If anyone missed one of the most awaited night of the month, Golden Globes 2017, here’s a quick review of what happened and made it so awesome.
Jimmy Fallon kicked off the ceremony by performing a fabulous opening number at this year’s 74th annual Golden Globe awards. Luck wasn’t with him as he suffered from some technical problems but it was all soon forgotten by the jokes made about the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
La la Land nailed the show; it was a major highlight in this year’s Golden Globe awards. The movie managed to win all of the seven nominations and broke the record of wining most golden globe awards. Ryan Gosling and Emma stone won for best actor and best actress respectively and the movie won for the best motion picture. Ryan Gosling also brought us to tears by giving an emotional speech honoring his wife for being supportive and dedicated his award to his wife’s brother who died from cancer.
It turned out to be a great night for British television as two British TV shows The Crown and The Night Manager won top awards. Way to go, Tom Hiddleston; winning awards and dating Taylor Swift, all in one year? You won at life.
Best actor for motion picture was won by Casey Affleck for his role in “Manchester by the Sea”.
Best actress for motion pictures was won by French actress Isabelle Huppert for her role in Elle, which was totally unexpected because two time golden globe award winner Natalie Portman had been critic’s favorite for months for her role as Jackie Kennedy in “Jackie”.
Daughter of Diana Ross, Tracee Ellis Ross won her first golden globe for her role of Dr. Rainbow Johnson on “Black-ish,” and she’s the first black actress to win in this category since Debbie Allen’s 1983 win for “Fame.”
Brad Pitt made a surprising appearance with cheers from the crowd. And man, did he look better than ever. This was the first time the star made an appearance at a big event since his split with Angelina Jolie.
On a serious note, Meryl Streep gave an amazing speech talking about America’s current political state after receiving Cecil B. DeMille award. It was the best bit of the show. She ended her speech with tears in her eyes, “As my friend, the dear departed Princess Leia, said to me once, ‘Take your broken heart and make it into art.” The show ended with those words embarked in everyone’s heart.
