2018 Golden Globe Awards Live Blog and Recap (VIDEOS)

Oprah Winfrey accepts the Cecil B. DeMille Award for her “outstanding contribution to the entertainment field” at the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, CA on January 7, 2018.

We’re Live Blogging all the Golden Globe winners here. So, watch this space. This year’s awards are airing on NBC. Seth Meyers is set to host, live from the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Watch out for attendees to be dressed in black, which is to acknowledge the #MeToo movement. After revelations that entertainment mogul Harvey Weinstein had spent years sexually harassing women, it was like a set of dominoes fell. Many other powerful men were outed, including Kevin Spacey, Dustin Hoffman and more. The movement has kicked off a dialog about how to move forward. Expect LOTS of speeches to be focused on the subject tonight.

American Idol OG winner Kelly Clarkson is one of the many presenters. Enjoy this clip of her meeting (AND FREAKING OUT OVER) Meryl Streep!

“Good evening ladies and remaining gentleman,” Seth Meyers greets the crowd. There’s a new era underway. And I can tell because it’s been years since a white man’s been this nervous in Hollywood.”

To Seth Rogen: “Remember when he was the guy making the most trouble with North Korea? SIMPLER TIMES.”

Harvey Weinstein isn’t in the room tonight, but because I’ve heard he’s crazy and hard to work with,” and “In 20 years he’ll be the only one booed during his in memoriam segment.” The audience groans. “It’ll sound like that,” Seth says.

Amy Poehler mocking Myers for “mansplaining?” AWESOME.

Oh. Some of the actors in the audiences brought activists with them as guests. Seth says most jobs on film sets are full of ordinary people. “Those people aren’t there thanks to their rich dad,” he quips, “Except for that one guy.”

Myers ends the segment thanking the women of Hollywood. “People in this room worked really hard to get here,” he says. “But it’s clear now than ever before that the women had to work even harder…I look forward to you leading us into whatever comes next.” 

Gal Gadot and Dwayne Johnson present the first award. The Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television goes to Nicole Kidman for Big Little Lies. It’s her fourth win. Aw. A great big kiss from hubby Keith Urban. Nicole thanks her mama, who was a feminist and an advocate. She ends with this sweet thank you, “And Keith Urban, when my cheek is against yours, everything melts away. I love you so much.”

Viola Davis and Helen Mirren present Best Supporting Actor Motion Picture to Sam Rockwell for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

Next,  Zac Efron takes the stage to introduce one of the nominated films. The movie about PT Barnum, The Greatest Showman, stars Hugh Jackman.

Jennifer Aniston and Carol Burnett are next. Standing ovation for Carol! “I’m happy you’re coming back back to television,” says Carol, “Will & Grace was one of my favorite shows.” Jen asks to pull Carol’s ear. “Kinky!” Carol jokes. They present Best TV Comedy/Musical Actress to Rachel Brosnahan for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Best TV Drama Actress to Elizabeth Moss for Handmaid’s Tale. She dedicates her award to novelist Margaret Atwood.

Meyers introduces the HFPA president, Meher Tatna, as someone “who actually is a stable genius.” She announces the creation of two journalism awards. Free speech. 

Sarah Paulson introduces a clip of Steven Spielberg’s movie The Post, which tells the story of The Washington Post and the Pentagon Papers. It’s a story that resonates.

Garrett Hedlund and Kerry Washington present Best Actor in a Series TV Drama to Sterling K. Brown for his role in This is Us. He thanks his wife and kids first! Then the ensemble cast. And finally the producer for creating a role that explores what it means to be black in America.

Hoo boy. Roseanne Barr and John Goodman are next to present TV Series Drama. AWKWARD. They joke about how she’s famous for creating drama. Mercifully they kept it short. (She’s been in the press lately after a pro-Trump twitter meltdown–her account is a garbage dump). And the award goes to The Handmaid’s Tale.

Seth Rogen is next to introduce The Disaster Artist, a film about the strange strange man, Tommy Wiseau who made the Worst Movie EVER The Room. Tommy is in the audience with star James Franco.

Christina Hendricks and Neil Patrick Harris take the stage, they present Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television to Alexander Skarsgard for Big Little Lies. The presenters had to be quick. They’re behind already.

Mariah Carey and Common are next. Ditto on the patter. They go right into presenting Best Original Score to Alexandre Desplat for The Shape of Water. Whoa. Played off after less than a minute. 

Kelly Clarkson and Keith Urban are next to present Best Original Song. Dang there’s no time for patter! Oh….they sing the announcement! Hee. “This is Me” from The Greatest Showman win the award. Songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul accept the award.

“And the Golden Globe Goes tooooo”

After Octavia Spencer introduces a clip from The Shape of Water, Shirley MacLaine and Emma Stone present Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy to James Franco for The Disaster Artist. He invites Tommy Wiseau on stage. I think, at this point, everyone is drunk.

J.K. Simmons and Sharon Stone present Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television to Laura Dern for Big Little Lies. It’s her fourth win. She urges the culture to battle bullying.

