Golden Globes Celebrate #MeToo Movement and 2017’s Achievements in Film

golden globes 2018

The 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards didn’t see any misread Best Picture announcements. Instead, host Seth Meyers was booed for his Harvey Weinstein jokes and Oprah Winfrey gave a stirring speech while wearing black in order to support the #MeToo Movement that has shaken Hollywood, hopefully for the better. Celebrities male and female alike took to the red carpet in (mostly) all black attire to show support and solidarity in the cleansing of the industry after moguls like Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, and Jeffrey Tambor were accused of sexual misconduct by a multitude of women. The purging of Hollywood, however, did not take the spotlight away from the achievements we saw in film in 2017.

Gary Oldman took home the Best Actor globe for his portrayal of Prime Minister Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour, while James Franco took the Best Actor globe for The Disaster Artist in the musical/comedy category. Guillermo del Toro took home the Best Director globe for The Shape of Water, while Saoirse Ronan won the globe for Best Actress (musical/comedy) for Lady Bird. The real winner of the evening, however, was writer/director Martin McDonagh’s Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. The film took home the globe for Best Picture (drama), as well as Best Actress for Frances McDormand (drama), Best Supporting Actor for Sam Rockwell (any category), and Best Original Screenplay for director McDonagh.
