The Very Best Gifs from the 2017 Golden Globes

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a gif must be worth at least a million (math!). With the advent of this bite-sized animated wonder, award shows have become less about who won what and more about who made what face. Here are the gifs from last night’s Golden Globe Awards that will be finding their way into your texts and gchats soon.

Kerry Washington got things started on the red carpet by serving up a hot helping of I-did-not-come-to-play-with-you-hoes-I-came-to-slay vibes.

Denzel Washington also did not come to play with you hoes.

Meanwhile, did Cuba Gooding Jr. admit that he's a blackout drunk? Stars: They're Just Like Us!

The opening skit was dominated by cringe-y peas-in-a-pod Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake, but one good thing came out of it: Barb's resurrection!

If you don't know who she is:

A. I feel bad for you.

B. You have some homework to do.

One of the early awards went to Atlanta for "Best Television Series: Musical or Comedy." And Keith Stanfield won the award for "Best Uncontrollable Hula Hoop Victory Dance."

The Golden Globes are the cool mom of award shows because there are bottomless bottles of Moët and complimentary snacks. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s Rachel Bloom was feeling it.

I'm not a mathematician, but it seems as though the formula to becoming approximately 542% more attractive consists of picking up your five-year-old costar, while already being pretty hot.

Are you wondering if Cuba made good on his promise to drink himself into oblivion? Well, judging by the following gif of him screaming (twice!) into Sarah Paulson's ear, he's a man of his word. (Felicity Huffman appears to be his drinking buddy.)

Tom Hiddleston, a.k.a. Taylor Swift's ex, won an award over people like Courtney B. Vance and Bryan Cranston for some reason, and proceeded to deliver an embarrassing speech that boiled down to I went to Africa one time and people there recognized me. Christian Slater's face said it all.

Speaking of awkward, Emma Stone almost accidentally initiated a threesome.

giphy-12

Meanwhile, her ex Andrew Garfield was getting it on with Ryan Reynolds.

What's going on with Hugh Laurie? Choose your own adventure:

A. His leg is asleep.

B. He had too many tequila shots with Cuba.

C. He just remembered he left the stove on.

D. His edible just kicked in.

This is the same amused/confused face Ryan Gosling makes every time I send him inappropriate photos and locks of my hair.

But enough about me and more about Viola Davis, who was not only excited about winning for her work in Fences, but downright giddy over being in Dame Meryl Streep's presence.

giphy-13

And she was not alone. Everyone was exclaiming Yaaaas, queen! in their heads.

But, to Meryl, it was just another day in the neighborhood. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

And that’s all he wrote. See y’all next month for the Grammys and Oscars! Until then, relive gifs of award shows past:

The Only Oscar Moments Worth Talking About (2014 Edition)

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. So I guess that means I'm kind of nuts because, every year, I think the Oscars won't be super duper boring and they always are, except for those brief rays of light that keep us coming back for more.
