Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone win acting honors and Damien Chazelle earns best director as La La Land dominates Golden Globes ceremony
On Sunday evening, all of the stars of the big and small screen hit the red carpet for the Golden Globes hosted by Jimmy Fallon in hope of capturing a gong and there was no surprises on the night as LA LA LAND dominated and looks set for Oscar glory with a record breaking winning seven awards including best acting awards for Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone and best director for Damien Chazelle, with MOONLIGHT winning the best picture accolade.
As you can see in the video player above, Gosling gave an emotional speech, thanking his wife Eva Mendes for her support. “You don’t get to be up here without standing on the shoulders of a mountain of people, and there’s just no time to thank everyone,” he said. “I’d just like to try and thank one person properly. While I was dancing and playing piano and having one of the best experiences I’ve ever had on a film, my lady was raising our daughter, pregnant with our second, and trying to help her brother fight his battle with cancer.”
When Meryl Streep was collecting her award for her Cecil B DeMille award, the mood in the ceremony suddenly shifted after she shared her thoughts on Donald Trump’s imitation and treatment of the disabled New York Times journalist Serge Kovaleski, which certainly seemed to silence many of those watching on below the stage.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson took home the award for best supporting actor for his role in NOCTURNAL ANIMALS over strong favorite Mahershala Ali, who was expected to win for his turn in Barry Jenkins’ MOONLIGHT.
Isabelle Huppert won the best actress in a motion picture gong for her performance in Paul Verhoeven’s controversial and divisive rape revenge comedy ELLE. The film also won the Golden Globe for best foreign language film.
Casey Affleck won the award for best actor in a drama for playing a grieving janitor in MANCHESTER BY THE SEA with Viola Davis also continued her streak of wins for her role in FENCES with the award for best supporting actress.
The Brits fared well at the prestigious ceremony, with the cast of THE NIGHT MANAGER having a very successful evening – Tom Hiddleston, Olivia Coleman and Hugh Lawrie all won on the night. Claire Foy also took home a gong for best actress in a TV series, for her performance in THE CROWN.
