Tina Fey and Amy Poehler got thumbs up on Twitter as hosts of this year's Golden Globes.

"Can Tina and Amy host everything?" one user asked.

Their fellow Saturday Night Live alums Kristin Wiig and Will Ferrill also began trending after their bit presenting the award for lead actress in a motion picture comedy or musical.

The pair inaccurately recapped each of the nominee's films, and when they mentioned Meryl Streep the camera panned to her Hope Springs co-star Tommy Lee Jones, who wasn't laughing.

Soon Jones became a trending topic on Twitter and a clip of the moment went viral.

Viewers also took to social media to lament Daniel Day-Lewis getting the "wrap it up" music during his acceptance speech for the lead actor award.

They called the Lincoln actor a living legend who does not deserve to be played off the stage.

Twitter users may also have a longer memory than one might imagine.

Homeland is one of the most popular shows on TV, but when Damien Lewis took to the stage to accept his Golden Globe it reminded many of his performance in the HBO miniseries Band of Brothers. That became a trending topic too.
