And the Podcast Goes To… Episode 3: Breaking Down the 2017 Golden Globes and ‘La La Land’ Backlash
The list of 2017 Golden Globes nominees had more surprises to offer than the awards ceremony itself — except for that Aaron Taylor-Johnson win. (Seriously, what was that?) While this year’s big movie winners were relatively predictable, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association continued their annual tradition of throwing a few curveballs in the television categories (at least we finally know someone’s actually watching Goliath). Now that the Golden Globes have come and gone with little incident, we’re officially on the road to Oscar night, but first, join us for a recap of the Globes’ winners, losers, and most memorable moments — okay, maybe just one moment in particular.
Yes, Meryl Streep gave a great speech, and the look on Mel Gibson’s face, which can only be described as “having a senior moment,” was priceless, but the real winner of the 2017 Golden Globes was clearly Viola Davis. On the latest episode of ScreenCrush’s awards season podcast, And the Podcast Goes To…, Erin Whitney and Britt Hayes discuss Davis’ amazing introduction for Streep and their hopes for a Davis / Streep White House run. And because some other stuff happened and they have a job to do, Erin and Britt break down this year’s big winners, discuss the La La Land backlash, and how the Globes results could impact the Oscars.
