The Golden Globes 2017

THE GOLDEN GLOBES 2017 

The 2017 Golden Globes Awards 2017 were held Sunday January 8th.  Jimmy Fallon, the Tonight’s Show host is the MC of the Ceremonies held at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills.

Different from the Academy Awards, of course, as this is a dinner/drinks even compared to the Oscars stage show.  So there are no spectacular dance presentations for the Golden Globes.  But the glamour is definitely still present.

Most noticeable this year is the hosting of Fallon taking over from Ricky Gervais.  Gervais made fun of everyone while Fallon made fun of himself.  But the biting really funny atmosphere developed by Gervais is sadly missing, while Fallon does do an admirable job.

As expected, it is LALA LAND all the way, the film winning in multiple categories as in Best Actor (Ryan Gosling), Actress (Emma Stone) and director Damien Chazeelle a well as Best Picture (Comedy or Musical) and others.

The lifetime achievement award went to Meryl Streep who gave a moving speech on journalism.  Streep made a nasty remark about Presient-elect Trump, that will surely get some 'news' tomorrow.  But the Awards Best moment was the tribute given to the mother/daughter’s recent passing away Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher.

The Best Speech was probably delivered by Hugh Laurie whose speech was referenced by three other winners.  Ryan Gosling gave a moving speech praising his wife and late brother-in-law.

My favourite win is French actress Isabelle Huppert for best Actress in her role in Paul Verhoeven’s ELLE.  Unexpected was the win for MOONLIGHT over MANCHESTER BY THE SEA for Best Drama.  But both are excellent films.

An overall enjoyable Golden Globes presentation, but I personally miss Ricky Gervais who always made me laugh out loud.  Hope they bring him back!
