Celebrities use mic time to bring attention to Australia wildfires

Celebrities are using their mic time to bring attention to the wildfires raging in Australia.

Only an hour into the show, Ellen DeGeneres and Pierce Brosnan have both mentioned the fires that have already scorched at least 12 million acres of land, and Jennifer Aniston passed along a message about the fire on behalf of Russell Crowe.

Crowe, who won best actor in a limited series or motion picture made for TV for his role in "The Loudest Voice," said he couldn't attend because he was protecting his home from the fires.

Let's hope some of these very rich celebrities also take the time to donate to the fire recovery efforts.

Kate McKinnon puts a pause on jokes to honor Ellen DeGeneres

Ever the jokester, Kate McKinnon put a pause on punchlines as she presented Ellen DeGeneres the Carol Burnett Award. 

Kate told a couple jokes about all the things Ellen has given her (collared shirts and Sam Smith sneakers, to name a couple). But the most important thing that Ellen gave her cannot be contained in an object. For Kate, Ellen gave her the freedom, the precedent, to be who she is. To realize that she could come out, to realize her queerness openly to herself and the world, and still become the actress and comedian she desired to be.

Kate teared up, Ellen teared up, and I myself, I sobbed in the back of the newsroom like a broken faucet.

Now this is how you do fashionably late

'Parasite' nabs best foreign language film honor, bolsters Oscar chances

"Parasite," Bong Joon Ho's twisted tale of class warfare and inequality, won the award for best foreign language film — a victory that could go along way to strengthening the acclaimed movie's fortunes at the Oscars next month.

The film, an import from South Korea and a sleeper hit at the U.S. box office, was one of the best-reviewed movies of 2019. It likely would have earned a spot in the best drama film category were it not for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's rules on foreign-language entrants.

In his acceptance speech, Bong called on the audience not to be intimidated by foreign-language films.

"Once you get over the one-inch tall barrier of subtitles, you’ll be introduced to so many amazing films," Bong said through a translator.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge for next year's Golden Globes host, please!

Canadian film critic Radheyan Simonpillai just made the suggestion I didn't even know we needed to hear: Phoebe Waller-Bridge for next year's Golden Globes host, please and thank you. After all, the 'Fleabag' star knocked her stint on 'SNL' out of the park back in the fall, and the writer-actor has yet to disappoint even in spontaneous moments of accepting awards for the work we love so much. Frankly, this is the future we all deserve. Especially when you consider the suits.

Who’s won so far…

Phoebe Waller-Bridge wins for best performance by an actress in a TV series, musical or comedy for "Fleabag"

Ramy Youssef, Russel Crowe, Stellan Skarsgard, and Succession also have won so far. Bookmark our full list of nominees and winners here. 

Stellan Skarsgard wins the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor for 'Chernobyl'

While most of us would die for the cast of "Succession" (but especially me), it can't be argued that Stellan Skarsgard didn't deserve the Globe for best supporting actor for his work as Boris Shcherbina in "Chernobyl," the HBO miniseries based on the worst nuclear disaster of the 20th century. His performance was powerful, affecting, and the type that makes it impossible to stop thinking about for days on end. And to make this moment even better, he thanked those responsible for giving him eyebrows in this role. Which, personally, is something I not only applaud, but relate to. Stellan forever!

Boar on the floor!

"Succession" wins best television series, drama!

Gervais pokes fun at Scorsese's 'The Irishman' over its running time

There's no getting around it: "The Irishman," Martin Scorsese's epic gangland saga, is long — nearly three-and-a-half hours long.

Ricky Gervais won't let anybody forget it. He has repeatedly taken aim at the movie over its mammoth running time, cracking jokes during his monologue and again during a brief introduction to a clip from the film.

"We're going to see a short clip from 'The Irishman,' and it's 88 minutes long," Gervais joked.

Russell Crowe leaves climate change message after missing the show due to 'tragedy unfolding in Australia'

Russell Crowe won the Golden Globe for best actor in a limited TV series for his role as the former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes in Showtime's "The Loudest Voice."

However, he couldn't be at the ceremony to accept the award because he is home in Australia dealing with devastating fires that have been raging for days.

But he still took the time to send a message in case he won, said actress Jennifer Aniston, who presented him with the award.

"Make no mistake. The tragedy unfolding in Australia is climate change-based. We need to act based on science, move our global workforce to renewable energy and respect our planet for the unique and amazing place it is," Aniston said on behalf of Crowe.
