The Producers Guild of America Awards, which were presented on Saturday, is one of the few award ceremonies not televised. Because of that I only have what others write about of the night, but it sure did sound like an inspiring show.

The Golden Globes winners have been announced and it was one interesting night. Host Seth Meyers started the night off addressing the current Hollywood and political climate which presenters and winners gladly continued talking about throughout the night. Some stand out moments include Debra Messing calling out E! news for their wage inequality, Natalie Portman calling out the Hollywood Foreign Press for only nominating males for the Directing category, and Oprah Winfrey’s acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Award. The night as a whole sure made a strong statement that will only continue throughout awards season. But back to
