Check out our list of top moments from the Golden Globes awards ceremony, from the jazzy opening number to the most moving speeches. — Sharon Knolle
Opening Number a la La La Land
In the show's cold open, Jimmy Fallon became stuck in a traffic jam on the way to the Globes. Naturally, he got out of his car and started singing and dancing, aided by Nicole Kidman, Evan Rachel Wood, Sarah Paulson, and the kids from "Stranger Things." The movie's signature song, "City of Stars," became "Room Full of Stars," and instead of dancing off into night sky with Emma Stone, Fallon tangoed with — who else? — Justin Timberlake.
Fallon had to think fast when the Teleprompter glitched at the start of the show. Fortunately, the host — and the device — recovered quickly.
Ryan Gosling Tugs Our Heartstrings
The actor, who took home the award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy for La La Land, began his acceptance speech by joking that he'd been mistaken for Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds, who was nominated in the same category. By the end of his speech, he had us moved while graciously thanking partner Eva Mendes and dedicating his award to her late brother.
Meryl Streep Gives a Passionate Speech
The actress, who had nearly lost her voice, nevertheless gave a strong speech in which she pointed out the diversity in the house, with nominees born in Ethiopia, Kenya, and, in Ryan Gosling's case, Canada. She took time to touch on the political climate of the United States and finally ended by fondly remembering the late Carrie Fisher: "As my dear departed friend Princess Leia said to me, 'Take your broken heart, make it into art.'"
The Globes Bid Farewell to Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds
Fallon introduced a short but moving video tribute to the two stars who died just a day apart, showcasing scenes from Singin' in the Rain and Star Wars, as well as scenes featured in the new HBO documentary "Bright Lights." This was the only memorial that the Globes featured.
