Best: Outsiders Get a Seat at the Beverly Hilton

Who would ever guess that the man behind the infamously terrible The Room would wind up onstage at the Golden Globes? Tommy Wiseau's materialization during James Franco's acceptance speech for portraying the cult-movie auteur in The Disaster Artist was one of the night's more unexpected absurdities ... but there was also something really nice about it. Both Wiseau and Tonya Harding's presence at the ceremony, as unlikely subjects for two of the year's best biopics, were a welcome and rare instance of Hollywood opening up its gilded gates. And they weren't the only outsiders at the Globes: Emma Watson, Meryl Streep, Amy Poehler and other actresses brought activists from outside the entertainment industry to attend the ceremony, including #MeToo founder Tarana Burke and Latina gender equality advocate Mónica Ramírez. Their presence was vital to ensuring that all those black dresses were more than just a fashion choice, but a promise to do better. JS
