Matthew McConaughey took best actor in a drama for his performance in the Texas HIV drama "Dallas Buyers Club." Leonardo DiCaprio, a nine-time Golden Globe nominee, won his second Globe for best actor in a comedy for his work in "The Wolf of Wall Street."

Alfonso Cuaron won best director for the space odyssey "Gravity."

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, last year’s co-hosts, picked up where they left off, starting the 71st annual Golden Globes with a torrent of punch lines that lambasted Matt Damon, Meryl Streep and, naturally, George Clooney. The audience roared most of all when Fey described "Gravity," which co-stars Clooney.

"George Clooney would rather float away in space and die than spend one more minute with a woman his own age," said Fey.

Spike Jonze was blindsided by his best screenplay win for his futuristic romance "Her."

"I’m a terrible public speaker," said Jonze. "And I’m bad at English. And it’s the only language I know."

Four months after its final episode, AMC’s "Breaking Bad" won for best drama TV series and best actor in a drama series for Bryan Cranston (both their first Globes). Cranston called his honor "a lovely way to say goodbye." Creator Vince Gilligan said the award gave him "one more chance to thank the fans of the show."

U2 and Danger Mouse won the award for best original song for "Ordinary Love," recorded for the Nelson Mandela biopic "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom." Bono said working on the film completed a decades-long journey with Mandela, having played an anti-apartheid concert some 35 years ago.

"This man turned our life upside down, right-side up," said Bono of the South African leader who died in December. "A man who refused to hate not because he didn’t have rage or anger or those things, but that he thought love would do a better job."

As expected, the Emmy-winning HBO film "Behind the Candelabra," the acclaimed Liberace drama directed by Steven Soderbergh, won for best movie or miniseries, as well as best actor in a TV film for Michael Douglas. He thanked his co-star Matt Damon, who curiously became a kind of mascot throughout the evening. (Poehler said in such a starry crowd, Damon was "basically a garbage person.")

"The only reason you’re not here is I had more sequins," Douglas told Damon.
