Best Moments and Winners At The 71st Golden Globe Awards
By Pete Allman
This year's 71st Golden Globe Awards will certainly be remembered as an inspirational evening. All of Hollywood stars stepped out for this memorable event. Writers of this particular show had Tina Fey and Amy Pohler get a little edgy with their comedy, yet it was all in good fun. Both ladies worked out their timing perfectly.
Some of the highlights of the evenings telecast on NBC were Jacqueline Bisset, who won Best Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television for "Dancing On The Edge". An emotional Bisset stated, "I've been nominated 5 times and now, after 47 years, I'm so happy that I did something for the BBC." She added, "I want people who will give me joy. You have to learn to forgive yourself and others to do so".
Another inspirational statement came from Bono, who won Best Original Song Motion Picture with "Ordinary Love", Mandela Long Walk To Freedom. This was indeed personal for Bono, as the band members had been working with President Mandela, when they were teenagers in High School. Bono said Mandela could have let out his rage, after being released from prison, but rather chose to use love to conquer segregation and master equality for all nationalities.
Steve McQueen's film "12 Years of Slave" was the most nominated drama of the evening. But then again, we must not forget Woody Allen, who won The Cecil B DeMille Award, introduced by his dear friend, Diane Keaton. Woody Allen wrote, directed and starred in 27 of his films. He dared to take a risk, when the studios didn't. As a result, Woody Allen will be one of those creative people that will go down in history.
