Last night was The 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards, hosted by the fantastically funny Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. It was a great night of TV with some really nice acceptance speeches. I loved Anne Hathaway and Adele. As for TV winners, Damian Lewis was smoking hot as he accepted the award for Best Performance for an Actor in a TV Drama for his role on Homeland. Claire Danes won for her role on that same show, which also won Best TV Drama. Meanwhile, in the Best TV Series, Comedy, or Musical category, HBO’s Girls won the award for Best Show, with Lena Dunham and Don Cheadle winning Best Performance for an Actress & Actor for their roles in Girls & House of Lies. Out of all the great nominations, Game Change won for best TV Movie or Miniseries, with Kevin Costner and Julianne Moore winning Best Performance by an Actor & Actress for their roles on Hatfields & McCoys and Game Change respectively. Finally, for Best Supporting Actress/Actor in a Series, Miniseries or TV Movie, Maggie Smith won for Downton Abbey, while Ed Harris won for Game Change. It was a great night for cable shows!
Now that the Golden Globes are over, it’s time to start looking at the Oscars, which airs February 24th. I honestly have no idea who I would bet my money on in February. This awards show in particular usually has a ton of strong contenders, and this year is no different. The cinemetography from Life of Pi to the great story telling on some of the other films up for Best Motion Picture will make it a tough race.
Of course, then we have the Emmy Awards coming up with nominations in March, and that’s the one I’m most looking forward to. It is the season of awards shows, isn’t it? Were you happy with the results from Sunday? Who do you think should win in February? Let us know in the comments below! And check out Wikipedia to see the history of the Golden Globes!
