The Night Manager murdered his Globes speech; West Wing guy had a better night

Eton woofter Tom Hiddleston took the opportunity of his Golden Globes win for being the 3rd best character in a middling short TV series to give a decent humblebrag.

Hiddleston lumbered into a story explaining that, while doing humanitarian work in South Sudan with the United Nations Children’s Fund , he encountered a group medics from Médecins Sans Frontières‎ who “wanted to say hello” because “during the shelling the previous month they had binge-watched The Night Manager”.   It’s unclear whether the interpreters correctly got “shelling” right, but Hiddleston forged on to bore the audience:

“The idea that I could, or that we could provide, some relief and entertainment for people who work for Unicef and Médecins Sans Frontières and The World Food Programme who are fixing the world in the places where it was broken made me immensely proud”.


It certainly inspired the guy from West Wing, producing possibly the greatest tweet of all time:

It did not inspire Christian Slater – who is at the table I want to be at.


Malina must have been on the whiskeys, because he rightly gave it to Meryl Streep for most of the night:

I award him no points if he was joking.

Also, what the fuck was going on with Hugh Laurie’s hair? Did they only pay him enough to afford half the hair plugs he needed?
