Simone Garcia Johnson, the 16-year-old daughter of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and ex-wife Dany Garcia, will be the inaugural Golden Globe Ambassador.

In a role formerly known as “Miss Golden Globe,” Johnson follows in the footsteps of Sylvester Stallone’s three daughters, Jamie Foxx’s daughter Corinne Foxx, and other Hollywood offspring like Laura Dern and Dakota Johnson by securing an on-air role in the awards show.

Hollywood Foreign Press Association President Meher Tatna made the announcement Wednesday at the start of a Golden Globes kick-off party at West Hollywood hotspot Catch.

“I’ve been lucky enough to grow up in a household with strong role models and feel so honored to represent the HFPA for its 75th Anniversary,” said Garcia Johnson. “As the newly minted Golden Globe Ambassador, I hope to serve as a role model to young people everywhere and empower them to speak out on issues they are passionate about.”

you’ll never make anyone prouder than you make me. happy birthday, i love you ??’?

A post shared by Simone ??” (@simonegjohnson) on

A Chip Off the Old Rock

Keeping her professional life in the family, Johnson is a model repped by IMG. Her father, the actor-wrestler-potential-2020-presidential-candidate, is a long-time client of sister agency WME, both owned by the newly renamed Endeavor.

While her dad is routinely heralded as one of the kings of social media, Johnson’s in the top 1 perent herself. Socially liberal, she speaks loudly and clearly to her 172,000 Instagram followers on hot topics.

She blasted Star magazine for its treatment of a celebrity’s weight gain, showed support for a Georgia Tech cheerleader taking a knee during the national anthem, and called out Donald Trump’s incitement of violence from his supporters. Her most recent post is a picture of a t-shirt (presumably worn by her) saying, “If fertilized eggs are ‘people’ and refugees aren’t, we have a problem.”

She is also a normal 16-year-old wrestling fan, who rocked a mean Freddy Krueger costume for Halloween. By 2021, she could be First Daughter.

“Shut Your Mouth and Know Your Role”

Unlike her famous dad’s catchphrase, this is exactly what the HFPA does not want Johnson to do.

“As we look forward to the 75th anniversary of the Golden Globe Awards, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association members decided to expand this role to embody the HFPA’s philanthropic efforts year round,” said Tatna.

This dovetails with the HFPA’s increasing emphasis on 12-month visibility throughout the industry.

In recent years, the HFPA has amplified its multi-million dollar donations via a glitzy awards night banquet in August that is amongst the first smoke signals of the awards season to come. This past September on Emmys weekend, they dedicated an HFPA wing at Cal State Northridge. At major film festivals, they host social events at Cannes, TIFF, and London. TV heavyweights like Shonda Rimes, Ryan Murphy, J.J. Abrams, and David E. Kelley recently convened with the HFPA for a panel at the Paley Center. Tonight’s bash at Catch with topline partners like Fiji Water and InStyle is another annual peak.

By spreading out the HFPA’s influence beyond December and January, they are mirroring the TV Academy and BAFTA LA with year-round philanthropic, industry, and awards tentpoles.

Johnson should figure in to these non-televised initiatives as well.

Further, in post-Harvey Hollywood, the title rebrand forecloses the plural “Miss Golden Globes” moniker that invited double entendres and always landed like an icky sub-varsity beauty pageant superlative.

The Golden Globes will air live coast-to-coast on NBC on Sunday, Jan. 7, 2017 from 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT. Nominees will be revealed on Dec. 11.

Golden Globes’ 11 Most Ludicrous Comedy or Musical Picks, From ‘The Martian’ to ‘Get Out’ (Photos) https://www.thewrap.com/golden-globes-11-most-ludicrous-comedy-or-musical-picks-from-the-martian-to-get-out-photos/ https://www.thewrap.com/golden-globes-11-most-ludicrous-comedy-or-musical-picks-from-the-martian-to-get-out-photos/#respond Wed, 15 Nov 2017 19:58:15 +0000 Brian Welk https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1740858 “Get Out” is being submitted to the Golden Globes in the “Musical or Comedy” category for Best Picture. It’s funny in that queasy, racially tense and awkward way, but make no mistake, it’s a horror movie. But this isn’t the only time that a movie strategically played category fraud to get a nomination. Here are 10 other instances that raise an eyebrow:

“The Tourist” (2010)

How can we invite Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp to the awards ceremony? Let’s nominate this romantic, action caper with a 20 percent on Rotten Tomatoes and stick it in the Musical or Comedy category!

“The Martian” (2015)

“In your face, Neil Armstrong!” That line of dialogue is just about all it takes to be considered a comedy it seems. And it won!

“My Week With Marilyn” (2011)

Maybe someone will make a movie worthy of a Golden Globe that celebrates Marilyn Monroe’s musical and comedic achievements. But this drama about Monroe’s romantic fling in London isn’t it.

“Gosford Park” (2001)

Robert Altman’s dialogue is known for its clever banter and wordplay, but “Gosford Park” is as much a comedy as “M.A.S.H.” is a war movie.

“Nicholas Nickleby” (2002)

You could be forgiven if your first question was not, “why is this considered a musical or comedy” and instead, “What is this movie?” But it’s only a comedy in the way that Charles Dickens adaptations can be light and witty before getting serious.

“Vicky Christina Barcelona” (2008)

The Globes would eventually figure out with “Blue Valentine” that there are some times when Woody Allen just prefers to not be funny, so why not this time?

“Fargo” (1996)

File this under just being impossible to pin down a genre for any Coen Brothers movie. Probably the real joke is that “Fargo” lost to “Evita.”

“Ghost” (1990)

We’ve gotten a lot of mileage out of parodies of that pottery scene, but just because Whoopi Goldberg is in “Ghost” doesn’t make it a comedy.

“The Three Musketeers” (1974)

There are a lot of examples of sumptuous, overly colorful period pieces and adventures that flirt with the musical tag, but the funniest thing about the 1973 “Three Musketeers” is that Charlton Heston would play a villainous Cardinal.

“RED” (2010)

We’d find some way to invite Helen Mirren to the awards ceremony if we could too.

Fans Outraged at ‘Get Out’ Golden Globes Comedy Category, Jordan Peele Jokes: It’s a ‘Documentary’ https://www.thewrap.com/get-out-comedy-golden-globes-2018-fan-reactions/ https://www.thewrap.com/get-out-comedy-golden-globes-2018-fan-reactions/#respond Wed, 15 Nov 2017 18:11:25 +0000 Jennifer Maas https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1740795 “Get Out” is apparently a comedy. Well, it will be at the 2018 Golden Globes, at least.

Jordan Peele’s horror-satire will compete as a comedy/musical at the upcoming Golden Globe Awards, TheWrap has learned. And while chatter within the industry has put it up as a likely contender to sweep its categories no matter where it was placed, some fans aren’t happy with the choice.

While several saw the decision as offensive and even racist, others said that the dark comedy in the film was very apparent.

And, let’s be clear here, it was submitted as a comedy. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association won’t just be voting for it in that category for kicks. It’s also important to consider that the only other alternative at the Globes would be to call it a drama — and the 2017 sleeper hit doesn’t quite seem to fit that descriptor either.

Among the voices to chime in about “Get Out”s placement on Twitter was Peele himself, who made a joke about the comedy news.

“‘Get Out’ is a documentary,” Peele tweeted, clearly poking fun at the outrage.

This submission could really be a good thing for the runaway box office hit, which could have a better shot at snagging an award for its lead, Daniel Kaluuya. The actor would most likely face contenders like Hugh Jackman (“The Greatest Showman”), Kumail Nanjiani (“The Big Sick”), James Franco (“The Disaster Artist”), Matt Damon (“Downsizing”), and Steve Carell (“Battle of the Sexes”).

The 75th Golden Globe Awards nominations will be announced on Monday, Dec. 11. The show will be broadcast on Sunday, Jan. 7 at 8:00 p.m. ET on NBC.

Entertainment Weekly was the first to report the news of “Get Out”s submission as a comedy.

See reactions from Twitter to the decision to put “Get Out” in the comedy category below.

