Weekend Witness - - Arts -

Man­dela: Long Walk to Free­dom, be­fore Randy moved on to in­dus­try mogul Har­vey We­in­stein, amid cheers from the ho­tel ball­room. • Emma Thomp­son, star of Sav­ing Mr Banks, came on­stage to present the Golden Globe for best screen­play bare­foot, and hold­ing her black heels in her right hand and a mar­tini in her left.

Point­ing to the bot­tom of her Chris­tian Louboutin heels she said, “I just want you to know, this red? It’s my

blood.” •A wor­ried­look­ing Jimmy Fal­lon told the guests at the cer­e­mony that his co­p­re­sen­ter, Melissa McCarthy, had been hit in the head by a fall­ing sand­bag back­stage and was now con­vinced she was Matt Da­mon. McCarthy played along, go­ing as far as to point to Da­mon’s ta­ble and say she’d rather be at home with “his” wife, “Mrs

Matt Da­mon”, than be at the Globes. • Tina Fey had the au­di­ence in stitches when she in­tro­duced The Wolf of Wall Street star Leonardo DiCaprio with the words, “And now, like a supermodel’s vagina, let’s all give a warm wel­come to Leonardo DiCaprio.” The ac­tor grinned and gave her a thumbs up when he took the mi­cro­phone. SOME 2,1 mil­lion tweets were sent dur­ing this year’s live Golden Globes show, ac­cord­ing to Peo­ple mag­a­zine.

Break­ing Bad was the source of the most talked­about mo­ments on Twit­ter. The show’s win for Best TV Drama gen­er­ated 28 117 tweets per minute (TPM), and Bryan Cranston’s Best Ac­tor win, 24 099 tweets per minute.

Jared Leto was close sec­ond. His win for best Sup­port­ing Ac­tor in a Mo­

a tion Pic­ture for Dal­las Buy­ers Club cre­ated 23 594 tweets per minute, and he was one of the most tweeted­about stars of the evening.
