CHICAGO – The best of 2015 in film and TV was celebrated at the 73rd Golden Globe Awards on January 10th, 2016. Hosted with the usual sass by Ricky Gervais, the Globes honored “The Revenant” (Drama) and “The Martian” (Comedy) as Best Pictures, and surprised in TV Best categories with “Mr Robot” (Drama) on the USA Network and “Mozart in the Jungle” (Comedy) on Amazon Video.

In the film actor and actress categories, the highlight of the night came as Sylvester Stallone took home the Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of underdog boxer Rocky Balboa in “Creed,” calling the character, “the best friend he’s ever had.” In the major Best Actress categories, it was Brie Larson for “Room” (Drama) and Jennifer Lawrence for “Joy” (Comedy). Best Actors were Leonardo DiCaprio for the “The Revenant” (Drama) and the “hilarious” turn by Matt Damon in “The Martian” (Comedy).

The TV honorees contained the most surprises, as “Wolf Hall” on PBS beat the showier competition in the Best Limited Series category, Lady Gaga of “American Horror Story: Hotel” won for Best Actress in a Series and Rachel Bloom – in a hyperactive acceptance speech – took home the Best Actress in a Comedy Series for the little seen, but critically praised “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.”

  • Cher Show, The

    CHICAGO – Cherilyn Sarkisian… yes, that is her birth name… is the redoubtable Cher, and it’s perfect timing for her to have a jukebox musical tribute. “The Cher Show,” covering three eras/songs of the six-decade career of Cher, opens for a Chicago preview before its Broadway run, from June 12th through July 25th, 2018.

  • ThroatPunch

    CHICAGO – The provocative title of Sharon Krome’s new stage play, “ThroatPunch,” does not contain that particular fight technique. But it does have standout performances by the three person cast, as they make their way in Chicago, circa 1983, amid their emerging twentysomething punk rock attitude. The World Premiere of the show has a Thursday-Sunday run at the Chicago Mosaic School through June 3rd, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
