Producer Graham King accepted the award, saying: “The power of movies is that it brings us all together. Freddie Mercury and Queen did that so successfully through their music,” before thanking Mercury himself: “Thank you for showing us the power of embracing your true self.”
11:14: Rami Malek wins best actor in a motion picture, drama, for “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
Malek picked up the best drama actor trophy for playing Freddie Mercury, and he made sure to thank the legendary singer: “Thank you to Freddie Mercury for giving me the joy of a lifetime,” he said. “I love you, you beautiful man. This is for and because of you, gorgeous.”
He also thanked Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor, “for ensuring that authenticity and inclusivity exists in the music and in the world and all of us.”
11:04: Glenn Close wins best actress in a motion picture, drama, for “The Wife.”
Close delivered a rousing speech that started with a laugh: “It was called ‘The Wife.’ I think that’s why it took 14 years to get made.”
As she continued, several audience members took to their feet and cheered as Close spoke with tears in her eyes: “To play a character who is so internal, I’m thinking of my mom who really sublimated herself to my father her whole life. In her 80s, she said to me, ‘I feel like I haven’t accomplished anything.’ And it was so not right. Women, we’re nurturers, that’s what’s expected of us. We have our children, our husbands … our partners, but we have to find personal fulfillment. We have to follow our dreams. We have to say, ‘I can do that, and I should be allowed to do that.’ When I was little I felt like Muhammad Ali was destined to be a boxer, I felt destined to be an actress. I saw the early Disney films … and I said, ‘I can do that!’ And I’m here today. It will have been 45 years in September that I am a working actress, and I cannot imagine a more wonderful life.”
10:54: “Green Book” wins best motion picture, musical or comedy.
“Wow, that’s unbelievable. I’m just so grateful,” director Peter Farrelly said as he accepted the award for the film, which won two other awards — best screenplay and best supporting actor for Mahershala Ali, who played pianist Don Shirley.
Farrelly thanked his way through a long list of names, including his family and the many people who worked to bring “Green Book” to the big screen. He declared producer Octavia Spencer “the best thing that happened to this movie” before thanking Ali and his co-stars Viggo Mortensen and Linda Cardellini. He then turned his attention to his film, which has earned a fair share of backlash even as it has racked up award-show nominations and other accolades.
“ ‘Green Book’ is the story of a trip,” Farrelly began, as the ceremony’s producers began playing him off the stage. “Please no, turn that off,” he pleaded as he explained the film’s focus on the unlikely friendship between Shirley, a noted African American jazz pianist, and his Italian American driver, Tony Vallelonga.
“This story, when I heard it, gave me hope, and I wanted to share that hope with you because we are still living in divided times — maybe more so than ever,” Farrelly said.
“All we have to do is talk and to not judge people by their differences, but look for what we have in common. And we have a lot in common,” he continued. “We all want the same thing: We want love, we want happiness, we want to be treated equally. And that’s not such a bad thing.”
10:44: Olivia Colman wins best actress in a motion picture, comedy or musical for her role in “The Favourite.”
Colman, who has previously won a Golden Globe for her role in “The Night Manager,” appeared to be overcome with emotion as she accepted the award. She thanked several people, including director Yorgos Lanthimos and “my b-----s, Emma [Stone] and Rachel [Weisz] … every second of working with you girls was such a joy. I was so sad when it finished.”
Finally, a smiling Colman, nearly in tears, said, “I would like to tell you how much this film means to me, but I can’t think it of because I’m too excited.”
10:37: FX’s “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” wins best limited series or motion picture made for TV.
Executive producer Brad Simpson accepted the award for “The Assassination of Gianni Versace” and thanked Fox and FX “for supporting disruptive television.” He noted that Versace, who was killed 20 years ago, was one of the few public figures who was open about his sexuality during an intense era of “hate and fear.”
“Those forces of hate and fear are still with us,” Simpson said, adding that artists should fight back for those who are not represented and tell their stories. “As human beings, we should resist in the streets, resist at the ballot box, and practice love and empathy in our everyday lives.”
Simpson concluded by saying that although “The Assassination of Gianni Versace” was a period piece, “those forces are not historical. They’re here and they’re with us, and we must resist.”
10:28: “The Kominsky Method” wins best comedy series.
The Netflix series premiered just a few months ago but has already nabbed a best series Golden Globe. “This doesn’t happen to me,” said show creator Chuck Lorre, the man behind highly rated network multi-camera sitcoms such as “The Big Bang Theory” and “Two and a Half Men.”
