BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Show Bits brings you the 70th annual Golden Globes awards through the eyes of Associated Press journalists. Follow them on Twitter where available with the handles listed after each item.
The Golden Globes' shrewdest choices may not have had anything to do with those nominated for awards.
At midpoint in Sunday's broadcast, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey were poised to be the night's big winners for their roles as co-hosts.
Poehler had promised not to be "edgy or offensive tonight," as past host Ricky Gervais had been in many viewers' eyes.
"Because as Ricky learned the hard way, when you run afoul of the Hollywood Foreign Press, they make you host this show two more times," Poehler said.
She and Fey weren't edgy or offensive. Just charming, irreverent and hilarious.
That should be grounds for having to host the Globes two more times — at least.

Jeremy Irons had stepped outside the Golden Globes show and was preparing himself a hand-rolled cigarette when he stopped in mid-roll and pocketed his tobacco.
"Wait, I want to see Jodie," he said.
He rushed back inside the ballroom in time to see Jodie Foster accept the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement from Robert Downey, Jr.

Toby Jones dropped a little scoop on the next chapter in "The Hunger Games" series.
"It's obviously bigger and a different kind of film this time, more centered on the games themselves," he said on the red carpet at the Golden Globes.
Jones was at the awards show as a nominee for best actor in a miniseries or movie for his performance as Alfred Hitchcock in HBO's "The Girl." He lost out to Kevin Costner.
The actor will reprise his role of Claudius Templesmith in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," and of course Globe winner Jennifer Lawrence will be back as Katniss Everdeen.
