The 77th annualÂkicked off Sunday night with comedian Ricky Gervais hosting for the fifth time.Â This year’s ceremony featured climate change talk, drunk speeches and some interesting surprises. Best picture went to , whileÂ RenÃ©e ZellwegerÂ won best actress forÂ Judy, andÂ Joaquin PhoenixÂ beat outÂ Adam DriverÂ andÂ Christian BaleÂ to win best actor forÂ .
Netflix lead the award show’s nominations with 34 across the film and TV categories. The streaming giant’s divorce drama Marriage Story came out on top with six nods (Laura Dern took home best supporting actress) and its mobster filmhad five.
Ricky’s Opening Monologue
Gervais had celebrities â€” including Tom Hanks, who did not seem to be enjoying himself during several audience cutaways â€” wincing with his opening monologue. He warned the audience he would be as mean as he’s always been at the award show, but reminded them “they’re just jokes” and to not take it too hard.
Best Actress in a TV Series â€” Musical or Comedy went to Phoebe Waller-Bridge for the brillantÂ Fleabag. She gave special thanks to her â€˜Hot Priestâ€™, Andrew Scott: â€œThere was a lot of talk about chemistry this season… but he can have chemistry with a pebble.â€
Brad Pitt won Best Supporting Actor for his role inÂ Once Upon A Time…Â â€” looking about a good decade younger than his 56 years. â€œThank you to the eclectic and ever-raucous Hollywood Foreign Press Association,â€ he said. He paid tribute to co-star Leonardo DiCaprio â€” or LDC, as he called him â€” and seemed to make a slightly garbledÂ TitanicÂ reference to him: â€œHey, I woulda shared the raft.â€ He also said he wanted to bring his parents along but thought better of it, â€œbecause any woman I stand next to, they think Iâ€™m dating.â€
Speech of the night
Â may not have pleased everyone, but it was certainly memorable, covering climate change issues and a plea for celebrities to use their private jets less often.
After acknowledging his fellow nominees, Phoenix, a long-time skeptic of Hollywood awards shows, said, â€œThere is no fâ€”ing best actor.â€
NBC proceeded to cut out the audio as he dropped multiple bombs, all of which were muted for TV viewers. â€œIâ€™m such a pain in the ass,â€ he continued in a rambling speech, acknowledging JokerÂ directorÂ Todd Phillips. â€œI cannot believe you put up with me.â€
He also lauded the Globes for switching to a vegan meal for the ceremony, thanking the Hollywood Foreign Press for â€œrecognizing and acknowledging the link between animal agriculture and climate change. Itâ€™s a very bold move, making tonight plant-based,â€ the vegan actor said.
Tom Hanks Breaks down
2020 Cecil B DeMille Award recipient Tom Hanks gave an articulate and at times emotional speech, paying tribute to his peers in the industry, apologising for being under the weather â€” and almost breaking down as he spoke about wife Rita Wilson and their children, all sat before him. â€œItâ€™s the cold that is making this happen, I swear to god, Iâ€™m not nearly this emotional at home!â€ he wailed.
Bushfires and more
Several of the nightâ€™s Golden Globe winners, including Patricia Arquette, Russell Crowe Ellen DeGeneres and Michelle Williams had made political and social statements throughout the show, from well-wishes for those affected by the devastating wildfires in Australia to pleas for more voters in the 2020 election.
Dressing down, literally!
Finally, a special shout-out toÂ AquamanÂ star Jason Momoa, who donned a suit for the red carpet…Â then stripped down to a tank top once at his table. Was it that hot in there?
