Golden Globes Re-Cap : Everything You Missed
The 73rd annual Golden Globes ceremony took place Sunday (1/10) night at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles by kicking off awards season. Ricky Gervais hosted the three plus hour awards show which ended up being a bit of a bore. Anything is possible in the land of live award ceremonies — impromptu speeches & comedy bits, but this year was long and dull. Where were all the drunk and fun speeches?! Each year the Hollywood Foreign Press Association recognizes the excellence in film and television, both domestic and foreign. If you want to see the full list of winners, check them out on the Golden Globes website.
Here’s what went down — Worst and Best moments of the night :
-Katy Perry bought her entire table In-N-Out Burger (uhm YES!)
-Jonah Hill dressed up as the bear from The Revenant and proceeded to give an acceptance speech in character, while dropping the F-Bomb on live TV.
-The annual teleprompter fail went to presenters Amber Heard and Jaime Alexander who stood in silence until the Blindspot actress asked: “Dude, who’s typing this shit?”
-Taraji P. Henson handed out cookies on her way to accept her award for Best Actress (if you don’t watch Empire, her character’s name is Cookie).
-Lady Gaga covered up all her tattoos for the night.
-Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell called a room of famous people “real buttholes”.
-Jim Carrey made his first appearance since the death of his girlfriend (in September).
-Leonardo DiCaprio received a standing ovation from his peers and colleagues upon being presented with the award for Best Actor in a drama picture.
FASHION of the night:
**Disclaimer** – this post was put up late, which is why I didn’t do a separate fashion feature… However, the Oscars are coming soon, and that will be my main focus, so look forward to that!
Plus, the golden globes sucked, so lets hope for a better awards show next time…