Michael Douglas won best actor in a TV series earlier in the evening for his role as Sandy Kominsky.
10:25: Rachel Brosnahan wins best actress in a TV series, musical or comedy for Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” for the second consecutive year.
“Our village is a matriarchy,” Brosnahan said as she thanked show creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, producer Dhana Gilbert and other colleagues. “We have women in so many leadership roles across the show.”
10:15: Alfonso Cuarón wins best director for “Roma.”
"I’m after Jeff Bridges and Harrison Ford, so good luck,” Cuarón said jokingly to begin his speech. “Roma,” based on the director’s middle-upper-class upbringing in the Roma neighborhood of Mexico City, was the subject of much awards show conversation. Yes, critics loved the film — but its release method was particularly of note. The movie received a limited release in theaters while simultaneously appearing on Netflix.
To that end, Cuarón thanked the streaming service for bringing “this very unlikely film into mainstream awareness.”
Then, his speech turned more personal as he thanked the real influences upon which his film was based.
“This film was erected by my mother and my family, and probably more importantly by this place, this very complex lab that shaped and created me,” he said, before switching to his native tongue. “So muchas gracias, Mexico.”
10:02: Chris Pine introduced Jeff Bridges (his “Hell or High Water” co-star), this year’s winner of the Cecil B. DeMille Award. Pine said that Bridges “sets a standard of excellence,” although he joked that he was mostly referring to Bridges’s famous role as “El Duderino.”
What followed was a speech by Bridges that was . . . well, how do we put this kindly? Kind of hard to follow? It started off in a fairly standard fashion, as he thanked his family, his representatives, his assistant and all of those people that famous people typically thank. He gave a shoutout to the Coen brothers, saying he was honored to play the part of the Dude in “The Big Lebowski.” “If I’m lucky, I’ll be associated with the Dude for the rest of my life,” Bridges said.
The rest of the speech seemed like it was a larger metaphor about life being a game of tag, and if you’re tagged, you’re it, and you should be thankful to be alive? There was also something about a ship? We’re not entirely sure, but the audience looked like a combination of “confused” and “loving it.”
“We’re alive. We can make a difference! We can turn this ship in the way we want to go, man! For it’s love creating a healthy planet for all of us!” Bridges roared at the end, as everyone applauded.
Afterward, Harrison Ford appeared onstage to present best director and looked a bit flummoxed. “Nobody told me I had to follow Jeff Bridges,” he said.
9:55: Darren Criss wins best actor in a limited series or TV movie for “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.”
This is Criss’s first nomination and win. “As we’ve seen, this has been a marvelous year for representation in Hollywood,” Criss said, adding that he was “so enormously proud” to be a small part of it as “the son of a firecracker Filipina woman.”
“Mom,” he said, “I know you’re watching this. You’re hugely responsible for most of the good things in my life. I love you dearly. I dedicate this to you.”
9:50: “Roma” wins best foreign language film. Mexican director Alfonso Cuarón wrote, produced, co-edited and served as director of photography on the semi-autobiographical film.
“Gracias, familia,” he said. “Gracias, Mexico.”
9:49: The show is still running, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take a little time to tweet out a post-win selfie. This one comes courtesy of “If Beale Street Could Talk” director Barry Jenkins, after Regina King’s win:
9:43: Christian Bale wins best actor in a motion picture, musical or comedy for his role as former vice president Dick Cheney in “Vice.”
The actor began by thanking his wife and sharing the advice she gave him before taking the stage: “Say less.”
“I can sink and ruin a perfectly good movie and a so-so career in one speech,” Bale joked. He also thanked director Adam McKay, who the actor noted needed “someone who can be absolutely charisma-free and reviled by everybody” for the role of Cheney.
Bale said he would corner the acting market on disliked politicians. “What do you think — Mitch McConnell next?” he riffed before thanking Satan (yes, Satan) “for giving me inspiration on how to play this role.”
9:40: Patricia Clarkson wins best supporting actress in a series, limited series or TV movie for her role in HBO’s “Sharp Objects.” This is Clarkson’s second nomination but first win. Before giving a heartfelt thanks to her parents in her hometown of New Orleans, Clarkson used some dark humor to address the Time’s Up movement.
“You demanded everything of me, except sex,” she said of director Jean-Marc Vallée, as the already loud crowd burst into nervous laughter. “Which is exactly how it should be in our industry.”
