Michelle...WOW nice speech
Once Upon A Time also isn't a comedy... kinda makes no sense how the HFPA categorizes things. I remember Matt Damon being kind of flabbergasted when he won Comedy actor for The Martian.
I normally love Tarantino films, but just couldn't get into Once Upon A Time.Yeah, but at least Matt Damon's character had some funny lines. I agree that Once Upon a Time is not a comedy. Also, it had some great acting, but it dragged for me. I've never really understood the appeal of Tarantino films, though. I much preferred Knives Out and Rocket Man.
agree with the three above. also loving Jennifer Aniston on stage presenting in Dior Haute Couture, Kaitlyn Dever in Valentino, Margot Robie in Chanel Haute Couture, Laura Dern looked great in Saint Laurent while accepting her award, and loving the earrings worn by Taylor Swift. Renee Zelw. photographs VERY toned.Thus far my favourite dress I've seen is Ana de Armas. Simple and classic, but oh so sparkly! Also surprising that Elton was the subdued one, with his hubby being flashy.
Unfortunately don't love Jennifer Lopez' dress. Looks like a Christmas present.
ETA Also love Saoirse Ronan's dress. Looks like fashionable chainmail.
Bleh, that's supposed to be funny?
But at the Beverly Hilton, where the three-hour-plus ceremony took place, the mood was already somber thanks to an impeachment, the threat of war with Iran and devastating bush fires in Australia.
The last thing anyone needed was for the smirking master of ceremonies to reprimand them for having hope, or taunt the room for trying to use their influence to change things for the better.
Almost immediately, however, it became clear Gervais wasn’t the funniest guy in the room at the 77th Golden Globes — and he wasn’t running the show, either.
His jab at the hypocrisy of Hollywood also resonated: “Apple roared into the TV game with ‘The Morning Show,’ a superb drama about the importance of dignity and doing the right thing, made by a company that runs sweatshops in China,” he said of the new entrant to streaming TV. “Well, you say you’re woke, but the companies you work for in China — unbelievable. Apple, Amazon, Disney. If ISIS started a streaming service you’d call your agent, wouldn’t you?”
The commentary would have meant far more if Gervais himself had been brave enough to drop the tired agitator shtick and, for once, read the room.
Here's my Ricky Gervais problem: The idea that celebrities are not only pampered babies but hypocrites who cause the problems they make speeches deploring and should therefore shut up and act/sing/be grateful is a right-wing talking point, and an especially stupid one. >
It's not an act of speaking truth to power or of bravery to attack celebs on that front--it's a tired way of scolding people into silence because you don't like what they're saying, and saying that he's "calling out" the hyperprivileged is just the same thing in a new guise. >
You'll never go broke ending a night scowling at celebrities and saying, "Get drunk, do your drugs, **** off," which I think were his last words on the show. There will always be people to say, "Yeah! You tell 'em!" But tell 'em what? "**** off" isn't a stance. It's a tantrum. >
Anyway: There were celebrities who used their stage time to say valuable things coherently last night, and others who said valuable things incoherently, and others who talked about themselves. I don't think yelling at any of them is of great interest. Peace.

Can't say I really liked too many of these fashions.
PIERS MORGAN: “Ricky Gervais delivered a glorious kick in the globes to Hollywood's woke virtue-signalling hypocrites - and exposed them as a bunch of shameless two-faced charlatans”
Selfless do-gooders left the Golden Globes feeling abused, insulted and shell-shocked, thanks to a host who couldn't give a damn about their hurt feelings. They can't say they weren't warned.www.dailymail.co.uk
