A golden night in La La Land
La La Land dazzled. The Night Manager surprised. Moonlight prevailed. The 74th Golden Globes were full of both expected wins and true surprises, making for an exciting night where anything could happen. As anticipated, La La Land won over the Hollywood Foreign Press Association the same way it did audiences, earning a record 7 wins at the Globes last night.
In the TV category, things were a little more up-in-the-air, as Hugh Laurie and Tom Hiddleston both won for their roles in The Night Manager over Courtney B. Vance and Sterling K. Brown for their work in The People v. OJ: American Crime Story. (TBH, Sterling K. Brown is one of the best actors around right now. His role on This Is Us is what makes me watch that emotionally manipulative show week after week!) And in the highly competitive Best Actress-TV Comedy category, where there were six nominees instead of the usual five, Black-ish's Tracee Ellis Ross won over predicted winner Issa Rae. Honestly, that category was an impossible choice, as all of the nominees are phenomenal on their respective television shows.
On the red carpet, too, it seemed that there were many winners but no real losers. There were some looks that dazzled, but I never saw a dress or hairstyle I truly hated, and I love when I have to struggle to pick a best dressed celebrity!
Sunday's ceremony was bookended by two days of rain in LA, so I loved seeing bright colors aplenty. Yellow and pink were the two big color trends of the night:
|Reese Witherspoon in Atelier Versace | Natalie Portman in Prada | Viola Davis in Michael Kors | Maisie Williams in Ong Oaj Pairam | Emily Ratajkowski in Reem Acra|
|Felicity Jones in Gucci | Angela Bassett in Christian Siriano | Lola Kirke in Andrew Gn | Zoe Saldana in Gucci | Claire Foy in Erdem|
|Sarah Paulson in Marc Jacobs | Emma Stone in Valentino | Tracee Ellis Ross in Zuhair Murad Couture | Nicole Kidman in Alexander McQueen | Ruth Negga in Louis Vuitton|
|Amy Adams in Tom Ford | Mandy Moore in Naeem Khan | Kristen Bell in Jenny Packham | Blake Lively in Atelier Versace|
|Kathryn Hahn in Brandon Maxwell | Octavia Spencer in Laura Basci | Evan Rachel Wood in Altuzarra|
