In this adaptation of a novel by Philippe Djian, the actress who has eclipsed the favorite Natalie Portman plays a woman who is raped, who is going to track down her attacker. The other surprise has been the grand slam achieved by the musical comedy The Land going home with seven awards, a record.
The Golden Globes, the most prestigious awards of Hollywood, after the Oscars, shall be deemed to be imprévibles. And this Sunday evening, for their 74th edition, the 91 journalists of the foreign press association of Hollywood that the awards were not disappointed, and have multiplied the winners surprising. To begin with Isabelle Huppert. The French actress has defied the odds and won the Golden Globe for best actress in a drama film for her role of a woman who is raped in It of Paul Verhoeven, eclipsing the favorite experts, Natalie Portman (Jackie), as well as Amy Adams (First contact); Jessica Chastain (Miss Sloane); Ruth Negga (Loving). Sign of the impact of the film of the Dutch film director, It , an adaptation of the novel Oh of Philippe Djian, also walked away with the trophy for the best foreign film.
In accepting his award, rougissante, from the hands of Leonardo DiCaprio, Isabelle Huppert, whose “heart was pounding” warmly thanked Paul Verhoeven of “let it be (itself)”. “Thank you,” she tells voters, “for making me win in a French movie, directed by a Dutch director, here in the United States.” “There are people all over the world in this room, from China, America, Europe. Do not wait for the movie that it set up walls and boundaries”, she started, in a direct message to president-elect Donald Trump, who promised to erect a wall between the United States and Mexico. The future tenant of the White House has been the target of most of the peaks of the evening.
AT RTL, Isabelle Huppert, which has been rewarded over the weeks, and by many associations of critical u.s. said to live an “extraordinary experience”. And he added: “I’m happy for me, happy for Paul Verhoeven as well. The Golden Globes, there’s a lot of generosity, a lot of testimony, of affection, of admiration, which make the event extremely pleasant”.
The Land between in the history of the Golden Globes
Another surprise of the evening, the grand slam achieved by the musical comedy The Land who has grabbed seven awards: best comedy, best screenplay, best soundtrack and best song, best director and best actors and actresses in a comedy and Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, who camped out a couple of artists trying to break through to Los Angeles. Certainly, the tribute from Damien Chazelle with the classic and its fairy-tale numbers of tap and dance were one of the favorites of the season, but no one would have imagined that The Land triumphs in each of the categories in which it was named, and between in the history of the Golden Globes, becoming the film as titled, in front of Flight above a nest of cuckoo and Midnight express and their six awards. At 31 years old, Damien Chazelle, which confirms its reputation as a gifted Hollywood, is the youngest filmmaker to be crowned best director at the Golden Globes.
This tidal wave of The Land must not forget the list of side dramas, who also has played in scenarios that are expected. Moonlight tells the story of the quest of identity of a young African-american in a ghetto of Miami was a favorite with the melodrama Manchester by the sea. But the film Barry Jenkins has not begun the evening, and seemed destined to leave empty-handed, especially after his young star Mahershala Ali tilts in the category of best second face of the underdog Aaron Taylor-Johnson, award-winning for Nocturnal Animals of Tom Ford.
An antechamber in trompe-l’oeil of the Oscars
Finally, Moonlight has established itself at the last moment, winning the trophy for king of the evening , the Golden Globe for best dramatic film, the place with The Land in pole position in the race for the Oscar for best film. Manchester by the sea is just a single statue, that of best actor for Casey Affleck, a man torn by grief, who becomes, in reverse, the guardian of his nephew an orphan. The younger brother of Ben Affleck has continued to accumulate awards and nominations for this role, Viola Davis, winner of the Folden Globe for best supporting actress for Fences Denzel Washington, where she portrays a mother of a family, african-american, tested by life. “It is not every day that Hollywood adapts a stage play, this is not a guarantee of success at the box-office, but this project had a heart,” welcomed the heroine of Murder.
Considered as the antechamber of the Oscars, the Golden Globes, however, are not an oracle to be very reliable for the future winners of the Academy awards as the operation of the two instititutions differ. But a victory at the Golden Globes delivers a big buzz and accelerator in a campaign to win a nomination. These will be announced on January 24.
