The Best Golden Globes Memes, Including Al Pacino's Nap and That Jamie Lee Curtis Dress

The 78th Golden Globes was a bizarre part-virtual ceremony that provided an array of both awkward and touching moments and of course spawned thousands of memes, hot takes and reactions from bemused viewers.

When before award ceremonies biggest issues were falling over or reading out the wrong title for Best Picture, now we have slow Wi-Fi, lagging Zoom connections, muted audio and wardrobe quandaries to contend with.

Big wins on the night include Netflix's The Crown and Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, which saw the late Chadwick Boseman posthumously awarded Best Actor for his role in the film.

While Daniel Kaluuya won Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role for Judas and the Black Messiah, and John Boyega won Best Supporting Actor in a TV Series for his role in Steve McQueen's Small Axe.

Schitt's Creek, still riding high from cleaning up at the Emmy Awards, netted wins for best series and best actress for Catherine O'Hara.

For the controversial Borat 2, Sacha Baron Cohen took home the top comedy accolades—and he made sure to thank his co-star Rudy Giuliani.

The Queen's Gambit, the platform's most-watched miniseries to date, took home the top prize for limited series and delivered star Anya Taylor-Joy her very first Golden Globe.

There were several delightful and awkward moments that viewers latched on to on Twitter, rewarding social media users with hilarious memes.
