Drumroll, please, for last night’s “party of all reward parties,” essentially The 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards. It was exactly how hostess Liliana described it: expect the unexpected! From the spectacular fashions to draw dropping wins and speeches, this year’s ceremony brought strong competition between film and television, and Cliché has The Golden Globe Awards 2016 Highlights for you here!
Welcoming Back Host: Ricky Gervais
He was a topic of discussion during the Fashion Highlights, and with good reason. The return of Ricky Gervais was enough to keep audiences at the Golden Globes and those watching at home with tense smiles and baited breath, wondering what he was going to say next. Overall, Gervais, with his “it’s funny because it’s true” moments and all, did a good job of hosting; though, Matt Damon might feel otherwise. (Sorry, Matt.)
Best Supporting Actress In A Supporting Role In Any Motion Picture: Kate Winslet, Steve Jobs
The epitome of elegance and grace, Kate Winslet, never ceases to amaze us with her loveliness — be it her diction, dress, or overall being. And yes, Kate, we couldn’t agree with you more: 2015 was an incredible year for women in film.
Best Performance By An Actress In A Television Series, Comedy or Musical: Rachel Bloom, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
Receiving her first win, Rachel is proof that patience and determination pays off, and so does never giving up!
Our Favorite Celebrity Hostesses: Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer
These two beauties were a hilarious duo. They had a harmonious chemistry, and to be honest, we’re envious of their sharp-witted, inside humor. We wished we could’ve sat with them at the after-party.
Best Performance By An Actor In A Supporting Role In Any Motion Picture: Sylvester Stallone, Creed
Who else had goosebumps when Sylvester Stallone received his award? It was the first standing ovation of the night, and no one seemed to be more shocked than Sylvester himself. It was a moment that left us with all the feels.
Best Performance By An Actress In A Limited Series: Lady Gaga, American Horror Story: Hotel!
Though music came first, acting has been a close second calling for artist and singer Lady Gaga. Her guest appearance on American Horror Story: Hotel! showed us her flexibility and creativity in the entertainment and music industry. Not to mention, Lady Gaga’s speech was as beautiful as she. (On a side note: what was up with Leo’s side-eye? We spy memes.)
Best Original Song for Spectre: “Writing’s On The Wall”
Cheers to our boy, Sam Smith! We couldn’t be happier for this gentleman who’s a sweetheart through and through, and of course, a genuinely talented artist, too.
The Cecil B. DeMille Award: Denzel Washington
Tom Hanks presented the most touching speech in admiration and respect for Denzel Washington. Listening to Tom Hanks’ speech and watching Denzel Washington’s reaction was enough to have us reaching for the tissues. We couldn’t think of a better person to have been honored with such an award; congrats, Denzel!
Best Performance By An Actress In A Television Series, Drama: Taraji P. Henson, Empire
After much waiting and anticipation, Taraji finally received the recognition she deserves! (By the way, we would’ve loved some of those baked cookies!) Her award for her role as Cookie proves that the character’s personality is what our society longs for: to answer without hesitation or manipulate words, as described by Taraji during the Fashion Highlights.
Best Performance By An Actor In A Motion Picture: Leonardo DiCaprio, The Revenant
The look of anticipation on Leonardo’s face could be felt through television screens and right into our hearts. We practically felt the anxiety riding within him, as everyone waited to hear the results, but how could we blame him? After listening to Leonardo’s interviews on the red carpet and acceptance speech regarding The Revenant, it’s no wonder the man was almost brought to tears when his name was announced. Now how about the next stop: the Oscars?!
