The Golden Globes is a place where memes are born. Yeah, sure, we get a lot of award winners, speeches and celebrations. Sure, we learn new TV shows and movies to watch. Or we learn how out of touch we are with society. But memes are a constant. Tom Hanks became the latest meme from the Golden Globes Sunday night.
What happened: Hanks made a facial expression during the 2020 Golden Globes awards during the opening monologue of the night, which was presented by host Ricky Gervais.
Twitter turned one of his facial expressions into a meme. See the reactions below.
