On January 6, celebs took to the purple carpet for the 76th annual Golden Globes awards. The primary present of the awards season—which has a (probably unwarranted) rep as an Oscars predictor—was, nicely, a bit boring, however it *did* have have some excessive factors: Beautiful robes! Celebs mingling—in typically hilarious methods, because of that well-known open bar! Timotheé Chalamet in a harness! However there have been additionally some issues we’d by no means ask for. (*Ahem* Inexperienced Guide.)

Under, we break down the most important hits and misses from the 2019 Golden Globes ceremony. CC: the Oscars. Take notes, Academy of Movement Image Arts and Sciences.

The Good

A (lastly) numerous purple carpet

With movies like Loopy Wealthy Asians, Roma and Black Panther nominated, and with Sandra Oh on the helm, we knew this yr’s Golden Globes was going to (fortunately) look totally different than another yr, and it didn’t disappoint.

The carpet was a melanin dreamland. Hiya, Gemma Chan, Michelle Yeoh and the *complete* forged of Black Panther!

However the purple carpet and nominations weren’t solely racially numerous. The forged of Pose, which incorporates 5 transgender ladies of color, served allll the lewks on the purple carpet. Indya Moore, Mj Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson, Hailie Sahar and Angelica Ross weren’t nominated for awards themselves, however as Cosmo famous, they confirmed up in help of their co-star, Billy Porter, who a) additionally slayed in a bejewelled cape and b) was nominated for greatest actor in a drama TV collection.

The range of this yr’s present undoubtedly didn’t go unnoticed, with Oh paying tribute to the “faces of change” within the crowd in her opening monologue. “In all honesty, I stated sure to the worry of being on this stage tonight as a result of I needed to be right here to look out into this viewers and witness this second of change,” she stated. “And I’m not fooling myself. I’m not fooling myself. Subsequent yr could possibly be totally different. It in all probability shall be. However proper now, this second is actual. Belief me, it’s actual. As a result of I see you. And I see you. All of those faces of change. And now so will everybody else.”

We simply have one quibble with Oh’s highly effective phrases: We will and will get used to any such slayage at awards exhibits and different main showbiz occasions, as a result of it’s lengthy overdue. So, yeah, we’re truly hoping subsequent yr’s pink carpet is extra of the identical.

Sandra Oh’s mother and father

Overlook each recipient of an precise award, as a result of host Sandra Oh’s mother and father gained the Golden Globes. In an evening that gave us some nice pairings, and a fair larger choice of potential Oscar hosts (we humbly submit Maya Rudolph and Amy Poehler, or Woman Gaga and Bradley Cooper), Oh’s mother and father have been our OTP. From participating in her opening monologue (albeit unknowingly), to furiously applauding her wins (of which there have been many; she took house the Greatest Actress statue for her position in Killing Eve and was the primary Asian lady ever to host the present), Mr and Mrs. Oh gave us all of the feels to get us by means of the subsequent few weeks of winter, and had us all slicing onions and operating to telephone our mother and father.

Oh, in true great-daughter type, gave her iconic rents the shoutout they deserved. “There are two individuals right here tonight that I’m so grateful that they’re right here. I’d wish to thank my mom and my father,” Oh stated throughout her acceptance speech, earlier than thanking them once more in Korean and bowing in the direction of them.

Regina King’s name for gender parity on set

In an evening that was surprisingly apolitical, King accepted her Golden Globe with a rallying cry. Taking residence the award for greatest supporting actress for her position in If Beale Road Might Speak, King—who seem like a straight up queen onstage—took the chance to problem Hollywood, vowing to make use of her soapbox to proceed the work of Time’s Up and promising that ladies will make up 50% of the employees for any of her tasks over the subsequent two years. “I simply need to say that I’m going to make use of my platform proper now to say within the subsequent two years every little thing that I produce I’m making a vow—and it’s going to be robust—to be sure that the whole lot that I produce—that’s 50% ladies,” King stated. “And I simply problem anybody on the market—anybody on the market who’s able of energy, not simply in our business, in all industries, I problem you to problem yourselves and stand with us in solidarity and do the identical.”

Emma Stone’s Aloha apology

In a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it trade, actress Emma Stone hilariously apologized for her position within the travesty of a film that was 2015’s Aloha. The movie, which additionally featured Bradley Cooper and Rachel McAdams, forged Stone as Air Pressure pilot Allison Ng, a personality who was meant to be one quarter Chinese language and one quarter Hawaiian descent, which Stone is clearly not.

