Hey-o! The Tonight Show host began the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards ceremony with a star-studded La La Land musical parody and jokes about Donald Trump, as expected. But this was his first time helming the Golden Globes, and he used the country's rocky political climate as his main inspiration for the all-important opening monologue.
The pre-recorded intro then morphed into footage of Fallon sitting at a piano serenading stars in the Beverly Hilton Hotel ballroom, including "La La Land" star Ryan Reynolds. Best supporting actress victor Viola Davis, the co-star of Denzel Washington's August Wilson adaptation "Fences", alluded to the group's reputation for being wined and dined.
While Davis' march to an Oscar seems virtually assured, other picks were more idiosyncratic.
Hosted by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the Globes also hand out prizes for television and are often the first to honor new work, including drama series "Mr. Robot" in 2016.
"I made it - thank you", Taylor-Johnson said in the acceptance speech.
The TV categories are dominated by The People vs O.J. Simpson: An American Crime Story, Game of Thrones and newcomers like Stranger Things, The Crown, This Is Us and Westworld.
Laurie was one of the few early winners to pepper his acceptance speech with comments about Trump. The favourite of the night Emma Stone, who has been nominated for the Best Actress in a Motion Picture (Comedy or Musical) for "La La Land", turned heads in a soft pink Valentino gown.