Golden Globes Sting! Tickets Scalped for $39,000, Member Banned (Exclusive) https://www.thewrap.com/golden-globes-sting-tickets-scalped-39000-member-banned-exclusive/ https://www.thewrap.com/golden-globes-sting-tickets-scalped-39000-member-banned-exclusive/#respond Sun, 16 Apr 2017 18:54:33 +0000 Steve Pond https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1604472 Two Golden Globes tickets for the 2017 awards were scalped for $39,000, leading to the banning of Hollywood Foreign Press Association member Munawar Hosain for two years, multiple individuals told TheWrap.

Hosain was banned from the Globes for two years at a membership meeting on Friday, according to two members who were present. An investigation into Hosain followed a sting operation in January when a security agent working for the HFPA was able to buy Hosain’s Globes tickets for $39,000 from the ticketing agency VIP Concierge.

Reached by TheWrap, HFPA President Lorenzo Soria declined to comment on the matter. Hosain did not respond to attempts to reach him on Facebook. A representative for VIP Concierge reached by TheWrap said they could not comment.

One HFPA insider told TheWrap that VIP Concierge sells tickets to high-profile events including those that are nominally not for sale. The site appears to offer VIP experiences to events from movie premieres to the Tony awards and even Oscar parties in 2018.

One member present at the meeting told TheWrap that Hosain, who is from Bangladesh and has represented that country as well as Germany, Japan, the UK, Poland, and Denmark in the HFPA, denied that he had sold the tickets. Instead, he said, he gave them to a friend in Orange County. He also produced a letter from the friend, who claimed he received the tickets from Hosain, but resold them without Hosain’s permission.

According to the accounts given to TheWrap, members at the Friday meeting did not believe Hosain, who has served as an HFPA officer in the past but also has a history of facing grievances within the organization.

Hosain is not suspended from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association itself, nor is he prohibited from attending the press conferences and junkets that are a major perk of membership — though perhaps not as major a perk as the Golden Globes tickets and party passes that are guaranteed to every one of the 90-odd members who make up the HFPA. But he is banned from the HFPA’s marquee event until 2020.

In recent years, the HFPA has worked harder to address the ethical lapses of its members. Other recent disciplinary actions include suspending a Ukranian member who was accused of trying to extort Globes tickets from a prospective member, and negotiating the six-month leave of former president Philip Berk for six months after he published a book that cast aspersions on the organization, NBC and assorted stars.

Golden Globes Reveal Timeline for Earliest-Ever Ceremony https://www.thewrap.com/golden-globes-reveal-timeline-for-earliest-ever-ceremony/ https://www.thewrap.com/golden-globes-reveal-timeline-for-earliest-ever-ceremony/#respond Wed, 29 Mar 2017 15:00:06 +0000 Steve Pond https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1574097 Voting for the 2018 Golden Globes will begin on November 24, 2017, with nominations announced on December 11 and the show taking place on Sunday, January 7, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced on Wednesday.

The HFPA had already announced the date of the Golden Globes show, which will be the earliest the show has taken place in its 75-year history. But Wednesday’s announcement added the entire timeline leading up to the show, from the July 10 creation of a website on which entries can be made through the submission deadlines and voting dates.

Next year’s Academy Awards has been pushed from its typical late-February slot to March 4 to avoid conflict with the Winter Olympics, creating a larger-than-usual gap between the two shows.

The Globes rundown:

Monday, July 10, 2017: Submission website for 2018 motion picture and television entries opens

Tuesday, October 31: Deadline for submission of motion picture and television entry forms

Friday, November 24: Deadline for nomination ballots to be mailed to all HFPA members by Ernst & Young

Monday, December 4: Final screening date for motion pictures

Wednesday, December 6: Final date for motion picture press conferences

Thursday, December 7, 8:00 p.m.: Deadline for receipt of nomination ballots by Ernst & Young

Monday, December 11, 5:00 a.m.: Announcement of nominations for the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards

Monday, December 18: Final ballots mailed to all HFPA members

Wednesday, January 3, 2018, 5:00 p.m.: Deadline for receipt of final ballots by Ernst & Young

Sunday, January 7: Presentation of the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards

The ceremony will air on NBC live coast-to-coast. The awards are viewed in more than 236 countries worldwide and are one of the few to include both best motion picture and television achievements.

This year’s big Golden Globe winners included “Moonlight” for Best Drama Motion Picture, Damien Chazelle for Best Director, Viola Davis for Best Supporting Actress and “La La Land” for Best Musical or Comedy Motion Picture.

The 2017 Golden Globes took place on Jan. 8 at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles. During the ceremony, Meryl Streep stole the show when she took President Donald Trump to task.

“It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter, someone he outranked in privilege, power, and the capacity to fight back,” Streep said, referring to an incident with Trump on the campaign trail. “It kind of broke my heart when I saw it. I still can’t get it out of my head because it wasn’t in a movie. It was real life.”

Trump responded that he was “not surprised” that “liberal movie people” would complain about him and referred to Streep in particular as a “Hillary lover.”

NBC’s 2017 Golden Globes hauled in 20 million total viewers, according to Nielsen. That’s 1.5 million more than 2016, or up 8 percent year over year.

That Time Jonah Hill Was Approached by Real-Life Arms Dealers (Exclusive Video) https://www.thewrap.com/war-dogs-jonah-hill-arms-dealers-gun-runners-movie/ https://www.thewrap.com/war-dogs-jonah-hill-arms-dealers-gun-runners-movie/#respond Thu, 12 Jan 2017 21:38:46 +0000 Beatrice Verhoeven https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1439113

Jonah Hill‘s “War Dogs” film acted as a dog whistle to a couple of “real-life gun runners,” the actor told TheWrap.

The film follows two arms dealers, Efraim Diveroli (Hill) and David Packouz (Miles Teller) who receive a U.S. Army contract to supply munitions to the Afghan National Army worth an estimated $300 million.

“I live in New York and I was in a restaurant and two guys came up to me and said, ‘hey we’re South African arms dealers and we’re really excited to see the movie,” Hill recalled during a recent interview with TheWrap’s Stuart Brazell. “It looks like a good representation of our lives.’ I was like, ‘OK, great!” Hill explained about the time he met “real-life gun-runners.”

But, he admitted, the chance encounter put him on guard.

“That was a scenario… where I was being sensitive to them and also kind of nervous at the same time. It puts you in an interesting position.”

Hill also admitted he felt out of his element while he was making the film, but that it was actually good for his performance because he played someone who had no prior experience in dealing arms overseas. “That’s what these kids were doing. They were like, ‘Where are we? What’s going on?’ It kind of puts you in the moment a little more than you if you were shooting on a sound stage in L.A.”

The actor was nominated for a Golden Globe this year for his role in “War Dogs,” but lost out to Ryan Gosling, who won for “La La Land.”

Hill went on to praise his co-star Miles Teller and revealed why he had a personal stake in making the movie.

“We stand proudly behind our choice, and we applaud your 40 years of captivating work. You’re a class act, in and out of character,” Soria told the Cecil B. DeMille Award recipient in the email obtained by TheWrap.

Streep referenced President-Elect Donald Trump in her now-historic speech without even mentioning his name — prompting praise from Hollywood and criticism from conservatives.

“Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence incites violence. And when the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose,” Streep said in the live, nationally-televised acceptance of the honorary award.

The speech sparked a national conversation that has included MMA fighters, Hollywood cheerleaders, critiques of Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn’s sulk faces, and tweets from the president-elect himself.

Soria, the man whose organization gave Streep the stage, reached out to the star directly on Tuesday.

Read his full note below.

Dear Meryl,

Congratulations once again on being the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Cecil B. DeMille Award recipient. We stand proudly behind our choice, and we applaud your 40 years of captivating work. You’re a class act, in and out of character.

 As an organization of journalists, the HFPA stands by your defense of free expression and we reject any calls for censorship.

 We thank you for your unwavering support for the arts.

 With gratitude and respect,

 Lorenzo Soria

President

Hollywood Foreign Press Association

Stephen Colbert Delivers the ‘Hidden Fences’ Movie Trailer We Need (Video) https://www.thewrap.com/hidden-fences-trailer-jenna-bush-michael-keaton/ https://www.thewrap.com/hidden-fences-trailer-jenna-bush-michael-keaton/#respond Tue, 10 Jan 2017 15:08:43 +0000 Tony Maglio https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1433155

Stephen Colbert has finally given us the “Hidden Fences” trailer that the internet’s been waiting for.

