The 2017 Golden Globes were held on Sunday, January 8, during a live telecast on NBC and hosted for the first time by Jimmy Fallon, the host of “The Tonight Show” and onetime host of the Primetime Emmys in 2010. But was he the best part of the telecast? Click through our photo gallery above to find out what made our editors cheer (and jeer) and then have your say by voting in the poll below.
The night opened strong for Fallon with his spoof of “La La Land” featuring Globe nominees like Nicole Kidman, Amy Adams, Ryan Reynolds and Justin Timberlake. And though the rest of his hosting gig didn’t live up to that stand-out opener (read our review here), there were plenty of other memorable moments during the telecast.
“La La Land” swept the film awards, making history with seven victories out of seven nominations (see the complete list of winners). The only other film to take home multiple prizes was, unexpectedly, “Elle,” which won both of its bids: Best Film Drama Actress (Isabelle Huppert) and Best Foreign Language Film. Then there’s “Moonlight,” which came back at the very end of the night to score a big prize, Best Film Drama.
The biggest surprise on the TV side was “The Night Manager,” which was the most awarded program of the night, winning three acting prizes (but losing Best TV Movie/Limited Series to “The People v. O.J. Simpson”).
And there were memorable awards presentations by Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig, and memorable acceptance speeches by Meryl Streep, Viola Davis and Ryan Gosling, among many others (vote for the best acceptance speech here).
