The Golden Globe Gaffe...That Wasn't

posted by Vinnie Penn -

The 75th Golden Globes was a sight to behold, especially as it tirelessly endeavored to deliver a powerful, concerted message about and from women, addressing sexual harassment and gender inequity. 

From Debra Messing calling out the E! network - while on E! no less - for paying known E! star Catt Sadler half of what her lesser known male co-anchor makes to Oprah's rousing "Time's up" speech when receiving the Cecil B. DeMille award, it was not short on drama. 

HBO's "Big Little Lies" was a big winner, which is somewhat ironic, as it's all about an abusive husband. The actor who played this incredibly complex character, Alexander Skarsgard, took to the stage for his win, and is now being taken to task for referring to his co-stars as - gasp! - "girls." 

Keep in mind, he refers to them as women as the speech begins, when the tone is very humble yet serious, but when he singles out Nicole Kidman, who also won, for playing his battered wife, he haphazardly tries to clarify why he's singling her out, saying, "Not that you're better than the other girls...it's just, most of my scenes were with Nicole." Technically, he didn't even finish saying the word "girls," as the crowd began laughing. Watch. And scoff at the backlash.
