The Golden Globes, a night of glitz, glamor and of course plenty of drama. The Golden Globes occurred on January 6, 2019 kicking off the award show season. The fashion was fabulous from Lupita Nyong’o in Calvin blue to Janelle Monae in classy Chanel. People went goo-goo for Gaga’s couture Valentino gown she wore making her 2019 award show debut.

This night was chalked full of action due to the fact that it awards both the best of movies and television. This year was filled with fantastic films such as A Star is Born, Bohemian Rhapsody, Green Book and many more. Television also had a stellar year with hits such as Killing Eve, the Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, and the Americans. Although the movies and television series being honored at the Globes this year were tremendous, this year will be remembered for upsets and awards that were long overdue.

The two host for the night, Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg kept the audience on their toes with clever jokes and witty sarcasm. But that was not all Oh contributed that night. Oh also came away the award for best actress in a television series drama becoming the first woman of Asian descent to win this award in 39 years. Oh was also the first Asian woman to host the Golden Globes as well as win multiple Globes. Kate Shigo 20’ as an avid Grey’s Anatomy fan says that “it is crazy to me that with so many talented Asian actresses in this country alone that it has taken this long to have a woman of Asian descent win this award again.”

Not only did this Golden Globes make history it also had a lot of unexpected wins. The front runner going into the night was A Star is Born starring Lady Gaga and Bradly Cooper, but after the night people were rethinking the movies future award show success. The film only won one award while losing the other four awards it was nominated for. DJ Limp 22’ a major A Star is Born fan was shocked by the movies results at the event saying “ I thought the movie was a shoe in and was shocked when it only won the award for best original song.”

The major film awards for the night were taken by Glen Close for her stellar performance in the Wife, Rami Malek for his remarkable portrayal of Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody, and to wrap up the night Bohemian Rhapsody took home Best Picture Drama. All in all, the 2019 Golden Globes had everything an award show should have and left America in heavy anticipation for the rest of the award show season such as the highly anticipated Oscars. Will Bohemian Rhapsody continue on their winning streak? Will Lady Gaga pull through and surpass Glen Close to win Best Actress? All will be revealed soon enough and Seattle Prep and rest of America will be waiting on the edge of their seats to find out.
