Last night kicked off the award season for 2020 with the 77th Annual Golden Globes with the likes of Tom Hanks, Scarlett Johansson and Leonardo DiCaprio all in attendance! Here we will take a look at some of the winners of last night prestigious awards as our team has put together some of the top awards of the night for the drama category!
Best Actor; in a Motion Picture- Drama
Joaquin Phoenix - Joker
Joaquin took on the role of a character that has been referred to as; one of the most disturbed characters in modern literature. Reviews have piled in for Phoenix' portrayal of the Joker, 'A haunting performance with the best character development I have ever seen' (IMDB). Joaquin joins the likes of Rami Malek and Gary Oldman as winners of the Best Actor category in the Golden Globes history books.
Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role- Any Motion Picture
Laura Dern- Marriage Story
Laura spoke of her performance as the divorce lawyer as 'long over due' and talked of giving a 'voice to the voiceless' in her speech. Marriage Story has been depicted as the closest look into a real divorce in modern drama, which has hit close to home for numerous viewers.
Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role- Any Motion Picture
Brad Pitt- Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood
This makes Pitt's first Golden Globe win in the same category since 1996 for Twelve Monkeys. Brad had nothing but admiration for his co-star Leonardo DiCaprio throughout his speech. He even made a joke about sharing a 'raft' with his co-star, with reference to the Titanic movie.
Sam Mendes- 1917
1917 tells the story of two young British soldiers who must deliver a life saving message deep in enemy lines, which will stop 1600 men and one of the soldiers' brothers walking into a deadly trap.
'A technical and visual triumph' viewers have been left in awe of this war drama.
We see it only fitting that Sam Mendes is recognised for his efforts in creating this incredible film.
