Big Amazement At Golden Globes 2019

DungCNT |Jan 08, 2019

Bohemian Rhapsody as best drama? The groundbreaking Black Panther snubbed? And nothing for Bradley Cooper — really?

golden globes hits and misses At the Golden Globes 2019, everyone is so looking forward to seeing an exuberant Lady Gaga being on stage in her periwinkle gown. Contrary to everyone's expectation, Glenn Close achieved the Golden Globes. However, her speech about the fulfilment need of women besides their family attracted everyone's attention and became the spotlight of the night.

Last year, the Golden Globes was about movement #Metoo and Time's up. In the previous two years, politics was the topic of the award event. But the Golden Globes 2019 didn't talk about activist or politics much. Nevertheless, actress Glenn Close's speech or speeches from actress Sandra Oh and Regina King mentioned issues relating to equality and diversity alive much more personally.

And for sure that there were big surprises: Bohemian Rhapsody won the best dramatic motion picture? The film Black Panther snubbed? And Bradley Cooper went home empty-handed? Below are the night's memorable moments and surprises at the Golden Globes 2019.

The power of nice

Appearing on stage for the opening speech, Oh and Andy Samberg explained for the reason why they had been selected. Both of them were “the only two people left in Hollywood who haven’t gotten in trouble for saying something offensive”. Then the couple leafed through that by saying beautiful things to roast everyone.

Actor Christian Bale thanks Satan

Accepting the award for best actor category was actor Christian Bale for his character as American Vice President Dick Cheney in Vice. He sent a big thank-you to director Adam McKay and castmates. Satan was also in his extensive thank-you list because he gave him inspiration for his role in such a biographical film. Moreover, he shared that he might strive to play Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell next.

An honourable night for "old men."

Mary Poppins Returns may have got nothing at the award. But actor Dick Van Dyke received a significant ovation when the 93-year-old actor appeared with Emily Blunt starring as Marry. Despite just playing a supporting role in the movie, he performed his character wonderfully. And Michael Douglas, who achieved the Globe for The Kominsky Method, showed his excitement at “alte kakers rule!,”, a Yiddish term for old men. He also devoted the award to his father, Kirk Douglas.

A gender equality movement challenge

After a year the carpet of Globes was deep into "black sea" for supporting #Metoo and Time's up Movement, colorful gowns came back. Some also wore ribbons loudly saying the slogan TIME'S UP. This is also a signal marking that the movement of gender equality has begun for the second time. Alyssa Milano was on the carpet. She is the actor who posted hashtag #Metoo on her Tweeter account and made the movement widespread. The actress also noted that a lovely sisterhood "has formed".

If Beale Street Could Talk's actress Regina King made a precious conference in Time's Up movement. In the conference, she promised that women would account for 50% in members of staff of her producing projects in the next two years. Regina challenged other businesses to do as she said.

Oh expressed her emotions for taking responsibility to host the show

After delivering a memorable speech with Samberg, Oh suddenly turned to be emotional when she talked about why she accepted to host this show as well as how she got over her fear to celebrate the event. She said "“I wanted to be here to look out on this audience and witness this moment of change. I am not fooling myself. Next year could be different. But right now this moment is real”. She shared the night with her parents as she took home the best actress award in TV series Killing Eve.

Close sent women a heart-warming message

Close beat out the overall to achieve the best actress in a drama motion picture category. She seemed to be surprised as everybody else. But then Close delivered a heartfelt monologue urging women to find their personal fulfilment via her role in The Wife. The actress said this reminded her of her mother who sublimated her life to her father. However, she added "we have to find personal fulfilment. We have to follow our dreams. We have to say, I can do that, and I should be allowed to do that.”

Lady Gaga's win

It seemed that Lady Gaga went home empty-handed when she lost her chance to win the award best actress in the motion picture category. But luckily, she took home the best original song with Shallow, which is a song duet of the actress and Cooper in the film A star is born. More interesting, she co-wrote this song with Mark Ronson. In her speech, the singer mentioned difficulties that challenge women in music. She shared “As a woman in music it is really hard to be taken seriously as musician and as a songwriter,” Fortunately, she had co-writers who supported her in this career.

"Favorite" thing of Colman

Olivia Colman obtained the best actress award in comedy-drama film The Favourite. She wanted to express how the movie meant to her, but she couldn't think of. She noted that one of the things she loves most in the film making process was she “constantly ate through the film.”

What was that?

We are not sure about what he said in his monologue accepting Cecil B. DeMille Award, especially as he mentioned about ships and said: “Tag, you’re it!” but Jeff Bridges is known as a significant icon in the film The Big Lebowski, which means that following him wasn't so easy. It was quite fun to experience his joy. It's just awful when he wasn't putting on a bathrobe. Harrison Ford came next and said “Nobody told me I had to follow Jeff Bridges.”

Taylor Swift wowed Elisabeth Moss with her sweet video

It was a sweet moment at the red carpet as popular star of  TV series The Handmaid’s Tale Elisabeth Moss knew that Taylor Swift was one of her fans. Ryan Seacrest gave her a Swift's video. “I can’t believe she even knows who I am!!” Moss' excitement shows that stars can be like us sometimes.
