One of the most coveted awards from Hollywood, Golden Globes, was broadcasted yesterday and while it appeased some, the others just had to be happy with their nominations. There were real highbrow competitors on the nomination list but the best ones took it all. Even before the red carpet there was a lot of hullabaloo of the stars as they prepared themselves for the D-Day. Be it Jennifer Aniston, JLo, Reese Witherspoon, Heidi Klum all had their selfies and videos posted on their social network. The excitement was evident enough from these posts. Before we give a recap of the event, here are some posts from these celebrities that we liked.
Tagged as “The Most Beautiful Woman” by People, Lupita Nyong’o from 12 Years A Slave shared a DIY for the cosmetic lovers.
Tom Bachik the celebrity nail stylist clicked Heidi Klum during her last minute touchups.
Uzo Aduba from a popular television series Orange Is The New Black posted a video while in her car.
The excitement didn’t wear out that soon. But we think with the twitter hashtag #GoldenGlobes trending, the excitement won’t wear out any sooner now!
Jessica Chastain posted a pic of a dessert with which she started off her day.
And there was this awesome selfie of our very own Rachel Green aka Jennifer Aniston with legendary hairstylist Chris McMillan.
We loved these moments to the core, but we awaited the grandeur of the coveted Golden Globes trophy. We were left in a nail-biting situation as to who shall take away the dainty trophy. While Leviathan (Russia) won the Best Foreign Language Film, How To Train Your Dragon 2 won the Best Animated Feature Film. We were only sorry that Big Hero 6 didn’t walk away with the award yet How To Train Your Dragon 2 was an entertainer nonetheless.
Last year we have had ample of good Hollywood films gracing the screen. But it was Gone Girl that was much talked about in India. We definitely vouch for its direction, score, screenplay etc. but Boyhood was a focal point for the evening! It bagged three Golden Globes for its impeccable Direction, for being the Best Motion Picture-Drama, and for Best Supporting actress category for which the award went to Patricia Arquette.
Best screenplay while was taken away by Alejandro González Iñárritu, Nicolás Giacobone, Armando Bo and Alexander Dinelaris, Jr. for Birdman, Best Musical or Comedy award was bagged by The Grand Budapest Hotel. There were number of films last year which awed the audience including The Hundred-Foot Journey, however, it received only one nomination which was in the category for Best Actress. Helen Mirren would have been a critics’ choice back in India yet Amy Adams as Margaret Keane in Big Eyes was declared as the Best Actress for Musical or Comedy.
What we thought was turn around for the evening was Benedict Cumberbatch taking a backseat and Eddie Redmayne swopping the award for Best Actor-Drama category for The Theory of Everything. Despite having competent competitors in Best Actress-Drama category like Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Felicity Jones and Rosemund Pike, Julianne Moore took away the award for her stunning performance in Still Alice while Michael Keaton bagged the award for Best Actor- Musical or Comedy for Birdman.
Now that’s that about films! But series like The Affair, Transparent, House Of Cards, True Detective, Orange Is The New Black were the A-listers of the evening and we think they ought to be on our viewing lists as well!
This video gives a short and sweet highlight of the evening…
