The Golden Globes

[Content Note: Transphobia; rape.]

Last night was the Golden Globes, and I didn't watch, because Ricky Gervais was hosting and I don't like rape jokes. Nor transphobic jokes, which I hear there were a lot of, too. What a super fun person he is.

This was the sum total of my Golden Globes tweeting:

image of a tweet authored by me reading: 'Flipped to Golden Globes for one second; saw Paul Feig fake-laughing at something; figured it won't get any better than that; turned it off.'

image of a tweet authored by me reading: 'So Ricky Gervais just introduced Mel Gibson with a Bill Cosby rape joke? Yeah, that sounds about right. ' and accompanied by the image of a dumpster fire

Anyway. The complete list of winners is here. Please feel free to discuss the winners, the losers, the broadcast, how terrible Ricky Gervais is, or whatever.