9:34: Nick Vallelonga, Brian Currie and Peter Farrelly win best screenplay for “Green Book.”
9:30: Mahershala Ali wins for best supporting actor in a motion picture for “Green Book.”
This is Ali’s first Golden Globe win; he was nominated in the same category in 2017 for “Moonlight.”
“Dr. Shirley was a brilliant man, and I just want to thank him for his passion and virtuosity and the dignity with which he carried himself each and every day,” Ali said during his acceptance speech, about the man he played in the movie.
9:21: Host Sandra Oh wins best actress in a TV series, drama, for “Killing Eve.” It’s her second Golden Globe nomination and second win. “I’d like to thank my mother and my father,” a tearful Oh said before doing so in Korean.
9:17: Regina King wins best supporting actress in a motion picture for her role in Barry Jenkins’s “If Beale Street Could Talk.” This is her first Golden Globe win and third nomination.
“I love you with all my heart,” King told director Jenkins during her emotional speech. “Thank you for your empathy. Thank you for telling stories so rich that my son said to me when he saw it that it was the first time that he really saw himself.” She also thanked novelist James Baldwin’s family for trusting Jenkins and the cast with bringing the late writer’s words to the big screen.
Toward the end of her speech, King referenced criticism that celebrities use award show moments to talk about themselves. Rather, King said, they often use these moments to talk about systemic issues. “Times Up, times two,” she declared as the ceremony’s producers appeared to play her offstage. The music stopped completely.
“The reason why we do this is because we understand that our microphones are big, and we’re speaking for everyone,” King said before vowing that in the next two years all of her projects will feature at least “50 percent women.”
“I just challenge anyone out there who is in a position of power — not just in our industry, in all industries — to challenge yourselves and stand with us in solidarity and do the same.”
Regina stopped the play-off music DEAD in its tracks.— Don Van Natta Jr. (@DVNJr) January 7, 2019
9:05: “Shallow” from “A Star Is Born” wins best original song.
This is probably the first of many times audiences can expect to hear the song “Shallow,” performed by Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga, this awards season. Mark Ronson, who co-wrote the song, gave most of the acceptance speech as Lady Gaga was overcome with emotion.
"When you write a song with Lady Gaga, all you’re doing is making yourself the best supporting cast you can be,” Ronson said, thanking the pop star turned actress.
"As a woman in music, it is very hard to be taken seriously as a musician,” Lady Gaga said, before thanking fellow co-writers Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt.
“Bradley, I love you,” she added. Cooper, who performed the song but was not a co-writer, was not on stage to accept the award.
9:04 “First Man” wins best original score. Justin Hurwitz has now won three times in the category, including for his original score for “La La Land,” also directed by Damien Chazelle.
8:54: Steve Carell presented the first-ever Carol Burnett Award, which honors achievement in television, to its namesake. Burnett, 85, was the first woman to host a variety sketch TV show, and it received 25 Emmys throughout its 11-year run.
“Does this mean I get to accept it every year?” Burnett asked. While watching television as a teenager, she said, she was fascinated by “the way the stars on-screen could make people laugh or cry or sometimes both. I wished and hoped that maybe someday, I could have the chance to do the same thing. Well, those childhood dreams came true.”
Burnett then thanked “reruns and YouTube” for bringing her show to modern audiences and said what has remained the same since her show first aired is the belief among TV actors that “we’ve been given the opportunity to do something special.”
8:46: Samberg and Oh decided to mix things up for a mid-show stunt. Normally, Samberg said, the hosts would do something like “order pizzas for everyone” to show they’re “normal.” But this year, they decided to do something different by bringing in a group of medical professionals to give surprise flu shots to the Hollywood elite — especially Willem Dafoe, the hosts joked.
Of course, not everyone in Hollywood believes in vaccines.
“If you’re an anti-vaxxer, just put a napkin over your head, and we’ll skip you,” Samberg added, laughing.
8:43: Patricia Arquette wins best actress in a limited series or TV movie for her role in Showtime’s “Escape at Dannemora.”
8:39: Ben Whishaw wins best supporting actor in a series, limited series or TV movie for his role in Amazon’s “A Very English Scandal.”
8:30: “The Americans” wins for best TV series, drama. The FX series finally received a nomination in this category for its final season — and it won.
8:26: “Bodyguard’s” Richard Madden wins best actor in a TV series, drama. This was his first Globe nomination.
