Golden Globe 2017 Highlights

Greetings, fellow readers!  Hope everyone had a good weekend (also hope that my New England region readers were keeping warm!).  Was going to post some good content, but I caught a random stomach bug that eradicated most of my motivation over the past few days.  Feeling MUCH better now and ready to kick off the week with a bang!

The Patriots weren’t playing on Sunday (it was their bye week), but the next best thing aired that night: The Golden Globe Awards.  Today is all about discussing the highlights from the Golden Globes.  From the glitz/glamour of the Red Carpet to celebrities cracking the best political jokes, it was quite an eventful night at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.  Here were some memorable moments from this year’s Golden Globes:

Red Carpet

It was a beautiful sunny day in Beverly Hills as the celebrities exited their limos and out onto the Red Carpet.  All the hottest actors/actresses arrived looking absolutely stunning.

Sylvester Stallone, one of the presenters of the show, arrived with his family.  40 years after the release of Rocky and Stallone looks just as badass as ever.  What was even more impressive was his wife and daughters all dressed in black.  If there’s any squad to join, it HAS to be with the Stallones.  Can we get a ‘Stallone Squad’ shoutout right here?   #StalloneSquad.

Besides Stallone’s badass squad, Vince Vaughn rolled in looking dapper as well.  The funny comedian got serious about Mel Gibson’s nominated film Hacksaw Ridge where Vaughn plays Sergeant Howell.  Hacksaw Ridge was released on November 4th, 2016 and raked in $137,300,000 in the box office so far.

Casey Affleck dropped by the Red Carpet to discuss his newest film Manchester by the Sea.  What was more interesting than his movie was the beard/manbun combo he was sporting.  I hope that he sports that look during his new film!

Steve Carrell & Kristin Wiig Animated Film Gag

Kristin Wiig & Steve Carrell presented the award for Best Animated Feature in the most humorous way possible: creating a dark story from animated films.  Carrell told the story of how his parents got divorced when he was six years old on “Fantasia” day.  Wiig got even more depressing with her experience of putting her 3 dogs down the same day she saw Bambi in theatres.  Note that none of these were true stories, but they made for a hysterical presentation.  Kudos to Steve and Kristin for presenting the category through black humor!

Andrew Garfield & Ryan Reynolds = Randyan ❤

Ok…I don’t know HOW I missed this, but there was some pure GOLD that happened on the Golden Globes.  So here’s what happened: Ryan Gosling won for Best Performance by Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical, or Comedy for his lead role in La La Land.  Gosling was shocked as he accepted his award, but what was happening in the background was even MORE shocking.  While Ryan was heading up to the stage, Ryan Reynolds and Andrew Garfield were seen in the background…making out.  SERIOUSLY…Ryan Reynolds and Andrew Garfield making out during the Golden Globe Awards.  YOU GUYS…I CAN’T!

I’ve heard that California was the land of fruits & nuts…but DAMN!  We have a new couple to watch for and it’s Randyan!


La La Land was a common film within the show that won all 7 awards that they were nominated for.  Moonlight grabbed 1 Globe, but it was a major win for the motion picture.  Ryan Murphy’s The People V. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story swept through the TV categories by taking home 5 awards.  American Horror Story: Roanoke didn’t receive any nominations, but Murphy’s other series certainly took over the TV categories.

Cecil b. Demille Award – Meryl Streep

Meryl Streep won the Cecil b. Demille Award for this year’s Golden Globe.  She accepted the award in her black dress with sparkly, colorful flowers hanging around her neck (she looked ABSOLUTELY stunning!).  After accepting her award, she used her speech to take a few jabs over the presidential election that happened in November 2016.  You better watch out, folks!  Streep isn’t messing around these days, even after receiving her Cecil B. Demille Award!

“My First Job”

This was an interesting segment where some celebrities discussed their very first job.  Some of them seemed common while others were just flat-out strange.  American Horror Story alumni Sarah Paulson mentioned that her first job before acting was a waitress for a restaurant.  You see folks?  Celebrities were JUST like us before they got famous!  They’ve struggled through terrible jobs before landing their big role in Hollywood.

So another Golden Globe Awards has come and gone.  There was glitz, there was glamour, there was even some celebs making out in some shots.  All in all, it was another crazy award show in Hollywood.  Now’s the time to start heading to the theaters to check out these films.
