Everyone knows the Golden Globes suck ass (as do the Emmys, the MTV Movie/Music Video Awards, the Grammys, and basically every other awards show celebrities seem to be turning up to out of obligation rather than desire), but there were a few highlights during last night’s ceremony. For one thing, Leonardo DiCaprio finally won a damn award, this time for his performance in The Revenant (which was really, really good, by the way). But perhaps even bigger news was the hubbub that arose when Lady Gaga won for her role on American Horror Story, passing Leo’s chair and causing him to make a face that’s been interpreted to high heavens despite it being literally no big deal.
If you live under some giant boulder and somehow missed this, have a look for yourself:
Many people tried to claim that Leo made that face because he and Gaga are “feuding”, never mind the fact that they’ve likely never met and wouldn’t run in the same circles in any way, shape, or form. Other people just thought it was hilarious, which… I mean, I guess? If your bar of what’s funny is set pretty low, I guess looking surprised because someone bumped your chair will elicit a belly laugh or whatever.
Such was the chatter about this non-event that Leo felt the need to speak out about it, telling Entertainment Tonight, “Oh lord – that’s trending, huh? I just didn’t know what was passing me, that’s all.”
That’s all, indeed. Can we please stop the bullshit now?
