Selena Gomez’s hilarious reaction steals the Spotlight during cringe-worthy Golden Globes opener



Jo koy’s opening monologue falls flat, but Selena’s response wins hearts and laughter across social media

The 81st Golden Globes Awards witnessed not just glitz and glamour, but also some cringe-worthy moments, particularly in Jo Koy’s opening monologue. The comedian took a swing at the film and TV industry, with jokes that left the audience less than impressed. However, it was Selena Gomez’s candid reaction that stole the show and sent social media into a frenzy.

Koy’s attempt at humour included poking fun at Saltburn’s Barry Keoghan, referencing Taylor Swift’s relationship, and taking a jab at the acting industry through a Barbie analogy. Describing a pivotal moment in Barbie’s life, Koy remarked, “The key moment in Barbie is when she goes from perfect beauty to bad breath, cellulite, and flat feet… Or what casting directors call ‘character actor’.” The lacklustre response from the audience spoke volumes.

Selena Gomez, caught on camera during this awkward moment, showcased a reaction that perfectly mirrored the disappointment felt by many. Head in hands, staring at the table, Gomez’s candid response became the talk of social media.

Twitter users flooded the platform with reactions, with one user humorously stating, “Selena and that old lady are going through it,” referring to Helen Mirren. Fans praised Gomez’s authenticity, with comments like, “Selena Gomez is so real for this” and “Selena’s reaction never misses.”

It wasn’t just Gomez; other attendees, including Helen Mirren and Harrison Ford, also appeared unimpressed by Koy’s jokes. Social media users highlighted the discomfort felt by various celebrities, turning the incident into a viral sensation.

Realizing the lack of enthusiasm for his jokes, Koy defended himself, stating, “I got the gig 10 days ago, you want a perfect monologue?” Despite his explanation, social media continued to buzz with laughter and critiques.

As the Golden Globes unfolded, it became clear that Jo Koy’s opening act may not have landed as intended, but Selena Gomez’s genuine reaction undeniably stole the spotlight.
