Ah, the Golden Globes: the awards show that heralds the beginning of award-show season. Amy Poehler and Tina Fey hosted for the third — and their final — consecutive year, wrapping up a season that saw plenty of gay and queer content nominated.
Transparent was head and shoulders above the rest, winning for best television comedy. Jeffrey Tambor, in his role as trans woman Maura Pfefferman, won for best television actor. In his acceptance speech, Tambor dedicated his performance to the transgender community, thanking them for their inspiration and patience.
The other big win, for best supporting television actor, went to Matt Bomer for his role in The Normal Heart. Bomer thanked director Ryan Murphy, his husband and his three children and paid tribute to those lost to HIV and AIDS. The Normal Heart was also nominated for best mini-series for television, and Mark Ruffalo was nominated for best actor in a mini-series.
The Imitation Game was nominated for several awards, including for best screenplay, best motion picture, best supporting actress for Keira Knightley and best actor for Benedict Cumberbatch.
Other notable events worth mentioning from the evening:
Model Chrissy Teigen, the wife of John Legend, is an awkward crier.
Fey and Poehler made Bill Cosby jokes that some people did not like.
Everyone in attendance was sweaty and uncomfortable. Hopefully the Oscars will have better ventilation.
