The Golden Globes 2019 saw many winners and two big losers. “Bohemian Rhapsody” and Glenn Close provided surprises.
There have been a few surprises at the Golden Globe Awards 2019. As one of the big favorites in the movie categories, the music drama “A Star is Born” by Bradley Cooper (44) went into the race for the coveted prizes. But only the song “Shallow”, which Cooper and his co-star Lady Gaga (32) sing in the band, has been awarded as “Best Film Song”. In the important categories, others have prevailed.
Glenn Close steals the show from Lady Gaga
Quite surprisingly, “Bohemian Rhapsody” won the award for “Best Film Drama” and thus overshadowed the favored band “A Star Is Born”. “Bohemian Rhapsody” is about the rock band Queen, her music and her lead singer Freddie Mercury (1946-1991). This is embodied in the movie Rami Malek (37, “Mr. Robot”), which was honored as “Best Actor – Drama”. But everyone expected that.
Malek’s female counterpart in the category “Best Actress – Drama” is surprisingly Glenn Close (71). She has been awarded the prize for her role in “The Nobel Peace Prize Wife”, thus outdoing the equally nominated Lady Gaga .
Bradley Cooper has also watched Mexican director Alfonso Cuarón (57) accept the award for “Best Director” for his work “Roma”. The drama has also been awarded the title of “Best Foreign Language Film”, which made the German contribution “Werk ohne Autor” empty. The awards for “Best Animated Film” and “Best Film Music” have received “Spider-Man: A New Universe” and “Departure to the Moon”. But these are not all winners.
Great pleasure with the creators of “Green Book”
The award for “Best Film – Comedy or Musical” is “Green Book – A Special Friendship” secured. The film’s writers Nick Vallelonga, Brian Currie and Peter Farrelly also enjoyed the Globe in the Best Screenplay category. Oscar winner Mahershala Ali (44) has won the most awards in the film’s “Best Supporting Actor” category – the third prize for “Green Book”.
As “Best Supporting Actress” Regina King (47) has been honored in “Beale Street”. Olivia Colman (44) for “The Favorite – Intrigue and Madness” and Christian Bale (44) for “Vice – The Second Man” have secured the leading cast in Comedy or Musical awards. “Vice” has thus dusted only one of the six possible awards and counts as “A Star Is Born” as the loser of the evening.
