Oh, What a Night! Our Favorite Moments from the 75th Golden Globes
The 75th Annual Golden Globes were held last night and there were definitely some surprises and memorable moments we can’t wait to discuss. We won’t do the typical run-down of the winners (you can check that out here), and we won’t go over all things you already know: how Hollywood went all Black in support of the #TimeOut Movement, how Oprah’s speech gave everyone the feels and how host Seth Meyers made us awkwardly laugh. But what we will do, is share some of our favorite moments from a night that had so many. Here we go…
Four BIG Wins for Three Billboards
Perhaps the biggest surprise of the night was how Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing Missouri cleaned up last night. The independent drama won Golden Globes for: Best Picture – Drama, Best Screenplay in a Motion Picture. Best Actress – Drama, and Best Supporting Actor- Drama.
Like many of the winners last night, Three Billboards was on our 14 Must Watch Films from TIFF 2017. We’re not saying we told you so, but we are recommending you see them all. If you’re still on the fence about Three Billboards, watch this clip.
James, Tommy and Dave
James Franco won Best Actor in a Musical Comedy for his role in The Disaster Artist. When he accepted his award, he brought the real Tommy Wiseau and his brother Dave Franco on-stage. It was a sweet and funny moment as James oh so swiftly pushed Tommy away from the mic. It looked a little like this. Last year, we had an exclusive interview with James and Dave about the film. Here’s what they had to say.
Two for Shape of Water
This critically acclaimed and fan favorite didn’t take home the coveted Best Picture award, but it did win Best Original Score, Alexandre Desplat and Best Director, Guillermo del Toro. Not too shabby if you ask us. The Shape of Water is unique and touching and will likely get some love when the Oscars nominations roll around. We were fortunate enough to chat with the cast earlier this year. Watch our interview where they say it’s a healing, magical and emotional film.
Congrats to Coco
Coco won for Best Animated Feature. This vibrant and original story is a favorite of many. It was a tender moment when director Lee Unkrich accepted the award and spoke about how film took 6 years to make. Now that’s dedication! Clearly this film was a labor of love and a well deserved win. If you haven’t already, take a peek at our interviews with the cast.
Sam Rockwell Hearts Indie Films
This year’s winner for Best Actor in a Supporting Role went to Sam Rockwell for his role in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri. During his acceptance speech, he gave a shout-out to independent films. We’re right there with you, Sam! We heart indie films too and here’s why.
Awards Shows LOVE A24
A24 cleaned up last night. The studio that won Best Picture at the Oscars last year for Moonlight, took home Golden Globes wins for Best Motion Picture Musical or Comedy – Lady Bird, Best Actor Musical or Comedy – James Franco, The Disaster Artist, Best Actress Musical or Comedy - Saoirse Ronan, Lady Bird. Films from this studio are shining bright. We’ll see if this trend continues as we get closer to Oscar nominations. The anticipation is already killings us! 😊
