Hollywood’s brightest stars gathered at the Beverly Hilton hotel last night for the 73rd annual Golden Globes ceremony. We highlight the six most unforgettable moments.
1. Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence Were the Funniest Presenters
Real-life BFFs Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence lit up the stage when they presented highlights from their best comedy-nominated films Trainwreck and Joy, respectively. After they sashayed their way to the microphone, the hilarious duo introduced themselves as J.Law and A-Schu. “Amy, you can’t just give yourself a celeb nickname,” Lawrence responded. “It has to come naturally.”
2. Sylvester Stallone Received a Standing Ovation for His First Golden Globe Win
The entire room was on their feet applauding as Sylvester Stallone accepted a Golden Globe for best supporting actor for his performance in the latest installment of the iconic Rocky franchise, Creed. He ended his heartfelt speech by thanking his character. “Most of all, I wanna thank my imaginary friend Rocky Balboa for being the best friend I ever had.”
3. Lady Gaga Gave an Emotional Speech as She Accepted Her Award
Pop superstar Lady Gaga took home her first-ever Golden Globe for her debut television acting role as The Countess in American Horror Story: Hotel. “I wanted to be an actress before I wanted to be a singer,” she said during her tearful speech. “But music worked out first.” She described the experience as one of the greatest moments of her life.
4. Denzel Washington and His Wife Inspired #CoupleGoals
Denzel Washington was honored with the prestigious Cecil B. DeMille award for his illustrious career achievements spanning nearly four decades. The actor brought his family up on stage with him, but he forgot one important thing: his glasses. After his wife Pauletta pointed it out, he requested her help in reading his speech, only she didn’t have her glasses either.
5. Taraji P. Henson Handed Out Cookies After Her Win
Taraji P. Henson added some life to the party when she received her Golden Globe for her role as Cookie in Empire. Henson grabbed handfuls of cookies and passed them out to audience members on her way to the podium. “Cookies for everyone tonight,” she said. “My treat.” Before the actress was finished with her speech, the teleprompter instructed her to wrap it up. “Wait a minute. I’ve waited 20 years for this, you gon’ wait!” she responded.
6. Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt Provided Major Eye Candy
If there was an award for best-looking presenters, it would go to Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt hands down. The crowd gave a roaring round of applause as the two introduced their film The Big Short, which was nominated for best drama, with a little playful banter.
