Golden Globes 2017

Golden Globes 2017: The Best, Worst, Weirdest and Funniest Moments

We laughed. We cried. We wondered if Hidden Figures had actually changed its title to Hidden Fences.

This was all part of the viewing experience for the 74th Golden Globes, held Sunday night on NBC.

But regardless of who went home with a statuette, we took notice of some other winning (and losing) moments during the broadcast. 

From the sentimental (hi, Tracee Ellis Ross!) to the goofy (Stranger Things‘ Barb is alive!) to the just-plain-weird (wait, who kissed?!), we’ve whittled down the Jimmy Fallon-hosted ceremony to 11 highlights and lowlights.

    The Globes airing on NBC and Quantico being on life support had a lot to do with them not mentioning it during Chopras’ introduction.

    • Patrick says:

      It’s not on life support anymore. It is being kept alive by extraordinary means, and won’t be back next year. I’m truly sorry for all its fans. I watched most of last year, but eventually even I bailed. I wondered how it’s premise would last over multiple years, and I think the answer is “not well.” I’m sure Chopra was consulted about how she wanted to be inro’d, and I guess she chose the Baywatch reference.

    • Butch says:

      I think it is most likely the actors or their reps who decide what credits to mention during their introductions. Its not the producers of the show or the network where the show is broadcast.

    Jenna Hager seemed a bundle of nerves vs not prepared; Carell and Wig were hysterical and I thought Amy and Goldie were funny too. Brava Meryl! Fallon was flat and boring.

    It seemed like the audience was really loud and it came off as rude on tv. You could see it in some of the presenters faces that the noise was indeed, excessive so don’t get the impression it was a production issue although they had plenty of those too.

  3. Brian says:

    Couldn’t help but cringe when Michael Keaton also said Hidden Fences.

    • GregJ. says:

      I agree, annoying. I was to see and hear Goldie Hawn. I thought it was a funny bit can’t wait see her acting again! Mrs. Streep no words spoken very well LOVE her. Tracee it’s about time loved her on “Girlfriends” love her in “Black-ish” long over do!

    • Juke says:

      Me, too. Everybody seemed to be lambasting the Bush girl for the same mistake but not Michael Keaton. I suppose she was sober and he was really lit at that point, but still…

    • Hannah says:

      Well, to be fair, Jenna Bush was being paid (likely quite a lot of money) to say the names of the movies correctly – it was literally her job. If she can’t do her on camera job properly, people are going to comment. Michael Keaton was a drunk dude who messed up – which usually happens later in the night because of how much booze is consumed at the GG. It makes a lot more sense that people are talking about her screw-up more.

    I’d do Amy Shumer at the 50-yard line during the Super Bowl halftime show. Sexiest woman in show business right now, IMO.

  5. CK3 says:

    Amy Schumer also did an awkward and terrible bit with Jennifer Lawrence at the globes when they were writing a film together. I think she is funny, but I don’t think she is funny 24/7. I would have loved to see Donald Glover and Issa Rae do a bit instead. There are just better, imo, up and coming comedians with shows that could be featured instead of letting Schumer tank again.

    SpideyPool just became real…!

  7. Raul J says:

    Best moment: watching how unhinged Meryl Streep has become over the Trump presidency. I knew the left has become deranged but Meryl seems to have gone bananas.

  8. TV Gord says:

    Goldie has been doing that befuddled reading from the ‘prompter since the days of Laugh-In, so she has it down to such a fine art, younger people can’t tell whether she’s acting or messing up.

  9. Alison says:

    Was there an “In Memorium” segment? I saw it for Reynolds and Fisher, but did they do one for everyone else?

    • BickerBake says:

      No, they did not. There was some lame comment about time, but I think it was disgraceful to not include a full segment. The Mother-Daughter tribute was nice, but it was wrong and in bad taste to exclude everyone else in entertainment we lost last year. Just my 2 cents.

    • Erin says:

      The Globes don’t do an In Memoriam.

  10. Aly says:

    For me, I would have put the memorial to Carrie and Debbie in the list. I know the Golden Globes never do a memorial section, so the fact that they made an except this time made it all the more special. It was very beautiful.
