RED CARPET ARRIVALS – (All photos courtesy of the Hollywood Foreign Press)
It’s time for the Red Carpet Arrivals and the apparent theme for the night in solidarity is the color black, in honor of the #TimesUp movement which is fighting against sexual harassment and sexual assault to encourage equality for all. View the celebrity arrivals as they make their grand entrance for tonight’s festivities.
Seth Meyers is a hilarious host that effortlessly keeps the crowd entertained with real life commentary that had us all talking. As the honoree of the Cecile B. DeMille Award, Oprah Winfrey is sitting in the front of the room with Stedman Graham and Gayle King by her side. Celebrity or not, standing in front of Oprah Winfrey is an honor and almost every Golden Globe winner tonight stood in awe of her majesty. Therefore Oprah received quick shoutouts before award winners gave their acceptance speech.
Meher Tatna, HFPA President, announced two grants for $1M each to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists to continue the support of protecting journalists and global press freedom. Sterling K. Brown wins his first Golden Globe Award and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to his acceptance speech as he thanked THIS IS US creator, Dan Fogelman, for creating a role for a black man. Sterling is honored to play a role that allows him the ability of, “Being seen for who I am and being appreciated for who I am.”
When Oprah Winfrey speaks, you listen. As the first African American woman to receive the Cecile B. DeMille honor, I appreciate how Oprah always focuses our attention on doing good unto others and not allowing us to idolize the phenomenal woman we love. Oprah also gave us a hidden figure history lesson about the life of Recy Taylor. A woman who suffered a brutal attack from six white men as she walked home from church in 1944. Recy died 10 days ago before her 98th birthday and never received the justice of finding the men who did this horrific act. Thankfully Oprah spoke Recy’s name and allowed us all to celebrate her courage and bravery when she exclaimed, “I just hope I just hope that Recy Taylor died knowing that her truth, like the truth of so many other women who were tormented in those years and even now tormented, goes marching on.”
And finally thank you to Barbra Streisand for acknowledging that women directors should be recognized and nominated for their work. This discrepancy is long overdue for an overhaul of gender equality.
Congratulations to all of the winners. View more photos from the ceremony below and enjoy.
