Golden Globe Awards 2015

The 72nd annual Golden Globe Awards were broadcast live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel and produced by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and Dick Clark Productions.  Tina Fey and Amy Poehler returned to host the awards for the their third consecutive year, and the last year of their contract.  Their monologue was as hilarious as ever and poked fun at the Sony Hack, the fact that George Clooney is getting a lifetime achievement award when his wife, Amal, probably deserves one more, the Cosby sexual assault allegations, and much more. Here’s hoping they are asked to host again very soon, or move up to hosting the Oscars.

The night included a surprise appearance by Prince, and Margaret Cho dressing up as the newest member of the HFPA, a North Korean journalist, taking a picture with Meryl Streep, and commenting  on the show’s quality as well as Orange is the New Black‘s placement into the comedy category. Bill Hader and Kristin Wiig cracked themselves up quoting not-so-famous movie lines from various films before presenting the award for Best Screenplay and Tina Fey looked great in a tuxedo.

Heading into the awards, Birdman led the way with the most film nominations, seven, followed by Boyhood and The Imitation Game which each had five nominations and Fargo held the most television nominations with five.

Birdman took home Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical for Michael Keaton and Best Screenplay presented to screenwriter Alejandro González Iñárritu.  Boyhood won Best Motion Picture – Drama, Richard Linklater took home the award for Best Director, and Patricia Arquette won Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture for the film. The Grand Budapest Hotel was awarded Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical. Eddie Redmayne was awarded Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama for The Theory of Everything. Amy Adams won Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical for her role in Big Eyes. Julianne Moore took home Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama for Still Alice.  Into the Woods did not take home a single award.

Fargo took home best Miniseries or TV Movie beating out it’s main rival, True Detective, and Best Actor in a TV Movie or Miniseries for Billy Bob Thornton.  Kevin Spacey won Best Actor in a Television Series – Drama for his role in House of Cards, his first Golden Globe win and eighth nomination.   Maggie Gyllenhaal won Best Actress in a Miniseries or TV Movie for The Honorable Woman. The Affair took home the award for Best Television Series -Drama and Best Actress in a Television Series – Drama for Ruth Wilson.

Gina Rodriguez won Best Actress in a Television Series – Comedy or Musical for Jane the Virgin in the CW’s first Golden Globe win and nomination and Transparent took home the award for Best Television Series – Comedy or Musical in the first Golden Globe win and nomination for Amazon Studios.  Jeffrey Tambor also took home the award for the Best Actor in a Television Series – Comedy or Musical which he dedicated to the transgender community.

George Clooney was presented with the Cecil B. Demille Award for Lifetime Achievement and gave a moving speech which touched upon the fact that winning is far from everything and a mention of how proud he is to be his wife’s husband.

Golden Globes 2014: Winners, Losers, and All Those in Between

2013 was a big year for movies and TV shows, and as such awards contenders are facing steeper competition than they have in years past.  The past year saw the end of one of the greatest dramas to grace the small screen in the middle of what is being called the golden age of television, what is being called one of the most amazing feature films about slavery, a father-son directing duo making one of the most revered films of the year, and that doesn’t begin to scratch the surface of the year’s happenings.

Tonight the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) set out to honor the accomplishments of members of the entertainment industry who worked to create amazing films and television in the previous year.  Amy Poehler and Tina Fey returned for a second year as hosts of the event.  After their success in both ratings and viewer approval last year, the HFPA set out to sign them on for this year’s awards.  Through contract negotiations to host this year’s awards Poehler and Fey asked to return next year as well.  They were expected to keep the audience rolling and they did not disappoint.

Poehler and Fey kept the audience and television viewers laughing the whole event.  Winners made thoughtful speeches, although there was “wrap it up music” to be heard on more than one occasion.  The star-studded event pulled in over 19 million viewers and Poehler and Fey’s return had a lot to do with the high viewership.  The HFPA should be able to expect similar ratings for next year’s show when they return to host a third time.

Full Winner’s List

The night’s winners ranged from the almost guaranteed to complete shockers.  It is important to remember however that the HFPA and the Academy are made up of entirely different people and the HFPA has it’s own way of doing things, and they often like to be ahead of what they expect to be a trove of garnered awards. This is evident in Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s win for best comedy or musical and Andy Samberg’s win for the show in the best actor category. Social media was abuzz with congratulations for the Saturday Night Live alum as well as a plethora of tweets wondering “what is #brooklyn99?” Many were hoping that Parks and Recreation would win the category and give host Amy Poehler the award but the HFPA voters chose to award the new comedy.  Poehler was awarded a much deserved Golden Globe, her first, for Best Actress in a TV Series, Comedy for Parks and Recreation.  She gave a genuine and animated acceptance speech after a make-out session with Bono.

