14 highlights you missed from last night's Golden Globes

Everything you might have missed.

Seriously. If Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird took home the award for best comedy/musical motion picture and Saoirse Ronan received the award for best actress in a comedy/musical (her costar Laurie Metcalf was also nominated for best actress in a supporting role, but unfortunately didn’t win), surely Gerwig should have received a nomination for writing and directing the entire film.

2. Men at the ceremony didn’t engage with the theme of the night.

3. Laura Dern’s speech impressed viewers.

4. Oprah highlighted how many women face sexual abuse and assault daily, but can’t do anything about it because they’re not millionaires.

I want tonight to express my gratitude to all the women who have endured years of abuse and assault because they, like my mother, had children to feed and bills to pay. They are the women whose names we will never know. They are domestic workers and farm workers. They are working in factories and they work in restaurants and they’re in academia and engineering and medicine and science.

5. Much to everybody’s confusion, 101-year-old Kirk Douglas presented an award.

Kirk Douglas. The man who was accused of raping Natalie Wood when she was 16 years old.

6. Saoirse Ronan called her mam on Facetime as she collected her award.

7. Tommy Wiseau joined James Franco on stage.

Unfortunately, James didn’t allow Tommy to talk. Raging. Would have loved to see what he had to say. There’s always the Oscars.

On the red carpet, Tommy was plugging The Room.

Alyssa Milano also dropped some statistics on Twitter.

Elizabeth Moss took home an award for her performance in the series as Offred. The creator of the series, Bruce Miller said “To all the people in the world who stopped The Handmaid’s Tale from coming real: keep doing that.”

11. Justin Timberlake was called out for wearing black, despite being in Woody Allen’s new movie.

The singer shared a photo of himself and wife Jessica Biel getting ready and hashtagged ‘Time’s Up’ and ‘Why We Wear Black’.

It was not long until people called out the hypocrisy.

12. Rose McGowan continued to slam the all black dress code.

Last night actress Asia Argento tweeted Rose saying “No one should forget that you were the first one who broke the silence. Anyone who tries to diminish your work is a troll and an enemy of the movement. You gave me the courage to speak out. I am on your side until I die.”

Rose responded that she had no time for all of this ‘Hollywood fakery’.

Corey Feldman chimed in and pointed out the work he did, saying that it was interesting that “Hollywood is taking a stand in unity” but he had not been invited. Asia, who made an accusation against Harvey Weinstein, told the actor “Don’t worry, I wasn’t invited either.”

13. Everybody’s loving Call Me By Your Name actor Timothée Chalamet’s reaction to realising he was sitting beside Tonya Harding (subject of Margot Robbie’s new movie I, Tonya).

14. Emma Watson and Robert Pattinson had a mini Harry Potter reunion as they presented an award together.
