Golden Globe Awards 2017

It was a delight to see one of my childhood fantasies Noah, delivering a poignant speech for his lady. He paid an emotional tribute to his wife and dedicated his golden globe award to Eva Mendes.

"While I was singing and dancing and playing piano and having one of the best experiences I've ever had on a film, my lady was raising our daughter, pregnant with our second and trying to help her brother fight his battle with cancer," said Ryan Gosling, referring to brother-in-law Juan Carlos Mendes.

In the 74th Golden Globe Awards ceremony yesterday, huge surprises happened. If this is a sign then 2017 would be so amazing for entertainment. La La Land was the big winner at the boozy event for the 74th annual Golden Globe awards, claiming seven credits and breaking the record for most wins for a single film at the event. La La Land took home the most awards, steamrolled all seven categories it was nominated in and set a record for the most wins by a movie ever at the award ceremony. They were already leading with most nominations by a film.

Damien Chazelle's Los Angeles musical La La Land conquered with seven awards, together with the best motion picture, comedy or musical, the night's closing award went to Barry Jenkins' tender coming of age production Moonlight. It's one and an only award was for best motion picture, drama.

Damien Chazelle won both best director and best screenplay. Ryan Gosling won the best actor in a comedy or musical, as did Emma Stone for best actress. It also took best score (Justin Hurwitz) and best song for "City of Stars."

Best performance by an actor in a motion picture won by Casey Affleck – Manchester by the Sea while for the actress, Isabelle Huppert – Elle succeeded. Aaron Taylor-Johnson - Nocturnal Animals won the best actor for supporting role and Viola Davis – Fences won the best actress for supporting role. The best-animated feature film award went under the banner of Zootopia.

Golden Globe Awards changed a little this year. There was the briefest film-clip honor to the late Carrie Fisher and her late mother, Debbie Reynolds. From nowhere, host Jimmy Fallon replaced professional bad boy Ricky Gervais as host.  The evening started with a star-studded filmed creation number that took off on “La La Land” and concluded with Fallon and BFF Justin Timberlake excitingly waltzing into the stars; it was put up to the host’s vigor — singing, dancing and kindergarten enthusiasm.
