The much-anticipated 74th Golden Globe Awards ceremony kept viewers glued to their seats with the only sure thing being to expect the utterly unexpected. Let’s recap a few of the greatest moments at this year’s event. 


Ryan Gosling’s Sentimental Golden Globes Speech
As if Ryan Gosling isn’t already one of the most dashing and charming actors of his generation, in his candid Golden Globe acceptance speech he cleared his throat, made a quick joke about being mistaken for Ryan Reynolds and then sincerely thanked his wife, Eva Mendes, for taking care of everything while he worked on La La land

While I was singing and dancing and playing piano and having one of the best experiences I have ever had on a film, my lady was raising our daughter, pregnant with our second, and trying to help her brother fight his battle with cancer. If she hadn’t have taken all that on so that I could have this experience, there would surely be someone else up here other than me today. So sweetheart, thank you.

Gosling spoke with humbling honesty, following up with a dedication to the late brother of Eva Mendes


Sofia Vergara's "Anal" Joke

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has an anal tradition. Sorry — I didn't mean 'anal.' They have an anus tradition … They have a tradition that they do every year of choosing a second generation performer to assist in the presentation of the award.

Sofia Vergara sparkled as she effortlessly used her broken English to evoke humour. A beautiful celebrity that can laugh at herself is always a star in our books. 

Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig Have Perfect Comedic Chemistry 
The vocal stars of Despicable Me, Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig, took to the stage while presenting the award for Best Animated Film. They quickly left the celebrity-studded audience in awkward hysterics and applause as they recounted memories linked to the first animations they ever saw, including a divorce revelation moments after seeing Anastasia, and watching Bambi after the euthanising of three beloved family dogs.


Ryan Reynolds 'Proper Tongue' Kiss with Andrew Garfield
Ryan Reynolds may not have gained a Golden Globe Award for Best Performance; however, he certainly stole the show. As Ryan Gosling made his way to the stage seconds after being announced the winner, jaws dropped to see Ryan Reynolds and Andrew Garfield sitting at their table locking lips for what seemed like a brief eternity. The off-screen chemistry came as a shock to everyone except the two sharing in this unforgettable “bromantic” moment.

Golden Globes' Tribute to Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds
In the wake of their recent deaths, a tribute to Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher was played in old Hollywood fashion on the big screen. The two were commemorated with film clips and candid photos from their iconic lives. 


This year’s Golden Globe event certainly didn’t disappoint. It gave fans plenty of laughs, second looks, and memes to be entertained with for weeks to come. Last but not least, Ryan Gosling sums up the excitement of every Golden Globe winner with his confession backstage.
