Golden Globes 2023: All the moments you might have missed

The White Lotus

star glamorized the red carpet and was greeted by everyone from Jean Smart to Emma Darcy roll call. “I’m sitting at a table with Jennifer Coolidge and I’m really looking forward to it,” said the former, while the latter added: “I don’t really know anyone…but I just finished watching the second season White Lotus, so I figured my jet lag would be worth it if I could get within a three-meter radius of Jennifer Coolidge.” Best Supporting Actress in a Limited Series, she said: “There are some people in this room that have kept me going 20 for years in these little jobs…I don’t know any Man, and this thing isn’t going anywhere. I had such big dreams when I was young, but they got carried away by life. Mike White, you gave me hope, a fresh start. )

In the show’s opening remarks, the host dove headlong into the controversy surrounding this year’s awards show. “I’ll tell you why I’m here,” he told the audience. “I’m here because I’m black. The show didn’t air last year because of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association — I wouldn’t say it’s a racist organization, but they didn’t have a single black member before George Floyd died. So, do what you want with this information. ’ He then recounted how he was “invited to be the black face of a troubled organization,” adding: “So when I had a moral race dilemma, I did what I did. I call my fellow woman Avery, and for the sake of this monologue, she represents every black person in America. I said, ‘What should I do? She’s like, ‘Well, how much are they paying you? I said, ‘$500,.’ She said, ‘Boy, if you don’t wear a good suit, take White people’s money…'”

He continued, “I was very proud of the decision until I got an email from a PR person saying that HFPA Chair Helen [ Hoehne] wanted to do a one-on-one sit-down with me. I said, ‘No thanks, I know when I hear a trap. And then they come back and say, ‘Well, they didn’t really mean to ask, they insisted you come to the meeting. I thought, ‘Or what? ! Are they going to fire me? ! They haven’t had a black host in 20 years, will they fire the first one? I can’t fire it and it’s back: “Helen really just wanted to tell you about the changes the organization is making in terms of diversity.” I’m going to be completely honest with everyone here tonight. I don’t really need to listen. I’m assuming they took the job with no changes at all. I hear they have six new black members, congrats to them, whatever. I’m here, really, because I look at this room and I see a lot of talented people. Regardless of HFPA’s past, this is a night to celebrate. I think the industry deserves a night like this. “
