So, about the Golden Globes. Initially, I had zero intention of watching it—I’ve been underwhelmed with Hollywood for numerous reasons lately—but something in me just had to see what was going to happen. While I was a bit disappointed with pretty much most of several aspects of the show, and I didn’t get to see Idris Elba, there were still moments of the night that made me genuinely smile, and moments that made me cackle wholeheartedly

1) The Red Carpet Slays. Well, first off, Angela Bassett refuses to age. Laverne Cox came in and showed everyone up in a gorgeous Elizabeth Kennedy dress. Uzo Aduba was sparkling. And Will & Jada were the epitome of Black love. Just yes…#Goals

4) Jamie Foxx pulling a Steve Harvey and yelling 'Straight Outta Compton' as the winner of Best Score

5) …And then the reaction after Quentin Tarantino said “ghetto”. Because we all collectively thought the same thing…
6) Queen Latifah’s facial expressions, which summed up our thoughts for the night..
