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.
Ben Affleck has come out in defence of Meryl Streep, following her stunning Golden Globes speech, in which the iconic actress took on President-elect Donald Trump.
George Clooney supported Meryl Streep’s politically charged Golden Globes speech tonight at an event he hosted in London with his wife, human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, to fete the release of Netflix documentary short The White Helmets . As he celebrated the work of the titular Syrian volunteer group who fight to rescue victims of the bombing campaigns of governments and terrorists in the country, he told Deadline that the fear of immigrants that fueled last year’s…
Whether it’s the anticipation, the heightened emotions or just downing way too many margaritas, it’s never long before one of Hollywood’s finest makes a right pigs ear of their acceptance speech. Here are some of the worst ever speeches from the Golden Globes. This year’s Golden Globes saw British actor Tom Hiddleston clinch an award for the hit TV series, ‘The Night Manager’.
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.
On taking to the stage to accept the award for ‘La La Land’ at the Golden Globes last night, Ryan Gosling walloped his speech out of the park. Not only did he mainly pay tribute to his wife Eva Mendes for holding things together while he was filming the hit musical, he also dedicated the award to Mendes’ brother, who passed away following a battle with cancer earlier this year. “While I was dancing and playing piano and having one of the best experiences I’ve ever had on a film, my lady was raising our daughter, pregnant with our second, and trying to help her brother fight his battle with cancer.
Tom Hiddleston doesn’t like to talk about his charity work… oh no, hang on, he DOES like to talk about his charity work. “I recently went to South Sudan, which is the youngest country in the world, in East Africa,” he explained as he got up on stage. “The idea that we could provide some relief and entertainment for the people who work for Unicef and Médecins Sans Frontières, and the World Food Program who are fixing the world in the places it is broken made me immensely proud.
Meryl Streep has battered Donald Trump in a furious speech at the Golden Globes, as she picked up the Cecil B. DeMille award for her outstanding contribution to entertainment. Urging the press to ‘hold power to account, and safeguard the truth’, she did not name Trump, but her intent was clear, using the whole of her time on stage to slam his behaviour. To a silent room, she also spoke of, in her opinion, ‘the most powerful performance of the year’, when Trump mocked disabled New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski on stage during a rally.
Spider-Man and Deadpool made out at the Golden Globes last night. As Ryan Gosling made his way to the stage to collect his award for Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical for his role in ‘La La Land’, the camera panned past the table where Ryan Reynolds was seated next to Andrew Garfield. Reynolds, also nominated for ‘Deadpool’ in the best category, consoled himself by planting a huge smacker on the lips of former ‘Spider-Man’ star Andrew Garfield.
Much is made of Colombian-American actress Sofia Vergara’s character in ‘Modern Family’ Gloria Delgado-Pritchett not always having a full command of the English language. The actress was introducing Sylvester Stallone’s daughters, Sophie, Sistine and Scarlet – this year’s co-Miss Golden Globes – to the stage. “The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has an anal tradition,” she announced, pretending to squint at the teleprompter.
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. In advance of Sunday night's ceremony (airing at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on NBC), let’s take a look at back at the stars who hit the red carpet for the 59th Golden Globes ceremony on Jan. 20, 2002
Twenty years ago at the Golden Globes, Braveheart , Apollo 13 and Sense and Sensibility were vying for the top prize, our favorite Friends were out in full force, and the hottest young couple on the carpet was Brad and Gwyneth. In anticipation of Sunday night’s ceremony (that’s airing at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on NBC) take a look at back at stars that hit the red carpet for the 53rd Annual Golden Globes Ceremony on January 21, 1996.
