Golden Globes 2017: Best Moments

Golden Globes 2017: Best Moments

Jan 09, 2017

La La Land

The 74th Golden Globe Awards featured a slew of inspiring, funny and touching moments. We've rounded up our favorites.

Before the show began, attendees walked a red carpet, stopping to give very brief interviews to media personalities. We sympathize with the challenge facing Jenna Bush, who misspoke when talking to the perplexed Pharrell Williams

The show itself kicked off with what's called a "cold open," a video segment with no introduction and inspired by the opening sequence of the musical La La Land, with host Jimmy Fallon and a bevy of surprise guest appearances.

Another highlight came in the best supporting actress category. In announcing the nominees, Michael Keaton inadvertently referred to Octavia Spencer and her movie (Hidden Figures) as "Hidden Fences" too. It was the exact same mistake made on the red carpet earlier in the evening and set Twitter aflame with an instantaneous new hashtag #HiddenFences. But that shouldn't take anything away from Viola Davis' touching acceptance speech for her movie Fences:

Davis also introduced Meryl Streep, who accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award in an inspiring speech that prompted a range of comments on social media.


The lighter side of the show was fully evident when Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn took the stage to present an acting award. The two are appearing together in the upcoming comedy Snatched and it's clear that they've developed great chemistry.


Steve Carell and Kristin Wiig were hilarious as they recalled the first animated film each of them saw, shortly before presenting the award for best animated feature to Disney's Zootopia.

Our own Erik Davis was busy live-tweeting the show for CBS This Morning and he shared a great tweet capturing the moment when fellow nominees Ryan Reynolds and Andrew Garfield shared a kiss in the audience right after Ryan Gosling won the award as Best Actor.

Gosling was funny and touching in his acceptance speech.

Casey Affleck took home the Best Actor award for a drama.

In her acceptance speech for the Best Actress award, Emma Stone paid tribute to the idea of not giving up.

With La La Land emerging as the big winner, it was time to celebrate.
