Protest is new black at Globes
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.
