Any account of the 74th Golden Globes Award would be incomplete without the mention of Meryl Streep and her powerful, powerful acceptance speech when she stepped on stage to receive the Cecil B Mille Award. She sent a heartfelt message to Hollywood, to the press, to the powers that be and to us, a message we are unlikely to forget anytime soon.
Apart from Ms. Streep, there were numerous other movies, stars and TV shows that have won audience’s attention during this part year and now have the gold to prove it. One such massive winner was the movie La La Land that swept the 74th Golden Globes with a record seven awards.
