The American singer and actress Lady Gaga wins a Golden Globe for the best movie song. Former champion Michael Douglas is honored for the Netflix series "Kominsky Method".
Second Golden Globe for Lady Gaga: The Association of Foreign Press, which assigns the Golden Globes, honored the song "Shallow" from the music drama "A Star Is Born" at night on Monday. The 32-year-old shares the award with Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt. Lady Gaga also has chances for a world as best actress. Alongside and directed by Bradley Cooper, she starred in "A Star Is Born", a young woman whose vocal talents are discovered by a star.
The singer already has a Globe trophy. In 2016, she was honored for her role in the TV miniseries "American Horror Story: Hotel".
Michael and Kirk Douglas
As the best television series, the spy thriller won the "Americans" and the comedy series "The Kominsky Method" about an aged actor. This is played by Michael Douglas, who also won a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a musical or comedy series. Douglas dedicated the award to his 102-year-old father Kirk Douglas.
Christian Bale received the award for best actor in a comedy, "Vice: The Second Man". Bale thanked his wife, who advised him less to the acceptance number because she knew how much trouble he could catch. Bale thanked Satan for inspiring how to play former US vice president Dick Cheney in Vice.
"Murder of Gianni Versace" cleans up
The series "The Assassination of Gianni Versace" tells the story of the murder of star designer Gianni Versace. Now there are several Globes for that. One for the best mini series, and one for Darren Criss, who plays the killer Andrew Cunanan. Cunanan had killed Versace in 1997 in Miami.
Director Ryan Murphy remembered in his assertion that homophobia – Versace was homosexual – is still a problem. "Our series is about a certain time, but these forces are not historical. They are here, they are among us, and we must resist." Artists in the film industry must represent those who are not adequately represented.
"Green Book" and "Bohemian Rhapsody"
Biographies are obviously very popular. Top Globe for Best Film Drama wins "Bohemian Rhapsody" over Queen frontman Freddie Mercury. Overall, Bryan Singer has worked two trophies: Leading actor Rami Malek (37) also earned the coveted award for best actor in a movie drama. In the Best Comedy / Musical category, Peter Farrelly's "Green Book" on racism in the US won the grand prize in the 1960s.
At the ceremony there were other awards for the "Green Book": As the best supporter Mahershala Ali won his first Golden Globe trophy. In the cinema he plays a black jazz pianist who travels in the 1960s with his white driver (played by Viggo Mortensen) through the southern states of the United States. The Best Screenplay Award went to Green Book.
Glenn close for the third
71-year-old Hollywood legend Glenn Close was happy to be the best actor in a drama. She got her third Golden Globe for her part in "The Wife". Her British colleague, Olivia Colman, took home a Best Actress in the Comedy / Musical category. She plays the British Queen Anne in the early 18th century in Yorgos Lanthimos' tragi comedy The Intrigue and Insanity.
As the best director, Mexican won Alfonso Cuarón for the black and white drama "Rome". He also won the award in the category of "best non-English language film" with the work of the lives of domestic workers in Mexico in the 70s.
Colorful on red carpet
On red carpet this year again was more fashion to see how they are known from the award of the Golden Globes. There was much black over there last year in solidarity with the #Metoo movement against sexual harassment. Participants and moderators of the ceremony have signaled that they planned a less serious evening.
Lady Gaga, Nicole Kidman, Heidi Klum, Daniel Bruehl and Bradley Cooper were among the many stars who walked over the red carpet in front of the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills Sunday afternoon (local time) for the 76th coveted movie trophy. It was a colorful picture – Lady Gaga in light blue robe, Catherine Zeta-Jones in rich green.
Employee Sandra Oh was emotionally involved in film and television diversity at the opening of this year's Golden Globes. She explained why, along with Andy Samberg, she moderates film and television awards. "I said yes to the fear of being on stage tonight because I wanted to be here to look at this audience and witness this moment of change," said Oh, who had tears in his eyes. Several winners of the first prizes at this year's ceremony were white.
Awarded since the 1944 Golden Globe Awards are the most important movie prizes after the Oscar. The winners will be settled by a group of nearly 100 international journalists who have long been working in Hollywood.