8:18 “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” wins best animated feature film. “We’re in an alternate universe where we win this,” filmmaker Phil Lord, who co-wrote the screenplay, said as he thanked the Hollywood Foreign Press for recognizing “such an unusual film.” Lord also thanked the late Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, who co-created the web-slinging hero.
8:13: Michael Douglas wins best actor in a TV series, musical or comedy for his role in Netflix’s “The Kominsky Method.” During his speech, Douglas thanked the show’s creator, Chuck Lorre, who “thinks getting old is funny,” along with his 102-year-old father, Kirk Douglas. The win is somewhat surprising, considering his competition included such stars as Bill Hader in HBO’s “Barry” and Donald Glover in FX’s “Atlanta.” But Douglas is an old hand at the Golden Globes, having taken home two (and being nominated for 9) over the years.
8:10: And we’re off! This year’s hosts, Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh, ditched the typical roast and instead showered praise on all the nominees — but delivered them as if they were disses. Here’s a sampling:
“Spike Lee, Mr. ‘Do the Right Thing,’ you know who can do the right thing? You! Lifetime fan, can’t wait to see what you do next.”
“Bradley Cooper. You are hot.”
For Michael B. Jordan: “Michael B. Buff A-F. You a snack, Michael!” And: “Your character’s name in ‘Creed’ is Adonis, and it is apt.”
When Oh noted that “Crazy Rich Asians” was the first studio film “with an Asian American lead since ‘Ghost in the Shell’ and ‘Aloha,’” Emma Stone audibly yelled “I’m sorry!” from the crowd.
The monologue ended on a serious note, with a visibly emotional Oh saying, “In all honesty, I said yes to the fear of being on this stage tonight because I wanted to be here, to look out at this audience and witness this moment of change,” referring to the diverse array of nominees. “I’m not fooling myself, next year it could be different, it probably will, but right now, this moment is real. Trust me. It is real, because I see you. I see you. … All of these faces of change, and now so will everyone else.”
7:54: After that thrilling ending to the Eagles-Bears game (Bears miss a field goal! Eagles win, 16-15!), how do you think die-hard Philly fan Bradley Cooper feels right now? Even if “A Star Is Born” loses everything, maybe he won’t care.
7:40: Timothée Chalamet, nominated for playing recovering addict Nic Sheff in the drama “Beautiful Boy,” showed up in an all-black outfit that included a fabulous, bold and glittery (!!!) harness. He spoke to Ryan Seacrest about how prevalent addiction is throughout the United States: “There’s some honor in bringing that story to life,” he said.
7:30: Ryan Seacrest asked real-life couple Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell about their proudest achievement on their show “The Americans,” which ended last spring. After a long pause, Rhys joked: “Pulling off some of the wigs, I think, was a major achievement — like the one I’m wearing now!”
7:26: Henry Winkler continued to be an affable awards contender months after winning his first Primetime Emmy Award in September for his role in HBO’s “Barry.” When he won, he gave a speech he wrote 43 years ago — when he was first nominated for an Emmy.
On the red carpet before the Globes, he again referenced his former nods, joking: “I was nominated in 1974. I don’t like to be a hog. I like to stretch things out a bit.”
There was a certain giddiness around the TV veteran on the carpet, but it was the crew who prerecorded messages for Winkler that really stood out. Fellow “Happy Days” co-stars Ron Howard, Anson Williams and Don Most all wished the actor well tonight in a series of short videos aired on E!.
7:25: While most red carpet viewers are tuned in to E!, the Golden Globes is hosting another red carpet special on Facebook — and while it’s mostly the same stars, you get a bit of a different view. For example, as the hosts chatted with John David Washington about what happened when he and his dad, Denzel, found out he was nominated for a Golden Globe (“We held field goal hands up to one another and just hugged each other”), the background was equally interesting. Spike Lee started talking to Emily Blunt, who tapped husband John Krasinski to get his attention, because Spike Lee wanted to talk to him. As the three of them chatted, Debra Messing wandered by, as did Isla Fisher, and one can only hope Amy Adams was nearby for the summit of famous Hollywood redheads.
7:21: “Black Panther” stars Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o and Danai Gurira arrived together to Ryan Seacrest’s platform. The E! anchor asked the trio what it felt like to witness the cultural impact of their record-breaking film, almost a year after its release. Obviously, they felt great about it.
“It’s great to be here where the industry is recognizing it as well, because it encourages these kinds of films to be made more often,” Nyong’o said.
