Golden Globes Over the Years: 10 Greatest Moments of All Time
You can always count on a wild, strange, and most importantly, unforgettable night when it comes to the Golden Globes. Here are the 10 greatest awards show moments over the years.

We’ve lost big stars like Chadwick Boseman and Sean Connery since last year’s Golden Globes, so some viewers understandably expect an In Memoriam segment during today’s event.

However, unlike the Oscars and SAG Awards, the Globes haven’t held an In Memoriam in recent years. And because the segment was “really well handled” by others, the Globes didn’t spend time on it, producer Barry Adelman told PEOPLE in 2017.

The Globes still honor movie and television stars on their website. Recent entries honored Cloris Leachman, Christopher Plummer, Cicely Tyson, John le Carré and Connery.

One major exception came in 2017 when the Globes mourned the sudden death of Debbie Reynolds and her daughter Carrie Fisher, a few weeks before this year’s ceremony.

Last year’s host Ricky Gervais even joked about the lack of an In Memoriam segment during his monologue.

“We wanted to do an In Memoriam this year, but when I saw the list of people who died it wasn’t diverse enough. It was mostly white people and I thought, ‘No, not on my watch.’ Maybe next year. We’ll see what happens, “said the comedian.

The 78th Annual Golden Globe Awards ceremony will be streamed live on NBC from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles tonight at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT.
