The week started on a high as Hollywood's finest came out to play at the Golden Globes, before bidding farewell to POTUS

1. Make me up before you go-go
Gal Gadot's baby bump made its red carpet debut at the Globes, while Naomie Harris went through great lengths to lie down for a crease-less dress.

2. Spoilt for choice
Jessica Chastain suits up in Prada while Lily Collins had her fair share of choices before settling for a gown worthy of childhood fairytales.

3. Emotions taking us over
As La La Land's Emma Stone got up to receive her award for best actress in a musical or comedy motion picture, a lot of us spotted former beau Andrew Garfield giving her the best standing ovation he's had. 

4. Awkward hugs are the best of hugs
La La Land won a total of seven wins at the Globes, making history with that sheer amount. With all that energy, there were a few misplaced affections.

5. Tom Hiddleston is not your white saviour
After the Taylor Swift drama, you'd think Loki would have sobered up. Apparently not, seeing from the audience reactions of his ill-constructed speech. 

6. Robbery of Riz
Perhaps Hiddleston's biggest crime of the evening was robbing fellow Brit Riz Ahmed of HBO cult favourite show, The Night Of

7. Meryl Streep vs. Donald Trump
Whose side are you on? Whether you've praised Meryl Streep's brave, honest acceptance speech or cast her aside as living in a bubble, you have to admit she's a lot of things but overrated. Shame on you, Trump. 

8. Baftas' best
Once again, La La Land is slated to win big with a whopping number of 11 nominations — sealing fellow nominees in the same room as Ryan Gosling.

9. Thanks, Obama
POTUS Barack Obama delivers his farewell speech amid laughter and tears. 

10. Daddy's girls
Perhaps the most touching moments of Obama's speech were when he referenced his daughters, Malia and Sasha — though the latter skipped the event to attend an exam. "Of all that I have done in my life, I am most proud to be your dad," Obama said.
