‘Green Book’ Sweeps The Golden Globes 2019

By Cole Delbyck

Hollywood’s biggest party has officially come to a close.

The 76th annual Golden Globes, which honors the best in film and television from 2018, gave awards season a glittery, champagne-fueled launch at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California on Sunday night.


Hosted by Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg, the ceremony was a star-studded affair with actors from the big and small screen ― a distinction that seems increasingly less important given the wattage of newly minted TV stars like Julia Roberts ― gathered to see who will take home the supersized statuettes.

Despite a polarizing critical reception, the Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali-fronted “Green Book” picked up three awards in major categories, including Best Motion Picture and Best Supporting Actor in the Musical or Comedy category. The Queen biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody” was the other big winner of the night, nabbing awards for Best Motion Picture and Best Actor in the Drama category.

In a surprise upset, the romantic musical drama “A Star Is Born” and leads Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga were largely snubbed, scoring only one trophy for Best Original Song. The historic “Crazy Rich Asians,” which drew two nominations in major categories, and “Black Panther,” the first superhero film to be nominated for best drama, were also shut out at the ceremony.

And lest we forget about television, the sumptuously deranged FX limited series “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” picked up the lion’s share of the awards, while “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and newcomer “The Bodyguard” also got some love.
