And the Golden Globe for Best Actress lands in seven-time nominee Frances McDormand's kitty.
The actress is absolutely riveting as a single mother raging about her teenage daughter's violent rape and murder in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. In his review Boston Globe's Ty Burr writes, "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is quite a show and the best evidence yet that someone, somewhere, should erect a statue of Frances McDormand."
Her speech packs in quite a punch as well.
"As many of you know, I keep my politics private. But it was really great to be in this room and to be part of a tectonic (shift) in our industry power structure. Trust me, the women in this room tonight are not here for the food. Were here for the work."
Quite a night for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, which is, as it turns out, Golden Globes' Best Film of the year as well.
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and small screen's Big Little Lies and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel fared very well. But the high on statement, low on wit, the award ceremony itself turned out to be a strictly mediocre affair.
And that's a wrap for now. Watch this space for the big daddy of award ceremonies--the Oscars.
