Meryl Streep and Billy Bob Thornton Win Big at the Golden Globes
Meryl Streep and Billy Bob Thornton Among Golden Globe Winners Interviewed by Reba Merrill
The biggest stars of movies and television attended the awards’ seasons biggest and most inclusive party last night. The 2017 Golden Globes honored the best and brightest of the big and small screens including many celebs from MediaMine’s Walk of Fame and Reba Merrill collections.
The Golden Globe Award winners are selected by the 93 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA). Each year stars gather for the Globes gala dinner to recognize excellence in domestic and foreign film and television. This year “The Tonight Show’s” Jimmy Fallon served as the host.
The nominees who had been interviewed by legendary Hollywood journalist Merrill included two Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama — Denzel Washington for “Fences” and Viggo Mortensen for “Captain Fantastic.” Reba has also conducted past interviews with three Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy nominees — Colin Farrell (“The Lobster”, Hugh Grant (“Florence Foster Jenkins” and Ryan Gosling, who talk home the statuette for La La Land.”
Gosling wasn’t the only winner that Merrill has interviewed in the past. She’s also conducted sit downs with Best Performance by an Actor In A Television Series Drama prize winner Billy Bob Thornton.
And she’s chatted with the grand dame of the evening Meryl Streep, who was honored with a lifetime achievement award. The eight-time Golden Globe winner took home the Cecil B. DeMille Award and made headlines with her no-holds-barred speech about the current state of politics. “Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners,” noted Streep. “And if we kick them all out you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts.”
Her remarks caught the attention of more than Hollywood insiders and every day moviegoers. President Elect Donald Trump took to Twitter this morning to respond to the frequently honored actresses’ comments saying, “Meryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn’t know me but attacked last night at the Golden Globes. She is a Hillary flunky who lost big.”
