The night’s biggest winner was “La La Land,” the original, modern musical that stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. The film captured seven awards — sweeping all of its nominations and winning more trophies in a single night than any other film in event history, according to The Huffington Post.
Tracee Ellis Ross (“Black-ish”) also won big at the Golden Globes, becoming the first black actress in 35 years to win the lead actress award for musicals or comedies, according to The Los Angeles Times.
And, as you might expect, Donald Trump made headlines after the event, even though he wasn’t in attendance. The president-elect found himself to be the subject of ridicule from celebrities, often the punchline of the event’s jokes (beginning with host Jimmy Fallon’s opening monologue).
Meryl Streep became Trump’s largest critic of the night, suggesting in her lifetime award acceptance speech that the president-elect is unfit for office because he previously made fun of a disabled reporter, Time reported.
Trump responded in an interview with The New York Times, saying he never made fun of a disabled reporter and that he wasn’t surprised by Streep’s criticisms. He also retaliated against Streep’s comments on Twitter Monday morning, calling the actress “overrated.”
Here’s a look at 10 moments that got Twitter talking on Sunday night.
Moment No. 1: Jimmy Fallon’s opening jokes fall flat
As Vox reported, host Fallon fell flat in the opening minutes on Twitter because, well, he made fun of Trump. Critics pointed out that Fallon helped the president-elect win the election by ruffling his hair on national television and by not covering the real estate mogul objectively.
Moment No. 2: DJ Veep rocks the stage
After a commercial break, Julia Louis Dreyfus (“Veep”) temporarily became the Golden Globes DJ, according to The Washington Post.
No one knew why. But Twitter loved it.
Moment No. 3: Tracee Ellis Ross wins and people love her speech
Ross became the first black actress to win in her category in 35 years. She also celebrated the fact that she was winning the award at age 40, and that colored women have begun to win awards more consistently.
Twitter championed the “Black-ish” actress.
