We come for the dresses, but we stay for the winners, laughs and awkward moments.

Tonight, the 81st annual Golden Globes took place at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills. From Ray Romano and Keri Russell's hilarious bit to Ali Wong and Bill Hader's sweet PDA moment, here are eight of the most memorable moments from the 2024 ceremony.

1. Jennifer Lawrence's Epic Reaction to Emma Stone's Win

You might recall one of our favorite moments from the 2023 Golden Globes—when Jamie Lee Curtis celebrated her BFF and co-star Michelle Yeoh's win for Best Actress in a Comedy. That awesome moment inspired many to keep the trend going—and now, that includes Jennifer Lawrence.

After Emma Stone was announced as the winner for Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy, Lawrence looked ready to jump out of her seat with joy as she raised her fists and clapped with a smile. Women supporting women? We love to see it.

2. Ray Romano and Keri Russell's Bit

Easily one of the funniest moments of the night, Romano and Russell totally nailed their bit. After revealing their promise to stay "truthful" in the New Year, the pair attempted to be honest about each other's work, which turned out to be a bit trickier than they thought.

For instance, after Romano complimented Russell’s “remarkable” performance in The Americans, Russell was left speechless and struggled to return any kind words. She ultimately settled for, "I loved, um...everything you just said." Of course, Romano's reaction was pure gold.

3. Bill Hader & Taylor Swift Taking Selfies

Of all the pairs we predicted we'd see together behind the scenes, we never would have thought of Barry star Bill Hader and pop sensation, Taylor Swift. Still, the fact that Hader is a proud Swiftie just earned him all the bonus points.

4. Ali Wong & Bill Hader's PDA Moment

Fans were thrilled to see the Beef star win a trophy for Best Actress in a Limited Series, but it was Wong's congratulatory smooch from her partner, Bill Hader, that got of fans talking. (FYI, in April 2023, People reported that the two were dating, following Wong's separation from her husband Justin Hakuta.)

5. Andra Day & Jon Batiste Presenting

Day and Batiste teamed up to present the award for Best Song—Motion Picture and fans were quick to point out that the pair got even more laughs than the show's host, thanks to their effortless chemistry. In fact, some are even calling for a petition to get the two to host next year's ceremony.

One Twitter fan wrote, "Can we just have Andra Day and Jon Batiste present every award show?" Another fan tweeted, "Andra Day and Jon Batiste: The Best team!"

6. The Mini Suits Reunion

Loyal Suits fans were in for the best surprise when the main cast, including Gabriel Macht, Patrick J. Adams, Sarah Rafferty and Gina Torres, reunited on the Golden Globes stage to present the award for Best Drama TV Series.

Macht said, "There's nothing more dramatic or anxiety-inducing than waiting all night to hear that your category has finally arrived." Then, while making a not-so-subtle reference to Suits—which soared in popularity long after the series aired—Adams joked, "It's hard to imagine having to wait so long to see your show get that kind of recognition."

By then, the co-stars were joined by Torres and Rafferty, who said, "Don't forget about us." Best. Reunion. Ever.

7. Jo Koy's Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Joke

Jo Koy pulled no punches with his jokes during his opening monologue. For instance, he poked fun at Oppenheimer's long run-time and Saltburn's lengthy nude dancing scene, but perhaps his most memorable dig was at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

During his opening remarks, he said, "Turns out Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will still get paid millions of dollars for doing absolutely nothing… and that’s just by Netflix." Talk about a major burn.

8. Lily Gladstone's Winning Speech

The Killers of the Flower Moon actress received a standing ovation after a well-deserved, historic win for Best Female Actor in a Drama Motion Picture.

After speaking in her native Blackfeet language, she said, "I'm so grateful that I can speak even a little bit of my language. which I'm not fluent in up here, because in this business, native actors used to speak their lines in English and then the sound mixers would run them backward to accomplish native languages on camera. This is a historic win, it doesn't belong to just me. I'm holding it right now, I'm holding it with all my beautiful sisters."
