Remember last year when Brie Larson didn’t clap for alleged sexual harasser Casey Affleck when he won that Oscar? The Oscar Armie Hammer was salty about because he said they did Birth of A Nation director and acquitted alleged rapist Nate Parker wrong? That was slightly awkward, wasn’t it? I mean in a quaint little 2016 kind of way. But I have a feeling things are going to be 2017 sized awkward come awards season in the year of our lord 2018. For starters, E! News is reporting that a bunch of actresses are planning on making a fashion statement at the Golden Globes in January.
Amid sexual misconduct allegations in Hollywood, a source tells E! News that more than thirty female actresses who are attending and or presenting at the 2018 Golden Globes have vowed to wear all black to this year’s ceremony. The insider shares that it started as a small group but has grown and the women see it as a sign of solidarity.
I will bet my house, my cat, and all my future earnings that the 2018 Golden Globes will have the highest ratings in decades. It’s one thing to watch celebrities get drunk and kiss each others asses, but it’s quite another to see them turn on each other like a pack of wild dogs. This year, a dingo might actually eat Meryl Streep’s baby! On live TV!
Scheduled host Seth Myers has quite a job ahead of him playing to a room full of elephants. They probably had to bus in out-of-state lawyers to clear his jokes because all of the L.A. lawyers are busy defending the nominees. The patter, the acceptance speeches, the pans to the audience are all going to be pregnant with possibility and I am here for all of it. Here’s to the messiest GG ever!
