Jimmy Fallon opened the ceremony with a long homage to La La Land, with cameos from Nicole Kidman, Amy Adams, Ryan Reynolds, Justin Timberlake and others. His opening speech was marred by a brief delay after his teleprompter broke.
Meryl Streep used her acceptance speech to criticise, without stating names, President-elect Donald Trump's alleged imitation of the disabled New York Times journalist, Serge F. Kovaleski, stating: "Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence incites violence. When powerful people use their position to bully we all lose." On the subject of diversity in Hollywood, Streep said, "Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners, and if you kick us all out, you'll have nothing to watch except for football and mixed martial arts, which are not arts."

Press coverage of the event has largely focused on Streep's remarks and the responses to them, and this has also dominated popular responses, generating what the BBC has characterized as a "firestorm on Twitter". Trump responded to Streep's comments on Twitter, describing Streep as "one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood" and a "Hillary flunky", and stating "For the 100th time, I never "mocked" a disabled reporter (would never do that) but simply showed him "groveling" when he totally changed a 16 year old story that he had written in order to make me look bad. Just more very dishonest media!" In fact, Trump did mock a disabled reporter, and Trump's claims that the reporter "totally changed a 16 year old story" are false.
Lorenzo Soria, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) which runs the Golden Globes, wrote on Twitter on 10 January: "As an organisation of journalists, the HFPA stands by your defence of free expression and we reject any calls for censorship". Dana White, president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, responded to Streep's reference to mixed martial arts (MMA), defending the sport as an art, and saying that "the last thing I expect is for an uppity 80-year-old lady to be in our demographic and love mixed martial arts". Scott Coker, president of Bellator MMA, also defended MMA as art, and highlighted the sport's diversity; he invited Streep to attend an event.
Tom Hiddleston received criticism in social media for mentioning that Sudanese medical workers had "binge-watched" The Night Manager, while accepting the award for best actor in a television series. He apologised after the ceremony for his "inelegantly expressed" remarks.
Richard Lawson, reviewing the ceremony in Vanity Fair, considered Fallon's opening homage to La La Land began as "a fun, starry sampling of this year's nominees" but had "worn out its welcome" before the end. Lawson described Fallon as an "oddly tone-deaf" host, and criticized his opening speech: "The jokes were stale and wheezy and Fallon’s lovable-cute shtick was more wearying than it was charming." He praised Kristen Wiig and Steve Carell's introduction to the animated film award as "hilarious ... weird, inspired, clever without smirking".
The Guardian's film critic Peter Bradshaw expressed disappointment that La La Land's success "shut out a lot of contenders that are now in danger of being forgotten and losing momentum", particularly highlighting Nocturnal Animals and Moonlight. He praised Isabelle Huppert's best actress win, calling it "the most extraordinary award".
The ceremony averaged a Nielsen 5.6 ratings/18 share, and was watched by 20.02 million viewers. The ratings was an eight percent increase from previous ceremony's viewership of 18.5 million, becoming the third highest in a decade.
