Meryl Streep strongly criticized President-elect Donald Trump as she received a lifetime achievement award at this year’s Golden Globes ceremony.

The Hollywood star did not name Donald Trump, but she used almost the entire speech to say the president-elect’ actions legitimized bullying.

In a phone interview with the New York Times, Donald Trump, who is due to be inaugurated in less than two weeks, dismissed Meryl Streep as “a Hillary lover”.

Meryl Streep was presented with the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award by Viola Davis.

La La Land has broken the record for the most Golden Globe Awards after winning seven prizes.

The musical won every award it was nominated for – including best musical or comedy film, best director, screenplay, score and song.

Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling also won in the acting categories.

The Globes are always seen as pointers to the Oscars.

Moonlight was named best drama film, while Casey Affleck and Isabelle Huppert won other acting prizes.

Casey Affleck was named best actor in a film drama for his role in Manchester By The Sea and Isabelle Huppert was the surprise winner of the award for best film drama actress.

Isabelle Huppert’s performance in thriller Elle – which was also named best foreign language film – beat contenders including Natalie Portman, who had been considered the favorite for playing Jackie Kennedy in Jackie.

Viola Davis was named best supporting film actress in Fences – a role she first played on Broadway six years ago.

Fences is an adaptation of the August Wilson play, which explores race relations in post-war America.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson was named best supporting actor for his role in Nocturnal Animals – a prize that had been widely expected to go to Mahershala Ali for Moonlight.

Zootopia was named best animated feature film at January 8ceremony, which was hosted by Jimmy Fallon.

Jimmy Fallon’s opening monologue was less risqué than those of some of his predecessors, but he still found time to make light of the divisive year in US politics.

He joked that the Golden Globes ceremony was “one of the few places left where America still honors the popular vote” – a reference to Donald Trump beating Hillary Clinton in the recent election despite getting fewer votes overall.

Jimmy Fallon also described grief-stricken film Manchester By The Sea as “the only thing more depressing than 2016”.

This year’s Golden Globes ceremony featured several references to Donald Trump – not least when Meryl Streep launched an attack on the president-elect while accepting the Cecil B. Demille award for outstanding contribution to entertainment.

Meryl Streep referred to Donald Trump’s mocking of a disabled reporter and said: “Disrespect invites disrespect, violence incites violence. And when the powerful use their position to bully others we all lose.”

The Golden Globe Awards, which are run by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, honor the best in TV and movie from the past year.

Actor Mel Gibson is now at the centre of speculation that he could be the biological father of Jodie Foster’s sons.

The rumors began when Jodie Foster, who has never revealed her boys’ paternity, thanked Mel Gibson, 57, for his support during her emotional speech at the Golden Globe awards last week.

And now the reports have been fuelled after the New York Post credited an “amateur genealogist” for saying Charles, 14, and Kit, 12, bear more than a passing resemblance to Mel Gibson.

According to the New York Post, the genealogist said: “The kids look like Gibson but blonder.”

Jodie Foster and Mel Gibson first became friends when they starred together in 1994 movie Maverick, before working together again on the more recent The Beaver in 2011.

They have formed such a strong friendship that Jodie Foster even name-checked Mel Gibson during her Globes speech, saying: “Mel Gibson – you know you saved me too.”

The camera flashed to Mel Gibson during her speech, and showed the actor wolf-whistling and applauding his friend.

Jodie Foster’s speech wasn’t the first time she has waxed lyrical about Mel Gibson.

In 2011, the actress told the Hollywood Reporter about Mel Gibson: “He’s so incredibly loving and sensitive, he really is.

“He is the most loved actor I have ever worked with on a movie. And he’s not saintly, and he’s got a big mouth, and he’ll do gross things your nephew would do.

“But I knew the minute I met him that I would love him the rest of my life.”

Jodie Foster added in a later interview that she would jump at the chance to work with Mel Gibson on another project in the future.

She said: “I think he is one of the greatest filmmakers in America that we have.

“That would be a shame, to never see that voice as a director.

“I look forward to anything that he makes whether he’s the boom operator, the actor or, especially, the director.”

Mel Gibson is already the father of eight children – seven by his ex wife Robyn – with one daughter Lucia, by former girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva from whom he split in April 2011.

Jodie Foster has previously insisted she won’t reveal the identity of her sons’ biological father until they turn 21.

However, there has previously been speculation that Jodie Foster’s late director friend Randy Stone, who was openly gay, could be the father.

Randy Stone died in 2007 following a battle with heart disease.

The nominations for 2013 Academy Awards will be revealed two weeks earlier than this year’s were.

