So the Award Season is upon us (Hollywood), and anyone who knows me knows these are my favourite part of the year. Last night was the 74th annual Golden Globe Awards that saw stars of movie and television in Hollywood were assembled in Beverly Hills Hilton Hotel for the big night of the awards season. I, for one liked the nominations and felt the awards could have gone no other way. Here is a rundown of what went down, what I expected, who and what movie won and my fave moments of the night.
The first award of the night for Best supporting actor in a motion Picture went to Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass) for his role in “Nocturnal Animals”. Priyanka Chopra and Jeffrey Dean Morgan handed out the next award for Best Actor in a Television Series to Billy Bob Thornton for his role in “Goliath”.

If you watched the awards last night, let me know what were your favourite wins and losses of the night. I personally would have loved Deadpool to win the Best Motion Picture: Musical or Comedy and Ryan Reynolds for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture: Musical or Comedy but still Ryan Gosling deserved it.
