The Golden Globes included everything you could want in an awards show: hilarious bits from Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, insane outfits, celebrities who brought their moms as dates, and Mel Gibson. It was a reminder, yet again, that the host you choose goes a long way toward defining what sort of product you present. But perhaps nothing received more attention in the aftermath of last night's Hollywood bash than Jodie Foster's rambling, sweet, and headline-making thank-you speech that included her coming out. Here's how the stars and normal people alike (well, okay, bloggers) reacted to the Globes.
Lena Dunham broke it down after the show for her more than 500,000 followers.
