Stars Remember Haiti at the Golden Globes

The 67th Annual Golden Globes weren't all glitz and glamour Sunday night -- celebrities took the opportunity to remind the public that relief is still desperately needed in Haiti following the devastating earthquake.

Meryl Streep, who nabbed a Globe for her role in "Julie & Julia," told her peers to remember how fortunate they are -- and to share.

"I come to Golden Globes weekend and I am conflicted how to have my happy movie self in the face of everything I'm aware of in the real world, and that's when I have my mother's voice coming to me," Streep says during her acceptance speech. "Partners in Health, shoot some money to Partners In Health, and be damn grateful you have the dollars to help."

She adds, "And I am grateful. I'm really grateful."

Many of Hollywood's finest were spotted wearing ribbons in support of the earthquake victims.

"A lot of people are wearing ribbons tonight in support of the people of Haiti, and you can go to NBC.com to make your personal contribution," Nicole Kidman tells the audience at the show.

Olivia Wilde, who was involved with Haitian charity before the quake, will join Streep, Josh Brolin, Gerard Butler, and Amy Poehler in donating their outfits worn at the ceremony to Artists for Peace and Justice, a relief organization that will auction off the clothing and give 100% of the proceeds to the Haitian people.

"It's my way of turning all this fashion madness into something positive," Wilde says.

George Clooney, who is hosting a "Hope for Haiti" telethon on January 22, used the awards show to line up talent for the benefit. "This is the perfect place for me to go and recruit some people," the actor tells AP.

So far, Clooney's benefit will include performances by Bono, Sting, Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera and Alicia Keys.

"Hope for Haiti" airs worldwide January 22 on ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, CNN, BET, the CW, HBO, MTV, VH1 and CMT. The proceeds will go to Wyclef Jean's Yele Haiti Foundation, UNICEF, Oxfam America, Partners In Health and the Red Cross.
