GOLDEN GLOBES 2019!!

Hey! Long time no see! First I want to apologize for my lack of content in 2018. To be honest, I got into a funk and really couldn’t bring myself to post that much. One of my goals for this new year is to get back into writing. Hopefully I can do more reviews and maybe even update the site a little bit. With award season starting up again, I knew I needed to do my usual coverage so this is great motivation. Thanks to those still reading!

Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh hosted the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards

The Golden Globes were this past Sunday and I’ve got to say, I was pretty surprised with many of the winners. It was an interesting show. Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh did an ok job as hosts; some jokes fell flat but their great personalities made up for it.

I live tweeted throughout the show so check out my twitter feed for some of my opinions and reactions. As per usual, I’ll highlight some winners and then move on to the red carpet segment at the end. My ballot was trash this year so I’m not going to share my mostly wrong predictions!

Some highlights:

  • Best Motion Picture Drama: Bohemian Rhapsody…Honestly the last film I expected to win in this category
  • Best Motion Picture Comedy or Musical: Green Book…I was rooting for other films in this category too like Crazy Rich Asians and The Favourite
  • Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama: Glenn Close for The Wife…She’s had such an amazing career and I hope this carries on to the Oscars (she’s been nominated 6 times!)
  • Best Director: Alfonso Cuaron for Roma…Very well deserved, Roma is purely his magnum opus
  • Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama: Rami Malek for Bohemian Rhapsody…I was rooting for Bradley Cooper for A Star is Born (I feel bad for him, A Star is Born only got Best Song for “Shallow”)
  • Best Actor in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical: Christian Bale for Vice…Love that he thanked Satan for the inspiration
  • Best Actress in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical: Olivia Colman for The Favourite…Well deserved!
  • Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture: Mahershala Ali for Green Book
  • Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture: Regina King for If Beale Street Could Talk…So happy to see her getting the accolades she deserves
  • Best TV Series Drama: The Americans
  • Best TV Series Comedy: The Kominsky Method…I never even heard of it but ok
  • Best Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for TVThe Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story
  • Best Actor in a TV Series Drama: Richard Madden for The Bodyguard
  • Best Actress in a TV Series Drama: Sandra Oh for Killing Eve…Yes! She and her parents are so adorable
  • Best Actor in a TV Series Comedy: Michael Douglas for The Kominsky Method
  • Best Actress in a TV Series Comedy: Rachel Brosnahan for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel…Golden Globes doesn’t like to repeat winners so this caught me off guard

Check out the full list of winners here!

Moving on to the Red Carpet! Our special guest correspondent Amanda A has joined us again this year to give her favorite and least favorite picks!

Amy’s Choices

BEST

Regina King in custom Alberta Ferretti

Lupita Nyong’o in Calvin Klein by Appointment

Julia Roberts in Stella McCartney

I love the pants!

HONORABLE MENTIONS

Constance Wu in custom Vera Wang

I actually didn’t like this dress when I first saw it, but it grew on me. I love the sash and she looks naturally pretty. 

Halle Berry in Zuhair Murad

Halle is always so fine.

WORST

Gina Rodriguez in Reem Acra

Anne Hathaway in Elie Saab

I just don’t like animal print.

 

Amanda’s Choices

BEST

Regina King in custom Alberta Ferretti

That color! That shine!

Danai Gurira in Rodarte

That color! That train!

Billy Porter in Randi Rahm

Business in the front, party in the back.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

Gemma Chan in Valentino Haute Couture

Serious Astrid vibes.

Jamie Lee Curtis

I’m about to buy me some Activia if it’ll make me look that good.

Lady Gaga in custom Valentino Couture

Because her hair matched her dress and that takes effort.

WORST

Constance Wu in custom Vera Wang

The bottom half is nice but the top half doesn’t really match.

Darren Criss in Dior Men

He deserved to win but I’m not feeling the flowered jacket.

Julia Roberts in Stella McCartney

I was confused.

Thank you again to Amanda A for her red carpet correspondence. Hope everyone enjoyed the Golden Globes and make sure to check back for more award season coverage!
