Golden Globes 2015: The 7 Best And Worst Moments
The Golden Globes have come and gone yet again. As always, there were a number and highs, as well as some pretty unbelievable lows last night. We’re a bit sad that this will be Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s last year hosting the festivities. Who knows, Maybe in another two or three years, they will be invited back. Because so much happened last night, we decided to breakdown some of the best and worst moments. While the fashion on the red carpet may have left a lot to be desired, the Golden Globe Awards themselves were packed with lots of things for us to gossip about. Here are the 7 best and worst moments!
Best: George Clooney’s Acceptance Speech
When he accepted the Lifetime Achievement Award, George Clooney gave a pretty touching speech. Of course he made sure to make part of it about his wife, Amal. “I’ve had a pretty good year myself. Listen, it’s humbling to find somebody to love, especially when you’ve been waiting your whole life, especially when your whole life is 53 years. Tina and Amy, start the jokes,” he said. “Amal, whatever alchemy brought us together, I couldn’t be more proud to be your husband.”
He then got serious and talked about the recent terrorist attacks in Paris, France. “Today was an extraordinary day. Millions of people marched not just in Paris but all over the world. They were Christians and Jews and Muslims, they were leaders of countries all over the world. And they didn’t march in protest, they marched in support of the idea we will not walk in fear. So, Je Suis Charlie. Thank you,” he said.
Best: Ricky Gervais’ Return
Ricky Gervais – who hosted the Golden Globe Awards from 2010 to 2012 – made a good impression this year at the Golden Globe Award. He presented the award for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy. The notorious funnyman did what he does best – mock celebrity culture. “You’re better than ordinary people. You know it and they know it, deep down,” he said. “I’m not going to start picking on things you’ve done – some of it immoral, a lot of it illegal! If we’ve learned one thing, it’s that famous people are above the law, as it should be. I’m not going to get into the terrible things you’ve done to get here tonight. Streep! Clooney! I’m not even looking at Katie Holmes!”
People seemed to really like Gervais this time around. So much in fact that some want him to host next year’s Golden Globe Awards. He seems open to it too. “I’d love to do it again one day. It’s a good, fun industry party,” he said.
