Lady Gaga, Sam Smith, Surprises Highlight The Golden Globe Awards

"That award is, no offense, worthless."

The Golden Globes are always the most unpredictable awards show of the year, as the Hollywood Foreign Press routinely veers off the beaten path to reward TV shows and theatrical films that otherwise might be overlooked.

This year saw more of those surprises (Mozart In The Jungle?) alongside with some more obvious choices (Leonardo DiCaprio, Brie Larson), making for an eclectic collection of winners.

Host Ricky Gervais was hit-or-miss, making Caitlyn Jenner jokes (“She didn’t do a lot for women drivers”), while skewering the very existence of the Golden Globes.

“That award is, no offense, worthless,” he announced. “It’s a bit of metal that some nice old confused journalists wanted to give you in person so they could meet you and have a selfie with you.”

Some highlights:

Ricky: “Of course women should be paid the same as men. I’m getting paid the same as Tina and Amy did last year. I know there was two of them, but it’s not my fault if they want to share the money.”

Matt Damon won for The Martian, and publicly thanked his wife. So much for mystery.

Sam Smith wins for “Writing’s On The Wall.” Could we be seeing another Bond theme win at the Oscars?

Taraji P. Henson won for Empire, and gave out actual cookies on her way to the podium.

Lady Gaga won, and Leonardo DiCaprio could only bathe in her wake.
