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!
