Last night, the 74th Golden Globe Awards honored the best in film and American television of 2016.
(Since I was a little girl, I have adored the glamour, the drama, the excitement of the movies!)
As always, there was controversy. fashion, and, most importantly, talent galore. If you didn't catch the awards, I've included a list of the winners at the bottom of this post.
While Moonlight won best picture (drama), La La Land seemed to steal the show, winning seven awards. Have you seen it? I plan to!
But before I share the winners, let's take a quick look at some of the actresses who made the HoneyGood.com best dressed list, many because of the grace that shines from within them.
Viola Davis via Los Angeles Times
Stunning in canary yellow, this talented 51 year old actress won the GG for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture for her role in Fences.
Fences is an incredibly poignant film and there is a scene, probably no longer than 60 seconds long, in which Viola steals the show. A must see!
Julianne Moore, via Harper's Bazaar
Julianne Moore, 56, seems to be on everyone's best dressed list for this gorgeous midnight blue sequin dress. Isn't it just beautiful?
Helen Mirren, via US Weekly
The talented, always inspiring, 71 year old Helen Mirren showcased her slim figure in a rather classic black gown with Harry Winston jewels.
Tracee Ellis Ross
“This is for all of the women, women of color, and colorful people whose stories, ideas, thoughts are not always considered worthy and valid and important. But I want you to know that I see you, we see you,” said Tracee, 44, in her acceptance speech for best actress in a TV series, comedy or musical.
I admire her talent and her message!
As if to prove that wisdom doesn't wait for 50, the lovely Emma Stone, 28, gave one of the most inspiring speeches last night when accepting her GG for best actress in a comedy or musical in La La Land. Here's a snippet...
"I think that hope and creativity are two of the most important things in the world, and that’s what this movie is about. So to any creative person who’s had a door slammed in their face, either metaphorically or physically, or actors who have had their auditions cut off, or have waited for a callback that didn’t come. Or anybody anywhere, really, that feels like giving up sometimes but finds it in themselves to get up, and keep moving forward, I share this with you. Thank you so much for this. Thank you."
And the winners are...
