Golden Globe Speeches That Will Motivate You to Conquer 2019

Aside from being one of the most prestigious awarding ceremonies in Hollywood, The Golden Globes is also a great time to celebrate people and the best talents in the entertainment world. For the 2019 Golden Globes, you can see nothing but positivity and diversity in Hollywood today! They had the first Asian host (#TeamSandraOh) and we just had our first Filipino to win a Golden Globe! We list down the most inspiring speeches from the Golden Globes this 2019

Darren Criss on Pinoy Pride and Forever Loving Your Mom

Congrats, Darren Criss! A.k.a. FIRST EVER FILIPINO TO WIN AN EMMY AND A GOLDEN GLOBE! “This has been a marvelous year for representation in Hollywood and I am so enormously proud to be a teeny-tiny part of that as the son of a firecracker Filipino woman,” Darren Criss, 31, jokes upon winning the Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television award onstage during the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards. “So, Mom, I know you are watching this. You are hugely responsible for most of the good things in my life. I love you dearly. I dedicate this to you. Congratulations to all of you. This is totally awesome! Thank you.”

Glenn Close on the Essence of a Woman

While the Golden Globes can be like the Miss Universe of Hollywood, Glenn Close (from The Wife) delivers the best answer to the age-old pageant question: what is the essence of being a woman? The winner for Best Actress in a Drama Motion Picture shares “Women, we’re nurturers, that’s what’s expected of us.We have our children. We have our husbands if we’re lucky enough, and our partners, whoever. But we have to find personal fulfillment! We have to follow our dreams, we have to say ‘I can do that and I should be allowed to do that’,” so who else is crying but also wants to work their ass off so we don’t set feminism back by 6 years?!

Sandra Oh on Saying Yes to What You Fear/Fair Representation

Aside from being the first Asian to host the Golden Globes, Sandra Oh is also this year’s winner for Best Actress for a TV Drama. She not only took pride in her win, she also acknowledged the growing diversity in Hollywood; namely the success of Crazy Rich Asians and Black Panther. During the start of the show, she literally made everyone cry. “I said yes to the fear of being on this stage tonight because I wanted to be here to look out into this audience and witness this moment of change. Next year could be different … but right now, this moment is real. Trust me, it is real”, says Sandra Oh, who is Korean and even thanked her parents on stage in Korean! Saranghe madness!

Rami Malek on Thanking the People Who Backed You Up

If you tell us that you didn’t cry when Rami Malek accepted his Best Actor award for a Drama Motion Picture for his work in Bohemian Rhapsody, you’re committing fraud. “Thank you to Freddie Mercury for giving me the joy of a lifetime. I love you, you beautiful man,” he said. “This is for and because of you, gorgeous.” He also thanked the rest of the members of Queen and the production behind the huge movie hit!

Patricia Clarkson on Having Healthy Work Environments

It’s a taboo to talk about sexual harassment, especially in the workplace. For Patricia Clarkson, actress and awardee of Best Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie Made for Television, those days of keeping your mouth shut about injustice is wayyyy over. “You demanded everything of me except sex, which is exactly how it should be in our interest,” Clarkson shares on her director Jean-Marc Vallée. In a country where some politicians are misogynistic af, this totally matters! Say no to harsh working environments and yes to pushing each other as co-workers! Let’s not forget, she reminds everyone to treat yourself when she said backstage “I’m eating bolognese tomorrow!” #YesToCarbs
