Michelle Yeoh’s historic win. Quinta Brunson fangirling over Brad Pitt mid acceptance speech. The icon that is Jennifer Coolidge. It all happened at the 80th Golden Globes last night.

The 80th Golden Globes was certainly one for the history books. After 40 years in Hollywood, Michelle Yeoh was finally recognised by the awards for her role in Everything Everywhere All At Once; The White Lotus’s Jennifer Coolidge took home the gold for actress in a limited series (and made an iconic speech while doing so); and Angela Bassett made history as the first Marvel Cinematic Universe star to be nominated for a Golden Globe and win.

But among the important wins and emotional dedications were plenty of light, heartwarming and downright hilarious moments, which naturally the internet quickly made viral.

From Eddie Murphy’s cheeky Will Smith slap reference to Quinta Brunson’s shameless fangirling, here are nine of the very best viral moments from the awards.
