After what seemed like the longest 3 hours of my life, the Golden Globes are finally over. The event which was hosted by the hilarious (he wasn’t tonight) Ricky Gervais and the show was a true mixed bag of moments but overall it was pretty underwhelming. The awards that were handed out had some surprise wins like Kelsey Grammer winning the Best Actor Drama category or the fine fine Idris Elba winning the Best Actor TV movie/Miniseries category. The Descendants and The Artist were the big winners of the night with
Here are some of the best moments from last.
Ricky Gervais Calls Out Johnny Depp.
This was pretty hilarious. Johnny Depp was presenting the first award and in introducing him Gervais continued his bit from last year about how terrible the movie The Tourist was by asking him if “He’d seen The Tourist himself?” Depp admitted that he hadn’t which Ricky used as confirmation that the movie was awful.
Jimmy Fallon Doing His Own Moves Like Jagger
Jimmy Fallon making fun of Adam Levin and his band Maroon 5’s hit Moves Like Jagger. He then proceeded to try to show Adam his own Jagger moves. It was pretty hilarious.
Michelle Williams Gives A Really Sweet Speech After Her Win For Best Actress in A Comedy/Musical
“I consider myself a mother first and an actress second. So the person I most want to thank is my daughter, my little girl, whose bravery and exuberance is the example that I take with me in my work and in my life,” said Michelle Williams as she accepted her award for Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical for My Week With Marilyn. She dedicated the award to her daughter and thanked many people including her BFF, Busy Phillips (Cougar Town). I love the Dawson’s Creek love and that they have been friends for so long. I also love that I got to see Phillips since ABC decided to not have my show Cougar Town on the air right now. Here is the speech in its entirety.
Modern Family Acceptance Speech By Sofia Vergara
Modern Family finally won the award for best comedy after 2 years of losing to Glee. The entire cast made their way on stage and Vergara and creator Steve Levitan decides that since they are an international show they should do their speech in two languages.
Elton John’s Sourpuss Face When Madonna Won For Best Original Song
There is definitely no love lost between Elton John and Madonna. They have been feuding ever since Madonna won an award for best live act and Elton responded with “Madonna, best f–king live act? F–k off!” Elton was already in a fighting mood during the red carpet show with Carson Daly when he said that Madonna had no chance of winning the award that night. Madonna responded with “may the best man win”
Elton’s husband, David Furnish, was rather pissed after the loss and went off on his Facebook page saying, “Madonna. Best song???? F–k off!!! Thank you for all your comments and support. Madonna winning Best Original Song truly shows how these awards have nothing to do with merit. Her acceptance speech was embarrassing in its narcissism. And her criticism of Gaga shows how desperate she really is.”
Furnish’s reference to Lady Gaga, godmother to their child, is from a jab Madonna made at her in an interview with ABC News this past week where she implied that Gaga ripped off her work.
I see why they hate Madonna because she is such a rhymes with itch. But they come off looking like such sore losers in this whole thing.
That’s about it. There was a great moment with Meryl Streep when she went up to accept her award for Best Actress in a Drama for The Iron Lady but all moments with Meryl are wonderful so I didn’t put that up here.
