'Bohemian Rhapsody' named as Best Drama at Golden Globes 2019

'Bohemian Rhapsody' named as Best Drama at Golden Globes 2019

On Sunday night (January 6), the film took home two Golden Globes, one for star Rami Malek and another for the film itself: Best Motion Picture, Drama. I would say yes-they used their intro to be both positive and aware of representation this year. "This is for and because of you".

If Constance Wu wins a Golden Globe tonight for her leading role in Crazy Rich Asians, it will be the first time in 38 years that a woman of Asian-decent won. Close bested favorite Lady Gaga ("A Star Is Born") as well as Nicole Kidman ("Destroyer"), Melissa McCarthy ("Can You Ever Forgive Me?") and Rosamund Pike ("A Private War") on her way to a third career Globe.

Olivia Colman thanked her "bitches", aka her co-stars Emma Stone and and Rachel Weisz, as she accepted her award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy.

Instead, small Focus Features CMSCA.O movie "Green Book" went home with the biggest haul - three - including best comedy, supporting actor (Mahershala Ali) and screenplay.

The show provided lots of laughs too, as when Christian Bale, who played former Vice President Dick Cheney in Vice, accepted the award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy.

Co-hosts Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg opened the Globes, put on by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, on a note of congeniality, including a mock roast of attendees and a string of jokes that playfully critiqued Hollywood.

"I said yes to the fear of being on this stage tonight becaus I wanted to be here to look out onto this audience and witness this moment of change", Oh told the crowds.

In the TV categories, best comedy series went to Netflix's "The Kominsky Method", starring Michael Douglas as an aging thespian who runs a prestigious acting class. Douglas also won the award for best actor in a TV comedy. I love you, you attractive man.

Golden Globe Awards 2019, one of the much awaited awards show in Hollywood, was a starry affair with the who's who of the fraternity gracing the red carpet.

Best director: Alfonso Cuaron, "Roma". But the frisky and often unpredictable awards show can offer clues to which actors and films will be honored at the Oscars.

The inclusion of minorities among this year's Golden Globes nominees and winners still marks a step in the right direction.