Sebastian Stan and Allison Janney are next. She’s got a bird on her shoulder? Probably part of a bit that they don’t have time to do. ETA: I’m being told: Allison plays Tonya Harding’s mother in I Tonya. During “interviews” that take place in the film, she has a bird on her shoulder that continually pecks at her.  Janney plays Tonya Harding’s mother, a piece of work by all accounts. Janney and Stan introduce a clip from the film.

Seth introduces his Saturday Night Live pals Amy Poehler and Andy Samberg who present Best Animated Feature to Coco.

Dwayne Johnson introduces Golden Globe Ambassador, his sixteen year old daughter Simone Garcia Johnson. The role used to be called Miss Golden Globes. Apparently, the role will be expanded, and will be more than just being famous by proxy and looking cute. 

Kate Hudson and Aaron Taylor-Johnson present Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture to Allison Janney for I Tonya. Oh. The real Tonya Harding is in the audience!

After a mini clip show of roles played by centaurian Kirk Douglas, he takes the stage with his daughter-in-law Catherine Zeta-Jones to present Best Screenplay – Motion Picture. He’s frail, in a wheelchair. But he’s here! Zeta-Jones details his heroic efforts fighting the Hollywood Blacklist in the 50s. The award goes to Martin McDonagh for Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing Missouri. He thinks his mom wanted Lady Bird to win. Heh.

Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker present Best Foreign Language film to In The Fade from Germany and France. Production is RACING through these awards now. One dude barely got a chance to speak.

Hugh Grant is back to introduce the WWII film. Dunkirk. That’s the movie where Harry Styles made his big screen debut.

Darren Criss, Penelope Cruz, Ricky Martin, and Edgar Ramirez from the upcoming Ryan Murphy Versace series, present Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television to Ewan McGregor for Fargo

Halle Berry introduces a clip from  the film Get Out.

Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington from Game of Thrones are on stage to present Best TV Series, Musical or Comedy to The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. And Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Comedy or Musical to Aziz Ansari from Master of None. Hm. Ansari totally bleeped in his thank you speech.

The Cecil B. DeMille award, being presented to Oprah Winfrey, is next. Reese Witherspoon, who stars in a Wrinkle in Time with the superstar personality, introduces the tribute. After a few remarks, a video clip rolls. Oprah’s done a lot of stuff in the last 30 years. She nods to Sidney Poitier and all the people who helped her along the way. She also shouts out to journalists who uncover the truth. “I value the press more than ever before,” Oprah says, “Speaking the truth is the most powerful tool we have.” She mentions the women who have been brave enough to call out the abusers. She expresses gratitude to woman–from all across the spectrum–who endured years of abuse. To the powerful men who have abused women, “Their time is up,” says Oprah. That gets a standing ovation. Oprah mentions Recy Taylor who was raped by 6 white men, but in Jim Crow south, they didn’t come to justice. Her speech is ROUSING. She finishes: “I want all the girls watching here now to know that a NEW DAY IS ON THE HORIZON. And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men…”  ETA: All over social media, folks are speculating that Oprah will run for president, with a speech like that.

Ron Howard, Natalie Portman present Best Director – Motion Picture. “And here all all the MALE nominees,” Natalie says with dripping sarcasm. Scathing. And the award goes to Guillermo del Toro for The Shape of Water. The band starts playing him off, and he ignores them. “Give me a minute. It took me over 20 years to get here.”

Oh hey. It’s an actual female director Greta Gerwig. She helmed Lady Bird. She introduces a clip from the movie.

Robert Pattinson and Emma Watson present Best TV Movie or Limited-Series to Big Little Lies. Tonight’s big winner! Producer David E. Kelley accepts the award.

Jessica Chastain and Chris Hemsworth present Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy to Saoirse Ronan for Lady Bird. Jessica makes a crack about the winner being awarded the difference between what she earned vs her male counterpart. Ronan says her mom is in the room–on Facetime.

Dakota Johnson introduces a clip from the LGBT coming of age film, Call Me By Your Name.

And Salma Hayek introduces the last clip from a nominated movie, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri.

FOUR MORE AWARDS TO PRESENT. Only 15 minutes left.

Michael Keaton and Alicia Vikander present Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy to Lady Bird. When the male producers take the stage, they defer to  director Greta Gerwig as the only one who should speak. And she does.

Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon stars of Thelma and Louise, back together again! They also make a crack about the disparity between actor and actresses’ salaries. They present Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama to Gary Oldman for Darkest Hour. The music playyys…and Gary ignores. We’re gonna run late tonight.

Isabelle Huppert and Angelina Jolie present Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama to Frances McDormand for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. “I have some things to say!” Frances says. She congratulates the HPFA for electing a female president. They bleeped her for saying “shite.” She says, “The women in this room are not here for the food. They’re here for the work.”

Barbra Streisand is introduced as the only woman to win an award for directing. She mentions that she won her award, for Prince of Tides, in 1984. “Times up!” she says. Oprah has started a catch phrase. Or maybe not. Streisand presents Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy to Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
