The 73rd Golden Globes aired on Sunday with wins for the usual suspects like Jon Hamm as well as for some Globes newcomers like Lady Gaga.

Ricky Gervais hosted the night making a slew of transphobic jokes about Caitlyn Jenner, “The Danish Girl” and “Transparent” star Jeffrey Tambor.

“I’ve changed. Not as much as Bruce Jenner, obviously. Now Caitlyn Jenner, of course. What a year she’s had. She became a role model for trans people everywhere, showing great bravery in breaking down barriers and destroying stereotypes. She didn’t do a lot for women drivers, but you can’t have everything,” Gervais joked.

Lady Gaga won for Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or TV Motion Picture for her role as the Countess in “American Horror Story: Hotel.”

The pop singer thanked most of the “AHS: Hotel” cast by name when accepting the award, including creator Ryan Murphy, and said acting had been her original plan.

“So thank you for sharing your talent with me. I wanted to be an actress before I wanted to be a singer, but music worked out first,” Lady Gaga said during her emotional speech.

Sam Smith and songwriter Jimmy Napes also accepted the award for Best Original Song for James Bond song “Writing’s on the Wall.”

“I genuinely didn’t think we were gonna get this,” Smith said at the podium.