Behind the Candelabra was all but a sure thing to win the Best Miniseries or TV Movie, as was Micheal Douglas as Best Actor in a Miniseries or TV Movie for his role in the film.  Looking at the HFPA’s future winners, it was foreseeable that Jon Voight won his category for Ray Donovan but many were understandably surprised that he beat out Aaron Paul for his role in Breaking Bad.  Jennifer Lawrence beating out Julia Roberts and Lupita N’yongo in the Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture category was unexpected and given the talent in the category her win wasn’t a given going into the show.  Jared Leto was a shoo-in to win Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture for Dallas Buyer’s Club and Frozen was the only real contender for Best Animated Feature Film.  Amy Adams beat out Meryl Streep and other contenders to win Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy, Leonardo DiCaprio won Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy for The Wolf of Wall Street and gave a well thought out and heartfelt acceptance speech, Robin Wright won Best Actress in a TV Series, Drama, but one of the biggest upsets of the night was Jacqueline Bisset’s win for Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Miniseries, or TV Movie for Dancing on the Edge and her subsequent “shit” that slipped through sensors followed by a disjointed and blundering acceptance speech.

The bigger awards went to the top contenders, such as 12 Years a Slave‘s win for Best Motion Picture, Drama, but there were the upsets mentioned above and the quality of acceptance speeches varied from passionate and heartfelt to partially censored.  Looking ahead to Oscar Nominations, the buzz generated by the wins from the Globes can play a definite factor in nominations from the Academy but given that they are two separate bodies, any speculation as to the effect of a Golden Globe win on chances of an Oscar nomination or win is pure speculation.   Winners from the awards will likely see an increase in movie sales  and a definite increase in buzz and publicity surrounding the films so the possible effects will come to light when Oscar Nominations are announced on January 16, 2014.


Fashion

Best Looks of the Night:
Michelle Dockery looked elegant in a jewel-adorned Oscar de la Renta strapless gown and accessories from Bulgari’s Diva collection.  
A pregnant Olivia Wilde looked stunning in an emerald-green sequin gown by Gucci.  She was positively glowing while posing for cameras on the red carpet and showing off her baby bump.
Kerry Washington also showed off her baby bump in this gorgeous Balenciaga dress. The Scandal star looked radiant and exuberant on the carpet.
Julianna Margulies stunned on the carpet in this Andrew Gn dress. The Good Wife star showed off her sexy side in this dress and worked the carpet. 
Amy Poehler and Tina Fey were the hosts with the most at the awards! They both looked gorgeous in their red carpet gowns, as well as in their various stage looks.  They were dressed in Carolina Herrera, Stella McCartney and Ted Baker. Not a single look was a miss for the dynamic duo who are not only hilarious, talented, and amazing writers, but are sexy to boot! 

WELCOME! Let’s Talk About Award Season

This is a brand new blog about many different facets of entertainment.  It will include reviews of musicals and shows, sports talk and news from the entertainment industry.  We have set up this blog as a way to get more writing experience and in the future more exposure.  We hope you can join us on this journey and that you have fun and leave maybe a little more informed than you came.

Award Season

As you are probably aware, award season is upon us! Nominations have been announced for Screen Actors Guild and Golden Globe awards and the Oscars nominations will be announced January 16, 2014 on ABC.  Awards are excited for several reasons: the acclaim for the movies/shows and their creators, fashion and the red carpet attire at the actual awards, but my favorite part is being able to read the ‘For Your Consideration’ scripts that are made available to members and the public.  Here is a website which features links to all of the available 2014 scripts for award consideration and I highly recommend checking them out! They include everything from Dallas Buyer’s Club to Frozen.  Happy reading! 
Some Important Dates:
20th Screen Actor’s Guild Awards: January 18, 2014
71st Golden Globe Awards: January 12, 2014
86th Oscar Nominations Announcement: January 16, 2014
86th Oscar Awards: March 2, 2014
Another interesting thing about awards is who’s going to win, as well as, to what extent the SAG and Golden Globe results predict Oscar nominations and winners. One source I use for my predictions, other than personal taste and preference, is the Feinberg Forecast by Scott Feinberg of The Hollywood Reporter.  He makes some very interesting analyses of the results and updates frequently until the completion of awards season.  Take a look at it and a happy awards season to you!
