Catching up with the Golden Globes

So, we all know about the whole Meryl Streep/Donald Trump thing that happened at last night's 74th annual Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles.

But what else happened?

There were awards handed out, you know. "La La Land" took home most of them — seven in all, which sets a record for most Globes won by a film. The previous record was five, which (Huffington Post points out) was a five-way tie between "Doctor Zhivago" (1965), "Love Story" (1970), "The Godfather" (1972), "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" (1975), and "A Star is Born" (1976).

In addition to best picture (musical or comedy), "La La Land" picked up awards for actors Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, director Damien Chazelle, and honors for screenplay, score and song.

Stone had a nice Giphy moment when Chazelle was named best director.

But that's why we love her so much.

And speaking of Gosling ... as if the ladies don't already fall all over themselves for him, his acceptance speech was enough to pull in the last holdouts with his heartfelt thanks to his wife Eva Mendes:

But before Gosling gave us all the feels, there was an amazing moment between Ryan Reynolds (a fellow nominee in the category) and Andrew Garfield.

Seems that Garfield was offering some consolation to Reynolds for not winning. But it made for a winning moment, for sure (and YouTube's Match Day captured it perfectly):

Then, there was the whole Sofia Vergara "anal" joke.

Here's the end game: The "Modern Family" star came onstage to introduce this year's Miss Golden Globes (always a child of a celebrity).

Twitter couldn't figure out if it was planned or a mistake. (It was planned.)

This year's Miss Golden Globes was Sylvester Stallone's three daughters — Sophia, 20, Sistine, 18, and Scarlet, 14.

We couldn't go without mentioning host Jimmy Fallon's opening. It was pretty slick, with references to most of the night's nominees. Fallon, expectedly, got some pretty sick starpower to help him out.

Then, there was a pretty humorous exchange between Steve Carrell and Kristen Wiig, who came out to present the award for best animated film. We can't be sure if it was improvised, but it felt like it. And it felt like comedy gold.

One of the more surprising moments happened when French actress Isabelle Huppert picked up the Globe for best actress in a drama for her role in the controversial film "Elle," in which she plays a woman who is raped.

"Oh my god! Thank you! Thank you!" Huppert gushed. "My heart is beating. If you could hear what is going on here!"

This was Huppert's first Golden Globe nomination. The 63-year-old actress was considered a bit of a dark horse in competitive category that included Natalie Portman for "Jackie," Jessica Chastain for "Miss Sloane," Amy Adams for "Arrival" and Ruth Negga for "Loving."

At one point, Fallon halted the ceremony to honor the recent passing of Carrie Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds with this touching tribute:

And we couldn't end without giving some shout out to the fashion at the Globes. Since we weren't on the red carpet (not to mention have NO sense of fashion whatsoever), we turn to the folks at Clevver Style for the scoop:

Sheetz makes top 10 gas stations in America

A Pennsylvania-based convenience store chain is getting some national attention in GasBuddy's gas station rankings.

Back in May we reported that Sheetz topped the fuel guide's list of best restrooms in Pennsylvania, as well as Maryland, Ohio and West Virginia. But the latest survey shows Sheetz customers elevating the Altoona company to the eighth slot in overall love across America.

Those wonderful Sheetz restrooms didn't make the national top five. In fact, Sheetz was excluded from the top slots for cleanliness, customer service, outdoor lighting and, yes, even coffee.
