It’s all about film and TV at the Golden Globes but we couldn’t help but notice the musicians also at the show. This is how music was represented at the 2018 Golden Globes.
Mary J. Blige
Mary J. Blige is the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul but she’s also a talented actress. This year, the Golden Globes celebrated both of these talents. She was nominated for both Best Performance in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture and for her ballad, “Mighty River.” For the show, she was one of many of Hollywood’s greats who donned all black to stand against sexual harassment.
Justin Timberlake attended the 2018 Golden Globes to support his wife, Jessica Biel. Biel was nominated for her work in The Sinner and JT always made sure all eyes were on her. During interviews when hosts would ask about his forthcoming music, he would dismiss them and refocus it on his wife’s talents.
Sunday night’s Golden Globes were Kelly Clarkson’s first-ever — and it’s safe to say she had an amazing time. She was there to present alongside Keith Urban but she stole the red carpet when she fangirled over Meryl Streep. “I’ve adored you since I was like, 8!” Clarkson told Streep during their adorable encounter.
Keith Urban was, like Timberlake, an attendee at the Golden Globes to celebrate his wife. Kidman and Big Little Lies were big winners during the evening and Urban was more than happy to celebrate his wife.
Common was a presenter at this year’s Golden Globes. He wore Giorgio Armani and presented alongside Mariah Carey. Common is no stranger to this stage. He won for Best Original Song in 2015.
Barbra Streisand is another multi-talented individual. She presented and gave a very powerful presenter’s speech before giving Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri their big award.
Whether you love or hate music legend, Mariah Carey, you have to appreciate her Golden Globes look. She was flawless in a skintight black number. She was a presenter and a nominee at this year’s show. Like Common, she’s also won her own Golden Globe back in 1999.
Ricky Martin represented his many talents on the Golden Globes stage on Sunday night. He took a silly selfie before presenting alongside Penelope Cruz, Edgar Ramirez and Darren Criss.
Sure most people know Ansel Elgort as a talented actor, but he’s also musically talented. Elgort was nominated at the Golden Globes for his role in Baby Driver (a role where music was very important) but we still have to appreciate his musical talents. If you don’t know what we mean, just scroll through his Instagram account.
