The Golden Globes celebrate the art of both film and television. They recognize the best actors and actresses of the year, and of course create a fashion spectacle. If you didn’t get a chance to catch the three hour long 74th awards show – have no fear, here are the most memorable moments that are sure to be talked about around the water cooler.
Even if you didn’t catch the award show last night, you’ve probably already been inundated with Meryl Streep praise all over social media. Last night she won the Cecil B DeMille award for “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment” – which is incredibly praiseworthy all by itself!
She gave an outstanding and highly inspiring speech which touched many. Quotes from her speech included:
Take your broken heart, make it into art.
–quoting late friend Carrie Fisher
“Disrespect invites disrespect, violence incites violence. And when the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose.”
This eight-year old star stole our hearts last night and should have been given a Globe for being the cutest person there. Sunny was onstage with co-star Dev Patel to introduce their incredible film, Lion. The camera slowly zoomed in to show Sunny’s face with a wide grin.
Just look how cute he is:

La La Land
The film La La Land, staring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, swept the Globes – winning a record total of 7 awards. Let’s just say we’re not too surprised. We’re sure a lot of movie-goers will be hitting the theatres to check out this film to see what all the hype is about. They won’t be disappointed!
The ex-SNL guru made some pretty clever zingers last night as the 74th host. He kept his jokes funny, yet relevant and helped to move the show along smoothly. Even while disaster stuck within seconds of the show – the telepromter wasn’t working – he made light of the situation, and later made a joke about it being some kind of conspiracy by Dick Clark – referencing the Mariah Carey New Year’s Eve disaster.
Some of his best jokes:
Fallon on Leonardo DiCaprio: “I call our next presenter, “Leo.” He calls me, ‘Will you hold my drink please?’”
Fallon on “Manchester by the Sea”: [Laughing] “I’m sorry, I was just watching the blooper reel from ‘Manchester by the Sea’!”
The end of the show was nearing and Moonlight had not yet been recognized as much as was predicted. However, in the end, the film walked away with Best Motion Picture, Drama – the biggest award of the evening. By all accounts, this emotionally moving and visually stunning film was well deserving of the honour. This moment ended the show on a high note and all were satisfied!
