Golden Globes 2019: Not according to script

"I'm not fooling myself; next year could be different". "Bohemian Rhapsody" beat out "A Star Is Born", which was seen as the front-runner in the drama category, while "Vice", the Dick Cheney biopic, led all films with six nominations.

The awards were hosted by actors Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg, who opened the ceremony with a comedy skit.

"Bradley Cooper - you are hot!", said Oh, calling out the A Star is Born actor and director.

While Bohemian Rhapsody's win at the Golden Globes does give the troubled film momentum heading into the Oscars, it's not a particularly strong indicator of its chances, especially if the backlash continues to pick up steam.

Lady Gaga, a favorite to take home the best drama film actress prize for "A Star Is Born", stunned in an strapless periwinkle Valentino gown with full puff sleeves and a long train - and blue hair in a bun to match.

"The Favourite" actress Olivia Colman is an absolute gem. Gaga accepted the award with co-writers Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt. "There can be 100 people in the room, and you just need one to believe in you", she's said along the way. Alfonso Cuaron deservedly won Best Director; bafflingly, his film Roma wasn't nominated for Best Picture, even with so many slots on offer.

He also thought it was fitting to thank none other than the devil for giving him the pizzazz he needed to win the award, telling the audience: "Thank you to Satan for giving me inspiration for playing this role".

Egyptian-American Rami Malek's portrayal of Freddie Mercury in "Bohemian Rhapsody" won him a Golden Globe on Sunday night, with Malek winning "Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama". "It's up there. You're the one who let us into the deep waters and truly made the song what it is with your devastatingly attractive performance as an actor and a singer".

It may be time for the Globes to end their bifurcation of three major categories - Best Picture, Actor, Actress - into Comedy/Musical and Drama.

Taking a more loveable approach to roasting the audience, Oh and Sanburg opened up the award show by complementing various audience members.
