A Night of Puffed Sleeves and Golden Globes

Gervais GG
Ricky Gervais

Last night Hollywood put on a dress with big sleeves and went to the biggest booze fest Golden Globes.  Ricky Gervais started the evening with his typical scorched earth humor, telling jokes about pedophilia, Jeffrey Epstein, and Felicity Huffman’s college admissions scandal.  I have a pretty irreverent sense of humor, so, I admit that I enjoyed this opening immensely.

 

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood was a big winner last night, picking up awards for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, Best Supporting Actor (Brad Pitt), and Best Screenplay (Quentin Tarantino).  Pitt gushed about his costar, Leonardo DiCaprio, even making a Titanic joke during his acceptance speech.

Nora GG
Awkwafina

Other than Hollywood, no other film won more than two awards.  The World War I drama 1917 won awards for Best Motion Picture – Drama and Best Director (Sam Mendes), the Elton John bio-pic Rocketman won for Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy (Taron Egerton) and Best Song, and Joker won for Best Actor – Motion Picture Drama (Joaquin Phoenix) and Best Original Score.  Hildur Guðnadóttir, the composer of Joker, made history last night as the first solo woman to win a Golden Globe in the Original Score category. The other history maker of the evening was Awkwafina, who is the first Asian-American woman to win the Best Actress – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy award, which she won for her role in The Farewell.

 

Fleabag 3 GG
Cast of Fleabag

I will say that my favorite moment of the entire evening was curtesy of the fabulous Phoebe Waller-Bridge.  After winning the award for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy for Fleabag, Waller-Bridge thanked Barak Obama for putting Fleabag on his list of favorites for 2019.  As Waller-Bridge said, “I would like to thank Obama for putting us on his list.  As some of you may know, he’s always been on mine.”  For those of you who don’t get that reference, see the link below.  You’re welcome.

So, what did you guys think of the awards?  Were you as mystified as I was about all of the actresses donning dresses with HUGE sleeves?  Did they want a place to put the Golden Globe after winning?  Let us know in the comments section below!
