Sandra Oh just made history

Regina King has a challenge for Hollywood

"This is so fantastic."

Regina King was talking about her win for supporting actress in a motion picture for "If Beale Street Could Talk," but she could have been talking about her challenge to Hollywood.

For the next two years, she has vowed to only produce projects that employ 50 percent women.

It's an answer to the disparity the industry has seen with women not having as many opportunities as men, and she referenced "Times Up times 2."

Your move, Hollywood.

Taylor Swift and Idris Elba was a lot of pretty on the stage

Can Taylor Swift act?

Asking for a friend because she and Idris Elba were looking mighty good together presenting at the Globes.

We are thinking Elba as James Bond and Swift as a Bond woman (we don't call them "Bond girls" anymore).

Oh, and they presented the best original score award to Justin Hurwitz for "First Man" and "Shallow" from "A Star is Born" for original song.

It seemed fitting that Lady Gaga would mention the struggle of women in music to be taken seriously as Swift has been highlighting that fight for years.

After the accolades, there was a proud dad moment as Elba introduced Miss Golden Globe 2019, his daughter Isan.

"Shallow" wins best original song

"Shallow," a ballad from the "A Star Is Born" soundtrack, just won for best original song.

Lady Gaga and Mark Ronson accepted the award.

"As a woman in music, it is really hard to be taken seriously as a musician and as a songwriter," Gaga said.

She went on to thank fellow colleagues who worked on the song with her.

Carol Burnett is now a major part of Golden Globes history

TV icon Carol Burnett was just honored with a Golden Globe Award named after her.

"I am really gobsmacked by this," she said after actor Steve Carrell introduced her. "Does this mean I get to accept it every year?"

The Carol Burnett Award will be awarded annually to someone who "has made outstanding contributions to television on or off the screen," according to a statement from HFPA.

Burnett is a five-time Golden Globe winner.

Water and Moët 

This is just us over here trying to see if we can tell the ratio of champagne to water on the tables during the Golden Globes.

Honestly, aren't awards shows all the better when people are drinking at the table?

Watch for the acceptance speeches to potentially get better as the night wears on.

Patricia Arquette takes home Globe for actress in a limited series or TV movie

If you had Patricia Arquette in the office pool to get bleeped, congratulations!

She won for her role in "Escape at Dannemora," which included an intense transformation involving contact lenses and false teeth.

Talking about those teeth led to some swears that the audience at home didn't get to hear.

They did, however, hear her shouting out the cast and crew, including the woman who served as director of photography on the project.

"A woman [director of photography]," Arquette said. "Bring it on!"

Meryl Streep is not nominated this year

One of the performers most intertwined with the Golden Globe Awards is not nominated this year.

With 31 nominations, Meryl Streep holds the record for most nods.

At the 2017 awards show, she not only accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award for her career achievements, but she also delivered a powerful anti-Trump speech without ever naming him.

Viewers will be watching tonight to see how political, or not, celebs will get.

But more than that the lack of a Streep nomination reminds us that we need her to give us a new project like yesterday.
