2016 Golden Globe Awards Live Blog

Join me here tonight for the liveblog at 8PM. However, if you would like to discuss the preshow arrivals, you can do so in the comments. I won’t start “live blogging” until 8PM, when the real nitty gritty happens.

I posted my Globe predictions for the film categories over at my site. If you’d like a breakdown, head over here and see if your predictions line up with mine.

Ricky opens by addressing the audience as “pill popping, sexual deviant scum.” AND WE’RE OFF. LOL. Ricky Gervais makes a joke about NBC having zero nominations tonight. Really? That’s crazy. Ricky makes a joke about Caitlyn Jenner’s driving. He makes a Roman Polanski/Spotlight joke. He talks about The Martian being in the comedy category. He says it was funnier than Pixels. Ricky calls the award worthless. He jokes about shoving his own Golden Globes up his ass. He introduces the first two presenters as “non winners”.

Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture- Presented By: Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill
Jonah comes on stage pretending to be the bear from The Revenant. He has a little bear hat on. Jonah launches into an acceptance speech. He’s wearing a green ribbon for honey awareness. Jonah gets bleeped a lot. A LOT.

WINNER: Kate Winslet (Steve Jobs)
Wow. I didn’t think she’d win. The Globes really do love Kate Winslet. This is her fourth Golden Globe win. Kate says it was a great year for women. She thanks Michael Fassbender. She also thanks Aaron Sorkin and Danny Boyle, among others. No thanks for Jeff Daniels or Seth Rogen?

Supporting Actress in a TV Program- Presented By Dwayne Johnson and Jennifer Lopez
No schtick here. They get right into it.

WINNER: Maura Tierney (The Affair)
Her first Golden Globe. She’s now a Golden Globe winner. Congrats! I remember when she was just Jim Carrey’s wife in Liar Liar. She does not really have it together at the beginning, She eventually thanks all the creators, and cast. She singles out Dominic West.

Actress in a TV Comedy- Presented By Andy Samberg
Andy jokes that this is the final award of the night. He also jokes that Bill Cosby made a surprise appearance, and Patrick Stewart had hair this whole time.

WINNER: Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex Girlfriend)
Maybe people will finally watch her show. Maybe the CW won’t cancel it. She’s freaking out. Her pilot was for another network, and it got rejected by a ton of other networks, and finally The CW took a risk on it. She thanks a ton of people.

Best TV Comedy- Presented By Taraji P Henson and Terrence Howard
No shtick here either.

WINNER: Mozart In The Jungle
Wow. This is really a left field pick. I didn’t see that coming. Saffron Burrows is REALLY tall. She’s way taller than Gael Garcia Bernal. I had no idea.

Carol- Presented By Viola Davis
Viola Davis introduces Best Drama nominee Carol. She was in Todd Haynes’ Far From Heaven. I saw Carol, there’s some strong performances in there. I’m not sure its the Best Picture though. Really a beautifully shot film though.

Ricky introduces one of the guys from the Hollywood Foreign Press, who talks about the Globes and what it means.

Ricky jokes again about The Martian being a comedy, and how Ben Affleck and how Ben Affleck hasn’t been unfaithful to Matt Damon. “He’s also the only person who Ben Affleck hasn’t been unfaithful to. Please welcome, Matt Damon.”

The Martian -Presented by Matt Damon
Matt Damon presents his own film. This is how it should be. One of the actors from the film should present their own film.

Best Limited Series or TV Movie- Presented By Bryce Dallas Howard and Orlando Bloom
These two barely speak.

WINNER: Wolf Hall

Actor- Limited Series or TV Movie- Presented By Jamie Alexander and Amber Heard
Jamie Alexander needed to be bleeped. I think they had a teleprompter error.

WINNER: Oscar Issac (Show Me A Hero)
His first Golden Globe win. Really a great show, and a great performance. He deserved it.

Spy- Presented By Melissa McCarthy, Jason Statham, and Paul Feig
Jason Statham does a bit about how the film was actually about him.

Supporting Actor in a TV Show- Presented By Tom Ford and Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga is just honored to have participated this past year.

WINNER: Christian Slater (Mr Robot)
Nice to see Christian Slater get recognized for his acting finally. First win, first nomination. He thanks a ton of people. I’m surprised he doesn’t throw a big thanks to Rami Malek. Or USA.

Original Score- Presented By- Lily James and Jamie Foxx
What an ODD pairing. Jamie Foxx just takes up all the air from Lily James. Jamie tries to give the award to Straight Outta Compton.

WINNER: Ennio Morricone (The Hateful Eight)
Quentin Tarantino accepts on behalf of Morricone. He says Ennio Morricone is his favorite composer ever, and he’s never won an award before. Is that true? No. he’s won two golden globes previously, and an Honorary Oscar.

Jamie Foxx introduces his daughter as Miss Golden Globe.

TV Drama Actor- Presented By- America Ferrera and Eva Longoria
They make a joke about the actresses they’re always mistaken for.

WINNER: Jon Hamm (Mad Men)
His second win. He brings up Chumbawumba. LOL.

Joy and Trainwreck- Presented By Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer
They joke about celebrity nicknames. World peace. Helping children. Cars. Medicine. Hear what NBC bleeped here.

Actor in a Motion Picture Comedy- Presented By Amy Adams
No schtick.

WINNER: Matt Damon (The Martian)
HILARIOUS PERFORMANCE. No, seriously, he deserved to win. Great job. He jokes about how he’s made movies that people just didn’t go see. Hah. He gives props to Ridley Scott.

Animated Feature- Presented By- Kate Hudson and Kurt Russell
Interesting presenting duo.

WINNER: Inside Out
Pete Docter accepts the award.

The Big Short- Presented By Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt
Ryan jokes about how he thought he was presenting solo. It’s really funny actually.

