Opening Monologue:

SAM ECKMANN: Sandra Oh roasting Lady Gaga’s “it only takes one person to believe in you” viral video is the best thing to happen all Awards season

Best TV Movie/Limited Series Actress
presented by: Ben Stiller and Jamie Lee Curtis

Patricia Arquette (“Escape at Dannemora”)

AMANDA SPEARS: It’s so tacky to have the director of her project present the award. I knew the rest of the nominees were doomed.

SUSAN WLOSZCZYNA: OK. I picked Amy but glad Arquette got it.

MARCUS JAMES DIXON: Patricia beating Amy is an example of the best actress actually WINNING for once. Such a rarity for a Hollywood awards show!

SUSAN WLOSZCZYNA: Willem Dafoe is best free flu-shot sport.

Presentation of Best Film Comedy Nominee: “Crazy Rich Asians”
presented by: Lucy Liu

ZACH LAWS: Why isn’t the cast from “Crazy Rich Asians” presenting the clip the way the stars of “Black Panther,” “BlacKkKlansman,” and “The Favourite” did. Consistency, please!

Presentation of Carol Burnett Award to Carol Burnett by: Steve Carrell 

MARCUS JAMES DIXON: Next year’s second annual Carol Burnett award NEEDS to go to Betty White. No question. Can we start the petition now?

SUSAN WLOSZCZYNA: YES! The curtains!!!Carol is teary-eyed. So lovely and real – wish she was the host.

AMANDA SPEARS: Jeff (Bridges) you’ve got a tough act to follow.

SUSAN WLOSZCZYNA: Of course, Shallow. Bradley is such a gent helping Gaga up the stairs.

ROB LICURIA: Tom O’Neil said it best – tonight will be the night Lady Gaga is crowned Queen of the Golden Globes. Her song win was just the entree to what I expect will be her big Best Actress win later tonight.

AMANDA SPEARS: Daenerys in Winterfell!! Was the HBO the commercial the early highlight? Maybe!

Best TV Drama Actress
presented by: Kristen Bell and Meghan Mullaly

Sandra Oh (“Killing Eve”)

Best Film Comedy/Musical Actor

Christian Bale (“Vice”)

ZACH LAWS: Christian Bale thanking Satan for inspiration on how to play Dick Cheney: priceless.

SAM ECKMANN: Fitting that for a divisive film like Vice, Bale gives a divisive speech thanking Satan. Does this boost or tank his Oscar chances?

SUSAN WLOSZCZYNA: Yep, Christian Bale. What a charmer. Like how he defines his role as Dick Cheney as a man who is ”charisma-free and reviled.” OOHHH! A Mitch McConnell jab.  Leave to a Welsh man to be the one to make a statement tonight on the state of American politics.

SUSAN WLOSZCZYNA: Zorro and his lady love, Catherine Zeta-Jones, together again.

Darren Criss (“Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story”)

Presentation of Cecil B. DeMille Award to Jeff Bridges
presented by: Chris Pine

AMANDA SPEARS: No disrespect to Chris Pine but he’s the best they could get for Jeff Bridges??

SUSAN: Sam Elliott might not be nominated for “A Star Is Born,” but his voice is in the house as he salutes his buddy, the Dude.

ZACH LAWS: Jeff Bridges thanking his directors by name one at a time… the Dude abides.

MARCUS JAMES DIXON: What is Jeff Bridges rambling on about? Isn’t he supposed to be bashing Pres. Trump like the past two Cecil B. DeMille winners, Meryl Streep and Oprah Winfrey?

SAM ECKMANN: Only Jeff Bridges could mention the man behind the geodesic dome in an acceptance speech and somehow make it work. “We’re alive man.” Cheers to The Dude.

Best Director

Alfonso Cuaron (“Roma”)

Presentation of Best Film Drama Nominee: “A Star is Born”

Rachel Brosnahan (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”)

Best Comedy Series

“The Kominsky Method”

AMANDA SPEARS: DO you think everyone in the room hates Netflix? Or are they thinking I need my next project to be distributed by Netflix?

ZACH LAWS: Chuck Lorre finally gets some awards recognition. It’s about time.

DAVID BUCHANAN: While I’m genuinely glad for both the Michael Douglas and Kominsky Method wins, Alan Arkin is the true standout of the series.

ROB LICURIA: Is if just me or had the energy in the room plummeted? There’s little excitement as we trudge our way to the final awards. The show needs something wild, funny or shocking. Stat!

Presentation of Best Film Comedy Nominee: “Mary Poppins Returns”
presented by: Emily Blunt and Dick Van Dyke

TONY RUIZ: Dick van Dyke is the only thing necessary to make everything better.

Best TV Movie/Limited Series

“Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story”

AMANDA SPEARS: Bravo to Ryan Murphy for allowing one of his fellow producers a chance at the mic.

SAM ECKMANN: I’m sure some wonderful things were said in the Gianni Versace acceptance speech. But I was too distracted by Cody Fern serving us a kickass all-black genderqueer outfit from his American Horror Story: Apocalypse wardrobe. And next to him human angel Judith Light looking like an actual angel in stunning white suit. The Globe for best dressed cast goes to…

presented by: Janelle Monae

Presentation of Best Film Drama Nominee: “Bohemian Rhapsody”
presented by: Mike Myers

Best Film Comedy/Musical

“Green Book”

AMANDA SPEARS: Does anyone else realize we now live in a world where a Farrelly is a multi-award winner? A couple of years ago this would’ve seemed unlikely.

ROB LICURIA: Peter Farrelly, you just killed it with that speech. “Green Book” now has a new awards season narrative – bringing people together in this divided time. Smart!

MARCUS JAMES DIXON: The Golden Globes TV winners were a nice mix of Emmy repeats and brand new champs. Overall I’m happy with all of these picks! Onto next year.

Best Film Drama Actress
presented by: Gary Oldman

Glenn Close (“The Wife”)

AMANDA SPEARS: They saved a surprise for the end! Brava to the HFPA for not going for the biggest star!

ZACH LAWS: Looks like those 99 people all voted for Glenn Close.

DAVID BUCHANAN: Glenn Close’s reaction to her win is the single best moment of the night.

TONY RUIZ: Did anyone else hear what Oldman whispered to Glenn? “I saw your performance. It was extraordinary. I’m so happy for you.”

SAM ECKMANN: And just like that the Globes revive Glenn Close’s Oscar chances.

SUSAN WLOSZCZYNA: OH MY Glenn knocked out Gaga. And a kiss from her Fatal Attraction lover boy.

ROBERT PIUS: Thelma Ritter and Deborah Kerr will remain the most nominated actresses without a win because Glenn Close is getting an Oscar come February.

Best Film Drama Actor
presented by: Richard Gere and Julianne Moore

Rami Malek (“Bohemian Rhapsody”)

AMANDA SPEARS: Lose twice on the tv side (“Mr. Robot”) win on the film side! Loving the last-minute surprises!
