By Rose Gaudiani
- Regina King’s inspiring acceptance speech
While receiving her golden globe for best supporting actress in “If Beale Street Could Talk,” King spoke about the gender disparity in Hollywood and made an admirable pledge. “I am going to use my platform to say right now that in the next two years, everything that I produce and I am making a vow and it’s going to be tough to make sure that everything that I produce, that it’s fifty percent women. I just challenge anyone out there who is in a position of power, not just in our industry, in all industries, I challenge you to challenge yourselves and stand with us in solidarity and do the same,” King concluded.
- Maya Rudolph proposes to Amy Poehler
Before presenting the award for Best Screenplay, Maya Rudolph jokingly proposed to Amy Poehler on stage. The comedians parodied Glenn Weiss’ famous proposal at the 2018 Emmy Awards, even joking that their romantic moment would “steal focus” from the awards.
- Every time the camera cut to Sandra Oh’s parents
Sandra Oh’s parents were the most beloved dates brought to the ceremony. Beaming and clapping with pride when she received her award, and smiling wide each time the camera cut to them, Oh’s parents absolutely stole the show.
- Sandra Oh’s acceptance speech
Sandra Oh not only made history as the first Asian American to host the Golden Globes, but also as the first Asian woman to win best actress in a drama series in over 40 years for her role in “Killing Eve.” “Mostly, there are two people here tonight that I am so grateful that they are here with me. I’d like to thank my mother, my father,” she said. She continued by saying “I love you” in Korean and bowed to them in their honor. It’s safe to say everyone’s hearts melted.
