The 74th annual Golden Globe Awards took place in Hollywood tonight at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association honouring the year’s best in Film and Television. Taking home top honours tonight with seven wins was Musical La La Land directed by Damien Chazelle. Premiering to raves at the Toronto International Film Festival this past September and winning the People’s Choice Award, the Film swept important categories Best Motion Picture Comedy/Musical, Screenplay (Damien Chazelle), Director (Damien Chazelle), Actress (Emma Stone), Actor (Ryan Gosling), Original Score (Justin Hurwitz) and Original Song (City of Stars).
See the Cast and Director post-victory:
Moonlight which has been a force all Awards Season almost walked away empty-handed, but alas won Best Motion Picture Drama for up-and-coming Director Barry Jenkins.
Tonight’s Best Foreign Motion Picture winner Elle certainly makes the Best Actress Oscars race a bit more interesting with Isabelle Huppert winning in an upset over favoured Natalie Portman.
Manchester by the Sea which long has been considered an Awards Season frontrunner was rewarded Best Actor in a Motion Picture (Casey Affleck).
In the Television categories, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, Atlanta and The Crown proved popular. The former won Best Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television and also a win for Sarah Paulson who starred as famed lawyer Marcia Clark. Atlanta, which also is broadcast by FX like The People, won for Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy and Best Actor in a TV Series Comedy (Donald Glover). Netflix‘s The Crown won Best Television Series Drama and Best Actress in a Television Series Drama (Claire Foy).
The show was hosted by Funnyman Jimmy Fallon, who despite technical glitches with the Teleprompter after a spirited La La Land-inspired opening number, managed to overcome adversity to a punchy Donald Trump-targeted speech stating “This is the Golden Globes, one of the few places left where America still honors the popular vote”. He also continued to poke fun referencing this year’s Cecil B. DeMille Award recipient Meryl Streep who starred in Golden Globe-nominated Florence Foster Jenkins, about the world’s worst singer, proclaiming “Even she turned down performing at Donald Trump’s inauguration.”.
Watch the Cold Opening:
Streep was introduced by Supporting Actressin a Motion Picture winner Viola Davis, moving the crowd with some profound statements in her DeMille acceptance speech, encouraging us to “Take our broken hearts and turn them into art.”. She also made a couple pokes at Mixed Martial Arts and President Elect Donald Trump stating, “Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence insights violence. When the powerful use their position to bully others we all lose.”.
Watch the Speech:
Surprises this evening included victories by Aaron Taylor-Johnson for Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture for Nocturnal Animals, which has been much-overlooked this Awards Season. Also, many were surprised that critical darling Game of Thrones, nearing the end of its run, was overlooked all night in favour of new series, expensively-produced The Crown. Daughter of music icon Diana, Tracee Ellis Ross achieved distinction becoming the first black Actress since Debbie Allen in 1983 to win Best Actress in a Television Series, Musical or Comedy for Blackish.
Fashion always is a highlight at the Golden Globes and yellow/gold proved popular with actresses Reese Witherspoon, Emily Ratajkowski, Priyanka Chopra and nominees for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture and Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama respectively, Viola Davis and Natalie Portman, donning variations of the colour on the Red Carpet. Actresses Mandy Moore and Kristen Bell also dropped draws with tasteful cleavage-revealing pieces.
Next up are the Academy Awards, which air Sunday, February 26, 20178:30 PM EST on ABC.

Something to make your weekend! Madonna made an appearance on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon and it was epic! You must witness Fallon, The Roots and The Queen of Pop herself do a super lo-fi version of her Classic, Holiday. So good!!!! Even if Madge does get drowned out a bit. Still amazing!!!
I have ALWAYS loved Christina Aguilera, but this is just amazing! In addition to treating some incredibly-lucky Fans at Starbucks Rockefeller Centre to free Coffees, Selfies and Autographs last week, she’s promoting her return to NBC‘s The Voice with a bang. Aguilera just appeared on THE TONIGHT SHOW with Jimmy Fallon and always out to get us clicking “share”, Fallon had Aguilera play WHEEL OF MUSICAL IMPRESSIONS. You’ll never guess who she had to imitate!!
That was epic! I wonder what Britney is thinking…. Although they totally are Friends. She wouldn’t mind… right? RIGHT??
Aguilera is working with Pharrell on her eighth Album and comes fresh off a Grammy Win for her Collabo with A Great Big World on Say Something.