7:20: Kendall Jenner popped up in a Proactiv commercial, where she discussed her struggle with acne. This had us wondering: Is this the personal story her mother, Kris Jenner, teased the reality star and model would share with fans? In a tweet yesterday, the Kardashian matriarch said Jenner would share her “most raw story” in an effort to help and connect with her fans, prompting much speculation over what her daughter would reveal.
I’m so proud of my darling @KendallJenner for being so brave and vulnerable. Seeing you share her most raw story in order to make a positive impact for so many people and help foster a positive dialogue is a testament to the incredible woman you’ve become. pic.twitter.com/rJUXdN2Wmq— Kris Jenner (@KrisJenner) January 5, 2019
In the commercial, Kendall opens up about the mean comments (and supportive ones) she has received in response to what she called “bad skin.” And People reports that Jenner is indeed the company’s newest spokesperson. The model seemed to confirm this was her big news, retweeting Proactiv’s tweet welcoming her “to the family.”
7:20: Sam Rockwell and Leslie Bibb are married?! That’s really the only update, but as Rockwell talked about his role as George W. Bush in “Vice,” that’s all we could think about. Random Hollywood couples are always an unexpected gift of the red carpet.
7:09: Ryan Seacrest asked Lady Gaga, the front-runner for best actress in a motion picture, drama, whether playing pop star Ally in “A Star Is Born” felt different from the outlandish characters she has portrayed throughout her musical career.
“It’s very different,” Gaga said, at the start of a winding response. “I think I’ve created characters for years so I could be an actress, because I always wanted to be one and couldn’t make it.”
Through Ally, Gaga learned “a lot about going to the nectar of your being.”
7:06: “I was really amazed. I guess now I’ll have to keep my name,” veteran actress Carol Burnett told Ryan Seacrest of hearing that she would receive the inaugural Carol Burnett Award, the show’s highest honor for achievement in television. “Maybe they’ll give it to me every year.”
7:03: So apparently the cast of “This Is Us” knows how the series will end. “I hope it doesn’t end soon,” Justin Hartley said, but “I kind of know how the series ends.”
It’s time to pepper all of the cast members with questions that will somehow trip them up into revealing those details.
6:59: Thandie Newton, nominated in the best supporting actress category for her role as Maeve Millay in “Westworld,” said she didn’t read the script for the HBO show before signing on. She was simply a fan of the show’s creators, Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy. “I loved the setup, I loved what they were going to do with my character,” she told Ryan Seacrest.
Seacrest asked Newton about her daughter, Nico, who has made a foray into acting (you can see her in the upcoming live-action version of “Dumbo,” directed by Tim Burton). Newton is proud — and protective — of her daughter. “She’s got me to just be this she-tiger just waiting to pounce at any moment, just looking after her,” the actress — whose gorgeous red-carpet curls and sparkly silver dress drew Diana Ross comparisons on social media — told Seacrest.
6:54: Is the misidentification of celebrities occurring, once again, on the red carpet? Jameela Jamil, who plays Tahani Al-Jamil on “The Good Place,” was identified as “Kamilah Al-Jamil” during the E! red carpet coverage. Was it by accident? Or a clever joke? Tahani lives in the shadow of her more famous, more beloved sister, Kamilah.
E! later tweeted that the network definitely knew her name.
6:52: Over on NBC, the Philadelphia Eagles and the Chicago Bears are locked in a close (10-9, Eagles) — and, most notably, slow — wild-card playoff game. The NFL usually doesn’t cross paths with the Golden Globes, but the game could present a scheduling conflict. The network is set to air the Globes at 8 p.m. This slog of a playoff game, moving at the speed of molasses, could push the awards show back — especially if the game goes into overtime.
It’s unclear exactly what would happen if the game goes long, but an NBC spokesman reportedly said, “We plan to air both live in their entirety.”
6:47: Help! Chris Messina, who starred in HBO’s “Sharp Objects” alongside nominees Amy Adams and Patricia Clarkson, now has BLOND HAIR. Was he sorted into Slytherin? Does he really love Pete Wentz? Or perhaps it’s for a role?
6:44: Alison Brie said she’s not feeling so nervous this year, since she got “all the first-time jitters” out last year.
