Ah, the Golden Globes.
There’s nothing quite like that night in January when the worlds of film and TV collide under one roof, a magical place with the champagne flows freely and literally anything can happen. And we do mean anything.
This year, for instance, will certainly be a—yes—unprecedented one. Amid criticism of the Hollywood Foreign Press and surging coronavirus cases, the ceremony will not be televised nor will there be an audience or red carpet. So, for the first time in the annual party’s 75-plus year history, there won’t be any winners surprising us with a delightfully drunken acceptance speech or a show stopping red carpet arrival that leaves our jaws on the floor.
Alas, it’s worth taking a look back at all the craziness that’s come our way. From missing winners to drunk presenters, confusing speeches to dips in the pool, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s annual party has been the epicenter for one wild moment after the next.
