Here Are All The Golden Globes Winners

Westlake Legal Group 5e12157925000045bad31cec Here Are All The Golden Globes Winners

Sam Mendes’ single-take war film “1917” took home the top-tier prizes at the 77th annual Golden Globe Awards, picking up trophies for Best Director and Best Motion Picture Drama.

Hollywood’s booziest, most unpredictable and downright frustrating awards show kicked off Sunday night at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, where Ricky Gervais returned to host for the fifth time at the ceremony honoring the best in film and television over the past year.

Despite Netflix making history with a towering 34 nominations, the streaming service failed to gain much traction at the ceremony. Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman,” the Eddie Murphy comeback vehicle “Dolemite Is My Name,” the Vatican-set “The Two Popes” and Noah Baumbach’s gripping “Marriage Story” were almost completely shut out ― save for Laura Dern’s Best Supporting Actress win for “Marriage.”

Instead, Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” nearly dominated the comedy categories, scoring awards for Best Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy, Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor for Brad Pitt.

“Joker” also had a relatively strong showing, setting the record for most wins by a comic book movie with Joaquin Phoenix nabbing the Best Actor in a Drama trophy.

And despite some underwhelming snubs ― most notably the absence of any female directors ― the show broke down some barriers, with Awkwafina becoming the first actor of Asian descent to win the Globe for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and Bong Joon Ho’s “Parasite” making history as the first Korean film winner in the Best Foreign Film category. 

In the television arena, HBO’s “Succession” took home multiple awards with wins for drama series and lead actor Brian Cox, while Amazon’s “Fleabag” dominated in the comedy categories.

Trump Reiterates Threat to Target Iranian Cultural Sites

Westlake Legal Group 05dc-trump-facebookJumbo Trump Reiterates Threat to Target Iranian Cultural Sites War Crimes, Genocide and Crimes Against Humanity United States Politics and Government United States International Relations United States Defense and Military Forces Trump, Donald J Suleimani, Qassim Pompeo, Mike Iran

WASHINGTON — President Trump on Sunday evening doubled down on his claim that he would target Iranian cultural sites if Iran retaliated for the targeted killing of one of its top generals, breaking with his secretary of state over the issue.

Aboard Air Force One on his way back from his holiday trip to Florida, Mr. Trump reiterated to reporters traveling with him the spirit of a Twitter post on Saturday, when he said that the United States government had identified 52 sites for retaliation against Iran if there were a response to Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani’s death. Some, he tweeted, were of “cultural” significance.

Such a move could be considered a war crime under international laws, but Mr. Trump said Sunday that he was undeterred.

“They’re allowed to kill our people. They’re allowed to torture and maim our people. They’re allowed to use roadside bombs and blow up our people,” the president said. “And we’re not allowed to touch their cultural site? It doesn’t work that way.”

The remarks came just hours after the secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, walked back Mr. Trump’s tweets and said that whatever was done in any military engagement with Iran would be within the bounds of the law.

Mr. Trump also vowed to impose sanctions on Iraq if a move to evict American military personnel from the country takes place, a possibility heightened by the Iraqi Parliament’s passage Sunday of a measure to expel foreign troops. And Mr. Trump said that he had been tracking General Suleimani for many months.

Seahawks advance to next round on backs of DK Metcalf, Russell Wilson

The Seattle Seahawks got a fantastic game from rookie D.K. Metcalf and a strong performance from the defense to end the Philadelphia Eagles’ playoff hopes and advance to the next round.

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was 18-for-30 with 325 passing yards and a touchdown pass in the 17-9 win.

The touchdown pass, to Metcalf in the third quarter, gave Seattle enough of an edge to hold off the Eagles.

EAGLES’ CARSON WENTZ EXITS GAME AFTER TAKING BRUTAL SHOT TO THE HEAD

Metcalf finished with seven receptions for 160 yards and the touchdown. He also had the long catch to seal the win for Seattle.

Seattle’s defense also caught a bit of a break.

Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz was knocked out of the game after he took a hit to the head from Seahawks defensive lineman Jadeveon Clowney. Wentz didn’t return to the game; Josh McCown replaced him.

