Golden Globes Wrap
HOLLYWOOD — When it comes to Hollywood award nights, the Oscars may be the biggest deal, but the golden globes are the biggest party!
Despite a few cringe-worthy moments, the show seemed to go well. Hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler got a few good laughs, like when they poked fun at George Clooney and his very accomplished wife, Amal Alamuddin: “She’s a human rights lawyer who worked on the Enron case, an adviser to Kofi Annan on Syria and was appointed to a three-person commission investigating rules of war violations in the Gaza strip… so tonight her husband is getting a lifetime achievement award.”
Not long after, Clooney accepted that award, and gave his new bride a shout-out.
“Amal whatever alchemy brought us together, I couldn’t be more proud to be your husband,” he said.
But it wasn’t all romance and glitter. Real world events also took center stage.
“Together we will stand united against anyone who will repress free speech everywhere, from North Korea to Paris,” said Theo Kingma, President of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
As for the big winners, Boyhood nabbed three globes: best director, best supporting actress and best drama. In the comedy/musical category, “The Grand Budapest Hotel” won Best Picture, and the transgender-themed “Transparent” took Best TV Series and Best Actor.
