Viola Davis wins a Golden Globe

08:43  The La La Land leading man dedicates his win to bro-in-law:  

Hilarious duo Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn take their sweet time to announce Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy but when the name is Ryan Gosling, its totally worth it.

In a rather touching speech, Gosling dedicated his win to the memory of his brother-in-law Carlos 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 (wife Eva Mendes) was raising our daughter, pregnant with our second and trying to help her brother fight his battle with cancer. If she hadn’t taken all that on so I could have this experience, it would surely be someone else up here other than me. So sweetheart, thank you.

08:32   Best Supporting Actress honour for the powerhouse:  

Michael Keaton hands the Best Supporting Actress trophy to Viola Davis for her hard-hitting histrionics in Fences. A visibly emotional Davis says,  It (Fences) doesnt scream money maker. But it does scream art. It does scream heart.

08:23  Most predictable AND deserving wins of the night:  

And the Golden Globe for Best Original Score goes to, no brainer, Justin Hurwitz for La La Land. 

The soundtrack’s most romantic offering, City of Stars is announced Best Original Song.

Most predictable AND deserving wins of the night. 

08:17  Laurie at his humorous best!:  Bravo Bertie! Hugh Laurie ousts tough competition to walk away with the Best Supporting Actor in a Limited Television Series for his knockout performance in The Night Manager. Here’s what he has to say:

“I suppose this is made more amazing by the fact that Ill be able to say I won this at the last ever Golden Globes. I dont mean to be gloomy. Its just that it has the words Hollywood press in the title. I suppose to some republicans even the word association is a bit sketchy.”  Haha. 

08:10  Back to back wins for the FX drama:  

Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon pair up to present the Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television. Sarah Paulson, who recently won an Emmy for  The People v. O.J. Simpson, doesn’t seem too surprised either.

The People v. O.J. Simpson’s winning streak continues. It is also Best Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television. Good stuff.

08:00  Golden Globes for Atlanta, Black-ish:  Tracee Ellis Ross is ecstatic over her Best Actress win for Black-ish. Danny Glover feels ditto about Atlanta being announced Best TV series by Golden Globes.  
07:49  Priyanka Chopra wows, Billy Bob Thornton wins:  

Woo hoo, Priyanka Chopra is stunning in gold presenting Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Drama. And the Golden Globe goes to Billy Bob Thornton for Golaith. Well deserved. 

07:42  Aaron Taylor-Johnson wins Best Supporting Actor! :  

 Now thats a surprise, Aaron Taylor-Johnson beats top contenders Jeff Bridges and Mahershala Ali to nab the first Golden Globe of the night for his dark, disturbing portrayal in Tom Fords Nocturnal Animals in Best Supporting Actor category. 

07:39  Jimmy Fallon’s ready with his bag of Trump jokes:  

Jimmy Fallon is reliably droll and Donald Trump is at the receiving end of quite a few of his jokes: 

“This is the Golden Globes, one of the few places left where America still honours the popular vote.” 

“What if (Games of Thrones) King Joffrey had lived? Well in 12 days, we are gonna find out.” 

07:30  Star-studded Golden Globes kick off in style:  

Good morning, everyone! Its time for the 74th Golden Globe Awards where glitz and glamour combine to raise a toast and applaud the best in the world of film and television. 

Hosted by The Tonight Shows Jimmy Fallon, the ceremony he quips might just be the last party of 2017 before Donald Trump assumes his role as US President. 

This year, our very own Priyanka Chopra is presenting, Meryl Streep, nominated for the 30th time, goes home with a trophy come what may, namesakes and Canucks Ryan Gosling (La La Land) and Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool) fight for Best Actor in Comedy/Musical category even as fallen/forgotten icons Mel Gibson, Winona Ryder and John Travolta make a comeback of sorts. 

Will Netflix get any love for the fan favourite Stranger Things or ambitious biographical series, The Crown?
