As I do every year, I had to look up again who the Hollywood Foreign Press voters are, and basically, it’s journalists who report on the entertainment industry inside the United States for people outside of the United States. Knowing that sort of puts a lot of last night’s winners in perspective, doesn’t it? This is how journalists want the rest of the world to see us: As a country so obsessed with excess that we’re willing to look beyond the deeply problematic history of a director because of those great power anthems, and a country that believes white people can solve our troubling race problems without involving black people.

We are very simple people, aren’t we? Give us a big, heartwarming feel-good ending, and the land of Trump will ignore everything else.

There were a few bright spots (the lifetime achievement awards, Glenn Close and Oliva Colman’s wins, Christian Bale’s speech), but for the most part, last night’s Golden Globes were a sh*tshow, even more than usual. Anyway, here were some of the better Twitter reactions to the last night’s ceremony.

On the very bad monologue (with a very lovely coda from Sandra Oh):

Macauley Culkin on his brother’s appearance at the Golden Globes:

On the reaction to Bohemian Rhapsody winning for Best Picture:

On the other hand, LEAVE ELSIE FISHER ALONE. GOD. What is wrong with you people? She’s 15, for God’s sake.

On Jeff Bridges phenomenal, rambling, nonsense, amazing speech:

Out with the old, in with the Idris?


On Glenn Close’s reaction to her win:

Seriously, if you watch nothing else from the GG’s, watch her speech:

This is so lovely and awkward:

It’s really hard to say which was worse: The Green Book wins or the Bohemian Rhapsody wins.
