The Golden Globes are long gone – a couple of days and we all know how nowadays everything that passes is so passé – yet the news deriving from the #goldenglobes2018 just won’t stop deriving.
The #goldenglobes versus #timesup.
The latter hashtag that seemed just like a ticking bomb prior to the ceremony was finally outrun by yet another hashtag that will stick with us for two years the least. Ladies and gentlemen, the world (a. k. a. the media or a. k. a. the illuminati lol or a. k. a. Beyoncé) gives us #oprah2020.
Man, the power hashtags have come to achieve! I wonder if hashtags had ever even thought of it as ever possible. The same question mark could come next to Oprah, too. The Oprah. And, they say, it all started with her speech at the Golden Globes upon winning The Cecil B. de Mille award.
Speaking your truth is the most powerful thing we all have!
***Viola Davis ?? – uh! – hotter than ever or is it just me? Other than that, kids listening to their mom giving a speech that started to pave the way towards presidency or so #oprah2020 says.***
For now, let’s get back to the timesup hashtag. It was everywhere, starting with the red carpet and ending with the… Not ending still. It is continuously deriving from everywhere. Remember Flubber? Same.
Natalie Portman put it like no other, though. Twice.
First ?? you know the face of the human being that is about to say something stingy? ??
So there’s the #timesup speeches on one hand. On the other hand, a whole new view arose.
100 French female writers, performers and academics who wrote an open letter deploring the wave of ‘denunciations’ that followed claims Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein raped and sexually assaulted women over decades. The women claimed that the ‘witch-hunt’ that has followed the accusations now threatens sexual freedom.
At the end of the day, each and every one of us chooses to believe in whatever we feel like and, therefore, it all comes down to each and every one of us fighting for a better, for a beautiful world in whatever way we can. Everyday.
Nevertheless, the Golden Globes red carpet is not the magic carpet we can all walk in our living rooms on, but we can, however, enjoy watching it. Better yet, the ones walking on it. Ha. Haha. Muhaha!
The 75th Golden Globes will go down in history as the moment the whole globe started to think about the possibility of Oprah becoming the first female president of the USA or as the moment everyone on the red carpet wore black. Same.
Through clothes only a revolution started and this is how clothes are never just clothes.
Live from the red carpet has become as important as the awards show itself.
Moreover, the interviews on the red carpet have become as important as the gowns. Observing the dynamic, the character, the smile, the light or the absence of it has become as interesting as finding out who the winners are.
It’s way rawer than the actual show.
Or is it just me? Roar, roar.
You know? ??
But then ??
The things people can not hide, but wish they could ???. And this is a fan speaking.
But then there’s trust and the host of the night ??
Ease, freedom and style ???
Fun ?? as long as… Guys don’t pluck your eyebrows, jees! Dave ??
And as long as you’re kind whenever, wherever with whomever even upon winning the Golden Globe for best actor in a Musical or Comedy for The Disaster Artist. Or especially then. James ??
***followed by a eeewwwrrr sound of the wrong button***
The Los Angeles Times spoke to Wiseau after the show, and it turns out his speech wouldn’t have been all that different from the sentiments he expresses at every live screening of his movie: “If a lot of people loved each other, the world would be a better place to live. See The Room, have fun, and enjoy life. The American Dream is alive, and it’s real.”
Good thing we all have Penélope to show us all how it’s done from getting out of the car till the red carpet. With love, grace and human vibes ??✌?
And Claire Foy having us all fall for her over and over again ??
Zoë Kravitz for being candy, starring in Big Little Lies and remind us all of Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet. And their love. Let love rule, hello!
Now. ***Drums!*** Jean-Marc Vallée. ***Drums again!*** Big Little Lies.
Nicole Kidman ??.
Not everybody’s perfect, though. No one, actually, is and that’s the beauty of it all and I am sure, somewhere in the silver linings, there must be one below. Somewhere. ??♀️
