While viewers will have to wait until Sunday night to find out exactly what kind of line of questioning will surface in this new, uncharted red carpet era, we've already started brainstorming a few topics we'd love to see come up during the Golden Globes pre-show. The Golden Globes, airing this Sunday night on NBC, could provide some further clarity, but the Hollywood Foreign Press Association also has its notable likes and dislikes.
Reese Witherspoon enlisted costume designer and stylist Arianne Phillips to design the Time's Up pin: a reference to the sexual harassment prevention initiative launched Monday by Witherspoon, Shonda Rhimes, Emma Stone, Kerry Washington, Natalie Portman and other Hollywood women. The organization seeks to help pay legal fees for anyone facing sexual harassment in the workplace. My initial reaction to that bold statement was to ask, what color do men normally wear to a formal affair?
The past few months have been consumed by a shocking wave of sexual harassment allegations against Hollywood heavyweights, prompted by the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment allegations, seeing over 50 women come forward with claims of harassment and in some cases assault against the 65-year-old.
The film follows interracial couple Chris (Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), who have reached the meet-the-parents stage of dating.
-Who are three female directors you'd love to work with in the future?
She invites him for a weekend getaway with her parents and, at first, Chris reads the family's overly accommodating behaviour as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter's interracial relationship.
Among the men, it's likely down to Daniel Day-Lewis for "Phantom Thread" and Gary Oldman for "Darkest Our" with a long shot from Timothee Chalamet for "Call Me By Your Name".
Either way, the Golden Globes will be a much talked about night. The message is Time's Up. Ok, then. Liberal guilt is the best guilt.
Speaking to The I Paper, Blum explained: "We didn't anticipate the out-cry the Globes category would cause".
In the comedic category, Margot Robbie ("I, Tonya") and Saorise Ronan ("Lady Bird") are the top contenders, with possibly a surprise win from Dame Judi Dench ("Victoria & Abdul").
