Guillermo del Toro with “Pinocchio” and Santiago Miter with “Argentina, 1985” were crowned this Tuesday (01.10.2023) at the 80th edition of the Golden Globes held in Los Angeles, awards that celebrated diversity and Steven Spielberg.

With a televised gala full of Hollywood stars, the Bevery Hilton in Los Angeles witnessed the most diverse edition of the Golden Globes since with Asian, black and Latino stars at the head of the ceremony, who during their speeches expressed how hard they had been to make a space in the Hollywood industry.

All this after the awards were about to disappear, after two years in which they have faced numerous criticisms and boycotts, with accusations of corruption and lack of racial diversity among its members, an issue that the organizers faced tonight with humor and constant teasing.

The awards celebrated diversity, with a jubilant Guillermo del Toro receiving the award for best animated film.

“I’m happy to be there in person, some are already drunk and what could be better? It’s an incredible year for cinema,” said the Mexican, who in 2018 became the third Latino director to win the best director award with “The Shape of Water” at these awards considered the prelude to the Oscars.

In one of the most emotional speeches of the night (with the permission of Volodímir Zelenski, who intervened through a video), the Argentine filmmaker Santiago Miter from “Argentina, 1985”, Golden Globe for best foreign film, celebrated -accompanied of the film’s protagonist, Ricardo Darín- the importance of continuing to fight for democracy.

Spielberg autobiographical drama

“I want to share this with all the people who have been fighting for democracy in Argentina since the dictatorship and are still fighting,” he said of the film that follows the trial of those responsible for the dictatorship in Argentina during the 1980s.

But if there was a star of the night it was the filmmaker Steven Spielberg and “The Fabelmans”, the autobiographical drama inspired by his childhood and youth. He won the award for best dramatic film and best director.

“I have been hiding from this story since I was 17 years old,” the filmmaker acknowledged about the film that nostalgically portrays the first years of life.

Martin MacDonagh’s “The Banshees of Inisherin” was the most awarded film of the night, winning Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, as well as Best Actor – Musical or Comedy for Colin Farrell and Best Screenplay for Anglo-Irish Martin McDonagh, also director.
