2017 golden globe nominations
The red carpet at the 75th Golden Globes could have been a fashionable relative to 2017’s Women’s March. The path was overrun by women’s rights advocates and film and TV actresses, all wearing monochrome black Sunday night at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles. As celebrities strode past interviewers on the red carpet, there were fewer questions than usual about dress designers and more comments about gender equality and racial justice. The nearly uniform palette was a symbolic statement organized to support Time’s Up, a campaign to diversify the executive ranks of entertainment and other industries. As Globes nominee Claire Foy (“The Crown”) put it, “It’s not a fashion statement. It’s a solidarity statement.” That was a strategy followed by black-clad emcee Seth Meyers. Taking aim at male misbehavior in Hollywood, the talk-show host greeted the audience with “Good evening ladies and remaining gentlemen. “For the … [Read more...] about ‘Their time is up’ is Oprah’s rallying cry at Golden Globes
The Hollywood Foreign Press exists to honor the next big thing and the highest tier of A-list actor. But, between the incredible first-year showing of Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale and HBO's starry Big Little Lies, the 2017 Emmys beat Sunday's Golden Globes to the punch in nearly all TV categories. Both projects emerged as the biggest small-screen winners during the 2018 ceremony, a coronation of sorts for Big Little Lies (outstanding limited series) and The Handmaid's Tale (outstanding drama) and much of their casts: Handmaid's Tale star Elisabeth Moss (lead actress in a drama) and Big Little Lies' Nicole Kidman (lead actress in a limited), Alexander Skarsgard (supporting actor) and Laura Dern (supporting actress) among them. Not be be left out, Emmy drama actor winner and This Is Us star Sterling K. Brown also repeated his victory from the fall with one lonely win for broadcast TV — a nice distinction for Globes broadcaster and This Is Us home NBC. That meant comedy was … [Read more...] about Golden Globes’ TV Picks Mirror Emmys, With Obligatory Caveats
7:35 p.m. The driveway leading up the iconic property is packed with people, and the party has just started. A woman with a glittery gold jacket does her best to stop each and every wannabe reveler, asking them where they are headed. One suit-clad gentleman says in a very ungentlemanly way, "I'm going to Stefano and Lynn's party." Not everyone needs the complete party title apparently, but this annual bash celebrates W's "Best Performances" package featuring awards-season standouts. More on that here. 7:36 p.m. Julie Delpy arrives and walks across the street to a crush of waiting photographers. (More on Miss Delpy later and how she feels about people asking her to pose, pose, pose for them.) 7:41 p.m. Following a few check-in points, it's party time. The penthouse has been reimagined for the W party, and the long entry way (that leads to the living room and ever-crowded outdoor penthouse) is covered with mirrors on both sides, giving a minimalist, almost club-like feel. … [Read more...] about Golden Globes Party Diary 2017: Inside the A-List Events
