Golden Globes 2019: The Good, Bad, and Ugly

Spread the love

What’s a Hollywood award night without a bit of drama? If you are a little late on catching up with the big night, we bring to you the high points of the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards- jibes, jabs, fun, pun, wins et al.

Oh Sandra!

Sandra Oh, who had already impressed us much with her impeccable choice of evening gown, stunned us with her opening monologue. This is what she said in honor of the achievements of the extremely talented entertainers present in the audience who welcomed her words with cheer and applause, “I said yes to the fear of being on this stage tonight because I wanted to be here to look out into this audience and witness this moment of change. I see you, all these faces of change. And now, so will everyone else.”

And that’s not all; she even took a dig at the ‘Asian’ leads of Ghost in the Shell and Aloha — Scarlett Johansson and Emma Stone, though none of them are Asian. As soon as she said, “[“Crazy Rich Asians”] is the first studio film with an Asian American lead since “Ghost in the Shell” and “Aloha,” Emma was quick to respond with an “I’m Sorry!” from the crowd.

And did we say, she made history? The woman clearly stole the show, not just for her talent and wit, but also for being the first person of Asian descent to host the Golden Globes and the first woman of Asian descent to win more than one. Here’s to the woman who’s not forgotten her roots and who is the first woman of Asian descent to win a Golden Globe for best actress in a TV drama after 39 years (Yoko Shimada won in this category for Shogun in 1980).

Flu Shots For All

There was chaos in the audience when an army of workers went to the stars with needles to give away flu shots. “Roll up your sleeves, Hollywood, you’re all getting… flu shots,” said Oh and Samberg. With LMFAO’s rap anthem ‘Shots’ blaring in the background and several vocal anti-vaccine personalities around, this was quite a cheeky move.

Jokes Gone Awry

Andy Samberg’s roast while welcoming presenter Chris Pine on stage failed to amuse the man himself. Here’s what Andy had said, “Please welcome Chris Pine and his busted face!”

After poking fun at Les Moonves, Samberg introduced the cast of The Big Bang Theory. This immensely talented bunch earning the fattest paychecks on television with a 12-year long and successful run didn’t look particularly happy with the jab.

“Now here with a surprising, unrehearsed takedown of Les Moonves is the cast of The Big Bang Theory,” Samberg had said referring to the CBS chief who’s been accused of sexual harassment. Although the joke was welcomed with laughs by the audience, the Big Bang Theory stars ignored it with a pause before going on to present the categories.