The next year nominees will be unveiled on 10 January – five days earlier than normal and three days ahead of the Golden Globes.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) said it would “provide members and the public a longer period of time to see the nominated films”.

The 85th Academy Awards will be held in Hollywood on 24 February.

In recent years the Golden Globe Awards, hosted by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), have preceded the Oscar nominations announcement.

According to industry website Deadline Hollywood, bringing the latter forward could “blunt the impact” of the HFPA event.

“The Academy’s nomination announcement will get enormous attention just as the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is drumming up attention for its own big night,” wrote columnist Pete Hammond.

In The Hollywood Reporter, Scott Feinberg suggested the Academy’s board of governors hoped “to grab back some of the thunder that has been stolen in recent years by the ever-increasing number of awards shows”.

The changes, he said, “could have a major impact on awards season and on the viewing experiences of the Academy’s own members”.

As part of the Oscars shake-up, many of the Academy’s 6,000 members will also have the opportunity to vote online for the first time.

From 17 December a new system will allow them to vote on their preferred films, actors and technical film achievements by email.

The Directors Guild of America (DGA) had planned to announce its award nominations on 10 January but will now do so two days earlier.


Sunday night’s ceremony of Golden Globes 2012 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel built momentum for some actors on the Oscar trail.

Hollywood celebrated a foreign invasion at 69th Annual Golden Globes Awards, as films and television shows with a distinctly international pedigree collected many of the evening’s prizes.

The Artist, the black and white silent film, took home three prizes from the Golden Globe awards in Los Angeles, hosted by British comedian Ricky Gervais.

The Oscar-tipped movie was named best comedy and won additional prizes for lead actor Jean Dujardin and its score.

The Descendants was named best film drama and won a best actor prize for its star George Clooney.

Other lead actor awards went to Meryl Streep for The Iron Lady and Michelle Williams for My Week with Marilyn.

Meryl Streep, who plays Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady, thanked “everyone in England who let me come over there and trample over their history”.

Michelle Williams, recognized for her portrayal of Marilyn Monroe, thanked the Globes for “putting in my hand the same award you put in Marilyn’s hand more than 50 years ago”.

Martin Scorsese was named best director for Hugo, a family film that marked his first 3D feature, while Steven Spielberg received the animated feature prize for The Adventures of Tintin.

Veteran actor Christopher Plummer won the evening’s first award for his supporting role in Beginners.

The female equivalent went to Octavia Spencer for her role as a domestic servant in The Help.

Pop star Madonna was recognized for Masterpiece, a song she wrote for her historical drama W.E.

Iran’s A Separation received the award for best foreign language film, while Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris won best screenplay.

It was a good night for British talent in the television categories, which saw ITV1 period drama Downton Abbey named best mini-series.

“How fabulous this is,” said series creator Julian Fellowes.

“The whole Downton Abbey adventure has been an extraordinary one, like spotting a promising child and waking up to find they won the Olympics.”

Britain’s Idris Elba collected a best actor prize for BBC One crime drama Luther, while Kate Winslet was recognised for HBO mini-series Mildred Pierce.

Amidst the celebration and back-slapping, though, a poignant note was struck by Peter Dinklage as he picked up a supporting actor prize for Game of Thrones.

The US actor, who has dwarfism, ended his speech by paying tribute to Martin Henderson, a man with restricted growth from Somerset.

The 37-year-old was left with serious back injuries after being picked up and dropped on the ground outside a pub last October.

Ricky Gervais, criticized last year with his sharp-tongued presenting style, opened the ceremony with a waspish monologue.

Yet while he was briefly silenced for swearing, his barbs were not as cutting as they were 12 months ago.

The 50-year-old began the night by telling the star-studded audience the Globes were “just like the Oscars… without all that esteem”.

The event, he continued, was to the Oscars “what [reality TV star] Kim Kardashian is to [Duchess of Cambridge] Kate Middleton – a bit louder, a bit trashier [and] a bit drunker.”

The Office co-creator said he had been given strict instructions by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), organisers of the ceremony.

“The Hollywood Foreign Press has warned me that if I insult anybody… they’ll definitely have me back next year,” he joked.

Johnny Depp, Dame Helen Mirren and Colin Firth were a few of the stars who received a gentle ribbing over the course of the evening.

Yet the comedian got as good as he gave later when he introduced Madonna with a reference to her song Like a Virgin.

“If I’m like a virgin, Ricky, why don’t you come over here and do something about it,” joked the pop star turned director.

The Golden Globes is one of the first major awards ceremonies in the run-up to the Oscars, to be held this year on 26 February.

Both films and TV shows are recognized, with separate categories for dramas, comedies and mini-series or motion pictures made for television.
