CHICAGO – The best of 2014 in film and TV was celebrated at the 72nd Golden Globe Awards on January 11th, 2015. Co-hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, the first big and splashy awards ceremony of the season honored the films “Boyhood” (Drama) and “The Grand Budapest Hotel (Comedy), plus continued to recognize the current influence of online TV series by awarding honors to “Transparent” (Amazon Prime) and its lead actor, Jeffrey Tambor.

The Golden Globes are often the preview to the Oscars (February 22nd, 2015), and the favored supporting actor and actress, J.K. Simmons (“Whiplash”) and Patricia Arquette (“Boyhood”) took home Globes. Rounding out the acting awards – separated into comedy/musical and drama – were Michael Keaton (“Birdman”), Julianne Moore (“Still Alice”), Eddie Redmayne (“The Theory of Everything”) and Amy Adams (“Big Eyes”). The Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award honored George Clooney.

The television side continued its recognition of TV series on the internet, as Kevin Spacey took home Best Actor Drama for “House of Cards” (Netflix), but there were also surprises as “The Affair” from the pay-cable Showtime Channel won Best TV Drama, and Gina Rodriguez won Best Actress TV Comedy for “Jane the Virgin” (The CW).

TV, DVD, BLU-RAY & THEATER REVIEWS

  • Bobby Pin Girls

    CHICAGO – The “breeder years” are difficult on everyone, as the biological imperative becomes overwhelming and the couplings that result yield both discovery and misadventure. Nothing Without a Company’s new play “Bobby Pin Girls” highlight two such Millennial women, roommates who are having man trouble, although the argument can be made that it’s eternally “boy trouble.” The show has a Thursday-Sunday run at the Chicago Mosaic School through December 3rd, 2017. Click here for more details, including ticket information.

  • Transformers 5 front

    CHICAGO – Knock me over with a feather kids, but I enjoyed “Transformers: The Last Knight.” Maybe it was in comparison to the others or maybe director Michael Bay has beaten me into submission, but this one had the right story elements and casting to make it work, with exceptions of course. It’s goofiness is its charm, and it was released on Blu-Ray/DVD on September 26th, 2017 (Digital HD already available).
