The Golden Globes: A dramatic night of firsts

From the night’s star-studded lineup to its lackluster jokes, the Golden Globes certainly rewarded performances and drama.

The 81st annual Golden Globes — a star-studded night full of many first nominations and wins. The attendees, which included actors, directors, producers and musicians, gathered together on Sunday, Jan. 7 at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills to celebrate each other’s nominated work.

Winning “Best Performance by a Female Actor in a Motion Picture for Drama,” Lily Gladstone made history as the second Indigenous actress nominated for this category — and the first Indigenous actor to ever win — for her work in “Killers of the Flower Moon”, directed by Martin Scorcese.

Accepting the speech in her Native tongue — Blackfoot — Gladstone said, “This is for every little rez (reservation) kid, every little urban kid, every little Native kid out there who has a dream, who is seeing themselves represented and our stories told — by ourselves in our own words — with tremendous allies and tremendous trust from and with each other.”

Tagging Lily Gladstone along for Best Performance by a Male Actor in a Motion Picture for Drama, Cillian Murphy takes the stage for his first-ever win for his work in “Oppenheimer”, directed by long-time collaborator Christopher Nolan. Nolan himself also won his first Golden Globe for Best Director in a Motion Picture for the same movie. A bittersweet moment for Nolan as he said, “The only time I’ve ever been on this stage before was accepting one of these on behalf of our dear friend, Heath Ledger, and that was complicated and challenging for me.”

Nolan and Murphy shared their wins with Robert Downey Jr., who won Best Supporting Male Actor in a Motion Picture for Drama, also for his work in “Oppenheimer.”
The Golden Globes also introduced a brand new award in the category for Cinematic and Box Office Achievement, highlighting “Barbie” and its massive success along with future high-grossing films.

Lead star and producer Margot Robbie said, in her acceptance speech, “Thank you so much to the Golden Globes for creating an award that celebrates movie fans. This is a movie about Barbie, but it’s also about humans. (…) We made it for you, and we made it with love and thank you for loving it back”.

Standing alongside Robbie on stage was also director Greta Gerwig, co-star Ryan Gosling, and their fellow supporting actors such as America Ferrera to accept the award.

According to “The Hollywood Reporter,” some requirements for movies receiving this nomination include topping $150 million at the global box office and at least $100 million domestically — “Barbie” grossed $1.4 billion globally.

Some other Golden Globe recipients celebrating their first win that night include:

  • Justine Triet and Arthur Harari for Best Screenplay for a Motion Picture for their film “Anatomy of a Fall”
  • Kiernan Culkin for Best Performance by a Male Actor on a Television Series for Drama in “Succession”
  • Ayo Edebiri for Best Performance for a Female Actor in a Television Series for a Musical/Comedy in “The Bear”
  • Billie Eilsih and Finneas for Best Original Song in a Motion Picture for “What Was I Made For”
  • Da’Vine Joy Randolph for Best Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture for “The Holdovers”
  • Steven Yeun for Best Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture for “Beef”
  • Matthew Macfadyen for Best Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role on Television for “Succession”
  • Ricky Gervais for Best Performance in Stand-Up Comedy on Television for “Ricky Gervais: Armageddon”
  • Elizabeth Debicki for Best Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role on Television on “The Crown”
  • Ali Wong for Best Performance by a Female Actor in a Limited Series, Anthology Series, or a Motion Picture Made for Television for “Beef”
  • Ludwig Göransson for Best Original Score in a Motion Picture for “Oppenheimer”

While the night was filled with new success and celebration, there were also issues within the star-studded building. The broadcast mainly showed the awards, heartfelt speeches, laughter and love, but a lot of drama circulated on social media after the event.

To start off the night, stand-up comedian Jo Koy was the host for this memorable occasion. In an interview with Variety, Koy revealed how he was informed about the hosting position just days before the event day. “Actually, I think I had less than two weeks because I didn’t get my writers until five days later,” Koy said. “When Tina [Fey] and all those other hosts got the gig, they had months to prepare. I’m literally looking at just days!”

Despite this level of unpreparedness and the immense pressure, Koy considered this a “‘finally’ moment,” and the show still went on.

Based on reactions from the Hollywood stars and viewers at home – Koy did not bring a show. Instead, his stand-up routine consisted of poorly aimed jokes and sexist comments towards Greta Gerwig and her “Barbie” film.

To which Koy told The Los Angeles Times, “I’m telling a joke — what happened to society where we can’t even joke with each other anymore.”

Following this, Koy made a joke about singer-songwriter Taylor Swift and NFL boyfriend Travis Kelce, “The difference between the NFL and the Golden Globes is we have less camera shots of Taylor Swift– I swear.” The camera pans to Swift who takes a sip of her drink with no reaction at all– Swifties at home were fuming.

Now… What happened with Kylie Jenner/Selena Gomez/Timothée Chalamet? The biggest talking point of that night fueling from a 5 second clip on X. The clip featured Gomez whispering to friends Taylor Swift and Keleigh Teller followed by a gasp and a nod.

There was a time of TikTok where the “for you” page was stuck on the #TeamSelena wave. There were many different clips in which fans claimed Hailey Bieber was copying or imitating Gomez, who was Justin Bieber’s former partner as of eight years ago. Fans also thought Jenner and Mrs. Bieber were making fun of Gomez and her eyebrows in an Instagram story, which everyone involved has denied to the public.

With this past public tension between Jenner and Gomez, fans speculate that Gomez whispered to Swift claiming Jenner denied a picture between her and Timothée Chalamet, Kylie’s new romantic partner.

Days after the event, TMZ caught Timothée outside where he denied any “bad blood” between Jenner and Gomez. Throughout the video, Chalamet can be heard saying, “What are the chances.”
