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?

2015 Primetime Emmys

Emmys

The Emmys happened! Yes, they aired tonight and this year the host was Andy Samburg. I never used to be a fan of awards shows. They’re long, the speeches are sometimes annoying and cringeworthy, and the host (and their jokes) are usually lame and not funny.

However, lately they’ve really kind of been growing on me and I find myself becoming one of those people who really, really likes awards shows. And you know what? I’m okay with that. And I’ll continue being okay with that if more of them are like this.

The opening number was great! I saw mixed reviews on the Internet just after it happened, but personally I really enjoyed it. I laughed a lot and just thought overall it was really fun.

Andy Samburg is actually funny. I always love when hosts of awards shows take serious situations that have been happening and use satire and sarcasm in their speeches and that’s exactly what Andy Samburg did. From Bill Cosby to Donald Trump, he had a lot of material to use.

There were many presenters this year from Lena Headey to Taraji P. Henson to James Corden.

Many of the winners this year brought attention to serious issues in their speeches. Jill Soloway and Jeffrey Tambor both won Emmys for their work on Transparent and during their speeches brought attention to the Trans* rights movement.

Viola Davis won for her role on How to Get Away With Murder and made a moving speech about opportunities in the acting business for women of colour. It was truly emotional and spectacular and if you can find it online I highly recommend watching/listening to it.

Amy Schumer made a fantastically hilarious speech (of course) and I loved Peter Dinklage’s speech after he won for best supporting actor in Game of Thrones.

Azo Aduba’s speech was wonderful. She was so emotional and it just made me really happy to know she was really happy. It also made me really happy when Jon Hamm won for his role in Mad Men. I never saw the show (it’s on my list of things to watch), but I think everyone knows how huge it was and with it ending this year I don’t think it was a surprise to anyone that he won.

The memorial video was incredibly sad. Seeing all the men and women who have passed away this past year is actually so surprising. You hear about the death when it happens and you’re shocked, but to see all these faces, one name after the other, all in one go, it’s even more surprising.

There were many awards presented tonight and you can find the full list of winners/nominees as well as who presented each award below!
