Highlights from the 2018 Golden Globe Awards

The 75th Annual Golden Globes launched the 2018 Awards Season with a bang with powerful statements for social change and a whole lot of girl power.

On the red carpet, the question shifted from “Who are you wearing?” to “Why are you wearing black?” as celebrities and activists arrived in black dresses and black suits in a fashion statement of solidarity for #TimesUp. The movement is intended to show support for those who have experienced sexual harassment, abuse, and discrimination in all industries and to demand safety and equality in all workplaces. By turning the color of mourning into a color of awakening, the #WhyIWearBlack conversation is a step forward in ensuring that the time is now for social change.

Here’s a recap of some more of the most memorable Golden Globe moments that honored the best in film and television in 2017.

Cheers To You… Amy Poehler

Congratulations to Amy Poehler on winning her first Golden Globe!

Amy, who co-hosted the 71st annual Golden Globes award ceremony with her partner-in-comedic-crime Tina Fey, won Best Actress in a Television Series (Comedy) for her portrayal of Leslie Knope on NBC’s Parks & Recreation (which was nominated for Best Television Series (Comedy) for the first time this year). It was due time for the funniest lady on television today to receive the recognition she has so long deserved! In a tv-landscape filled with a lot of aggression and negativity, we need heartwarming programs like Parks and lovable characters like the eternally optimistic Leslie Knope to remind us of the good in the world.

The following is one of my favourite Leslie Knope quotations:

In times of stress or moments of transition, sometimes it can feel like the whole world is closing in on you. When that happens, you should close your eyes, take a deep breath, listen to the people that love you when they give you advice, and remember what really matters. And if you have the ability to go to Paris, by all means, go to Paris.”

Cheers to Amy Poehler, Leslie Knope, and Parks & Recreation for this victorious victory!

Highlights from the 2012 Golden Globes

I enjoyed watching tonight’s award ceremony! I thought that 2012 was a good year for movies in particular (especially in the Comedy or Musical genre) so I was looking forward to seeing some of my favourite films get the recognition they so deserve.

Highlights of the evening: The Artist winning Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical, Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical (Jean DuJardin) and Best Score. The Adventures of Tintin being named Best Animated Film, Martin Scorsese winning Best Director for Hugo, Woody Allen winning Best Screenplay for Midnight in Paris, Michelle Williams winning Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical for My Week With Marilyn, Queen Meryl Streep winning Best Actress in a Drama for The Iron Lady, Octavia Spencer winning Best Supporting Actress in a Drama for The Help, the legendary Sidney Poitier presenting the Cecil B. DeMille Award to Morgan Freeman (a.k.a God), and a few cute friendship moments (Tiny Fey photobombing fellow funny lady Amy Poehler, Joseph Gordon-Levitt clapping for presenter and 50/50 co-star Seth Rogan).

Additions to my ‘Need To Watch’ List: Modern Family, Downton Abbey, Mildred Pierce, The Iron Lady, and The Descendants

Best Reaction: Sir Elton John reacting to Madonna’s win in the Best Original Song category.

‘Better Luck Next Time’ award: Leonardo DiCaprio (I felt so bad for Leo. Please, just give him SOMETHING!)

MVP: Uggie, that playful and lovable Jack Russell Terrier from The Artist! He can play dead and excite the audience at the same time!

Best Dressed: Emma Stone in Lanvin. Also liked Zooey Deschanel’s tuxedo nails and what I saw of Kate Winslet, Viola Davis, Dianna Agron, Nicole Kidman, and Evan Rachel Wood.
