Last night’s Golden Globe Awards were epic for many reasons. (Like a show hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler wouldn’t be!) From Bill Clinton’s monologue to Jodie Foster’s coming out, here are a few of our fave moments.
+ Tina Fey & Amy Poehler Killed It!
Comedians Tina Fey and Amy Poehler killed it last night, proving once again that they are an unstoppable comedic duo, and breaking the stereotype that women can’t be as funny as men are.
+ Adele Won Best Original Song
New mum Adele won Best Original Song for her “Skyfall” theme…and Taylor Swift…well…we’ll let you be the judge of how she felt about that! But both ladies deserved awards for their contributions to society in 2012. Adele spoke out for World Water Day, and Swifty topped DoSomething.org’s list of most charitable celebrities.
+ Bill Clinton Made An Appearance
Bill Clinton’s intro to Best Drama nominee “Lincoln” was both entertaining and educational. He described the hard work it took for Abe Lincoln to abolish slavery all the while poking fun at his own Presidency. I just did the math and realized I’ve had a crush on Bill Clinton for almost 20 years now…
+ Jennifer Lawrence “Beat Meryl”
When “Silver Linings Playbook” star Jennifer Lawrence won the award for Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical, she stared at her trophy and gleefully blurted out, “I beat Meryl!” Now some people took that the wrong way, but the smart gal who graduated from high school two years early with a 3.9 GPA totally knew better. Turns out she was simply quoting one of Meryl’s classic films “First Wives Club.”
+ Jodie Foster Came Out
When Jodie Foster won the Cecil B. Demille Award for a lifetime of achievement, she used the moment to make an epic coming out…or rather a non-coming out speech. “There won’t be a big coming-out speech tonight, because I already did my coming out about a thousand years ago in the Stone Age, in those very quaint days, when a fragile young girl would open up to trusted friends and family and co-workers and then gradually, proudly to everyone who knew her to everyone she actually met,” she said.
Do you think there is too much pressure Hollywood stars — and everyone, really — to come out in a grand, public manner? Let us know in the comments section below!
