The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the body behind the Golden Globes, has admitted that its former president Philip Berk touched actor Brendan Fraser inappropriately, but that he did so in jest.
In what's so far been a refreshingly unpredictable race for Oscar's Best Picture trophy, a pair of clear-cut favorites appear to be emerging out of the fog.
In a not-entirely out of character curveball, it sounds like the Golden Globes is to recognise Jordan Peele's hit movie 'Get Out' not as a horror, which it is, but as a comedy (which it isn't).
In pole position for this year’s prize is ‘La La Land’, a film arriving as much-needed respite following the many shocks, horrors and uncertainties of 2016. ‘La La Land’ is a mug of hot chocolate after getting caught in a sleet storm. It’s a sincere homage to a bygone Hollywood era, and so there are certainly similarities to be drawn with another Oscar-winner – ‘The Artist’, but none favour the 2012 Best Picture winner. What undoes Michel Hazanavicius’ well-meaning ode to silent movies is its knowing winks, and a single line of illusion-cracking dialogue. ‘La La Land’ by contrast is a wholehearted and true resurrection of a long-forgotten form which pays tribute in all the right ways, but is contemporary also, making the genre work for modern audiences but never trampling its legacy.
Not content with describing Meryl Streep as a “Hillary lover” late on Sunday after the actress blasted the president-elect in her Cecil B. DeMille Award acceptance speech at the Golden Globes, Donald Trump hit up Twitter in the early hours of Monday to lash out further. Across three tweets, he described the multi-Oscar winner as “one of most over-rated actresses in Hollywood,” saying she was a “Hillary flunk who lost big” and that she had “attacked” him without merit over claims he had ridiculed a disabled reporter. Meryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn’t know me but attacked last night at the Golden Globes.
Brad Pitt may be having a rough go of it in his personal life, but professionally things are going quite well.
Jimmy Fallon must have thought he had wandered onto the Saturday Night Live soundstage at the top of the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards. “I can do impressions,” he joked, before remembering something else that always used to work for him at SNL: “Cut to Justin Timberlake, please.
Tonight, Sylvester Stallone’s three daughters share the duties of Miss Golden Globe: the first time the title (traditionally given to a promising young talent from a famous family) has been bestowed simultaneously on siblings. The Stallone sisters — Sophia, 20, Sistine, 18, and Scarlet, 14 — captured the world’s attention at last year’s Golden Globes ceremony when they walked the red carpet with their father (who took home his first-ever Globe that night for Creed) and mother Jennifer Flavin.
No doubt about it, Miss Golden Globe is the most nepotistic title in Tinseltown. A fixture at the Hollywood Foreign Press’ annual ceremony since 1963, the designation originally was bestowed to up-and-coming performers in film and TV. For the past four decades, the title became less laudatory and more honorary, specifically going to Hollywood offspring (typically female, but there have been a couple Mr. Golden Globes along the way) who aspired to follow in their parents’ vaunted footsteps.
Fifteen years ago at the Golden Globes, A Beautiful Mind and Moulin Rouge scored the top movie prizes and the A-list couples in attendance included Brad Pitt and then-wife Jennifer Aniston, and Angelina Jolie and then-husband Billy Bob Thornton.
