From speeches about women’s rights to expressing gratitude for fellow stars, this Golden Globes is surely one to remember.

This was Ricky Gervais’s fifth time hosting the Golden Globes and he did not disappoint. When announcing the presenters for best director, Gervais was quick to note that no female directors had been nominated. He even joked that to fix the problem, female directors should not be hired at all.

Kate McKinnon, the Saturday Night Live comedian, presented the Carol Burnett Award to Ellen DeGeneres. McKinnon teared up as she explained how DeGeneres becoming openly gay on TV inspired McKinnon to continue to follow her dreams of being an actress and have more LGBTQ+ representation in the entertainment industry.

When Michelle Williams was giving her speech after winning Best Actress in a Limited Series or Television Movie, she expressed the importance of women’s right to choose and how women need to be selfish when voting.
