Beverly Hills, on the night of the Golden Globes, seems the furthest place from politics. But even the most well-heeled among us, the privileged and the glamorous, couldn't ignore the overwhelming state of our nation and its effect on us all.

Some statements drew applause - even tears - while others didn't go over so well. Here are the biggest moments to recall.
