Holy sweet baby Jesus. This was one for the books. Ricky Gervais brought both his A-game and beer as the host of the 2016 Golden Globes. I'm still questioning whether or not he was nursing the same beer all night long, but that's the least of our worries.
The fashion was never-ending -- good and bad -- and too many head scratchers to keep track of. So without further ado, my first official award show recap of 2016.
It's easy to pick apart A-listers' outfits, but a hell of a lot harder to highlight the key moments of such a large award show. One thing's for sure though... I felt really crappy about every TV show and movie choice I've ever made whenever a winner was announced. Like, what the hell is Mozart In The Jungle? It won pretty much every award in it's category for TV Series Comedy/Musical. Same for Mr. Robot in the TV Series Drama category. No one really cared, including myself, about the television awards. Okay, I might be fibbing. Taraji P. Henson's speech was on point. She handed out cookies on her way up to the stage and didn't give a flying who that the teleprompter was telling her to wrap it up. "Wrap it up?! I've waited 20 years for this. You gon' wait."
And then there was the time Lady Gaga won and scared the living crap out of Leo (you already know his last name).
Film time! I didn't really know who was going to win, I just knew that I wanted Leo to win for Best Actor and he did. And he's going to win every award all award season long -- including a freaking Oscar! I knew he was going to get it when Alejandro G. Innaritu won for Best Director for The Revenant. Best Picture was the last award of the night and also went to The Revenant. What a time to be alive guys.
Kate Winslet got Best Supporting Actress (because of course she did); Sylvester Stallone got Best Supporting Actor ("I'd like to thank my best imaginary friend Rocky Balboa for being the best imaginary friend I ever had" after he walked up to the stage to the Rocky theme); Jennifer Lawrence got Best Actress Comedy/Musical (called it); Matt Damon got Best Actor Comedy/Musical (would he have beaten Leo if he were competing in the drama category?); Brie Larson won Best Actress Drama (Best Dressed = Best Actress material); and Leo won Best Actor Drama. Boom. How do you like them apples? It's past midnight and I have no idea where that came from.
The realest moment of the night goes to Denzel Washington and his wife while onstage to accept the Cecil B. DeMille award and neither one of them had good enough vision to read his speech. Good times.
Only a couple of more points, I promise. The theme of the night was 'screw the wrap-up music'. Every winner let us know that the prompter was telling them to wrap it up and that they weren't planning on wrapping it up anytime soon. I say we should start a petition and get rid of the wrap up music because some of these people have waited all their lives for this moment (*cough* Leo *cough*) and it's incredibly hard to think of the right words under so much pressure. That is the first and last time you will ever hear/read/whatever me be sympathetic.
Last but not least, the funny things that came out of celebrities' mouthes, especially Ricky Gervais':
"I've changed... Not as much as Bruce Jenner of course." - Ricky Gervais
"She didn't do a lot for women drivers but you can't have everything." - Ricky Gervais on Caitlyn Jenner
"Only person Ben Affleck hasn't been unfaithful to." - Ricky Gervais on Matt Damon
"Seeing Ricky once every three years reminds me to get a colonoscopy." - Mel Gibson on Ricky Gervais
"When Brad and Angelina see our next little presenters they'll want to adopt them." - Ricky Gervais on Kevin Hart and Ken Jeong
"I'm seeing God. I told him." Alejandro G. Innaritu on accepting award from Morgan Freeman
"I want us to be buried next to each other." Jennifer Lawrence to her director David O. Russell
Other standout moments:
- Channing Tatum's hair
- Jonah Hill pretending to be the bear from The Revenant
- Jamie Foxx pretending to pull a Steve Harvey
- Jamie Alexander and Amber Heard looking oh so thrilled with the teleprompter not cooperating
