Actually, I used to be stunned by a whole lot of what went down on the Golden Globes final night time. There have been some nice and not-so-pleasant shock wins. There was disagreeable Jimmy Fallon. There have been some fascinating viral moments. And whereas among the night time dragged, I do have to provide it to the producers: they shoved a whole lot of drama into three hours. So, let’s get to it! My highlights from the 2017 Golden Globes. You’ll be able to see the listing of Globe winners right here.
Jimmy Fallon sucked. Coming off of so a few years of dominance from Tina Fey & Amy Poehler, it was inevitable that Fallon would get dangerous opinions. And whereas I loved the pre-taped musical opening, the remainder of Fallon’s efficiency fell flat, beginning on the very starting when the Teleprompter went out and you would really feel his panic rise. His Chris Rock impression was… okay, particularly when “Rock” joked that nobody would thank OJ. Evaluating Donald Trump to King Joffrey… meh. Burning Batfleck by way of Matt Damon’s presence…eh. Ernest, Younger & Putin? Nope. However as I stated, the musical quantity was cute.

Shock wins. I believed Moonlight’s Mahershala Ali had it within the bag for Finest Supporting Actor, however they gave it to Aaron Taylor Johnson! I used to be additionally shocked by Billy Bob Thornton’s win. And a lot love for Atlanta, though each time Donald Glover went up there in his velvet swimsuit, an angel received its wings. The most important shock win? Isabelle Huppert for Finest Actress in a Drama with Elle. I actually thought it was going Natalie Portman. Portman thought it could be too (hahaha).
The Evening Supervisor. Talking of surprises, Hugh Laurie and Tom Hiddleston received appearing awards over the Individuals vs. OJ Simpson individuals. In Hugh’s case, I used to be not mad and Hugh might train a grasp class in giving nice speeches. Hiddleston however… his speech was so dangerous that I’m going to put in writing a separate publish about it. Nonetheless, get pleasure from Hugh Laurie denying Hiddles.

Viola Davis is every little thing. She received for Fences. She’s a nationwide treasure.
LaLa Land. It’s in higher form than I believed. It picked up Finest Musical/Comedy, Finest Director, Finest Screenplay and Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling received lead actor awards. Gosling’s speech was very severe, and he thanked “my woman” Eva Mendes and devoted the award to Eva’s late brother. I want Eva had include him to the Globes! Possibly to the Oscars?
Steve Carell & Kristen Wiig. Hopefully, producers have discovered subsequent 12 months’s hosts.

Brad Pitt’s “shock look.” Yeah, Brad govt produced Moonlight and he completely deserves credit score for that, as a result of Moonlight is an incredible movie. But it surely’s additionally a extremely vital black movie. The one talking roles are for black actors. And there was Brad, a white man, representing the movie. It’s notable that the gang was feeling very pro-Brad. Very “thank God you dumped her, dude!”
Casey Affleck. He unsurprisingly received Finest Actor in a Drama. These are my emotions.
You recognize what Meryl Streep stated about bullying & abusing energy earlier? Apply it to Casey Affleck’s sexual harassment of two ladies.

Meryl Streep. I used to be all locked and loaded to drop receipts about how Meryl has had main points with feminism and race, however her Cecil B. DeMille Award speech was superb. Relive it now, full with perhaps the perfect cutaway ever, to Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn (two conservatives) trying bewildered. Like, “what’s privilege? What do you imply?”

And at last, Hidden Fences. At first I believed it was a one-off earlier than the crimson carpet even began. Jenna Bush-Hager made the error to Pharrell Williams’ face:

Black Twitter was already riled up, after which Michael Keaton got here on the market and MADE THE SAME MISTAKE. Hidden Figures and Fences are two totally different films, however I suppose when films have black people in them, they’re all the identical to white people. Which in all probability led to one of many funniest Black Twitter takeovers on Globes night time. Girls and gents, I provide you with: #HiddenFences.
If the Fences are Hidden that may imply they’re invisible. AmIrite #HiddenFences
