The Best (and Worst) Moments from the 2016 Golden Globe Awards
From the gags to the digs and all the eye candy in between
Maybe you missed the three-hour broadcast. Maybe you powered through--but just want to see Ryan Gosling stand next to Brad Pitt again. Here’s a refresher of the highs and lows from the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards.
JONAH HILL PRESENTED AS A BEAR
It was a tribute to the overlooked star of The Revenant. It was also the only way Hill had a chance of standing out beside co-presenter Channing Tatum (um, did you Lip Sync Battle?).
RACHEL BLOOM PROVED WE SHOULD ALL BE WATCHING THE CW
The outrageous star of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend won for Best Actress in a Musical/Comedy--the second year in a row the network has cleaned up in that category. (Last year it went to Gina Rodriguez of Jane the Virgin.)
RICKY GERVAIS MADE MATT DAMON SUPER UNCOMFORTABLE
How? He introduced him as “the only person who Ben Affleck hasn’t been unfaithful to.” Eeeeeeeeeeeek.
JASON STATHAM PUT THE DIRECTOR OF SPY IN A HEADLOCK
He was pretending to be in character…but frankly we were all a little scared.
JAMIE FOXX PULLED A STEVE HARVEY...ON PURPOSE
He “misread” the cue card for Best Original Score for a Motion Picture and announced the winner as Straight Outta Compton. (It really went to the Quentin Tarantino flick.)
AMY AND JENNIFER SHOWED THEY COULD BE THE NEW AMY AND TINA
They sat the same table together. They presented together. They even brainstormed potential celeb-couple nicknames together (“Amy-All the Hemsworthes,” for example).
SAME GOES FOR RYAN GOSLING AND BRAD PITT
We don’t even remember what they actually said. But do we even care?
LEONARDO DICAPRIO LEARNED: NO ONE LAUGHS AT LADY GAGA
Especially when she wins the award for “Best Actress in a Limited Series” for American Horror Story: Hotel. Pssst…buddy…there are cameras everywhere.
SLYVESTER STALLONE WON BIG FOR HIS ROLE AS ROCKY BALBOA
And called the character his best friend--deserving of the first standing ovation of the night.
AZIZ ANSARI LOST...BUT CAME PREPARED WITH THE BEST PROP
Well played, Aziz. Well played.
RICKY GERVAIS SLAMMED MEL GIBSON...TO HIS FACE
Let’s just say that the censorship team at this year’s Golden Globe Awards had their work cut out for them. If you really want to know what was behind that long bleep, Google it.
COOKIE GAVE OUT COOKIES TO EVERYONE
How else would you expect the Empire star to celebrate her Best Actress win?
LEO AND KATE BOTH WON--AND EVERYONE FREAKED
Winslet took Best Actress for Steve Jobs. DiCaprio took Best Actor for The Revenant. Cue collective 1997 heart explosion.
