The 8 Most Memorable Moments from this Year’s Golden Globes
We come for the dresses, but we stay for the winners, laughs and awkward moments.
1. Amy Poehler & Tina Fey's coast-to-coast monologue
Amy Poehler and Tina Fey opened the awards show with a spot-on monologue, which included everything from Oprah Winfrey jokes to Zoom references. Unlike previous years, the pair co-hosted the show from opposite sides of the country, and they didn’t hold back on poking fun at the unique broadcast.
2. Daniel Kaluuya's Technical difficulties
Shortly after Daniel Kaluuya was named the winner for Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture, he tried to give his acceptance speech, but there was no sound. Of course, producers fixed the problem within a matter of seconds, but it definitely made our heart skip a beat.
3. John Boyega's comfortable wardrobe
During his acceptance speech for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Supporting Role, John Boyega revealed that he only dressed professionally from the waist up. Instead of wearing slacks, he donned “track bottoms” since the video frame didn’t show his full body.
4. Cynthia Erivo's lime green dress
Cynthia Erivo took the stage in a bright green dress by Valentino. Need we say more?
5. Maya Rudolph and Kenan Thompson's skit
Maya Rudolph and Kenan Thompson crashed the awards show and performed a comedic skit, where they pretended to accept a Golden Globe as first-time winners. “Bear with me, I had a vodka epidural before I came here,” Rudolph said.
6. Emma Corrin's first 'W'
Emma Corrin won her first Golden Globe award during tonight’s ceremony. The Crown star was nominated for Best Actress in a Television Series (Drama) against Jodie Comer for Killing Eve, Laura Linney for Ozark, Sarah Paulson for Ratched and Olivia Colman for The Crown.
7. Tracy Morgan's 'Soul' mix-up
While presenting the award for Best Original Score, Tracy Morgan accidentally said “Sal” instead of “Soul” before giving an extremely confused expression. It didn’t take long for celebs to virtually comment on the mix-up, questioning whether it was intentional or not.
