The 2017 Golden Globes aired Sunday night (January 8), and it was absolutely the ladies’ evening. Yes, the dudes were there and they were fine, but it was the women who created the buzziest moments and gave the most moving speeches. (I’m still crying over Meryl Streep’s Lifetime Achievement Speech, to be honest. And when Emma Stone dedicated her speech to dreamers?! Too many feels to list here.)
The women who attended Golden Globes 2017 seemed obsessed with each other, too. From female-empowering moments on the red carpet to bestie moments in the audience, it was so exciting to see women cheering on other women this evening. We need more of that in the world, to be honest.
These nine moments particularly warmed our hearts. Check them out, below. Then, see all the latest Golden Globes 2017 news here.
When Sophie Turner helped Maisie Williams with her dress and confirmed she is the ultimate best friend.
This adorable moment between Anna Chlumsky and Tracee Ellis Ross.
The fact that Busy Phillips and Michelle Williams walked the red carpet together.
And so did Simone Biles and Madison Kocian.
When best friends Sarah Paulson and Amanda Peet shared a kiss on the red carpet.
When Paulson gave a shout-out to Marcia Clark during her acceptance speech.
Obsessed with their friendship.
Viola Davis presenting Meryl Streep with the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award.
“You make me proud to be an artist,” she said. “You make me feel that what I have in me—my body, my face, my age—is enough. You encapsulate that great Emile Zola quote that if you ask me as an artist what I came into this world to do, I, an artist, would say I came to live out loud.”
And then Streep referencing so many women during her Lifetime Achievement Award acceptance speech.
She talked about and praised the stories of Davis, Sarah Paulson, Amy Adams, Sarah Jessica Parker, and several other actresses like the queen she is. Streep also teared up at the end of her speech when she talked about the late Carrie Fisher. It was a beautiful, devastating moment filled with heart and gravitas. Leave it to Streep to make her Lifetime Achievement Award speech about her female peers. That’s how it’s done, my friends.
Annnd when Chrissy Metz and Mandy Moore held hands during the reading of the nominations for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series, or Motion Picture Made for Television. (They were both nominated!)
So much lady love! Our hearts are soaring!
