The 2017 Golden Globes Top Moments and Highlights
Jimmy Fallon promised an unforgettable cold open for this year’s Golden Globes, and he didn’t disappoint. There were some fascinating moments. Fallon started the night’s ceremony with star-studded musical sequence which spoofed La La Land’s opening.
The late-night host was joined by his Saturday-Night Live friend Tina Fey, his friend Justin Timberlake and other nominees including Nicole Kidman, Ryan Reynolds, Amy Adams, Sarah Paulson and John Travolta the in the fascinating musical intro.
Fallon’s opening monologue did not go as smooth as the musical number. Moments after taking the stage, he burst out laughing, telling the audience his Teleprompter was not in good working condition. But he recovered quickly, making cracks about the 2016 US election.
The sociable host kept his cracks non-offensive. And while the audience was never going to get anything with the same taste of the previous host Ricky Gervais, Jimmy Fallon took a swipe at Ben Affleck, whose movie Batman Vs Superman received thumbs down the fans.
After its 2016 Emmy Awards’ sweep, The People v. O.J. Simpson, the night kicked off with wins for lead actress Sarah Paulson. After her Emmy win a few months ago, Sarah Paulson’s first-ever Golden Globe award did toast her famous portrayal of L.A County prosecutor Marcia Clark.
But it was La La Land that was music to the ears of foreign press. It scooped Best Musical/Comedy, Best Screenplay, Best Director, and Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone took lead actor awards. Ryan accepted the award by paying a beautiful tribute to his partner, Eva Mendes.
Casey Affleck scooped his first ever Globe for playing Lee Chandler in Manchester By The Sea. Meryl Streep was honored for a lifetime of remarkable work. While accepting the award, Streep took aim at Donald Trump for mocking a New York Times disabled reporter during his campaign rally last year.
The most surprising moment of the 2017 Golden Globes ceremony came when Brad Pitt made a surprise appearance as the presenter. As soon as Brad Pitt walked on stage, he was greeted with a big round of applause. Despite the excitement, the-53-year-old kept things cool with his hands inside his pockets.
The actor was at the ceremony to give a segment highlighting the Best Picture drama winner Moonlight. The moment marked one of Brad’s first official appearances since his estranged wife Angelina filed for divorce. He has kept a low profile since he split from wife Jolie, and even skipped the Voyage of Time premier in late September.
