Peter Farrelly, Stephen Thompson, Golden Globes discussed on Pop Culture Happy Hour


Stephen Thompson, also with us in the wee hours of the morning is Glen Weldon of the NPR arts desk. Glenn? Yes. So we need to talk about some big winners as we mentioned in the intro on the film side. They were surprises to us. I guess and to some critics because they weren't necessarily every critics chart toppers, but green book and bohemian rhapsody were respectively. The winners for comedy musical and drama film. They did a great job this year on the Golden Globes honoring things that I have been putting off seat. So I need to go to you guys. Stephen were you surprised that the green book won the Golden Globe? I really was when you look at bohemian rhapsody bohemian rhapsody was a massive worldwide hit green book was not green book is the type of kind of traditionally awards e thing that feels like it could have been nominated for best picture in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine or nine hundred ninety six or two thousand three but it also didn't really capture the public's imagination. Bohemian rhapsody was like the movie all my relatives asked me about over Christmas. But green book seemed to kind of come and go. It was really surprising to see it win the big award at the end of the night. I've been putting off watching green book because I feared it would be this sort of placid uplift, you know, kind of very unchanging kind of kind of movie, and that speech by director, Peter Farrelly, which is just filled with all these platitudes about how we all need to find common ground. We need to do a lot more than that. That that didn't reassure me at all. Yeah. All we have to do is talk and to not judge people by their differences. But look for what we have in common. And we have a lot in common. We all want the same thing, we want love we want happiness. We want to be treated equally, and that's not such a bad thing. Thank you very much. He.
