Golden Globes 2018: #Oprah2020, #Timesup and my Wonderful Mrs. Maisel Obsession

I am quite late with my roundup because I have been too busy travelling and eating, but here it is now, finally. And I was not going to do it, but it had to be done because it gives me a chance to comment on three great things. 1. the Time’s Up movement showing up in full force with #wewearblack. 2. how my new favorite TV obsession got lots of accolades but most importantly: 3. The ridiculously fabulous speech Oprah delivered. Here it is and its ok to clap or cry at the end!

For the first time in a long time award shows seemed relevant and we were meant to talk about them, so let’s do. I was obsessed about the fact that everyone wore black and joined in #timesup and the #wewearblack movement. So much awareness needs to be placed on this and my feminist self was emoji fisting up all day long. My favorite thing was the women who brought super relevant female or activist dates, so before I speak about the pretty dresses lets highlight that!! Susan Sarandon’s guest was organizer Rosa Clemente, founder of PR (Puerto Rico) On The Map. Emma Watson’s guest was Marai Larasi, executive director of Imkaan, a black-feminist network organization. Meryl Streep brough Ai-jen Poo who is the director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance. Shailene Woodley came with Calina Lawrence, who raises awareness of social injustices impacting tribal reservations and urban Native communities. Amy Poehler’s guest was Saru Jayaraman, president of Restaurant Opportunities Centers United & ROC Action.
Emma Stone chose walked the red carpet with Billie Jean King, Laura Dern brought Mónica Ramírez, an activist who organizes against sexual violence in rural areas and for Latina empowerment. And in terms of female empowerment highlighting women who have been strong in the movement, Natalie Portman brought America Ferrera as her guest, Salma Hayek brought Ashley Judd and Eva Longoria came with Reese Witherspoon.

This is also a great chance to talk about my new TV obsession – The Wonderful Mrs. Maisel. Who, not surprisingly won a Golden Globe for best Comedy TV show and Best Comedy actress.  I binged on an airplane and was hooked. I fell in love with the writing and the character. This of course had to be made by Amy Sherman Palladino,  who is amazing and whose Gilmore Girls and Bunheads I fell in love with too. go watch it in Amazon ASAP you will not regret it.

my thoughts on the Ceremony:

  • I am obsessed with Oprah’s speech. That is all.
  • Elizabeth Moss’s speech after winning for the Handmaids tale was amazing. See it.
  • Natalie Portman doing some quiet resistance
  • I love the Love for the Handmaid’s Tale, Big Little Lies and Mrs. Maisel – some of my favorite shows of the year.
  • Can Kelly Clarkson and Keith Urban sing in harmony in all the ceremonies?
