The 2017 Golden Globes, hosted by Jimmy Fallon, were held Sunday, January 8. Despite a (predictably) lackluster showing from Fallon, the ceremony mostly lived up to its reputation for being one of the most “fun” shows of awards season, with winsome moments, some unexpected humor, and one hell of a Meryl Streep speech. (Streep was presented with the Globes’ Cecile B. DeMille Award for “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment.”)

The night’s big winner was La La Land, which broke a record with seven wins — the most Golden Globes wins ever by a single film. Stars Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling won in the Best Performance categories for a comedy or musical, and the film won Best Motion Picture in the comedy or musical category.
Wins on the drama side were split, with Casey Affleck taking home Best Performance by an Actor for Manchester by the Sea, Isabelle Huppert taking Best Performance by an Actress for Elle, and Moonlight taking Best Motion Picture.

Bringing a serious note to the evening, Meryl Streep received thunderous applause from the crowd as she talked about America’s political climate while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille award.
The film icon echoed Hugh Laurie’s message as she thanked the Hollywood Foreign Press, saying: “You and all of us in the room belong to the most vilified segments in American society right now, Hollywood. Foreigners and the press.”
She called out Hollywood stars in the room and listed the places they were born.
“So Hollywood is crawling with foreigners and outsiders and if you kick them all out all you’ll have to watch is football and mixed martial arts which is not the arts.”
Streep then described the moment she saw president-elect Donald Trump impersonate a disabled reporter, saying it “broke my heart”.
“It filters down into everyone’s life because it gives permission for other people to do the same. Disrespect invites disrespect.”
Streep’s message quickly provoked backlash from Trump supporters on social media, who called for people to boycott her movies.
Streep became tearful as she delivered her final words — a quote from Carrie Fisher.
“As my friend, the dear departed Princess Leia, said to me once: Take your broken heart, make it into art.”
