Last night, the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards was broadcast live from Los Angeles, with late-night funnyman Seth Meyers at the helm and a crowd of well (and darkly) dressed, politically charged Hollywood elite in attendance. The show is the must-watch kickoff to award season, and while the place to catch these events live may still be on TV, the best way to gossip about them afterwards is on social media.
Here’s everything that Twitter thought was awesome (and not so much) from the 75th Golden Globe Awards.
Hands down the most retweetable moment from the 75th Golden Globes was the show of solidarity for the ongoing battle against sexual assault and gender inequality. Women and men alike wore black, many of them choosing to bring activists as dates, and used the hashtag #TimesUp to show their support and help raise awareness.

Kendall Jenner getting roasted for her lamentable Pepsi ad
It seems the Internet isn’t quite ready to forget that terrible Pepsi ad Kendall did earlier this year. “And the winner for worst social media influencer in a soft drink commercial goes goes to…”

Sterling K. Brown thanking This Is Us creator for making “a role for a black man”
Actor Sterling K. Brown took home a shiny new trophy for Best Actor in a Drama Television Series last night, and in his 60 seconds of thank-yous–which he opens with saying just the word “Oprah”–made a point to thank This is Us creator Dan Fogelman for his character, Randall Pearson. “You wrote a role for a black man that can only be played by a black man,” he said. “I’m being seen for who I am.”

Tom Hanks delivering drinks for his table
Tom Hanks would be that guy to get the first round. Either he’s officially the nicest man in Hollywood or table service was really slow.

Claire Foy’s suit
The focus was decidedly not on fashion at this year’s event, but there were still some stand-out outfits in all black. The Crown’s Claire Foy looked smart and stunning in a double-breasted black suit with no shirt and flared bottoms.

When Kelly Met Meryl
Even stars get starstruck. Kelly Clarkson demonstrated just what this looks like when she saw Meryl Streep on the red carpet and nearly fell over. Seriously, Ryan Seacrest thought she was falling over.

Oprah’s epic “A New Day” speech
There was no literal mic drop, but there should have been. Oprah’s speech, which you simply MUST watch, received a standing ovation and was probably an indication that she should run for President of the United States.

Millie Bobby Brown and David Harbour’s heartwarming father/daughter moment
This moment captured between Stranger Things’ Millie Bobby Brown and David Harbour was so legit, it could’ve passed for a scripted scene from the actual hit television series. We’ll never know what he was saying to the 14-year-old actor, but you’ve got to imagine it was some words of wisdom a la Chief Jim Hopper.

Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman’s ridiculously cute but terribly awkward kiss
These two define #couplegoals, so it’s nice to see that they too can miss (literally) from time to time. This is the Trump handshake of congratulatory kisses. Still, adorable!

Justin Timberlake bragging about arriving with his uber talented wife
JT was an enthusiastic plus one to his wife, two-time Golden Globe nominee Jessica Biel. The two got high on his own supply, jamming out to JT’s new track “Filthy” on their way to the event.

James Franco blocking Tommy Wiseau from taking the mic
If you know Franco and Wiseau, this moment needs no explaining. It’s perfectly, awkwardly amazing. But if you need a little context: actor Greg Sestero’s memoir, called The Disaster Artist, recalls his role in Tommy Wiseau’s 2003 flick The Room (the best/worst movie of all time). Franco relives Wiseau’s role as actor and director and nails everything about the obscure star, right down to his accent.

Parks & Rec virtually fist bumping former cast member Aziz Ansari for his win
Aziz seemed visibly thrown off during his acceptance speech for his role in Master of None. “I didn’t think I was going to win because all of the websites said I was going to lose,” he said. Or maybe it was Oprah sitting first row distracting everyone who stepped foot on stage.

Mariah Carey just wanted a cup of goddamn tea
Tom Hanks was one of the first to line up for the bar (which, looks like an average wedding setup, tbh), but all Mariah Carey wants to know is where a woman can get a hot cup of tea. Early Grey or Sleepy Time, Mariah?
Are they serving tea here? #GoldenGlobes

Natalie Portman calls out gender inequality in a not-so-subtle way
While presenting the award for best director with Ron Howard, Portman pointed out the lack of women nominees in the category in a markedly straightforward way and people loved it. Michael Moore’s reaction says it all.
