Golden Globes TV awards 2018 echo show’s theme of empowerment

The Globes set the tone immediately for its television awards, giving out its first three honors to actresses. Honors given to Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs Maisel bucked that trend. “Margaret Atwood, this is for you, and for all of the women who came before you and after you who were brave enough to speak out about tolerance and injustice,” she said. Moss, in her acceptance speech, quoted novelist Margaret Atwood, whose book provides the basis for the series. “It makes it that much more difficult to dismiss me, or dismiss anybody who looks like me,” Brown said. He won a category stocked with heavyweight actors — Robert DeNiro, Jude Law, Geoffrey Rush and Kyle MacLachlan. Elisabeth Moss, honored as best actress in a drama for her role in The Handmaid’s Tale, typified that response. The Globes also took on a new role — home of reruns. Brown of NBC’s This is Us was a repeat winner from the Emmys. “Every check cleared,” she said. Five Globes went to cable networks, five went to streaming services while NBC earned the lone honor for broadcast television. Besides the awards for Big Little Lies and The Handmaid’s Tale, Sterling K. Ewan McGregor of Fargo won the best supporting actor award for a limited series. Witherspoon, one of the show’s producers, spoke about women who had been silenced by harassment and abuse when Big Little Lies was honored as best limited series. Rachel Brosnahan won best comic actress for portraying a 1950s housewife who pursues a career in comedy, and the series won the Globe for best comedy. The Globes have developed a reputation for often championing work before other awards shows or before it is widely known among the public. Despite his 2016 Emmy, Ansari seemed surprised to pick up the Globe for his role in Netflix’s Master of None — or maybe that’s further evidence that he’s a good actor. Laura Dern won for supporting actress, and she referenced her role in dealing with an abused child. All of them talked about Hollywood’s responsibility to tell stories about strong women. HBO’s Big Little Lies led the way with four television Golden Globes, just like the show did at the Emmys. “Time is up,” Witherspoon said. Nicole Kidman beat out her co-star, Reese Witherspoon, as the winner for best actress in a limited series for Big Little Lies, HBO’s disturbing tale of suburban life in California. Seven of the 11 television awards went to actors or programs that were honored with Emmys four months ago. “We couldn’t ask for a better partner.”
Holding the flag for network television, Brown of NBC’s This is Us won best actor in a drama. He said he was grateful to the series’ creator for making a character specifically written for a black man. “I genuinely didn’t think I was going to win because all of the web sites said I was going to lose,” he said. “May we teach our children that speaking out without the fear of retribution is our culture’s new North Star,” Dern said.
