The 2016 Golden Globes hosted by Ricky Gervais was a star-studded event as usual, and some of the best moments were unscripted.  Some highlights of the night: JLaw and AShu's comedy duet, Tom Hanks's heartfelt speech about his pal Denzel Washington, and Taraji P. Henson's celebration for her award for Best Actress in a TV Drama. If you missed it, she handed out cookies (apropos, as she played a character named 'Cookie' in the show Empire), and snapped back when the teleprompter told her to wrap up her speech: "I've waited 20 years for this. You gonna wait." Hilarity ensued when Jaime Foxx spoofed Steve Harvey's snafu at the Miss Universe pageant and we awwed when Leo and Kate reunited with a congratulatory hug. 

Brie Larson had possibly the best speech wrap-up of all time, claiming that she'd write thank you letters to all she forgot, and many predicted that Leo's Golden Globe win tonight for The Revenant would predict that he's on track to *finally* win an Oscar. JLaw and AShu's friendship gave us flashbacks of Amy and Tina (maybe these two will host in the future?), and Ricky Gervais asked Mel Gibson the awkward question that's been on his mind after all this time. From the cute to funny, awkward to accidental, check out our collection of the best gifs and relive all your favorite moments from the 2016 Golden Globes Awards.

When Kate Winslet Was Shocked by Her Win

 Kate seemed genuinely shocked that she had won Best Actress for her role in Steve Jobs, looking around in disbelief when her name was announced. Some have compared her reaction to Taylor Swift's award face, but we're willing to give Kate the benefit of the doubt.

When Kate and Leo Shared a Cute Moment

The two hugged, prompting the Twitter-verse to once again call back to Jack and Rose. Yet it was Leo's goofy, endearing facial expression and mouthed "Oh my God" that stole our hearts.

When Ryan Gosling Adorably Got Jealous of Brad Pitt

Even though it was obviously scripted, Ryan's pouty face at having to present an award with Brad Pitt was too cute. We're all for these two sharing the stage. . . there's no such thing as too much eye candy.
