Hollywood goes La La for ‘La La Land’ – winning 7 Golden Globes tonight!
The modern musical “La La Land,” won seven Golden Globes tonight, winning in every category that the film was nominated. "La La Land," won Best Film, Best Actor to Ryan Gosling and Best Actress to Emma Stone in the Comedy and Musical categories. The film’s creator, filmmaker Damien Chazelle won two Golden Globes. The first for its screenplay and the second for Best Director – beating out directors in the drama categories. The film also won for Best Score and Best Song.
Winning Best Film, Drama, was the Indy favorite “Moonlight.” It was the only win for the film this evening. Casey Affleck won a Golden Globe for Best Actor, Drama, for his stirring performance in “Manchester by the Sea,” and what was the most surprising moment of the night was the Best Actress, Drama, Golden Globe Award honoring Isabelle Huppert for her work in the French film “Elle.”
Viola Davis won her first Golden Globe tonight for Best Supporting Actress for her work in August Wilson’s “Fences.” And she appears to have an incredibly good chance of finally bringing home an Oscar next month.
Another surprising victory in the film categories was the Best Supporting Actor win by Aaron Taylor-Johnson for his role in “Nocturnal Animals.”
Receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Award was Meryl Streep, thought by many to be our most accomplished of actors. The honor was presented by Viola Davis. And may I say right now, if I ever get an award (which is extremely doubtful), I want Viola to present it to me. She gave such a smart and descriptive presentation, that was all heart.
Streep, keeping in her fashion of rarely saying anything about herself, took the moment to get political – which most likely had most republicans shutting off the TV (if they were even watching). She described the best performance as being given by our next President, when he mocked a disabled reported during his run for the White House, in which she claimed had “broken her heart.”
The Golden Globes were hosted by Jimmy Fallon this year. I loved his opening sing-a-thon that poked fun at “La La Land.” And for the most part, he stayed out of any controversy during the bulk of the show.
