Politicizing the Golden Globes: The Meryl Streep-Donald Trump battle

As Meghan McCain Tweeted on Sunday night, "This Meryl Streep speech is why Trump won. And if people in Hollywood don't start recognizing why and how — you will help him get reelected."

Like much of America, Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn react to Meryl Streeps acceptance speech

WASHINGTON, January 10, 2017 – The news cycle about Meryl Streep’s Golden Globe speech has lasted far longer than the conversation on who won what at the yearly event where Hollywood liberals celebrate Hollywood liberals. It must be noted that conservative actor and director, Mel Gibson did not win for the critically acclaimed Hacksaw Ridge while Ryan Gosling and Amy Adams were the darlings of the media elite for La La Land, a poor remake of the great musicals.

Politicizing the Golden Globes, or any other self-indulgent award show, is most likely a mistake. We turn West to those who pretend to be someone of substance, humor, ability or commons sense when we want to take a break from the daily drudge that life has become.

Writing from La La Land, Steven Zeitchik of the Los Angeles Times offers his viewpoint from the hills of Hollywood.
