Golden Globes Winners

The winners of the HFPA's 75th 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 Seth Meyers. Hopefully this will be an exciting show, as the HFPA is often very 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 2017, including Get Out, The Shape of Water, Dunkirk and Call Me By Your Name, of course, and I'm curious to find out which films/actors the HFPA fell for this time. Let's see who wins big.

Thoughts: Coco was robbed.

CECIL B. DEMILLE LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT
Winner! Oprah Winfrey

Final Thoughts: Well, I can't say I am totally satisfied but there were a few nice surprises this year. I'm not the biggest fan of Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, it is an intelligent and enjoyable film but I don't think it's the best of the year. Definitely not. Critics seem to love it, which is why I'm not surprised the HFPA had it win so much. That said, I am happy about Guillermo del Toro and Alexandre Desplat winning for The Shape of Water. Frances McDormand is a true badass. Gary Oldman deserved to win. So did Saoirse Ronan and Allison Janney. And you know, I'm fine with James Franco winning as well - because he is quite impressive in The Disaster Artist and got totally lost playing Tommy Wiseau. I'm also very surprised by In the Fade winning, but it's a good film. Nothing really upset me, so overall it's okay but I'm not that satisfied.

What do you think of the 2018 winners? How is the show this year with Seth Meyers? Entertaining? Are these winners an early indicator for Oscars, or not? What favorite movies from 2017 are you rooting for?
