THE 5 BEST MOMENTS FROM THE GOLDEN GLOBESJanuary 9, 2017
If you didn’t sit through all 12 hours of last night’s Golden Globes, here are five of the best moments you need to see.
1. The Opening Number
Jimmy Fallon began the evening with an homage to the opening number from the night’s big winner LA LA Land. Featuring a ton of celebrity cameos including Nicole Kidman, the kids from Stranger Things, Ryan Reynolds, Tina Fey and Justin Timberlake, the musical performance kicked off the show on a high note.
2. It’s a LA LA Land World
LA LA Land swept by taking home all seven of its nominations to break the record for most Globe wins by a film. Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone won for lead actor and actress, with additional wins for comedy/musical picture, director, screenplay, score and song. They’ve all got something to sing and dance about!
3. Ryan Gosling Thanks His ‘Lady’
The 36-year-old used his acceptance speech for Best Actor in a Musical to gush over his wife ‘lady’ Eva Mendes.
“…I just would like to try and thank one person properly and say that while I was singing and dancing and playing piano and having one of the best experiences I’ve ever had on a film, my lady was raising our daughter, pregnant with our second and trying to help her brother fight his battle with cancer.”
He is officially perfect!
4. Brad Pitt Alert!
Surprise! Looking lean and youthful, Brad Pitt stunned the audience as he took the stage to present a clip from the movie Moonlight. The 53-year-old got a rousing applause, which is probably a welcome change considering he’s been involved in a contentious divorce with Angelina Jolie. Pitt wound up a winner too, as Moonlight – which his company Plan B produced – took home Best Motion Picture Drama.
5. Meryl’s Speech

Hollywood queen Meryl Streep received the Cecil B. DeMille Award for Lifetime Achievement and used her acceptance speech to get political. Without naming names, the three-time Oscar winner stated “disrespect invited disrespect” and called out President-elect Donald Trump for mocking a disabled reporter during his campaign. Streep ended it by commemorating her recently departed good friend, Carrie Fisher.
“As my, as my friend, the dear departed Princess Leia, said to me once: ‘Take your broken heart, make it into art.’”
