Jerrod Carmichael hosts the 2023 Golden Globe Awards (2023)

The Golden Globes were back on NBC Tuesday night (January 10th), after being taken off the air in 2022 due to a lack of diversity in the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. This year’s show, which could also be streamed live on Peacock, was hosted by Jerrod Carmichael.

Addressing the issue head-on, Carmichael said of the HFPA: “I’m not saying it’s a racist organization, but it didn’t have a single Black member until George Floyd died.” He also commented on the moment he was asked to host the show, joking, “One minute you’re at home making mint tea, the next you’re invited to be the Black face of an embattled white organization.” Carmichael ended his monologue saying he was happy to be in the presence of “talented people, people I admire,” adding, “this is an evening where we get to celebrate, and I think the industry deserves evenings like this.”

The big winners of the evening included Everything Everywhere All at Once, The Fabelmans, and The Banshees of Inisherin for film and Abbott Elementary and The White Lotus for television.

Michelle Yeoh gave an emotional acceptance speech for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical for her role in Everything Everywhere All at Once, saying it’s been “an incredible fight to be here today, but I think it’s worth it,” and commenting on the discrimination she’s faced in the industry. “I remember when I first came to Hollywood,” she said. “It was a dream come true until I got here,” adding that she was told she was a “minority.” When the cut-off music came on, Yeoh told the pianist, “Shut up, please. I can beat you up, okay? And that's serious.”

Ke Huy Quan also teared up during his acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture. Thanking Steven Spielberg for his role in Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom, he said, “As I grew older, I started to wonder if that was it, if that was just luck. For so many years, I was afraid I had nothing more to offer. No matter what I did, I would never surpass what I achieved as a kid. Thankfully, more than 30 years later, two guys thought of me. They remembered that kid, and they gave me an opportunity to try again. Everything that has happened since has been unbelievable.”

Colin Farrell paid special attention to his Banshees of Inisherin costar Brandan Gleeson in his acceptance speech for Best Actor in a Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy, while Austin Butler thanked Tom Hanks, Denzel Washington, and Elvis himself in his acceptance speech for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama.

Angela Bassett remembered Chadwick Boseman in her acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture for her role in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. This win also marked the first Golden Globe ever given to a Marvel film for an acting category.

In her acceptance speech for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy, Quinta Brunson owned her success. “I have to say thank you to to Disney, 20th Century, Warner Brothers, thank you for believing in this show about a group of teachers from Philadelphia. It has resonated with the world in a way that I couldn't even imagine it would've. But let's be real, I did imagine it, that's why I sold it to you,” she said.

Sean Penn brought attention to events in Iran and Afghanistan before introducing a video message from Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. “There will be no third world war,” Zelensky said in the video. “It is not a trilogy. Ukraine will stop the Russian aggression on our land.”

Presenters for the night included Jennifer Hudson, Jennifer Coolidge, Jenna Ortega, Niecy Nash-Betts, Ana de Armas, Claire Danes, Letitia Wright, Henry Golding, Hilary Swank, and Quentin Tarantino.

Billy Porter presented Ryan Murphy with the Carol Burnett Award for Achievement in Television, and Murphy spent most of his acceptance speech honoring the careers of Billy Porter, Michaela Jae “MJ” Rodriguez, Niecy Nash-Betts, and Jeremy Pope. “It’s hard being an LGBTQ kid in America. In fact, all over the world, then and now. And I have one word for you: Florida,” Murphy said. “You are often told you will never become anything. You have to hide your life to survive. But for those kids watching tonight, I offer up MJ and Billy and Niecy and Matt and Jeremy as examples of possibility. There is a way forward, use them as your North stars.”

Tracy Morgan and Jamie Lee Curtis honored Eddie Murphy with the Cecil B. DeMille Award, and during his acceptance speech, the Trading Places star shared that he’s been in the business for 46 years. He also stole the show with the conclusion of his speech, sharing his “simple” steps to success: “Just do these three things: Pay your taxes, mind your business and keep Will Smith’s wife’s name out your f*cking mouth.”

  • “Wow. Thank you so much to the Hollywood foreign press. Everyone at Netflix and MRC. I'm overwhelmed. I'm so grateful to be here with all of you playing Ruth for the last few years has just been the greatest gift in my life. I want to thank Chris Mundy, our wonderful show runner. Jason Bateman, Laura Linney, and our wonderful cast and crew that just became our family and unconditional love all around. Thank you for keeping everyone's hearts safe, my heart safe. I want to say thank you to my team who's been with me for years, my husband Mark, I love you. And, yeah, I love all of you guys and I admire all of you guys and I share this with all of you guys thank you so much. Applause” :59 OC…you so much Applause

