2017 Golden Globe Awards Winners - 'Moonlight' & 'La La Land' Win

January 8, 2017

Golden Globes Winners

The winners of the HFPA's 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards, the precursor to the Academy Awards, have been announced tonight at a ceremony held at The Beverly Hilton hotel, hosted by late night comedian Jimmy Fallon. Hopefully this will be a lively show, as the HFPA can be quite boring. Our list below will be updated with all film-related winners as they're revealed during the live broadcast. The nominees featured a lots of great films from 2016, including Moonlight, La La Land, Hacksaw Ridge and Deadpool, of course, and I'm interested to find out which films/actors the HFPA fell for this time. Let's see who the winners are.

The 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards are being held at The Beverly Hilton as hosted by Jimmy Fallon with a live telecast on NBC. See the full list of 2017 film winners below. Winners highlighted in BOLD.

Hacksaw Ridge
Hell or High Water
Manchester by the Sea
Winner! Moonlight

Thoughts: Yes! Finally! A sweet victory for Moonlight here, so glad both La La and this get recognized.

Moonlight Wins Best Drama

Winner! Casey Affleck - Manchester by the Sea
Joel Edgerton - Loving
Andrew Garfield - Hacksaw Ridge
Viggo Mortensen - Captain Fantastic
Denzel Washington - Fences

Thoughts: Casey is a very talented actor, a deserving win for an outstanding film. See it if you haven't yet.

Amy Adams - Arrival
Jessica Chastain - Miss Sloane
Winner! Isabelle Huppert - Elle
Ruth Negga - Loving
Natalie Portman - Jackie

Thoughts: Isabelle Huppert is a legend! Great to see her win, even for a controversial film. She's fantastic.

Isabelle Huppert - Golden Globe Winner

20th Century Women
Florence Foster Jenkins
Winner! La La Land
Sing Street

Thoughts: And it sweeps! 7 wins for La La Land. My favorite movie of the year, yes it is that good, yes it deserves most of these awards. I'm not complaining, I'm happy.

Colin Farrell - The Lobster
Winner! Ryan Gosling - La La Land
Hugh Grant - Florence Foster Jenkins
Jonah Hill - War Dogs
Ryan Reynolds - Deadpool

Thoughts: Yay! A great win for Gosling, I'm happy for La La Land to keep winning awards.

Annette Bening - 20th Century Women
Lily Collins - Rules Don't Apply
Hailee Steinfeld - The Edge of Seventeen
Winner! Emma Stone - La La Land
Meryl Streep - Florence Foster Jenkins

Divines (France)
Winner! Elle (France)
Neruda (Chile)
The Salesman (Iran/France)
Toni Erdmann (Germany)

Director Paul Verhoeven - Golden Globe Winner

Thoughts: I do like Elle, but not everyone does. Though it should've been Toni Erdmann winning.

Kubo and the Two Strings
My Life as a Zucchini
Winner! Zootopia

Thoughts: Good movie, but not my pick. Kubo or Zucchini really should've won, they're even better.

Mahershala Ali - Moonlight
Jeff Bridges - Hell or High Water
Simon Helberg - Florence Foster Jenkins
Dev Patel - Lion
Winner! Aaron Taylor-Johnson - Nocturnal Animals

Thoughts: Wait, what? Alright, but we should also be giving this to Michael Shannon, too. Right?

Winner! Viola Davis - Fences
Naomie Harris - Moonlight
Nicole Kidman - Lion
Octavia Spencer - Hidden Figures
Michelle Williams - Manchester by the Sea

Viola Davis - Golden Globe Winner

Winner! Damien Chazelle - La La Land
Tom Ford - Nocturnal Animals
Mel Gibson - Hacksaw Ridge
Barry Jenkins - Moonlight
Kenneth Lonergan - Manchester by the Sea

Thoughts: More wins for La La Land! All of the nominees are great, but I'm happy for Chazelle.

Damien Chazelle - Golden Globe Winner

Winner! La La Land
Nocturnal Animals
Manchester by the Sea
Hell or High Water

Thoughts: La La Land is on a roll, likely going to sweep the whole show. For screenplay? Okay.

Nicholas Britell - Moonlight
Winner! Justin Hurwitz - La La Land
Jóhann Jóhannsson - Arrival
Volker Bertelmann, Dustin O'Halloran - Lion
Benjamin Wallfisch, Pharrell Williams, Hans Zimmer - Hidden Figures

Thoughts: Go La La Land! Love this movie, happy for anything/everything it wins.

"Can't Stop The Feeling!" from Trolls
Winner! "City of Stars" from La La Land
"Faith" from Sing
"Gold" from Gold
"How Far I'll Go" from Moana

Winner! Meryl Streep

Final Thoughts: What a night! Go La La Land!! I love this movie so much, I'm very happy it was the big winner. And I love Moonlight! Both of these movies winning is wonderful, I wish we could do this at the Oscars, too. I'm happy overall with almost every winner except for a few of them that seem a bit odd. Best Supporting Actor should've gone to Mahershala Ali or Dev Patel, not Aaron; the Best Foreign Language Film is Toni Erdmann hands down (though I do also like Elle); and Natalie Portman should've won for Best Actress, but she still has a shot at the Oscar. Besides that, between La La Land winning and two other wins for Manchester by the Sea and Moonlight, this isn't that bad. These three are the best movies of the year.

What do you think of the 2017 winners? How is the show this year with Jimmy Fallon? Any better? Are these winners an early indicator for Oscars, or not? What favorite movies from 2016 are you rooting for?

    • Haven't seen Fences yet. I interviewed Emma Stone! All my thoughts about her are there ha. And I did write something for Isabelle Huppert.
      • Håkan
        Thanks for your respons! Then I understand. And so you know, I was to early with my message, cause you haden't wrote about Isabelle Huppert when I wrote.
    Ali losing to Taylor-Johnson elicited a violent, "NO!!" from me. I could not believe it. Otherwise, no surprises, and that was a good thing!

      My thoughts exactly! It was a good show minus Jimmy Fallon.
