In the middle of the rainy winter of our discontent, with both a mega-storm and an impeding inauguration in the horizon, it was another day of sun for the 74th Golden Globe Awards. The cold, wet front promised by the weather forecast decided to linger longer in Northern California, and the stars were greeted at the Beverly by the usual glorious balmy weather of the City of Stars – providing the perfect frame for the night’s big winner, Damien Chazelle’s La La Land, which, in a record-breaking sweep, went home with Globes in all the seven categories it had been nominated: best motion picture, musical-comedy; best director and screenplay, Damien Chazelle; best actress, musical-comedy, Emma Stone; best actor, musical-comedy, Ryan Gosling (who visibly blushed when his name was announced, to the delight of audiences near and far); best original song, “City of Stars”, and best original score, Justin Hurwitz.

"Moonlight" - Best Motion Picture - Drama

 

On the drama side voters widened their choices. Director Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight won as best motion picture- drama (and was greeted by a standing ovation by the International Ballroom), but saw one of his strongest categories – best supporting actors, in which both Mahershala Ali and Naomie Harris were favorites- go to other talent: Aaron Taylor-Johnson for Nocturnal Animals and Viola Davis for Fences.

Casey Affleck Won the Golden Globe for Best Actor-Drama for his Work in "Manchester By The Sea"

 

 

Paul Verhoeven’s controversial French Foreign Language Film "Elle" had a strong showing with two wins – best foreign language film and best actress-drama for Isabelle Huppert, who beat Natalie Portman and Amy Adams.

 

Zootopia Won in the Best Animated Feature Category

  

 

Faithful to its tradition of recognizing upcoming talent and trend, the 2017 Globes showered awards on FX’s Atlanta – best series, musical or comedy, and best actor in a TV series, musical-comedy for Donald Glover. Netflix’s newcomer The Crown beat a lot of heavy contenders, nabbing Globes for best series-drama and best actress in a drama series for Claire Foy, with Billy Bob Thornton taking the acting Globe in the category for another new series, Amazon’s Goliath. AMC’s limited series The Night Manager took almost all Globes in its category – with kudos to Tom Hiddleston and supporting actors Hugh Laurie and Olivia Colman – with The People Vs OJ Simpson taking the rest: best limited series and best actress/limited series for Sarah Paulson.

 

Meryl Streep 

 

Amidst all the festivities our recipient of this year’s Cecil B. deMille Award, Meryl Streep – introduced by Viola Davis with an eloquent, poignant speech about her multiple powers of observation and creation- took upon her to remind the gilded audience of what lies ahead. Streep’s passionate speech lambasted Donald Trump and its supporters and urged the creative community to band together to preserve freedom. In an elegant gesture, Streep reminded all of the need to support a free press - “they will need us, and we certainly need them.” Finally, in a voice overcome by emotion, Streep recalled her friend, “Princess Leia “, and one of her favorite sayings: “take your broken heart and make it into art.”

"La La Land" Won Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comdy 

 

Since it opened the Venice Film Festival in August, "La La Land" was the frontrunner for best film and best director at the Academy Awards, with its main rivals "Moonlight" and "Manchester by the Sea"

 

"Moonlight" Won Best Motion Picture - Drama

 

TRace Ellis Ross

 

Perhaps most notable is the performance of "Moonlight", with just one nomination fewer than "La La Land". The Miami-set story of a young black man dealing with his sexuality now looks like the leading film to help end the Academy Awards race controversy of the last two years, with Mahershala Ali heavily tipped to win best supporting actor.

 

 Viola Davis and Denzel Washington Fences

 Viola Davis and Denzel Washington - "Fences"

 

While Fences performed less strongly overall, Viola Davis won Best Supporting Actress. A welcome sign that after two years of #OscarsSoWhite, the 2016 Academy Awards are likely to be more diverse.

 

 

Florence Foster Jenkins, based on the true story of a New York heiress who dreams of being an opera star, had four nominations, including a 30th Golden Globe nod for Meryl Streep and one for Hugh Grant.  It was also up for Best Comedy or Musical Film.
