As the Covid-19 pandemic rages on across the world, the glitzy awards have been forced to keep their normally unmissable event online only - with no audience, red carpet or famous hosts for the first time in 14 years.Over the years, the Golden Globes have been a highly anticipated date on the calendar of some of the world's biggest celebrities - with the famous faces from the world of film and TV often giving us plenty to talk about after the event.“We will be providing real-time updates on winners on the Golden Globes website and our social media.As we look towards a subdued digital soiree this Sunday, we take a look back at some of the most shocking Golden Globes moments from over the years...Advertisement Despite being widely shunned by stars and studios, the group will hand out its usual film and television awards, minus the Cecil B..” EARLIER: The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has revealed its plans for how the 79th Annual Golden Globe Awards will be announced on Sunday.
Renée Zellweger’s badly-timed bathroom break Renee Zellweger was nowhere to be seen when it was revealed she would be adding another award to her collection in 2001.Here’s the full coverage of our Golden Globes investigation and the aftermath The HFPA has come under pressure for not having any Black members as well as allegations of ethical and financial lapses raised in a Times investigation.(Photo by Frazer Harrison/Getty Images) Getty Images The HFPA said in a Thursday statement to Forbes that this year’s ceremony will be a “private event” and “will not be live streamed,” and winners will instead be announced on the Golden Globes’ official website and social media pages.As Hugh Grant announced the acclaimed thespian as the winner for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy for her role on Nurse Betty, the actor was almost forced to accept the award on his former co-star’s behalf.Just as the About a Boy star began an impromptu speech, Renne rushed to the stage to collect her award - admitting she had been fixing her makeup in the bathroom when her name was called.In recent days, as plans for this year’s Globes finally began to come into focus, some speculated that the HFPA’s multimillion-dollar contract with NBC could present an obstacle to a live-stream.“I had lipstick on my teeth,” the multiple award-winner explained when she finally made it to collect her latest award.The Golden Globes are scheduled to take place on Sunday at the Beverly Hilton.Emma Stone apologises for past whitewashing role The 2019 Golden Globes saw Emma Stone handle a joke at her expense with good grace.While the HFPA was determined to name Globe winners as it has for the last 78 years, the decision to forgo even a live-streamed event marks a stunning collapse for an awards show that had long been billed as “Hollywood’s Party of the Year” and that, prior to the pandemic, had regularly drawn some 18 million viewers.There will not be an audience, only select HFPA members and philanthropy grantees will be in the room.
Emma, 33, become the subject of controversy thanks to her role in the 2015 film Aloha - where the Caucasian actress played a part intended for a part-Hawaiian, part-Chinese woman.As Golden Globes host Sandra Oh made a quip about the whitewashing Emma and other actresses like Scarlet Johnson have partakes in, Emma could be heard yelling an apology from her seat..While talking about the 2018 hit movie Crazy Rich Asians, Sandra joked with the audience: “It is the first studio film with an Asian American lead since Ghost in the Shell and Aloha.” Viewers were surprised to hear Aloha star Emma shout from her seat “I’m sorry” rather than just squirm awkwardly.While cameras never caught Emma’s face at the time of yelling, the actress later confirmed it was in fact her voice that viewers heard shout sorry.“Over the past 25 years, the HFPA has donated $50 million to more than 70 entertainment-related charities, film restoration, scholarship programs and humanitarian efforts; incredibly impactful organizations, many of whom were hit hard over the last two years as a result of the pandemic,” the org said.
"It wasn't like I planned it, but I did say it," Emma admitted to the Los Angeles Times.Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s made men the joke Popular duo Tina Fey and Amy Poehler co-hosted the Gloden Globes betwee 2013-15 - returning to roast celebrities on stage in 2021.The comedy double act show no mercy when their heading things up - poking fun at the famous men sitting in their audience.One of their most shocking digs over the years came at the expense of George clooney in 2014 - whose movie Gravity had been nominated for Best Film at the prestigious award’s show.Discussing the space-themed movie, Tina and Amy cheekily retold the synopsis as “the story of how George Clooney would rather float away into space and die than spend one more minute with a woman his own age.NBC canceled the annual telecast this year after the HFPA came under fire for lack of diversity among its membership and unethical business practices.
” Luckily for the funny friends, George - and the rest of the audience - took the joke well and laughed along with the roasting.Tina even revealed in 2018 that the award-winner actor got his revenge - pulling "all these George Clooney pranks" on her and Amy shortly afterwards.Ricky Gervais being Ricky Gervais After targeting the multi-millionaire actors and stars within the audience during his debut stint as a Golden Globes host in 2010, it was surprising to see the After Life creator invited back not just once, but five more times in total over the years.Ricky, who presented the awards in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2016, and 2020, has never held back when heading up the evening - no matter how awkward things get.In 2020, Leonardo DiCaprio's tendency to date younger women was on Ricky's mind, as he quipped: "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood was nearly three hours long.
