This year was the 75th anniversary of the Golden Globes, an annual award ceremony to honor the best in American film and television. The event, hosted by Seth Meyers, was broadcast live by NBC and online streaming services such as Sling TV, YouTube TV, among others.
But in case you missed the program Sunday night, Twitter was there to save the day. Celebrities and fans alike took to the social media platform to re-cap the night, so everyone could find out who said what (and who didn’t say what).
With recent events in the television and film world, attendees to the ceremony wanted to make a statement by wearing all black and even got some hashtags like #TimesUp trending.

The hashtags #TimesUp, #WhyWeWereBlack and #MeToo were of the most used throughout the night.
Oprah Winfrey says "it was very important to all of us involved with #TimesUp that it not just be about the women of Hollywood" because "there isn't a culture, a race, a religion, a politic, a workplace that hasn’t been affected by it." https://t.co/TPBw7Q2F00 pic.twitter.com/Gb92gmJ1Wi

In her acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award, Oprah Winfrey held nothing back and brought down the house.
It may look like a lot of people spoke out about the political and social movements last night, but many people stayed silent.
Not one dude Golden Globes Winner talked about the #MeToo movement in his speech. Knowing this industry their publicists probably told them it would be better for them. Men feminism literally CAN NOT succeed without us. It’s time for us to #stepup #timesup #goldenglobes pic.twitter.com/9Ylqy1Tv53

The awards ceremony wasn’t all serious, however. Viewers did get to see cringeworthy, yet honest moments like Natalie Portman throwing shade on national television.
