Aziz Ansari won his first Golden Globe for best actor in a comedy for "Master of None", his series about the adventures of a struggling NY actor.
In the evening's first award, Nicole Kidman of HBO's Big Little Lies took best actress in a limited series or TV movie. Trust me, the women in this room tonight are not here for the food.
"Let's keep the conversation alive."
The focus on women was reflected in the big winners of the night. "It's a gay coming-of-age film -", Myers announced at one point, only to have Billy Eichner interrupt", - said Kevin Spacey.'you lost me at 'of age'". "We lived in the gaps between the stories".
The show is nominated for best drama TV series, best actress in a drama TV series for Elizabeth Moss, and best supporting actress in a TV series for Ann Dowd.
Elisabeth Moss' Golden Globe win was made "more special" by the Time's Up movement. He credited the show's cast.
If this was supposed to be a fashion blackout to express support for victims of abuse and sexual harassment, I'm not clear about what a dress like this one says either. "Unfortunately, we're reminded every day how truly relevant Margaret Atwood's work is".
Moss said "The Handmaid's Tale's" dystopian setting resonates with viewers and gives a voice to women. May we also, please, protect and employ them.
"This is a show led by a woman".
"Big Little Lies", "This Is Us" and "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" won Golden Globes last night and are now available for streaming. She said the win would not have been possible without the "mastery" of Vallee and writer David E. Kelly. Speaking of the abusers, she declared, "Their time is up". The series itself was up for Best Drama (losing to The Crown), while Metz was joined by Mandy Moore in the Best Supporting Actress category, though both women ended up losing out to Olivia Colman. "And we are writing them ourselves". We couldn't have found a better partner. "It would've really sucked to lose two of these in a row", quipped Ansari. We wish we could just insert Oprah's entire acceptance speech because she's basically announcing her campaign for presidency.
