A rather big shock came from last nights Golden Globe awards with Bohemian Rhapsody taking the Best Picture award in Drama. Not something I was expecting at all, I have to say I am happy with the other winners!
Here we go the nominations for the 2019 Golden Globe awards!
Best film – drama
If Beale Street Could Talk
A Star Is Born
Here we got the winners of the 2018 Golden Globe Awards, looking forward to eventually seeing a lot of these films over the next couple of months!
Even though the Golden Globes are no longer Broadcast in the UK, I was just looking on Twitter at the arrivals on the Red Carpet and could not help but post this one of one of my favourite actresses Catherine Zeta Jones. Her dress really does look like something out of Chicago!
Hell or High Water
Manchester by the Sea
The road to the Oscars is very much starting with the nominations coming out thick and fast for all of the other awards shows. The Golden Globes is always a popular show and the nominations for the 2012 Golden Globes are as follows. The Golden Globes combine the best of film and television into the one awards show.
Best Motion Picture – Drama
The Ides of March
Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical
Midnight in Paris
My Week with Marilyn
I have grown to enjoy the Golden Globes over the past few years, possibly even more than Oscars. They seem to be more relaxed and fun. Everyone seems to have a good time. This year the big talking point fell around Ricky Gervais who was hosting, some of his jokes not going down very well with the audience. This then lead to him disappearing for more than an hour from the ceremony, leading to talk that he was stopped from coming on to deliver monologue.
So the talk surrounding the Globes is that Gervais will not be asked to host the show for the third time in a row. I personally found his jokes to be rather amusing and I am not usually a massive fan of his. But I guess for the American audience Gervais’ still was a bit extreme. Best moment had to be introducing Bruce Willis as Ashton Kutcher’s dad!
My favorite speech had to be from Robert De Niro when he picked up the Cecil B. DeMille Award (lifetime achievement). He managed to mix thanking people, talking about his career with a very heart warming feel and jokes put in to even it all out. He really is something else!
Colin Firth continued his collection of awards for his performance in “The King’s Speech” and looks almost certain to pick up the Oscar next month. His speech was also just fantastic, being very funny as well. It really is brilliant to see Colin getting the recognition that he so rightly deserves.
My favorite moment had to come from Michael Douglas appearing on stage to present the Best Film (Drama) award. He received a standing ovation from everyone in the room and responded with “there has to be an easier way to get a standing ovation”. It was brilliant to see him on a stage a few days after being given the all clear from his cancer battle. Definetly the most tear jerking moment in the whole ceremony. An icon to all!
The Winners are . . .
Ahead of this Sunday’s Golden Globes and the up and coming Oscars, Colin Firth has been awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He is tipped to be nominated and win the best actor Oscar at this years awards.
Firth has come along way since being Mr Darcy in the TV adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. Over the years he has taken on some very different roles. The last couple of years the roles he has taken on have really helped to show what a fantastic actor he is. When it comes to the romantic comedy films such as Bridget Jones Diary and Love Actually he is always the nice guy. In real life he seems to be just as nice as he is in those roles.
It really is fantastic seeing a British actor going so far in Hollywood and getting a star on the Walk of Fame. The question now is will the Oscar be following for Mr Firth? Let’s hope so, he really does put in a brilliant performance in The King’s Speech. We don’t have much longer to wait, to see how many more awards Colin is going to pick up over awards season.
The nominations for the 2011 Golden Globe awards were announced today. The nominee’s are:
Best Picture: Drama
The King’s Speech
The Social Network
Best Picture: Comedy or Musical
Alice in Wonderland
The Kids Are Alright
The 67th Annual Golden Globes take place on 17th January 2010 and are the first major awards to be handed out in what will be another busy awards season. Because I had been slipping with the blog for the last few weeks I still had not posted this years nominations.
Closer to the ceremony I will post my predictions on who I think will walk away with the Golden Globe on the night.
