Last night was the 2017 Golden Globes and they were AMAZING!
One thing you might not know about me: I am a movies awards fanatic! My favorite is the Oscars (Academy Awards). I throw a party every year with trivia award, and ballot winners, and what not. Last year the theme was the Golden Age of Hollywood. This year I already have my idea and plan in the works 😉
The Golden Globes is my second favorite. And Last night was probably my MOST FAVORITE show opener EVER!
If you’ve seen La La Land, you’ll love the opening. If you haven’t, stop everything and go see it now!
Here are my 5 most favorite moments of the
2017 Golden Globes:
- The Opening Monologue. I love Jimmy Fallon already, and I think he did awesome. And that opener… (all the heart eyes)
- The Meryl Streep video Montage. Meryl Streep won the Cecile B. DeMille award last night for Lifetime Achievement. I haven’t even seen half of her movies but because I throw parties every year I know her name, I know her recent movies, I know her class, I know her. So watching her win, and accept the award made me tear up. She’s amazing. Definitely the most celebrated actress of our time. She’s still one behind Katharine Hepburn (another favorite of mine) in Oscar wins but definitely the most nominations.
- Ryan Goslings acceptance speech.
Yes, Ryan Gosling is perfect. He gets up there and very graciously thanks only his Lady. And dedicates his win to her brother. Yes, my heart melted.
- Brad Pitt!!!!! Brad Pitt!!!!!
Brad Pitt showed up to the surprise of everyone and he was definitely well received. Last year was rough for him (understatement) but if I had to pick, I’m all #teamBrad for sure! And he looked super good.
- La La Land wins it all!
Ok, movie review coming later because I’m still trying to decide how to word everything with out spoilers, but let’s just say that the HFPA loved La La Land and awarded them everything and I loved every time they took the stage. Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling are amazing together.
