On Sunday, January 8th, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association hosted its annual Golden Globe Awards. This award show is to honor different movies and TV shows.

During the Golden Globes, there were many ups and downs. The mix up of the upcoming movies was a reoccurring problem. The main mix up was between Hidden Figures, starring Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe and Fences, starring Viola Davis and Denzel Washington. Jenna Bush Hager addressed it as “Hidden Fences” on NBC’s red carpet show when she was interviewing Pharrell Williams (who is a producer of “Hidden Figures”), and then Michael Keaton said it onstage. Look alive out there, folks.

Critique Margaret Lyons says host, Jimmy Fallon, was more of a nuisance at the show and lacked the pep he’d usually bring. Lyons says most of his material was tiny and not funny.

Meryl Streep made a memorable acceptance speech. She used her speech to call out Donald Trump for mocking a disabled New York Times reporter. The room roundly applauded her remarks, but on social media some conservative commentators immediately criticized her and the target of her remarks had its’ own take.

The La La Land cast took home multiple Golden Globes on Sunday night. The movie had seven nominations, and won six. The two main actors, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, took home best actor and actress in a musical comedy. The movie won best comedy or musical motion picture. Damien Chazelle also won best director for this motion pictures. The La La Land movie definitely had a great year at the Golden Globes.

Now these actors will prepare for arguably the most important award show in Hollywood, The Oscars.
