I paid $1.50 for chicken nuggets at burger king – 10 of em, got some dank ass weeds, and made it home just in time to see the Golden Globes.
And I’m glad I was listening to the voice that reminded me to tune in on sunday night
Tracee Ellis-Ross took best comedy actress at the top of the show and honestly, it set the tone for the rest of the night. One of my personal favorites, Atlanta, took home two awards for it’s premiere season.
(Speaking of premiere seasons, Issa Rae was also nominated for Insecure’s debut season, undoubtedly a testament to the creativity and freshness of these emerging writers of color.)
And of course, I would be remise if I did not mention Moonlight. I’ve still yet to see it but I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about it since it came out. All in all, this is probably the most diverse class of award winners that I’ve ever witnessed in my 20, almost 21, years. This year’s Golden Globe ceremony was refreshing.
And shout out to Meryl Streep. Spoken like a real one.
Honorable mention goes to questlove for dj-ing the hell out this show. I’d also like to thank the producers for limiting Jimmy Fallon’s time on stage. Y’all really had your shit together on this one. All in all, I think it was a pretty iconic night. (And even though they really stepped in it with that Hidden Fences shit, the resulting fallout dragging from black twitter was delicious.
It’s honestly impressive how fast the forces mobilize to call y’all on your bullshit. Luckily they took that L in peace and everyone else could enjoy the rest of their night.
Hopefully we’re in for an eventful awards season.
