Pop Culture with Tatiana

post-header

First I want to congratulate everyone for making it through 2020, it was a tough one. And while there are probably a long list of people you might want to thank for getting you to this point, the real hero has been television. After a year mostly spent at home, television gave us period dramas, a remix of Gossip Girl, a cunning French gentleman thief, a chess wiz, a very mentally disturbed group of superheroes, the latest season of “The Crown” and reminded us how awesome Michael Jordan was!

Of course there’s so much more. The Golden Globes do not just celebrate television, they celebrate films as well, and even though the big blockbusters were not released this year as theatres are still closed, a few gems were made available for streaming.

The 78th annual Golden Globes will be celebrated virtually on Sunday February 28. The event will be hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.

The Golden Globes are voted on by the approximately 90 journalists who make up the Hollywood Foreign Press association.

Actress/activist Jane Fonda will be presented the Cecil B. deMille Award for her outstanding contributions to the industry.

This is the list of this year’s nominees, and since we are STILL in quarantine, maybe it’ll give you a few ideas of new shows/movies to watch:

Snubs

It surprising to see that of all people Meryl Streep was not nominated for her roles in “Prom” and “Let Them All Talk”. The actress is the most celebrated person in Golden Globe history with 32 nominations.

It was also surprising not to see Ben Affleck nominated for his role in “The Way Back”. He plays an alcoholic basketball coach in the film which was one of the only movies released in cinemas in 2020.

After being snubbed last year for her role in “Euphoria”, Zendaya was overlooked this year for her role in “Malcom and Marie”.

The Golden Globes love Kate Winslet, who has been showered with 11 nominations over her career. But she wasn’t among this year’s best actress nominees for playing a lesbian palaeontologist in the period drama “Ammonite,” which probably means she’ll be sitting out of the Oscars race too.

Two-time past Globes nominee Uzo Aduba seemed a likely candidate for her third after portraying real-life political leader Shirley Chisholm in FX on Hulu’s limited series, “Mrs. America.” Instead, though, the lone representative of that series scoring a Globes nominee was Cate Blanchett in the limited series/TV movie actress race for her portrayal of the polarizing conservative Phyllis Schlafly.

Surprises

The biggest curveball of the morning? Kate Hudson landed a nomination for “Music,” an upcoming musical movie directed by Sia that has most people haven’t heard of — or seen.

It was surprising to see James Corden nominated for “The Prom” because he received terrible reviews for that role.

Although Lily Collins was thought to be a potential nominee, “Emily In Paris” beat out some heavyweights, including “Dead To Me” and Hulu’s “Ramy” in order to sneak onto the ballot this year.
