Don’t shoot the piano player
Pianist Chloe Rose had a sweet gig at the Golden Globesplaying TV and movie theme songs on camera as the show went to commercial break, but it was temporarily soured when some in the audience mistakenly thought she was the one when the winner gets upset. He should finish his speech.

“You can forget that piano,” Colin Farrell said of the musical when he accepted the men’s version of the same award for “Insane Banshees.”
When Austin Butler won Best Actor in a Motion Picture for “Elvis” and started playing the piano, he was asked to sing by the man who portrayed him.
“At least play ‘Suspicious Minds’ or something,” Butler said.
But none of these blossomed.
“People on Twitter are mad that he’s playing with people, but it’s a track,” host Jarrod Carmichael said during the show. “Chloe, we’re lucky to have you.”
Gul tweeted Medium publication on the topic itself.
“I will never play the piano according to people!!” she wrote “I only play when you see me on camera!”
Murphy kicks out at two minutes and with a mic drop
Eddie Murphy certainly didn’t need to play. Most people who win the Cecil B. DeMille Award, a lifetime achievement award, use the moment to make a keynote speech. Oprah Winfrey Inspired by the 2018 presidential election. But Murphy’s acceptance took just two minutes, shorter than most regular winners on the night.
He thanked a bunch of people and quickly closed with a Mike Drop joke about Will Smith and Chris Rock..
“I’ve been doing this for a long time so I can stand here and say thank you while they play the piano,” Murphy said. “But I’m going to make it right and say something to all the future dreamers and artists in the room tonight. I want to let you know that there is a definite blueprint for achieving success, prosperity and peace of mind. You can follow it. Pay your taxes, mind your own business, and keep Will Smith’s wife’s name out of your mouth!
Tears and loss of family for several years
Despite the decline of globes in the middle of conflict In recent years, their wins still bring a lot of tears, sometimes from unexpected people. Ke Huy Quan The emotional set the tone as he cried while accepting his first award of the night, Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture for “Everything Everywhere All At Once.” He tearfully thanked Steven Spielberg for giving him his start in “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” before talking about the decades he thought he’d never make it to the top.
Spielberg, who has failed to win major awards, was emotional when he won the Best Director Globe for “Fabelmans.” Because it was about his family. “I have been hiding from this story since I was 17 years old,” he said. He called every member of his family by name, ending with his late mother, Leah Adler, who inspired Michelle Williams’ character. In the heart of the film, said that “he is talking about it now.”
Jennifer Coolidge, who always does something while speaking on stage, and has often been a presenter and winner on Tuesday night, shed a few honest tears as she impressively introduced the creator. Mike thanked White for placing her in “White Lotus”. which won her the award for Best Actress in a Limited Series.
“You changed my life in a million different ways,” Coolidge said. “My neighbors talk to me.”
White cried during the speech, and was still red-eyed minutes later when he accepted the award for Best Limited Series for the show.
Apologies for all absences
On a night when some boycotted the show, Golden Globes presenters took the rare step of explaining, sometimes in detail, why some winners weren’t there. Cate Blanchett, winner of best actress in a film drama for “The Wire,” “can’t be here tonight because she’s in Britain for a production,” said host Henry Goulding.
Amanda Seyfried, winner of best actress in a limited series for “Drop Out,” “is deep in the process of creating new music so she can’t be here tonight,” host Mo Brings Plenty said.
Regina Hall made it clear she was reading from a telly prompter and mocked the explanation she had to give Kevin Costner for not accepting his best actor in a TV drama award for “Yellowstone,” despite This week there is a serious topic of severe flooding in California this week..
“He wanted to be here,” Hall said, shaking his head and laughing, “but because of the inclement weather, he had to settle in Santa Barbara.”
“Let’s all pray,” she said, before catching herself and saying “No, that’s scary.”
Carmichael deliberately courted controversy
Host Jarrod Carmichael didn’t hold back with his jokes, starting with his monologue, in which he said he was hired “because I’m black.” A few of his on-the-edge jokes, delivered in his laid-back style, fell flat, including a dig at Tom Cruise and the Church of Scientology., and he calls the Beverly Hilton, the Globes’ longtime home, “the hotel that killed Whitney Houston.” The superstar died in a room there in 2012.
But a joke based on Yeh’s anti-Sam comments, Kanye West’s ex, got a big laugh when Carmichael told Spielberg that he had seen the “Fabelmans,” who belonged to Spielberg’s Jewish family.
“I actually saw it with Kenny,” Carmichael said, “and it changed everything for him.”
Spielberg responded with a “thank God” gesture.
