The Golden Globes’ Biggest Snubs and Surprises

Published

on

In the just concluded 74th Golden Globes ceremony on Sunday, the popsicle-colored, jazz-infused ‘La La Land’ took a front lead in almost every category under which it was nominated. What’s more, it received a promotional boost in the form of an unexpected lavish tribute just before the kickoff of the ceremony that saw the film collect an impressive record of 7 prizes – two of which were slated under best musical and comedy shows.

This, of course, is considered a very big deal taking into account that no individual film has won more than 4 Golden Globes for almost four decades. Prior to ‘La La Land’, the crime drama ‘Midnight Express’ bagged six awards thereby setting the 38-year record that was shattered by Ryan Gosling and co.

The stunning performance of the film at the Golden Globes seems to have taken most of the cast and the directing staff by surprise. Damien Chazelle, writer and director of ‘La La Land’, for example, confessed that he was ‘dazed’ by how things unfolded at the award ceremony. At the same time, the film’s leading actress, Emma Stone, who also received a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical described the motion picture as one that inspires hope, creativity, and ingenuity. That being said, ‘La La Land’ also scooped an award for Best Leading Actor, Song, and Screenplay.

On the other hand, as those involved in ‘La La Land’ were celebrating, the disappointment of the crew behind ‘Moonlight’ was almost palpable. And this is notwithstanding that ‘Moonlight’ was Sunday’s second-most nominated motion picture. In fact, the movie, which depicts the inspiring story of a black teenager growing up in Miami, could only manage a single Golden Globe. However, it might have been one trophy, but it was a vital one nonetheless – Best Drama.

Wrapping it up, there were several more surprises in the glitz-drenched award ceremony. For starters, Isabelle Huppert took home the Best Actress title for her role in a French Film by the name ‘Elle’. This came as a shocker for many who were expecting Natalie Portman to bag the trophy for her work in ‘Jackie’.

Secondly, HBO – despite being nominating 14 times – went home empty-handed. Thirdly, Aaron-Taylor Johnson won the opening Globe for the ceremony for his outstanding performance in Tom Ford’s ‘Nocturnal Animals’ beating the favorite Mahershala Ali from ‘Moonlight’. Donald Glover, on the side of the spectrum, made away with the highly contested Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Television Series Musical or Comedy.
