Created to commemorate celebrities in films in the past year, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association nominates films and their actors based on each performance (goldenglobes.com). The first Golden Globes was held in 1944 at the 20th Century-Fox studios. For every year for almost a decade, the Golden Globes have been a tradition to honor the most talented people in the film industry.

This year on January 7, the Golden Globes was hosted by Seth Meyers and was held at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills. The awards show was celebrating its 75th year anniversary. Jam packed with controversy and many hardworking artists, the award show was contentious, nevertheless.

Different from many Golden Globes in the past, many artists wore black on the red carpet in support of people who have been sexually harassed. The dress up is in part with the new Time’s Up and Me Too movements. Several of our favorite actors and actresses supported the victims directly affected by Harvey Weinstein’s sickening acts, most of which are in the film industry (TIME). Definitely making a bold statement, the Time’s Up fund has reached $15 million in less than a week. Unique and inspirational, the red carpet served striking fashion choices, while looking elegant for the award show.

The program started off with Seth Meyers, who said a moving monologue about Trump, Weinstein, the projects nominated, and sexual assault (Glamour). After that, the show went off to a great start. Towards the end of the show, Oprah Winfrey presented a speech about the Time’s Up movement. Her influential speech is leading people to think she will run for presidential office in 2020. Apart from the controversy, there were also tons of awards given to Hollywood’s finest film celebrities.
