TRENDIN' Oprah Brings Down The House

 

Tristan's Take: I made some pancakes and watched it with my dogs... I thought it was so cool how the big stars brought activists as their dates... actress Michelle Williams brought Tanara Burke who is the founder of the #MeToo movement...Emma Watson brought Marai Larasi who has dedicated her life to ending violence against women and girls... It was crazy when celebs on the red carpet were being interviewed by E! & a lot of people expressed their support for host Cat Sadler who just quit because she found out she was making a lot less than her male co-host. Nice job celebs! It needed to be done!  It was so fun to see Oprah there with Steadman! She looked beautiful! Nicole Kidman won and she told her husband Keith Urban that every time her cheek is against his everything melts away and it was just so romantic!

*The female-led Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and Big Little Lies were the big winners at Sunday's Golden Globes Awards, which was dominated by the recent sexual misconduct allegations in Hollywood.

*Three Billboards... took home four trophies -- including Best Movie Drama, Best Actress in a Drama for Frances McDormand and Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture for Sam Rockwell.

*Big Little Lies also won four trophies: Best Limited TV Series and acting honors for Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern and Alexander Skarsgard.

*Other winners were Lady Bird (Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy), The Handmaid’s Tale (Best Television Series – Drama) and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (Best TV Series – Musical or Comedy). All the movies and TV shows that won were female-led.

*This Is Us star Sterling K. Brown became the first black actor ever to win the Golden Globes award for Best Actor in a Television Series - Drama,

*Other winners in the acting categories included Gary Oldman (Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama, Darkest Hour), James Franco (Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, The Disaster Artist) Saoirse [pr: SIR-shuh] Ronan (Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, Lady Bird), Elisabeth Moss (Actress in a TV Series – Drama, The Handmaid’s Tale) and Rachel Brosnahan (Actress in a TV series – Musical or Comedy, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel).

*Guillermo del Toro was named best director for his fantasy flick The Shape of Water, which came into the night with the most nominations with seven.

*Host Seth Meyers got right to night's big topic of sexual misconduct by opening the show with the line: “Good evening, ladies and remaining gentlemen.”

*But it was Oprah Winfrey who stole the show with a rousing speech about sexual harassment and assault. The mogul, who received the Cecil B. DeMille Award for Lifetime Achievement, praised the women who have come forward with their #MeToo stories and told victims that "speaking your truth is the most powerful tool you all have."   Before receiving a standing ovation, Oprah said, "For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dared to speak the truth to the power of those men. But their time is up. Their time is up."

*The red carpet was full of black gowns, which were worn as a statement of solidarity with victims of sexual misconduct. Many actresses and actors also wore pins that read "Time's Up" — the name of a new movement to fight sexual harassment and assault. Several actresses, including Meryl Streepand Emma  Stone, even brought activists to the show as their guests.

OTHER HIGHLIGHTS:

*After winning his best actor trophy, James Franco brought up Tommy Wiseau, the actor/director he portrays in The Disaster Artist.

*Frances McDormand and Aziz Ansari both got bleeped during their acceptance speeches.

*101-year-old acting legend Kirk Douglas presented the award for Best Motion Picture Screenplay with his daughter-in-law Catherine Zeta-Jones.

*While presenting the best director award, Natalie Portman made a point of saying that all the nominees were men.

*Allison Janney thanked disgraced Olympic skater Tonya Harding during her acceptance speech.

*On the red carpet, Debra Messing called out E! over former host Catt Sadler’s pay inequality dispute as the Will and Grace star was being interviewed by E!

=================================

It was another kind of game that got Kit Harington into trouble Friday.

The Game of Thrones star got kicked out of a New York City bar after he tried to play a round of pool but ended up arguing with his fellow patrons. In a video obtained by TMZ, the actor can be seen banging on the table and grabbing at pool cues.

An eyewitness tells TMZ Kit left but returned and had to be physically escorted out of the bar.

Harington apparently sobered up by Sunday, when he presented an award at the Golden Globes without incident.
