Golden Globes 2020: ‘That’s just poor sportsmanship’: Beyonce is slammed for failing to give Joaquin Phoenix a standing ovation when he won a gong on Sunday at the Beverly Hilton hotel
Twitter’s Sam Stryker, shared a picture of the moment and wrote: ‘Beyoncé sitting during the standing ovation for Joaquin Phoenix’s win is the type of energy I want to see from everyone in 2020.’
Beyonce herself, had been up for Best Original Song – Motion Picture, for her The Lion King track Spirit, but she lost out to Rocketman, for the song, (I’m Gonna) Love Me Again, Rocketman.
Earlier in the night, she failed to walk the red carpet during the Globes and turned up one hour late.
Others wrote on Twitter: ‘@Beyonce You’re a joke for not standing up for Joaquin Phoenix. Understandable to make a statement. But that’s just poor sportsmanship for someone that actually deserved recognition. You’re entitled and arrogant. And as an actress you’re a joke. Smh. You ought to apologize to him.’
Acclaimed: Joaquin, 45, won Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama for The Joker
Wow: Joker follows mentally troubled comedian Arthur Fleck who is mistreated by society leading him into a downward spiral with the eventual path of becoming his super-villain alter-ego
‘Beyoncé sitting during the standing ovation for Joaquin Phoenix’s win is the type of energy I want to see from everyone in 2020.’
‘Beyoncé isn’t anyone important. I’m happy Joaquin won!’
‘Yes, that is Joaquin Phoenix, who won a Golden Globe tonight for his role as the Joker in ‘Joker’, something Beyoncé did not do.’
Others didn’t have a problem with it and wrote:
‘Hoes mad because Beyonce didnt stand for Joaquin Phoenix but they fail to realize it was literally out of respect. Her big ass dress would’ve blocked the view and distracted from his moment. Yall are disgusting.’
‘Joaquin Phoenix just did a speech about global warming and how celebrities should start doing changes themselves personally instead of putting the responsibility in other people and then clean their hands. But somehow Beyonce not giving him a standing ovation is more important…’
Need a new watch? Beyonce arrived an hour late to the bash and didn’t walk the red carpet, but naturally had time to pose for photos with her husband Jay Z
You win some, you lose some: She sadly did not win the Best Original Song for Spirit, her Lion King track
‘Ii know y’all are not hating on beyoncé just because she didn’t stand up for joaquin when he won get over yourselves.’
The Joker has become the highest box office earning R-rated film of all-time: Joker.
Joaquin showed that he still has a penchant for mischief as he kept the censors busy with his profanity-laden acceptance speech which began: ‘Contrary to popular belief, I don’t want to rock the boat. But the boat is f***ing rocked!’
He went on to address the fires in Australia and ongoing climate crisis as he urged Hollywood to do better like ‘not taking privates to Palm Springs.’
Phoenix then got choked up while mentioning fiancée Rooney Mara and those in attendance as he ended his speech: ‘Rooney, I love you. I’m so grateful for this night and all of you. Thank you.’
Joker follows mentally troubled comedian Arthur Fleck who is mistreated by society leading him into a downward spiral with the eventual path of becoming his super-villain alter-ego.
Not OK! Twitter really had some things to say about Beyonce’s silent statement
Meanwhile, it has been 16 years since Renee Zellweger came home with a Golden Globe and it has been even longer for Brad Pitt who last won in 1996.
But the two veteran stars changed their fortunes in yet another great Hollywood comeback story.
The 56-year-old actor earned Best Actor in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture at the star-studded event held at the Beverly Hills Hilton on Sunday night before his film Once Upon A Time In Hollywood earned top honor Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.
Zellweger, 50, then won for her role in Judy Garland biopic Judy in one of the most contentious categories of the night: Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama.
She last won Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture for Cold Mountain in 2004 while it has been 24-years since Pitt won Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture for his work in Twelve Monkeys.
We don’t mind a bit: Some people agreed with Beyonce’s decision to stay seated
Zellweger faced stiff-competition including: Cynthia Erivo (Harriet), Scarlett Johansson (Marriage Story), Saoirse Ronan (Little Women), and Charlize Theron (Bombshell).
In her speech she showed respect to her fellow nominees as she said: ‘Well hi, everybody. It’s nice to see you. You all look pretty good, 17 years later. Thank you to the HFPA for inviting me back to the family reunion, especially with all these extraordinary ladies this year.
‘Your work moves me, and I’ve been cheering for y’all from theater seats for a long time.’
Judy follows legendary performer Judy Garland after she arrives in London in the winter of 1968 to perform a series of sold out concert.
During his speech, Brad had the attention of the crowd as he also paid tribute to his co-star Leonardo DiCaprio while making a Titanic joke as he said: ‘I also have to thank my partner in crime, LDC…. he’s an all star, he’s a gent. I wouldn’t be here without you, man. I thank you. Still, I would have shared the raft.’

