If you missed the 73rd Annual Golden Globes Award Ceremony because you were too busy enjoying your last few nights in Cabo or moving in after returning from abroad, Street is here to recap some notable moments from the Golden Globes that you can (and should) bring up in today’s Cinema Studies class.

Wrong Category? 

Ricky Gervais wondered why the Hollywood Foreign Press Association considered The Martian a comedy or musical. 

Guess it didn’t really matter as Matt Damon took home Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture–Comedy or Musical and the movie got Best Motion Picture–Comedy or Musical… two wins out of its three noms.


Nineteen years after crying, “I’ll never let go, Jack. I’ll never let go,” Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio were caught on camera reuniting just before a commercial break. They both took home Golden Globes too! 

Bear with Them

Last week, Channing Tatum took down the house with a surprise appearance of Queen Bey as he lip-synced and danced to “Run the World” during Spike’s “Lip Sync Battle” against his wife, Jenna Dewan Tatum. 

He took the stage again to present and announce Best Supporting Actress, but his Jump Street co-star, Jonah Hill, remained sitting in the audience. He wore a bear hat dressing as his “substitute,” the bear from The Revenant. As he made his way to join Channing onstage, he tried to keep it together with a few remarks that only those sitting in the room could hear.

Wrong Winner?

Straight Outta Compton was a notable snub that failed to get a single Golden Globe nomination…until Jamie Foxx announced that it won Best Original Score in a Motion Picture… looks like he pulled a Steve Harvey.

Jon Hamm

As the popular Mad Men series comes to its conclusion, Jon Hamm is ending it on a sweet note. He took home the trophy for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series Drama.

Quentin Tarantino

While he didn’t win Best Screenplay for The Hateful Eight, Tarantino’s latest film did win Best Original Score. The composer, Ennio Morricone, wasn’t there to accept, so Tarantino accepted on his behalf. Oh, and should we mention that he made a mistake when he claimed Morricone had never won an award for a movie that he’d done? This will be the third Golden Globe win for Morricone, who previously won Best Original Score awards for La leggenda del pianista sull'oceano and The Mission.

JLaw and A-Schu

Many have said 2015 was the year of Amy, with her summer blockbuster, Trainwreck. However, JLaw has been bringing joy (pun intended) to the HFPA ever since she and Bradley Cooper teamed up with David O'Russell in 2012 for Silver Linings Playbook, as she brought home yet another heavy trophy.

Denzel Washington

Honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award, Denzel takes the stage with his family opening with the memorable line: “I lost my speech.”

Standing Ovation

Literally. When Sylvester Stallone took the stage winning Best Supporting Actor for his role as Rocky Balboa in Creed, Stallone received a standing ovation. As he gave his thank you's, he finished off with the most important one, thanking his “imaginary friend, Rocky Balboa for being the best friend I’ve ever had.”
