Tom Hanks Becomes an Instant Meme at the 2020 Golden Globes

Tom Hanks walked away with a lifetime achievement award at this year’s Golden Globes, but that wasn’t the only thing that Twitter remembered at the end of the night. The beloved actor made a bunch of hilarious facial expressions during the award ceremony and became the first viral meme of 2020.

Dozens of our favorite celebrities were in attendance at this award ceremony, but the cameras still kept turning to Hanks for reaction shots – and he certainly delivered. America’s Dad went viral early into the night because his reaction to Ricky Gervais’ monologue was truly priceless.

Hanks’ face said what we were all thinking while the notorious comedian did his best job to offend everyone in the room. Gervais’ Golden Globe monologues have always been divisive, but even if you don’t find his jokes funny, the actor’s hilarious reaction will give you something to laugh about.

Even if it wasn’t for his hilarious facial expressions, Tom Hanks would still be the talk of the night. He received the Cecil B. DeMille Award and his emotional speech left everyone in the room – and watching at home – crying happy tears.
