RANKED! The Best Acceptance Speeches of the 2020 Golden Globes

Well, that was interesting. Like every year, the 2020 Golden Globes was full of funny, touching, and awkward moments — and we haven’t even gotten to the acceptance speeches yet. The winners are only given a limited amount of time to thank everyone and say all the things they’ve ever wanted to say since they were little kids: “Thank you, mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, and cousin Vinny.” This year, instead of focusing on themselves (or fictional characters played by Joe Pesci), a lot of the winners drew attention to various things happening in our society (although some still went the traditional route). We’ve ranked the best of those tender moments while ignoring Ricky Gervais’ gold standard for speeches: accept your award, thank your agent and your god, and fuck off.
