The Best Moments from the Golden Globes 2015



Tina & Amy’s Opening Monologue

Three-time (and last time) Golden Globes hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler slayed their opening monologue. With jokes about roles for women over 40, Steve Carrell as a psycho murderer and Wes Anderson being weird, viewers could already sense disappointment in next year’s host. But, no one is perfect and the duo had their share of missteps in form of audience-gasp-inducing Bill Cosby impressions and basically being non-existant for the rest of the show.

Chrissy Teigen’s Face

As soon as her husband’s name was called (that would be John Legend winning Best Original Song) Chrissy Teigen was all smiles. Until the camera cut away from Legend’s acceptance speech to show….whatever kind of face that is. The screen grab immediately circulated social media as a meme and Teigen herself even tweeted about not practicing a good cry face.

Emotional Speeches

There were so many first-time winners – Jeffrey Tambour (Transparent), Gina Rodriguez (Jane The Virgin), Joanne Froggatt (Downton Abbey) – that in a shocking turn of events, most of the speeches actually ended up sounding authentic and emotional. Transparent director Jill Soloway, in particular, dedicated the show’s win to ‘trans people who died too young’. We’re not crying, YOU’RE crying!

JLo’s ‘Globes’

To the glee of 12-year-old boys everywhere, the usually suave Jeremy Renner irked viewers with a throwaway comment about his co-presenter’s chest. Jennifer Lopez (in a sparkly, low cut number…as is her wont) offered to open the envelope because she ‘has the nails’ and Renner came back with ‘You’ve got the globes too.’ Har har.

Margaret Cho’s North Korean Joke

File this one under ‘jokes that run too long.’ It’ll go right next to jokes that begin with ‘file this one under.’ Margaret Cho appeared in the broadcast, in character, as a North Korean government official where she glowered, shook her head and demanded a photo with Meryl. Cho was brought back a total of three times, and a bit that was barely funny to begin with lost its appeal more and more each time.

Everyone Is Weirdly Tanned

The past few days must have been mostly overcast in LA because almost every celebrity at the award show was a gross shade of orange. And as demonstrated by the above photo, it wasn’t just the women. We can only imagine what kinds of streaks who be uncovered after a long night in a suit. Which brings us to the next slide…

George Clooney Received the Cecil B. DeMille Award

Reigning Hollywood royalty The Clooneys (George and wife Amal née Alamuddin, a human rights lawyer) were on hand and in the front row last night. Clooney was receiving the Cecil B. DeMille award for lifetime achievement and Amal was looking on lovingly, if not a bit above it all. Clips of Clooney’s career were played before his acceptance, but there was one glaring omission: we all remember you on Roseanne, Cloons!

Prince Shows Up

And the audience collectively loses its shit. Especially Allison Janney who appears to be the biggest Prince fan in the whole wide world.

Everyone Is Weirdly Sweaty

Not even the swirling rumours of a switched off air conditioner or a party guests fainting because of the heat could create enough of a breeze to cool down this crowd. Between presenters gleaming with a sweat sheen and grumpy Frances McDormand fanning herself, this was definitely a hot Golden Globes broadcast.

There were Bill Cosby jokes, a visit from a North Korean official, sweaty celebrities and, of course, Jennifer Lopez’s boobs. Here are our top 9 moments.
