    I just don’t get why they couldn’t let Chalamet have the Globe. Like give him one of the big awards at least. There is this bandwagon mentality when it comes to these awards and it’s unfortunate.

    That’s because Globes hated CMBYN. Even though I’m not a fan of the movie, I predicted that boy to win the Globe because of the fight Oldman vs HFPA. Finally, the HFPA decided to do the right thing.

    They decided to award the career and not the performance. Maybe for you that’s the right thing, not for me. They didn’t hate CMBYN,  they ignored it simply because of the taboo subject matter, which is a shame.

    Child, y’all are spicy! And here I thought y’all didn’t posses the range to both actressing and have a debate about a movie, but this season has proved me wrong. More on that later. As for the show, I was worried. To go off on a tangent, I hate to admit, but I feel like white sports viewers these past couple of years. There was a magical time years yonder where politics where kept to awards campaigning. But ever since #OscarsSoWhite, this element has come with the territory with my favorite pastime. I hated it initially, since I saw it for the core it was, but overtime I have mellowed out with it and accepted it as a part of the awards landscape going forward. This fucking country after all is a dumpster fire b/c of not going there when it comes to the discussion of many things and that is what these hashtags are about too. Addressing a system that has gone unchecked for too long. Do I wish that some of these SJWs knew how awards season usually works? Yes, but the points brought up are usually on point and, once again, attacks the institution that has been the norm. Take Get Out’s snub. More people should know that this awards group is a petty bunch, so say something out of pocket or not play the game, you’re done. Now why is that their way of running things and how come an exception was made for the two lead drama acting wins, especially for Gary Oldman? Things we know of course, but if outsiders come into our playground, know the rules is all I ask going forward since this element of the race is not going away ever now.
    As for the show, I was nervous, but it went beautifully. Seth was perfect. He could have a multiple run here as host. Strong monologue and his bits worked. I understand why they incorporate bits with it being late night hosts usually hosting these things. They are hit and miss for me, so when a bit works I can appreciate why they are in the show. I joked that this black thing was more about Weinstein’s funeral here as opposed to the movement and that was silly on my part. This was amazing to see. Women and men in solidarity. While the real work is still needed to be done, this was beautiful to see.
    The film winners were expected and sets the tone of the race going forward. I see it as a three way race between 3B, Get Out, and Lady Bird. With the drama winner, I have never seen a divided movie coming for the crown ever. I thought I saw it with La La Land and that was an inoffensive musical. This is a problematic movie that mirrors the times we are in and given how the season has been mapped out, backlash could get it. I personally thought the movie was mess, but this is not the hill I’m going to die on when it comes to debating its merits either way as a film. I’ll leave that to film Twitter, the boards, and the stink pieces that are for and against it. With Lady Bird, Black Swan secured Greta her directing bid and that was a great moment of the night. I can see it still being in a position to win also. It really has nothing going against it and has a narrative that is mirroring an important moment in our time. Same should be said for Get Out, but if 3B is proving anything, the discussion about race could be something that keeps it at bay for the old guard in the academy. But then Moonlight!
    Anyways, a whopper of a start to a spicy awards season!

    First of all, Timothee could still pull through at the SAG Awards, which would be far more impressive (and important to the Oscar race) than the Globe. It’s not over ‘til it’s over.

    Second of all, there is an immense difference between an awards body “hating” a film and an awards body not awarding a film because there was stronger competition in each of its categories.

    Exactly. They are squeamish about the issue of sex, in any form. They avoid it, ignore it, walk around it or pretend to adress it. The taboo on talking about sexuality and its complexity is damaging lives. It’s 2018 but CMBYN is still too innovative for some, the idea that sexuality is fluid and that most people have that one person that can change everything for them including sexuality-wise is scary for many.

    Chalamet turned 22 like two weeks ago.  All the people on these boards who believe his is a true gift and not just a one-movie-show should take solace that this very year he has ANOTHER role that, unless the film is somehow a farrago, will showcase him and grant him other nominations, if not outright wins.  And because Hollywood loves this, they might even give it to him as a “sorry for not giving it to you the year before” reward.  Y’all have such a collective hard-on for the kid, it literally sucks up all the air around him, the movie, and the experience of being a fan (and even a non-fan) of it.  A lot of hot air, when the film itself is hardly cause for it.

    Oldman, like his namesake, has maybe a decade left.  Now everyone’s coming out left and right with allegations and stories about abuse and misogynistic encounters and misconduct (and with very little actual evidence, tbh) and it’s made this entire year an inert experience in pseudo-politics.

    According to a great many here, the only deserving winners would have been Kaluuya or Chalamet, given that they’re essentially the only ones without a history of abuse, etc….  Give me a break.

    Nothing will change, especially when those agents of change parade around demanding it and showing “support” and “solidarity” but also doing nothing to actually move things forward, the notable cases where this isn’t true noted.

    I do love how certain Academy voters confirmed my suspicions that Moonlight received BP to appease everyone after the So White debacle…  It shows how transparent and hypocritical the entire town is, and how it will remain that way, even with the likes of Weinstein out of the picture.

    You cut off one head off the Hydra, and three more shall grow…

    This was among the Top 5 Best Golden Globes telecasts. So much ENERGY in the room, empowering, awkward and history-making – everything you want from an awards show.

    The winners were deserving, albeit a bit lackluster. Nicole, Oprah, Barbara, Meryl, Mariah, Angelina…the star power was insane. Legends galore. And yeah, the all-black dress code turned out to be the bold, beautiful iconography the #MeToo movement needed.

    Without James Franco (and the lipstick smudged on Oprah’s bottom teeth), this would have been perfect.
