The just concluded 72nd annual Golden Globe Awards function was one that will be remembered for a while, thanks to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who livened up the night with their wit and charm.

The night was high on glamour quotient, with very few celebrities going wrong with their fashion choices

Here are a few highlights from the night.

Fashion Hits: The red carpet did not disappoint as a number of celebrities such as Julianne Moore, Kate Hudson, Jennifer Lopez and Emma Stone getting it right in the fashion department.

Fashion Misses: Sadly, there were a lot of fashion disasters as well. Keira Knightley and Lorde were just two who did not impress fashion critics.

A Near Wardrobe Malfunction: No award night is complete without a wardrobe malfunction, and Jennifer Aniston became a near casualty when her slit dress exposed more than she expected.

Je Suis Charlie: A number of celebrities, such as George Clooney and wife Amal, Diane Kruger, Helen Mirren and Alexandre Desplat among others, paid tribute to Charlie Hebdo victims during Sunday's function.

Tina Fey-Amy Poehler Monologue: The duo touched upon a number of sensitive topics, which include Bill Cosby rape allegations, Sony hacking scandal and even the highly publicised George Clooney wedding.

"Amal is a human-rights lawyer who worked on the Enron case, was an adviser to Kofi Annan regarding Syria and was selected for a three-person U.N. panel investigating rules of war violations in the Gaza Strip. So tonight, her husband is getting a lifetime achievement award. How stupid!" Fey said.

Memorable Speech: Joanna Froggatt who was awarded as the best supporting actress for her role in "Downton Abbey" probably gave one of the best acceptance speech when she spoke about her character's season 4 storyline. Saying she received letters from a good number of rape survivors, Froggatt added: "One woman summed up the thoughts of many by saying she wasn't sure why she'd written — but she felt in some way she wanted to be heard. And I'd just like to say I heard you, and I hope by saying this so publicly, it means in some way you feel the world heard you."
