Meryl Streep gave a phenomenal, super-charged speech

Meryl for President, no? The actress, starring in Florence Foster Jenkins this year, has received an award for all the fantastic work and made her speech worth a powerful Iron Lady she is.

“Think about it: Hollywood, foreigners and the press. But who are we, and what is Hollywood anyway? It’s just a bunch of people from other places,”  she stated, and introduced a wonderful cultural mix of actors present at the ceremony.  “Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners, and if you kick them all out, you’ll have nothing to watch except for football and mixed martial arts, which are not arts,” she said. Not that we have anything against taekwondo, but preach, sister.

“Disrespect invites disrespect, violence incites violence. And when the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose,” she stated boldly, sparking enthusiasm in every corner of the world watching her at the very moment.

She’s also mentioned Carrie Fisher – who we all loved as Princess Leia, and who we’ve said goodbye to just a few days ago – quoting the advice she gave in one of the interviews.

“Take your broken heart. Make it into art.” Mic drop.

Watch the whole speech below.

 Emma Stone: for all the creatives who’ve been rejected in their life

La La Land, a musical that received the phenomenal critical reception and bagged seven awards in all the seven categories it’s been nominated in, has broken the Golden Globes record. But it’s not only memorable thing about this film: its leading lady, Emma Stone, has also given a wonderful acceptance speech for all of us creative millennials who try to make it in arts.

“Hope and creativity are the most important things in the world, and this is what this movie is about,” she said. “To any creative person who has had a door slammed in their face, metaphorically or literally… or anybody, anywhere who feels like giving up sometimes but finds it in themselves to get up and keep moving forward, I share this with you.”

Emma, we’re glad you made that PowerPoint presentation to convince your parents you need to pursue acting. #Inspiration.

Tracee Ellis Ross thanks the women of colour

The actress who received a best actress Golden Globe for her role in Black-ish has dedicated her awards to all the women of colour, mentioning that it’s an honour to showcase the stories that are outside of the standard industry mill of ideas.

“This is for all the women, women of colour and colourful people, whose stories, ideas thoughts, are not always considered worthy and valid and important, but I want you to know that I see you,” she said. “We see you.”

On a way to better, more diverse Hollywood… and the world!

Evan Rachel Wood gives a nod to David Bowie and empowers the girls

The actress and singer who was nominated for the Westworld role has shaken up the red carpet entrance moment when she appeared in a wonderful black-and-white tuxedo. And even if we’ve got the 21st century, it was another shout-out to the modern girls who don’t agree with the obligations that women might be posed. On David Bowie’s birthday, she also sported an outfit that was partially inspired by him, and by a silent era star Marlene Dietrich.

“I’ve been to the Golden Globes six times, I’ve worn a dress every single time and I love dresses,” she told the reporter. “I’m not trying to protest dresses, but I wanted to make sure young girls and women know that it’s not a requirement.”

“You don’t have to wear one if you don’t want to. Just be yourself because you’re worth more than that,”  she added. We love dresses too, but we just want to high five the actress right now.

Andrew Garfield is a charmer… wait, is that even the news?

Onto the gossip now. This man will never fail to make our hearts melt. Silence and Hacksaw Ridge star was the usual charmer – and although he didn’t have the chance to make an acceptance speech, he was super-supportive for his mates. Firstly, a standing ovation to his ex – when Emma Stone, who he broke up in 2015, was called onstage to receive her Best Actress award, he stood up to applaud.

And did we mention that this round of affection stretched to another co-star? Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds shared a kiss with Andrew as Ryan Gosling’s name was read out, which made for another hilarious scene. Who needs the Avengers when Spiderman and Deadpool make out?!


The British brought a handful of Globes home

This was a good award show for the British TV programmes and actors: Netflix’s The Crown, portraying the life of young Queen Elizabeth, has been awarded as the best series, and Claire Foy received a Golden Globe for her leading performance in the show. Aaron Taylor-Johnson surprised everyone with an award for his supporting role in Nocturnal Animals. And the widely acclaimed BBC show, The Night Manager, was also appreciated: the titles of leading and supporting actors in a limited television series went to Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie respectively.

Onstage, Hugh Laurie mentioned that these will probably be the last Golden Globes with another poke at Donald Trump that evening.

“I don’t mean to be gloomy,”  he summed up. “I accept this award on behalf of psychopathic billionaires everywhere.”

Yass, the British sarcasm! This is why I loved this man since I had a kid crush on him in House.

Teleprompter fail, aka real improv from Jimmy Fallon

There’s been a couple of hilarious mistakes and problems, however. NBC’s Michael Keaton merged two films that appeared on the nomination list: Hidden Numbers and Fences, into Hidden Fences. The mention on the Twitter live stream caused the people to rip him to pieces – so if anybody mentions it to you, it’s a film that doesn’t quite exist yet. But the entire gala kicked off with a teleprompter fail: Jimmy Fallon, the comedian that hosted the award show, had to improvise when the machines decided not to be supportive – offering to do impressions and saying that he’d qualify to become a live GIF. His Chris Rock impression, however, was called out by a handful of Twitter commenters, too.
