THE GOLDEN GLOBE AWARD WINNERS PREDICTABLE, WHILE RICKY GERVAIS PLAYS IT SAFE
The Golden Globe Awards may be a more laid back affair, with drinking and a lot of interaction amongst the Hollywood set, but were fairly predictable this year. But more importantly, what happened to Ricky Gervais?
The 69th annual Golden Globe Awards – awarded by the Hollywood Foreign Press – were fairly predictable when it came to announcing winners. The four Best Actor/Actress honours went to George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Jean Dujardin and Michelle Williams.
Everyone seemed rigid and on high alert when host Ricky Gervais hit the stage with beer in hand, but despite a few wise cracks aimed at Johnny Depp and the Awards Show itself, he was much tamer than last year. Can we ever be satisfied? Despite high ratings, Gervais has said this will be his last time hosting the Globes.
Of course, there was the fashion, where some hit the mark and some didn’t. Amongst my favourite was Angelina Jolie, in Atelier Versace, with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Jessica Alba in Gucci.
