When Ricky Gervais hosts, you know things are about to get turned up.
But despite all the bleeping through most of his monologues, the jokes were offensive as one would hope, but no where near as fun as pre-kicked off the globes from hosting- Gervais used to be. Not to mention the Globes underutilized him–the poor host didn’t even get a proper close!
There were a handful of surprises from the Globes including some serious snubs, not to my dismay, toward Spotlight and Carol. There were also major victories for actors such as Brie Larson (future Oscar winner) and Leonardo Dicaprio (future Oscar winner).
Here is my list of favorite moments from the
Golden Globes …
Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill
Jane Fonda + 1 are Appalled
by Above Presenters
The Martian Wins Big in Best Musical/Comedy
Rocky Wins Best Supporting Actor
(And we all cried)
“Most of all, I want to thank my imaginary friend Rocky Balboa for being the best friend I ever had.” THEY PLAYED THE ROCKY THEME MUSIC AS STALLONE WALKED UP TO ACCEPT HIS AWARD. I CANNOT.
Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer are Awkward
Brad Pitt Proves Benjamin Button Theory and/or Botox
Remains cute while doing so.
Kate Winslet (Steve Jobs) Beats
Jennifer Jason Lee (The Hateful Eight)
Remains equally as shocked as we all were.
Lady Gaga Beats Kirsten Dunst in TV Series
…and gives the longest speech while remaining speechless. Music thus qued. Although I’ll always root for Kiki, I’m satisfied with her beating Dunst.
Leonardo Dicaprio Shades Lady Gaga
Dicaprio proves to be the Regina George of the Hollywood circle.
Gotta love him though.
Quentin Tarantino Accepts Best Score…
Gives Tarantino-esque Speech
Christian Slater Wins; Fangirls Over
Brie Larson’s (Room) Deserving Win –
Best Actress Drama
His Royal Majesty Leonardo Dicaprio Wins – Best Actor Drama
Oscar en route.
Overall it was a pretty accurately rated award show. The Revenant won best picture for drama and The Martian won musical or comedy. Looks like it’ll be a fight between those two, but the Oscars always like the pull the rug, so who knows?
Ryan Gosling and Leonardo Dicaprio thank you for your time.
What were your favorite or least favorite moments??

I loved whenever camera showed Ford but that final category was appalling – what was it 2 minutes total? They should leave few minutes margin – it’s unacceptable for an actor of this caliber to show up just to present a clip and read the winner because the ceremony wasn’t well planned – which also deprived us of more Ricky in the end
I’m pretty sure it says somewhere in the Bible to never start playing the music when Leonardo Dicaprio is speaking. EVER. But, honestly, the timing aspect was a damn shame…not to mention they just replayed the entire show after it wrapped.
six words: “Losing To Jeffery Tambour With Dignity”
That was pretty hilarious. I love Aziz!
Wrote a few thoughts myself and we share a lot of the same feelings. Regardless of how lame, predictable, or annoying these things sometimes are I always enjoy them. One thing’s for sure, last night certainly cemented a few things come Oscar night!
Exactly. It looks like The Revenant will be a sure thing in all respects for the Oscars!
I hated Gaga’s win. I watched some of AHS: Hotel and she overacts. She’s got nothing on Kiki. I would’ve picked any of those ladies over Gaga, her win is all because of her name.
I really thought Saoirse would win over Brie, but I’m happy either way. I love both of their performances.
I haven’t seen Kiki in Fargo yet, but I have seen Gaga, and she was very ho-hum. She walked down the aisle like she was receiving an award for curing cancer haha
The Leo gif had my dying all morning! Love that he’s secretly a mean girl lol!
RIGHT??? He looks like the absolute biggest snob in that gif!
I love that look Leo gave Gaga as she walked by. Hysterical. Also so happy that Larson is the frontrunner. She’s so talented and humble. Really hope she wins the Oscar.
I think the Leo stank eye is the #1 favorite among every viewer. It’s priceless.
HAHAHAHHA! The gifs! They’re hilarious! I liked all the Gaga moments, they’re just so weirdly funny. Nice post Courtney 🙂

Ha ha I love this post. The Golden Globe gifs this year were hilarious. I actually didn’t know Christian Slater was still alive. So it was good to see him. Oh yeah Brad Pitt is totally botoxing…ain’t no way. He looks like he did in Legends of the Fall when I was a young teen girl with goo goo eyes over him. He’s at least 15 to 20 years older than me. I loved Gaga’s win.
I agree…Pitt is looking way too good to not have botoxed. Show me the receipts, Pitt! Haha
My goodness, the Golden Globes was psycho – so many zingers, some surprising wins. I was stunned Winslet won over Leigh and Gaga won over Dunst; was truly pulling for the latter for both categories. The Martian winning was probably my favorite moments – don’t know what it is about that movie but it’s like my top fave from last year. And, no one could top Sylvester too.
I’m kind of secretly rooting that The Martian wins at the Oscars 🙂
Great round-up of the Globes. I didn’t see the show so it’s nice to see the highlights. Love Leo’s look when Lady Gaga brushes past him.
