The 78th Golden Globes took place on Sunday, and you might've overlooked some of the best details from the night.

Hosted by Tina Fey in New York and Amy Poehler in Beverly Hills, the virtual ceremony was filled with plenty of awkward technical difficulties and impressive looks.

Here's a look at some of the details from the 2021 Golden Globes that you may have missed:

Anya Taylor-Joy's checkered manicure seemed like a nod to 'The Queen's Gambit'

With her blonde hair, Taylor-Joy is almost unrecognizable as the actress who played red-haired Beth Harmon on Netflix's limited drama "The Queen's Gambit."

But the actress, who won Golden Globes for the limited chess series and the period film "Emma," might've paid tribute to Beth with her middle finger -part of her manicure seemed to resemble a chessboard.

Jane Fonda rewore an outfit from 1996

The actress and activist appeared to accept the Cecil B. DeMille Award in an ivory suit that's at least 25 years old.

As Insider's Amanda Krause reported, Fonda previously wore the outfit in 1996 when she attended the Shape Magazine Awards with her son.

"I vowed a couple of years ago I would never buy any new clothes again," Fonda told Ellen DeGeneres ahead of the ceremony. "We spend too much money, we buy too many things, and then we get rid of them. We try to develop our identity by shopping, right? We gotta stop that. Stop all this consumerism."

Sarah Paulson sported a cast with a designer logo on it

Paulson, who was nominated for her work on "Ratched," wore a black Prada gown and a cast with the Italian luxury brand's logo on it.

Her stylist, Karla Welch, wrote on Instagram, "When you're Lady Paulson, you get a custom Prada cast to go with your custom Prada dress."

According to Vogue, Paulson's arm was reportedly injured on the set of "American Crime Story."

Nicola Coughlan's incorporated her 'Bridgerton' family color into her look for the evening

The star wore a pastel-yellow tulle dress with diamond jewelry for the Golden Globes.

"Bridgerton" fans are used to seeing her in this color, as she often wore it when she played Penelope Featherington.

Coughlan also had green clips in her hair - a possible nod to the other popular Featherington family color.

January Jones and Kiernan Shipka brought back their Golden Globes dresses from 2011

When the pair wore these dresses a decade prior they were costars on "Mad Men." Both actresses posted about their throwback outfits on Instagram.

"hey @januaryjones I heard we're putting on our Golden Globes looks from 10 years ago," Shipka wrote on Instagram, sharing a photo of herself and Jones at the 2011 Globes. She also shared pictures of her and Jones from this year.

"10yrs later and it still, (sorta), fits," Jones wrote in her post.

Emma Corrin's dress was inspired by clowns

"The Crown" star told Vogue that she sent the Italian label Miu Miu pictures of clowns as gown-design inspiration.

"It probably sounds a little bit crazy, but we were inspired by Pierrot clowns, with their giant ruffs and androgynous silhouettes," she said.

Her makeup, which included a teardrop, also reflected the theme.

Jason Sudeikis' tie-dye hoodie was designed by his sister

Many viewers related to Jason Sudeikis's casual attire as he accepted the Golden Globe for best actor in a musical or comedy TV series for his performance on "Ted Lasso."

But the seemingly simple hoodie was actually promoting his sister's fitness studio, Forward__Space.

Founded by Jason's sister, Kristin, Forward__Space is a New York studio that offers live and streamed dance cardio, conditioning workouts, and sustainable activewear.

As Insider's Celia Fernandez reported, the hand-dyed hoodie retails for $110.

A cutout of Bernie Sanders was at Cynthia Nixon's Golden Globes party

Cynthia Nixon, who was nominated for her work on "Ratched," had a life-size Bernie Sanders image at her Globes party.

"Watching at home #GoldenGlobes2021," Nixon captioned a photo on Instagram, showing the cutout of Sanders at the 2021 presidential inauguration placed behind her family.

The photo of Sanders is a nod to the popular meme when people edited the US senator and his mittens into all sorts of photos, from travel brochures to bodega snapshots.

Tiffany Haddish debuted a new hairstyle

The actor and comedian typically rocks long, dark hair but she showed off a short, honey-blonde style when presenting at the awards show.

Haddish's new hair color might also be a nod to the Golden Globes. Her hairstylist, Ray Christopher, wrote on Instagram that he "colored Tiffany's hair a few days ago just to make sure it was the perfect color for this day."

Bryce Dallas Howard wore shoes from her closet and a secondhand dress

While presenting Chloé Zhao with the award for best director, Howard wore a sequin ombré dress from the consignment retailer The RealReal and Alexander McQueen pumps she wore at a press tour a few years ago.

"As many of you know, I love the sustainability of consignment fashion and often find secondhand pieces for press ... ," she wrote on Instagram, sharing details about and photos of her look.

Catherine O'Hara paid homage to her 'Schitt's Creek' character

O'Hara, who won best actress in a TV comedy for her time as Moira Rose on "Schitt's Creek," paid tribute to the beloved character with her look.

The actress wore a custom Vera Wang suit covered in a rose print, a nod to the character's surname.

"Because this is the last season for 'Schitt's Creek,' I thought it would be nice to give a nod towards Moira's character, which I hope we accomplished," her stylist, Andrew Gelwicks, told People.

At one point in the show, Poehler and Fey had doodles on the palms of their hands

The pair had hearts and stars drawn on their hands during part of the show.

In a tweet, Netflix explained that the doodles are a nod to Poehler's upcoming movie "Moxie."

In the Poehler-directed film, these symbols are "a battle cry - worn by anyone who is sick of the status quo and willing to stand up and fight for what they believe in."

Many of the nominees had pets with them
