HOLLYWOOD, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – Beginning in 2017, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) will add a third category to its annual Golden Globe Awards.
HFPA announced the new category after being deluged with criticism about tonight’s Golden Globe award for ‘The Martian’ and Matt Damon for Best Picture and Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy.
The new category will be ‘Motion Picture That’s Neither Drama Nor Musical or Comedy.’
Film producers and actors applauded the HFPA announcement because it would increase their chances of getting nominated or awarded for the Golden Globes.
HOLLYWOOD, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – For the first time in the history of the Golden Globes, not one, but two LGBT films have been nominated for the top acting awards: ‘Carol’ and “The Danish Girl.’
Last year’s best actor for both the Golden Globes and the Oscars, Eddie Redmayne, is again nominated in the drama category for his role in ‘The Danish Girl.’ Cate Blanchett and Mara Rooney are both nominated as best actresses in drama for ‘Carol.’
“The Danish Girl’ is about the remarkable love story inspired by the lives of artists Lili Elbe (Redmayne) and Gerda Wegener (Alicia Vikander). Lili and Gerda’s marriage and work evolve as they navigate Lili’s groundbreaking journey as a transgender pioneer.
In ‘Carol,’ Therese Belivet (Rooney) spots the beautiful, elegant Carol (Blanchett) perusing the doll displays in a 1950s Manhattan department store. The two women develop a fast bond that becomes a love with complicated consequences.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) today issued an apologetic statement saying that its voting members made a huge mistake by nominating Redmayne, Blanchett and Rooney in the wrong categories.
‘We erred in political correctness by nominating Redmayne as best actor instead of best actress for his role as a transitioning transgender woman. Further, we wanted to nominate either Blanchett or Rooney as best actor but we had no clue about gender roles in lesbian relationships so we named them both in the best actress category,’ the HFPA statement said.
But the LGBT community was more forgiving, with leaders and advocates saying they are very honored and ecstatic that the community will be front and center when the awards are handed out in Hollywood on January 10th.
All’s well that ends well!
HOLLYWOOD, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – ‘The Martian,’ starring Matt Damon playing the role of an astronaut left behind and presumed dead on planet Mars, was so funny and the musical numbers so outstanding that it was nominated today in three categories for the Golden Globe Awards.
The film picked up three nominations: Best Director (Ridley Scott), Best Actor in a Motion Picture in a Musical or Comedy (Matt Damon), and Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy.
But if you are among the many who were so confused and angered about today’s announcement nominating the film in the comedy or musical category for the annual awards handed out by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, you can relax. It was a hoax, as confirmed this evening by The Adobo Chronicles.
