In the aftermath of Sunday nights 72nd Golden Globes, several actors and actresses are able to sit back and celebrate the praise they received throughout the night for their work. However, several moments were just too cute to be ignored.
Keira Knightley, showing off her growing baby bump, glowed as she walked down the carpet with her adorable hubby James Righton; she kicked off the cute moments as soon as she stepped off the carpet. As many pregnant women have experienced, Keira apparently had the sudden urge to pee just before the Globes began. Unfortunately, she was not the only woman who had the same feeling. The line for the restroom at the Globes is almost legendary, but luckily for The Imitation Game actress, she was quickly able to skip the line. “I’m sorry, excuse me, pregnant lady coming through!” Knightley exclaimed as she made her way into the stall, no doubt looking just as sweet as she did on the carpet. Fellow actress and mother Anna Farris was sympathetic to the pregnant star’s situation, joking that she “wanted to wear a catheter for this show!”
The charming moments only multiplied as the show began. Hosts Amy Poheler and Tina Fey, veterans for the awards show, refused to hold back, poking fun at anyone and everyone who was present at the Globes. Poheler took shots at her friend Steve Carrell, joking “In Foxcatcher, Steve Carell plays a paranoid, murderous billionaire. The role was a stretch for Carell who in real life is a paranoid, murderous millionaire.” Fey chose to take a shot at the infamous Sony film The Interview, commenting, “Tonight we celebrate all the great television shows we know and love as well as all the movies that North Korea was OK with.” Undeniably, the greatest moment the two funny women created was their phenomenal game of “Would You Rather”, pitting Colin Ferrell against Colin Firth and Mark Ruffalo against Ed Norton. A wonderful way to kick off the end of the pair’s three-year-streak hosting the Globes.
On a slightly more serious, but incredibly touching moment, Joanne Froggatt melted hearts when she paid tribute to victims of sexual assault in her acceptance speech. Winning the award for Best Supporting Actress in a TV Show for her work on Downton Abbey, Froggatt acknowledged a series of letters she received from fans after the release of the episode where her character suffers a horrifying rape. After the episode’s debut, the talented actress received several letters from fans who were victims of rape and were moved by the scene. In her lovely acceptance speech, Froggatt reached out to those who wrote her letters, saying, “I heard you.” The touching moment gave the funny ceremony a serious note without dampening the mood of the night.
The 2015 Golden Globes were a night filled with laughs, love, and countless adorable moments. The bar has definitely been set high for the 2016 Globes—let’s just hope whoever takes over for Amy Poehler and Tina Fey can get the job done!
