The Hollywood Foreign Press Association held the 76th Golden Globes awards ceremony on Sunday. Golden Globes are considered to be the second most important Hollywood accolades, after the Oscars, and some of the winning films will be exclusively screened at the upcoming FEST.
Olivia Colman took home the award for Best Actress in a musical or comedy for The Favourite, which will open the 47th FEST. Colman plays the forgotten British Queen Anne, who spends her times racing lobsters rather than ruling the kingdom, and behind her back two court favourites are engaging in a ruthless power play.
The award for Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy, went to Peter Farrelly for Green Book. The film is set in 60s and follows a refined pianist Don Shirley who goes on a tour of American South and hires a tough-talking bouncer from the Bronx as a driver. Mahershala Ali won the award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role, and Peter Farrelly, Nick Vallelonga and Brian Currie were awarded for Best Screenplay of this humorous and inspiring story of an unlikely friendship in the era of racial segregation.
