5 Golden Globe Winners I Think Are Totally Worth Your Time
Admittedly, I haven't seen all the projects and performances that nabbed Golden Globe Awards Sunday night. But of the winners I HAVE seen, these are well worth your time in my opinion.
Moving on from my list below, which of these Globe winners should I watch next?
Despite Leo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, I was still hesitant to watch a movie based on the Charles Manson Murders. But I couldn't have had this movie pegged more WRONG. It's not at ALL what I thought, and really focuses on a has-been actor and his stunt double friend both trying to climb their way back to the top. And if the name 'Quentin Tarantino' makes you weary of blood and gore, this is the director's most tame level of violence yet. It's a gem.
Find it in theaters.
Olivia Colman picked officially picked up her first award for taking over the role of Queen Elizabeth from Claire Foy. I thought I was going to be hard to win over with The Crown's new cast, but Colman's portrayal of Queen E is worth it's weight in Globes gold. She's steely and practical in a way that makes you hate her and admire her all at the same time.
Find it on Netflix.
I'm (sadly) well-versed in the true life story of Dee Dee and Gypsy Rose Blanchard. I've followed it for years. Dee Dee suffered from Munchhausen's By Proxy Syndrome, essentially making her own daughter gravely ill for years for her own personal gain, until Gypsy decides to murder her. As if the real Dee Dee wasn't phony enough, Patricia Arquette makes her even creepier and more unbelievable.
Find it on Hulu.
While the major motion picture Bombshell is getting most of the FOX News attention this awards season, Russell Crowe's portrayal of disgraced TV legend Roger Ailes in this limited series shows the sex abuse scandal that brought him down from his perspective. It's fascinating to watch how Ailes built the beast FOX News is today.
Find it on Showtime.
OMG Joaquin Phoenix is just disturbed. He probably ISN'T REALLY, but he gives a good faking of it. If you thought there was even a twinge of charm in Heath Leger's Joker, that will all be erased the moment you watch Joaquin brush on his first swipe of face paint. Side note: Robert DeNiro's performance as a Johnny Carson-like late night host is also near perfection.
Find it in limited theaters.
