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.