Whereas praising Loopy Wealthy Asians, Oh referred to as out Hollywood for its continued whitewashing, saying of CRA, “It’s the first studio movie with an Asian-American lead since Ghost within the Shell and Aloha.” (Within the live-action remake of Japanese anime and manga basic Ghost within the Shell, Scarlett Johansson performed Main Motoko Kusangi. She’s additionally not Japanese.) In response, Stone yelled “I’m sorry!” from the viewers.

Stone later advised the Los Angeles Occasions, “It wasn’t like I deliberate it, however I did say it.”

Stone has commented on the controversial casting up to now. “I’ve develop into the butt of many jokes,” Stone stated in a 2015 interview with Australian website information.com.au. “I’ve discovered on a macro degree concerning the insane historical past of whitewashing in Hollywood and the way prevalent the issue really is. It’s ignited a dialog that’s essential.” However this time, she publicly apologized in a *very* Stone means, and the web liked (and accepted) it.

Elizabeth Moss’s help of the ACLU

The Handmaid’s Story actor might have been sporting what appeared like a easy LBD, nevertheless it was truly a RBD (actually huge deal). Moss used her massive night time to assist launch the Rad initiative in help of the American Civil Liberties Union. Per their Instagram account, Rad, which launched the day of the Globes, is an “Company for Advocacy,” that makes use of international platforms for philanthropy and consciousness.  Moss’s stylist—the notorious Karla Welch—posted to her Instagram the identical day, saying that all the designer’s Moss rocked on the pink carpet (which embrace huge names like Roger Vivier, Tamara Mellon and Dior) had donated to the ACLU in Moss’s identify.

We’re that firm.”

The “Fiji Water Woman”

Whereas watching a myriad of celebs make their entrance, followers have been fast to note a determine lurking behind any and all photographs, water in hand, smirk in place. “Fiji Water Woman,” in any other case often known as Canadian mannequin Kelleth Cuthbert, instantly went viral, serving seems and dwelling her greatest life.

The Dangerous

Ryan Seacrest on the pink carpet

Simply over a yr after he was accused of sexual misconduct by his former stylist—and shunned by some big-name celebs finally yr’s Golden Globe pink carpet—the E! host was again, this time sporting a Time’s Up bracelet. In his introduction of the bracelet with co-host Giuliana Rancic, Seacrest stated it was a celebration of the Time’s Up motion’s accomplishments during the last yr.

Final yr, once we heard he’d nonetheless be internet hosting E!’s purple carpet protection, FLARE hoped Seacrest would face robust questions from activists, however we have been sorely dissatisfied. Nearly all of celebs side-stepped him altogether, and people who did converse to him failed to deal with the allegations. Which is all to say that seeing Seacrest again on the carpet, getting chummy with celebs like Taraji P. Henson (who gave him probably the most *main* side-eye final yr) and speaking about his personal Time’s Up bracelet, appearing like nothing had occurred, felt a bit… off.

“Ryan Seacrest displaying off his #TimesUp bracelet. Assist,” tweeted Buzzfeed journalist Kate Arthur of the awks AF second.

Tech and leisure editor Rachel King commented on Hollywood’s goldfish reminiscence, tweeting, “Can’t consider what number of ladies are cozying up & guffawing alongside w/Ryan Seacrest this yr. Lower than a yr in the past on the Oscars, nobody would cease to speak to him. Can’t determine if their publicists are forcing them or they’re simply that thirsty. Brief reminiscences in Hollywood.”

Chrissy Metz *perhaps* referred to as Allison Brie a bitch?

This can be a conspiracy principle for the ages. The twittersphere was alight on Sunday night time with the hearsay that That is Us actress Chrissy Metz referred to as actress Allison Brie a bitch. Metz, who was being interviewed on the purple carpet, was allegedly caught on mic calling Brie “such a bitch” when requested if she knew her. Whereas the audio is *significantly* onerous to make out and we now have a tough time believing that KATE of all individuals would say *that,* viewers have been fast to leap to conclusions.

Brie for her half, was allegedly very confused.

