2015 Golden Globes: The Recap and The Winners

The smoke has cleared and we now have our list of winners from the 2015 Golden Globe Awards.

This was a real wild card year – with no real steamrolling by a single film, and a few surprises, specifically in the television categories. What more could we expect from the Oscars’ drunk and unpredictable awards show cousin?!

This year’s Golden Globes also marked Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s last (contracted) year as the hostesses with the most-esses. True to form, my celebrity BFFs opened with a strong and hilarious monologue, calling out all the big names, and even some of the newcomers. If anything, there wasn’t enough of this comedic duo during the broadcast.


Highlights included the honoring of upstarts like Gina Rodriguez, Eddie Redmayne’s win (not technically a newcomer, but a much deserved win), streaming services like Amazon and Netflix getting in on the awards game, and HBO was pretty much locked out.

Finally, there aas some big time recognition for industry veterans (and personal favorites) like Julianne Moore, Richard Linklater, Michael Keaton and J.K. Simmons.

We had some hilarious bits with Margaret Cho, and some eyerolls for Jeremy Renner talking about JLo’s bits (“you’ve got the globes”). Ricky Gervais narrowly avoided his own “Adele Dazeem” moment…. And you guys… PRINCE made a random appearance.

George Clooney was charming as hell in his acceptance of the Cecil B. DeMille award, but it was the lead up that had us all talking.

Amal is a human rights lawyer who worked on the Enron case, was an adviser to Kofi Annan regarding Syria, and was selected for a three-person U.N. commission investigating rules of war violations in the Gaza Strip. So tonight, her husband is getting a lifetime achievement award.”

Did I agree with all of the winners? Not particularly… but hey, with the exceptional films that were at least nominated, we’re all winners in the grand scheme of things… us….and Prince (and Allison Janney who is perhaps a huge fan – see below).
