Last night at the 75th annual Golden Globe awards, Big Little Lies and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri were the big winners. And in a show of solidarity to the #MeToo movement, men and women wore black to the award show to protest sexual harassment and assault everywhere.
In his Globes opening monologue, host Seth Meyers took jabs at accused sexual abusers Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey, saying “This was the year of big little lies and get out, and also the television series Big Little Lies and the movie Get Out.” The Late Night host went on to address Weinstein’s absence, noting, “Don’t worry, he’ll be back in 20 years when he becomes the first person ever booed during the In Memoriam.”
Oprah Winfrey gave a powerful speech calling out sexual abusers while accepting the Cecil B. de Mille Award at the Golden Globe Awards:
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will be in Lower Sackville tomorrow to host a town hall meeting. An announcement on MP Darrel Samson’s website says Trudeau wants to hear from you about issues that matter to us as we begin the New Year. The town hall will happen at Sackville High at 7 PM; doors open at 5:30 PM.
Following the release of Michael Wolff’s Trump tell-all book, the President took to Twitter to defend himself from questions over his mental fitness, calling himself “like, really smart,” and not only just smart but also a “genius…and a very stable genius at that!” Trump claims he never allowed Wolff access to his life at the White House and considers this book a work of fiction. The book, which was released Thursday is already sold completely out on Amazon.
And that’s your Fast Five!
