  • Best Acceptance Speech: Adele, who took home the Golden Globe in the Original Song category for “Skyfall.” "Oh my God! Oh my God! Oh my God…We've literally come for a night out.

She was nominated alongside Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Zooey Deschanel. "Congratulations Lena, I'm glad we got you through middle school," host Tina Fey (sort of) joked in response.
