Welcome to the Legion!

Hulu – The Handmaid’s Tale won two awards at the 2019 Golden Globes

The 2018 Golden Globes took place Sunday night, honoring some of the best in film and TV during the past year. Seth Myers was the master of ceremonies in the star-studded show, but the most memorable moments tonight surrounded the strong statements the crowd decided to make in support of the #MeToo Movement. The movement was on everyone’s minds tonight and certain moments connected to the movement were met with mixed criticism. The Red Carpet was a sea of black as many came out in support of the #MeToo Movement by donning all black in solidarity. One particularly memorable moment from the evening came when Oprah Winfrey gave her speech upon acceptance of the Cecil B. DeMille award for lifetime achievement. She gave an immensely powerful speech that hit upon the notes of the #MeToo Movement and is personally one of my favorite award speeches ever.

This awards season also marks what may be the year of women in terms of which projects will be bringing home the awards.

The big winner tonight at the Golden Globes was Martin McDonagh’s Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. That film took home four awards: Best Motion Picture — Drama, Best Screenplay, Best Actress in a Motion Picture — Drama (Frances McDormand), and Best Supporting Actor (Sam Rockwell). Lady Bird also came out on top with two wins – for Best Motion Picture — Comedy and Best Actress in a Motion Picture — Comedy (Saoirse Ronan).

Women also led in the TV Categories. HBO’s Big Little Lies dominated the award ceremony and took home 4 wins. The Handmaid’s Tale followed closely behind along with The Marvelous Ms. Maisel. Both shows won two awards each.
