A Golden Globes Recap: The good, the bad, and Fiji’s brilliant marketing idea

Last Sunday, Sandra Oh (Grey’s Anatomy) and Andy Samberg (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) hosted the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards. The hosts were able to laugh at themselves for being known as “the two nicest people in show business”. They jokingly forced Jim Carrey to leave the movie-nominated section of the audience and “roasted” some audience members in the only fashion “the two nicest people in show business” know how. Oh then got serious and gave a powerful ending monologue speech. She noted how she is proud to be a part of changing times. Minus the speech, the continuous safe jokes made for an eventful evening.

Here are some of the night’s biggest winners:

  • Motion Picture: Bohemian Rhapsody
  • Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy: Greenbook
  • Original Song in a Motion Picture: Shallow (A Star Is Born)

Although there was a plethora of stars, none of them stole the show quite like the “Fiji water girl”. The stranger was a mysterious girl that handed out Fiji water to the guests on the Golden Globe red carpet. She even managed to photobomb some of the celebrities’ photos. It was as obvious as a publicity stunt can be, but it worked. In Fiji’s defense, it was a brilliant idea. They knew the audience could turn it into a meme and it would most likely overshadow everything else going on that evening. Well, that is exactly what happened. “Fiji water girl”, who’s real name is Kelleth Cuthbert, was later asked about the incident where she claimed she had “absolutely no idea what was happening“. Whether this was the biggest publicity stunt of the year or a happy accident, it definitely has worked out in Fiji’s favor.
