Mediocrities ruled the evening at last night's Golden Globes as the thoroughly mediocre Bohemian Rhapsody beat the likes of If Beale Street Could Talk, Black Panther, A Star is Born, and BlacKkKlansman to take the Best Picture Drama award. The similarly mediocre Green Book took the Best Picture Musical or Comedy prize despite not being funny and depriving Vice, The Favourite, Mary Poppins Returns, and Crazy Rich Asians of the privilege.
Rhapsody's Rami Malek took home a well deserved trophy for Best Actor Drama, as he is quite literally the only thing that movie has going for it outside of Queen's music, while Mahershala Ali took Best Supporting Actor honors for Green Book. Like Malek, he is more or less the only saving grace of such a pat, rote, ridiculous melodrama, and the fact that he didn't win this award for Moonlight two years ago makes me just fine with Ali taking home more hardware.
There were some bright spots in the ceremony with the brilliant Olivia Colman taking Best Actress Musical/Comedy honors for The Favourite, 227's Regina King winning for her equally incredible performance in Beale Street, and Vice's Christian Bale beating out Viggo Mortensen's absurd Vinnie Boombatz caricature for Best Actor Musical/Comedy.
Alfonso Cuaron took home Best Foreign Language Film and Best Director honors for Roma, giving Netflix its first major category win in history. First Man won one of its two nominations, with Justin Hurwitz taking home the Original Score prize for his austere and unforgettable work on that severely underrated film. Lady Gaga also didn't go home empty handed, winning for co-writing Original Song winner "The Shallow" for A Star is Born.
