70th Annual Golden Globes Re-cap

The 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards was held in Hollywood at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday evening. The red carpet event was hosted by the dynamic duo Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. The two kept the audience laughing throughout the show.

In one of their opening lines Tina said, “Tonight we honor the television shows that have entertained us all year, as well as the films that have only been in theaters for two days.” Poehler replied with, “That’s what makes tonight so special. Only at the Golden Globes do the beautiful people of film rub shoulders with the rat-face people of television.”

Both of these hilarious women were nominated for the same award, Best Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy. Fey was nominated for “30 Rock,” while Poehler was nominated for “Parks and Recreation.” However, Lena Dunham with her performance in “Girls” took the Golden Globe.

Dunham took home another Golden Globe with her “Girls” crew for the Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy. They beat out, “Big Bang Theory,” “Episodes,” “Modern Family,” and “Smash.”

It was great year for other women in television and film as well. Jessica Chastain took home Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama for her daring and heart-felt performance in “Zero Dark Thirty.” 

Jodi Foster was another woman honored for her outstanding career. Robert Downey Jr. presented her with the Cecil B. DeMille Award recipient for her 47 years of filmmaking. Foster said she felt like the prom queen of the night.  

Jennifer Lawrence was in attendance for “Silver Linings Playbook” with co-star nominee Bradley Cooper. Lawrence received the award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. She blew up the Twitter feed with her controversial dress, as well as a comment about Meryl Streep during her acceptance speech. She joked, “I beat Meryl.” Meryl was not in attendance because she had the flu.

Julianne Moore was awarded Best Actress in a Mini-Series for her performance as Sarah Palin in “Game Change.” Fey joked with her, saying that she used to win awards for her Sarah Palin impersonation from “SNL.” This mini-series also took home Best Actor (Ed Harris).

It was not only actresses that were recognized. Taylor Swift and Adele were among these Hollywood stars. They were both nominated for Best Original Song. Adele took home her first Golden Globe for her song, “Skyfall,” which can be heard in the most recent James Bond film. 

The crowning movie of the night was “Les Miserables.” Their triumphs were evident through three awards. The film took home statues for: Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, for actor (Hugh Jackman), and supporting actress (Anne Hathaway). Hathaway gracefully accepted the award, as she beat out her competition, including: Amy Adams, “The Master;” Sally Field, “Lincoln;” Helen Hunt, “The Sessions;” and Nicole Kidman, “The Paperboy.”
