“There could be 100 Fiji waters on the red carpet… but it only takes one to quench your thirst.”
Date January 7, 2019
You can’t dress up Hollywood’s top television and film stars, put them in one room, glue a video camera to their faces, broadcast the footage to 18 million viewers, and not expect the internet to do what it does best: capture a moment, and make a meme. Award shows are a gold mine for relatable moments, reaction GIFs and endless witty photo captions, and the Golden Globes—the first hurrah of the season—did not disappoint the Meme Lords™ of the web. From the #FijiWaterGirl to Christian Bale’s surprise accent, here are the best viral moments from last night’s Golden Globes.
Jameela Jamil is credited as “Kamilah Al-Jamil”
CONTEXT: Jameela Jamil, who plays Tahani Al-Jamil on The Good Place, was incorrectly credited as “Kamiliah Al-Jamil” by E! News as she stepped onto the red carpet. If you’re a fan of The Good Place, you already get the joke. If not, here’s an explainer: Tahani is characterized by her complicated relationship with her sister, Kamilah, whose fame and achievements consistently outshine her own. Identifying Jameela as her character’s hated sibling on the red carpet? It is, in Jameela’s own words, “legit the funniest thing.”
Idris Elba meets Daniel Craig
CONTEXT: Daniel Craig, the current James Bond, posed for a selfie with Idris Elba, the maybe/rumoured/hopefully future James Bond.

The Fiji Water Girl is everywhere
