The Golden Globes, that other movie awards ceremony, happened last night, and between hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, and other lovely ladies and gents in attendance, there were quite a few clips you’re probably interested in seeing again. And if you didn’t see them the first time, then you should come on in and watch Tony Stark give Lois Lane a Golden Globe, find out who got an award straight from the Khaleesi, and who showed up for a tiny Pirates of the Caribbean reunion.

We begin with Robert Downey, Jr. making his traditional award show appearance seemingly in character as Tony Stark.

Continue to Emilia Clarke awarding a Bono-kissing Amy Poehler her first Golden Globe for Leslie Knope.

And then Orlando Bloom and Zoe Saldana making a teeny little Pirates of the Caribbean reunion to hand out the award. For the first one anyway. Someday, someone will tell us what happened to Anamaria between the first and second movies. (Hopefully, Jack got her that boat.)

And while those were by far the moments of the awards with the most geek cred, there are still a few you’re going to want to look at if you have any hope of pretending that you totally watched the Golden Globes instead of waiting for the Game of Thrones trailer.

Emma Thompson chucks some Louboutins across the stage while holding a martini.

And, of course you want to watch Amy and Tina’s monologue.

And for your final step on the way to true 2014 Golden Globes mastery, here’s the full list of the winners:
