Chadwick Boseman’s wife tears up as actor wins posthumous Golden Globe

Published

on

By

Washington [US], March 1 (ANI): As American actor Chadwick Boseman picked up a posthumous Golden Globe award, his wife Simone Ledward Boseman got teary-eyed and gave an emotional speech on behalf of the late actor.
Boseman bagged the Golden Globe award in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama category. Boseman won the accolade for his portrayal of Levee Green in ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom’. The George C Wolfe directorial marked Boseman’s final film role.
With this award win, Boseman became just the second posthumous winner in the category’s history.
“He would thank God. He would thank his parents. He would thank his ancestors for their guidance and their sacrifices. He would say something beautiful, something inspiring, something that would amplify that little voice inside of all of us that tells you, ‘You can,’ that tells you to keep going, that calls you back to what you are meant to be doing at this moment in history,” Variety quoted Ledward Boseman as saying.
“I don’t have his words, but we have to take all the moments to celebrate those we love, so thank you HFPA, for this opportunity to do exactly that. And, honey, you keep ’em coming. Thank you,” she added.
Boseman had passed away on August 18, 2020, of cancer at the age of 43. The actor had become a household name with his performance in the Marvel box-office blockbuster ‘Black Panther’.
The American actor also recently appeared in Spike Lee’s ‘Da Five Bloods’ and this particular role has gained quite a bit of attraction, generating Oscar buzz for the late actor.
Boseman hadn’t revealed his cancer diagnosis throughout the four-year-long battle and continued working throughout. It was later revealed by his team only after his demise.
The 78th Golden Globe Awards is taking place nearly two months later than normal, due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on cinema and television.
This is the first bi-coastal ceremony, with Tina Fey co-hosting from the Rainbow Room in New York City, and Amy Poehler co-hosting from The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California.
The nominees for Golden Globes were announced on February 3 and Jane Fonda and Norman Lear were announced as the recipients of the Cecil B. DeMille Award and the Carol Burnett Award, respectively. (ANI)

Golden Globes 2021: Sacha Baron Cohen takes dig at Giuliani, Trump during acceptance speech

Published

on

By

Washington [US], March 1 (ANI): After bagging two Golden Globes accolades, British actor and comedian Sacha Baron Cohen called out the “all-white” Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), and he also thanked Rudy Giuliani, who made a reluctant appearance in the ‘Borat Subsequent Flim’.
HFPA is the voting body behind the annual awards show and it has come under severe criticism this year for the lack of representation within its board and in terms of nominations as well.
Cohen’s mention of Rudy Giuliani was in reference to his cringe-worthy interview with Cohen’s co-star Maria Bakalova that also capped off a wild ‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm’.
‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm’ bagged Golden Globe 2021 award for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. Cohen also won the Golden Globe in the category of Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.
“Thank you to the all-white Hollywood Foreign Press. I have gotta say this movie couldn’t have been possible without my co-star, a fresh, new talent who came from nowhere and turned out to be a comedy genius,” Variety quoted Cohen as saying.
“I am talking, of course, about Rudy Giuliani. I mean, who can get more laughs out of one unzipping? Incredible. Our movie was just the beginning for him, Rudy went on to star in a string of comedy films. Hits like ‘Four Seasons Landscaping,’ ‘Hair Dye Another Day’ and the courtroom drama A Very Public Fart,” he added.
Cohen’s win came 15 years after winning the same accolade for the 2006 mockumentary ‘Borat’, and as a result, the British actor is now the first person in the history of Golden Globes to win two awards for the same film character, Kazakh journalist Borat Sagdiyev.
In his speech for the best actor win, Cohen poked fun at former US President Donald Trump’s refusal to accept the presidential election results.
“Hold on, Donald Trump is contesting the result. He’s claiming that a lot of dead people voted, which is a very rude thing to say about the HFPA,” said Cohen.
The 78th Golden Globe Awards took place nearly two months later than normal, due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on cinema and television.
This was the first bi-coastal ceremony, with Tina Fey co-hosting from the Rainbow Room in New York City, and Amy Poehler co-hosting from The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California.
The nominees for Golden Globes were announced on February 3 and Jane Fonda and Norman Lear were announced as the recipients of the Cecil B. DeMille Award and the Carol Burnett Award, respectively. (ANI)

By

Washington [US], March 1 (ANI): American drama film ‘Nomadland’ has won the Golden Globen 2021 award for Best Motion Picture – Drama.
‘Nomadland’ is a 2020 American drama film directed, written, and edited by Chloe Zhao. It stars Frances McDormand as a woman who leaves home to travel around the American West.
The film is based on the 2017 non-fiction book ‘Nomadland: Surviving America’ in the Twenty-First Century by Jessica Bruder.
During the ceremony, Chloe Zhao also took home the Golden Globe for best director for ‘Nomadland’, making her the second woman ever to win for helming, and the first woman of colour to win in the category.
Zhao was up against Emerald Fennell (Promising Young Woman), Regina King (One Night in Miami), David Fincher (Mank), and Aaron Sorkin (The Trial of the Chicago 7).
‘Nomadland’ received four nominations, including Zhao for best screenplay, an actress in a drama for McDormand, and best picture drama. Zhao had adapted it from Jessica Bruder’s 2017 nonfiction book of the same name.
Zhao is only the second woman to win a Golden Globe for director: Barbra Streisand won in 1984 for ‘Yentl’. Zhao is also the first director of Asian descent to win a Globe since Ang Lee won for 2005’s ‘Brokeback Mountain’. Lee also won for 2000’s ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’.
The 78th Golden Globe Awards is taking place nearly two months later than normal, due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on cinema and television.
This is the first bi-coastal ceremony, with Tina Fey co-hosting from the Rainbow Room in New York City, and Amy Poehler co-hosting from The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California.

By

Washington [US], March 1 (ANI): Actor-singer Andra Day took home the Golden Globe for best actress in a motion picture (drama), for her incredible performance in the Hulu film ‘The United States vs. Billie Holiday’.
Day made history at this year’s Golden Globes as she became the only second Black woman ever to win this award after Whoopi Goldberg did 35 years ago for ‘The Color Purple’, reported Variety.
Day was nominated with Viola Davis (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom), Vanessa Kirby (Pieces of a Woman), Frances McDormand (Nomadland), and Carey Mulligan (Promising Young Woman).
In her acceptance speech surrounded by her family and friends, Day thanked “the amazing transformative dynamic Billie Holiday, who just just transformed me with this role and with her presence and with her spirit.”
This marks Day’s first acting nomination and win at the Globes, and she is the first winner in this category for a movie that debuted on a streaming service. Day, who started her career as a Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter, was also nominated with Raphael Saadiq for best original song (Tigress and Tweed). However, ‘Io si’, from ‘The Life Ahead’ won that award.
‘The United States vs. Billie Holiday’, directed by Lee Daniels from a script by playwright Suzan-Lori Parks, dramatises the final years in the life of Holiday, the renowned jazz singer who faced relentless persecution from the U.S. government over her performance of the song ‘Strange Fruit’, about the horrors of lynching.
Meanwhile, the 78th Golden Globe Awards is taking place nearly two months later than normal, due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on cinema and television.
This is the first bi-coastal ceremony, with Tina Fey hosting from the Rainbow Room in New York City, and Amy Poehler hosting from The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California.
The nominees for Golden Globes were announced on February 3 and Jane Fonda and Norman Lear were announced as the recipients of the Cecil B. DeMille Award and the Carol Burnett Award, respectively.
