The show received mixed to negative reviews, with the critics panning host Ricky Gervais's jokes as well as lack of energy in ceremony. Writing for The Washington Post, Hank Stuever heavily criticised the ceremony saying, "We ask for the worst, so we get the worst", and went on to said "Gervais acted like he was the one being made to suffer, but truly this misery is shared all around." Daniel D'Addario of Time's also felt that show was a "bore" and said, "By the Globes' own standard, this year's show felt unbearably bogged down." However, The New York Times' James Poniewozik reviewed the ceremony moderately saying: "A well-run, fun Globes — privileged people toasting their terrific success with bottomless Moët — is its own corrective to Hollywood self-seriousness. Whereas the planned transgression of this one was less a stiff shot than small beer." The ceremony was nominated for the Writers Guild of America Award for Best Comedy/Variety (Music, Awards, Tributes) – Specials, but lost out to Triumph's Election Special 2016.
The ceremony averaged a Nielsen 5.5 ratings/13 share, and was watched by 18.5 million viewers. The ratings was an eleven percent decline from the previous ceremony's viewership of 19.3 million, the second highest in a decade.
