Golden Globes Winners and Uproar

Golden Globes Winners and Uproar

Emma Coons, Lover of Award Shows

With 25 categories to decide winners for, 14 in film and 11 in television, this year the Hollywood Foreign Press had their work cut out for them. Also, in this age of constant political drama and uproar within Hollywood itself, Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh did too. Both of them managed to keep it fairly light during the show and kept the laughs rolling, but many believe Oh did not live up to Samberg’s loud personality. She did, however, take home her own Globe The biggest upset, which we have all heard of by now, came when Bohemian Rhapsody, a movie with only 62% on Rotten Tomatoes and 48% on Metacritic, won Best Drama Motion Picture over other major contenders such as Black Panther (97% on RT), Blackkklansmen (95%), If Beale Street Could Talk (95%), and A Star is Born (90%). This disparity leads you to wonder, “Who is the Hollywood Foreign Press and why would they make this decision?” The Hollywood Foreign Press is a non-profit group of journalists and reporters whose primary subjects are mainstream media outside the US. Deciding on this major upset has brought the Golden Globes, an award show that has been losing traction year by year, far more publicity this year post-show, and distinguished these choices from the Academy Awards, when oftentimes all the choices are the same. Usually choices for the Oscars seem clear post-Globes, but this year, not so much. In conclusion, the winners might be odd, but here they are:
