You can always count on Golden Globe winners to provide an awkward moment or two, usually in direct correlation to how late it is in the night and how much booze has been consumed. This year, however, there were interesting winning moments from start to finish: Here are 10 memorable winning moments from last night’s show (and a full list of winners below).

Matthew McConaughey wins Best Actor in a Drama for “Dallas Buyers Club,” makes “Dazed and Confused” reference

Yep, a gleeful McConaughey bounced on stage declaring, “Alright alright alright,” his famous line from his first big movie. McConaughey, expected to win after his extreme weight loss to play an AIDS patient in “Dallas Buyers Club,” continued with a heartfelt speech about the challenges presented in making the film. He claimed it was turned down “86 times” over two decades. “I’m so glad it got passed on so many times,” he said. “Really glad it got passed on so many times or it wouldn’t have come to me.” He also got emotional thanking his mom, as well as his wife, Camilla, and kids. Apparently, Camilla’s words as he leaves the house are, “Go get it, McConaughey, my man, my king.”

“Breaking Bad” continues award-winning streak with Best TV Drama, and Aaron Paul has a moment to shine

Just after Bryan Cranston picked up a trophy for Best Actor in a TV Drama, the entire cast got the chance to take the stage when the show won Best TV Drama. Creator Vince Gilligan let Aaron Paul have a spot at the microphone and wrap it all up with his famous catchphrase from the show: “Yeah, b****!”

Cate Blanchett wins for “Blue Jasmine,” proves she’s an awards show expert

With “a few vodkas under my belt” Blanchett delivered the effortless, charming speech as a woman who is used to this kind of thing, picking up her prize for Best Actress in a Drama. “I just wondered, can people at home hear this music?” she asked as the orchestra tried to play her off the stage. “Or do they suddenly just think you’re getting really fast because you’re having a panic attack? Which I’m probably having.”

Sean “P Diddy” Combs briefly crashes Alex Ebert’s win for Original Movie Score

As musician Ebert (of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros) ambled on stage to pick up his trophy for “All Is Lost,” Diddy did a double take. “He was on a boat with me partying in St. Bart’s. And now here we are together!” he marveled to the audience, patting Ebert on the shoulder. “He came up from behind me, and unbuttoned my jacket and said, ‘Let it flow’!” Ebert confirmed. “It was impressive.”

Jacqueline Bisset gets show off to a weird, slow start during “Dancing on the Edge” win

It took Bisset (winner for Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Miniseries or TV Movie)  a long, long time to get to the stage. Whenshe did, her speech was filled with long, long pauses, and a fierce determination to outlast the orchestra music trying to play her off.

Amy Poehler gets real when she wins Best Actress in a TV Comedy

And by real, we mean undeniably nervous and flustered — unusual for the comedian who’s usually always “on.” (But at least she got to make out with Bono, first.)

Andy Samberg is as surprised as everyone else when his name is called for Best Actor in a TV Comedy

“Oh no!” the former “SNL” star cried. “I — didn’t prepare anything, it wasn’t going to happen. Golden Globes, right? Who knew?” The creator of the show, Dan Goor, was just as stunned when the entire cast took the stage as they beat out frontrunners “Modern Family” and “Girls” for Best TV Comedy.

Michael Douglas shares some history about “Behind the Candelabra” as he wins Best Actor in a Miniseries or TV Movie

If Michael Douglas’s acceptance speech is to be believed, director Steven Soderbergh had designs on making a Liberace biopic for years. Apparently, he looked pensively at Douglas while the two were in the middle of filming a scene in 1999′s “Traffic,” and asked him, “You ever thought about Liberace?” And now, 14 years later, Douglas has a Golden Globe for playing the glittery role.

U2 pays tribute to Nelson Mandela after winning Best Original Song for “Ordinary Love” (seen in “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom”)

“We have been working for President Mandela since the ’70s,” guitarist the Edge told the crowd, saying that the group performed an anti-Apartheid concert decades ago. “It’s taken us 35 years to write this song.”

Leonardo DiCaprio reminds us about the ridiculousness of this year’s “comedy or musical” category

After getting a win for Best Actor in Comedy or Musical (for his role in “The Wolf of Wall Street”), DiCaprio cracked that he would also like to thank his “fellow comedians” in the category:  Christian Bale (“American Hustle), Oscar Isaac (“Inside Llewyn Davis”), Bruce Dern (“Nebraska”) and Joaquin Phoenix (“Her”), none of whose roles were packed with laugh lines.