“The Late Show” mashed up scenes from “Fences” and “Hidden Figures” — two films with predominantly African-American casts and storylines — to form one mega-movie. It looks like a flick Jenna Bush and Michael Keaton could really get behind.

“Based on the true story about people who think all movies about black people are the same movie,” a voiceover reads.

Both Bush and Keaton made the “Hidden Fences” snafu at Sunday’s Golden Globes. Each has since apologized — sort of, in the “Birdman” star’s case.

The faux “Hidden Fences” stars black actors, black actresses and Kevin Costner. Oh, also, one very brave section of white picket.

“If movies starring black people confuse you, then this is the film you’ve got to see,” Colbert’s cold open concludes. Watch the video above.

TheBlaze personality Tomi Lahren didn’t hold back in her criticism of both the Oscar-winning actress and the famous peers in front of whom she spoke on Sunday night at the Beverly Hilton International ballroom.

“Last night, Meryl Streep stood in front of a theater of rich Hollywood liberals to prove how out of touch Hollywood is with the rest of the country,” Lahren said in a video posted on her Facebook page Monday night.

“She also validated our reason for voting for Donald Trump, and reminded us how important the Electoral College really is,” she continued.

“Without the Electoral College, people like Meryl Streep and the Hollywood elite would have a stranglehold on the rest of the country. You know, the football- and MMA-loving rest of the country.”

Lahren went on to refer to the Globes guests and nominees as an “overrated collection of liberals gathered in a room to honor themselves,” and then reviewed the finer point’s Streep’s speech.

First she reminded us that Hollywood stars are “just average folks … who wear millions of dollars of jewels and designer gowns to walk on a red carpet for 20 minutes, meanwhile pretending to care about so-called income equality and the working class,” Lahren said.

After pointing out that many movie stars are foreigners, “then Meryl went left, way left by insinuating our President-elect Donald Trump would kick them all out … are you sure? The folks he wants to kick out are illegals with criminal records.

“Though I am sure some would like to return a few of these Hollywood entertainers to where they came from, that is not the agenda of the Trump administration,” the 24-year-old host said.

Lahren went on to stress how Streep was on “her high horse” when talking about the arts and creating community. “Hey, Meryl, we happen to like football and MMA — go Cowboys,” she said. “Without us, the football and MMA deplorables you look down on, you would have no one watching your ‘arts.'”

The right-wing personality then disagreed with Streep’s message that “violence begets violence,” blaming rap music for inner city crime and slammed her emphasis on the importance of the truth.

“Safeguarding the truth … is that the same truth as the 33,000 emails Hillary deleted?” Lahren asked.

“I just wonder what Donald Trump will do without the support of the Hollywood elite,” she marveled sarcastically. “Oh, I know — he will make America great again.”

Watch the video below, and read Lahren’s equally harsh tweets about Streep from Sunday night.

Jonah Hill Talks Golden Globes, Emma Stone and ‘Moonlight’ (Exclusive Video) https://www.thewrap.com/jonah-hill-golden-globes-emma-stone-moonlight/ https://www.thewrap.com/jonah-hill-golden-globes-emma-stone-moonlight/#respond Tue, 10 Jan 2017 02:26:41 +0000 Thom Geier https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1432831

Jonah Hill, a surprise Best Actor nominee for “War Dogs” at Sunday night’s Golden Globes Awards, could not have been more excited about some of the night’s big winners — especially “La La Land” star Emma Stone’s victory as Best Actress – Comedy or Musical.

“That was really cool,” Hill told TheWrap’s Stuart Brazell of his co-star on the upcoming Netflix series “Maniac.” “I was in the bathroom and then I heard her name called and I ran out and stood in the back and watched her speak and it was really special.”

Though Hill himself lost in the Best Actor – Comedy or Musical category to Stone’s “La La Land” co-star Ryan Gosling, he welcomed the chance to reconnect with some of his Hollywood buddies — and to introduce himself to others whose work he admires.

“I got to meet Barry Jenkins last night,” Hill said of the writer-director of Best Drama winner “Moonlight.” “It was fun to, like, see him so happy. That movie is so moving and incredible.”

The actor also sang the praises of director Mike Mills’ “20th Century Women.”

“The whole movie is phenomenal,” he said. “I think Mike Mills is a genius and one of the most emotionally complex filmmakers around.”

Tom Hiddleston Apologizes for ‘Inelegantly Expressed’ Golden Globes Speech https://www.thewrap.com/tom-hiddleston-apologizes-for-golden-globes-speech/ https://www.thewrap.com/tom-hiddleston-apologizes-for-golden-globes-speech/#respond Tue, 10 Jan 2017 00:35:18 +0000 Beatrice Verhoeven https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1432681 Tom Hiddleston has apologized for his “inelegantly expressed” Golden Globes speech from Sunday night, attributing it to his nerves.

“I completely agree that my speech at the Golden Globes last night was inelegantly expressed,” he wrote in a Facebook post on Monday. “In truth, I was very nervous, and my words just came out wrong. Sincerely, my only intention was to salute the incredible bravery and courage of the men and women who work so tirelessly for UNICEF UK, Doctors Without Borders/ Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), and World Food Programme, and the children of South Sudan, who continue to find hope and joy in the most difficult conditions. I apologise that my nerves got the better of me.”

After accepting the award for Best Actor in a Limited Series of Motion Picture or TV for his role in “The Night Manager” on Sunday night, the British actor talked about an interaction he had while visiting Africa.

“One night we were having a bite to eat at the canteen, where we were staying, and a group of young men and women tottered over to the table, and we were all having what they call a ‘dirty beer’ in humanitarian language,” he said on stage. “They were a group of Médecins Sans Frontières doctors and nurses. And they wanted to say hello because during the shelling the previous month, they had binge-watched ‘The Night Manager.'”

He continued, “And the idea that I could provide ― or that we could provide ― some relief and entertainment for the people who worked for UNICEF … who are fixing the world in the places where it is broken, made me immensely proud.”

Many took to Twitter to bash the speech, with some calling it “self indulgent wankery” and “cringeworthy.”

However, some people praised Hiddleston’s speech, writing “Tom Hiddleston‘s speech was so graceful, what a way to use that platform for something good” and stating that the actor doesn’t owe anyone an apology for the speech.

See Hiddleston’s apology below.

Meryl Streep’s Golden Globes Speech Sparks Donations Surge for Press Freedom Group https://www.thewrap.com/meryl-streeps-golden-globes-speech-sparks-donations-surge-press-freedom-group/ https://www.thewrap.com/meryl-streeps-golden-globes-speech-sparks-donations-surge-press-freedom-group/#respond Mon, 09 Jan 2017 23:24:07 +0000 Matt Pressberg https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1432414 Meryl Streep had the most memorable — and consequential — speech of the night at Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards show.

The Oscar winner received the Cecil B. DeMille career achievement award, but rather than recite tales from her illustrious career, Streep took aim at President-elect Donald Trump.

She vociferously defended the role of a watchdog media, naming the Committee to Protect Journalists outright as an organization she supports and urges others to also back.

The mention of the journalism advocacy group in Streep’s speech sparked a surge of donations to the organization. It also came as a complete surprise to CPJ leaders.

Streep called out an incident in which Trump appeared to mock a disabled reporter, saying it broke her heart and “when the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose.” And toward the end of her speech, she issued a call to action to defend members of the media under a president who appears to have little respect for the institution.

“I only ask the famously well-heeled Hollywood Foreign Press and all of us in our community to join me in supporting the Committee to Protect Journalists, because we’re gonna need them going forward, and they’ll need us to help them safeguard the truth,” Streep said.

Streep’s clarion call went out to the Globes’ estimated 20 million viewers, and hundreds responded with immediate action.

Courtney Radsch, the CPJ’s advocacy director, told TIME the organization received 700 donations on Sunday night alone, compared with the usual five. That’s a 140 percent jump.

The organization confirmed to TheWrap that it has received 1,175 donations since Streep’s speech, totaling a little more than $90,000.

“It’s really an exciting opportunity to talk to a whole new audience,” Radsch told TheWrap. “People who may have never heard of the Committee to Protect Journalists.”

