The 76th edition of Golden Globes Awards was held in Beverly Hills on Monday morning. After the #MeToo movement and labelling the red carpet with black dresses in 2018, this year it was an amalgamation of almost everything from comedy, nostalgia, political satire to powerful speeches by leading ladies.

The host of the night actor Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh stole the show with their opening line that declared them as “the only two people left in Hollywood who haven’t gotten in trouble for saying something offensive.”

There were many unexpected moments like Glenn Close taking the Golden Globe home for the category of ‘Best Actress’ beating Lady Gaga. Glenn thanked everyone for her third Golden Globe win with her rousing speech. She went – “Women, we are nurturer, that’s what expected of us, we have our children, we have our husbands if we are lucky enough but we have to find personal fulfilment. We have to follow our dreams. We have to say ‘I can do it’ and ‘I should be allowed to do it.’”

Sandra Oh became the first Asian-American to win a Golden Globe for ‘Killing Eve’. This year the Golden Globes also saw the rise of trolls in twitter. ‘#FijiWaterWoman’ became the talking point. A girl in a blue gown carrying water bottles, who bombed nearly 12 photos, rocked every twitter page.
