It was the night of celebration, a night of awards, and oh, yes, a night filled with some of the biggest stars in Hollywood. The 72nd annual Golden Globes aired Sunday with none other than Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as the show’s hosts. A perfect night for the everyday entertainment seeking viewer, the event brought light to some of the years most inspirational and high-artistic valued movies and shows. Tina and Amy poked fun at the star-studded guests and confronted the various elephants which struck down towards North Korea and Bill Cosby’s latest actions. However, their best joke would be the jab at George Clooney when talking about his decorated and charitable wife, reaping “Amal is a human rights lawyer who worked on the Enron case, was an adviser to Kofi Annan regarding Syria, and was selected for a three-person U.N. commission investigating rules of war violations in the Gaza Strip. So tonight, her husband is getting a lifetime achievement award.”
It’s safe to say the show started off with a bang, and carried fervently throughout the entire event. The nominees for the most popular and overall best movies this year included but not limited to: The Grand Budapest Hotel, Birdman, Boyhood, The Theory of Everything, Whiplash, Selma, and Big Eyes. I myself have yet to enjoy any of these so-called legendaries, but am eager to see them. Each of these films amplified the miraculous taste and essence of the year’s movie choices and set up shop for the incoming movies for next year. Boyhood was able to push past the others and take home the prize of Best Motion Picture- Drama. It is a flick that follows the direct aging of a small boy and his parents achieving a span of 12 years. The Grand Budapest Hotel was able to steal the awards for Best Motion Picture- Comedy or Musical with it’s innovative and radical spin of a Wes Anderson vision.
Adding to the tremendous list of movies, some television shows were noted and experienced some of the same winnings. These included: Fargo, The Affair, Downton Abbey, Transparent, Jane the Virgin, House of Cards. However, the Best TV Drama was upheld by The Affair.
All in all, the night of stars and spot-lights was one to remember. And I’m sure next year will be of even higher means.