Ryan Murphy accepts the Carol Burnett for Achievement in Television

  • “Thank you, thank you. Okay here's how I'd like to start. A year ago the golden globes weren't televised, but the show did go on. And I was so thrilled when it was announced that MJ Rodriguez from my show “Pose” had been awarded best actress in a drama series applause In doing so, mj from Newark, new Jersey, became the first trans actress ever to win a golden globe. Applause And I thought, wow, how I would have loved for mj to be on this stage getting the standing ovation she deserved for making history. And I'm thrilled to say that MJ is one of my guests tonight. She's here at my table so, MJ, please stand up and let's give her the ovation that she deserves. Applause So I had the joy of working with and directing Carol Burnett on “Glee” long ago. She's one of my idols. And tonight's award made me reflect on what a lifetime of achievement really is. You get there, I think, by being fearless like these following people who are here tonight, all heroes of mine and I'm going to start by talking about the amazing achievement Billy Porter's entire life has been applause Growing up in Pittsburgh, Billy was constantly told he was not worthy said Billy “but I demanded to be seen as a three-dimensional human being, the work dried out” but Billy porter kept at it and now he's one of the most iconic actors of his generation with two Tony's, a grammy, and more to show for it, Billy porter has changed our perceptions by changing fashion. He did this. He's the one who ushered in this new movement by wearing a black velvet tuxedo gown on the Oscars red carpet. I asked him to wear that outfit tonight and he said, Bleep it's in a museum. Laughter But he whipped up this fuchsia replica for me cheers and applause and I love it, and I love him. I also think tonight of the achievements of Niecy Nash's life. Born in L.A., a mother of three, she was told only a couple of years ago when she wanted to marry the love of her life Jessica that she couldn't, shouldn't do that. She might never work again, and her community and industry would abandon her. Niecy Nash chose love, not fear. Tonight, she is golden globe nominee niecy nash-betts and she has the biggest year of her entire career. Niecy Nash, I love you. Just like niecy, Matt Bomer of spring, Texas, was told as a young man with big dreams to never come out to lie. The audience might not believe you as an actor. Well, to me, Matt is an action hero in life he has now defied the ridiculous roles that have been in place for almost a century he's played the action star in the romantic lead and been in acclaimed dramatic projects along the way winning a golden globe for my movie “The normal heart.” I love you thank you for being here for me. Applause And although he is very young, the achievements of Jeremy pope astound me applause From Orlando, Florida, Jeremy was also told growing up to deny who he was but Jeremy refused to hide he has been nominated for a Tony award twice in one year. Was nominated for lead actor Emmy for my show “Hollywood. And tonight is nominated for a golden globe for “The inspection” and then hopefully on to a well-deserved Oscar nomination Jeremy pope is the future. Applause I have dedicated most of my lifetime achievement speech here tonight to these wonderful actors I worked with to make a point of hope and progress when I was a young person at home in the '70s watching “The Carol Burnett show,” I never ever saw a person like me getting an award or even being a character on a TV show it's hard being an lgbtq kid in America. In fact, all over the world then and now. And I have one word for you, Florida. You are often told you will never become anything, you have to hide your light to survive. But for those kids watching, tonight I offer up mj and Billy and niecy and Matt and Jeremy as examples of possibility. Cheers and applause there is a way forward use them as your north stars for 25 years, that's all I've ever tried to do here in Hollywood. My mission was to take the invisible, the unloved, and make them the heroes I long to see but never did in pop culture and I would like to thank the architects of my wonderful, crazy career Brian lord, Kevin uvane, Simon hall, Joe Cohen, Harley Newman, and also none of the shows that I've made that have attempted to change hearts and minds all over the world would have been made without the love and vision support of Dana Walden and John wanegraf where are you? You are somewhere. And I'd also like to say thank you to my team that keeps the trains running on time I would be remiss if I didn't mention the incredible, iconic talents who have bet on me repeatedly through thick and thin, Jessica Lang, Julia Roberts, lady gaga, Leslie Grossman, Billy lord, Sarah Paulson, Gwyneth paltrow and for the special people who I love and are in this room tonight, Jamie Lee Curtis, Angela Bassett and Courtney B. Vance, Carl Barclay, Ian Brennan, Alexis martin Jennifer Coolidge, Richard Jenkins, and the incredible Evan Peters then there's my family who I love very much, my better half, David Miller Dana and Matt Walden, Bart brown, and my children, I can't believe I get to say that on stage, Logan, Ford, and griffin. Thank you to the Hollywood foreign press, to Ryan robins, my first director. To Brad Pitt and gardener, my first producers. And to Steven Spielberg who bought my very first script “Back when god was a boy,” years ago. Lastly, one of the most incredible things about working with Carol Burnett is you could ask her anything one day we were sitting around during a lighting setup. And I asked her why she tugs her ear at the end of every show, what did that mean she laughed and said it was a secret signal to her beloved grandmother who wanted to say hi and all is good. So this is for Myrtle. Thank you Applause” 8:08 OC…Myrtle thank you Applause
