There’s no question that the ladies owned the Globes last night. Emma Stone won for LaLaLand, Tracee Ellis Ross was the first black woman to win a Golden Globe since 1983, and Meryl Streep brought us to our damn knees. Let’s watch them slay, shall we?!?!
For starters, the speech every human with a heart is talking about. Meryl took the mic and blew up the damn room with her classy burns on Trump and gut-punchingly accurate summary of where the world is at right now. It’s long and it’s powerful and it’s the speech we needed. Also, good job not trying to play her off before she was done, because you do NOT roll the music on Meryl.
Next up TRACEE YAAAAAS!!!! The veteran comedian won a Globie for her hilarious performance in Blackish (which btw is so funny and so charming and you should really be watching it). She may be funny as hell, but honestly the tear fest continued when she dedicated her win to ‘women, women of color and colorful people’. Thank you, Ms. Ross.
Then there was Emma Stone’s adorable speech where she spent about half of it thanking her mom. Her mom!! We’re dead.
But if there’s anything that can bring us back to life, it’s the magical chemistry between Kristen Wiig and Steve Carell. Honestly their presenter banter was the funniest minute and a half of the whole show. Can we please have them back as hosts next year? Plz???
