The 30 Funniest Twitter Reactions to the 2024 Golden Globes

The 81st Golden Globes ceremony has officially kicked off 2024’s award season.

With comedian Jo Koy hosting the event and a guest list brimming with stars like Jennifer Lopez, Emma Stone, and Meryl Streep, it’s only natural the night would produce some of the most memorable moments we’ll be reliving all year long. (See: Koy’s painfully awkward opening monologue, Taylor Swift’s reaction to a distasteful joke about her relationship, and an unexpected Kylie Jenner cameo.)

Even while we’re tuned in to the show, we’re also usually refreshing X (formerly known as Twitter) more or less continuously, to catch all of the best live reactions to the night’s most attention-grabbing moments.

Scroll ahead to see the 30 funniest Twitter reactions to the 2024 Golden Globes.


Jo Koy’s awkward opening monologue left many viewers at home cringing.

Swifties noticed that Taylor seemed less than pleased by Koy poking fun at her NFL game appearances.

In happier news, Swift’s reunion with BFF Selena Gomez of course went viral.

Kylie Jenner attending the Globes as Timothée Chalamet’s plus-one seemed to at last legitimize their romance in the eyes of many X users.

Other surprising couple news of the night? Ali Wong and Bill Hader made their relationship Golden Globes official tonight, too.

X users were just as surprised as Elizabeth Debicki to hear the announcer unexpectedly say her name in the middle of the presenters’ speech.

Ayo Edebiri gave a heartwarming shout-out to Hollywood assistants in her acceptance speech for her first-ever Golden Globe win.
