I was back inside the Beverly Hilton on Sunday night for another Golden Globes, but this one felt a little different. On the eve of Donald Trump's inauguration, politics was front and center, as I wrote about over at IndieWire:
Leave it to Hollywood treasure Meryl Streep to give Hollywood a 2017 rallying cry — and remind the industry, gathered Sunday night at the Beverly Hilton, that they have a voice and a say in where this country is heading.
Accepting the Golden Globe Awards’ Cecil B. deMille honor for lifetime achievement, Streep elicited tears and a standing ovation from the crowd as she reminded the Globes audience that Hollywood is made up of talent from all over the country — and the world.
