Glamorous gowns, flawless faces and fabulous jewels; the 2016 Golden Globes brought memorable red carpet looks and Hollywood moments we’ll be talking about well into the week.
Get into our favorite moments below:
Ricky Gervais’ Unabashed Opening Monologue
Beginning his opening monologue addressing the, “disgusting, pill-popping, sexual deviant scum,” Ricky Gervais’ ferociously took aim at Hollywood’s finest. “Not even Sean Penn will find me,” he joked then called him a “snitch.” Ouch. You were thinking it.
No one was off-limits as Gervais bounced from one celeb to another. From Bill Cosby to Caitlyn Jenner to a cheap shot at gender inequality and last year’s hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Bro, he even dissed Schindler’s List.
You either love Gervais’ for his crass commentary and borderline distasteful jokes or hate him with the passion of a thousand kitten heels.
Jamie Foxx Presents Straight Outta Compton With Globe
It’s always a good time when Jamie Foxx is around and he didn’t disappoint at the Golden Globes. In case you missed it, ‘Straight Outta Compton’ didn’t receive a nomination at this year’s ceremony but Jamie made sure it was mentioned when he pulled a Steve Harvey and announced them as winner in the “Best Score” category. Quentin Tarantino didn’t seemed to thrilled about it and made a reference about “ghetto” music unlike the classical music of Mozart and Hateful Eight composer Ennio Morricone. Oh no he didn’t!
Jennifer Lawrence & Amy Schumer Should Totally Host The Globes Next Year
The girl next door met the class clown at the Globes and it was pretty awesome. Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer united to introduce clips from their respective films Joy and Trainwreck with their infectious chemistry. We think we found the perfect replacements for Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
Brad Pitt & Ryan Gosling
No words. Just take minute to marvel in their glory.
Sylvester Stallone Won His First Golden Globe
While we’re still a little bummed Sylvester Stallone didn’t thank Creed director Ryan Coogler or his Creed co-star Michael BAE Jordan, we’re happy Sylvester Stallone finally received a Golden Globe. Now can Michael BAE get a nom for his role in the critically-acclaimed film?
Lady Gaga Thanks Angela Bassett
Lady Gaga was beyond emotional accepting the Golden Globe for her role on American Horror Story. The Countess humbly thanked her co-stars for creating a successful series that allowed her talent to flourish and dreams of acting come true. “Thank you for sharing your talent with me,” she said. We were especially touched when she thanked Angela Bassett, who looked on from the audience in a ravishing red gown.
On another note, was Leo shading Gaga when she walked to the stage?
Denzel’s Emotional Acceptance Speech
And the cutest, most adorable couple of all time is…Denzel Washington and Pauletta. Watch his acceptance speech, here.
Taraji P. Henson Wins Big
Don’t rush Taraji P. Henson, she’s been waiting for this moment all her life.
Taraji thought her roles in films like Karate Kid would earn a Golden Globe nomination, but it was her outspoken character Cookie who brought home the gold. Taraji walked to the stage, rambunctiously passing out Cookie’s to her fellow actors.
Thanking her ‘Empire’ co-stars, Taraji made a point about her long career and how it took playing a felon to secure a golden statue. Despite the shot at mainstream Hollywood, Taraji was beyond elated to be among the big winners of the night.
Congrats to all the winners!