And she’s hoping the organization can ride the current momentum.

“Our hope is to turn this into more sustained engagement,” she said. “There was such an outpouring of support.”

Having the support of one of Hollywood’s icons certainly helps.

But there’s another group of folks that are as miffed at Lady Meryl as Sean Hannity and Tomi Lahren are… though for much different reasons.

While extolling the importance of the arts and multiculturalism in American society, Streep took a drive-by shot at two very popular sports: “Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners. And if we kick them all out, you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts.”

The comment got a strong reaction from the MMA community, who are used to attacks against their sport dating back to Sen. John McCain’s infamous description of it as “human cockfighting” during the early years of the UFC.

When asked by a TMZ cameraman about his thoughts on Streep’s comments, UFC president Dana White called them “stupid” and “uneducated” and said that Streep was “an uppity 80-year-old lady.” Streep is 67.

MMA president Scott Coker was a bit more diplomatic in his response, tweeting out a letter inviting Streep to his promotion’s event at The Forum on Jan. 21, which features a match between former UFC fighters Chael Sonnen and Tito Ortiz.

But for some fighters, Streep’s speech didn’t faze them in the least. Take the response from former fighter Rosi Sexton.

That’s 1.5 million more than 2016, or up 8 percent year over year. Nice job, Jimmy Fallon.

We’ll save you the math: last year, the Ricky Gervais-hosted awards show brought in 18.5 million. In 2015, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler attracted 19.3 million.

The 2016 Gervais version landed a 5.5 rating in the key 18-49 demographic, which was down 5 percent from the Fey-Poehler double effort. Fallon’s turn scored a 5.6 rating, 2 percent better than last night.

Read the rest of broadcast primetime’s TV ratings here. And click this link for the earlier household ratings for the 74th Golden Globes.

The 2017 Globes mark just the third since 2004 to hit the impressive 20-million mark. Of course, the only thing any of us will remember from the event is “La La Land’s” sheer domination. That and the fact that Barb from “Stranger Things” is alive!

Major broadcast awards shows growing their audience is not a very common thing these days. The most-recent Oscars and CMAs each dropped 8 percent in total viewers, the Emmys were down 4 percent, and the Grammys slipped 1 percent. Plus, the People’s Choice Awards plummeted 30 percent, the ESPYs were down 28 percent, the AMAs slid 26 percent and the BBMAs declined 13 percent.

“The View” cohosts had some heated rhetorical battle over Meryl Streep‘s Golden Globes speech and Donald Trump’s subsequent reaction to it during an on-air segment on Monday.

“She made me turn it off, if I’m being honest.” Jedediah Bila said of the effect Streep’s speech had on her. “Not because I don’t respect her right to an opinion, not because — I think she’s a phenomenally talented actress. But when I turn on an awards show, I don’t want to be lectured about politics.”

Bila continued, “There are people out there who love Meryl Streep and love her acting, but don’t want to be made to feel they’re being marginalized for their politics in a moment that’s not about politics.”

That’s when Joy Behar brought up Trump’s tweet in which he called the award-winning actress “overrated.”

“He’s such a baby. Of course, she’s no Scott Baio, I’ll admit that,” Behar said. “He is supposed to be the president of the free world. He’s not there to [do] tit-for-tat over every little slight that goes through his thin skin. That is not his job.”

Bila agreed. Then cohost Sunny Hostin spoke up to argue against Bila’s original remarks, saying that an awards show is a great platform to discuss issues like politics.

“People look up to actors. They look up to athletes. They [are role models],” she said. “And that was such an incredible platform. And what she was speaking out against, or in support of, was freedom of the press, not making fun of disabled people, [but also] supporting arts in our country. That message was really significant to me.”

While accepting the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes on Sunday night, Streep commented on the current political climate and indirectly spoke about the president-elect.

“Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence incites violence. And when the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose,” Streep said as part of her indictment of Trump, which you can view in full here.

In “The View’s” segment, Behar wanted to continue talking about Trump.

“People don’t like it when actors speak about politics. However, this country just elected a celebrity. We just elected a celebrity,” she said. “So maybe he should keep quiet.”

Moderator Whoopi Goldberg then read a tweet by Meghan McCain in which she wrote, “This Meryl Streep speech is why Trump won. And if people in Hollywood don’t start recognizing why and how – you will help him get re-elected.”

“Let me just put this out there: Stop using Hollywood as this bad word.” Goldberg said, which prompted a back-and-forth between her and Bila and the other panelists about whether Trump did actually mock a disabled reporter — something Streep addressed in her acceptance speech.

Hostin then asked, “Why did you turn off the television, Jed?” to which Bila responded, “I turned off the television because I’m tired of hearing political commentary on awards shows. Take a look at social media. Talk to people in middle America. Talk to people who feel Hollywood is completely out of touch with them.”

And once again, Goldberg said, “Do I need to explain Hollywood to you again?”

DeMille Lifetime Achievement award; a speech that was leveled directly at President-Elect Donald Trump. While her words rankled Tucker Carlson and other prominent conservative media figures, it certainly struck a chord with the actress’ peers in Hollywood.

“When the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose,” said Streep in reference to Donald Trump’s mocking of a disabled reporter during a presidential campaign. “It kind of broke my heart when I saw it, and I still can’t get it out my head because it wasn’t in a movie; it was in real life. That instinct to humiliate when it’s modeled by someone in a public platform, it filters down into everyone’s life because it gives permission for others to do the same.”

The response from the attendees at the Beverly Hilton and Hollywood at large was fast and effusive.

Streep based her speech off the title of the Golden Globes organizers, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. She took time to defend Hollywood, foreigners, and the press in an election she saw as hostile to all three. She called on “the principled press to hold power to account, to call them on the carpet for every outrage,” something that did not go unnoticed by journalists and press organizations.

Of course, many of Streep’s supporters were also expecting a reaction from Trump. When the President-elect called Streep “overrated,” they were quick to respond.

The Green Bay Packers’ win over the New York Giants ran enough into primetime to take the whole evening on average.

Read the household TV ratings for Sunday night’s awards show here. Those earlier metered-market numbers are actually more accurate for the Golden Globes than these fast national ones, which are not timezone adjusted. Final figures will be out later today.

Fox was first in ratings with a 5.3 rating/16 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 15.7 million, according to preliminary numbers. The game’s conclusion at 7 p.m. scored an 11.4/34 and 36.5 million viewers. The NFL postgame show at 7:30 earned a 10.1/30 and 32.1 million viewers. “The Simpsons” at 8 p.m. posted a 4.9/14 and 12.7 million viewers. At 8:30, “Son of Zorn” had a 2.3/7 and 5.3 million viewers. “Family Guy” at 9 received a 1.8/5 and 4.1 million viewers. At 9:30, Bob’s Burgers closed Fox’s prime to a 1.5/5 and 3.4 million viewers.

NBC was second in ratings with a 4.1/13 and in viewers with 15 million. The Globes red carpet at 7 p.m. landed a 2.2/7 and 9.8 million viewers. The awards show itself pulled up the network’s average through 11 p.m.

CBS was third in ratings with a 1.0/3 and in viewers with 8.2 million. At 7, “60 Minutes” had a 1.0/3 and 8.2 million viewers. “NCIS: Los Angeles” at 8 got a 1.3/4 and 10.4 million viewers. At 9, “Madam Secretary” received a 0.9/3 and 8.9 million viewers. “Elementary” at 10 finished the night with a 0.7/2 and 5.2 million viewers.

ABC was fourth in ratings with a 0.8/3 and in viewers with 4 million. “America’s Funniest Home Videos” at 7 had a 0.8/3 and 4.6 million viewers. At 8, “To Tell the Truth” got a 1.0/3 and 4.6 million viewers. A second hour at 9 received a 1.0/3 and 4.3 million viewers. At 10, “Conviction” managed a 0.5/2 and 2.7 million viewers.

Twitter doesn’t think that Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn enjoyed Meryl Streep‘s anti-Donald Trump speech delivered at the Golden Globes Sunday night, posting various comments about the visible reaction from the not-so-liberal actors.

“Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence incites violence. And when the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose,” Streep said as part of her indictment of Trump, which you can view in full here.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson called Streep’s speech “the least courageous thing you can do,” because she was simply saying what the room full of “rich Hollywood liberals” want to hear. Carlson must have missed the reactions of Gibson and Vaughn.

