‘La La Land’, ‘The People vs. O.J.’ win big at 2017 Golden Globe Awards

The 74th annual Golden Globe Awards honor some of the best projects and performers from the past year of movies and television. Along with being a boozy and relatively loose affair, the event typically has a few surprises in store for pre-show prognosticators.

With Jimmy Fallon as the host, this year’s ceremony showered honors on Whiplash director Damien Chazelle’s modern musical La La Land, which took home a Golden Globe for each of the seven categories in which it was nominated. Along with being named the year’s best movie (in the comedy or musical category) and awarding trophies to both its stars, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, the film also took home Golden Globes for its director, screenplay, and original score, and original song, City of Stars.

On the dramatic side, Moonlight was named the year’s best drama film, with Manchester by the Sea star Casey Affleck and Elle star Isabelle Huppert named the year’s best dramatic actors. The win for Affleck is particularly notable given the involvement of Amazon Studios in the project, as it was the first Golden Globe Award won for a film produced by Amazon’s movie- and television-making studio.

A few, select television projects dominated the small-screen nominations, with Netflix taking home two Golden Globes for The Crown, which beat HBO’s Game of Thrones and Westworld to be named the year’s best drama series and sent its star Claire Foy home with an additional award for the year’s best actress in a drama series. Amazon Studios also claimed an additional award on the television side, with Goliath star Billy Bob Thornton beating Rami Malek of Mr. Robot and Bob Odenkirk of Better Call Saul for the Golden Globe awarded to the year’s best actor in a drama series.

Also earning multiple Golden Globes for television projects were the two dramatic miniseries The People v. O.J.: American Crime Story and The Night Manager, which took home two and three awards, respectively, on the night. It was a particularly good night for Atlanta creator Donald Glover, who took home the Golden Globe for the year’s best actor in a comedy or musical series, and saw his celebrated new series win the award for the year’s best comedy or musical series — beating Amazon’s Transparent and HBO’s Veep, as well as last year’s winner, Mozart in the Jungle.

The ceremony also honored Meryl Streep, an eight-time Golden Globe winner herself, with the 2017 Cecil B. DeMille Award. Streep offered up one of the show’s memorable moments with an acceptance speech that criticized President-elect Donald Trump’s treatment of the disabled, journalists, people of foreign descent, and artists in various media.
