The Empire State Did Well At The Golden Globes
I know everyone is talking about host Ricky Gervais and his biting monologue and slashing jokes at the Golden Globes. It was an amazing thing that kinda put the Hollywood elite in their place. Except Tom Hanks....he's a freakin' National Treasure and no one should ever utter a bad thing about him.
The other really fun part of the Golden Globes was all the love productions that took place in the Empire State got last night. Obviously the movie Joker was going to get it's share of Golden Globes love, but also the HBO series "Succession, Laura Dern in "Marriage Story" and Russell Crowe in "The Lowest Voice" just to name a few. Plus, the rapper and actress known as Awkwafina, who went to UAlbany became the first woman of Asian descent to win a Golden Globe for best actress in a musical or comedy film for her starring role in "The Farewell."