He concluded the fun acceptance speech with a sweet humanitarian message by saying: ‘Hey, if you see an opportunity to be kind to someone tomorrow, take it. I think we all need it.’
Pitt beat out A-list talent including: Tom Hanks (A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood), Anthony Hopkins (The Two Popes), Al Pacino (The Irishman), and Joe Pesci (The Irishman).
His big award was one of three earned by Once Upon A Time In Hollywood including Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.
Producer David Heyman accepted the prize as he revealed that director and writer Quentin Tarantino told him he would be representing the cast and crew on the grand stage as he said: ‘Quentin is nothing if unpredictable. A few seconds ago he told me I was going to speak.’
Tarantino also won for Best Screenplay earlier in the night.
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood tells the story of TV star Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Pitt), who make their way around an industry they hardly recognize anymore.
Humble: Tarantino also won for Best Screenplay earlier in the night
Sam Mendes’ war epic 1917 was the top winner in the dramatic film categories as it earned the last award of the night: Best Motion Picture – Drama.

British filmmaker Mendes, 53, also won Best Director – Motion Picture earlier in the night.
Phoebe Waller-Bridge was also one of the biggest winners of the night on the television end as she took home two top awards for Fleabag.
As former US President Barack Obama recently put the BBC/Amazon show on his list of favorite movies and music of 2019, the 34-year-old British star made a hilarious joke for fans while accepting one of the top honors of the night; Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy.

During her speech, she referenced a racy scene from the first season of the groundbreaking series in which her character masturbated to Obama delivering a keynote speech to Parliament in 2011.
She said: ‘Personally, I’d like to thank Obama for putting us on his list and as some of you may know, he’s always been on mine. And if you don’t get that joke, watch season one of Fleabag really, really quickly! Thank you so much.’
It was yet another milestone night for the star as Waller-Bridge also earned Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy for the comedy series.
During that speech, the star paid tribute to co-star Andrew Scott when she first hit the podium to accept her award.
After celebrating with a kiss on the cheek during the announcement, the writer, director and actress dedicated the win to Scott as she joked that the 43-year-old Irish actor; ‘could have chemistry with a pebble.’
Flower power: Laura Dern was also a big winner as she won Best Actress in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture for her role in Netflix’s A Marriage Story
She said: ‘Oh my God. Thank you so much to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for this, it’s really heavy and cool.
‘This really comes down to Andrew Scott really because that man, there was a lot of talk about the chemistry between us in the show but he could have chemistry with a pebble and Id loved being Andrew’s pebble in this, thanks for bringing so much fire to this season.’
She faced heavy-competition including: Christina Applegate (Dead to Me), Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Kirsten Dunst (On Becoming a God in Central Florida), and Natasha Lyonne (Russian Doll).
Waller-Bridge portrays the titular character in the groundbreaking series – which she adapted from an award-winning play – as it follows a young woman trying to cope with life in London while coming to terms with a recent tragedy.

Earlier in the night, Russell Crowe was absent as he was announced as the winner of the Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television award.
Then 55-year-old actor was given the honor for his work portraying controversial Fox News executive Roger Ailes in Showtime limited series The Loudest Voice.
However he opted not to attend the gala as he stayed in Australia, where he has lived most of his life, to aid with the wildfires that have ravaged the country.
He did, however, send a very pointed statement about climate change which presenter Jennifer Aniston read.
It said: ‘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 & amazing place it is.’

