Fiji Water Girl, Rami Malek Wins Best Actor, And 23 More Highlights From #GoldenGlobes2019
Fiji Water Girl was out there living her best life.
It's officially awards season in Hollywood! Kicking off the glitz and glam is last night's 76th Golden Globe Awards in a ceremony hosted by dynamic duo Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh.
It is worth noting that Oh also made history as the first Asian woman to host the Golden Globes.
Now let's face it, most of us don't have the time to catch up on the three-hour spectacle... so here's a recap of the 76th Golden Globes in 25 highlights:
1. Fiji Water Girl did more than just serving water. The unlikely star was also serving ~looks~ as her striking figure photobombed multiple celebs on the red carpet.
2. Datuk Michelle Yeoh was spotted wearing *that* ring from Crazy Rich Asians, which actually belongs to her IRL
3. Lady Gaga caught up with Queen's Brian May. Y'know, the band who wrote a song that inspired her stage name a.k.a. Radio Gaga.
Tbh I added this segment in simply to disclose that bit of trivia. You're welcome. :p
4. Speaking of Lady Gaga, could we just take a moment to marvel at her Cinderella-esque periwinkle gown?! *heart eyes*
5. The ladies who were absolutely glowing on the red carpet
6. Let's give it up for the gentlemen who brought their A-game to the awards show
7. Hi couples on the Golden Globes red carpet... please adopt me. <3
8. Hosts Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh kicked things off with an opening monologue that called back to Lady Gaga's "there can be 100 people in the room" speech
9. Emma Stone yelled out "I'm sorry" after Sandra Oh called her out for playing a blonde-haired part-Asian character in Aloha
10. Looks like Michael B. Jordan missed the "come in sparkles" memo, but that didn't stop the cast of Black Panther from enacting the iconic 'Wakanda Forever' salute
11. Darren Criss became the first American-Filipino to win a Golden Globe and dedicated the award to his Filipino mother
Criss won the Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television, beating out high-profile nominees Antonia Banderas, Benedict Cumberbatch, Daniel Brühl, and Hugh Grant.
12. Taylor Swift made surprise appearance to present the Best Song award in a gorgeous beaded gown... and alongside Idris Elba, no less!
13. Taylor and Lady Gaga hugged each other as the latter went onstage to receive her award. We stan two legends who support each other. :')
14. In a moment that's not captured by official cameras, Bohemian Rhapsody star Rami Malek awkwardly went up to Lady Gaga to introduce himself and it's the cutest thing I've seen today
15. Things also got a little "awks" for Idris Elba when current James Bond Daniel Craig stared him down
16. A bunch of nurses went around giving celebs free flu shots to LMFAO's Shots. Yeah, we're confused too.
17. Sandra Oh became the first Asian woman to win the Best Actress award in the Golden Globes in almost 40 years since Yoko Shimada first won in 1980 for her role in Shogun
This is also the actress' second Golden Globe, having won the award for Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Miniseries, or Television Film in 2006 for her role in Grey’s Anatomy.
In a heartwarming moment during her acceptance speech, Oh thanked and bowed to her parents, who were in the audience during the ceremony.
18. Maya Rudolph and Amy Poehler got "engaged" onstage and now, everyone wants them to host the Oscars
For context, the duo were referencing the very public proposal that happened at September's Emmy Awards when winner Glenn Weiss popped the question to his partner while accepting an award.
19. Hollywood legend Dick Van Dyke received a standing ovation when he appeared onstage with Mary Poppins Returns co-star Emily Blunt
20. I am also living for Emily's husband a.k.a. A Quiet Place director cheering her on while she's onstage
