2016 Golden Globes: Here’s the Biggest Winners and the Best Moments
Here’s a wrap-up of the night’s biggest winners and some moments you might have missed!
The 2016 Golden Globes are done and over! Now it’s time for everyone to shake off their buzz and wander to the after-party. While they’re wandering, let’s recap all the stars and moments that made the 73rd Golden Globes unforgettable!
Ricky Gervais, true to form, was as offensive as ever tonight. He shaded just about everyone but his joke directed at Caitlyn Jenner was especially prickly. The British comedian noted that Caitlyn has made huge strides as a spokesperson and role model for the trans community. He added, however, that he doesn’t think Caitlyn has improved the reputation of female drivers. This line is obviously about Jenner’s unfortunate car accident on PCH in February. Yikes!
Oftentimes, the presenters at the awards shows steal the show and tonight was no exception! Eva Longoria and America Ferrera were paired together to present the award for Best Actor in a TV Drama, but before doing that, they decided to remind the audience who they were in the most hilarious way possible. The two delightfully pointed out how often Latin actresses are confused with each other. Longoria mentioned that she isn’t Eva Mendes and Ferrera stated that she isn’t Gina Rodriguez. But the best moment was when they reminded everyone that neither was Rosario Dawson!
Lady Gaga had herself a memorably night, taking home the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Limited Series, Series, or Motion Picture for her starring role in American Horror Story: Hotel. She also offered a truly touching acceptance speech upon receiving her award.
“I feel like Cher in that John Patrick Shanley film Moonstruck right now,” she said onstage. “It’s like one of the greatest moments of my life.”
We also have to mention Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill’s awkward bit poking fun at the infamous bear scene from The Revenant. The entire moment was about as uncomfortable as anything you’ve ever seen on TV. Jonah Hill, in the cheapest bear costume imaginable, spoke about his not-so-real role in the brutal film.
And, if your weekend wasn’t going well, we hope you caught Taraji P. Henson’s acceptance speech for her role in Empire. When her name was called, the gorgeous actress strutted to the stage handing out cookies to everyone, clearly poking fun at her fictional character’s name, Cookie.
“Who knew an ex-con would take me so far?” Henson said referring to her character, to the cheering crowd.
Now, we’re all obviously excited that Leonardo DiCaprio took home a Golden Globe for his immersive performance in The Revenant and we’re certainly hoping that another golden accolade will make its away to Leo very soon, but another actor’s speech must be mentioned.
Perhaps it’s because Sylvester Stallone has been at it so long, perhaps it’s because his supporting role in Creed was one for the books, but his speech tonight was everything we’d hoped it would be.
In an odd but touching moment, the actor thanked his fictional character, the one that launched his career, Rocky Balboa, while receiving a standing ovation.
