The Golden Globes last night with their name where created: rewards that are equally frenzied were the dresses on the stage. So was the big winner of the evening, a film worldwide by critics, was put to the sword, but was flooded by love, by the eccentric club of less than 88 foreign film critics that are part of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
The big winner of the evening was, after all, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, in this newspaper is described as a ‘Bohemian crapsody’. The biopic of Queen singer Freddy Mercury won the award for best film (drama), while the leading actor Rami Malek with the statuette for best actor went home. This was award-winning films as ” A star is born’, ‘If Beale Street could talk’ and ‘Black panther’ in the cold left.
There was also no mention of Bryan Singer, the director, who midway through the recording of ‘Bohemian rhapsody’ all of a sudden no more opdaagde on the set. Allegedly were Malek and the rest of the crew, the behavior of the Singer tired. Also played something else: in the aftermath of the Weinstein-revelations, there was a complaint filed against Singer for rape of a then 17-year-old actor. With two more weeks of filming to go was Singer replaced by Dexter Fletcher, who later this year is yet to come with a biopic on Elton John, ” Rocketman’. The whole controversy remained unaddressed in dankwoorden.
Known as gaga, not Gaga
It was an evening of surprises: not so much in the speeches as well as in the choices. In a remarkable twist, lost to Lady Gaga with her remarkable rendition in ‘A star is born’ by Glenn Close (‘The wife’) for the Golden Globe award for best actress (drama). Who then gambled had may rich delusions. There was not a single interpretation that, as in the sky was praised this year as Gaga.
Another noteworthy winner is the ‘Green book’, the Golden Globe award for best film (musical or comedy) won. This movie about a white driver for a black jazz musician is certainly not a musical and so apparently a comedy. That the family of jazz musician Don Shirley himself was against the portrayal was apparently no object found. The interpreter of Shirley, Mahershala Ali, received the Globe for best supporting actor. “I respect the family and Don Shirley, saw Ali after the end of the show. The producer of the film, had to search for words to ask about it to dodge. The film was also awarded for its screenplay, while the Globe for best director went to Alfonso Cuarón.
His ‘Roma’ won as expected in the category ‘Best foreign film’. Also, without the fuss in the US about ‘Girl’ made the film by Lukas Dhont never really have a chance to pick it up this sublime black-and-white drama about a maid in Mexico City. ‘Roma’ wins will also be the Oscar for best foreign film, that much is certain. ‘Film can, in the best case, to build bridges to another culture, ” said the Mexican director on the stage in a country where the government stay quiet because the president was a wall between Mexico and the U.S. wants to build. “When we build bridges, we begin to realize that the others might be odd, but not entirely unknown. We begin to understand how much we have in common.’
‘Roma’ was not the only victory for Netflix last night. At the Globes for tv series won Michael Douglas the best actor in The Kominsky method, that also received the Award for best tv series (musical or comedy).
Even more bad news
Not only ‘Girl’ fell by the way next to the prices. Was there last night too, no Golden Globe for Timothée Chalamet. He was nominated for Best Male supporting actor, for his performance in “Beautiful Boy”, the Hollywood debut of director Felix van Groeningen.
That Globe went to Mahershala Ali in the film ‘Green Book’, the film also received the prize as best comedy.
Also Jakob Verbruggen grip in addition to a price. His tv-series ‘The Alienist’ was nominated in the category Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television. ‘The Alienist’ is a tv series about the New York of the late 19th century, made for Netflix.
Many speeches were impassioned about diversity. But there was not the rebellious fire of last year, when the show was dominated by #MeToo few months after the case of Harvey Weinstein began. When challenged stars on the red carpet in the black and they took civil rights activists on the stage. This year continued that everything is limited, what bracelets of #TimesUp after. Also criticism on president Donald Trump was noticeably absent from the Hollywood celebrities.
After the Oscars, the Globes, the most notable film awards of the year. But the question remains, how serious is the eccentric choices of 88 film critics in LA live in front of the more than 8,000 film professionals from the Academy that the Oscars awards.
