Once again, some people loved Ricky Gervais in his second try as Golden Globes host, and some people (Angelina Jolie, Bruce Willis and Scientologists, to name a few) might have found his attempts at humor left something to be desired. But the 68th annual Golden Globes were definitely chock-full of memorable moments, some fan-pleasing wins and fashion statements both fabulous and tragic. So, we've rounded-up some of the best (and worst) in all those categories, and here they are:

Best Ricky Gervais opening speech zinger: Making a lot of jokes about 'The Tourist,' then admitting he hasn't even seen it. "Who has?" he asked.
Worst Ricky Gervais opening speech zinger: A Hugh Hefner-as-old-and-engaged joke.
Best rebound Ricky Gervais opening speech zinger: A Hugh Hefner's bride-to-be gagging-in-horror joke made at the expense of Hugh Hefner's penis.
Most daring Gervais jab: About 'I Love You Phillip Morris': "Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor ... two heterosexual actors pretending to be gay. So, the complete opposite of some famous Scientologists then," said Ricky. "My lawyers helped me with the wording of that joke. They're not here."
Least daring Gervais jab: "Get ready for a night of partying and heavy drinking. Or as Charlie Sheen calls it, breakfast!" It just isn't possible to tell a Charlie Sheen joke that hasn't already been made.
Best whatever else happens the rest of the night, this year's Globes rock moment: 'Sons of Anarchy' star Katey Sagal finally getting recognition as the most fierce actress on TV with her Best Actress in a Television Drama win.
Best whatever else happens the rest of the night, this year's Globes rock moment, part deux: 'Glee' star Chris Colfer's win for Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television. And Colfer's message to kids who fear they can't be who they want to be: "Screw that!" And admit it, you got teary.
Best fashion statement: Olivia Wilde's gorgeous, sparkly, princess-y Marchesa gown, which joins our list of the all-time best awards show gowns, right up there with Uma Thurman's 1995 lilac Prada classic.
Worst fashion statement: Scarlett Johansson's hair ... and whatever aerodynamic bicycle helmet she used to shape it.
Best post-public break-up look: Eva Longoria, looking gorgeous in a black, form-fitting Zac Posen gown.
Worst post-public break-up look: See Johansson, aerodynamic hair, above.
Best Ricky Gervais intro: After reading a list of the actor's most forgettable movies, introducing Bruce Willis as "Ashton Kutcher's dad."
Worst Ricky Gervais intro if he wanted to avoid a throwdown backstage: See above.
Best fashion trend of the evening: The gaggle of gorgeous green gowns, worn by the likes of Catherine Zeta-Jones, Elisabeth Moss, Angelina Jolie and Mila Kunis.
Worst fashion trend of the evening: The orangey-yellow gowns sported by Katie Lee and Kyra Sedgwick. Kraft mac and cheese isn't really a good look on anyone. Runner-up: bangs. Ladies, they don't make you look younger, but rather like someone who's trying to look younger.
Best almost-admission by an actor that his movie kind of sucked: While accepting his Cecile B. DeMille Award, Robert De Niro kinda 'fessed up about the quality of 'Little Fockers,' thanking the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for announcing he'd be the recipient of the award "well before you had the chance to review 'Little Fockers' ... it's okay, we all have our jobs to do."
Best you're-supposed-to-laugh-at-her celeb moment: Jane Lynch, accepting the Globe for Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television, joking, "I am nothing if not falsely humble."
Best you're-not-supposed-to-laugh-at-her celeb moment: Helen Mirren, introducing Best Drama Picture nominee 'The King's Speech,' told the audience, "You might think this is kind of a British thing, but this film was inseminated in Australia, thanks to the imagination ...." Sorry, Helen, but you lost us at the word "inseminated." And we weren't the only ones ... we swear we heard a few giggles from the tables at the Beverly Hilton, too.
Best "it still sounds classy because he's British" moment: Best Actor in a Motion Picture -- Drama winner Colin Firth, describing his relationship with his 'The King's Speech' co-star Geoffrey Rush and director Tom Hooper as a "surprisingly robust triangle of man love."
Best "we like her, but why is she here?" moment: Alicia Keys introducing a psychological thriller, Best Motion Picture -- Drama nominee 'Black Swan.'
Best we like him (or have purchased one of his songs on iTunes), but why is he here? moment: The Biebs. Why was The Biebs at the Globes?
Classiest co-worker moment: 'Big Bang Theory' female lead Kaley Cuoco literally jumping for joy when she got to present co-star Jim Parsons with the Best Actor in a Television Series, Comedy or Musical Golden Globe.
Classiest Hollywood moment: A standing ovation for cancer-stricken Michael Douglas, who, after earlier in the evening confirming that he appears to be beating the disease, seemed touched, and responded with the night's classiest quip: "There's got to be an easier way to get a standing ovation."
Best he's an equal-opportunity offender Gervais jab: While signing off for his second consecutive Globes hosting performance, Ricky Gervais proved it's not just the Scientologists he wants to bug. "Thank you to God, for making me an atheist," he said.