Best Supporting Actor in a Movie- JK Simmons and Patricia Arquette
No jokes here.

WINNER: Sylvester Stallone (Creed)
Standing ovation from the entire audience. Big moment for Stallone. His first Golden Globe win since Rocky, I believe. Great speech. He thanks Rocky, for being the best friend he ever had.

Best Screenplay- Presented By Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg
They come out wearing 2016 glasses. They joke about the TV people getting shoved in the back. This goes on for too long though.

WINNER: Aaron Sorkin (Steve Jobs)
I’m surprised. The HFPA really enjoyed Steve Jobs a lot more than I thought they did. Aaron Sorkin didn’t even think he was going to win. Sorkin manages to thank Daniels and Rogen. Take notes Kate Winslet.

Actor TV Comedy- Presented By Melissa Benoist and Grant Gustin
GLEE! Aziz Ansari is reading a book. LOL.

WINNER: Gael Garcia Bernal (Mozart In The Jungle)
WOW. Someone beat Jeffrey Tambor. WOW. Did not see that coming, even with the series win.

Foreign Language Film- Presented By Helen Mirren and Gerard Butler
Gerard compliments Helen Mirren, she says he looks nice “for his age”. LOL.

WINNER: Son Of Saul
Helen Mirren says its the first time Hungary has won this award. I knew this would win. The announcer is having a rough time with the names. LOL.

Actress TV Limited Series or Movie- Presented By Kevin Hart and Ken Jeong
Ricky jokes about how Brangelina will want to adopt them.

WINNER: Lady Gaga (American Horror Story: Hotel)
Wow. Lady Gaga is STUNNED. She’s crying. She kisses Ryan Murphy before going on stage. She says she feels like Cher in Moonstruck. She thanks Ryan Murphy. She wanted to be an actress before she wanted to be a singer.

Best Original Song- Presented By Katy Perry
She’s honored to be presenting.

WINNER: Writing’s On The Wall (Spectre)
Sam Smith is accepting. See You Again deserved the win.

Ricky jokes about having to introduce Mel Gibson again.

Mad Max: Fury Road- Presented By Mel Gibson
Mel says that seeing Ricky reminds him to get a colonoscopy. Ricky says something that gets bleeped.

Best TV Drama- Presented By Olivia Wilde and John Krasinski
I expected more jokes from these two.

WINNER: Mr Robot

Cecil B Demille Award for Denzel Washington- Presented By Tom Hanks
Tom Hanks praises Denzel and all his work. Denzel brings his wife on stage with him, and his children. That’s a nice touch. His eldest is following in dad’s footsteps, starring in TV’s Ballers. Denzel is a tremendous actor, and he deserves a lifetime achievement award, though this seems really soon. He’s actually 61. He didn’t bring his glasses, so his speech is really choppy, but who cares.

Spotlight- Presented By Chris Evans
OK, I KNOW that Mark Ruffalo is in the audience at least. Why on earth is Chris Evans announcing this?

Best Director -Presented By Morgan Freeman
Morgan Freeman hasn’t worked for any of these directors yet? Wow. I’m surprised he hasn’t worked with Ridley Scott at least yet.

WINNER: Alejandro Innaritu (The Revenant)
Wow. He upset Ridley Scott. That just happened. Does this mean The Revenant will beat Spotlight for picture? He thanks a bunch of people, and finally Leonardo DiCaprio. He says something that gets bleeped. Lots of bleeping tonight.

Actress in a TV Drama- Presented By Sophia Bush and Kate Bosworth

WINNER: Taraji P Henson (Empire)
Viola gets the Emmy, but Taraji gets the Golden Globe. Fair trade? LOL. It’s Taraji’s first win. She makes a joke at the “please wrap” comment. She says she’s been waiting 20 years for this, they can wait. LOL. Best speech of the night? Possibly. She does a good job of thanking all the right people.

Cookies for EVERYONE!

Taraji’s acceptance speech

Actress in a Comedy/Movie- Presented By Michael Keaton
No jokes here.

WINNER: Jennifer Lawrence (Joy)
I thought they’d give it to Amy Schumer, and embrace the new talent like they have in other categories tonight. I was wrong. She thanks David O’Russell first. She wants to be buried next to him. LOL. He’s found his muse.

Room- Presented By Maggie Gyllenhaal
Brie Larson should have presented this. Or Jacob Tremblay. I hope Brie Larson wins.

The Revenant- Presented By Tobey Maguire

Best Motion Picture Comedy- Presented By Jim Carrey
Two time Golden Globe winner Jim Carrey. He jokes about truly needing to be three time Golden Globe winner Jim Carrey. It’s a good bit.

WINNER: The Martian
Ridley Scott accepts. At least he gets to accept something tonight. He’s a little rambling. He thanks the entire cast. He ignores the playoff.

Best Actress in a Drama- Presented By Eddie Redmayne
WINNER: Brie Larson (Room)
So glad she won. She thanks everyone, and says if she forgot anyone, she’ll write them a thank you card.

Best Actor in a Drama- Presented By Julianne Moore
WINNER: Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant)
I’m not surprised he won. I thought maybe Redmayne, but there’s so much push for DiCaprio this year. He gets a very long standing ovation. He thanks Alejandro Innaritu. He thanks Tom Hardy. It’s funny all the love that The Revenant is getting, yet Tom Hardy isn’t getting nominations. DiCaprio wants to protect land from development.

Best Drama- Presented By Harrison Ford
WINNER: The Revenant
The Revenant is having a great week. Great opening weekend box office, and four Golden Globe wins tonight, in major categories.

And that’s it. Shalom!

Hopefully, I’ll be back for the Oscars. I hope you enjoyed the live blog tonight. Did you guess the winners?
