Golden Globe Awards 2017: Major movie slip up, plus full Winner’s list!

Jimmy Fallon hosted the Golden Globe Awards

Kicking off awards season, Jimmy Fallon hosted the 74th Golden Globe Awards on Sunday. The opening number – inspired by the night’s big winner, the musical La La Land – featured Fallon and some of Hollywood’s finest singing and dancing through red carpet traffic and into the movies and TV shows of 2016.

The Golden Globe Awards entertained us with funny and touching acceptance speeches, some surprising wins and losses, red carpet hits and misses and a few choice words about president-elect Donald Trump.

Viola Davis gave a touching and funny introduction for Meryl Streep, who was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille award. Meryl Streep’s heart-felt acceptance speech captivated the audience as she spoke of a real-life performance that stunned her, alluding to Donald Trump, and his mocking of a disabled reporter.

The big winner of the night came as no surprise. La La Land took home Golden Globe Awards for all seven categories it was nominated in, including Best Actor and Actress for Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone.

A slip-up caused a fictional movie to be created and mocked via social media, when pre-show host Jenna Bush Hager mixed up the movies “Fences” and “Hidden Figures” when interviewing Pharrell Williams, who worked on the space film starring Octavia Spencer Taraji P. Henson, and Janelle Monáe. “Fences” stars Viola Davis and Denzel Washington who plays a sanitation worker who dreams of playing professional baseball.

Michael Keaton made the same mistake while introducing the Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama category, in which Spencer was nominated.

Social media reactions over the slip-up ranged from amused to angered.

This morning, Jenna Bush Hager apologized for the blunder in an interview with TODAY.