Simply requested Alison Brie about this. She had not heard about Metz’s feedback and appeared very confused by the complete matter. “However why?,” she requested. “I do know her. I noticed her on the carpet and I advised her how lovely she appeared.” https://t.co/B7zmEB009s

— Nicole Sperling (@nicsperling) January 7, 2019

Metz instantly took to twitter to disclaim the claims, tweeting, “It’s terribly unlucky anybody would assume a lot much less run a narrative that was utterly fabricated! I am keen on Alison and would by no means say a nasty phrase about her, or anybody! I positive hope she is aware of my coronary heart.”

— Chrissy Metz (@ChrissyMetz) January 7, 2019

In response to UsWeekly, Metz and Brie have since cleared the air, because the That is Us starlet revealed to the outlet that they’d texted concerning the state of affairs, and Aj Gibson—the reporter who initially interviewed Metz on the carpet—informed Individuals he believes the actress referred to as Brie a “babe.”

Both method, we’re all for ladies speaking it out and supporting one another. Can we please simply agree to go away pitting ladies towards one another (in fabricated conditions or not) in 2018?

Time’s Up x 2

This yr’s present marked the one-year anniversary of the Time’s Up motion, when celebrities walked the carpet wearing black and arm-in-arm with activists like Tarana Burke. The previous 12 months have seen some main steps taken in the direction of addressing sexual assault throughout all industries. However except for these aforementioned bracelets, the motion didn’t have a lot of a presence at this yr’s ceremony. Celebs like Lena Waithe continued to rock black and Anne Hathaway carried a Time’s Up ribbon, however aside from King’s name for parity within the office, the motion—and by extension the still-rampant harassment it goals to eradicate—appeared out of thoughts. This was particularly galling contemplating the present occurred on the final night time of Lifetime’s Surviving R Kelly, the surprising documentary collection that includes harrowing interviews with ladies who’ve accused the singer of sexual assault.

After such a rallying cry final yr, sporting a bracelet—however failing to problem Woman Gaga, an advocate for sexual assault survivors, on her resistance to participating within the documentary on Kelly—appears virtually trivial.

Inexperienced E-book Director Peter Farrelly’s speech

For a film that cleaned up on the awards present, taking residence three Golden Globes: greatest supporting actor for Mahershala Ali, greatest screenplay and greatest movement image—musical or comedy, Inexperienced Guide is a movie steeped in controversy. The movie, which particulars the true story of African-American classical jazz pianist Don Shirley and his relationship together with his Italian-American bodyguard, Tony Vallelongo, has been criticized by Shirley’s household, who weren’t consulted within the creation of the movie, for misconstruing Shirley and Vallelongo’s relationship, erasing Shirley’s legacy and reminiscence and perpetuating the “magical negro” archetype. So in a means, it appears solely becoming that whereas accepting the award for greatest movie, director Peter Farrelly (who’s himself white) would dole out some significantly unasked for recommendation. “This story gave me hope and I needed to share that hope with you,” Farrelly stated across the two-minute mark. “This film is for everyone. If Don Shirley and Tony Vallelonga might discover widespread floor, all of us can. All we now have to do is speak and to not decide individuals by their variations, however to search for what we’ve in widespread.” *insert eye roll*

Whereas well-intentioned in principle, Farrelly’s feedback oversimplify an *extraordinarily* complicated situation—very similar to his movie, tbh. Racism continues to be alive and nicely in 2019. As we will see from the more and more disparaging feedback on immigrants from the chief of the free world, the rise of the alt-right and the continued brutality of Black women and men by the hands of the police—speaking shouldn’t be *all* we’ve got to do.

Bradley Cooper shaved his beard

After gracing us with the Bradley Cooper we by no means knew we would have liked: That voice! That scruffy mane! That beard! The Coops has promptly denied us of all earthly pleasure by kicking off awards season sans his main woman—the beard.

bradley cooper had actually two jobs:

1) rebuke the satanic power you launched with AMERICAN SNIPER
2) develop out the beard for award szn

AND HE’S FAILED MISERABLY pic.twitter.com/ywvFGBkbHN

— R O O N E Y (@zenonthesequal) January 7, 2019

Pay attention, Cooper is beautiful in any and all levels of facial hair, however critically, when you see the beard you’ll be able to’t return. It’s straight up not the identical. These glistening blue eyes? Meh, they’re type of uninteresting now. That heart-stopping smile? I feel my coronary heart will make it.

Bradley, there’s nonetheless loads of time to develop it again for the Oscars! Give the individuals what they need!

If Gaga loses the Globe I hope Bradley Cooper stands up and shouts “amongst these 100 individuals, at the least I consider in you!”
