The Golden Globes 2017: It’s A Red-Haired Affair…

Tonight we see awards season kick off with the Golden Globes, and all of our favourite gingers are back in the running for winning a future doorstop/toilet roll holder/paperweight. So, who’ve we got?


Best Actress in a Musical/Comedy – Emma Stone, La La Land

Emma Stone La La Land Golden Globes 2017

So this gal was already perfection. Then she started tap dancing and singing in this movie and we thought, WHAT FRESH WONDER IS THIS.

Emma Stone teams up with regular on-screen boyfriend and possible real-life soulmate Ryan Gosling, who both fall in love and dare to dream about making their lives better, all told through the medium of song and dance. The film is up for a lot of other gongs, with Stone tipped as the favourite to win Best Actress.

Best Actress in a Drama – Amy Adams, Arrival

Amy Adams Arrival Golden Globes 2017

It’s been a great 12 months for Ms Adams. She had a gorgeous turn in Tom Ford’s Nocturnal Animals and the long-awaited announcement of the Enchanted sequel, Disenchanted, finally came, which comes to our movie-feasting eyes in 2018.

But she’s picked an incredible character to play in Arrival, a sci-fi drama about alien spacecraft mysteriously landing on Earth and the college professor/linguist (Adams) who is recruited to try to speak to them.

Arrival is Independence Day without the guns and brutality, offering a much more emotional and human take on strangers and our inability to communicate with them.

Best Actress in a Drama – Jessica Chastain, Miss Sloane

Jessica Chastain Miss Sloane Golden Globes 2017

Sassy J-Chassy slays once more as the lobbyist fighting against the 2nd Amendment, and the depths of corruption within American government.

The script she works with is intelligent, gripping and while a lot of people considered this as too much like gun propaganda, her kick-ass performance is the real spectacle of the show.

Best Actress in a Supporting Role – Nicole Kidman, Lion

Nicole Kidman Lion Golden Globes 2017

Our Nicole is a woman of a million parts, and her performance as Dev Patel’s adoptive mother is one of the most emotional of her career. Taking on a real character in this true story, she has few scenes but makes a massive impact.

Watch out for the flashback scenes though, that curly red bob is brighter than an Australian sunset.

If you’re in the US you can catch the full awards show on NBC from 5pm US Pacific Time (PT) or 8pm Eastern Time (ET).

Good luck to all of our red-haired beauties in tonight’s Golden Globes!

She also loves political satire, vintage fairs, Yorkshire Tea and people with the surname ‘Weasley’. One day, she hopes to be opening letters addressed to Mrs. L. Cumberbatch, but until then she’ll be travelling for long periods of time in campervans and attending every music festival she comes across. And if Caitlin Moran is ever up for Prime Minister, she will get Lizzie’s vote, no problem.
