Protest is new black at Globes

Houston Chronicle Sunday - - NEWS RECAP -

Last Sun­day night, men were a sideshow at a Golden Globes cer­e­mony that cel­e­brated women. Oprah Win­frey gave a move­ment-defin­ing speech; Natalie Port­man threw shade at the all-male di­rect­ing nom­i­nees — while pre­sent­ing that award. And nearly ev­ery one wore black in sup­port of the Time’s Up move­ment and as a state­ment against sex­ual mis­con­duct in Hol­ly­wood.

The 75th Golden Globe Awards wasn’t busi­ness as usual. Even the night’s two big­gest win­ners, the film “Three Billboards Out­side Eb­bing, Mis­souri” and the lim­ited HBO se­ries “Big Lit­tle Lies,” were no­tably fe­male-fo­cused.

No­tably left empty-handed were Christo­pher Nolan’s “Dunkirk,” Jor­dan Peele’s “Get Out” and Steven Spiel­berg’s “The Post.” The night did lit­tle to il­lu­mi­nate which di­rec­tion the Academy will go.
