First of all, you MUST watch Meryl Streep's passionate speech against Trump — never named — in accepting her Cecil B. DeMille Award at tonight's Golden Globes. This is why I will always resist when people who should and sometimes do know better complain about artists and actors voicing their political views. Why should this insightful and articulate a voice be silent?
And she gave the speech with her voice going in and out, following all her grieving for her late buddy Carrie Fisher.
Instantly iconic. #standwithstreep
Trump's response? He called her a “Hillary lover.” Gee, what other phrase was he covertly echoing?
The best news for LGBTQ filmmakers and audiences is that the little (gay) drama that could, Moonlight, took home the evening's top honor, Best Motion Picture - Drama. You will recall that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (and everyone else but the Oscars) honored the gay drama Brokeback Mountain over 10 years ago, too.
La La Land won big, taking home Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy and taking awards for its stars, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, too. It also won for Score and Song, not to mention Director.
