Last night the 69th annual Golden Globes were awarded, and we had a kinder, gentler Ricky Gervais as a host.

After last year’s controversial event, many people thought Gervais would stick to his gameplan , but with the exception of an isolated jab here and there, the troubling moments were few.

And while the award presentations themselves brought some surprises, others hardly required a crystal ball — like perennial winner Meryl Streep taking home a record-breaking eighth trophy.
