by at .

Two moving movies and one HBO television show won big at the 2018 Golden Globes.

But what were the moments everyone is talking about in the aftermath of a unique ceremony that dedicated over three hours of speeches and presentations to victims of sexual harassment?

From a winning monologue to a bold two words uttered by a former Oscar winner, scroll down to find out...

1. The Host with the Most...

The Host with the Most...
... great jokes. Seth Meyers receives strong marks for a monologue that was both funny, relevant and unafraid to call out the major names who have been busted for sexual misconduct.

2. Nicole Kidman Won the First Award of the Night...

... and then said this: "Keith Urban, when my cheek is against yours, everything melts away — and that is love. It's true. I love you so much." Total and complete swoon.

3. Natalie Portman Wore Black...

... but she also used words to speak out against the power imbalance in Hollywood. While introducing the nominated Best Directors with Ron Howard, Portman, the actress tossed in two words a pair of important and pointed words: "And here are the ALL MALE nominees..."

4. Friends Forever?

Friends Forever?
More like icon forever. Jennifer Aniston was all of us in presenting on stage with her idol, Carol Burnett. Their bit included the veteran comedian mistaking the actress for Will & Grace star Debra Messing... and Aniston finally getting the chance to tug her idol's ear.

5. Sterling K. Brown Makes History

Brown earned the trophy for best actor in a television series in a drama, becoming the first black man to do so. He then said on stage: "[Series creator] Dan Fogelman throughout the majority of my career I've benefited from color blind casting. Like, 'Hey let's throw a brother in this role.' It’s really cool, but then Dan, you wrote a role for a black man that could only be played by a black man. So what I really appreciate about this thing is I’m being seen for who I am and being appreciated for who I am, and it makes it that much more difficult to dismiss me and anyone who looks like me. So thank you, Dan."

6. Tonya Harding for None of the Wins

Allison Janney won for her role in I, Tonya, a movie that paints the former figure skater as a victim. The winner then gave Harding, who was in attendance, a shout-out. Isn't this still the same person who has admitted she knew ahead of time of a planned attack against Nancy Kerrigan?!? Perhaps she doesn't deserve such honor and recognition.
