The 77th Golden Globes were...a tad unseasoned.
Our very own Safaree stunt double Jay Connor joined me on the red carpet and we immediately noticed something: The carpet was as white as the total number nominees. So, we definitely chilled.
Now as for the telecast?
DID Y’ALL SEE BEYONCÉ JUST TELEPORT INTO THE GOLDEN GLOBES AUDIENCE BECAUSE SHE DEFINITELY SKIPPED THE CARPET?
Apparently, she and Jay arrived an hour late with what looks to be a Julius stand-in in tow carrying their Moët bottles.
OK, OK, let’s get to these black-ass winners...or winner.
Ramy Youssef represented for Egypt scooping the statuette for Best Performance By An Actor In A Television Series - Musical or Comedy for Ramy. As for how Youssef feels about hearing his name amongst heavyweights? “I’m just happy they pronounced it right,” he quipped backstage. Hey, I—a person named Tonja Stidhum—can relate.
Also, as far as the mainstream awards ceremonies go, the Golden Globes seems to be the most fun to attend, as there’s an open bar and Moët shenanigans right at the table. But, even sober Tiffany Haddish stood out amongst the tipsy, yet-seemingly bored crowd, yelling “Preach!” during Michelle Williams’ (no, not that one) poignant speech about women’s rights.
Congrats to the winners!
