The Golden Globes aren’t the first awards show of the season or the biggest, but people work really hard on movies and TV shows every year, so they deserve multiple opportunities to be highlighted for their cultural contributions. This year’s ceremony doesn’t have the added thrill of foreshadowing Leonardo DiCaprio’s quest for Oscar glory like last year’s Golden Globes, but the vicious war for accolades between prestige favorites Manchester By The Sea, Moonlight, La La Land, and Deadpool will be exciting in its own right. Then there are the TV categories, which will finally be pitting newcomers This Is Us, Westworld, The Crown, and Stranger Things against Game Of Thrones.
After Jimmy Fallon’s La La Land-inspired intro and some jokey references to his buddy Donald Trump, the awards started to come fast and furious. Atlanta won for Best TV Comedy, Tracee Ellis Ross won Best Actress In a TV Comedy, and then People V. O.J. Simpson continued its winning streak with Sarah Paulson getting Best Actress In A TV Movie Or Limited Series and the show itself winning Best TV Movie Or Limited Series. Also, The Night Manager cleaned up surprisingly well, but that’s probably because it included so many charming British people, which helped give Netflix’s The Crown a big boost as well.
La La Land won the first couple movie-related awards, specifically Best Original Score and Best Original Song, but as the night went on, it became increasingly clear that the movie simply couldn’t be stopped. Ryan Gosling won Best Actor In A Comedy/Musical, Damien Chazelle won the Best Director and Best Screenplay equivalents, Emma Stone won Best Actress, and the film won Best Musical/Comedy. Basically, if La La Land were eligible for the Cecil B. DeMille Achievement Award, it probably would’ve even won that.
The drama categories shook things up a little more, with Elle star Isabelle Huppert winning Best Actress, Casey Affleck winning for Manchester By The Sea, and Moonlight finally getting some attention for Best Picture.
