Sex scandal fallout expected to dominate Hollywood awards — Golden Globes

Oscars Affleck

Will And Grace actress Debra Messing during her red carpet interview with E! Meryl Streep, Amy Poehler, Emma Watson and Michelle Williams brought various gender and racial activists as their plus-one to the ceremony.

It was a night of unusually powerful speeches, whether long or short, that touched eloquently on the #MeToo moment. "They said, 'Hey, how'd you like to come and be judged by some of the most powerful people in Hollywood?' And they said, 'Hm, where is it?' And they said, 'It's at a hotel.' Long story short, I'm your host tonight". He has also been accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct, though he has vehemently denied the allegations. And she went further: "May we teach our children", she said, "that speaking out without the fear of retribution is our culture's new North Star".

King said: "She loves this country and would like to be of service in some way". "Here are the all-male nominees", she exclaimed, leaving co-host Ron Howard squirming.

"I do have my Time's Up button, so [I'm] standing in solidarity with all these other women", she reassured ET. That was 1984 (for Yentl), that was 34 years ago.

"Simpler times", Meyers said wistfully.

"This was the year of big little lies and get out, and also the TV series Big Little Lies'and the movie Get Out". Allison Janney took best supporting actress in a comedy for the Tonya Harding tale I, Tonya. Exasperated, Streisand held up both of her arms and expressed disbelief at a woman's not winning for a director role in more than 34 years. "We're here for the work".

Winfrey was presented the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement at the 2018 Golden Globes and used the platform to give a history-making speech.

"So I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon", Winfrey continued. The power of the #MeToo movement has transcended social media, and has even become the archetypical ingredient in spurring other movements like Time's Up, which was founded on the first day of 2018 with its own website and focuses on women's rights, feminism, sexual harassment and sexual assault. Director Ava DuVernay later wrote on Twitter that the room was "still vibrating like electricity from that speech". She overcame enormous difficulties and traumas that most of us will never have to deal with.

Flu-related deaths in Travis County rise to 11
A severe flu outbreak is filling Alabama hospitals and emergency rooms, prompting the governor to declare a state of emergency. There haven't been any deaths of our youngest Iowans, which is a sign that parents are vaccinating early on in childhood.

The men showed up, as they often do to awards shows, dressed in black suits and tuxedos. Among the greatest I've seen, period. From the red carpet to the winners table, men took a backseat.

"It also doesn't pay well", Winfrey said.

"If I were hosting the Golden Globes this weekend, I wouldn't be courageous enough to do the joke I've just thought of", Gervais said Wednesday. "I miss Catt Sadler".

And Ryan Seacrest, the E! "I'm glad her voice is leading us in America".

She was joking there, too.

Even, the US President's daughter Ivanka Trump is in awe of the speech and has totally endorsed Oprah's Golden Globes addressal. They threatened to kill her if she ever told anyone, but her story was reported to the NAACP where a young worker by the name of Rosa Parks became the lead investigator on her case and together they sought justice.

He won for the Cold War-era fantasy "The Shape of Water". The emotional Mexican-born filmmaker wiped back tears and managed to quiet the music that urged him offstage.