Representatives for Gibson and Vaughn did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.

Trump also took to Twitter on Monday morning to rip Meryl Streep as an “over-rated” actress hours after she bashed him. Perhaps the president-elect will praise Gibson and Vaughn’s work in the near future on the social media platform.

While many viewers hailed Streep’s speech, fans quickly took to Twitter to point out that Gibson and Vaughn didn’t look too thrilled. Check out some of the reactions:

Jenna Bush Tears Up as She Apologizes for ‘Hidden Fences’ Slip-Up (Video) https://www.thewrap.com/jenna-bush-apologizes-for-hidden-fences-slip-up-at-golden-globes/ https://www.thewrap.com/jenna-bush-apologizes-for-hidden-fences-slip-up-at-golden-globes/#respond Mon, 09 Jan 2017 16:41:58 +0000 Jeremy Fuster https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1431370 Jenna Bush Hager became a bit emotional as she apologized during NBC’s “Today” on Monday for her verbal snafu from the Golden Globes red carpet that went viral.

The contributing correspondent accidentally combined the names of two nominated films, “Hidden Figures” and “Fences,” during an interview with “Hidden Figures” producer and songwriter Pharrell Williams.

“So you’re nominated for Hidden Fences,” Bush Hager said during the interview on Sunday. The flub exploded on Twitter and became a running joke during the awards ceremony after the same “Hidden Fences” flub was repeated by Michael Keaton.

“When I was interviewing the incomparable Pharrell, who I adore, I accidentally — in the electricity of the red carpet, which I’ve never done one before — called ‘Hidden Figures’ ‘Hidden Fences,'” Bush Hager said on “Today.” ” I have seen both movies, thought they were both brilliant. I’ve interviewed casts for both of the movies and if I offended people I am deeply sorry,” added the “Today” correspondent, also the daughter of former President George W. Bush.

“It was a mistake, because ya’ll know I’m not perfect, I am authentic, but a human. And what I didn’t want to do is make anyone lesser than who they are. I apologize to both the cast, to Pharrell but it was a mistake and I hope we can move on,” she added.

“Today” host Al Roker, who co-hosted the red carpet special with Bush Hager, defended his colleague by criticizing the culture of social media.

“Honest mistakes happen in live television and this culture of Twitter and waiting to pounce and get on people, it’s got to stop,” Roker said. “It’s got to stop somewhere because it’s pretty ridiculous.”

“Hidden Figures,” which was released this past Friday, stars Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monae as a trio of black NASA mathematicians who were key to the success of John Glenn’s historic orbit of the Earth in 1962.

“Fences,” which earned Viola Davis a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama on Sunday night, stars Denzel Washington, who also directed the adaptation of August Wilson’s play about a retired Negro League pitcher who struggles with his past and his relationship with his family.

At Golden Globes Parties, Meryl Streep’s Anti-Trump Speech Fuels Debate https://www.thewrap.com/at-golden-globes-parties-meryl-streeps-anti-trump-speech-fuels-debate/ https://www.thewrap.com/at-golden-globes-parties-meryl-streeps-anti-trump-speech-fuels-debate/#respond Mon, 09 Jan 2017 16:32:02 +0000 Sharon Waxman https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1431367 In the dark recesses of the HBO post-Golden Globes party, a debate raged over whether it was appropriate for Meryl Streep to denounce Donald Trump during her acceptance speech on the telecast.

Opinions were sharply divided.

On one side, a prominent actress defended Streep’s right to express herself. On the other, a prominent actor said he thought Streep was just opening herself up to criticism and why do it?

A studio chief joining the conversation agreed with him, wondering aloud if calling out Trump played into the hands of his supporters, who already accuse Hollywood of being out of touch.

“People don’t want to hear from Hollywood right now,” said a leading publicist, evoking cries of protest from the actress who insisted that what the country needs most is for everyone to listen to one another.

What Streep did — criticizing the president-elect on an awards-show stage — is in a long tradition of actors using their moment in the national spotlight to focus on an unrelated issue. Michael Moore has done it many times, and Marlon Brando famously sent a Native American surrogate to make his point instead of doing it himself.

But it’s always risky. And in the current climate, Hollywood figures are understandably wary of the often vicious backlash that results from offering even a carefully woven political statement. Especially when Trump himself responded to Streep’s speech overnight by dismissing her as an “one of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood” and a “Hillary flunky.”

When is the right time to raise a voice again, and in what forum?

It’s not hard to find people in Hollywood eager to avoid provoking the pro-Trump mob. Celebrities feel burned by the election and bruised by the nasty invective in its aftermath. Many of those who stumped heavily for Hillary Clinton have, not surprisingly, been silent in the wake of the election.

So Streep may have opened the door. “Of course it’s appropriate for her to speak out at the Globes” about Trump, said Russell Simmons, the music producer, entrepreneur and political activist, who was there with Renée Elise Goldsberry of “Hamilton” fame.

Speaking of those who expressed fear, Simmons said, “What Meryl said will give them courage.”

Plenty of people said they admired Streep’s bravery, and I couldn’t find anyone who disagreed with the substance of her remarks, in which she said she was “heartbroken” at Trump’s mocking of a disabled reporter while campaigning in fall 2015.

“Disrespect invites disrespect,” she said from the podium. “Violence incites violence. And when the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose.”

Her words exploded into a standing ovation in the room, whatever was happening on social media or elsewhere in America.

“I thought she could’ve gone further,” said one head of an independent film studio, speaking outside the party. (Streep never mentioned Trump by name in her speech.)

“She had every right to express her opinion, it’s her moment, she earned that,” said a lawyer who was part of the gaggle.

Celebrities have clearly taken a long beat in the wake of Trump’s election. With awards season upon us — meaning lots of moments at podiums available — and with the presidential inauguration just around the corner, many in Hollywood must have listened to Streep’s speech and wondered if they should follow suit and risk the backlash — or stick to the script, and regret missing an opportunity down the road.

It’s hard to take on the president-elect of the United State but it’s even harder to invite an avalanche of hateful pushback from the angry chorus on social media and elsewhere.

The choices are upon them. Screen Actors Guild awards are looming, and so are lots of other televised ceremonies. Meanwhile, I couldn’t find anyone who said they would attend the inauguration, where one performer after another has declined inducements and perks to sing at Trump’s opening party.

The entertainment community is still in mourning — no longer in paralyzed shock, perhaps, but weighing their next moves carefully.

But maybe something good will come of it. As Streep said, quoting her friend Carrie Fisher, “Take your broken heart, and make it into art.”

Golden Globes Tick Up 2 Percent in Early TV Ratings https://www.thewrap.com/golden-globes-household-tv-ratings/ https://www.thewrap.com/golden-globes-household-tv-ratings/#respond Mon, 09 Jan 2017 14:37:16 +0000 Tony Maglio https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1431244 If you didn’t care for “La La Land,” last night’s Golden Globes probably were not for you. Fortunately for NBC, enough people appear to be all-in on the Ryan Gosling musical.

The awards show, which was hosted by Jimmy Fallon of “The Tonight Show,” received a 13.3 household TV rating from Nielsen, up 2 percent from last year’s 13.0. That’s the second-best metered market showing for the special in a decade (since 2007’s 16.0).

Sunday’s 2017 Globes were up 6 percent from two years ago. In 2014, the show scored a 14.1.

Two percent may seem like a small number, but any increases for awards shows are difficult to come by these days. So whether or not readers and critics think Fallon did a good job, he proved a good choice as emcee.

Aside from these Globes, the only major awards show to grow on broadcast was 2016’s Tony Awards, which were boosted by “Hamilton.” Here’s a list of shows that dropped in the 56 metered markets measured by Nielsen over the last twelve months: the Oscars (-6 percent), Grammys (-4 percent), Emmys (-3 percent), CMAs (-6 percent), BBMAs (-20 percent), AMAs (-28 percent), ESPYs (-28 percent) and People’s Choice Awards (-27 percent).

