In life, there are two kinds of people: the boring and the daring. Last night’s 77th Golden Globe Awards proved that statement to be true once again. As far as the winners were concerned, it was the same old performers — except for the extraordinary Awkwafina who made history as the first actor of Asian descent to win in a lead actress film category for her role in The Farewell, and actor Ramy Youssef, the first actor of Egyptian descent, to win for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series, Musical or Comedy, for his title role in Ramy. Everything else was a big yawn. Then there was the fashion.
Again, the boring was a snore. Actresses Jennifer Aniston, Saoirse Ronan, Scarlett Johansson, Michelle Williams, Taylor Swift, Rachel Brosnahan, Nicole Kidman, among many more, opted to go for the typical looks such as the strapless, the over-the-shoulder, the princess gown, the pantsuit, and the old school Hollywood glam.
The daring, however, Billy Porter, Awkwafina, Lucy Boynton, Joey King, Winnie Harlow, Jodie Comer, Kerry Washington, and others, made the show a bit more interesting to watch. They were visions of art. They wore unconventional gowns that made their beauty stand out among a sea of blah.
As for our Latina entertainers, well, it was a bit more complicated. Because we had so little representation this year — like extremely little — instead of just putting each one in a dull or daring category, we’re giving them their own award because clearly, the Golden Globes won’t. Here are the winners and the looks we didn’t exactly love. Check then out!
