In the first hour of the show, Andy Samberg joked about Bill Cosby giving a full confession and Jonah Hill presented an award wearing a bear hat. Hill was bleeped twice for using profanity during his presentation.
Actress Jaimie Alexander’s microphone was also cut when she criticized the person running the teleprompter during an awards presentation.
Sean Penn’s Rolling Stone interview with Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman had several people fascinated at the Golden Globes.
‘Santa Monica High alumni get things done. We get nominated for Golden Globes, we help apprehend international drug fugitives, because that’s what we’re taught at Santa Monica High,” joked actor and Penn’s fellow Santa Monica High School alum Rob Lowe.
Wagner Moura wasn’t so sure it was a good idea for Penn to venture to the jungles of Mexico to meet with Guzman before the drug lord was captured this week.
‘Isn’t that crazy? ‘ asked Moura, who portrays drug lord Pablo Escobar on the television series “Narcos.”
‘Wolf Hall’ is the winner of the Golden Globe Award for best miniseries or TV film.
The six-episode miniseries stars Damian Lewis as King Henry VIII and Mark Rylance as his trusted adviser. It aired on PBS.
“Mozart in the Jungle”’ has won the Golden Globe Award for best television comedy series.
The Amazon series stars Gael Garcia Bernal as a brash new member of the New York Symphony.
Kate Winslet has won the Golden Globe Award for best supporting actress in a feature film.
Winslet won for her role in “Steve Jobs.” She portrays marketing executive Joanna Hoffman, a trusted adviser of the late Apple co-founder.
Ricky Gervais isn’t wasting any time blasting Hollywood’s elite, taking aim at Sean Penn, NBC and Caitlyn Jenner in his Golden Globe Awards opening monologue.
Gervais’ first joke included a poke at Penn, who conducted an interview with a Mexican drug kingpin and penned an essay for Rolling Stone magazine. Gervais joked he wanted to get through his monologue and go into hiding _ somewhere even Penn couldn’t find him.
He then called the actor a “snitch” _ a reference to Mexican authorities’ claims that Penn’s interview helped lead them to Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.
The comedian also joked NBC was the perfect network to broadcast the Globes, since it had no nominations.
And he lauded Jenner for being a role model and breaking down barriers when she announced her transition, but then added, “She didn’t do a lot for women drivers.”
Jenner, formerly Bruce Jenner, was involved in a fatal car crash in February. She is being sued over the wreck, but prosecutors refused to pursue charges.
Sunday’s ceremony is the fourth time Gervais has hosted the boozy ceremony honoring top television shows and films.
It’s more dangerous than it looks the navigating the Golden Globes red carpet.
Olivia Wilde nearly lost a limo door when she opened it in front of oncoming traffic on the two-lane driveway where celebs are being dropped off for the show Sunday evening.
That configuration kept several stars from coming over to the fan bleachers to high five or pose for as they have done in the past. Mark Ruffalo, Amy Schumer and Amy Adams were among those who made up for it by flashing peace signs, blowing kisses or waving from afar.
“Hi, guys!” Adams exclaimed as she stepped out of her ride.
Will Smith and Kevin Hart decided to take their chances and cross in front of traffic to get to the bleachers.
Laverne Cox experienced a different kind of emergency. The “Orange is the New Black” co-star required a dedicated handler for her long white train as she exited her vehicle.
Ricky Gervais is playing coy about whether he’s made any last-minute revisions to his Golden Globe Awards joke roster.
Gervais wouldn’t say whether he wrote new material after Rolling Stone released a piece by actor Sean Penn in which he interviewed Mexican drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.
The host of Sunday’s ceremony told Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie that NBC and the ceremony’s hosts haven’t put any restrictions on what he says.
Gervais, who has skewered many stars during his three previous times hosting the Golden Globes, says the show will go by fast.
And he promised Lauer and Guthrie that, “I won’t break any laws, you know.”
This year’s heightened security is creating a mile-long traffic jam outside the site of the Golden Globes.
Each limo, SUV or other vehicle arriving for valet parking at the Beverly Hilton Hotel must stop while authorities check the contents of the trunk. Mirrors are being used to check underneath vehicles.
The new restrictions also bar guests from being dropped off by cab and walking in.
The heavy security presence around the hotel and the Globes’ red carpet includes SWAT officers, dogs and representatives of multiple police agencies, including the FBI.
The limousines, sport-utility vehicles, sedans and ride-sharing services are creating a Golden Globes traffic jam.
Alan Cumming, Patrick Stewart, Michael Shannon, Bernadette Peters and the cast of Amazon’s “Transparent” were among the first celebs to arrive on a red-carpet-covered driveway Sunday afternoon.
Sam Smith was greeted by screams when he opened his passenger-side door directly in front of a bleacher populated with fans.
While most stars made a beeline to the camera crews and photographers waiting outside the Beverly Hilton, Jamie Lee Curtis stopped to wave and blow kisses to the excited crowd.
“Thank you!” she screamed.
When a fan recognized actor and screenwriter Danny Strong, the “Empire” co-creator paused to acknowledge the greeting.
“You’re the one person who knew my name,” he shouted. “I love you!”
Jason Schwartzman arrived in the most stylish ride, emerging from a vintage limo.
It’s still hours to showtime, but the Golden Globes red carpet is already warming up.
With intermittent sun beating down outside the Beverly Hilton Hotel following days of rain, “Today” show co-hosts Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie rehearsed for celebrity arrivals at their prime, rose-covered red carpet location. Dressed casually with shades covering their faces, the pair interviewed a stand-in wearing a pink Jennifer Lawrence sign around her neck.
With the threat of rain diminished, “Entertainment Tonight” stagehands ascended ladders on the other side of the carpet to remove tarps covering their red carpet headquarters. If there is any drizzle, a transparent tent will protect celebrities _ but not the fans.
In the uncovered bleachers, a group of about 40 fans of the TV series “Outlander” gathered _ a few in costume _ to catch a glimpse and root for the cast and crew of the Starz series.
“We apologize in advance if we’re loud and obnoxious,” said Leona Barad told to the rest of the crowd in the bleachers.
Barad coordinated with dozens of other “Outlander” fans on Facebook for the group to sit among the audience overlooking the awards show entrance. When cameras from E! panned across the crowd, they screamed “OUTLANDER!” in unison.
