A few observations:
I didn’t quite know what to think of the opening monologue courtesy of Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh (she was at her best when she thanked her adorable parents for her Golden Globe win). Ryan Coogler’s reaction to a Samberg’s Black Panther joke says it all.
The highlights included Jim Carrey, Sandra Oh’s mom, and Emma Stone:

The opening monologue just reiterated the fact that we really don’t need a host of the upcoming Academy Awards. Let the actors and actresses move the show along.

HFPA President Maher Tatna was the only one wearing a Time’s Up pin (a stark contrast to last year’s ceremonies).

Steve Carell should be considered for next year’s host of the Golden Globes (minus his work in Welcome to Marwen) as he presents the first ever Carol Burnett award to Carol Burnett.

Idris Elba should bring Taylor Swift when he performs at Coachella (and his daughter, Isan, was the Golden Globe Ambassador of the night).
The moment when Lady Gaga deservedly wins for A Star is Born (it’s the only Golden Globe win of the night for the film).
Can you imagine if Regina King’s speech was actually played off?

Mahershala Ali should do a MasterClass on acceptance speeches.

Sam Elliott recording a voiceover about Jeff Bridges is what dreams are made of. It was a tough act to follow for Jeff Bridges after receiving the Cecil B DeMille award when Oprah won it the year before.
Harrison Ford: “Nobody told me I had to follow Jeff Bridges”.
Best intro to the cast of “This is Us”. Sandra Oh: “Break out the tissues, because you’re all going to want to masturbate to them,”
Dick Van Dyke deserved every second of his standing ovation while presenting with his new Poppins.
Halle Berry is 52 years old. How? Holy.

Peter Farrelly just knocked himself out of hosting the Oscars with his lengthy speech.
The look on Glenn Close’s face after winning Best Actress, and her kissing Michael Douglas is a Fatal Attraction reunion we’d thought we’d never see.

Rami Malek losing twice for Mr. Robot in the past, but wins big for his role as Freddie Mercury in the present.

They are the champions, my friend. Is it deserved? Well, we’ll see when the Academy Award nominations are announced on January 22nd. It’s quite the head scratcher when Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor didn’t speak when Bohemian Rhapsody won Best Motion Picture.
