The "Rise Up" singer also shouted out her competition, which consisted of Viola Davis from Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, Vanessa Kirby from Pieces of a WomanNomadland's Frances McDormand and Carey Mulligan from Promising Young Woman.

However, she gave the most love to the late jazz legend, saying, "Tthe amazing transformative, dynamic, Billie Holiday that just transformed me with this role, and her spirit... I love you."

Christopher Polk/NBC/NBCU Photo Bank via Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Very nice! Sacha Baron Cohen and Borat Subsequent Moviefilm won the 2021 Golden Globes for Best Actor and Best Film in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy, respectively, on Sunday. 

Cohen first accepted the award for Best Film and gave a surprising shout out to the former Mayor of New York City. 

"I’ve got to say, this movie could not have been possible without my co-star, a fresh new talent who came from nowhere and turned out to be a comedy genius," he began. "I’m talking about Rudy Giuliani. I mean, who can get more laughs out of one unzipping? Incredible."

"Our movie was just the beginning for him," he quipped. "Rudy went on to star in a string of comedy films. Hits like ‘Four Seasons Landscaping,’ ‘Hair Dye Another Day,’ and the courtroom drama ‘A Very Public Fart.’”

Moments later, the 49-year-old comedian snagged the Best Actor award -- which he also won 15 years ago for the first installment of Borat

Cohen appeared virtually with his wife Isla Fisher and kept his acceptance speech short and sweet -- but not without a few more jokes. 

Taking a jab at former President Donald Trump and claims that the 2020 election was subject to voter fraud, Cohen joked, "Hold on, Donald Trump is contesting the result. He's claiming that a lot of dead people voted which is a very rude thing to say about the HFPA."

Cohen was also nominated for Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture for The Trial of the Chicago 7 but fell short to Daniel Kaluuya in Judas and the Black Messiah.

"He would thank god. He would thank his parents, he would thank his ancestors for their guidance and their sacrifice," she tearfully relayed as her husband's costars began wiping away tears. "He would say something beautiful, something inspiring, something that would amplify that little voice inside of all of us that tells you, you can, that tells you to keep going, that calls you back to what you're meant to be doing in this moment."

"I don't have his words but we have to take all the moments to celebrate those we love," she closed out, before turning her attention on the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

"Thank you HFPA for this opportunity to do exactly that," she said before speaking directly to her husband, telling him, "Hun, you keep 'em coming."

Peter Kramer/NBC/NBCU Photo Bank via Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Rosamund Pike took home the award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical for I Care a Lot at the 2021 Golden Globes on Sunday. 

This is the first Golden Globe for the British actress who won over her fellow talented actresses including Maria Bakalova in Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, Kate Hudson in Music, Michelle Pfeiffer in French Exit, and Anya Taylor-Joy in Emma.

Pike excitedly accepted the award, "Wow. I bet it looks like I care a lot. I do!" She also took a jab at Rudy Giuliani saying that having to swim out of a sunken car was better than being in a room with him -- a nod to Bakalova's scene in the Borat sequel.

Rich Polk/NBC(LOS ANGELES) -- With nominees accepting their speeches at home, where they are far away from the Golden Globes' open bar, host Amy Poehler continued the time-honored tradition of messy drunken acceptance speeches by tapping Kenan Thompson and Maya Rudolph to make one happen.

"Something we all enjoy about the Golden Globes --- you are usually guaranteed one truly messy acceptance speech that goes awry and it's our responsibility as hosts to make it happen for you," said Poehler. "It's how we get the show to be three hours long."

So, to help put on the brakes, she whipped up a fake category: Least Original Song in a Telefilm, Dramedy or Drama and declared Beverly Jackfruit and Francois Gene Rudy -- Rudolph and Thompson, respectively -- as the winners.

The two Saturday Night Live stars pretended to stumble up to the stage, where Rudolph immediately kicked off all three of her shoes and mistakenly called Poehler "Tina."

"Forgive me, I had a vodka epidural before we came here," Rudolph jokingly slurred before kicking off the rambling three-minute acceptance speech, which inferred the two were siblings and a happy couple.

"You are taking so much time with it and you are making everyone nervous, I love it so much," Poehler cracked toward the end.

The skit ended with the fake music composers thanking "Miller lite and the gentle motion of a hay ride" for making their win possible and declaring that "space lasers control the weather."
