Critics Consensus

Although some may find the ceremony's #MeToo moments more pandering than sincere, host Seth Meyers' willingness to cede the spotlight leaves room for plenty of standout moments -- including a show stopping Oprah Winfrey.

Critic Reviews for Golden Globes 75th Golden Globe Awards

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (22)

These awards, and this presentation of them, reflected how awards work in general. They're weirdly powerful... and if you can seize the moment in which the spotlight settles on you, you might get something done.

It was a hit-or-miss monologue, as Meyers imported the "Jokes Seth Can't Tell" segment from his "Late Night" show to mixed results. But his hits were good.

You probably knew that Oprah Winfrey would bring her own potentially presidential vibe to her Cecil B. DeMille award acceptance, but who expected an outbreak of dignity everywhere else?

[Meyers] delivered a damn fine and exceptionally funny performance under raw, delicate conditions, but this was Oprah's Golden Globes, and no one was going to take it away from her and the women she championed.

At the most recent Golden Globes, hosted by Seth Meyers, black dresses were worn and agents were thanked, but the night had a gangly, electric feel to it.

Seth Meyers superbly rose to the occasion -- he found the right comic balance, paying respects to this tectonic-shift moment in our cultural history without trying to deny the Globes' essential ridiculousness.

The celebratory "we fixed sexism" tone too often felt premature. There is still much work to be done. It is rude to roll out the buffet table before the funeral service has concluded.

The easy windup-punchline formula of a good, ol'-fashioned showbiz roast naturally didn't fit a reality where show business is suddenly allied with farmworkers and activists in a struggle that goes far beyond a few statues.

If you want a "feminist" host at a moment in time that is specifically focused on past discrimination and future empowerment, here's a suggestion: HIRE A FREAKING WOMAN. That being said, Seth Meyers -- as I and many saw it -- did a fantastic job.

It felt like a cultural moment, actually necessary. For the most part, the nearly three-and-a-half hour-long show felt rewarding, too, filled with enough scorching moments to heat up a bleak night and even bleaker time in that industry and our culture.

Winfrey not only paid homage to women who have suffered and are finally being heard, she delivered a stemwinder of a speech that made it sound like she was getting ready to run for office.

In accepting the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award, Oprah tied her life story to America's race and class struggles and the #MeToo movement and left many of Hollywood's elites in tears... This was an awards show unlike any other.
