We Are The Champions – Golden Globe Awards 2019

We Are The Champions – Golden Globe Awards 2019

Following the 76th Golden Globes in Los Angeles last night, awards season 2019 is well and truly underway, There were some (good) surprises and unexpected winners this evening and despite the internet already flooded with fierce opinion, whether or not the Golden Globes are a good indicator of Oscars success we will find out in just 7 weeks, on February 24th.

It was a big night for Fox at the Golden Globes – with major wins for the movie studio with the incredible Bohemian Rhapsody and its leading star Rami Malek, The Favourite’s favourite Olivia Colman and FX television shows The Americans and The Assassination of Gianni Versace (and leading man, Darren Criss).

Netflix won its first ever Golden Globe for a motion picture, with Roma taking Best Foreign Language Film and Best Director for Alfonso Cuarón. Personally, I was thrilled to see Sony’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse take the Globe for Best Animated Film. With a mind-blowing soundscape and some of the most impressive visual animation I have ever seen, this is a truly innovative a fresh addition to the Spider-Man cinematic universe. Good to see the high quality of BBC output shining through too, with awards tonight for Killing Eve and Bodyguard lead star, Richard Madden.

Finally, some of my favourite films and performances of the year were awarded tonight including Mahershala Ali for Green Book, Christian Bale for Vice and the outstanding Regina King for If Beale Street Could Talk. Only disappointing there could not have been two winners in this category as Amy Adam’s portrayal of Lynne Cheney in Vice is chilling, poised and equally deserving of the accolade. Still it’s just the beginning of awards season so there’s plenty more opportunity to come.
