La La Land becomes the most awarded film in Golden Globes history

The 74th Annual Golden Globes was held in Los Angeles today, with Jimmy Fallon hosting the awards for the first time. The event, which is voted on by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, has the unique distinction of celebrating both Film and Television, as well as breaking apart many nominees into “Drama” and “Musical/Comedy” categories.

Acclaimed Musical La La Land was the standout winner of the night, taking home all seven of the trophies it was nominated for, making it the most awarded film in Golden Globes history. Meanwhile, on the drama side of the coin, French film Elle won two trophies, including a surprise win for Best Actress Isabelle Huppert. Though it didn’t take home any other awards on the night (it was nominated for six), Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight was awarded Best Motion Picture (Drama). Zootopia took home Best Animated Feature.

In the Television Categories, no one show had true dominance – The Crown took home two (Best Drama and Best Actress), The Night Manager took home three, The People vs O.J. Simpson two (including Best Limited Series) and FX’s surprise hit Atlanta two (Best Comedy and Best Actor for Donald Glover). Billie Bob Thornton also snuck in a Best Actor win for the relatively unknown Amazon series Goliath.

Among the highlights of the night was what we believe was the the awards’ first ever pre-recorded comedic introduction (a la Academy Awards or the Emmys), with host Fallon paying homage to La La Land (and Barb from Stranger Things) in a massive number. Kristen Wiig and Steve Carell delivered a hilarious introduction to the Best Animated Feature category, in what may have been a pitch for the pair to host the event in 2018 (to this we say yes!). Questlove was on stage for the whole show as DJ – except for when Veep’s Julia Louis Dreyfus briefly took over the decks.

But it was Meryl Streep who stole the show, with an impassioned speech accepting the Cecil B. Demille Award that reflected on the “foreigners” in Hollywood, the rise of Trump (without ever mentioning his name), and ended with a quote from her friend, Princess Leia. The awards also paid a special tribute to Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher in a brief dedication segment; a first for the awards show, which traditionally does not do an In Memoriam segment. Many winners (as well as the host) also took their chance to swipe at the rise of Trump – though I don’t believe any uttered his name.
