La La Land wins big, Meryl Streep gets standing ovation, and Jimmy Fallon sings and dances at the 2017 Golden Globes!

The Golden Globes kicked off with an epic opening musical number led by Jimmy Fallon. A replica of the beginning of “La La Land”, the clever routine included cameos from Nicole Kidman, Amy Adams, and the cast of “Stranger Things” (Barb is alive and well! And Eleven can rap like none other!) Fallon had technical difficulty with his opening monologue, one that he joked about later stating he had a Mariah Carey New Year’s Eve moment.

There were many surprises, like Ryan Reynolds kissing Andrew Garfield after Ryan Golsing won for Best Actor in “La La Land”, some snubs (Mahershala Ali didn’t win for “Moonlight”), and an incredibly moving speech from Lifetime Achievement winner Meryl Streep accepting her Cecil B. DeMille Award. There were also some references to beloved icon Carrie Fisher, from Sarah Jessica Parker’s dress, to a moving tribute to both Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds.

Simon Helberg – “Florence Foster Jenkins”
Dev Patel – “Lion”
Aaron Taylor-Johnson – “Nocturnal Animals”

Winner: AARON TAYLOR-JOHNSON – “NOCTURNAL ANIMALS”

Now, this was a surprise. “La La Land” is one of the year’s best, don’t get us wrong, but the music and score overshadow the screenplay. “Moonlight” or “Manchester by the Sea” were expected to win. Nevertheless, no one can really complain about “La La Land” winning.

Justin Hurwitz – “La La Land”
Dustin O’Halloran, Volker Bertelmann – “Lion”
Nicholas Brittel – “Moonlight”

Winner: JUSTIN HURWITZ – “LA LA LAND”

This was a lock. Hurwitz’s hypnotic score for “La La Land” is thrilling. He scored Chazelle’s last picture “Whiplash” and brings a similar jazz element to the modernistic score that plays homage to the classic swinging musicals of the 50’s.

“Elle”
“Neruda”
“The Salesman”
“Toni Erdmann”

Winner: “ELLE”

The French film won two awards, for Best Foreign Film and for Best Actress (Isabelle Huppert). The intense film deals with a rape survivor struggling to identify her attacker.

Cecil B. DeMille Award: MERYL STREEP

Ok, so, Meryl Streep has won a lot of awards. A lot. And, she deserves every single one. She’s won 8 Golden Globes and 3 Oscars and counting. This year, she was recognized with a Lifetime Achievement Award. Viola Davis introduced her, as they have been close friends since working on 2008’s “Doubt”. Davis said of Streep, “You make me proud to be an artist”.

Clips were played from Streep’s most iconic and beloved works. Showing a broad range from dark comedies like “Death Becomes Her”, to musicals like “Mamma Mia”, to iconic comedy villain “The Devil Wears Prada”, to her most haunting performance in “Sophie’s Choice”.

Streep accepted her award and gave an incredibly moving speech about empathy and love in a world that has been dominated by so much hate. She voiced her hurt about the election, stating that, “It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter. Someone he outranked in privilege, power and the capacity to fight back. It kind of broke my heart when I saw it. I still can’t get it out of my head because it wasn’t in a movie. It was real life.”

She then quoted dear friend Carrie Fisher who told her, “Take your broken heart and make it into art.”
