There's a reason they call the Golden Globes one of the biggest nights in Hollywood—because they're jam-packed with moments. 

For the 77th time, the Golden Globes unfolded in star-studded fashion on Sunday night at the Beverly Hilton in Calif., helmed by returning host Ricky Gervais. And, with a room filled with such stars, there was plenty for the cameras to capture. 

Of course, there were the exciting wins, like the first for Farewell star Awkwafina and the fifth for Marriage Story actress Laura Dern. There was a signature roast from fifth-time host Gervais and a speech from Cecil B. DeMille Award honoree Tom Hanksthat instantly melted our hearts. Carol Burnett Award recipient Ellen DeGeneres brought the laughs while Joker winner Joaquin Phoenix made a declaration of love and nominee Beyoncé managed to magically appear in the audience.

Needless to say, Sunday's ceremony gave pop culture fans plenty to talk about come Monday morning—and that was just the ceremony. 

Fortunately for curious fans watching from home, photographers chronicled every big moment and the unfiltered little ones in between. From red carpet reunions and smooches to Tiffany Haddish befriending a law enforcement dog, there was no telling it all would unfold at Sunday's main event—but we're glad we have the pictures to prove it all and remember it for years to come.

With all that glamour, laughs and candor, it's no surprise the star-studded evening, which aired on NBC, was primetime's no. 1 top rated entertainment broadcast since the 2019 Oscars—and the most-watched entertainment show since May's Big Bang Theory series finale.
