21 Twitter Reactions To Everything That Went Down at the Golden Globes Last Night
Last night’s Golden Globes wasn’t your typical award show. It was a soapbox for Hollywood elites to call-out their industry for gender inequality, sexual assault, and silence in the face of injustice. It was a heartfelt and emotional event for which women showed solidarity by dressing in all black and crying at Oprah’s moving acceptance speech of the Cecil B. Demille Award. It was a heavy night.
But like any award show, it was not without its faults. From upsetting snubs for Call Me By Your Name, Dunkirk, and Get Out, to the drama of Get Out being categorized under comedy/musical, to Jessica Chastain mispronouncing Saoirse Ronan’s name, there were plenty of FMLs throughout the night. Here’s what Twitter had to say about it.
1. Nobody was expecting what the night would turn out to be.
Really burned out on politics. Think I’ll just relax and watch Golden Globes tonight.— Pat Sajak (@patsajak) January 7, 2018
2. We are living in a fever dream.
The year is 2018 and both Tommy Wiseau and Tonya Harding were featured during this year’s Golden Globes. Oh, also, a featured extra from Home Alone 2 is president now.— Parker Molloy (@ParkerMolloy) January 8, 2018
3. Even on the red carpet, before the ceremony began, things were heating up.

4. People were confused by the numerous snubs.
No awards for Call Me By Your Name, Get Out, or Dunkirk. I'll bet right now you don't see a repeat of that at the Academy Awards.— Mark Harris (@MarkHarrisNYC) January 8, 2018
5. Damn electoral college.
Get Out not winning anything but being highest grossing is no surprise. Critically well received but, whatever.— Akilah Hughes (@AkilahObviously) January 8, 2018
6. It's okay Jessica Chastain, no one knows how to pronounce that name.
Will my poor favourite darling irish actress Saoirse Ronan ever have her name pronounced correctly?— Amybeth (@AmybethMcnulty) January 8, 2018
Anyway.. SHE WON I LOVE HER SO PROUD.
7. A name, a verb, an adjective.
8. No one could follow her moving speech.
coming on stage after oprah gotta be like getting your diploma at graduation after the kid whose family brought a trumpet to commencement— Desus Nice (@desusnice) January 8, 2018
9. The ayes have it.
Can we all agree that .@Oprah deserves a planet named after her.— Josh Gad (@joshgad) January 8, 2018
10. But it appears we're too late. She's already got her own planet.
Oprah, finishing speech, smiles knowingly and fades into thin air.— Alexander William (@AlexAllTimeLow) January 8, 2018
Oprah sits cross-legged on a large, flat rock, many light-years away, watching twin suns set from atop a mountain on a distant planet.
11. "Forgive me, Oprah, for I have sinned."
oprah should sit directly in front of the stage at every awards show and every winner should be forced to ask her forgiveness before speaking— Matt Bellassai (@MattBellassai) January 8, 2018
12. And now everyone's bidding Oprah for president? Apparently all the experience it takes is television experience.

Golden Globes. Enjoying the drama of Barbara Streisand relinquishing her seat back to Oprah Winfrey. It was a moment.— Neil Patrick Harris (@ActuallyNPH) January 8, 2018
14. Oh and how could we forget to mention the moment Tommy Wiseau tried to speak during James Franco's acceptance.
I LOVED what Oprah said.— Zach Braff (@zachbraff) January 8, 2018
I’ll always wonder what Tommy was gonna say.
15. The moment that shocked everyone.
