Moments, mishaps, monologues and everything in between!
This year’s Golden Globes roundup was of no disappointment as per usual. From the likes of Jennifer Aniston to Ricky Gervais, 2020 sure seems to be a year filled with instances that leave you wanting more. We’ve compiled 7 of some top-notch cringeworthy yet outrageously daring moments from the Golden Globes that have left us all SHOOK.
1. That BLEEPing monologue
Hats off to Joaquin Phoenix for his much-deserved win for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama for Joker. However, many eyebrows were raised during his unbarred, uncensored speech that left us… not quite so sure how to feel.
He daringly addressed climate change and even went on to state to his fellow actors, “We don’t have to take private jets to palm springs… I’ll try to do better, and I hope you will too”.
Joaquin, shout out to you for channelling those undeterred, unfazed inner Joker vibes and upping that Golden Globes speech game.
2. The ENTIRE internet is officially thirsting over Jason Momoa’s ‘tank top’ look
Jason Momoa, the one person that can transform any atypical black-tie or red-carpet event into THE JASON MOMOA SHOW both on and off-screen.
Yes, he did it again, this time with his choice in opting for ONLY a black tank top that just left people swooning for more. These internet reactions on twitter and Instagram show just how grateful people were for this hunky piece of eye-candy. #freethebicep
But to be frank, even his initial outfit adorning a velvety deep green Tom Ford blazer was pretty incredible too. So, in retrospect we don’t really have anything to complain about do we?
3. You might have missed this…but there was a reference to Barack Obama and mind you it was quite a steamy one.
Phoebe-Waller Bridge accepted the globe for best tv series – Musical or Comedy for Fleabag and gave a shout out to an unusual fan of the series: Barack Obama. She thanked him for putting her on his list of 2019 pop culture favourites. To which Waller-Bridge went on to state, “As some of you may know, he’s always been on mine”.
For those out there who are unfamiliar with the show, this was in reference to a hilarious scene where Fleabag is masturbating to Obama giving a speech. You do you girl!
4. There was even a moment where Ansel Elgort belted out a tune on stage when presenting the award for Best Original Song and we are living for it!
It undeniably caught the audience off guard but was nonetheless a pleasant surprise.
(we get it, Ansel, you’ve got the lead in West Side Story).
5. Ricky Gervais bringing up the not-so very hot topic of Leonardo DiCaprio’s dating history.
As we all know, DiCaprio is very much known for his preference in well… ummm, much younger women.
Gervais didn’t hesitate to point it out as he stated, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is nearly three hours long. Leonardo DiCaprio attended the premiere, and by the end, his date was too old for him.”
No need to worry, Leo took the joke seemingly well and was pretty much laughing more than anyone else there. PHEW!
6. Tom Hank’s reaction to Ricky Gervais speech was in fact THE golden moment (pun intended)
We couldn’t get enough look of utter dismay on his face thanks to all the bittersweet content that Gervais slapped out to the audience. Tom Hanks’ I’m-so-freaked-out-RN face speaks tantamount to our own expressions. (Pile on the memes please)
7. …and of course, Ricky Gervais’ speech itself.
He never fails to shock the audience. This time around was no disappointment as he explored controversial topics such as Jeffrey Epstein, Felicity Huffman’s college admissions scandal and the hypocrisy of Hollywood.
Considering 2020 being his last year of hosting, we see how he did not hold back…ONE…BIT.
WELP, at least we soaked up our daily dose of entertainment.
As a personal love letter to next year’s Golden Globes, we’re expecting some more serious giggles and cringeworthy moments for us to feed on because this year’s sure hit the mark!
