    2019 Golden Globe Awards


    The 2019 Golden Globe Awards aired Sunday night, January 6th, 2019, with many surprises, unexpected winners and its wildest moments.

    To start off, lets start with the trending topic as of right now which is the “Fiji Water Girl.”


    Kelleth Cuthbert, also known as the 2019 Golden Globe Awards’ “Fiji Water Girl,” is the top talk on social media and magazine outlets right now for “photo-bombing” many celebrities at the award show while on the red carpet.



    “Cuthbert, who usually works as a fashion model and commercial actress, said she wasn’t intentionally trying to steal the spotlight — but rather her modeling instincts took over. Of her big Golden Globes moment, Cuthbert explained that the photos simply came about by “looking at the camera at the right time.”

    On to the next topic, Grey’s Anatomy actress, Sandra Oh, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine actor, Andy Samberg, were both the hosts of the 76th annual award show this year and they both did great at hosting and many others saying that they both “fit” the Golden Globes perfectly.

    Awkward moment! Christian Bale picked up a Golden Globe Sunday night, while having a very unexpected twist in his speech that seemed to confuse many in the crowd and fans all over the world watching.

    “Thank you to Satan for giving me inspiration on how to play this role.”

    The Vice actor also thanked director, Adam McKay, for choosing him to play a person that is “absolutely charisma-free.”

    He also mentioned a diss towards Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell.

    “For all the competition, I will be cornering the market on charisma-free a**h***s,” Bale continued. “What do you think, Mitch McConnell next?” The crowd cheering at the joke.

    Gaga took home a Golden Globe award for her song, Shallow, featured in the motion picture, A Star Is Born, written and directed by Bradley Cooper.


    Bohemian Rhapsody actor, Rami Malek, won a Golden Globe for “Best Actor – Motion Picture – Drama.”

    He also had an awkward moment on stage with actress, Nicole Kidman.

    “… following his win for best actor and during the acceptance for his film “Bohemian Rhapsody,” tried to get Kidman’s attention to absolutely no avail. He first tried to speak to the 51-year-old star, but she simply didn’t notice him. He then placed a hand on the small of her back, but the commotion on stage as the cast of the film took the stage clearly distracted her beyond measure.” –

    Malek also thanked Queen, in his “Best Actor” speech.

    “Oh my god, I am beyond moved,” Malek said at the podium. “My heart is pounding out of my chest. This is a profound honor to be counted among such extraordinary actors, I am privileged. Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press and to everyone who worked so tirelessly on this film. I have to thank [producers] Graham King and Denis O’Sullivan, you’ve worked over a decade to make sure this story was told. Thank you to 20th Century Fox, you believed in us.” –

    Even with all the success on Sunday night, there were many awkward and funny moments, but what is an award show without them?

    “Emma Stone was heard shouting “I’m sorry!” after Sandra Oh called out Aloha for its whitewashing.”

    And yes, This really happened. Just watch below.

    Samberg even made a joke during his opening monologue.

    “Were there a bunch of old members of the actual Black Panther Party saying, ‘I can’t even get an audition?’ …Just kidding! They were all framed and murdered for wanting justice and equality, the world is and always has been a nightmare and it just seems worse now because of our phones,” said Samberg.

    You can see the reaction of Black Panther director, Ryan Coogler, confused as ever.


    Many took to Twitter addressing the joke made on Live TV, with some saying it wasn’t necessary to say and some in disbelief while others laughing at what Samberg had said.


    “Watching the Golden Globes every year is fun and exciting. I can’t wait to see what happens, drama or not, and see who wins what award.” – Kamar Alkhdour.

    “I love watching the Golden Globes!” – Mr. Farinelli, LHS Drama & Theatre Teacher.

    With all the excitement and drama happening on Sunday night, many memories were made and tons of iconic photos were taken, but all good things have to come to an end.

    Congrats to all the winners and nominees for the 2019 Golden Globe Awards.
