The Golden Globe goes to…

Evening of January 8, 2016, the beautiful men and women of Motion Pictures and Television came together to honor the best of the best in the arts in the heart of Hollywood at the most prestigious Beverly Hills hotel. From the fashion, a beautifully choreographed opening number (JT looking good in his tux dancing with Jimmy by the way), witty presentations especially by Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig presenting the Best Animated film and then there are some painful forgettable ones such as Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn.

But the best part of the night was the Cecil B Demille Award presented to Meryl Streep. Viola Davis’ introduction was heartfelt, a voice and woman who has been inspired by dame Streep’s work, principles and beliefs. Meryl Streep on the other hand dropping the word of knowledge on how we must stand together to protect both journalism and the arts.

Here are 3 things I’ll take for the whole week.

On FASHION – most gowns worn are with bows, much like Belle in Beaut(if)y and the Beast; and Tuxes are mostly double breasted and debonaire looking. Whether you are going to paint the town red or working the day away always dress the part and present yourself in a way that exudes suave and demands respect.

On WITS and PUNCH LINES – during the awards shows there were many great witty moments that made the audience laugh aaand then there were moments where we rolled our eyes and gave a big sigh. Being witty and giving punch lines deserves proper timing and place — if your joke tanks you either get crickets or (if it’s really bad) you’ll be shown the door.

On INSPIRING STATEMENTS – Viola Davis’ and Meryl Streep’s statements are imprinted in the hearts of their audience and will probably be tweeted until the end of time. When giving a statement meant to make an impact and change minds, the most important element is the essence of your statement. You should speak with empathy and sincerity with the aim to make people not just feel better but want to BE better.

Let me end this blog with an excerpt from Meryl Streep’s acceptance speech.
“When the powerful uses their position to bully others, we all lose”
