Golden Globes 2017 Recap


Golden Globes 2017 Recap

Did you watch the Golden Globes? The Golden Globe Awards are a precursor to the Oscars. Tonight's award show was watched by approximately 20 million people. Maybe, you saw the red carpet as well.

Jimmy Fallon made a grand entrance. But the night began with Aaron Taylor-Johnson winning Best Supporting Actor for Nocturnal Nights. Later, Billy Bob Thornton gave an emotional speech.

Then, Tracee Ellis Ross graced the stage winning for Blackish. Atlanta starring Donald Glover earned the award for Best TV series. And Hacksaw Ridge received top recognition. Additionally, Sarah Paulson earned her award for the People V. O.J. Simpson.

You couldn't have asked for better presenters than Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon. Gina Rodriguez represented for the Latina women. Do you watch Jane the Virgin? Viola Davis received hard earned credit for her performance in Fences.

How could you miss the amazingly stunning Sofia Vergara on stage in her see through dress? Give credit to Carrie Underwood and Sting too. Moreover, Ryan Gosling's and Emma Stone's La la Land was given major accolades. Did Ryan Gosling give a nice acceptance speech or what?

Goldie Hawn and Amy Schumer shared the stage but Hawn hogged the microphone. Tom Hiddleston scored big for the Night Manager. Claire Foy won on a large scale for the Crown. It was great seeing Casey Affleck win Best Actor for Manchester by the Sea.

Finally, Brad Pitt introduced Moonlight, which was nominated for 6 Golden Globes. Moonlight deservingly won for the best drama category. However, the spotlight shined brightest on Meryl Streep. It was definitely Meryl's moment.

Everybody did a fantastic job. It was a wonderful show. There was a ton of glitz and glamor beginning on the red carpet. They arrived in spectacular fashion inside stretch limousines. The biggest stars showed up, although everybody in showbiz and the entertainment world did not take home an award.

I think Jimmy Fallon was awesome. A lot of excitement filled the air. My main critique is where was the music? They could have used more of the music scores. What do you think? Who had the best smile? Who wore the best dress?
