Julia Garner Call Out Jason Bateman at 2024 Golden Globes Awards

This year, the 2024 Golden Globes Awards were all about unexpected zingers! And who threw the hottest shade of the night? None other than Julia Garner playfully roasted her former "Ozark" co-star Jason Bateman in front of millions.

While presenting the award for Best Supporting Actress on TV, Julia and fellow presenter Jonathan Bailey, a Golden Globes first-time attendee, were having a lighthearted chat. When Jonathan, wide-eyed with excitement, asked for tips for his first award show, Julia's mischievous smile hinted at what was coming next. 

With a cheeky pause for dramatic effect, she dropped the ultimate on-air bombshell: "Do not listen to Jason Bateman! Shhh!!!" she exclaimed while making eye contact with Jason as he sat in the crowd. "Unless it's on a podcast." Mic drop. Audience erupts. Cue Twitter meltdown. In one hilarious quip, Julia not only cracked up the room but also made speculative headlines. It was undoubtedly a hilarious shade-throwing moment that stole the show at the Golden Globes.


Given how Julia and Jason's time on the Netflix drama, Ozark came to an end in early 2022, seeing the two interact ahead of her handing The Crown star Elizabeth Debicki her Golden Globe had Ozark fans completely in stitches on social media. One person wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter, "STOPPP JULIA GARNER AND JASON BATEMAN TALKING AHHHH.”  and another fan screamed on the platform writing "Jason Bateman and Julia Garner 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭.”

"The only truly funny joke so far was Julia Garner saying, “Don’t listen to Jason Bateman, except in a podcast," a different viewer stated, referencing folks' distaste for host Jo Koy's comments throughout the televised broadcast.

But, many of us were more happy to see Julia’s on-air quip about Jason didn’t affect their longtime friendship at all, as the two eventually reunited later on at the Golden Globes. They even posed the sweet behind-the-scenes photos together from the award ceremony. This clearly shows how strong their friendship is. They both have mutual respect and understanding of how to treat each other. 

When asked Jason how the two felt about each other, he spoke to The Hollywood Reporter in August 2020 about how much he likes Julia’s acting abilities, he said, "Julia has an innate vulnerability to her that runs as a really interesting juxtaposition to her ferocity," adding "She’s as sweet as she is sour, as much of a beauty as she is a beast, and her ability to toggle between those polarities... the [Ozark] writers write to that."

As Julia Garner's career continues to flourish and their paths potentially cross again, it’ll be interesting to see if their off-screen interactions might offer further clues about their cherished friendship.
