Golden Globes/Facebook

Sunday, January 5th saw the 77th Golden Globe awards handed out to the winners of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s film and television nominees.  The Globes are a bit less formal than the Oscars and often more unpredictable (the alcohol at the tables helps).  But what was predictable was five time host Ricky Gervais feigning indifference and delivering digs early on to the likes of Felicity Huffman (whom he claimed made his license plate) and Leonardo DiCaprio (insert joke about the typical age of his dates here).  With the Oscars and Emmy award shows going without a host in 2019, the Globes instead brought their most reliable and controversial anchor back in 2020, who went only seven minutes before he was censored for a joke about Judi Dench in Cats (you’ll have to let your imagination run wild with that one).

Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon then took to the stage to give out the first awards to Ramy Youssef (Ramy) and Russell Crowe (The Loudest Voice).  Crowe was not present, home in Australia where wildfires are still ravaging the country, instead sending a message about the importance of fighting climate change which Aniston read on his behalf.  Many celebrities got political in their speeches, including Patricia Arquette and Michelle Williams, while Olivia Colman didn’t find many words to make a speech at all she was so surprised (thanks to The Crown for providing more reasons to see awesome Colman awards season speeches!).  Another surprised recipient was Sam Mendes when he triumphed in the best director category for 1917.

Netflix was coming into the evening with a strong slate of nominees both in film and television.  Noah Baumbach‘s Marriage Story led the way with six nominations while Martin Scorsese‘s The Irishman had five.  In the television categories Netflix’s The Crown and Unbelievable had four nominations, alongside HBO’s series Chernobyl.  However Netflix came away with only wins for the aforementioned Colman in The Crown and Laura Dern in Marriage Story.  Despite having three out of the five Best Picture Drama nominees under their banner, the big winner was 1917.   Quentin Tarantino‘s Once Upon A Time in Hollywood was named Best Picture Musical or Comedy.  Not surprisingly, Parasite won Best Picture – Foreign Language, with director Bong Joon-ho truthfully saying in his short acceptance speech, “Once you overcome the one inch barrier to subtitles, you will be introduced to so many more amazing films.”

The Cecil B. deMille Award, a special award handed out for “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment” was bestowed upon Tom Hanks who got teary eyed and managed to remind everyone that showing up on time and coming in with a “head full of ideas” is the best way to approach the job.  The Carol Burnett award, which was created in 2018 to “honour excellence in television” was first given to Burnett at last year’s Globes ceremony.  This year it was awarded to Ellen DeGeneres whose speech probably garnered the most laughs of the night (host next year Ellen??).
