Our 7 Favorite Moments from the 2016 Golden Globe Awards
The 2016 awards season is officially underway and Hollywood’s biggest stars turned out on Sunday in Los Angeles for the 73rd annual Golden Globes.
Bold fashion dominated the red carpet outside, while British comedian Ricky Gervais prepared inside the storied Beverly Hilton for his return to Golden Globe hosting duties after a three-year hiatus. The show, which is often looked to as a gauge for predicting Academy Award wins, is also known for being a more convivial, laid-back affair where Tinseltown’s elite share a meal (and endless Moet) together.
From heart-tugging acceptance speeches to pure eye candy gold (ahem, Ryan and Brad), the Golden Globes had us tuned in and getting even more excited for all the fanfare to come this awards show season. Below, 7 of our favorite moments from the evening.
Love him or hate him, Ricky Gervais brought his singular brand of humor (as well as an endless glass of lectern beer) to the show after taking a few years off. Sunday night was his fourth time playing host and, as expected, no one was safe from his jabs.
Cute, Even When They're Fighting
"Cookies for Everyone"
Empire's leading star brandished actual cookies to her dining companions and colleagues after being called up to accept the Golden Globe for best actress in a drama TV series. In true Cookie Lyon form, she also demanded more stage time to properly give her thanks.
Is This Leo's Year?
Both Leonardo DiCaprio and The Revenant came out on top at the Globes, garnering best actor, best director, and best picture accolades. Will Leo finally get his long-awaited Oscar this year? Perhaps Sunday's win portends a favorable fate for the talented heartthrob.
