The 73rd Annual Golden Globes took place January 10th, 8 PM ET live on NBC. Top honors of the night went to The Martian and The Revenant for best films – check out the complete winners list right here as well as the evenings most awkward moments – which there were to be frank – a tremendous amount of…
Check out my predictions HERE to see how many I got wrong – here’s a hint – A LOT. I nailed a mere seven correctly. It was pretty sad. It’s almost as if the voters of the Hollywood Foreign Press decided to draw names from a hat when it came to the TV categories. I was stunned at how random the choices were – what the fuck is Mozart in The Jungle? I seriously have no clue what that is right now.
The Top 3 Most Awkward Moments of The Night
#1. Mel Gibson and Ricky Gervais
Mel Gibson and Gervais dominated the 2016 Golden Globes with their strange and uncomfortable encounter. Who in the shit thought it would be a good idea to let Mel present something? He’s still shunned am I wrong? I don’t give a shit if it is for a Mad Max thing — that dude should not be up there. Before bringing Gibson onto the stage, Gervais not only made fun of his alcoholism but he reminded us that Mel still believes the Jews run EVERYTHING. It was hilarious.
When Gibson took the podium he cracked a joke that every time he sees Gervais that it reminds him he needs another colonoscopy. Gervais then returned to the stage and the two sorta hugged in one of the most strange and forced moments in TV history. Then Gervais asked Mel “what the fuck does sugartits mean?” in reference to his drunken tirade against a female police officer a while back. Making things even stranger, Gibson brushes it off by alluding to how he never said that. What? What the hell is happening here? Awkward greatness.
#2. Lady Gaga Wins Best Actress
Let’s try to remember how Gervais has said repeatedly tonight that these awards do not matter because they are all bought and paid for by the studios ahead of time (a sentiment that Denzel Washington himself later echoed when he received a lifetime achievement award and couldn’t read his speech because he forgot his glasses. No don’t worry about it Denzel, it’s not like you knew you’d be going up there to say some shit). Bonus: Look at Leonardo DiCaprio’s face when Gaga wins for her hilarious role as a vampire in the cringe-worthy latest season of American Horror Story: Hotel.
Gaga said shit like, this is the greatest moment of my life, I feel like Cher, I always wanted to be an actress first but music sorta just happened, blah blah shut the hell up. This moment was a travesty for all performers who have been acting for years and trying their damndest to earn a living at their craft. Gaga is HORRIBLE and her performance in AHS is one of the reasons I actually stopped, for the first time ever mind you, watching that show and I was over halfway finished. Watching her cry and shake and barely make it up to the podium was a riot. Shut the hell up dude – you knew you were winning and this is just sad.
#3. Tarantino Makes a Ghetto Reference
Don’t get me wrong Quentin – I love you. This is my favorite filmmaker and writer of all time but sometimes Tarantino just says… the weirdest shit and tonight may be the worst. After accepting the Best Original Score award for Ennio Morricone who couldn’t make it (The Hateful Eight), Tarantino proceeds to call Ennio his favorite composer of all time and then makes a strange but brief comparison to film composing as being “that ghetto”. Yup — that was kinda racist. It was accidentally racist mind you and not super racist, but still…. a little bit racist dude.
Tarantino then goes off to say that Morricone has never won an award for something he’s done in North America. That dude has won two Golden Globes already. So that’s not right. Then at the end Jamie Foxx says, “Ghetto… Wow” before moving onto the next presenter. Foxx starred in Tarantino’s Django Unchained and even that guy is slightly disturbed at Quentin’s ghetto reference. This shit was not cool. It makes me sad – someone calm Tarantino down a little – he’s not doing so hot with public speeches right now.
