Quite unlike last year when the Golden Globes was dedicated to women who have been sexually harassed in the work place or generally being denied their rights due to their gender at the work place,with the ‘Time’s Up’ movement, this year’s Golden Globes awards had nothing to dedicate it to. It was also devoid of any political innuendos, puns or jokes, quite unlike a typical award ceremony. The 76th edition which held on Sunday January 6th and had as hosts, actors, Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg, had a few jaw dropping moments that is sure to keep viewers talking for a long time to come.
Here are a few of them
- Grey Anatomy star, Sandra Oh, who was also a co-host at the ceremony made history as the first woman of Asian descent to win the Best Actress in a Drama award at the ceremony for her role in ‘Killing Eve’. It was a first ince 1981, when Yoko Shimada won it for ‘Shogun’.
- Christian Bale rather than thank God for his win as the Best Lead Actor in a motion picture, comedy or musical, for his role in Vice, a portrayal of former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney, preferred to instead thank Satan. The Welsh actor heartily thanked Satan for the inspiration behind his performance as in ‘Vice’.
- Three time Emmy winner, Regina King, nabbed the award for the Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture for ‘If Beale Street Could Talk’. Regina in her acceptance speech vowed to use her platform to employ at least a 50-percent female staff on every project she produces for the next two years.
