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?
