Comedy At The Golden Globes 2018

It wasn’t the luck of the Irish, it was the talent. 

Greta Gerwig’s Ladybird won Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. This coming-of-age story starred Saoirse Ronan who also won the Best Actress – Musical or Comedy award for her performance in the film.

Ronan facetimed her Mam from the stage during the speech.

She then thanked “all of the women who I love so much in my own life who support me every single day”.

Although it’s not comedy, on the topic of the Irish we have to mention Martin McDonagh who was nominated in six categories. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri was the biggest film of the night winning 4 of the six categories. These include Best Motion Picture – Drama and Best Screenplay,”It’s my mum’s birthday tomorrow; she likes this kind of thing,” said Martin McDonagh, accepting his award.

“So happy birthday, mum – even though I think she wanted Lady Bird to win!”

Actor-director James Franco was the Best Actor – Musical or Comedy. In this film Franco portrayed independent filmmaker and actor Tommy Wiseau in The Disaster Artist.
