The interesting thing about the Golden Globe’s nominees and winner, it often times sets the tone for how the Oscars will pan out. Although there have been many surprises over the years, with the shift from the winners at the Golden Globe and the surprise winners at the Oscars. But this year’s winner did not surprise me as I am one who appreciates a stand out performance from all the normal or expected contenders. The flip side to this concept, is that each actor nominated or not, I believe does make a conscious effort to give their best to portray the characters they have agreed to take on. So, with these awards choosing the best of the best is difficult in the world of the arts. It may work in sports, but I feel the arts should not be compared or measured against the past.
But what do I know.
So here are the highlights for me:
And the list of winners –
Best Motion Picture – Drama – Bohemian Rhapsody – not a surprise
Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy – Green Book story is outstanding and an understandable winner for this category. But I was secretly hoping for Mary Poppins.
Best performance by an Actor in a TV Series – Drama Richard Madden (“Bodyguard”) *WINNER – an interesting surprise. I assumed Jason Bateman would take this one
Best Performance by an Actress in a TV series – Musical or Comedy Rachel Brosnahan (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”)*WINNER – naturally
Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television Darren Criss (“The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story”) *WINNER – if you haven’t seen the series, by all means, check out Darren’s performance
What is your take on the Golden Globe, winners, best dressed and all that is celebrity
