A few unexpected things happened at the Golden Globes last night.
Some involved booze; others involved awkward hugs and a highly publicized pipe burst that had all of Hollywood “pee-ew”-ing on the red carpet.
All of these incidents — whether embarrassing or awesome — had us talking non-stop about the 2014 show.
Sofia Vergara Rules the Dance Floor at Golden Globes After Party
So after we picked our jaws up off the floor (and stopped giggling like school girls), we got to thinking and compiled this year’s heroes and zeroes. (Duh — of course Aaron Paul’s Breaking Bad speech made the cut.)
Whenever a female celebrity stops to talk to an E! host on the red carpet, they’re asked to flash their digits for E!’s mani cam. Most of the time, the stars happily oblige, but the Mad Men actress had a surprise in store after she paraded her fingers around the booth — she flipped the bird! “There’s something I wanted to do last time,” she told Giuliana Rancic, “but I’m not going to do it.” Giuliana urged the brunette to go on with it, and that she did! She upped the “bad ass” factor later on during her acceptance speech for the best actress award for miniseries or TV movie for Top of the Lake. She mouthed the words, “Holy sh*t,” which were censored. Who knew Peggy Olson had it in her?
When Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick introduced their daughter, Sosie, on stage as this year’s Miss Golden Globe, they were interrupted by Tina Fey. In the name of gender equality, the host proceeded to introduce her “adult son from a previous relationship,” Randy as Mister Golden Globe. Enter Randy, played by co-host Amy Poehler, who wasn’t very happy about sharing the spotlight with 21-year-old Sosie. Aside from the hilarious bit, the young woman did a terrific job and looked stunning in a Rhea Costa dress.
With a martini in one hand and a pair of Louboutins in the other, the 54-year-old Saving Mr. Banks nominee had the room cracking up as she presented the award for Best Screenplay. “I present the nominees, well, not me the Voice of God, for Best Screenplay,” she slurred — and then sipped. Realizing she didn’t have her envelope, Sosie appeared to hand it to her. Emma threw her heels behind her and handed off her drink, which had us screaming “NOOOOOO!” because this woman and her alcohol is something we can really get behind.
Breaking Bad might be over, but our beloved Aaron managed to give us one more “Yeah, b*tch!” (his character Jesse Pinkman’s famous phrase) when he and the rest of the cast picked up the Globe for Best TV Drama. To sum it up in four words: It was awesome, b*tch.
Golden Globes' 11 Golden Couples
After uttering “alright, alright, alright” – the most Matthew McConaughey thing to say ever — at the beginning of his acceptance speech for Best Actor in a Drama, Matt went on to thank everyone in his life who helped him get to where he is today. When speaking of his beloved wife, Camila Alves, he admitted she was the force behind taking a chance on the role. Again, what he said to her was the most Matthew McConaughey thing to say…ever.
Presenting U2 with the Best Original Song award, Diddy went in to give Bono a man squeeze – and possibly a kiss – and, well, Bono wasn’t havin’ it. OK. We can’t talk about it without getting embarrassed for the Dids. Seriously cringe worthy. Click play if you must!
Jacqueline Bisset’s rambling speech for Best Supporting Actress in a TV Series, Miniseries or TV Movie is the definition of a train wreck. We almost had to turn away watching the 69-year-old attempt to form words. Oh, and she managed to curse on national television.
Battle of the Beards at the Golden Globes: Leonardo DiCaprio, Jared Leto and More
Don’t worry, celebs, it wasn’t fecal matter after all! A pipe burst exploded right on the red carpet, just moments before the stars began arriving on Sunday night. It turns out the pipe was part of an old sprinkler system that hadn’t been used in years. The 150 gallons of old water smelled really bad, which caused people to think it was sewage leaking all over the place. Talk about a crappy situation.
“I’d wear a plastic bag if it were designed by him,” Hayden Panettiere told E!’s Giuliana Rancic, before saying Ford “begged” her to wear one of his dresses to the Globes. Turns out the 24-year-old actress is a bit of a fibber! Fashion journalist Jim Shi said Ford confirmed to him that he only dressed Naomi Watts – and the nominated Nashville star bought her dress at RETAIL. Major, major fashion no-no, Hayden.
