Golden Globes 2021 memes: Jason Sudeikis hoodie, Jared Leto flower power

When a Hollywood awards show lets stars appear virtually from home, backgrounds and clothing choices are the real winners.

Sunday's Golden Globe Awards felt a little like a work Zoom meeting, with nominees blipping in virtually from wherever they happen to be. And just like those work meetings, there's always someone with a snark-worthy background, questionable attire, a cute pet, a forgotten mute button or some other technical adventure. Turns out technology goofs are the one thing that level the playing field and make that Oscar-winning actor look just as fumbling as your spacey co-worker.

Bill Murray's vacation look

Bill Murray, up for a best supporting actor award for On the Rocks, didn't win, but his bright and casual look appealed to those of us dreaming of a return to pre-coronavirus travel. So did his accompanying beverage. One person tweeted, "Bill Murray with his martini is a whole mood."

Even Dictionary.com got in on the fun, tweeting out a new definition for "Hawaiian shirt."

"Hawaiian shirt, noun, 1. a short-sleeved, open-collar shirt originally worn in Hawaii, made of lightweight fabric printed in colorful, often bold designs of flowers, leaves, birds, beaches, etc.," the site tweeted, following up with, "2. also known as a Bill Murray tuxedo."

Jeff Daniels in the door store

Jeff Daniels didn't win an acting Globe for his role in The Comey Rule, but the door-filled room he was in won with viewers.

"Jeff Daniels, beaming in from the room where he stores all his doors," wrote one Twitter user.

And Daniels himself weighed in on his casual clothing choice, tweeting, "Congrats to Mark Ruffalo and a special thanks to the #Golden Globes for allowing me to fulfill a life long dream of going to an awards show wearing Carhartt."

Olivia Colman reigns

Olivia Colman didn't win for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II in The Crown, but she was thrilled for the winner -- her co-star, Emma Corrin, who plays Princess Diana.

"Get yourself someone who reacts the way Olivia Colman does when you win a Golden Globe," wrote one Twitter user.

Colman also won praise for her excitement when nominee Sarah Paulson showed off her puppy, and Corrin brought out her cat. Or as one person said, "We are all Olivia Colman leaning forward to see the pets."

Wrote another, "The best part of this Golden Globes so far is Sarah Paulson and Olivia Colman demanding Emma Corrin go find her cat."

Jason Sudeikis' tie-dye hoodie

Ted Lasso star Jason Sudeikis, a Globes winner Sunday night, chose a casual look -- a tie-dyed hoodie that read "Forward Space." The actor told reporters the sweatshirt was promoting his sister's dance studio and workout space in New York City.

"I believe in the product as much as the message," Sudeikis said. He also joked about his unpretentious appearance, saying, "You gotta look back at Audrey Hepburn for 'Funny Face.' She also wore a hoodie."

Said one Twitter user, "Jason Sudeikis looks like he only just now realized everybody else was gonna dress up for this."

And others felt Sudeikis has a lot going on in his life right now and fashionistas should cut him some slack. Wrote one, "God bless Jason Sudeikis for leaning directly into the 'my ex is dating Harry Styles' aesthetic."

Jared Leto's flower

Jared Leto drew attention for the huge flower pin he wore, which helped plenty of jokes bloom where they were planted.

One tweet read, "Jared Leto with the flower that is definitely going to spray you with something."

Al Pacino's whole look

Twitter jokesters should know better than to mess with Al Pacino. The Godfather and Scarface star pulled off some fantastic hair, but some wondered if he briefly fell asleep.

"Al Pacino sleeping at the #GoldenGlobes is the most I've ever related to a celebrity," wrote one Twitter user.

Rating the rooms

The Twitter account @ratemyskyperoom got involved, too. Legendary writer/producer Norman Lear, 98, nabbed a perfect score, of course. "Classic. 10/10," the site wrote.

Queen's Gambit star Anya Taylor-Joy also scored a perfect 10. "Brought her 'A' lighting game," the site wrote. "Great lamp/mirror work. Tall plant. 10/10."

Don Cheadle was helped to a perfect score by the paintings on his walls. "Fabulous art," the review read. "Well lit. Good spacing. Nice basket."

And Schitt's Creek star Eugene Levy also maxed out his rating. "Depth. Piano. Lighting. Love the stripes. Mirror. Pillows. Of course it's a 10/10," the site wrote.
