As the show that officially kicks off awards season, it's no surprise that the 2015 Golden Globe Awards did it with a bang. The show was filled with can't-miss moments, both hilarious and meaningful. If you missed it—or just want to relive all the greatness—we've rounded up our favorite moments:

1. Hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler kicked the night off on a hilarious note, delivering a too-funny opening monologue (just as we expected). The comediennes, clanned in their second outfits of the night, poked fun at attendees, including George Clooney, Joaquin Phoenix, Meryl Streep, and Steve Carell.

2.50 Shades of Grey costars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan took the stage to present the second award of the night for best supporting actress in a TV series, mini series, or TV movie. Seeing the stars together on stage makes us even more excited for the upcoming movie (if that's even possible).

3. A bearded Jared Leto, who sported a braid and white tuxedo, paid homage on-stage to the victims of the terrorist attack on the Charlie Hebdo offices in Paris, France last week by saying, "On vous aime. Je suis Charlie." The actor was one of many celebs to sport pins or hold signs in support of "Je Suis Charlie" on the red carpet.

4. A new show took home a trophy. The Affair, which just wrapped up its first season, won the Golden Globe for best TV show, drama. It was up against some heavy hitters: Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones, The Good Wife, and House of Cards.

5. George Clooney was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award, and took the stage to give an acceptance speech that included an adorable ode to his new wife, Amal. "Whatever alchemy it is that brought us together I couldn't be more proud to be your husband," he said. Aw!

6.Julianne Moore won the award for best actress in motion picture, drama, and gave a heartfelt and teary speech for the award. Moore has previously won two Golden Globes, but this was her first individual award for a role in a movie.

7. After receiving the award for best actor in a motion picture, drama, Eddie Redmayne, fresh off his honeymoon, adorably thanked his new wife on stage.

8. Poehler and Fey closed out their final Golden Globes hosting stint abruptly but memorably—with Margaret Cho, who acted as North Korean general Cho Young Ja throughout the show, standing alongside the duo and announcing, "Show over."