Leonardo DiCaprio attended the premiere, and by the end his date was too old for him." The sometimes-controversial star also addressed the revelations Kevin Hart had lost his hosting gig at The Oscars thanks to homophobic tweets from his past."Kevin Hart was fired from the Oscars for some offensive tweets," Ricky said at the 2020 Golden Globes."Luckily for me, the Hollywood Foreign Press can barely speak English and they've no idea what Twitter is, so I got offered this gig by fax." Michelle Williams talks women's rights Ricky Gervais may have told winners not to "lecture the public about anything" when accepting their awards in 2020, but Michelle Williams luckily ignored his advice to speak out about an important issue.
In the wake of abortion laws being changed and tightened, the former Dawson's Creek actress delivered a memorable speech when she collected her Globe for her role as Gwen Verdon in the miniseries Fosse/Verdon."I’m grateful for the acknowledgement of the choices I’ve made, and I’m also grateful to have lived at a moment in our society where choice exists," she told a star-studded audience."Because as women and as girls, things can happen to our bodies that are not our choice," she continued, urging women to "vote in your own self-interest.It’s what men have been doing for years, which is why the world looks so much like them." Jennifer Lopez's 'Globes' Co-presenter Jeremy Renner was one of the many who couldn't help but notice the Jennifer Lopez's plunging neckline at the 2015 Golden Globes - barely able to keep his eyes off her decolletage as they carried out their hosting duties.
As the pair joined each other on stage to announce the winner for Best Drama Miniseries, the Jenny From the Block singer offered to open the envelope containing the news everyone was waiting for."You want me to do it?" she asked."I’ve got the nails." Glancing at Jennifer's plunging neckline, Jeremy joked: "You’ve got the globes, too." After the internet accused The Hurt Locker actor of sexism, Jeremy was forced to remind people it was "joke" and not to take things "too serious".
Seth Meyer calls out male predators Seth Meyers kicked off the 75th annual Golden Globes by discussing the Me Too movement and Hollywood predators explicitly, in particularly jailed sex-offender Harvey Weinstein."It’s time to address the elephant not in the room: Harvey Weinstein," the American comedian said during the 2018 awards ceremony."But don’t worry, he’ll be back in 20 years when he becomes the first person ever booed during the 'In memoriam'." Kevin Spacey was also mentioned in Seth's monologue, who at the times had just been exposed after accusations of sexual misconduct came to light."They’re going to do another season of House of Cards.
Is Christopher Plummer available for that, too?" Seth asked - referencing the fact the actor had been replaced by Christopher in All the Money in the World."I hope he can do a Southern accent because Kevin Spacey sure couldn’t." Leonardo DiCaprio's 'fear' of Lady Gaga Who can forget the internet's reaction back in 2016, after catching Leonardo DiCaprio seemingly looking scared of Lady Gaga as she walked to collect her award.As the Poker Face squeezed past the actor on her way to collect her gong for Best Actress in a Limited Series, the Oscar winner seemed to flinch as she made her way past him.The exchange quickly became a viral meme - with thousands of tweets about the actor's side-eye causing his name to trend on online.
"Oh lord — that’s trending, huh?" Leonardo quipped when Entertainment Tonight showed him the infamous GIF from the Golden Globes.Clearing up there is no secret beef between the two stars, he added: "I just didn’t know what was passing me, that’s all!" Jodie Foster 'comes out' during acceptance speech After decades of rumours surrounding her sexuality, Jodie Foster used her acceptance speech as she collected the Cecil B DeMille lifetime achievement award in 2013 to seemingly 'come out' publicly."I already did my coming out about a thousand years ago, back in the stone age.In those very quaint days when a fragile young girl would open up to trusted friends and family, coworkers and then gradually, proudly, to everyone who knew her.To everyone she actually met," she explained on stage.
"But now, apparently I'm told, that every celebrity is expected to honour the details of their private life with a press conference, a fragrance and a primetime reality show.You guys might be surprised, but I am not Honey Boo Boo child." Eight years later, the Silence of the Lambs actress sealed another victory at the Golden Globes by kissing her wife Alexandra Hedison while collecting yet another honour.“I love my wife — thank you, Alex!” Jodie gushed via video link, cuddled up on the couch with Alexandra and their dog while virtually accepting her award.Do you have a story to sell?
