10 Things you missed at the Golden Globes

The annual Golden Globes (2018) was held this past weekend and has since prompted much conversation about what happened at the award show. Yes, awards were given to talented individuals but more importantly, those individuals chose to take a stand against something larger. Here are 10 things you might’ve missed:

  1. Stars wore black in support of the Time’s Up movement. It showed solidarity between the stars against gender inequality and harassment.
  2. Stars chose to walk besides woman rights advocates. Michelle Williams walked alongisde #MeToo founder Tarana Burke. Meryl Streep brought Ai-Jen Poo from Nat’l Domestic Workers Alliance. Laura Dern also decided to bring along Monica Ramirez, the head of the Nat’l Farmworkers Women’s Alliance.
  3. Kelly Clarkson’s dream came true when she met Meryl Streep for the first time.
  4. There were a ton of awesome reunions between Emma Watson and Robert Pattinson (Harry Potter), Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis (Thelma and Louise), as well as Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort (Divirgent and The Fault in Our Stars).
  5. Hugh Jackman was bewildered at James Franco’s best actor win.
  6. James Franco also brought up Tommy Wiseau and subsequently blocked him from the microphone.
  7. Sterling K. Brown and Aziz Ansari made Golden Globe history. Brown is the first African-American male to win Best Actor in a TV Drama. Ansari is the first South Asian male to win Best Actor in a Comedy Series.
  8. Big Little Liars took the sweep. The show won in every category for which it was nominated. They collectively dedicated the win to victims of sexual harassment.
  9. Natalie Portman’s not-so-subtle dig. The actress made a point to note all-male nominees for Best Director.
  10. You knew it was coming. Oprah Winfrey’s chill-inducing speech. She was awarded with the Cecil B. Demille Lifetime Achievement Award, which she accepted with a brilliant speech.
