The 74th annual Golden Globes were presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association last night, live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.
Accepting the award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series for her role in black-ish, Tracee Ellis Ross said, “It is an honor to be on this show, black-ish, to continue expanding the way we are seen and known, and to show the magic and the beauty and the sameness of a story and stories that are outside of where the industry usually looks.”
Zootopia, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ blockbuster feature, was named Best Animated Feature and producer Clark Spencer and directors Byron Howard and Rich Moore represented the film at the Golden Globes. “We wanted Zootopia to be a film that not only entertained kids but also spoke to adults about embracing diversity, even when there are people in the world who want to divide us by using fear,” Howard said in accepting the award. “And on top of all that, we even managed to fit in a joke about a sloth working at the DMV—and that, my friends, is a big victory for all of us,” Moore joked.
