The 74th Golden Globe Awards

Tonight was a great night for all the winners and nominees at the 74th Golden Globe Awards. There were many cheers, tears, and surprises at the awards tonight, which Jimmy Fallon did a pretty good job hosting, although he wasn’t really involved as a host as much as I thought he would be. The opening of the ceremony was an awesome tribute to La La Land, which won all seven awards in which it was nominated in, which is truly quite revolutionary. Without further ado, here are the winners in the movie categories:

Best Picture – Drama: Moonlight

Best Picture – Musical or Comedy: La La Land

Best Director – Damien Chazelle: La La Land

Best Actor – Drama: Casey Affleck – Manchester by the Sea

Best Actress – Drama: Isabelle Huppert – Elle

Best Actor – Musical or Comedy: Ryan Gosling – La La Land

Best Actress – Musical or Comedy: Emma Stone – La La Land

Best Supporting Actor: Aaron Taylor-Johnson – Nocturnal Animals

Best Supporting Actress: Viola Davis – Fences

Best Screenplay: Damien Chazelle – La La Land

Best Original Score: Justin Hurwitz – La La Land

Best Original Song: “City of Stars” – La La Land

Best Animated Feature: Zootopia

Best Foreign Language Film: Elle (France)

I am very glad that La La Land was able to win 7 Golden Globes out of 7 nominations, and it has just set the record for the most Golden Globes won by a single film. I am so happy that it’s already becoming the classic that it deserves to become, and I can already imagine how much love the Academy will give it at the Oscars. I can’t see any other film winning Best Picture this year. I’m also glad that Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Viola Davis won awards for their fantastic work in their supporting roles in Nocturnal Animals and Fences. The winner for Best Animated Feature was a close battle between Moana and Zootopia, but Zootopia ended up taking home the award, which I have nothing against because Zootopia is a terrific animated film with great themes and animation. I am very surprised, however, that Isabelle Huppert won the award for her performance in a foreign language film, over Amy Adams’ wonderful performance in Arrival, as well as Natalie Portman’s performance in Jackie which has been getting a lot of buzz as well. I still need to watch Manchester by the Sea and Moonlight before the Oscars come around. Also, the recipient of this year’s Cecil B. DeMille Award was Meryl Streep, an award that she has deserved since the beginning of her career. Streep delivered a great acceptance speech,saying that Hollywood is the definition of arts. Well, I think it’s safe to say that this year’s Golden Globe Awards ceremony was a great one. Let’s see how these films do at the Oscars.

  1. I still haven’t seen ‘La La Land’ and I am very much looking forward to it as well as to watching ‘Moonlight’ and ‘Lion’. The Golden Globes Award Ceremony was impressive, especially Meryl Streep’s acceptance speech
