Hollywood’s Award season has started! We can’t decide if we’re more excited about the stars or the fashion! Here are our favorite moments from Sunday’s show. What were your favorite parts?
Tina Fey & Amy Pohler’s opening speech
No jokes were off limits for this hilarious pair in their opening dialouge, annoucing the Golden Globes as the only award show where “the beautiful people of film rub shoulders with the rat-faced people of TV.” The jokes kept rolling when Tina Fey annouced,
“Anne Hathaway is here for her performance in ‘Les Misérables,” she said, adding that she “had not seen anyone as alone and abandoned since you were on stage with James Franco at the Oscars.” However, the best joke came later when Poehler referenced the controversy regarding the film, “Zero Dark Thirty” with, “I haven’t paid much attention, but when it comes to torture, I trust the lady who spent three years married to James Cameron,” which left the crowd gasping.
A Presidential Appearance
Souce: E! News
Bill Clinton introduced a clip of “Lincoln,” which was up for best drama, and brought everyone to their feet as he stated, “We’re all here tonight because he did it,” of Lincoln’s battle to end slavery.
Lena Dunham’s heartfelt acceptance speech
It’s no secret we love Lena and we love her show, GIRLS. But Sunday night’s acceptance speech for Best Actress in a TV Comedy (she also won Best TV Comedy for GIRLS) made us love her even more. “This award is for everyone who feels like there wasn’t a place for her,” she said. “This show made a space for me.”
Jessica Chastain wins Best Actress in Drama for Zero Dark Thirty
First, if you haven’t seen the movie yet, go see it now. You’ll be glad you did. Jessica Chastain played her role remarkably. When accepting her award last night she shined the spotlight on the director of Zero Dark Thirty, Kathryn Bigelow with the line, “I can’t help but compare my character of Maya to you. … When you make a film that allows your character to disobey the conventions of Hollywood, you’ve done more for women in cinema than you take credit for.”
Unforunately Bigelow is not a nominee for Best Director at this year’s Academy Awards, but won for the film, “Hurt Locker” at the 2010 Oscars and was the first women to be awarded Best Director by the Academy.
Bigelow, who won an Oscar for “The Hurt Locker,” was snubbed by this year’s Academy Awards for best director.
And of course, Argo
Argo, directed by and starring Ben Affleck, won Best Motion Picture for Drama. Affleck aslo won a Golden Globe for Best Director, although he was as a nominee for the same category at the Oscars.
