A Night to Celebrate at the Golden Globe Awards

At tonight’s 74th annual Golden Globe Awards, Hollywood’s finest have gathered to toast the best in TV and film. Hosted by The Tonight Show’s Jimmy Fallon at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, the night proved to be full of surprises.

Sweeping the movie awards was the critically-acclaimed musical La La Land, which broke the record for most wins by any one film. It won all seven of the categories it was nominated in, including a Best Actor statuette for Ryan Gosling, Best Actress for Emma Stone and Best Director for its auteur Damian Chazelle.

“There was something about these characters and what they’re going through that feels very human and natural even in their fantastic circumstances,” said Stone backstage, speaking of the Lionsgate movie-musical. “Struggling and falling in love is something I think everybody can relate to in some way.”

The coming-of-age story Moonlight took home Best Picture, one of its six categories, while the August Wilson play adaptation Fences earned a nod for its female lead. “It’s not everyday Hollywood thinks of translating a play to screen,” said Best Supporting Actress winner Viola Davis of the movie, which grossed $40.7 million at the box office. “It doesn’t scream moneymaker, but it does scream art.”

On the TV side,The People v. O.J. Simpson, and Atlanta, each took home two apiece.

Donald Glover’s FX series “Atlanta” won the Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy. The show will return for a second season. During his acceptance speech, Glover said, “I’d like to thank the Migos—not for being on the show, but for making ‘Bad and Boujee.’ Like, that’s the best song… ever.” He also thanked the city of Atlanta; watch his acceptance speech below.

 

After an evening of “La La Land” domination at the Golden Globes, the packed ballroom inside the Beverly Hilton leaped to its feet when Barry Jenkins’ lyrical “Moonlight” won for drama.

 

 

The fifth time was the charm for Viola Davis at the Golden Globes. The Emmy and SAG award winner finally scored her first Globe victory for her supporting turn in the feature film “Fences.”

Nominated twice before for her film performances in “The Help” and “Doubt” and twice for her TV star turn on ABC’s “How to Get Away with Murder,” Davis had previously lost out to Meryl Streep, Kate Winslet, Ruth Wilson, and Taraji P. Henson.

 

 

 

Tracee Ellis Ross won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Comedy for her scene-stealing performance on ABC’s Black-ish as efficient goofball Rainbow Johnson.

The category was stacked, and in winning it, Ross bested fellow nominees that included Jane the Virgin’s Gina Rodriguez and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s Rachel Bloom. She also became the first black woman to win Best Actress in a Comedy since Debbie Allen won for Fame in 1983.

So it’s fitting that Ellis Ross gave a beautiful acceptance speech that explicitly recognized women of color:
