All The Moments You Might Have Missed From The 2024 Golden Globes

The 2024 Golden Globes, the year’s first major, televised awards ceremony – not to mention the first to take place after months of strikes and disruption across Hollywood – was always going to give us plenty to talk about. From the responses to first-time host Jo Koy’s opening monologue to Kylie and Timothée’s kiss and literally every single thing that Taylor Swift did, find all the moments you might have missed from the star-studded event, below.

Rosamund Pike’s protective veil went viral

Nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her delicious performance in Saltburn, Pike went full Pamela with a dramatic “protective veil” that provided both fashion and function. “I had an accident over Christmas actually,” she revealed on the red carpet. “A skiing accident. Not what you want when you’re coming to the Golden Globes.” Hats off.

Also looking chic while sporting an injury? The Last of Us’s Pedro Pascal, who had his arm in a sling.

There was a Suits reunion (sans Meghan)

Gina Torres, Sarah Rafferty, Gabriel Macht and Patrick J Adams from the cast of the legal drama – which became a surprise Netflix hit after landing on the platform last summer – were all poised to be presenting at the Globes, leading to a flurry of speculation that the Duchess of Sussex could also be in attendance. In the end, though, she wasn’t. The reason for her absence? “We don’t have her number,” Torres told Variety on the red carpet. “We just don’t, so… she’ll see. She’ll watch. She should be happy that we’re here.”

Charles Melton’s mum melted our hearts

Attending with her son, a Best Supporting Actor nominee for May December, Charles Melton’s mother was absolutely adorable.

Also making the Globes a family affair? Reese Witherspoon, who attended with her son, Deacon Reese Phillippe. “This is my first Golden Globes, and really my first awards show,” the 20-year-old said on the red carpet. As for his curfew? “I’m following her tonight,” he replied, gesturing at his mother. “She’s the party animal and I’m just going to try and keep up.”

Margot Robbie was super star Barbie, naturally

Almost six months on from the release of Barbie, has Margot Robbie even come close to running out of themed press tour looks? In a word: no.

Taylor Swift shut down the red carpet

Dua Lipa and Billie Eilish were both present and accounted for, but where was the most-talked-about woman in music? Lo and behold, just as the show was about to get underway, Swift hit the red carpet – and she did not disappoint. Later, during the ceremony, she was spotted chatting to Selena Gomez and cheering wildly for Emma Stone.

The response to Jo Koy’s monologue was, er, mixed

There were digs at Robert De Niro (“Your last performance has got to be your greatest performance ever. How’d you get her pregnant at 80?”), nods to Barry Keoghan’s, um, assets (“Where is your penis seated?”) and jokes at Taylor Swift’s expense (“The big difference between the Golden Globes and the NFL? On the Golden Globes, we have fewer camera shots of Taylor Swift.” Cue Taylor looking furious while sipping her champagne).

Twitter users were less than enthused.

Koy seemed to sense the apathy, adding, “I got this gig 10 days ago. You want a perfect monologue? I wrote some of these and they’re the ones you’re laughing at.”

Da’Vine Joy Randolph was a goddess

Accepting the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress for The Holdovers, the actor looked incredibly emotional. “Thank you to my family and friends for holding me up,” she said. “And to my character, Mary, you have changed my life. You have made me feel seen in so many ways that I never imagined. And I hope I helped you all find your inner Mary because there’s a little bit of her in all of us.”

Ali Wong made Golden Globes history

Becoming the first performer of Asian descent to have won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Limited Series for Beef, the actor seemed visibly moved. Then, her co-star, Steven Yeun, picked up a statuette too. “The story I usually tell of myself, to myself, is one of isolation and separate-ness, and then you come up here and have this moment and you can only just think about everyone else,” he said. “And that feels like the plot of Frozen.” Cue rapturous laughter. Later in the night, Beef was also named Best Limited Series.

It was a good night for the men (and women) of Succession

Matthew Macfadyen took home the Globe for Best Supporting Actor on Television, beating co-stars Alan Ruck and Alexander Skarsgård, while Kieran Culkin did the same in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series, Drama category, defeating both Brian Cox and Jeremy Strong. Macfadyen called his character a “human grease stain”, while Culkin said, “Suck it, Pedro!” His fellow nominee, Pedro Pascal, then pretended to weep.

Later on, Sarah Snook snagged the award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series, Drama, too. “I was kinda hoping I wouldn’t have to get up,” she joked. “Kieran, do you wanna take this instead?” As expected, Succession then won Best Drama.

Ayo Edebiri paid tribute to assistants

Both Jeremy Allen White and Ayo Edebiri took home awards, too. “I must have done something right to be in your company,” said the former of his co-stars, looking genuinely shocked. The latter looked even more emotional, saying, “I’m so very grateful for this. The Bear, that’s my family. All of my agents, managers, assistants! To the people who answer my emails, thank you.” Cue a shot of Taylor Swift nodding and clapping. Later on in the ceremony, The Bear was also named Best Comedy Series.

Oppenheimer triumphed

Christopher Nolan scooped Best Director while Cillian Murphy took the Globe for Best Actor in a Drama for Oppenheimer. “First question, do I have lipstick all over my nose?” the latter asked the audience, his nose bright red. “I was gonna leave it. I wanna thank Chris and Emma for having faith in me for 20 years.”

Emma Stone was as charming as ever

Picking up the Globe for Best Actress in a Comedy for Poor Things, the A-lister shouted out her co-stars and then said, “Oh my god, there’s only like 18 seconds left!” She took her time, though, giving us a sample of her Australian accent and speaking of the “unbelievable” joy of playing Bella Baxter. “I see this as a rom-com,” she said. “But, Bella falls in love with life itself.” Oh, and Jennifer Lawrence’s reaction to Stone’s name being called over her’s was everything.

Barbie got its moment

Billie Eilish and Finneas won the Globe for Original Song with “What Was I Made For”, making Greta Gerwig teary. “You guys scare the hell out of me – everyone in this room,” laughed Eilish. Then, the mega hit won the inaugural prize for Cinematic and Box Office Achievement. “We would like to dedicate this to every single person on the planet who dressed up and went to the greatest place on earth, the movie theatre,” said Margot Robbie when accepting the latter. “Thank you to Noah Baumbach for showing his inner Barbie girl,” gushed Gerwig, after which Robbie added, “Thank you Ryan Gosling for going full beach.” Iconic.

Kylie Jenner and Timothée Chalamet shared a kiss

Poor Things took home Best Comedy while Oppenheimer took home Best Drama

And thus, the stage has been set for an epic battle come the Oscars. Bring on 10 March.