Donald Glover Shares Lifelong Love of Lando Calrissian and ‘Star Wars’ https://www.thewrap.com/donald-glover-talks-lando-calrissian-star-wars/ https://www.thewrap.com/donald-glover-talks-lando-calrissian-star-wars/#respond Mon, 09 Jan 2017 05:28:51 +0000 Matt Pressberg https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1430950 If Donald Glover still has any of his “Star Wars” action figures, now he has two Golden Globes to go along with them.

Glover had a very big Sunday: “Atlanta,” which he created, won a Globe for best musical or comedy TV series, and he won for best actor in a musical or comedy show. Glover talked backstage with TheWrap’s Matt Donnelly about his next major role — playing the young Lando Calrissian in a “Star Wars” spinoff centered on a young Han Solo.

“Lando’s a big deal to me,” Glover said. “It was literally the first toy I ever got.”

Lando, originally played by Billy Dee Williams, first appeared in “The Empire Strikes Back” and played a key part in “Return of the Jedi.” Now Glover dons his blue cape — or at least whatever Lando was wearing before “Empire.”

“It’s hard, because you want to live up to their expectations, but all you can really do is live up to your own,” Glover said.

Glover, who also has a thriving rap career as Childish Gambino, began his Hollywood career as a writer for “30 Rock” before moving on to play Troy in “Community.” On FX’s “Atlanta,” he plays Earn Marks, a Princeton dropout trying to make it as a music manager.

Best: Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig Share Traumatic Movie Experiences. Before announcing the winner of Best Animated Film, Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig shared their first experience attending animated movies. Both kept the audience rolling with painfully emotional stories from their childhoods.

Worst: “Chastain and the Redmayne”. Sorry, Jimmy Fallon, but leave the rapping to the pros. Fallon introduced Jessica Chastain and Eddie Redmayne, playing off their names in a quick spoof of the Cypress Hill classic “Insane in the Membrane”

Heavy favorite “La La Land” swept all seven categories in which it was nominated, but many of the other awards had an international flair.

Here are some of Sunday’s notable snubs and surprises:

Aaron Taylor-Johnson – Surprise

Brit Taylor-Johnson, who played a rural Texas serial killer in “Nocturnal Animals,” topped a star-studded field to take home the Globe for Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama, Musical or Comedy

Mahershala Ali – Snub

One of the heavy favorites Taylor-Johnson edged out was Ali, who won rave reviews for playing truly multifaceted drug dealer Juan in “Moonlight.”

Billy Bob Thornton – Surprise

The “Goliath” star and Oscar winner beat out heavy favorite Rami Malek to win for Best Actor in a Television Series – Drama.

Rami Malek – Snub

Malek is the current Emmy winner for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his star turn as Elliot Alderson in “Mr. Robot,” but couldn’t add a Golden Globe despite being nominated two years in a row.

Tracee Ellis Ross – Surprise

“Black-ish” star Ross edged out a megawatt field including “Veep’s” Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Sarah Jessica Parker and breakout star Issa Rae to take home the Globe for Best Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy.

Hugh Laurie – Surprise

The British miniseries aired on AMC went three-for-three Sunday, with two-time Golden Globe winner Laurie claiming the trophy for Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Miniseries or Television Film.

John Lithgow – Snub

The veteran actor’s co-star on Netflix’s period drama “The Crown,” Claire Foy, won the Golden Globe for her portrayal of young Queen Elizabeth. But Lithgow, who plays Winston Churchill and was considered a slight favorite, lost out to Laurie.

Olivia Colman – Surprise

Colman kept up “The Night Manager’s” momentum, topping a field including “Westworld’s” Thandie Newton to take home the hardware for Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Miniseries or Television Film.

Thandie Newton – Snub

HBO’s “Westworld” is the premium cable channels latest must-watch epic, but the Hollywood Foreign Press Association looked beyond the sci-fi thriller, which was shut out.

Tom Hiddleston – Surprise

Hiddleston, who stars as the title character, joined co-stars Hugh Laurie and Olivia Colman as Golden Globe winners, taking home the hardware for Best Actor in a Miniseries or Television Film

Courtney B. Vance – Snub

Vance embodied O.J. Simpson’s silver-tongued and brightly hued attorney Johnnie Cochran in FX’s “American Crime Story: The People Vs. O.J. Simpson.” And while he won an Emmy for that role, Hiddleston edged him out in the eyes of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

Isabelle Huppert – Surprise

Maybe it shouldn’t have been such a surprise given the fact that it is the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, but the “Elle” star topped heavy betting favorite Natalie Portman of “Jackie” to claim Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama

Natalie Portman – Snub

The “Jackie” star was a huge 1-to-4 favorite for her embodiment of former First Lady Jackie Kennedy, but the Oscar winner lost out to Huppert Sunday.

Golden Globes Analysis: All Hail to ‘La La Land’ and Meryl Streep https://www.thewrap.com/golden-globes-analysis-hail-to-la-la-land-and-meryl-streep/ https://www.thewrap.com/golden-globes-analysis-hail-to-la-la-land-and-meryl-streep/#respond Mon, 09 Jan 2017 04:27:09 +0000 Steve Pond https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1430842 The opening number was a tipoff. The 74th Annual Golden Globes began with a Jimmy Fallon song-and-dance number based on “La La Land,” and then continued heaping the honors on Damien Chazelle’s musical, breaking a long-standing habit of spreading the wealth until the Oscar front-runner ended the night as the biggest movie winner in Globes history.

And except for the moments when Meryl Streep was on stage and the evening of glitz stopped in its tracks to pay attention to her comments excoriating President-Elect Donald Trump, it was a “La La Land” night from start to almost-finish. The film won the Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy award with more than 15 minutes to go in the telecast, but the drama awards offered an anticlimactic coda to the victories of “La La Land” and the eloquence of Streep.

Sure, those 15 minutes contained some key awards: an acting prize for Casey Affleck (“Manchester by the Sea”) over Denzel Washington (“Fences”), which showed that Globes voters aren’t always dazzled by stardom; the best-actress award for Isabelle Huppert, an emotional moment for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to put the emphasis on foreign; and the Best Motion Picture – Drama award for “Moonlight,” honoring a small and eloquent movie that had been overlooked for the rest of the evening.

Those were good, smart and, in Huppert’s case, surprising choices that the HFPA members should be proud they made. But in the end, this was unquestionably a night for “La La Land” and for Meryl.

With its seventh Globe out of seven nominations, Chazelle’s musical broke the record set 41 years ago by “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” and tied three years later by “Midnight Express,” the only two films in the Globes’ 74-year existence to win six prizes in one night. (And both of those benefited from the now-defunct “debut performance” categories, which added one to the “Cuckoo’s Nest” haul and two to “Midnight Express.”)

The film has looked almost unstoppable since it debuted in Venice more than four months ago, and it still looks that way, though the tastes of the 90-odd members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is hardly a barometer for anything else that will happen between now and February 26, when the Oscars bring an end to awards season.

And while the first award of the night suggested that these voters were determined to be as perverse as ever — picking the “Nocturnal Animals” co-star Aaron Taylor-Johnson in the supporting-actor category over four actors all thought to be likelier winners by most pundits – they ended up being more discerning than perverse.

So now the Globes are history and awards season moves on. At best (for the HFPA, at least), a few Academy members will watch the show and decide to pick up the screener of “Moonlight” or “Manchester” or even “Nocturnal Animals” before Oscar voting closes on Friday. At worst, nobody whose vote really matters will notice who won, or remember it by the middle of the week.

And, let’s face it: Oscar voters do not need the HFPA to tell them they should watch “La La Land” — or, for that matter, listen to what Meryl Streep has to say.

If they don’t know that already, there’s no hope for them.

The film starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling walked away with a record-breaking seven Golden Globes, winning in every category for which it was nominated. Meanwhile, the AMC limited series starring Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie won three statues.

The FX freshman drama “Atlanta” also did well, pocketing the two awards it was up for: Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy and also Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy for series creator Donald Glover.

On the motion picture side, “Elle” star Isabelle Huppert upset several major contenders, including Natalie Portman and Amy Adams, to take home Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama. That was the second award the film won on Sunday, on top of Best Motion Picture – Foreign Language.

Sadly, the much talked about film “Hidden Fences” took home no awards. Of course, there is no such film, but Michael Keaton and Jenna Bush both flubbed the title of the awards contender “Hidden Figures” by combining its title with that of the Viola Davis-Denzel Washington drama “Fences.”

