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.

I'm going to start things off with this visual of Issa Rae as a reminder to us all that we should take better care of our teeth, skin, hair, spirit, and everything else. I mean, just look at her! 😍

2017 was a momentous year for women in Hollywood, so to pay homage to that fact, the Golden Globes tapped a man to host the show (again) because of course they did. Although not the ideal choice, Seth Meyers managed to make it through the broadcast without being cringe-y, so high-five to him.


While he was on stage doing that, the host we deserve was busy giving us a 2018 motto:

What inspired Octavia Spencer to go from zero to Oh hiiiieeeee!?

Probably the live camera.


Maybe she caught Catherine Zeta-Jones doing this:

James Franco somehow won an award. And no one was more surprised than Hugh Jackman, who could only help but stare and wonder, I lost to that guy???

And the surprises kept on coming when Tommy Wiseau, the bizarre inspiration for Franco's The Disaster Artist, tried to snatch a 16th minute of fame.

It's common knowledge that Mariah Carey works wonders; this holiday season, for instance, Mariah Carey made over $60 million solely from "All I Want For Christmas Is You," a song that she wrote 23 years ago! But how does she still look this good?! What a legend. She's the press conference, we're a conversation.

Reese wasn't mouthing these words to Mariah, but she should have been:

Every time a certain political figure interrupts your good day with a tweet:

That whole Tonya Harding / Nancy Kerrigan knee-bash situation happened before Call Me By Your Name star Timothée Chalamet was even born, but that doesn't mean he doesn't respect his herstory (get a load of the way he looks at Tonya):

Timothée Chalamet : Tonya Harding :: Emma Watson : Big Little Lies.

In case you're wondering, Barbra Streisand is still dramatic.

The award for Best Transition Out of an Acceptance Speech goes to Amy Sherman-Palladino (who really should have won a Globe for Gilmore Girls back in the day, but whatever).

And the award for Realest Real Talk goes to... Natalie Portman!

Uh oh, someone's edible kicked in.

No, but really, what exactly is she on?

Non-high people don't negotiate time and space like this.

The night was chock full of icons, but there was one legend that got all the attention:

The mere sight of her caused people to geek out:

Blow kisses:


And that was before she got on stage to give her State of the Union address:

Which caused everyone to nod and smile like all was finally right with the world:

Clap 'til their hands were raw:

Quietly sob because OMG Oprah is right over there!

And generally lose their sh-t:

Oprah is so used to being worshipped by now, all she can do is humbly bow and think about her 2020 Electoral College landslide.


And that’s all he wrote. See y’all next month for the Grammys and Oscars!
