Winners of the 74th Annual Golden Globes

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

Though the Screen Actors Guild awards have already been handed out, the Golden Globes truly heralds the coming of the official awards season. Plus, with the alcohol freely flowing at the tables, it also holds the reputation of being the most fun and unpredictable of awards shows, never knowing what celebrity may get tipsy before their acceptance speech. It’s also great to see the stars of television and film, though an increasingly intermingling crowd, together in one room.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler held the hosting reins for three years before giving way to Ricky Gervais last year. Perhaps wanting to avoid controversy, NBC gave the hosting honour to Fey and Poehler’s SNL cast mate, and current Tonight Show host, Jimmy Fallon this broadcast. The choice proved to be a relatively safe one, despite quite a high density of election jokes in the first monologue (though he wasn’t the only one to get political).  The opening sequence was one of the most start studded in memory with Amy Adams, Nicole Kidman, the cast of Stranger Things (Spoiler Alert! Barb is alive!) and Justin Timberlake among others, in a medley of La La Land tunes.  Though, after the great opening, Fallon really had little to do in the rest of the broadcast.

The separation of films into Comedy/Musical and Drama allows for a more widely varied nomination field (Ryan Reynolds for playing Deadpool? Yes!) However, leading into the night, La La Land had the most nominations for a motion picture with seven, besting its likely Oscar competition Moonlight by one.  The winner of the night turned out to be Damien Chazelle’s musical  La La Land which won in every category in which it was nominated.  By contrast, Moonlight only won one – yet it was the biggest one that mattered and will continue to fuel the fight between Moonlight and La La Land for the upcoming Academy Awards.

In television, the FX series The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story lead the way with five nominations, over AMC’s The Night Manager with four.  However, The Night Manager managed to best them with three wins to American Crime Stories‘ two, though the Simpson drama did take away best limited series honours.  Atlanta and The Crown also walked away with two awards each.