‘La La Land’ Breaks Golden Globes Record With 7 Prizes https://www.thewrap.com/la-la-land-breaks-golden-globes-record-movie-wins/ https://www.thewrap.com/la-la-land-breaks-golden-globes-record-movie-wins/#respond Mon, 09 Jan 2017 03:34:04 +0000 Matt Pressberg https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1430743 “La La Land” has just set the Globes’ all-time record, as Lionsgate’s musical love note to the City of Angels claimed seven of seven trophies with its win for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.

“La La Land” claimed hardware in every other category for which it was nominated earlier in the evening: Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy (Ryan Gosling), Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy (Emma Stone), Best Director (Damien Chazelle), Best Screenplay (Chazelle), Best Original Score (Justin Hurwitz) and Best Original Song (Hurwitz et al for “City of Stars.”)

Chazelle’s musical entered Sunday night as a heavy favorite in almost every category it was nominated in, earning the highest number of nomination for any film this year.

The Golden Globes show itself opened with a tribute set to a medley of the film’s musical numbers, featuring host Jimmy Fallon, Justin Timberlake, Tina Fey and friends.

The “La La Land” awards sweep is a stunning achievement considering the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s usual reluctance to give a single film such a concentration of trophies.

“The Social Network,” which came out in 2009, was the last film to win more than three Globes, and the previous all-time record of six, since topped by “La La Land,” hadn’t been reached since 1978. That year, “Midnight Express” won six awards, three years after “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” first achieved that feat.

Meryl Streep Calls Out Donald Trump in Golden Globes Speech: ‘Disrespect Invites Disrespect’ (Video) https://www.thewrap.com/golden-globes-2/ https://www.thewrap.com/golden-globes-2/#respond Mon, 09 Jan 2017 03:24:31 +0000 Joe Otterson https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1430419

Meryl Streep took Donald Trump to task during her acceptance speech for the Cecil B. Demille Award at the Golden Globes on Sunday.

“It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter, someone he outranked in privilege, power, and the capacity to fight back,” Streep said, referring to an incident with Trump on the campaign trail. “It kind of broke my heart when I saw it. I still can’t get it out of my head because it wasn’t in a movie. It was real life.”

“[This] instinct to humiliate, when it’s modelled by someone in the public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody’s life, because it kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing,” the “Florence Foster Jenkins” actress continued.

“Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence incites violence. And when the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose.”

Streep also called on Hollywood to support a free and independent press as we find ourselves entering the Trump era.  “We need the principled press to hold power to account, to call them on the carpet for every outrage,” she said. “That’s why our founders enshrined the press and its freedoms in our constitution.”

She concluded by invoking the memory of the late Carrie Fisher, saying, “As my friend, the dear departed Princess Leia said to me once, ‘Take your broken heart, make it into art.’ Thank you.”

John Legend was somehow renamed as “John Ledgend” by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association on his name card at the Beverly Hilton, a mistake that was not overlooked by his wife, Chrissy Teigen.

“Bahahaha loser,” the model wrote on Twitter, along with a photo of a scowling Legend.

Aside from the fact that “Legend” is a common word and easier to spell than most names in Hollywood, the “Glory” singer was a presenter at the show, won the Best Original Song award at the 2015 Golden Globes and stars in “La La Land,” which entered Sunday night with seven nominations — the most of any film this year.

Big mistake, HFPA. Better luck next time.

On a night meant for laughs and accolades, the Golden Globes took a moment to pay a melancholy tribute to one of Hollywood’s most successful mother/daughter duos: Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher.

The tribute featured Reynolds’ performance of the song “You Made Me Love You” from the musical “Irene” accompanying a montage that included clips from “Singing In The Rain,” “Star Wars,” and other classic moments from the two actresses’ illustrious careers.

The montage ended with Fisher and Reynolds embracing following a duet performance of that song on a 2011 episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show.

Carrie Fisher passed away on December 27, followed by Reynolds just a day later.

A documentary about both actresses, “Bright Lights,” premiered on HBO on Saturday, accompanied by an encore presentation of “Wishful Drinking,” the documentary about Fisher’s one-woman stage show of the same name.

Watch the tribute to Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher in the clip above.

NBC has blocked access to the livestream of tonight’s awards ceremony on their website and on Sling and DirecTV’s streaming services. In previous years, networks have made major awards ceremonies available for streaming to cable and satellite TV subscribers.

Tonight, though, NBC removed all online access of the show without warning. Attempting to access the stream on DirecTV or SlingTV gets a message saying that the Golden Globes are unavailable.

NBC Universal did not immediately respond to requests for comment about the stream blackout.

Of course, this has left a lot of NBC’s potential audience very angry.

Hugh Laurie is delighted at his third Golden Globe win, but got a little somber when he brought up the idea that this might be the last Golden Globe Awards show ever.

He was joking of course — kinda.

“I’ll be able to say that I won this at the last ever Golden Globes,” Laurie said on Sunday during his acceptance speech. “I don’t mean to be gloomy, it’s just that it has ‘Hollywood, Foreign and Press’ in the title.”

The 57-year-old British actor was obviously taking a low-key jab at President-elect Donald Trump and his relationship with Hollywood and the media, as well as his policies on immigration.

“I also think that to some Republicans even the word ‘association’ is slightly sketchy,” continued the “The Night Manager” star.

The joke didn’t stop there, however. Laurie went on to give one more shout out to the Donald.

“Thank you to also the many, many people who gave me this wonderful, extraordinary, once in a lifetime opportunity,” said the actor. “So I accept this award on behalf of psychopathic billionaires everywhere.”

The British actor, who’s most notably known for his role on “House,” won the award for Best Supporting Actor for a Series, Miniseries or Television Film for his part on “The Night Manager.”

Fortunately, the equipment was fixed within minutes, and between the show’s “La La Land”-inspired opening extravaganza and Fallon’s rollicking monologue, the technical snafu was more of a speed bump than anything else.

TheWrap was able to confirm from multiple cameramen and technical staffers at the Beverly Hilton’s International Ballroom that the teleprompter did indeed go down — it wasn’t just part of the show. According to those sources, the issue came from a cable underneath the main camera platform at the center of the room.

The problem was resolved and the prompter came back after a few minutes, but the episode was certainly not the type of cord-cutting Amazon and Netflix (which are responsible for multiple Golden Globe nominees) have in mind.

And after the teleprompter came back to life, Fallon got right to the heart of his material, which included a surprisingly good Chris Rock impersonation and several veiled shots at another showbiz figure who isn’t fond of teleprompters, President-elect Donald Trump.

“Hidden Fences” is rapidly becoming the most talked about movie of the 2017 Golden Globes.

Michael Keaton, in giving out the award for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture, accidentally referred to to the film “Hidden Figures” as “Hidden Fences,” combing the title of the former film and “Fences.”

Ironically, Viola Davis was also nominated in the same category for “Fences.” But Keaton did not say she was up for “Figures.”

Earlier in the evening on the red carpet, NBC News correspondent Jenna Bush made the same mistake when she asked Pharrell Williams about his nomination for “Hidden Fences.” Williams was in fact nominated for his work as a composer on “Hidden Figures.”

“Hidden Figures” is based on a true story and stars Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monae. The actresses play three black mathemeticians who were instrumental in the early days of NASA and the U.S. space program.

Spencer was nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture, but lost to Davis who won for “Fences,” about a black couple in the 1950s trying to raise their son and come to terms with trauma from their past.

“Fences” stars Denzel Washington, who also directed the film.

Washington is also nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture-Drama.

Kristen Bell is absolutely stunning in this full length black sequin gown.

Kinda

Ummm… We’re still debating on this one. The top part of Jessica Biel’s dress has potential until you get to the portion with the flowers or whatever those things are.

Best

Olivia Culpo took a big risk with this off the beaten path gown, but it worked in her favor. Gorgeous.

Mandy Moore is Elvira chic in an all black, low cut gown. She was smart to do a nude lip otherwise it’d be too kitschy.

Worst

Karrueche’s tacky fuchsia prom gown is detracting from her natural beauty.

