Golden Globes 2017 in pictures: the superhero kiss, the awkward hug, Barb’s resurrection and all the winners

The Golden Globes 2017 was another slightly messy, boozy version of the Oscars: loads of film awards handed out, but plenty of random oddness happening in between. Here are the big Golden Globe winners of this year, plus all talking points: Barb coming back to life, Emma Stone’s awkward hug with La La Land director Damien Chazelle, the random kiss between Andrew Garfield and Ryan Reynolds – and, of course, the various veiled criticisms of President-Elect Donald Trump.



In an opening skit, Jimmy Fallon and loads of Hollywood actors referenced parts of La La Land, Arrival, Game of Thrones and more – but the key moment was this, in which Stranger Things' Barb was resurrected from a pool (like the one she was last seen sitting at in the series).

La La Land – a musical starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling – won every award it was nominated for, including best director, best screenplay, best score, best song, and best musical or comedy film. You can catch it in the UK from Thursday, January 12.

La La Land stars Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling also won the best actor and best actress awards in the 'musical or comedy' section, bringing the film's total Globe wins up to 7.


The first of many times La La Land director Damien Chazelle was called to the stage to accept an award – in this instance, for best screenplay – Emma Stone tried to congratulate him with a hug as he was embracing his girlfriend Olivia Hamilton. Stone's hilarious reaction and her apology – 'That was weird, I'm sorry!' – went viral.

Hugh Laurie won best actor in a series, miniseries or television film for his role in 'The Night Manager'. In his speech he took a moment to take a pop at Donald Trump without even using his name, by joking that this would be the last ever ceremony: "I won at the last ever Golden Globes. I don’t meant to be gloomy, it’s just that it has the words Hollywood, Foreign, and Press in the title... I think to some Republicans even the word Association is slightly sketchy.”

From the same TV series, Tom Hiddleston won best actor, using the opportunity to voice his support for Médecins Sans Frontières doctors in South Sudan.

Meryl Streep, collecting the pretigious Cecil B Demille Award, referred to Trump in everything but name, criticising the "one performance this year that stunned me" in which he mocked a disabled reporter: "Disrespect invites disrespect," she said. "Violence incites violence. When the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose." Trump has since responded that he "never 'mocked' a disabled reporter (would never do that) but simply showed him 'groveling' when he totally changed a 16-year-old story that he had written in order to make me look bad."

And finally, this is the moment Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds and one-time Spiderman actor Andrew Garfield shared a kiss after neither of them received the best actor award they were nominated for: drama, in Garfield's case, and comedy in Reynolds'. This, friends, is what they call finding solace.
