Fresh off their Golden Globes win for best animated motion picture, the filmmakers behind Sony's "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" may have had their comments about diversity cut short onstage, but they picked right back up backstage in the press room.
Director Peter Ramsey, speaking about the diversity inherent in the story of an Afro-Latino Spider-Man, struggled to jog his memory backstage.
"I'm trying to remember what I was saying because I'm still so stunned that we won," he said. "It was basically just the idea that anyone can have this kind of experience, anyone can share in this myth, be this kind of hero. And the story of Miles Morales was a way to crystallize all those feelings into one character.”
On the Golden Globes red carpet, green proved a popular color not only for celebrities’ couture but also for their lustrous jewels.
“Mom” star Allison Janney arrived at the 76th awards ceremony at the Beverly Hilton in a heraldic thorn link necklace and mughal ring crafted from emeralds, diamonds, rubies, 18-karat gold and platinum by David Webb.
For “Killing Eve” lead Jodie Comer, green teardrop earrings provided a fresh pop of color atop her black frothy dress that combined layers of tulle, paillettes and feathers.
Even after winning a Golden Globe award, Richard Madden can’t escape the rumors that he’s in the running to play James Bond.
Following his win for actor in a TV drama with his performance in “Bodyguard,” Madden was quickly asked (yet again) to address tabloid reports he could be next to take on the big-screen icon: “They are just rumors,” he said.
For now, Madden is seeing his golden statuette as enough of a career confirmation.
Ben Whishaw won the Golden Globe for his supporting role in the limited series “A Very English Scandal.”
The BBC and Amazon drama sees Whishaw portraying Norman Josiffe (later Scott), the former lover who British politician Jeremy Thorpe allegedly tried to have killed.
“I was playing a real person who suffered substantial trauma in what we were fictionalizing,” he recalled backstage after his win on Sunday. “One of the very difficult things was honoring him, and being sensitive to him and trying to capture him in all of his complexity."
The Golden Globes are known for red carpet fashions, serving as an early (if inconsistent) indicator of Oscar voting tendencies and the occasional unexpected outburst from the stage. Like most awards shows, the Globes aren’t exactly known for getting their winners right, at least as far as critical consensus is concerned.
And yet, here we are. Ignored by the Hollywood Foreign Press in the drama series category each of its five prior seasons, FX’s “The Americans” won Sunday night with its first nomination, which it earned for its acclaimed final season.
The overdue recognition may have amounted to a make-up win after years of neglect by the HFPA, but a deserved win is a deserved win, and Twitter fell silent with its usual litany of complaints. It felt a little strange.
Sunday night sure turned out golden for Sandra Oh.
The evening was already a glittering occasion for the actress, who was serving as co-host of the Golden Globes with “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star Andy Samberg. Then she took her hostess with the mostess level up a notch by scoring a trophy for her performance as Eve Polastri, an indefatigable and quirky agent for British intelligence, in BBC America’s “Killing Eve.”
