While the majority of guests and nominees seemed happy for the deserving winners, Queen B, Beyonce, has been slammed for being rude during Joaquin Phoenix's win.

Last night saw the premiere of the 77th annual Golden Globes.
via: Getty ImagesThe star-studded night saw the world's best actors come together to celebrate yet another successful year in the entertainment industry.
Even though there were some worthy competitors, the Brits managed to reign supreme.
via: Getty ImagesOur favorite actors and actresses across the pond stole the show, as they managed to sweep up a lot of the major awards including Best Actress (TV series), Best Director and Best Picture (drama).
One of the major front runners was none other than Sam Mendes.
via: Getty ImagesThe English film director received two awards for his World War I drama 1917 including the coveted Best Director and Best Picture (drama). 2020 seems to be looking good for Mendes as he recently got knighted.
He has high hopes for the movie...
via: Getty Images"I really hoped this means people will turn up and see it on the big screen as intended," he said as he took to the stage alongside the film crew.
via: Getty ImagesThe biographical film also picked up 2 awards including Best Original Song.
The Brits didn't stop there...
via: Getty ImagesPheobe Waller-Bridge's won her fair share of awards last night. Fleabag was awarded 2 awards including Best TV series (comedy/musical) and Best Actress (comedy/musical). And well deserved, I must say.
And would it really be a British invasion if Olvia Coleman didn't have a win?
via: Getty ImagesThe Crown actress, Olivia Coleman, won the award for Best Actress (drama), and let me tell you, she had some pretty tough competition. Coleman stood alongside the likes of Jodie Comer, Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Nicole Kidman.
However, the biggest winner of the night had to be Once Upon A Time in Hollywood.
via: Getty ImagesEven though the Brits seemed to dominate the show, we did see the Americans pull it back with 2019's Hollywood blockbuster.
Once Upon A Time in Hollywood came out on top, winning 3 of the major awards of the night.
via: Getty ImagesThis included Brad Pitt's win as Best Supporting Actor. After 2 decades of a life without a Golden Globe, Pitt finally got a taste of what it feels like to be amongst the winners.
We wish we could say the same for Leonardo DiCaprio... But we can't.
via: Getty ImagesThe actor was nominated for Best Actor (in a motion picture), but was beaten by none other than Taron Egerton for his role in Rocketman. We mean, if there's one person to beat DiCaprio, it would be young, fake Elton John, wouldn't it?
And just to add a little insult to injury, Pitt decided he would bring up some haunting memories for his friend.
via: Getty ImagesDuring his acceptance speech, Pitt decided to play on the iconic Titanic scene that everyone always seems to talk about. That's right, the moment when Jack (played by Leo) sacrifices himself by letting Rose (Kate Winslet) lie on the floating door to keep out of the freezing water.
People have always had their theories that Jack could have survived if Rose shared the door...
via: Getty ImagesAnd it seems as though Brad also agrees with us! He started off his speech like this, "I also have to thank my partner in crime, Leonardo DiCaprio. Before The Revenant, I used to watch year after year, his co-stars win awards and get up and thank him profusely and I now know why..."
He continued saying...
via: Getty Images"He’s an all-star, he’s a gent. I wouldn’t be here without you, man. I thank you. But still… I would’ve shared the raft." And that's all it took. That one line made the entire audience, including DiCaprio, burst out into laughter.
And the jokes didn't end there...
via: Getty ImagesLast night's Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais took to the stage and gave us a night to remember with some brutally hilarious jokes about "fake celebrities."
But one of the most deserving wins of the evening had to go to Joaquin Phoenix...
via: Getty ImagesHe won a Golden Globe for Best Actor in Motion Picture Drama for his performance in 2019's Joker.
His acceptance speech was a little bizarre, we must say...
via: Getty ImagesHe touchingly thanked partner Rooney Mara and apologized to Joker director Todd Phillips for being "such a pain in the ass."
He also made references to climate change...
via: Getty ImagesHe said to his fellow A-listers, "We don't have to take private jets to Palm Springs ... I'll try to do better, and I hope you will too."
Fans have praised the actor heavily...
Joaquin Phoenix calling out the bullshit of Awards Season and celebrating the work of his fellow nominees! Plus he… https://t.co/CEWomZVnnv— Matt Neglia (@Matt Neglia)1578283109.0
He received a standing ovation when he took to the stage to accept his award...
via: Getty ImagesBut it seems that not everyone in the crowd felt he was worthy of standing up.
Beyonce and her husband, Jay-Z, were sat a few feet away from the winning actor.
via: TwitterThe singer is visibly seen sitting behind Phoenix as he stands up to accept his award, and she seems to be the only member of the audience who doesn't bother standing up... or even to clap her hands, for that matter!
This hasn't made the singer look good, at all.Many have branded Beyonce as "rude" and "disrespectful" for refusing to stand for Phoenix's deserved win.
Many of her fans were disappointed in her...
@sbstryker It makes her look bad tbh. And I’m a Beyoncé fan. I thought it was because her dress would have blocked… https://t.co/DPZ5OPKcWj— Trisha Sword (@Trisha Sword)1578286928.0
Her dress was somewhat of a spectacle...
Just putting it out there. MAYBE Beyoncé didn’t stand during Joaquin Phoenix’s standing ovation because her dress w… https://t.co/rnWvY6ot6h— Nicki Price (@Nicki Price)1578302914.0
The jokes quickly flooded in...
@sbstryker You can’t wear that parachute she put on and stand up anyhow you might just fly away😂— travs (@travs)1578300235.0
Let's hope that this is merely the reason for her not standing up...
via: Getty ImagesBut either way, Phoenix made a very gracious winner and he was overall heavily applauded for his hard work and talent. For more Golden Globes, keep scrolling to see the best and the worst dressed of this year...
