West Side Story and dog power make yours the sadder night of golden balloons

It was all as cold as expected. More even. Icy. No party, no red carpet, no television cameras, nor the classical cloud of journalists, nor a famous one to hold on to give him some luster to the delivery of those who used to be the great party of the year in Hollywood. A few minutes after six in the afternoon, the names of the winners were succeeded through the Association of the Hollywood Foreign Press (HFPA), installed in the discredit by the accusations of corruption and lack of diversity that He has these awards at the edge of the precipice.

In this succession of faces and posters of series and films did not appear or that of parallel mothers, nor that of Javier Bardem, nor that of the composer Alberto Iglesias, the three Spanish award options. Drive My Car, La Japanese considered New York's criticism as the best tape last year, closed the passage to the Universal Manchego film as a best non-English language title.

Nor was lucky a Bardem who already accumulates five nominations and an award, the 2008 by No Country for Old Men. But it was not Benedict Cumberbatch, as some quinielas vaticinated, but Will Smith who was made with the golden statuette by the Williams method. Churches, who aspired to the Golden Globe by the soundtrack of parallel mothers, surpassed a classic: Hans Zimmer by Dune. It is the third of these trophies that focuses.

Not a single joy in Spanish key for one night without more history than the deterioration itself of the prizes. West Side Storyy The Power of the Dog made him his, with three golden balloons each. The colossal coral exercise of Steven Spielberg, despite the lack of heat from the public in halls, was imposed as a better comedy or musical and the awards for the two actresses of him, Ariana Debose and Rachel Zegler.

He only missed the best director for a filmmaker who has taken one step more on his way to the Olympus of a few gods of cinema. A woman, Jane Campion, director of El Piano, convinced the HFPA with the dark Western under the seal of Netflix, the power of the dog, winner of the final category, the best drama, in addition to Kodi Smit-McPhee as best Secondary actor.

The first of the night in celebrating at a distance was Debose, winning as a better secondary actress for his superb Encarnación de Anita, a trophy that at the time argued Rita Moreno for doing the same role in the 1961 version, at the orders of Robert Wise . She came after she would sing victory of her the partner of her, one of the sensations of the moment, Rachel Zegler. The debut of her in the cinema has not been able to be more eloquent, with Spielberg to the controls and making Mary, like Natalie Wood in 61.

Belfast, the semiautobiographic tape of Kenneth Branagh, had to settle for the Best Screening Award for his Director despite his 7 nominations, imposing which for many was the best placed, Aaron Sorkin by Being the Ricardos. The only prize for that Amazon period drama was for the presumed favorite to the Oscar, a Nicole Kidman who scored the fifth gold balloon of her.

Charm, on the other hand, took the cat into the water as the best animated film despite not having been precisely a brutal box office success for Disney. The Mickey Mouse Empire has even difficult not to prevail in a category in which he also opted for Raya and the last dragon and Luca.

Succession did not give an option in the television category. The family drama of HBO rose not only with the Golden Globe to Best Series of Drama but with the awards for its protagonists: Sarah Snook, as Best Secondary Actress, and Jeremy Strong as a Best Drama Actor.

Michaela Jaé Bautista made story by becoming the first transgender actress to win a golden balloon for her role in pose. There were no surprises with the veteran Kate Winslet as best actress in a television film. The work of it at Mare of Easttown is impeccable.

Hack, also with the HBO seal, was imposed as the best comedy of the year ahead of Ted Lasso's favoritism. They have the consolation of Jadon Sudeikis as a best comedy actor.

And that was all, less than two hours of firemen announcing awards next to a blog on its website. Without video or sound. The HFPA took advantage of the occasion to try to wash its image and recover part of the lost credit, making constant alluding to its donations to arts and culture conservation organizations. The purpose of amendment is evident. The question is if they are still on time to save the furniture.
