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

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…

The 78th annual Golden Globes Awards aired last night, and because of the pandemic, the ceremony was like nothing we’ve ever seen before. The awards show was a “hybrid ceremony”, with some attendees joining the festivities in person and some joining virtually from their homes.

Because of that, the fashion situation was varied. While many people went full Hollywood glam, others went work-from-home casual (we’re looking at you Jason Sudeikis).

Yes, there was an actual physical red carpet in both New York City and Los Angeles (the awards were being broadcast from two cities), but many celebs opted to bring the red carpet into their homes.

Here is a round-up of our favorite fashion moments from the 2021 Golden Globes.

Anya Taylor-Joy

The Argentine beauty stunned in a beautiful emerald custom Dior gown and matching cape. Apparently, the ensemble took over 300 hours to make. Taylor-Joy was one of the many stars that decided to attend the awards show from home.

Yalitza Aparicio

The beautiful and super-talented Yalitza Aparicio wore head-to-toe Mexican designers. Her bold color-block dress was made by Mexican designer Kris Goyri and her jewelry was designed by Daniela Villegas.

Salma Hayek

The queen of red carpets didn’t disappoint this year. The Mexican-born actress wore a striking cherry-red one-shoulder Alexander McQueen gown. She paired the look with Harry Winston jewelry.

Sofia Carson

This former Disney Channel star wore a Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown on the red carpet. The Colombian triple-threat dazzled in a pale pink gown and a wine-colored cape with a large shoulder bow.

Eiza Gonzalez

Mexican-born actress Eiza Gonzalez wore a figure-flattering Versace dress to her virtual awards ceremony. She paired the look with slicked-back hair and a bold pink lip.

Laverne Cox

Laverne Cox didn’t let a home-based ceremony cramp her style. The “Orange is the New Black” star wore a plunging ruby-red embroidered Thai Nguyen gown with caped sleeves.

Dan Levy

We can’t forget about the men! 2020’s breakout star wore a mustard yellow Valentino Men’s Haute Couture suit. He was one of the many stars that opted to attend the ceremony virtually.

Viola Davis

Viola Davis channeled her roots and wore an incredible custom African-print gown made by Black-owned LA-based brand, Lavie by CK.

The Golden Globes And The Reporting Of It Shows A Stark Lack Of Representation

The Golden Globes And The Reporting Of It Shows A Stark Lack Of Representation

The Golden Globes has long been criticized for the lack of diversity. Things haven’t really changed and, in fact, it was recently reported that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has had no Black members in two decades. Here’s a quick break-down of the 2021 Golden Globes.

Anya Taylor-Joy won Best Performance for an Actress for her role in “The Queen’s Gambit.”

Taylor-Joy’s portrayal as chess genius Beck Harmon earned the actress a Golden Globe. The Argentinian actress stunned in a green gown as she accepted the award while sitting at home. The virtual awards show is a very telling sign of the times as the pandemic lingers on as countries rush to inoculate their populations with available vaccines.

The limited series was a major hit for Netflix as millions of people watched Harmon’s rise to meteoric fame in the world of chess. The show led to a renewed interest in chess with sets flying off the shelves and book sales of the novel soaring.

“The Queen’s Gambit” won Best TV Movie or Limited Series.

Netflix reports that 62 million people watched “The Queen’s Gambit” during the first 28 days that show was live. It set a record. Social media was buzzing about the show that helped one of the oldest games in the world see a renewed interest as people around the world stayed at home because of Covid.

Yet, there is a lot that happened that shows the lack of diversity with the Golden Globes.

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey were the hosts of this year’s award ceremony and they quickly called out the lack of diversity within the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Here’s a moment from the opening monologue when the two women specifically called out the HFPA glaring lack of Black journalists.

Poehler: “Yeah, they’re messy. OK, so since you guys aren’t usually here, let us explain what this even is. The Golden Globes are awards given out by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.”

Fey: “The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is made up of around 90 international — no Black — journalists, who attend movie junkets each year in search of a better life. We say around 90 because a couple of them might be ghosts, and it’s rumored that the German member is just a sausage that somebody drew a little face on.”

Variety was caught in its own scandal after announcing Anya Taylor-Joy’s win.

The entertainment publication called Taylor-Joy the first woman of color to win the award since Queen Latifah in 2008. Some speculate that it was said likely because the actress has Latina heritage but it does not mean that she is a woman of color. Twitter worked quickly to educate Variety on why Taylor-Joy should not have been described as a woman of color.

Latinos run the spectrum of race and it is important that the nuances are not lost in cultural moments. Taylor-Joy is a Latina and a Latina winning the award should be celebrated. However, it is important that people understand what qualifies someone as a person of color.

Variety has changed the story and added a correction at the end of the story addressing the controversy.

One of the most impactful moments from the Golden Globes was Jane Fonda’s moving acceptance speech.

The legendary actress was honored with the Cecl. B DeMille award, which is one of the highest honors the HFPA can bestow. The award is in recognition of one performer’s “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment.”

Fonda used her speech to call out the lack of diversity and closed doors within the industry that must be dealt with.

“But there’s a story we’ve been afraid to see and hear about ourselves in this industry. A story about which voices we respect and elevate — and which we tune out,” Fonda said at the start of her closing. “A story about who’s offered a seat at the table and who is kept out of the rooms where decisions are made. So let’s all of us — including all the groups that decide who gets hired and what gets made and who wins awards — let’s all of us make an effort to expand that tent. So that everyone rises and everyone’s story has a chance to be seen and heard. I mean, doing this simply means acknowledging what’s true. Being in step with the emerging diversity that’s happening because of all those who marched and fought in the past and those who’ve picked up the baton today. After all, art has always been not just in step with history but has led the way. So, let’s be leaders, OK?
