Is it too early to laugh ? This is the question that had to haunt the comedian Seth Meyers, in charge of facilitating the Golden Globes ceremony while, around the film and television industry in the u.s., the perpetrators are denounced and ostracized.
It is only in the last several years, the Golden Globes are needed such as during relaxed and festive, certainly more prestigious but also more staid Oscar. The Golden Globes, the humor is not only privileged, it is incisive and satirical towards the wildlife of hollywood. From the outset, Meyers set the tone by running : “Good evening ladies and “remaining” gentlemen “.
This was followed by a string of one-liners squeaky desire in which the proverbial elephant in the room — he is called Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Brett Ratner, Dustin Hoffman or Bryan Singer — was duly identified. To each his turn to become the “object” — ridiculous, in the present instance.
The list of guests can be made in addition to account of a desire to give visibility to women activists, in order notably to the feast Tarana Burke, founder in 1997 of the movement “Me Too,” became a #MeToo (here #moiaussi).
Many were the dramas nominated this year, large and small screens alike, dealing with a watermark of the inequities and aggressions that women are often the victims. It is not about to forget the scenes of violence in Big Little Lies.
In Feud, series on the rivalry between the stars aging Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, it was revealed how the studios were feeding themselves the conflict between stars of women for advertising purposes before you “throw” them, unlike their male partners.
The Marvelous Mrs Maisel, for which Rachel Brosnahan has won the Golden Globe in the best actress category ” series – comedy “, puts in scene a single mother who pierces the mid-macho comedy in the New York of the 1950s.
We also think, obviously, dystopia is The The Handmaid”s Tale, voted the best ” series – drama “. For the record, the action is set in a future where women are the property of their bosses, their spouses, of the State.
In the film, The Post, by Steven Spielberg, named one of the best films, Meryl Streep is Kay Graham, a woman who, although the owner of the Washington Post, and battle to make its voice heard in an environment of journalistic male on the background of the Pentagon Papers.
With her character of mother (Frances McDormand) who rattles the authorities so that justice is rendered to his daughter raped and murdered, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is part of the same trend. The film won the Golden Globe for best drama, best screenplay, best actress and best supporting actor.
The laughs are not overshadowed moments felt emotion and reflection. Sacred best actress category ” series – drama “, Elisabeth Moss went for a vibrant tribute to Margaret Atwood, author of the novel the origin of the series the Handmaid”s Tale. All dressed in black at the initiative of the movement Times s Up, like all celebrities, the actress said :
“Margaret Atwood has written : “We [women] weren’t in the stories that were printed, we used to live in the white margins and the spaces between the stories.” Margaret Atwood, this prize is for you and for all the women who, before and after you, have spoken against intolerance and injustice, and who fought for equality and freedom in this world. We no longer live in the white margins, we no longer live in the spaces between the stories : we are in the stories that we print, and we write the stories ourselves. “
In receiving the award for the best supporting actress category for ” a limited series or tv movie “, Laura Dern, who plays in Big Little Lies a mother too terrified to denounce the abuse suffered by his daughter, recalled :
“Many of us were raised to be quiet. It was a culture of silence standardized. “
This year, the Golden Globes chose to honor Oprah Winfrey, a pioneer deserving if it is, by awarding him the prize Cecil B. DeMille. She is the first black woman to receive it.
“I want all the little girls who are watching tonight know that a new day is on the horizon. And when he rises, it will be due to a multitude of beautiful women, several of whom are here in this room with a few men quite phenomenal, which is fighting hard to become the leaders that will lead us towards the day when no one will have to say “me too”, concluded the high priestess of the tv in front of a support sheet.
