74th Annual Golden Globe Winners

While I’m kind of over the whole movie awards thing – at least in terms of who wins, I do still enjoy the conversation that surrounds them. From the snubs to the nods, the parties to the costumes, the champagne to the hors d’oeuvres. The Golden Globes is leg one of the triple crown of movie awards. The others being of course The Spirit Awards and The Academy Awards (perhaps the BAFTAS are in there somewhere as well).

Now that being said, one of the things I like about the GG is that they’re one of the few shows that honor not only movies but also television. Up until about five years ago that is probably something I would have frowned on or simply waved off. However in 2015 and 2016, arguably the best media I consumed were considered television shows – although that distinction is being blurred more and more every year (case in point: O.J.: Made in America).

La La Land led this year’s film nominees with a total of seven mentions, followed by Moonlight with six. On the TV side, “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” tops with five, followed by “The Night Manager” with four.

Last night, Jimmy Fallon took over hosting duties for the ceremony and put on a nice show. While there were no huge upsets or surprises or anything really grandiose that happened on stage, The GG run a classy show (we don’t cut off our winners’ speeches with music!) and the highlight was possibly the lifetime achievement award and the one-two punch of Viola Davis’ introduction and Meryl Streep’s acceptance speech. I see you.

Having just seen a preview of ‘Hidden Figures’, it really is a great film.

Enjoyable, compelling, humorous, well acted, (from the women and Costner right the way through the ensemble to the guy who played John Glenn), emotionally affecting and with a really tense moment. (I don’t remember the last two things being in the Oscar winning ‘Apollo 13’.)

This was one of my favourite films of the year. Shame to see a film that was so emotionally affecting not be more represented in awards season.

I watched the first episode of THE CROWN on Netflix tonight. It seems to be a perfectly passable British drama, which I am sure the Hollywood Foreign Press just ate up.

Heads up, on my mobile version there is no red in the post to signify winners.

I see that too. I’ll try to work that out this evening. Thanks for the alert!
