Golden Globes winners 2019
January 6, 2019 - Best picture went to “Bohemian Rhapsody” while Christian Bale thanked Satan for inspiration in playing former Vice President Dick Cheney in Adam McKay’s “Vice” at the 76th Golden Globe Awards in Hollywood.
Netflix’s Oscar hopeful, Alfonso Cuaron’s memory-drenched masterwork “Roma” won the best director and the Mexican-born filmmaker’s movie won best foreign language film. Best supporting actress in a motion picture went to the Oscar front-runner Regina King for her matriarch of Barry Jenkins’ James Baldwin adaptation “If Beale Street Could Talk.”
The Golden Globes are awarded by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. HEPA is a non-profit journalistic organisation, launched by several Los Angeles-based, foreign-born journalists in 1943. Their first awards were given out the following year in the hopes of winning foreign journalists the same access to studios, stars, and other Hollywood figures as their local, American press peers.
For Oscar watchers, the Globes’ leading actor and actress awards for film dramas have tended to line up with Academy Award winners by between 70 and 90 per cent over the past two decades.
