The Golden Globes

I didn’t watch the Golden Globes last night. I was sick and fell asleep super early.

However, when I went online this morning, I saw some of the highlights from last nights award show.

Nearly all of the media highlighted Oprah’s award acceptance speech.

It’s not a question that she’s an amazing speaker, activist, you name it — Oprah can do it! 

Reese Witherspoon even tweeted ” I will now divide time like this: everything before Oprah’s speech versus everything after Oprah’s speech.”

After I watched Oprah’s speech and read a few articles from the press, I had to remind myself that that I was watching the Golden Globes.

As an outsider watching from home, the Globes felt more like a political and cultural movement than an awards show!

Hollywood was able to put on a united front in order to spread a new message about sexual harassment and sexual abuse.

Your time is up!

I am not a big movie lover, so I did not see most of the films that won awards. However, I did see Lady Bird.

Hollywood’s Foreign Press Association awarded Lady Bird for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.

For some reason, despite the glowing reviews I was surprised to see that Lady Bird won Best Motion Picture.

I saw the movie and liked it. However, I wasn’t particularly moved by it.

However, after re watching the trailer, I think it just hit a little too close to home for me. As I was watching the movie, I found myself cringing throughout many parts of the movie.

And yes, you guessed it… I saw it with my mom!

Lady Bird’s complex relationship with her mother highlighted throughout the movie, was almost too familiar!!! At certain points during the movie, I felt as those I could finish Lady Bird’s lines for her.

As my aunt told me” Lady Bird’s got nothing on ya!”

Think I could fit some of my story into the “Lady Bird plot” perfectly!

Watch the trailer below!

If your reading this mommy— what if….. this is the best version?
