I have already posted about my favourite fashion moments from Sunday’s 2015 Golden Globes, however I wanted to highlight a few of my favourite moments from throughout the evening.
Favourite Golden Globe Winner
Amy Adams has been one of my favourite actresses for a long time now, as she is a true chameleon that always crushes any role she is given. This is Amy’s second Golden Globe, earned for her work in Big Eyes, as she received her first Golden Globe last year for her stunning performance in American Hustle.
A few of my other favourite Amy roles include her portrayal of:
- Brenda Song alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in Catch Me If You Can
- Charlene Flemina alongside Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale in The Fighter
- Mickey Lobel alongside Clint Eastwood in Trouble with the Curve
- Lois Lane alongside Henry Cavill in Man of Steel
- Sydney Prosser alongside the amazing cast of American Hustle
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have delivered some amazing lines throughout their past three years of hosting duties for the Golden Globes. My favourite line from this year goes to Tina Fey for her delivery of the following:
Amal Clooney is 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.
Joanne Froggatt won her first Golden Globe for her portrayal of Anna Bates on Downton Abbey. She gave a beautiful acceptance speech where she took a moment to raise awareness for sexual assault victims. *SPOILER ALERT* Her character was raped on the show and she chose to pay tribute to rape survivors who had written her letters after the episode aired.
I received a small number of letters from survivors of rape. One woman summed up the thoughts of many by saying she wasn’t sure why she’d written but she just felt in some way she wanted to be heard. I’d like to say, I heard you and I hope saying this so publicly in some way means you feel the world hears you.
Even though several of my favourite actors and actresses did not win on Sunday, I wanted to acknowledge their work from this past year.
- Uzoamaka “Uzo” Aduba for her portrayal of Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren on the Netflix sensation Orange Is The New Black. [Top Left Picture]
- Matthew McConaughey & Woody Harrelson for their performances of Detective Rustin “Rust” Spencer Cohle and Detective Martin “Marty” Eric Hart in the first season of True Detective. [Top Right Picture]
- Rosamund Pike gave a striking performance in the film adaptation of Gone Girl. [Bottom Left Picture]
- The Best Drama category was stocked with five very impressive films, but I absolutely loved The Imitation Game so I was pulling for it to win. This film is a historical thriller about British mathematician Alan Turing who helped to crack Nazi Germany’s Enigma code during the Second World War. Benedict Cumberbatch & Keira Knightley both gave breathtaking performances, so I was also sad neither of them won in their categories. [Bottom Right Picture]
