The 2017 Golden Globes began with a La La Land-style musical tribute featuring Jimmy Fallon, Amy Adams, Nicole Kidman, Rami Malek, Evan Rachel Wood, and Game of Thrones‘ Kit Harington mimicking Jon Snow’s return from the dead. Ryan Reynolds crawled on top of a piano as Golden Globes host Fallon played, and then Justin Timberlake stepped in to sweep Fallon off of his feet. Once the musical bit was over, the night’s technical problems began. Fallon’s opening monologue got off to a rocky start because the teleprompters weren’t working and once when they did, it took a while for Fallon to find his footing.


It didn’t take long for Trump references to pop up, and the President Elect was frequently the butt of jokes as well as the topic of impassioned speeches. Meryl Streep used her time on stage as winner of this year’s Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Cecil B. DeMille Award to deliver a speech in which she spoke about immigrants, empathy, and the need to support each other and to support journalists, in particular. She ended on an emotional note, recalling what her friend Carrie Fisher told her. “Take your broken heart, make it into art,” said Streep, voice catching.

The 74th Annual Golden Globes will be remembered for Streep’s speech and for the comedy team of Kristen Wiig and Steve Carell who stole the show and should be signed up immediately to host 2018’s event before they have time to think about it. It will also go down as the year in which two films merged into one, with both Jenna Bush and Michael Keaton talking about Hidden Fences, mixing up Hidden Figures and Fences. As far as the actual awards presentations, it was a La La Land kind of night. The romantic musical love letter to Hollywood took home a record-breaking seven awards. The only other film to snag more than one honor was the French drama, Elle, which didn’t even make the short list of potential Oscar contenders. On the television side, The Night Manager earned three Golden Globes followed by Atlanta, The Crown, and The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story with two each.
