When you think of the 73rd Golden Globe Awards, what comes to mind?

First, Ricky Gervais and his hilarious, offensive, commentary.

Number two, the red carpet fashion!

Number three, WHO WON?!

Lucky for you we have a recap of it all starting from the best and worst dressed red carpet looks. While there were a number of fabulously dressed stars this evening, here are the ones who stood out most to us.

 

Best Dressed:

 

Taraji P. Henson

It is NO secret that we have mad love for our girl, Taraji! And tonight is no different. Our lovely Empire star stunned on the red carpet in a beautiful white gown, giving us LIFE!

Olivia Wilde

Is it even a Red Carpet Best Dressed list without Olivia Wilde? Probably not. She and Jason Sudekis… #RelationshipGoals for sure.

Not So Good:

 

Eva Longoria 

While Eva is ALWAYS looking flawless, we have to admit she looks a bit… modest with this look. It’s not that the dress is BAD, but it doesn’t ring typical Eva to us. Are we missing something here?

Jennifer Lopez

While it may seem to be a complete sin to put JLO on a worst dressed list, WE CAN’T HELP IT. JLO always looks SO flawless that it’s hard to expect an ounce less from her. However, this isn’t such a TERRIBLE look, but we KNOW she is capable of more. It IS the Golden Globes. Time to show up!

Katy Perry 

Once again, are we wrong for expecting more?! We love you Katy, but this look is a snooze fest…

Shortly after the Red Carpet wrapped, it was off to host Ricky Gervais to kick off the ceremony with his expected crude and hilarious humor. And let us say, he did NOT disappoint.

Gervais began his opening roast with a diss on Sean Penn, who was very recently brought into questioning over his interview with the famous Drug Lord, El Chapo. Gervais hilariously said,

 

“You disgusting, pill-popping, sexual deviant scum. I’m going to do this monologue and then go into hiding. Not even Sean Penn will find me.. snitch.”

 

Obviously he didn’t stop there. Ricky then ventured to the subject of Caitlyn Jenner, who has been heavily publicized in the media in the last year thanks to her transition. However, that doesn’t mean the reality star is off limits from Gervais’ opening commentary…

 

“…what a year she’s had! She became a role model for trans-people everywhere, showing great bravery in breaking down barriers and destroying stereotypes. She didn’t do a lot for women drivers. But you can’t have everything, can ya?”

 

While Ricky’s commentary and the red carpet highlights were amongst the night’s most enjoyable moments, no doubt the true excitement was in the announcement of the winners from each category. Take a look below to check out some of the evening’s biggest victories.

 

One of the most exciting moments was when Lady Gaga won her first Golden Globe award EVER. She was nominated for “Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television” for her role in American Horror Story: Hotel.

YASSSSSS Gaga! We are SO happy for you! Congrats!

Other successful ladies this evening were Jennifer Lawrence for her role in Joy, for which she won “Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy. ”
