Recap of 2017 Golden Globes with GIFs!

Despite a fun cold open, the 2017 Golden Globes was, well, a stinker. And the source of the stink? Jimmy Fallon. Last night officially made it clear that Fallon is only funny when he’s playing off of other people. When it’s just him by himself, yikes. His opening monologue was garbage, and his jokes between awards were garbage. He even had Questlove onstage with him, yet that didn’t help improve his bits or spark some energy in the show. Oh, and Jimmy, if you’re going to do Chris Rock impressions, please remember…

Here’s the La La Land-like cold open, which is worth a watch.

Now, let’s do a GIF recap of other moments from the show! To start, Julia Louis-Dreyfus took Questlove’s spot at one point. I love how she always gets a bit at the Globes, regardless of who’s hosting.

Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn presented together because they have a movie coming out soon. And because it’s the Globes, no one could tell if this was a bit or if they’re both smashed.

Kristen Wiig and Steve Carell presented Best Animated Film and shared stories about the first animated films they ever saw (Bambi and Fantasia, respectively), which then turned into hilariously painful sob stories about dead pets and departing fathers.

John Legend became a dad last year and lost his sense of rhythm.

Donald Glover and FX’s Atlanta scooped up the TV comedy awards after one season. I need to watch this show.

When Hugh Laurie won for The Night Manager, even he was like “Wait…really? Why?” Which was a trend at last night’s show.

Practically every white person from red carpet reporters to Michael Keaton kept merging two films with black casts, Fences and Hidden Figures, calling it Hidden Fences. I’ll let Viola handle this one.

And you can’t forget the awkward as all hell speech from Tom Hiddleston (who I love, but who definitely went down the ranks after this speech) about South Sudan and UNICEF that he brought up basically to compliment his show, The Night Manager. It was baaaaaaaaad. I’ll let Christian Slater handle this one.

Rather than talk about her amazing career during her Lifetime Achievement award speech, Meryl Streep gave a very poignant speech about the importance of the being kind, not inciting violence, and not letting bullies run your country push others around. Oh, and she quoted Carrie Fisher to end it all.

La La Land unsurprisingly won big. And Ryan Gosling beat out Ryan Reynolds (who I totally thought could be this year’s wild card).

And Emma Stone was awkwardly adorable as usual.
