Best/Worst of Golden Globes 2015

[Content note: rape]

So Golden Globes have come and gone. Since I've had something to say about it the past few years,  I figured I'd throw in my two cents again. I know pretty much everyone who writes about pop culture and/or celebrities and/or feminism will also do so...so I'm not going to get in depth or anything. I just want to note a few things.

Worst moments:
  • Jeremy Renner making a disgusting joke about J. Lo's "globes" aka her breasts aka stfu Renner.
  • The whole Margaret Cho/North Korea bit. And it being pretty much the only Asian representation last night.
  • Fey and Poehler's Bill Cosby rape jokes. Disliked for the reasons listed at the link.
  • Ricky Gervais saying  Quvenzhan√© Wallis' name wrong. I keep thinking about how she's a KID at these things and people do crap like that and ugh. No.
  • Selma getting snubbed for all the major awards. Y'all...that film...is...seriously amazing. Ava DuVernay deserves everything in my mind.
  • Billy Bob Thornton saying, "You get in trouble for saying anything these days" in his old white man southern draw. This went under the radar, I feel like. But all I could think was, "So you're definitely a bigot then?" But at least he stuck to his word and didn't say anything else and just took his ass off stage after a simple, "Thank you." Weird moment.
Best moments:

Overall a very mixed bag.
