74th Annual Golden Globes

golden globes.jpg

A night full of talented stars, awkward jokes, and too-long acceptance speeches. Yes, the Golden Globes are here again!

The event kicked off with an amazing opening number (seriously, how amazing were the kids from Stranger Things?!). This was followed by a monologue that was equal parts awkward and hilarious.

There were, of course, jokes made about Donald Trump and what an awful year 2016 was.

And then it was onto the awards!

73rd Golden Globe Awards

GG Awards.jpg

What a great night! I have to say, of all the awards shows I always find the Golden Globes to be the most awkward.

This year the show was hosted by Ricky Gervais who wasted no time with the (slightly offensive), but totally hilarious jokes. He should host all the awards shows, he’s so fantastically funny and he just holds nothing back.

There were many films and shows nominated this year, but Carol dominated with five nominations while Steve Jobs, The Big Short, and The Revenant came next with four nominations.

Denzel Washington received the Cecil B. DeMille Award tonight (presented by Tom Hanks), an award given to an actor for outstanding work in the entertainment world. After seeing the video depicting his time in the acting world it really isn’t surprising he won.

Really it was such a great night with so many amazing actors and actresses winning awards for their hard work. I was hoping “See You Again” would win for Best Original Song, but Sam Smith is such a great performer and I’m still so happy he won.

I was really pleased Brie Larson won for Best Actress in a Drama. I haven’t seen The Boy yet, but I’ve heard nothing but good things and this only makes me more excited to watch it!

I was really excited to learn that Harrison Ford would be presenting tonight and, no surprise, he presented the winner of the final award of the night. I suspect that the awards shows over the course of the year will be dominated by Star Wars which I’m super happy about.

2016 is definitely looking like it’ll be a great year for film and I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen.

What award were you most happy about?

Streamys 2015 Recap

streamy awards

The 2015 Streamy Awards happened last night! For anyone who doesn’t know what the Streamy Awards is, it’s an awards show to honour the best in online video and the people behind it. Basically it’s a regular award show, but it’s better cause it’s the Internet.

Last night’s event was hosted by Grace Helbig and Tyler Oakley who were amazing and hilarious and looked fantastic!

There were many performances throughout the night. Hailee Steinfeld performed “Love Myself” and from what I’ve read online it seems like this was actually her first live performance of the song. Alessia Cara sang “Here” and she sounded completely amazing.

“Cheerleader” by OMI was of course sang at the Streamys as it was one of the biggest songs of the summer.

Future also performed his song “March Madness” and there wasn’t a ton of enthusiasm for this song. Anyone watching on TV reported that majority of the song was a whole lot of censored bleeps. However, I think it’s safe to say they didn’t miss much since anyone (myself included) watching on the Youtube live stream couldn’t understand what he was saying anyway.

The final two performances of the night were A Great Big World feat. Futuristic as they sang “Hold Each Other” and then to end the night Sir Mix A Lot came out on stage and sang “Baby Got Back”. Because why not, this is the Internet.

There were so many awards to be presented last night and so many others not even shown. Each award was presented by two people with the nominees being presented by a well-known Youtuber.

You can find the full list of nominees/winners as well as channel links down below!

Ciara and Michelle Phan presented the award for “Best Comedy Series” with the nominees being introduced by Honest Trailers.

“Best Beauty Series” was presented by Paula Abdul and Frankie Grande while The Shaytards introduced the nominees.

Pauley Perrette from NCIS and Harley Mortenstein of Epic Meal Time gave away the award for “Prank Series” with Action Movie Kid presenting the nominees.

iJustine and James Van Der Beek, with help from the amazingly talented Kandee Johnson presented the award for “First Person Series”, while Kat Graham and Philip DeFranco gave away the award for “Viner of the Year” with the help of Kid President.

“Kids and Family” was introduced by Jillian Rose Reed, Miss America 2015, and Chester See, while Shay Mitchell, Lindsey Stirling, and The Most Popular Girls presented the award for “Lifestyle Series”

Only two awards left in the night and NeNe Leakes presented the first one for “Show of the Year”, with Mel B. and Sean Kingston presenting the award for “Entertainer of the Year”.
