The Golden Globes can always be counted upon to deliver plenty of big, crazy, and/or unforgettable moments every year, and 2018 was no exception. Late night host Seth Meyers was hosting for the first time (and didn't waste any time in dropping a vicious Harvey Weinstein joke), and the stakes were high at the one major awards show that tackles movies and TV alike. There were definitely highs and lows in the three-hour broadcast. Read on for the very biggest moments from the entire evening!
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Won Big
One of the earliest categories of the night to be settled was Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy, and there were were women representing some of the most talked-about comedies from 2017, including Alison Brie from GLOW and Issa Rae from Insecure. It came as the best kind of major surprise when the Golden Globe went to none other than Rachel Brosnahan for her work on the new Amazon series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Then, later in the evening, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel took the top prize for Best TV Series, Musical or Comedy. All things considered, this was a marvelous night for the Mrs. Maisel team.
Jennifer Aniston Pulled Carol Burnett's Ear
Jennifer Aniston strolled onto the stage at the 2018 Golden Globes alongside Carol Burnett herself, and Aniston was clearly beside herself at getting to present with such a comedy legend. Carol Burnett got some laughs when she joked about Aniston returning to TV as part of the Will and Grace revival, but Aniston got the big moment when she asked if she could tug on Burnett's ear, just as Burnett always did before the end of each episode of The Carol Burnett Show. Carol Burnett decided to allow this "kinky" move to happen, and it was pretty great.
Frances McDormand Shooed A Cameraman
Frances McDormand landed a Golden Globe nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Drama for her work in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, but her first big moment of the evening came early in the night when her co-star Sam Rockwell won the prize for Best Performance by a Supporting Actor. Rockwell was thrilled to have won and was delivering a heartfelt speech, but McDormand wasn't too happy when a cameraman got in her way of watching. So, she shooed the cameraman out of the way, and it was awesome. Who hasn't wanted to do that at some point?
Roseanne And John Goodman Reunited
Classic sitcom Roseanne is on its way back to the airwaves for a revival, and the 2018 Golden Globes gave viewers a little taste of what it will be like when the actors return to their roles. Roseanne Barr and John Goodman hit the stage to present the award for Best TV Series - Drama, and their pre-announcement banter proved that they have as much of a spark nowadays as they did back during the original run of the series. We already want more.
Big Little Lies Continued To Dominate
Back in 2017, HBO's not-so-limited series Big Little Lies took the Emmys by storm, winning a grand total of eight in a year of stiff competition. A major question was whether or not the show could continue to nab wins in major categories at the Golden Globes, and we now have our answer. Big Little Lies won for Best Limited Series, Nicole Kidman won Best Actress in a Limited Series, Laura Dern won Best Supporting Actress in a Limited Series, and Alexander Skarsgård won for Best Supporting Actor. The show's only losses came because Reese Witherspoon and Shailene Woodley were in the same category as Nicole Kidman and Laura Dern, respectively.
Oprah Delivered An Unforgettable Speech
The Cecil B. DeMille Award for 2018 went to none other than Oprah Winfrey, and the entire night was building up to her acceptance speech. In the speech, she tackled topics ranging from racism to sexism to the importance of the free press with all the class and poise many of us have come to expect from Oprah. The standing ovation she received from the audience at the Golden Globes, the social media enthusiasm for her comments, and the content of her message guarantee that her speech will be the one moment that everybody remembers from the 2018 Golden Globes.
