Brought to you by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and champagne, the Golden Globe Awards are very easily the most cost-free-wheeling show of trophy season. Each January, celebrities dress up, get drunk, and at times even trade the platitudes for candor. This year’s show was no diverse, with legendary acceptance speeches jockeying for attention alongside media screwups and flashes of actual, organic spontaneity. But if you happened to miss it—or just want to relive the highlights—the massively crowdsourced recap identified as Twitter is happy to support.
The Best Tweets of the 2017 Golden Globe Awards
Ahead of the show even began, the red carpet offered more than a couple of awkward moments—one in certain that became a recurring theme. When interviewing Pharrell Williams, who developed and contributed music for the film Hidden Figures, Jenna Bush referred to the film as “Hidden Fences.” Fences is another film that snagged Globe nominations—but while it’s the adaptation of a hugely famous play that won a Pulitzer when it came out 30 years ago, it also has a largely black cast, which made Bush’s stumble a tiny more egregious.
Blunders aside, the red carpet was full of the usual ogling and awkwardness.
Meanwhile, these hoping to stream the show got a massive surprise from its home network. Good operate, Peacock!
Ultimately, the ceremony began…
…with a musical number that felt like one big, sloppy fan-service kiss to Television.
Jimmy Fallon kicked off his monologue with a TelePrompter malfunction and a quantity of shots at the incoming POTUS. Not absolutely everyone was feeling the newfound friskiness from the guy who so (in)famously tousled Donald Trump’s hair on his show final year.
The awards started going out—with a few surprises in the mix. To kick things off, Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass, Godzilla) won for his supporting turn in Nocturnal Animals. Not the outcome numerous individuals had been expecting.
Then Tracee Ellis Ross, Atlanta, and Sarah Paulson won and—in the eyes of Twitter, at least—things got back on track.
Things started dragging a bit after that, though Hugh Laurie came with the Lauriest speech that ever Lauried.
Not each and every bit went more than properly, of course.
OK, so don’t forget that issue we said about “Hidden Fences”? Nicely, this occurred.
Presenters kept presenting, and La La Land kept winning.
Meanwhile, “Hidden Fences” only gained traction.
Then it was back to the awards.
In what will likely be the most talked about moment of the evening, Meryl Streep took to the stage to accept the Cecil B. DeMille award—and went following President-elect Donald Trump. Challenging.
Then Donald Glover was back, this time winning for his acting in Atlanta.
But La La Land wasn’t fairly finished winning each and every. Single. Award.
Oh, and Brad Pitt showed up!
And Casey Affleck won for Manchester By the Sea.
Isabelle Huppert took home a surprising win for Elle, beating out the likes of Natalie Portman, Amy Adams, and Jessica Chastain.
In the end, following getting shut out all night, Moonlight took residence an award for Very best Motion Image, Drama.
All round, there weren’t too numerous surprises. La La Land is specifically the kind of film the HFPA loves, and just about everything else people were hoping to see win managed to nab a Globe or two. Except, that is, for the network that brought us Game of Thrones, The Evening Of, Westworld, and Insecure.
See you next year, all!