Meh.

worst

We have no idea what’s going on here. Sophie Turner looks like she stepped out of Billionaire Boys Club or Less Than Zero

Issa Rae is working it in her floor length white gown. So chic. So beautiful. So much yes.

worst

Brie Larson is clashing her eras. She looks like a 1980’s Texas beauty queen while her hair is a blast from the ’50’s.

worst

Kerry Washington let us down with this awkward length, gold patterned dress and she usually never disappoints. At least her makeup is on point though.

best

Maisie Williams kept it simple, classy and bold with this muted yellow gown.

worst

It looks like Zoe Saldana got caught in a fight with a cotton candy lace fabric machine and lost.

worst

Sorry Michael Shannon, but your tux looks a little too small.

best

Donald Glover would wear a brown velvet suit and thank heavens he did because he’s rocking it. Good job for not blending in with the sea of black tuxes.

Natalie Portman appears to still be stuck in her “Jackie” role in this 60s avocado yellow dress thing.

best

This is how you rock a yellow gown. Reese Witherspoon is flawless. FLAWLESS.

We don’t know what Jessica Chastain was thinking with this blue dress featuring flowery sequins. This is a definite no from us.

We love that Pharrell Williams always tries to make a statement but his beanie is throwing us way off. It’s not even beanie weather. Also, Helen Lasichanh’s boho dress is totally clashing with her hubby’s “statement” piece.

Golden Globes: 7 Best Jokes From Jimmy Fallon’s Political Monologue Targeting Trump (Video) https://www.thewrap.com/golden-globes-2017-jimmy-fallon-monologue-best-jokes-donald-trump-oj-simpson-matt-damon/ https://www.thewrap.com/golden-globes-2017-jimmy-fallon-monologue-best-jokes-donald-trump-oj-simpson-matt-damon/#respond Mon, 09 Jan 2017 01:55:39 +0000 Greg Gilman https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1430056

Jimmy Fallon’s Golden Globes monologue got off to a rocky start on Sunday night.

The “Tonight Show” host stepped on stage after dancing with Justin Timberlake in a starry night sky during a “La La Land” parody sequence, and was welcomed by a room full of Hollywood stars and a malfunctioning teleprompter.

“Welcome to the Golden Globes. Already the teleprompter is down, so this is a great way to start the show,” Fallon said. “You know what, I’ll make up this monologue. This is what happens at the Golden Globes.”

After a minute of Fallon rambling, the Dick Clark Productions team got the teleprompter working and the comedian back on track for a monologue that was upstaged by his grand entrance. Still, there were a few gems, mostly jabs at Donald Trump and a Chris Rock impersonation.

1. Fallon got political quickly when he gave the Golden Globes props for being “one of the few places left where America still honors the popular vote” — a reference to Hollywood favorite Hillary Clinton winning the popular vote in the presidential election, but losing to Trump, who won the Electoral College. 

2. Fallon turned his attention to “Game of Thrones,” the hit HBO fantasy series nominated for Best Television Series – Drama, and couldn’t help but compare the president-elect to one of the show’s most notorious villains.

“This show has so many plot twists and shocking moments. A lot of people have wondered what it would have been like if King Joffrey had lived,” Fallon said. “Well in 12 days, we’re going to find out.”

3. He squeezed in a jab at the lack of talent lining up for Trump’s inauguration on Jan. 20 when bringing up Meryl Streep drama “Florence Foster Jenkins,” which is nominated for four Globes.

“The character is billed as the world’s worst opera singer, and even she turned down performing at the Trump inauguration,” Fallon joked.

4. In a jab at the past year — which not only gave Trump the White House, but also claimed the lives of a number of icons from music, TV and film — Fallon called Casey Affleck drama “Manchester by the Sea” the “only thing from 2016 that was more depressing than 2016.”

5. Fallon’s final political reference came toward the end of his monologue when mentioning the accounting firm that carefully tabulates all of the votes, “Ernst & Young & Putin.”

The two best jokes, however, weren’t political. 

6. Fallon singled out former Golden Globe winner Matt Damon in the audience by saying, “We all know Matt Damon from his greatest acting role: Telling Ben Affleck he liked ‘Batman v Superman.'”

7. Another moment that made the audience roar with laughter earlier on in the monologue was when Fallon pulled out his Chris Rock impression to talk about “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” which is nominated for five awards.

“I got advice from everybody. Chris Rock said, ‘A lotta great shows this year. ‘People v. OJ’ gonna win. People gonna get up there and say, ‘I couldn’t have done it without Ryan Murphy. I couldn’t have done it without my agent, my manager,'” Fallon said in his finest Rock voice. “I’ll tell you the one person you couldn’t have done it without: OJ. No one’s going to thank OJ.”

It’s funny — because it’s true.

Although, the night is still young, so someone involved in the show could very well thank OJ Simpson for inspiring the critically-acclaimed FX miniseries that chronicled the biggest murder trial of the 20th century.

Most Golden Globes Viewers Haven’t Seen ‘La La Land’ https://www.thewrap.com/most-golden-globes-watchers-did-not-see-la-la-land/ https://www.thewrap.com/most-golden-globes-watchers-did-not-see-la-la-land/#respond Mon, 09 Jan 2017 01:48:11 +0000 Matt Pressberg https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1430080 “La La Land” mesmerized Golden Globes voters, but most of the people who watched the awards ceremony at home don’t know why.

It won a record seven Golden Globes, including for Best Picture in the comedy or musical category and acting prizes for leads Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. The show opened with an homage to “La La Land” featuring host Jimmy Fallon and his old friends Tina Fey and Justin Timberlake.

But it’s unlikely that more than a third of the people watching from home have actually seen the film.

Here’s how we arrived at that estimate.

“La La Land” has made a modest $51.6 million domestically. At last year’s average ticket price of $8.42 (a number provided by the National Association of Theatre Owners), that adds up to about 6.1 million people who bought tickets to “La La Land” — with a few thousand insiders and media types seeing it for free.

Last year, 18.5 million people tuned in for the Golden Globes, which was down from 19.3 million the year before. Assuming the same viewership as last year (and that everyone who saw “La La Land” is watching the Globes), that would leave more than than two-thirds of today’s TV audience out of the loop.

Of course, award-magnet films like “La La Land” often benefit at the box office from buzz around their wins — so Sunday was probably a great night for “La La Land” in ways we can’t count yet.

“Black-ish” star Tracee Ellis Ross won big at the Golden Globes on Sunday, dedicating her win to “colorful people.”

“This is for all of the women, women of color, and colorful people, whose stories, ideas, thoughts, are not always considered worthy and valid and important,” Ross said, while while accepting the award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy.

“But I want you to know that I see you,” she continued. “We see you. It is an honor to be on this show, ‘black-ish,’ to continue expanding the way we are seen and known, and to show the magic and the beauty and the sameness of a story and stories that are outside of where the industry usually looks.

Ross concluded by thanking her parents and siblings. “I don’t know who else there is other than the amazing people who have brought me here in my career. It’s nice at 44. i like it here.”

This was Ross’ first Golden Globe nomination, and now first win. Her competition was: Issa Rae for “Insecure;” Rachel Bloom for “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend;” Julia Louis-Dreyfus for “Veep;” Sarah Jessica Parker for “Divorce;” and Gina Rodriguez for “Jane the Virgin.”

She was previously nominated for an Emmy in 2016 for her role on “black-ish,” but lost out to Louis-Dreyfus for “Veep.”

With the help of Tina Fey, Justin Timberlake, and many of the big TV stars of the past year, Jimmy Fallon kicked off the Golden Globes with a playful spin on one of this awards season’s biggest contenders, “La La Land.”

The show began with a parody of the film’s striking opening number, “Another Day of Sun.” But while “La La Land” put their dance number on a crowded L.A. freeway overpass, Fallon put his number on a backed up red carpet filled with limos.

The host was quickly joined in the number by the cast of “People v. O.J. Simpson,” Evan Rachel Wood sporting her outfit from “Westworld,” a sleeping Kit Harington, and the kids from “Stranger Things”…who were accompanied by the glorious return of Barb from the pool where she met her untimely end.

 

Fallon then moved on to his own rendition of “City of Stars” as Ryan Reynolds reclined on his grand piano. Finally, he danced through the stars with Justin Timberlake in a send-up of Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone’s planetarium waltz…but not before giving Tina Fey the stiff-arm.

Check out the intro in the clip above.
