2019 Golden Globes recap

By Brett Haynes 08/01/19

The 2019 Golden Globes were yesterday and wow…. I didn’t see that coming. There were a few predictabilities but there were also some curve balls, which has really divided Film Twitter. It might not be safe to go back on till after the Oscars.

Sarah Oh and Andy Samburg who both did a good job hosted the night. I felt Seth Myers did a better job last year but they were still entertaining. The big winner of the night was Bohemian Rhapsody, which surprisingly won best picture drama while Rami Malek (less surprisingly) won best actor in a drama. This created controversy online with the films director Bryan Singer (who was fired halfway through shooting) is accused of several counts of Paedophilia. Many people saw this as an insult to his accuses. Also Bohemian Rhapsody was easily the weakest of the five films nominated.

The Comedy side didn’t fare much better with Green Book winning Best Picture Comedy/Musical, which also beat out stronger contenders. Mahershala Ali won Best Supporting Actor also for Green Book. Glenn Close spoiled Lady Gaga night by claiming Best Actress Drama for her performance in The Wife while Olivia Coleman won Best Actress Comedy/Musical for her performance in The Favourite. Christian Bale had the best speech of the night where he thanked Satan during his acceptance speech for Best Actor Comedy/Musical for his role as Dick Cheney in Vice. Regina King won Best Supporting Actress for her role in If Beale Street could Talk.

Director and Best Foreign Language film both went to Roma. Lady Gaga night wasn’t a complete lost winning Best Original Song for Shallows from A Star is Born. It was a disappointing night for Disney who didn’t win an award, losing out to Spider-man: Into the Spider verse for Best Animated Feature.

Television was also praised on the night with The Americans winning Best Television Drama and The Kominsky Method Best Comedy/Musical.

Overall this years Golden Globes taught us nothing about what’s to come this award season. While I think Best Actor is really only between Christian Bale and Rami Malek, I seriously doubt that Bohemian Rhapsody will earn a Best Picture nomination at the Oscars.

Everything is still as fuzzy as it was going in.
