The 2017 Golden Globe Awards was nothing short of amazing this year.
Jimmy Fallon opened the award show with an over-the-top introduction, including recreating a scene from La La Land.
Fallon also played the role as the host, while Questlove from the Roots was the DJ for the award show.
La La Land was a big winner, winning a record of seven awards, including Best Motion Picture-Musical or Comedy. Emma Stone took home Best Actress, Film Comedy/Musical, while Ryan Gosling Best Actor, Film Comedy/Musical. Damien Chazelle won Best Director and Best Screenplay, and the film also snagged an award for Best Original Song, “City of Songs”, and Best Original Score.
Other actors and filmmakers were big winners during the award show.
Tracee Ellis Ross won Best Actress, TV Comedy/Musical for her role in Black’ish. She is now the second African American woman who has won that award, the first was Debbie Allen in 1983. During her speech, she dedicated her award to the women of color who helped pave the way for her, as well as her family.
Atlanta won Best TV Series, Comedy/Musical, and during the acceptance speech, Donald Glover, who is not only the creator but also won Best Male Actor for his role on the show, thanked the hip-hop group Migos for appearing in the show and making the song “Bad and Boujee”, which was featured in the show. Glover claims it's “the best song ever”.
Sarah Paulson won Best Actress, Limited TV Series or TV Movie for American Crime Story: Th People Vs. O.J. Simpson. The series also won Best Limited Series or TV movie.
Viola Davis won Best Supporting Actress, Film for Fences. During her acceptance speech, she dedicated her speech to her husband, her daughter, her co-star, Denzel Washington who was also nominated at the Golden Globes, and her father, who she admitted only had a 5th grade education but saw the connection between the story of Fences and her father, and the many fathers out there that can relate to the story.
Zootopia won Best Animated Motion Picture, and Sylvester Stallion and Carl Weathers made a special appearance in honor of the 40th anniversary of the movie, Rocky.
Meryl Streep was honored for her work and was awarded a Lifetime Achievement award. The legendary actress used her speech to bring up diversity and throw shade at Donald Trump and those who frown upon immigrants. At the end of her speech, Streep quoted fellow actress and friend, Carrie Fisher, who recently passed away, and said, “as the departed Princess Leia told me, ‘take your broken heart turn it into art.’”
The show ended on a high note as the film (which happens to be one of my favorites of 2016), Moonlight, took home one of the biggest awards and the last award of the night, Best Drama Motion Picture.
