The Golden Globes: The Good, the Bad & the La La



I enjoyed last night's 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards. Jimmy Fallon was a good host - especially in his delightful opening number, which brilliantly spoofed a few musical numbers from La La Land. Now here are the winners (my 10 correct predictions are in pink) as well as some of my own personal awards:



Hottest Hunks: Ryan Reynolds, Aaron Taylor-Johnson (who won Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture for Nocturnal Animals) and Matt Bomer



Most Unexpected Winners: There were many, but I was most surprised by Billy Bob Thornton's win for Best Actor in a Drama Series for Amazon's Goliath and Isabelle Huppert's first Golden Globe win for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama for Elle.

Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical Series: Diana Ross's daughter Tracee Ellis Ross won her first Golden Globe for Black-ish.

Best Comedy or Musical Series: FX's Atlanta

Best Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television: Sarah Paulson won her first Golden Globe for FX's The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.



Best Limited Series Or Motion Picture Made for Television: The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story

Best Guest DJ: Julia Louis-Dreyfus

Best Speech Runner-Up: Hugh Laurie provided some laughs when he won Best Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Miniseries or Television Film for The Night Manager.



Best Original Score: Justin Hurwitz for La La Land

Best Original Song: "City of Stars" from La La Land

Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture: Viola Davis won her first Golden Globe for Fences.



Best Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television: Olivia Colman for The Night Manager

Best Presenters: Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig were laugh-out-loud hilarious as they presented the Best Animated Feature Film to Zootopia.



Best Presenters Runners-Up: Goldie Hawn and Amy Schumer were funny together.

Best Actor in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical: Ryan Gosling won his first Golden Globe for La La Land.

Best Kiss: Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool) shared a kiss with Andrew Garfield when he lost to Ryan Gosling (look for them in the audience as Gosling takes the stage).



Best Director and Best Screenplay: Damien Chazelle for La La Land

Best Actor in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television: Tom Hiddleston for The Night Manager

Most Poignant Moment (and my only criticism): The brief tribute to Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds was nice, but the Globes opened themselves up to a lot of criticism online for not featuring other celebrities who left us in 2016. Either do a full "In Memoriam" segment during the telecast or don't do anything at all - just my opinion.



Best Foreign Language Film: Elle from France

Best Actress in a Drama Series: Claire Foy for Netflix's The Crown (I was rooting for Winona Ryder).

Best Drama Series: The Crown

Best Actress in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical: Emma Stone won her first Golden Globe for La La Land.



Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama: Casey Affleck won his first Golden Globe for Manchester by the Sea.

Best Speech: Meryl Streep, who received the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award (and later some crybaby Tweets).



Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical Series: Donald Glover for Atlanta

Best Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical: La La Land

Best Reunion: Sylvester Stallone and Carl Weathers, who starred together in four Rocky films.

Best Motion Picture - Drama: Moonlight

And that, folks, is my review of the Golden Globes. Now on to the Oscars on February 26!
