Idol Chatter


The 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards, hosted by Jimmy Fallon, didn’t disappoint with it’s unpredictability keeping us on our toes and the several twists and turns during the three hour show.

The late-night host began the evening with an epic recreation of “La La Land’s” opening number, and Brad Pitt stole the end of the show when he surprised audiences by gracing the stage. Meryl Streep delivered a heated anti-Donald Trump speech that left the internet either cheering or angry, and the teleprompter broke during the opening monologue. All the moments kept audiences entertained and left them with much to talk about.

The Golden Globe Awards, which are run by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, honor the best in TV and film from the past year. The musical “La La Land” swept the board in the film categories, winning a record 7 awards. This included: best picture comedy or musical, and wins by stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone.

Three stars of BBC spy drama “The Night Manager” – Tom Hiddleston, Olivia Colman and Hugh Laurie – won acting prizes. Claire Foy, who plays the Queen in Netflix’s royal epic “The Crown,” was named best TV drama actress and the show won best TV drama. In the other TV categories, “The People v OJ Simpson: American Crime Story” and “Atlanta” won two awards each.

There were several surprises. Isabelle Huppert took best actress in a drama for the French film “Elle,” beating Natalie Portman, who was favored to win for “Jackie.” “Manchester by the Sea,” despite five nominations, was honored only in the best actor category for Casey Affleck. HBO, despite 14 nominations, the most of any network, was shut out altogether.
