The 78th Golden Globes took place Sunday.
The show was semi-virtual with live presenters and guests appearing virtually.
Here are some of the best memes and tweets about the show.
The Golden Globes are notoriously Hollywood's messiest awards show, and last night's semi-virtual event with live presenters and virtual guests appearing from around the world provided viewers with a chest of material for some stellar memes and tweets that highlight the unique but entertaining absurdity of Hollywood award shows.
From interesting wardrobe choices to disconcerting Zoom backgrounds, keep reading for some of the best memes from this year's Golden Globe Awards.
The obligatory Jason Derulo falling meme
Many years ago, an unidentified man fell down the stairs outside the Palais de Festival at the Cannes Film Festival. And since around 2015, for random albeit comedic purposes, this tragic image has been attributed to the RnB singer turned TikTok star Jason Derulo.
As the red carpet images flood in from any awards show, someone is certain to inform the world of the unfortunate news that Jason Derulo has fallen down the stairs. And despite the fact this year's Golden Globes were a semi-virtual ceremony, social media did not take a day off.

Jason Sudeikis' tie-died hoodie
Jason Sudeikis turned up to the virtual Golden Globes in an unconventional, more relaxed look. The comedian-actor sported a tie-died hoodie as he picked up the award for best actor in a television series musical or comedy for his sports comedy "Ted Lasso."
Keen observers pointed out that Sudeikis's relaxed look matched how many people have suited up during the pandemic but also fit the description of someone who is going through a public divorce, which, of course, he is.
His former partner actor-turned-director Olivia Wilde is reportedly dating ex-One Direction singer Harry Styles. The memes ensued.

Jeff Daniels's surreal home of doors
Jeff Daniels also opted for a casual Golden Globes look.
The veteran actor was nominated for "The Comey Rule" and appeared in a sturdy plaid button-down shirt but it was his odd suburban surroundings that piqued the internet's interest.
Daniels appeared to be completely outflanked by multiple closet doors that gave his virtual background a real dystopian, David Lynchian look as he cheerfully watched the ceremony.

Gillian Anderson's transatlantic accent
Gillian Anderson picked up the award for best supporting actress in a series for her acclaimed portrayal of British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in Netflix's "The Crown." And viewers were excited to see which accent Anderson — who is now famous for her unique mix of British and American inflections — would use during her acceptance speech.
She chose American.

Bill Murray's Hawaiian shirt and wholesome energy
Bill Murray's wholesome virtual set-up provided a lot of laughs. The legendary actor was nominated for his role in Sofia Coppola's comedy caper "On The Rocks" and he logged into the awards ceremony in a bright Hawaiian shirt.
Murray was also placed extremely close to his camera, which gave audiences a look at his beautiful surroundings as he spent much of the show smiling endearingly and drinking a martini.

Olivia Colman's reactions to her co-stars winning awards
Olivia Colman has become a sort of contemporary awards veteran. Over the years she has picked up three Golden Globes and an Oscar for her acclaimed work.
Last night, however, Colman went home empty-handed but this didn't seem to dampen her mood as she spent the entirety of the evening excitedly cheering on her castmates from "The Crown."
"The Crown" dominated the TV categories picking up four awards including best Drama TV series.

Donald Sutherland's stoic expressions
Hollywood veteran Donald Sutherland did appear in a more traditional black tuxedo but he appeared to be completely un-amused during the virtual globes. Sutherland's expressions remained unflinchingly stoic throughout the ceremony.
The 85-year-old actor was nominated for his supporting role in HBO's whodunit thriller "The Undoing" but ultimately lost out to John Boyega who won for his role in Steve McQueen's "Small Axe" series.

Al Pacino sleeping during the ceremony
The consensus on whether this year's virtual Golden Globes was a success is yet to be decided, but the legendary actor Al Pacino seemed to offer his conclusion as he was caught dozing off during the ceremony.
Pacino was pictured completely knocked out as John O' Connor picked up his best actor award beating out Pacino who was nominated for the Jordan Peele produced thriller "Hunters." The footage seemed to echo a shot of Martin Scorsese falling asleep during Eminem's performance at the 2020 Oscars.
