The 2019 Golden Globes opening bit played it safe, foregoing the usual wicked humor and instead going full-on nice. Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh were charged with guiding the 76th Annual Golden Globes through what turned out to be a nearly three and a half hour broadcast. Fortunately for Samberg and Oh, they were able to disappear from the stage for the final hour of the broadcast as the producers rushed to finish up the show.

The bland opening didn’t bode well for the night’s telecast, however a handful of winners were able to liven up the broadcast. Christian Bale delivered one of the most memorable speeches of the 2019 Golden Globes while accepting his Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy for Vice. “Thank you to that geezer over there, Adam,” said Bale, pointing out Vice director Adam McKay. “He said, ‘I’ve got to find somebody who can be absolutely charisma free and reviled by everybody.’ So he said, ‘There will be Bale in it.’ Thank you. And for all the competition, I will be cornering the market on charisma free (bleep). What do you think? Mitch McConnell next? That could be good. Thank you to Satan for giving me inspiration on how to play this role.”

Accepting the Best Supporting Actress award, If Beale Street Could Talk star Regina King delivered a passionate speech. “Barry Jenkins, I love you with all my heart. Thank you for your empathy, thank you for telling stories so rich, and thank you for giving us a film that my son said to me when he saw it that it was the first time he really saw himself,” said King.

Glenn Close was very obviously surprised to hear her name called as Best Actress – Drama. Close appeared shocked and overcome with emotion as she accepted the Golden Globe for her outstanding work in The Wife. “It took 14 years to make this film,” explained Close. “And I was attached to it, thanks to my wonderful Kevin Huvane and Franklin Ludd, who were behind me and said, ‘Yes, this is a great story, and we need to stay with it until it happens.’ And, you know, it was called The Wife. I think that’s why it took 14 years to get made.

But anyway, to play a character is so internal. And I’m thinking of my mom who really sublimated herself to my father her whole life. And in her 80s she said to me, ‘I feel I haven’t accomplished anything.’ And it was so not right. And I feel what I’ve learned through this whole experience is that, you know, women, we’re nurturers. That’s what’s expected of us. We have our children. We have our husbands, if we’re lucky enough, and our partners, whoever. But we have to find personal fulfillment. We have to follow our dreams. We have to say, ‘I can do that, and I should be allowed to do that.'”

Topping this year’s list of winners on the film side of the Golden Globes were Green Book, Roma, and Bohemian Rhapsody. Bohemian Rhapsody pulled off the biggest surprise win of the year, snagging the Best Motion Picture – Drama award. Its lead actor, Rami Malek, took home the Best Actor award for his performance as rock icon Freddie Mercury.

On the television side, The Kominsky Method and The Americans finished on top in the Comedy and Drama categories. The Assassination of Gianni Versace was named Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television and its star, Darren Criss, took top honors in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television category.
