1. Things got political

With the ceremony coming just over a week after President Donald Trump’s inauguration, a number of speeches (not unexpectedly) turned to his controversial executive orders.

Stranger Things‘ David Harbour passionately told the crowd: ‘We 1983 Midwesterners will repel bullies, we will shelter freaks and outcasts, those who have no home. We will get past the lies, we will hunt monsters.

‘And when we are at a loss amidst the hypocrisy and the casual violence of certain individuals and institutions, we will, as per Chief Jim Hopper, punch some people in the face when they seek to destroy the weak, the disenfranchised and the marginalised!’

Julia Louis-Dreyfus said: ‘My father fled religious persecution in Nazi-occupied France. I’m an American patriot. And I love this country, and because I love this country, I am horrified by its blemishes, and this immigrant ban is a blemish and it is un-American.’

Taraji P. Henson added: ‘When we put our differences aside and we come together as a human race, we win. Love wins. Every time,’ while Ashton Kutcher welcomed: ‘Everyone in airports that belong in my America. You are a part of the fabric of who we are. And we love you and we welcome you.’
