The 75th Annual Golden Globes ceremony had many firsts this year. There were many funny and emotional moments on stage.

More importantly, this year’s Golden Globes highlighted heavy doses of politics and protest, while honouring the outstanding body of work in film and television. The majority of Hollywood A-listers united by making a bold statement with their black fashion choices. Here are some of the top moments that happened today:

1. Seth Meyer’s opening monologue

In Seth Meyer’s opening monologue, he wasted no time in zoning on the ongoing scandal of sexual harassment in Hollywood. “Happy new year, Hollywood! It’s 2018, marijuana is finally allowed, and sexual harassment finally isn’t,” the Late Night host joked. He also made fun of Seth Rogen, saying ,”Remember when he was the guy making trouble with North Korea? Simpler times.”

2. Tommy Wiseau tried to pull a Kanye West

James Franco won the Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy prize for his portrayal in “The Disaster Artist”. While the 39-year-old actor was giving the speech, the real Tommy Wiseau walked on stage and tried to take the mic. But nope, Franco wasn’t having any of it.

3. Allison Janney told the bird on her shoulder to shut up

Margot Robbie may have been the standout star in “I, Tonya”, but it was Allison Janney’s bird (a parakeet named Little Man) on her shoulder that almost stole the spotlight. During the award ceremony, Janney did so with a fake bird as her accessory.

4. The presenters took a jab at the male nominees

Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon had the crowd laughing when the presented the award for Best Actor. “These five nominees have agreed to give half of their salaries back so that the women could make more than them,” Davis said. During the Best Director category, Natalie Portman (alongside Ron Howard) was also ballsy enough to point out the obvious: Not a single woman was nominated.

5. A magical “Harry Potter” reunion

Potterheads, were y’all excited to see Hermione Granger and Cedric Diggory back together again? Emma Watson and Robert Pattinson were there to present the award for best television or movie in the limited series category.

Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort, who acted in the “Divergent” series and “Fault In Our Stars”, also had a reunion at the Golden Globes and we are feeling all the feels. They were both nominated for awards with Woodley for her role in “Big Little Lies” and Elgort in “Baby Driver”. We’re glad they met up with each other.

7. Oprah Winfrey became the first black women moment to receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award

Before the video tribute was played, Reese Witherspoon shared about the universal love for Oprah Winfrey. “There’s only one person whose names is a verb, an adjective, and a feeling. And that is Oprah. Oprah’s hugs could end wars, could solve world peace,” said the Oscar winner.

During Winfrey’s speech, the icon encouraged viewers to always “speak their truth” and acknowledged women who have endured abuse and injustice and were unable to speak out. “I want all the girls who are watching here and now to know that a new day is on the horizon!” she was quoted as saying.

8. The celebrities’ reaction

All hail the King in the North and the Mother of Dragons.

9. Kelly Clarkson freaking out when she saw Meryl Streep 

And almost gave Ryan Seacrest a heart attack. Truth be told, we’d probably have the same reaction if we were in the same situation. Lol 😉

Usually awkward & quiet, but gets talkative once the conversation revolves around movies, TV shows, music, and entertainment.
