Last night’s Golden Globe Award show was maybe the most upbeat it has been in a while. Brad Pitt graced the stage, amid his messy and very public divorce. Milestones were broken amongst minority actors/actresses. Jimmy Fallon took a jab at Mariah Carey, and Meryl Streep gave an extremely moving speech while shining light on president elect Donald Trump’s distasteful antics.
My heart skipped a beat. My eyes watered. What a speech. What a woman. The lack of empathy, disrespect and micro aggression that permeates the country and social media these days of heart breaking. Each of us has a platform within which we can push the world forward and leave it at least a slightly better place then we found it. This requires love, understanding and accountability. I humbly hope to one day be to another as impactful and she was to me this evening. Thank you #merylstreep ❤. . . . #goldenglobes
In an interview Donald Trump had with the New York Times, he said he was “not surprised” by the comments of a “Hillary lover” or that he had come under attack by “liberal movie people.”
Another big moment of the night was when Tracee Ellis Ross won the award for Best Actress in a Comedy Series for the show “Blackish.” She is the 1st African American woman to win that category since Debbie Allen in 1983.
The winning continued with Viola Davis winning the category of best actress in a supporting role for “Fences.”
……and the musical movie “La La Land” broke records for the most Golden Globes won with a total of 7 prizes.
