Always Remember Lady Gaga This Way
"Shallow" — Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s duet from A Star Is Born — won Best Original Song at the 2019 Golden Globes.
“I just have to say, as a woman in music, it is really hard to be taken seriously as a musician and as a songwriter, and these three incredible men: Andrew Wyatt, Anthony Rossomando, Mark Ronson standing with me, they lifted me up, they supported me", Gaga said.

Although Lady Gaga has been a favourite throughout the season, for her part in A Star is Born, it was Glenn Close who was recognised as Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama, for her role in The Wife.
"When I was little, I felt like Muhammad Ali, who was destined to be a boxer. I felt destined to be an actress, and here I am today", she said. ”I will have been 45 years, in September, a working actress, and I cannot imagine a more wonderful life", she said in her acceptance speech.

The moment, which is now going viral on Twitter, showed Malek approaching Kidman, who turned away from him. In a bid to eliminate the awkwardness, Malek gently touched her back while joining the producers on stage.

Amy Adams-turned-Leo DiCaprio?
Some viewers made an interesting observation: Amy Adams, who was nominated in two categories — Best Actress in a Mini-Series for HBO’s Sharp Objects and Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture for Vice — didn't get any prize. One netizen even compared her to Leonardo DiCaprio, who had to wait 22 years after his first Academy Awards nomination to finally win an Oscar:
Unfortunately it looks like Amy Adams is the new Leonardo DiCaprio #GoldenGlobes#GoldenGlobes2019 😔 😭 pic.twitter.com/bP7VH0Jiba— Ben (@BenStanDolanSA) 7 января 2019 г.

Free Flu Shots for Everyone!
Cohosts Oh and Samberg opted for a bizarre mid-show celebrity gift gag, which has become a common practice throughout such shows. But instead of delivering pizza like Ellen DeGeneres at the 2014 Oscars or presenting everyone with lunch boxes full of chips and candies like Jimmy Kimmel at last year's Academy Awards, the duo announced that every guest was going to receive a flu shot. People in white coats stormed the ballroom with vaccine needles and offered stars flu shots to the tune of LMFAO’s “Shots”.