Australia’s wildfires have burned about 12.35 million acres of land and destroyed over 1,400 homes. The death toll has reached 24 people.
Crowe was up against against Sam Rockwell (Fosse/Verdon), Christopher Abbott (Catch-22), Jared Harris (Chernobyl) and Sacha Baron Cohen (The Spy).
In seven-part limited series, The Loudest Voice, Crowe portrayed the now-late Ailes who founded Fox News and focuses on the decade in which he arguably became the Republican Party’s de facto leader and sexual harassment accusations which eventually brought his career to and end.
Succession was named Best Television Series – Drama.
The HBO series beat out competition from Big Little Lies, The Crown, Killing Eve, and The Morning Show to take the coveted honor at the annual ceremony.
Showrunner Jesse Armstrong by a number of members of cast and crew of the show but gave thanks on behalf of the whole team as he said: ‘Thank you very much, to the HFPA, to HBO for their tremendous support.

‘For everyone else working on the show, it’s a TV show and I’m here as a representative to represent all of us, so if you’ve ever appeared on the call sheet or titles of Succession, congratulations, we’ve won a Golden Globe.’
Stellan Skarsgård earned Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for his work on HBO limited series Chernobyl.
The 68-year-old Swedish actor cut his speech short as he paid tribute to the make-up artist who created his eyebrows as quipped: ‘”Stellan, I’ve seen so many films with you but I never remember your face.” And I realised it was because I don’t have any eyebrows, nobody can tell if I’m angry or surprised, it’s not like Colin Farrell. You can tell if he’s angry 20 miles away. So for this film, Daniel Park made a couple of eyebrows for me and…’
Ramy Yusef was the first to earn a win at the event as he was presented Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy for his work in Hulu series Ramy.
He’s back: Ricky Gervais opened up the show with his signature controversial brand of comedy
The first-time nominee joked he was not only unrecognizable to anyone in the audience, but his mother had wanted him to lose to The Kominsky Method’s Michael Douglas, who was also on the shortlist alongside Barry’s Bill Hader, Paul Rudd (Living With Yourself), and Ben Platt (The Politician).
Director and writer Bong Joon Ho accepted Best Motion Picture, Foreign Language for Parasite.
Ricky Gervais opened up the show with his signature controversial brand of comedy as he blasted ‘woke’ Hollywood for being hypocritical and told them to ‘collect your award and f**k off.’
During his monologue, Gervais makes a pointed remark about Jeffrey Epstein while comparing the Netflix show Afterlife to the three-hour long award ceremony.
‘[Afterlife] is a show about a man who wants to kill himself because his wife died of cancer and it’s still more fun than this. Spoiler alert, season two is on the way so he didn’t kill himself…just like Jeffrey Epstein,’ he said to the gasping audience.
‘Shut up,’ he says, ‘I know he’s your friend, but I don’t care.’
Gervais then cautioned the star-studded crowd against making their acceptance speeches political.
‘You say you’re woke, but the companies you work for are unbelievable. Apple, Amazon, Disney – If ISIS started a streaming service you’d call your agent wouldn’t you. So if you do win an award tonight don’t use it as a platform to make a political speech, he said.
He also claimed that Apple, who began their streaming site this year, used ‘sweatshops’ to make produce their products.
‘You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything. You know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg. So if you win, come up, accept your little award, thank your agent and your god and then f**k off.’
Gervais’ joke was met with laughter, but may have ruffled Apple’s Tim Cook as the CEO sat in the audience Sunday night.
It is the fifth time the 58-year-old comedian has emceed the gala as he has done previously from 2010 to 2012 and once again in 2016.
Tom Hanks and Ellen DeGeneres also received special honors for their work in their respective fields.
Hanks, 63, earned the Cecil B. DeMille Award which is an accolade for the film industry.
He has won four Golden Globes including for his acting in Big, Philadelphia, and Forrest Gump along with his directing for HBO miniseries Band Of Brothers.
DeGeneres, 61, earned the Carol Burnett Award which is the television equivalent of the DeMille Award but focuses on television.
The talk show host has won multiple Emmys and nominated for three Golden Globes. She has hosted her talk show – The Ellen DeGeneres Show – since 2003.
