AceShowbiz - So many talented actors were vying for Golden Globe Awards at the Sunday, January 6 show, but only some of them will go home as the winners. Likewise, Lady GaGa has lost her chance to win her first prize in the movie acting category.
The "A Star Is Born" female lead, who was nominated for Best Actress - Motion Picture Drama, lost the prize to veteran actress Glenn Close. The 71-year-old won the accolade for her portrayal of Joan Castleman on "The Wife", edging out other strong competitors like Nicole Kidman ("Destroyer", Melissa McCarthy ("Can You Ever Forgive Me?") and Rosamund Pike ("A Private War").
She was completely stunned when her name was mentioned as the winner, freezing for a few seconds while other guests were clapping for her. She paid tribute to her fellow nominees during her acceptance speech as saying, "Everything you did this year, what you're here for is ... we should all be up here together."
Speaking of women's roles in today's society, she earned applause for saying, "Women we're nurturers, that's what's expected of us ... but we have to find personal fulfillment ... We have to say 'I can do that, and I should be allowed to do that.' "
Meanwhile, the Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama title went to Rami Malek for his critically-acclaimed performance as Freddie Mercury in "Bohemian Rhapsody". He beat out Bradley Cooper ("A Star Is Born"), Willem Dafoe ("At Eternity's Gate"), Lucas Hedges, "Boy Erased" and John David Washington ("BlacKkKlansman") for the prize.
"I am beyond moved. My heart is pounding out of chest right now," he said as he accepted the award. He thanked his mother, family and Queen "for ensuring authenticity and inclusivity exists in the music and in the world and in all of us." He also sang praise for the late rocker Freddie Mercury, saying onstage, "I love you, you beautiful man."
Olivia Colman won another acting award, Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy, for her portrayal of Queen Anne in "The Favourite". She thanked her co-stars Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone, jokingly calling them "b****es." She added, "Every second of working with you girls was such a joy."
"Green Book" bagged one of the coveted prizes, Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy, bringing its total win to three. It earlier won Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture for Mahershala Ali and Best Screenplay for Peter Farrelly, Nick Vallelonga and Brian Currie.
