, how there was alcohol. The Globes' open bar is by far one of the best things about the awards show, if only for the loose acceptance speeches it encourages; they tend to get increasingly freeform throughout the night. Why do you think there were so many bleeped-out words?
