Five top moments from the 2019 Golden Globes

Did you miss the annual Golden Globes on Sunday night? Don’t worry, we’ve collected the top five moments from the evening.

5 things that happened at the Golden Globe Awards

1. Fiji Water Girl

The stars appeared in spectacular outfits and happily posed for the cameras at the Golden Globes red carpet, but the one who stole the attention was a woman serving Fiji Water. During the evening, she impressively managed to photobomb celebrities like Heidi Klum, Tom Kaulitz, Jim Carrey, Jeff Bridges and Lucy Boynton.

The mysterious woman, dressed in a blue dress, quickly went viral and created a bunch of new memes and a twitter account where she got the nickname “Fiji Water Girl.”

The Fiji Water Girl was later identified as the model Kelleth Cuthbert. Fiji Water, who’s been sponsoring the award ceremony since 2015, later tweeted: “We’re so glad everyone is talking about our water.”

2. Flu shots?

Instead of offering free pizza or drinks like in the previous Golden Globes, Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg decided to offer the celebrities in the audience flu shots for free.  No one seemed to be up for it, which is totally understandable and not surprising at all.

Having to take a flu shot on camera? No thank you.

The purpose of the free flu shots offer was to encourage people to get vaccinated and to create awareness. 

“If you are an anti-vaxxer, just put a napkin on — perhaps over — your head and we will skip you,” Samberg told the Golden Globes crowd. 

While health professionals praised the gesture on social media, those opposed to vaccinating their children had the opposite reaction.


3. Christian Bale thanked Satan

Christian Bale won the prize for the best male actor for the role of US former vice president Dick Cheney in Vice and thanked... Satan.

"Thank you Satan because you have inspired me how to play this role," he said.

Soon after the acceptance speech, the Church of Satan recognized Bale’s gratitude on Twitter.

As Satanists praised Bale’s win, not everyone was happy with his victory speech. Congresswoman Liz Cheney, the former vice presidents daughter, shared an article about Bale’s alleged assault against family members 2018 saying that "Satan probably inspired him to do this, too."

4. Emma Stone yelled "I’m sorry"

Golden Globe

When Sandra Oh made a joke about "whitewashing" (when white actors play non-white characters) and said that the movie Crazy Rich Asians is the first movie with an Asian American lead since Ghost in a Shell (with Scarlett Johansson) and Aloha (with Emma Stone).

From the Golden Globe audience, Emma Stone suddenly yelled: "I’m sorry."

"It wasn’t like I planned it, but I did say it," Stone later told The Times.

After Stone was casted as a character who is meant to be of one-quarter Chinese and one-quarter Hawaiian descent in Aloha the movie has been one of the most used examples of whitewashing.

The actor has later on apologized by saying in an interview that she was sorry and that the casting controversy forced her to "learn on a macro level about the insane history of whitewashing in Hollywood and how prevalent the problem truly is."

5. Sandra Oh's Lady Gaga joke

Golden Globe

During her Golden Globe opening monologue, the host Sandra Oh made some fun of Lady Gaga for an often repeated story about working with Bradley Cooper in A Star Is Born.

At many events during the movies promotional tour Gaga said "There can be 100 people in a room, and 99 of them don’t believe in you, but all it takes is one, and it just changes your whole life. And for me, Bradley was that one person."

When Oh repeated her famous words, Lady Gaga quickly yelled "it’s true" from the audience.
