For the 77th annual Golden Globes, some issues have stayed the identical (Ricky Gervais returned for his fifth stint as host) however others haven’t (the Globes menu is vegan now, due to the local weather disaster).
This 12 months, as soon as once more, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has been criticized for snubbing girls in a number of huge classes together with greatest director, greatest movement image and greatest screenplay. Historically, solely 5 girls have been nominated, ever, for greatest director at the present. Greta Gerwig, who was not nominated as a director for “Little Women,” confirmed up anyway. Here’s what else we noticed.
Here had been a few of our favourite appears to be like
Here’s some extra issues we seen:
Andrew Scott was nonetheless being referred to as the “priest” on the carpet and it’s getting bizarre
Ryan Seacrest stated on the crimson carpet he’s maybe the solely individual in the U.S. who hasn’t completed the second season of “Fleabag.” But he did yell, upon seeing certainly one of the present’s stars, Andrew Scott, on the red carpet: “The priest, the priest is here!” Mr. Scott said that he and creator-writer-star Phoebe Waller-Bridge plan to collaborate again. “We’re definitely going to do something.”
The youngest nominee this year was 12
Roman Griffin Davis, the 12-year-old star of “Jojo Rabbit,” said he was excited to be nominated alongside heavyweights like Leonardo DiCaprio and Daniel Craig. His favorite part of the movie, which is set in Germany during World War II, was “kicking Hitler in the balls,” he said.
Turns out J.Lo does all her own stunts
While filming “Hustlers,” she was insistent that the director Lorene Scafaria “get a close-up of my face,” she said, lest someone think a stunt double jumped in for that film’s remarkable pole dancing scene. Alex Rodriguez, who was with Ms. Lopez on the red carpet, chimed in to say that a fringe benefit of the project was “having a pole in our master bedroom for six months.”
Billy Porter, once again, dressed to win the red carpet
“This is not a sitting outfit. This is a standing outfit,” Mr. Porter said of his suit, designed by Alex Vinash. Mr. Porter, a living fashion icon, was nominated for best actor in a television series in the drama category for his role in “Pose.”
“It meant the world” to bring the Harriet Tubman movie to life, said Cynthia Erivo
“It meant the world to be able bring this story that hasn’t been seen on the big screen,” said Cynthia Erivo, who was nominated for best actress in a drama for “Harriet,” a biographical movie about Harriet Tubman. “It felt like a huge responsibility that I wanted to try to get right.” Ms. Erivo. She wore a custom Thom Browne dress, and also plugged her upcoming TV series “The Outsider,” which is based on the Stephen King novel.
The tale of Beanie Feldstein’s prom date
Beanie Feldstein was nominated for best actress in a motion picture, musical or comedy, for her role in “Booksmart.” Her longtime best friend Ben Platt was nominated for best actor, too — in a television series, comedy or musical for his role in the “The Politician.”
“We went to prom together,” Ms. Feldstein said on the red carpet, wearing a puffy headband and an Oscar de la Renta dress. “We literally went to prom together.”
Pastel dresses popped up throughout the night
Kirsten Dunst donned a pale pink embroidered Rodarte gown, Dakota Fanning wore a lilac princess-style dress with puff sleeves and Tiffany Haddish wore a slinky pink V-neck number.
Also — why was Ricky Gervais hosting again?
Even he said he doesn’t really know. “As I put down the phone,” he recalled on the red carpet tonight, “I said, ‘Why am I doing this again? That’s Christmas ruined.’” He was prepared to be critiqued for his jabs and said he planned to tell anyone who thinks he went too far: “Listen, they’re just jokes.”
