MONDAY MOTIVATION – The GOLDEN GLOBE CLASS OF 2019
January 7, 20190
It is now news that the Golden Globes and many other film and Tv awards are in season!
The 2019 Golden Globes were handed out on Sunday night. The cordial mingling between television stars and movie stars, Amy Adams overachieving and being nominated in both the film and television categories, jokes about alcohol being served, and witty banter between co-hosts Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh — it was all part of the evening.
The Golden Globes kick off the pocket of time known as awards season, in which Hollywood tastemakers honor the best performances in the film for the previous year. Adam McKay’s Dick Cheney biopic Vice led the comedy or musical film categories with six nominations, followed by The Favourite and Green Book, both of which received five and though Christian Bale did win for portraying Cheney in Vice, the big film winner of the evening was Green Book, which took home Best Screenplay, Best Supporting Actor (Mahershala Ali), and Best Picture — Comedy or Musical.
Mahershala Ali, who bagged a Golden Globe Sunday night for his portrayal of Dr. Don Shirley in Green Book, has shared more of his thoughts on the controversy surrounding the late jazz musician’s depiction in the film. Backstage at the Globes Sunday night, the star of the upcoming third batch of True Detective again expressed respect for the family. “I will say this, my job is always the same: I have to look at what I am doing and be responsible for it,” he said, according to Deadline. Ali added that he doesn’t want to “throw away” the work done by himself and others on the production. “I respect the family…and Don Shirley,”
Last month, Don Shirley’s nephew Edwin Shirley III revealed that Ali had given the family a personal phone call during which he “profusely” apologized for any anguish the film may have put them through.