Despite filling hosting duties on Saturday Night Live last night, former Alumni Jimmy Fallon may have gotten help from a few Friends – but it is those few Buddies who helped deliver huge laughs on a memorable Christmas episode of Comedy-Sketch Series, now in its 39th Season!
In addition to Madonna, Sir Paul McCartney, Barry Gibb and Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Fallon got a major boost from his Pal and Musical Guest and multi-time Host, Justin Timberlake!
Sir Paul McCartney would kick-off the star-studded Affair in the Evening’s Opening Monologue which would have Fallon doing his best impressions of David Bowie, Bob Dylan and Sir Paul McCartney, only for the latter to appear suddenly on-stage!
See Fallon and McCartney perform Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas:
Timberlake brought back his popular Musical Liquorville Sketch, this time in Holiday Spirit and with the help of Fallon, competing with a Charity Gift Wrapper in Cast Member Aidy Bryant. Bring it on down to Wrappinville! Adorbs!
See TheWrap-Off below!
Although nobody expected it, Madonna had Instagrammed a Photo real-time of her on the Saturday Night Live Stage sitting behind what appeared to be The Bee Gees. Within moments, those watching SNL would realize would this would mean! And who could guess the real Barry Gibb himself would join-in on the fun!
Madonna and the real Gibb himself on The Barry Gibb Show!
Perhaps one of the Highlights of the Evening was the Musical Sketch Let’s Do It in my Twin Bed featuring Fallon and the Ladies of SNL, a bit of an Homage to The Pussycat Dolls with Sisters singing about a little wild surprise for their Boyfriends, “getting wild in a bed for a child!” at their Mom and Dad’s!
Watch Let’s Do It in my Twin Bed below:
One thing that never ceases to make me laugh are imaginary Music Compilation Sketches and here is SNL‘s take on NOW That’s What I Call Christmas featuring impressions of Alanis Morissette, Andrea Bocelli and Alan Rickman:
My favourite Sketch though was the super-sweet Baby, It’s Cold Outside Sketch with Weekend Update‘s Cecily Strong, with her as the clingy One-Night-Stand who manages to win Fallon over amidst a Blizzard in NYC:
Global Television will have the official Videos up on their Site at some point today. Click here to see the official Videos.

There couldn’t have been a better choice! Saturday Night Live Alumni Seth Meyers officially has been named to take-over hosting responsibilities for Jimmy Fallon on NBC‘s popular Late Night Franchise. He is preceeded by TV Greats like David Letterman, Conan O’Brien and Jay Leno.
The Transition begins next February after the completion of NBC‘s Winter Olympics Coverage in Russia. Likewise, Jimmy Fallon at that time will be transitioning over to host The Tonight Show, taking the reins from Jay Leno, as announced previously. Meyers begins preparations in January, after appearing on the first-half of the forthcoming season of Saturday Night Live, which he has been a part of for 12 seasons already.
We actually spotted Seth Meyers out partying at the Met Gala last week in New York City with his Girlfriend Alexi Ashe and were one of the lucky few who got a Pic with him! Amazing Guy!
After weeks of speculation, at last Jimmy Fallon and Jay Leno confirm what we already sorta knew! Indeed, Fallon will be taking over hosting duties for Leno on 60-years-running institution The Tonight Show beginning 2014 after Leno‘s contract ends and the Show moves from West to East Coast.
To address the rumours, both Fallon and Leno put together a Musical Sketch featuring Tonight from West Side Story, where we learn that wow! the latter can actually sing amazingly well! Mostly funny, the Sketch also captures Leno‘s sadness as he reflects upon an ending chapter and Fallon‘s gratitude for the opportunity.
Watch it below:
Meanwhile, Fallon‘s Saturday Night Live Alumni and Friend Seth Meyers is said to be a lock to take-over Fallon‘s current gig on NBC‘s Late Night Franchise. More to come on this…
So basically, Seth Meyers is the new Jimmy Fallon. Jimmy Fallon is the new Jay Leno. And Jay Leno is leaving on-top.
It’s that time of the year again! How can you not love Jimmy Fallon, let alone Jimmy Fallon together with Mariah Carey? The charismatic late-night TV Personality invited Mariah Carey on his Show to perform together with The Roots, a lo-fi version of All I Want for Christmas is You. Kids. Xyolophone. Recorder. Banjo. Hand Drums. And is that a Hair Pick I see? So absolutely charming! These Fallon Videos are guaranteed to be an American Cultural Institution.
