And Barbara from Stranger Things is ALIVE!

 

2. Jimmy Fallon’s opening monologue

Jimmy gave a made-up monologue as the teleprompter broke in the beginning of the show. But he made use of his thinking on his feet ability, well. And, poked fun at Ryan Gosling, Chris Rock, Casey Affleck, Matt Damon and others present there.

4. Meryl Streep’s powerful speech

Hollywood legend, Meryl Streep was presented with the prestigious Cecil B. Demille Award by Viola Davis.
