10 Craziest Golden Globes Moments
Stars, awards and alcohol… a winning combination!
You know how every year around the holidays, countless articles pop up warning you about the dangers of “indulging” too much at your office party? Well, the Golden Globes are proof that no one in Hollywood reads Cosmo in December, because come each January, TV and film stars alike gather to get dressed up, congratulate one another, and as many of the following moments indicate: drink. But what’s their equivalent of hooking up with the accounting guy in the copy room? Check it out!
“Deal with it, Cate Blanchett”
After accepting the award for Best Actress in a Comedy Series, 30 Rock executive producer Tina Fey let co-star Tracy Morgan do the talking for their series’ big win in 2009. It was a dangerous proposition given, say, what he did on this Texas morning show but boy did it pay off. Morgan, 41, became an instant Globes classic when he declared: “Welcome to post-racial America! I am the face of post-racial America. Deal with it, Cate Blanchett!”
Winners in the WC
Unlike the Oscars, where we imagine all entrances and exits from the theatre are planned by handlers hours in advance, the Golden Globes allow guests to roam freely. Which is why you often see celebs fraternizing out of commercial breaks, leaning over to talk to folks at nearby tables and, what with the champers and such, making quick trips to the loo. Of course — one finally understands the need for handlers when a just-announced winner is in the ladies’ room. And that’s exactly what happened to both Christine Lahti in 1998 and Renée Zellweger in 2000. We’d pity them, but it all worked out in the end.
