Sunday, Jan. 6th, marked the 75th Golden Globes Awards. This years event was hosted by Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg. Throughout the three hour airing many jokes, conversation, and powerful speeches were made by the hosts and celebrities of the night.

Celebrities such as Regina King, commented on equality, making their voices heard all over the world. Sandra Oh mentioned the lack of female directors in the industry while performing the opening dialogue with host Andy Samberg.

With over 20 awards getting handed out in three different categories, motion picture awards, television awards, and retired awards the night was filled with anticipation and reward. However we have the top results.

Best Drama Motion Picture – Bohemian Rhapsody
Best Motion Picture Director – Alfonso Cuaron
Best Animated Motion Picture – Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
Best Television Drama Series – The Americans
Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television – Assassination of Gianni Versace: The American Crime Story

Those were just a few of the honored winners of this past years entertainment, but their acceptance speeches had much more to say. Winner of Best Actor in a drama motion picture, Rami Malek honored the late Freddie Mercury in his speech who he portrayed in the movie Bohemian Rhapsody.

“Thank you to Freddie Mercury for giving me the joy of a lifetime. I love you, you beautiful man. This is for and because of you, gorgeous,” Bohemian Rhapsody actor Rami Malek said.

Another powerful moment made in an acceptance speech was by Lady Gaga who touched on the feeling and experience of being a woman in the music industry.

“As a woman in music it is really hard to be taken seriously as a musician and a songwriter,” nominee Lady Gaga said.

Although one of the most personal moments during the awards was when host Sandra Oh accepted her Best Actress in a TV series globe. Oh spoke in Korean during her speech and the world reacted in a emotional way.

“Sandra Oh simply speaking a few words of Korean while accepting her golden globe is one of the most powerful moments in hollywood history,” tweeted Teen Vogue author Gabe Bergado.

In 2018, many celebrities attending the Golden Globes made a political statement by wearing black in support of the Times Up and #MeToo movements. The color was in solidarity to victims of sexual assault making it one of the most powerful red carpets in history. This year, however, many stars were dressed in cool tones, nudes or black.
