Twitter thirsty for the Fiji water woman

Quick, somebody get her a contract!

Twitter lit up Sunday night about the woman handing out Fiji Water on the Golden Globes red carpet.

At the very least she won for meme of the night after Twitter dubbed her "Fiji Water Girl" and couldn't stop talking about her standing there in the background, poised with bottles of water to quench the throats of the stars.

The true winner was probably Fiji Water, which was one of the sponsors of the night.

Seriously, whoever directed her to just stand there behind every celeb needs a raise.

Here's the thing though: How interesting is your awards show when one of the most exciting things is the person holding bottled water?

Christian Bale wins best actor, thanks "satan" for inspiration on playing Dick Cheney

Christian Bale, who played former Vice President Dick Cheney in "Vice," won best actor for his performance.

Bale thanked Adam McKay, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of "The Big Short," for hiring him for the part.

"He said, 'I've got to find someone who can be absolutely charisma-free and rivaled by everybody ... thank you for all the competition. I will be cornering the market on charisma-free (sic)," Bale said.

He then asked the audience, "What do you think, Mitch McConnell next? That could be good couldn't it?"

Bale went on to thank "satan," "for giving me inspiration on how to play this role."

"Vice" tells the story of how Cheney, in his role as vice president to George W. Bush (played by Sam Rockwell in the film), "became the most powerful man in the world" and reshaped "the country and the globe in ways that we still feel today," according to a description from the studio.
