5 things you missed at the Golden Globes An evening of loving effusions and not

New year, new red carpets. As every January, Hollywood kicks off the cinema awards season, traditionally starting with the Golden Globes held last night at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles. The stars of both big and small screens from 2023 graced the red carpet, just three months after the challenging actor's strike. Oppenheimer, Christopher Nolan's film starring Cillian Murphy and Barbie, the adaptation with Margot Robbie directed by Greta Gerwig, stole the show, winning four and two awards respectively. Despite the dominance of these box office hits, other contenders, including Poor Things by Yorgos Lanthimos, Anatomy of a Fall by Justine Triet, and The Boy and the Heron by Hayao Miyazaki, also shined with their success. In television, the Golden Globes celebrated Succession, The Bear, and Beef. Let's recap the most entertaining and intriguing moments of the evening.

Here are 5 things you missed at the 2024 Golden Globes.

Cillian Murphy's lipstick nose

Accustomed to seeing him on the red carpet with a stoic demeanour, Cillian Murphy, the star of Oppenheimer, couldn't contain his excitement on the Golden Globes stage. After winning Best Actor in a Drama Film, Murphy was kissed by his wife, leaving a red mark on his nose. Attempting to wipe it off, he jokingly asked, holding the trophy, «First question: do I have lipstick on my nose? I was going to leave it.»

A failed monologue

Not all comedy brings laughter; not all jokes hit the mark. Reminiscent of the awkward moments at the 2023 Academy Awards, comedian Jo Koy, the host of this edition of the Golden Globes, failed to elicit the smiles he hoped for during his opening monologue. From the immediately viral reactions of Taylor Swift, Harrison Ford, and Selena Gomez to the boos from the audience after an unfortunate - or rather, sexist - joke about Barbie, there were numerous signs of Koy's speech errors. He "apologised" by blaming the monologue writers - a true masterstroke.

Timothee and Kylie's Kiss (and the Selena Gomez drama)

By now, anyone interested in pop culture is aware of the relationship between Kylie Jenner and Timothee Chalamet, which blossomed in spring and was confirmed last summer. Many rumours surround their romance - it's said their first date was at an art show in Santa Monica, and that theirs is just a PR move. However, after last night, many speculations were put to rest. Seated together at the Golden Globes guest table, Jenner and Chalamet were caught on camera exchanging what seemed like sweet words and sharing a kiss on the lips. In contrast to what Selena Gomez shared with her friend Taylor Swift about their relationship, discussed in hushed tones but deciphered by social media's expert lip readers. «I asked for a photo with him, and she (Kylie Jenner) said no.»

Lily Gladstone's victory

Aside from kisses and lipstick, last night's event included a historic victory. Lily Gladstone, awarded for her leading role in Killers of the Flower Moon directed by Martin Scorsese, is the first Native American to win a Golden Globe in Hollywood's history. Like the film, which tells the true story of the Osage Nation's murders, Gladstone's speech used the stage to speak about the significance of her culture in American history. «I love everyone in this room right now, thank you. I'm speechless. I spoke a bit of the Blackfeet language, the beautiful community that raised me, that encouraged me to move forward, to keep going. I dedicate this award to my mother, who, even though she's not Blackfeet, has tirelessly worked to bring our language into schools, and to a Blackfeet language teacher I had growing up. I'm so grateful to be able to speak a little bit of my language, which I don't speak well enough because in this industry, native actors used to speak their lines in English, and then sound technicians would dub them in the native language.»

Margot Robbie dresses up as Barbie, again

We thought the mega Barbie marketing campaign was over after the press tour, but Margot Robbie still has to step into the shoes of the iconic blonde toy. Last night, the actress nominated for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy presented herself in a custom-made gown by Giorgio Armani Privé, adorned with sequins and a fuchsia boa, a replica of the dress worn by Barbie for the doll's 50th anniversary in 1977. The Barbie is currently available on Amazon, WWD explained, but it doesn't include the jewelry worn by Robbie at the Golden Globes: thirty-carat diamond studs and a three-carat Mona Lisa ring, all worth $3 million.
