The 74th Golden Globes were held on January 8, 2016 and it was a night full of beautiful people, Jimmy Fallon jokes, and the honoring of true talent in Hollywood. Of course, with the inauguration of Donald J. Trump looming ahead, the night also had a political tone.
Some of the other winners included Emma Stone for best actress in La La Land. And, of course, Best Motion Picture went to La La Land. One of the main highlights of the night though, was when Viola Davis presented Meryl Streep with an award she highly deserved, the Golden Globe Lifetime Achievement Award.
Looking glamorous as usual, the actress humbly accepted her award and gave a powerful speech touching on current issues. She began her speech by saying: “Just to pick up on what Hugh Laurie said, you and all of us in this room really belong to the most vilified segments in American society right now. Think about it, Hollywood, foreigners, and the press.” With this opening statement, she set the political tone for the rest of her speech.
