Golden Globes 2014: 5 Best Moments of the Evening
The 71st annual Golden Globes kicked off award season last night and it was a great start. We saw an awkward moment between Diddy and Bono and got plenty of laughs. So what were the highlights of last night’s show? Read on for the top five:
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler ≡ best hosting duo ever
As if their flawless outfits weren’t enough, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler raised the bar in terms of what’s required of an award show host. Their opening monologue was filled with jokes that were actually funny including a stab at George Clooney’s affinity for dating women half his age. As the night went on they kept us laughing by poking fun at Leonardo DiCaprio’s love of supermodels and having Amy dress up as Tina Fey’s ill-mannered teenage son.
Jacqueline Bisset’s weird acceptance speech
After beating out Sofia Vergara in the Best Supporting Actress category for her role in Dancing on the Edge, British actress Jacqueline Bisset took a long walk to the stage to deliver a lengthy and awkward speech. It’s hard to decipher exactly what she said – partly because it was long and drawn out, and partly because we were too distracted looking at her disheveled hair. Jacqueline sported the laziest award show hair since Rihanna rocked a doobie at the AMAs last year. Since she hadn’t won a Globe in her career, didn’t bother to comb her hair and got hammered before the second award was even presented let’s just assume she thought she wouldn’t win anything therefore didn’t have to put in any effort. Not a good decision!
Emma Thompson drunk on stage
Jacqueline Bissett wasn’t the only star noticeably under the influence of a substance – Emma Thompson looked like she had a drink or six herself. Thompson presented the award for Best Screenplay with her Louboutins in one hand and a martini in the other. At least her dress was cute?
Apparently we should all be watching Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Andy Samberg’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine was one of a handful of shows that debuted this fall and though no one seemed to be watching, according to the Golden Globes we all should be. The FOX sitcom was two for two nabbing Best TV series musical or comedy and Best Actor in a TV series (Samberg). Interested in checking it out? Season 1 returns tomorrow, Tuesday January 14 at 8:30pm on FOX.
Did 12 Years a Slave get snubbed?
This biopic based on the personal diaries of Solomon Northup, a free man sold into slavery, managed to nab seven nominations. As fans watched the film get passed up for Best Original Score, Best Screenplay, Best Director, Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture, Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture and Best Actor in a Motion Picture (Drama) all hope was lost. Then 12 Years a Slave took home one of the top honors of the night – Best Motion Picture, Drama. At least we got another chance to see Lupita Nyong’o in that red dress right?
