Awards season is finally here people! The Golden Globes were this past Sunday and the resounding theme of the night was TIME’S UP! From actresses wearing black on the red carpet to riveting speeches calling for change in response to the major sexual harassment issues in the workplace, the Golden Globes this year definitely had a more serious, but hopeful tone. Seth Meyers to me was a forgettable host because in the end, it was not about the jokes but more about the message being put forth by the winners and those in attendance. There were some great winners and surprises though! Perhaps my, and maybe everyone else’s, favorite moment of the night was Oprah’s incredible speech as she accepted the Cecille B. DeMille award. I believe everyone should take the time to watch or read her words so please do!
Also, for more of my opinions and live reactions to the show, make sure to check out TSL’s live twitter feed from yesterday!
- Best Motion Picture Drama: 3 Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, This one took me by surprise. I really thought it was going to be The Shape of Water so let us see where the rest of awards season takes us.
- Best Motion Picture Comedy or Musical: Ladybird, So thrilled for Greta Gerwig (who was majorly snubbed for a directing nom). Get Out deserved more recognition though.
- Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama: Frances McDormand for 3 Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Again I was not expecting this, but I really like Frances and she had a great speech.
- Best Director: Guillero Del Toro for The Shape of Water, I had to report on this because I love Del Toro and was truly so happy for him! It was unacceptable, however, to try to play him off the stage. Like he said, give him a moment! It took 25 years to get there!
- Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama: Gary Oldman for The Darkest Hour, such a legendary actor who also should not have been played off
- Best Actor in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical: James Franco for The Disaster Artist, Thought it was kind of rude when he pushed Tommy Wiseau (the man he played in the movie) away from the mic though
- Best Actress in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical: Saoirse Ronan for Lady Bird
- Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture: Sam Rockwell for 3 Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
- Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture: Allison Janney for I, Tonya, well deserved!
- Best TV Series Drama: The Handmaid’s Tale
- Best TV Series Comedy: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Rise Amy Sherman-Palladino, rise!
- Best Actor in a TV Series Drama: Sterling K. Brown for This is Us, YES!
- Best Actress in a TV Series Drama: Elisabeth Moss for The Handmaid’s Tale
- Best Actor in a TV Series Comedy: Aziz Ansari for Master of None, Represent! Him and Brown were the first black and Asian actors to win in their respective categories.
- Best Actress in a TV Series Comedy: Rachel Brosnahan for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
- Best Actor, Limited Series or Motion Picture for TV: Ewan McGregor for Fargo
- Best Actress, Limited Series or Motion Picture for TV: Nicole Kidman for Big Little Lies, an incredible performance and speech! Big Little Lies was a major winner of the night.
Typing out all the winners is a lot of work, so check out the full list here!
So I actually considered not doing a Red Carpet segment for this year’s post just because I figured the red carpet was not meant to be the focus of the evening. Then I realized how wrong I was. By wearing black, actresses brought even more attention to what they were wearing and united under a common front. This year’s fashion was more important than ever! So joining us again is Amanda A. highlighting a few of our favorite looks.
Simple, clean, elegant
So classy with the feathered sleeves and sheer overlay. I feel the need to pull her chair out for her and call her madam.
Liked the front and then she turned around and I loved the back!
That lace! What a bombshell
Mariah is flawless and I don’t know anyone else.
That train! And that slit!
Love the shimmer and the shoes
Sunning and so unique!
Also: Penelope Cruz
Thanks for joining us Amanda A! That’s the end of our Golden Globe coverage for this year! Next stop: SAG Awards on January 21st.
