NBC hosted the 72nd annual Golden Globe Awards Sunday night. Led by actresses Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association celebrated exceptional film and television achievements at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California.
From the comedic commentary from Fey and Poehler, to the reflective acceptance speeches, the night was one many will remember and cherish.
“In the household in which I was raised, the themes were pretty simple. Work hard, don’t quit, be appreciative, be thankful, be grateful, be respectful. Also don’t whine ever. Don’t complain and always, for crying out loud, keep a sense of humor,” said Michael Keaton after winning Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Comedy for his role in Birdman.
The Paris terror attacks and “Je Suis Charlie” were among the evening’s themes, striking close to home with many of the HFPA members as well as winners and nominees. Many actors and actresses held “Je Suis Charlie” signs on the red carpet.
“Today was an extraordinary day, there were millions of people who marched not just in Paris but around the world, and they were Christians and Jews and Muslims, they were leaders of countries all over the world and they didn’t march in protest,” said George Clooney as he accepted Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award.
Keaton along with Clooney, Steve Carell, Emma Stone and Meryl Streep were all among the names of nominees.
According to the LA Times, “”Boyhood,” which tied “The Imitation Game” with five nominations, clinched three awards — one for drama film, another for director Richard Linklater and a third for supporting actress Patricia Arquette.”
