Winner, Losers and Biggest Moments of the Golden Globes 2019
The 76th Golden Globe awards were hosted live by Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh from the Beverly Hilton yesterday on NBC. Bohemian Rhapsody emerged the big (surprise) winner on the movie side, nabbing the biggies, but Green Book performed well too, bringing home three awards.
Bohemian Rhapsody won Best Drama. Green Book won Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy. Rami Malek took home Best Actor, Musical or Comedy, while Rachel Brosnahan won the award for Best Actress, Musical or Comedy. Alfonso Cuarón won Best Director.
On the TV side, The Americans won Best Drama and The Kominsky Method won Best Musical or Comedy.
Obviously most people are shocked by all the Star is Born snubs. They were expected to take home several awards but only walked away with one, for Best Song.
Oh and Samberg proved that they are quite possibly the sweetest and most genuinely likable pair in Hollywood by keeping things clean yet funny, while still managing to crack faux racially charged jokes and sexually harassing audience members.
Without discussing politics with as much fiery passion as other awards show hosts have in recent years, the pair highlighted the drumbeat of change happening in Hollywood, specifically name-checking Roma, Pose, Black Pantherand Crazy Rich Asians as steps forward in inclusive representation.
It wasn’t all sweetness though: the pair roasted Lady Gaga for allegedly “stealing” Madonna’s observation, saying: “There can be 100 people in a room and 99 of them don’t believe in you, and one does, and that one is Bradley Cooper.”
Oh also jokingly called out Emma Stone for playing an Asian role in Aloha, and Stone yelled, “I’m sorry!” from the audience.
They also weren’t afraid of tough love. Instead of feting the audience with pizza or champagne per usual, the hosts brought out a team of medical professionals to give the stars flu shots. They encouraged anti-vaxxers to put napkins over their heads so they could be passed over.
Steve Carell introduced the incomparable Carol Burnett with a hilarious montage of clips before she accepted the inaugural Carol Burnett Award to honor her achievements and contributions in television.
“I am really gobsmacked by this,” Burnett said after he introduced her. “Does this mean I get to accept it every year?”
Speaking of gobsmacked, Lady Gaga burst into tears when she learned that her A Star Is Born “Shallows” won Best Song. “I’m going to talk for a minute, because she’s indisposed,” fellow songwriter Mark Ronson quipped, dubbing her “the captain of the S.S. Shallow…the genius comes from you.”
After winning Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture, Regina King called for “Time’s Up Time’s Two,” and called for more inclusivity and equality in both work and representation in Hollywood.
Oh made history by hosting the Golden Globes and winning for her performance in Killing Eve; she is the first Asian woman to host a major awards show and win multiple Globes. She thanked her parents in her acceptance speech, both of whom were in the audience.
Christian Bale thanked Satan after winning Best Actor in a Comedy for his role playing Dick Cheney in Vice, as one does. “To my beautiful wife, who said saying less is more. She knows some of the dumb crap that comes out of my mouth…Thank you to Satan, who gave me inspiration on how to play this role.”
Jeff Bridges won the Cecil B. DeMille Award and managed to discuss geodesic domes, cufflinks and the connection of the individual to society. “We can turn this ship around” and “create a healthy planet for all of us,” he gushed.
Olivia Colman thanked her “bi***es” after winning Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy.