Brie is nominated for best actress in a TV series, musical or comedy for her role as one of the gorgeous ladies of wrestling in Netflix’s “Glow.” Though she was wearing a custom Vera Wang dress on the red carpet, she chatted about her physical transformation for the show instead. For the role, she underwent intense training, including performing pull-ups “with 25 pounds attached to my body,” she said, adding that though she had already been training for years, “when we started shooting ‘Glow,’ I said, 'Let’s up the ante,’ because I wanted to get really strong.”
She added that getting in shape was important because everyone on the show performs their own stunts, which can be frightening but “you just clear your head and go for it.”
6:39: “This Is Us” creator Dan Fogelman shared a delightfully awkward moment from last year’s ceremony on Twitter. We’ve all been there, right?
Last year at #GoldenGlobes Jennifer Aniston mouthed “You should win, I love you” to me from across room. I mouthed back how big a fan I was. We “air-talked” for 5 minutes until I looked to my right & realized she was talking to Jason Bateman the whole time.— Dan Fogelman (@Dan_Fogelman) January 6, 2019
I drank in shame.
The NBC tear-jerker isn’t nominated this year, but Justin Hartley, who plays Kevin Pearson on the show, will be presenting.
6:32: Michelle Yeoh appeared on the red carpet wearing the emerald ring that her “Crazy Rich Asians” character, the formidable Eleanor Young, gives her son so he can propose to his girlfriend. The ring is from Yeoh’s own jewelry collection, according to Vulture.
6:28: It’s worth calling attention to photos of these three humans cleaning up quite well (although Jameela Jamil’s character in “The Good Place,” Tahani Al-Jamil, always looks fabulous).
The NBC comedy, which stars Jamil, center, as well as William Jackson Harper, left, and Manny Jacinto, is nominated for best TV musical or comedy series, and lead actress Kristen Bell is nominated for best actress in a TV musical or comedy series.
6:23: Look who arrived at the Globes — will it be another Sean Spicer-Emmys moment?
Earlier, Anthony Scaramucci posted a video on Twitter of him and his wife, Deidre Ball, on the way to the show. They saw a gathering of people outside the venue and at first thought they were facing protesters, but it turns out it was a group of fans cheering for the stars.
"That’s nice. That’s unusual,” Ball said. “It’s usually: ‘We hate you, whoever. Scaramucci.’ ”
“No, we’re not getting any protesters tonight. We’re pretty much okay in Hollywood because you’re such a lefty, baby,” Scaramucci said. “Hollywood loves Mrs. Mooch.”
6:19: After a brief tour of the extensive red carpet, an E! anchor said that it is 902 feet long — apparently the length of three football fields.
6:11: Lin-Manuel Miranda won’t be on the red carpet or at the Golden Globes ceremony tonight, but he sent his well wishes from Puerto Rico via a recorded message. He’s there to play the title role in “Hamilton,” in a production that is intended in part to help revive Puerto Rico’s economy in the wake of Hurricane Maria.
Miranda — who is nominated for his role in “Mary Poppins Returns” for best actor in a motion picture, comedy or musical — also announced on the E! telecast that he’s raffling off 50 pairs of tickets to the closing night of Puerto Rico’s “Hamilton” production to raise money for Puerto Rican artists.
6:00: Idris Elba’s 17-year-old daughter, Isan, is this year’s Golden Globe ambassador (formerly known as Miss or Mr. Golden Globe). “She’s so confident. I’m just like so proud,” her famous father — in a vibrant three-piece tuxedo by British designer Ozwald Boateng — told Ryan Seacrest. “I can’t help but be a dad.”
Seacrest asked Elba about his recently announced Coachella gig. Elba, a longtime DJ, said he plays house music and promises to “rock” the annual music festival. “I can’t wait,” he said, calling the gig “a lifetime ambition.”
Will Isan be there? Yes, she told Seacrest. Her dad didn’t seem so sure.
5 p.m.: Awards season officially kicks off on Sunday night with the Golden Globes, also known as the show where everyone can (and typically does!) drink quite a bit. We already have many questions.
Will “A Star Is Born” dominate every drama category, as it has officially been deemed not-a-musical? Could “Green Book” and “Vice” overcome mediocre reviews to win lots of trophies? How will the best director winner (Alfonso Cuarón? Bradley Cooper?) set the stage for the Oscars? Will “The Americans” finally win best drama for its final season, or could newcomers “Killing Eve” or “Homecoming” take the crown?
The three-hour telecast, hosted by Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh, started at 8 p.m. Eastern time on NBC. Red-carpet coverage began at 6 p.m. on E!
