Golden Globe Winners

Best Drama Motion Picture

three billboards outside ebbing missouri

Who won?

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Who’s involved?

Directed by Martin McDonagh (the genius behind In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths) with Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell – who kinda came outta nowhere and stole the show when he won best supporting actor. Not that we’re complaining.

What happens?

What DOESN’T happen?

#ProtestsDOMakeADifference! Mildred Hayes is grieving the cruel murder of her teenage daughter, and she’s pretty pissed off at the fact that no arrests have been made. Get your sh*t together, Chief Willoughby! If you’re not gonna do anything, she will. It’s an emotional ride that you won’t want to get off of.

Who did they beat?

Dunkirk
The Post
The Shape of Water
Call Me by Your Name

Best Musical or Comedy Motion Picture

lady bird

Who won?

Lady Bird

Who’s involved?

Lady Bird is directed by the incredible Greta Gerwig,  and stars Saoirse Ronan, Lucas Hedges, and Call Me by Your Name’s Timothée Chalamet… we’re pretty sure that should be convincing enough.

What happens?

Lady Bird (it’s her given name, given by herself, to herself) is super fed up of Sacramento… like, how boring can one place be? If the town won’t fix itself up and fill itself with culture, diversity, and adventure, then she’ll go and find it elsewhere.  

Who did they beat?

The Disaster Artist
Get Out
The Greatest Showman
I, Tonya

Best Animated Feature Film

coco

Who won?

Coco

Who’s involved?

Directed by Lee Unkrich (Monsters Inc., Finding Nemo, Toy Story 3…) proves he knows EXACTLY how to make you emotional AF, along with Gael García Bernal (Y Tu Mamá También) and Benjamin Bratt (Miss Congeniality – “Listen to me, you old fruitcake!”).

What happens?

In a family where music is forbidden (we know, right? What did they do when they showered?) Miguel is willing to do whatever it takes to break free and pursue a career in music. Including stealing from the dead, getting cursed, and teaming up with a skeleton.

… Yeah. It gets wild.

Best Picture

Who won?

the shape of water

The Shape of Water

Who’s involved?

Directed by the infamous Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy, Crimson Peak) starring the basically flawless Sally Hawkins (Maudie, Paddington) and Doug Jones (Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth)

What happens?

A woman falls in love with a fishy man (and we don’t mean suspicious…) but they encounter 1000 obstacles (such as only being able to communicate through sign language) and it’s like, just let them live!

Think Shrek, Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid all in one film.
