The Highlights at the 76th Golden Globe Awards

The bets are off at the Golden Globe Awards 2019

The awards season has finally kicked off with the 76th Golden Globe Awards. The highly anticipated show, hosted by actress Sandra Oh and actor Andy Samberg, made history with its nominations and wins that left the fans and industry insiders awestruck.

First major award of the night went to the event host, Sandra Oh. She won the Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Drama for “Killing Eve”. The highly-favoured movie to win the award for Best Motion Picture – Drama, “A Star Is Born” lost to “Bohemian Rhapsody”, a biopic of Queen frontman, Freddie Mercury.

Rami Malek won Best Actor in Motion Picture – Drama for his role as Freddie Mercury. In his speech he said, “there’s only one thing we needed to do, and that was to celebrate Freddie Mercury in this film. He is a marvel. There is only one Freddie Mercury, and nothing would compromise us giving him the love, celebration and adulation he deserves.”

Even though “A Star Is Born” does not win the Best Motion Picture, Lady Gaga and Mark Ronson won Best Original Song – Motion Picture for their song “Shallow”. “[Bradley Cooper] took our heartfelt, honest tune and gave it emotional resonance we could have only dreamed of,” says Ronson when he accepted the award alongside Gaga. He continued, “You’re the one who led us into the deep waters and made the song what it is.”

The “Crazy Rich Asians” cast left the Golden Globe Awards 2019 empty-handed after being nominated for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and Constance Wu for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy categories. Constance Wu is praised for becoming the first Asian woman in 50 years to be nominated for the award. She lost the award to Glenn Close who played a role as a longtime partner to a famous author, who has spent decades tending to the needs (and raising the children) of a literary sensation in “The Wife”.

As quoted from the Entertainment Weekly, Glenn Close gave an emotional speech at the awards, highlighting how important for a woman to fulfil her dreams, “It took 14 years to make this film … it was called The Wife; I think that’s why it took 14 years to get made,” the three-time Oscar nominee continued with tears in her eyes. “But, anyway, to play a character is so internal. And I’m thinking of my mom who really submitted herself to my father her whole life. In her eighties, she said, ‘I feel I haven’t accomplished anything.’ It was so not right. I feel what I learned through this whole experience [is] we are women and nurturers. We have our children and our husbands if we are lucky enough, our partners, whoever. But we have to find personal fulfilment. We have to follow our dreams. And we have to say, ‘I have to do that, and I should be allowed to do that.’”

This week’s hit movie in Indonesia, “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse” as expected by the audience won the Best Motion Picture – Animated category. “Anyone can wear the mask; everyone is powerful, and everyone is necessary, and that is the spirit of the movie,” said Peter Ramsey, who directed with Bob Persichetti and Rodney Rothman, backstage at the Golden Globes. “We all felt deeply that anyone can have this kind of experience and be this kind of hero. The story of Miles Morales was a way to crystallize all of those feelings into one character.” “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse” has successfully won over Pixar’s “Incredibles 2”, Disney’s “Ralph Breaks the Internet”, Wes Anderson’s “Isle of Dogs”, and GKIDS’ “Mirai”.

Not as surprising as the other highlights of the night, one of the biggest internet entertainment services, Netflix, dominated the awards by scoring a high profile wins for “Roma” as the Best Motion Picture – Foreign Language, and taking home a Best TV Comedy category for “The Kominsky Method”.
