Golden Globes 2020

I have been waiting patiently last night to see the Golden Globes and I’ve cast my ballot after a lot of consideration. I really loved “Joker” and the descent into madness it talks about. The thing is I really loved Almodovar’s feature “Pain and Glory” and I sat breathless at the 2h showing of “Parasite” which I thought was really well made and directed.I loved “Marriage Story” and I thought Scarlet Johansson and Adam Driver gave some of their best performances in it.TGK_GoldenGlobesBallot2020-crop.jpgI got a few a lot of movies wrong:

  1. Best Motion Picture – Drama: 1917
  2. Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy: Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood
  3. Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama: Renée Zellweger (Really? Really? She was atrocious in the Judy Garland role!)
  4. Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama: Joaquin Phoenix (Well done!! – he was my second choice after Antonio Banderas)
  5. Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy: Awkwafina
  6. Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy: Taron Egerton (win!)
  7. Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture: Laura Dern (Marriage Story. I don’t even remember her from the movie!)
  8. Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture: Brad Pitt (win!)
  9. Best Director – Motion Picture: Sam Mendes (1917) (hmm..)
  10. Best Screenplay – Motion Picture : Quentin Tarantino (Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood)
  11. Best Motion Picture – Animated : Missing Link – are you serious? That movie was like 5th in my rankings. Frozen 2 was way better than this.. How to train your Dragon made me freaking cry! The Lion King made me cry! OK, I do cry a lot but “Missing Link” elicited no emotional response from me.
  12. Best Motion Picture – Foreign Language: Parasite, South Korea, Bong Joon Ho (I admit, I really liked it. It was my second choice after Pain and Glory)
  13. Best Original Score – Motion Picture: Hildur Guðnadóttir (Joker) – WIN!
  14. Best Original Song – Motion Picture: I’m Gonna Love Me Again, Rocketman
  15. Best Television Series – Drama: Succession
  16. Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy: Fleabag (WIN) – she also won best actress

All in all, really happy for Brad Pitt and Fleabag! And that “The Irishman” walked home with nothing.02carpetbagger1-videoSixteenByNineJumbo1600.jpg
