Livewire – 75th Annual Golden Globes: Harveywood Celebrates Itself Amid #MeToo Moment

0

The 75th annual Golden Globes kicks off Sunday night at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. Eastern. Late-night host Seth Meyers hosts this year’s festivities live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.

Follow along as Breitbart News provides up-to-the-minute winners, commentary, and analysis from the Big Hollywood team.

Things to watch for tonight:

– Actresses are expected to wear black tonight to protest the ongoing sexual harassment scandal. Many will also be wearing #Time’sUp pins, to raise awareness of the industry’s newly-created legal fund to deal with harassment.

– The Best Picture race is wide open this year. The Shape of Water leads all films with seven nominations, but faces stiff competition in the major categories from Streep-Spielberg-Hanks political drama The Post, Christopher Nolan’s WWII epic Dunkirk, gay romantic drama Call Me By Your Name, and Martin McDonaugh’s Frances McDormand-starrer Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

– Gary Oldman is the frontrunner to take home Best Actor for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour, while McDormand could earn her first Best Actress Globe for her performance in Three Billboards, after five previous nominations. Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird will also likely take home some trophies, with Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf the slight frontrunners in their respective acting categories.

– On the TV side, Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale looks to repeat its success from last year’s Emmys, but goes up against some serious heavyweights in the Best TV Series – Drama category, including The Crown, Stranger Things, Game of Thrones, and This Is Us. Handmaid’s star Elisabeth Moss will win Best Actress. HBO’s Big Little Lies, also a big Emmys winner last year, is a lock to take home some awards. Perhaps the most intriguing category is the Best TV Series – Comedy category, where freshman Amazon series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel could score an upset over Black-ish, Master of None, SMILF, and the rebooted Will & Grace. My money’s on Maisel.

– Oprah Winfrey is set to accept the night’s honorary Cecil B. DeMille award. Last year’s winner Meryl Streep memorably used her acceptance speech to attack then-President-elect Donald Trump, but it’s anyone’s guess what Winfrey might talk about during her speech. Barbra Streisand is rumored to be presenting Winfrey her award.

– Seth Meyers will try to thread the needle in his opening monologue, attempting to keep the show light and funny while also addressing the Harvey Weinstein-sized elephant in the room and keeping up a steady stream of Trump hate.

Latest updates at the top. All times Eastern.

7:07 p.m. – Emma Watson weighs in on Hollywood’s sex harassment scandal: “We’re just scratching the surface of this, which is crazy.”

7:02 p.m. – Early candidate to make tomorrow’s Best Dressed list: Christina Hendricks arrives at the Golden Globes in a part-jumpsuit, part-gown ensemble with velvet, off-the-shoulder detailing.

6:37 p.m. –   Fashion spotlight from J.B.: Actress Alexis Bledel wears a black and white jumpsuit that features vine detailing around her neck.

6:29 p.m. – The Stranger Things kids are awesome. Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin) does his best Chewbacca impression.

6:08 p.m. – Meryl Streep arrives alongside activist Aj-jen Poo.

“I think that people are aware now of a power imbalance, and it’s something that leads to abuse. It’s led to abuse in our own industry, and it’s led to abuse across the domestic workers’ field of work,” Streep told E! host Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet.

“It’s in the military, it’s in Congress. It’s everywhere, and we want to fix that. And we feel sort of emboldened in this particular moment to stand together, in a thick black line.”

6:05 p.m. – Things are getting interesting (and awkward) already. Debra Messing has trashed E! for sexism directly to an E! News reporter working the red carpet.

“I’m wearing black to stand in solidarity with my sisters all over the globe, and I’m here to celebrate the rollout of this incredible initiative Time’s Up. We want diversity, we want intersectional gender parity, and equal pay,” Messing said.

But, she added: “I was so shocked to hear that E! doesn’t believe in paying their female co-hosts the same as their male co-hosts. I miss Catt Sadler. We stand with her.”

“That’s something that could change tomorrow.”

6:00 p.m. – Hollywood’s best and brightest are already out in full force on the Globes red carpet. It looks like most actresses have kept to the all-black dress code as part of the protest against sexual harassment, and both men and women are wearing Time’s Up pins.

Stars who have already arrived include Alison Brie, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Rachel Brosnahan, Milo Venitmiglia, the Stranger Things kids, and dozens more. Stay tuned for more arrival pics, and find more on all the arrivals from Breitbart’s John Binder coming soon.
