Everyone Melted After Ryan Gosling Thanked Eva Mendes For Her Sacrifices; And More Top Moments From The Golden Globes

@preetsd / @diegoslunas / Instagram

The Golden Globes has given us some very memorable Latino moments in the past. Who can forget when they confused America Ferrera for Gina Rodriguez? Well, the 2017 Golden Globes was able to give us a couple more memorable Latino moments and this time none of them came from cringeworthy gaffes.

Ryan Gosling totally gave his wife Eva Mendes all the glory for his win as Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.


“While I was singing and dancing and playing piano and having one of the best experiences I ever had on a film, my lady was raising our daughter, pregnant with our second, and trying to help her brother fight his battle with cancer,” Gosling said during his speech. “If she hadn’t have taken all that on so that I could have this experience, there would surely be someone else up here other than me today. So sweetheart, thank you.”

This speech seriously had some Golden Globes viewers weak at the knees.


❤️ ? ?

Diego Luna didn’t hold back when he told the audience to be quiet en español.


“¡Silencio por favor!” That’s it. It took just three words to create a wonderful moment in Golden Globes history and in the Twitter-verse.

Latinos everywhere were like:


First, he does Star Wars with his Mexican accent and now he speaks Spanish while presenting at the Golden Globes? Be still, my heart.

Diego Luna and his bestie Gael García Bernal created some serious #squadgoals envy.

That look in Bernal’s eye is one of total love and admiration. Make sure you find yourself a bestie that gives you the same look.

They even carpooled to the awards show together.

En camino!!! Here we go!!! #goldenglobes #VamosPorElBicampeonatoGael

We wonder if they picked their outfits together, too.

Moonlight, a film that prominently displays an afro-Cuban story set in Miami, won Best Motion Picture – Drama.


Director Barry Jenkins talked to the press after winning the award and credited the success of the film to its fans. Jenkins also spoke about how the film, maybe because of the political climate, has served as a way for people to see themselves reflected in entertainment and reaffirm their belief that their stories matter.

Fellow Cubans were thrilled to see a story like Moonlight‘s make it to the top of the pile.


¡Dale!

But, the most memorable and poignant moment came from Meryl Streep, who dug into Donald Trump without once mentioning his name.


“There was one performance this year that stunned me — it sank its hooks in my heart,” Streep told the audience, referring to the time Trump mocked a disabled reporter with whom he disagreed. “Not because it was good; there was nothing good about it. But it was effective and it did its job. It made its intended audience laugh, and show their teeth. It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter. It kind of broke my heart when I saw it, and I still can’t get it out of my head, because it wasn’t in a movie. It was real life.”

Her moment gave Latino celebs in attendance life, according to Gina Rodriguez.

Even Disney’s first Latina princess took the time to tweet a quote from Streep’s Golden Globes speech.


Well, if the princess agrees…

To have both Diego Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal is almost an overload on #MovementMondays and for many these two are not new news. I met them both in the film Y Tu Mama Tambien and I just fell in love. Diego Luna, a Mexican actor, producer and director and star of the most recent Star Wars Rogue One. Gael Garcia Bernal is a Mexican film actor, director, and producer. He and Diego Luna founded Canana Films in Mexico City. He is mostly known for his performances in the films Bad Education, The Motorcycle Diaries, and Babel, and in Amazon Studios' web television series Mozart in the Jungle. I can list their credentials and this post would be a mile long but I will leave it to you to see their incredible work because you should. Research and watch and support and uplift because these two have and continue to do so much for the community and humanity. Last night at the globes Diego Luna was poised and bilingual. It made my heart glow. I love Mondays for this reason, I get to share the work of those I love and admire and you can do the same. Join the movement. Post those that inspire you and represent you in a way that makes you know you are capable of anything! #MovementMondays

Now imagine seeing them together in person.??

Their fans really see them as precious angels on Earth.


Flower crowns and floating hearts on fleek.

And many are thrilled about how much they’re accomplishing as Latinos in the film industry.??


And something tells us they’re just getting started.

They are the original bromance, and ultimate friendship goals.❤️


So if you find a friend like Diego Luna and Gael García Bernal, hold on tight to them and never let go. Because friends who work together, motivate, inspire and challenge one another, are the best friends anyone could have.