MCCAFFREY A DOUBLE ALL-PRO PICK; GILMORE, THOMAS UNANIMOUS

McCown gave a valiant effort but couldn’t score a touchdown even when they got close. McCown was 18-for-24 with 174 passing yards. However, he was sacked six times while Wentz was sacked once. Those key sacks were enough to half any kind of Eagles momentum.

Seattle is set to take on the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Divisional Round.

The last time the two teams met in the playoffs was on Jan. 18, 2015, in the NFC Championship game. Seattle scored 15 points in the fourth quarter and got the game-winning touchdown pass from Wilson to Jermaine Kearse in overtime to win the game.

This upcoming matchup is sure to be a classic.

Celeste Barber’s Fundraiser For Aussie Firefighters Tops $22 Million

Westlake Legal Group 5e1272a524000041245a4f4d Celeste Barber’s Fundraiser For Aussie Firefighters Tops $22 Million

Australian comedian Celeste Barber has rallied citizens of the world to donate to the firefighters on the frontlines of Australia’s wildfire crisis.

Since the Facebook fundraiser was launched Friday, almost 800,000 people from all corners of the globe have donated a fast-growing total of more than $22 million (almost $32 million Australian dollars) to the New South Wales Rural Fire Service.

Barber, who is famous for parodying celebrities on Instagram, started the fundraiser after her family was badly struck by fires in the New South Wales south coast town of Eden. 

“This is my mother in laws house. It’s terrifying. They are scared. They need your help. International donations can be made via the link in my bio,” she wrote on Instagram to her 6.5 million followers.

“Finally! Someone with an international following raising awareness to how much we are in trouble. Thank you Celeste!!!!!” one commenter wrote on her post. 

“Hi Celeste, me and my mum lost our family’s property (not our permanent home) on Tuesday in the fires. I had a huge collection of books up there that I left for guests who stayed and one of them was yours. The last time I was up there I read your book in the sun on our balcony and laughed so much. Very good memories. I hope more celebrities start garnering some attention because as you say, we really need help,” another commenter wrote on Facebook.

Donors on the Facebook fundraiser page shared messages of hope from around the world, from countries including the U.S., Finland, Denmark, U.K., France, Canada, New Zealand and Germany.

In an Instagram story, Barber said she had spoken to the head of the fire service, who said the fundraiser had given them “a bit of positivity in the terror.”

“We are going to keep pushing,” she said.

Barber said that the funds, which were initially intended for the NSW RFS, will also be distributed to firefighters in the states of Victoria and South Australia. She said she’d been “overwhelmed” with feedback and would work with relevant authorities and consult with fire services to get funding to wildlife charities, the Red Cross, and the families of those killed by the fires.

HuffPost has reached out to Barber’s publicist for further information.

On Sunday, as the fundraiser continued to climb by around $10,000 a minute, Barber shared a video of her mother-in-law Joy Robin from bushfire-ravaged Eden, where the sky was a frightening shade of orange. She was upset and emotional as she called out the government for leaving them “high and dry.”

Since the fundraiser’s launch, singer Pink and actor Nicole Kidman have pledged $500,000 each to local fire services in bushfire-affected states of Australia.

“I am totally devastated watching what is happening in Australia right now with the horrific bushfires. I am pledging a donation of $500,000 directly to the local fire services that are battling so hard on the frontlines. My heart goes out to our friends and family in Oz,” P!nk wrote on Saturday.

Kidman, who was reportedly in tears during a Golden Globes event in Los Angeles on Saturday, said her and her partner Keith Urban’s “support, thoughts and prayers,” were with all those affected in Australia.

The link to Barber’s fundraiser was also shared by singer Lizzo, who is a headliner for Australia’s FOMO festival, “Queer Eye” star Jonathan Van Ness, and actors Natalie Portman and Selma Blair.

Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios set off a wave of support in the sporting world when he pledged his support to the cause. Ashleigh Barty, another Aussie tennis player, pledged to donate her entire $250,000 prize if she wins Brisbane International. Five-time grand slam winner Maria Sharapova, who is in the country ahead of the upcoming Australian Open, promised a $25,000 donation and urged World No. 2 Novak Djokovic to match it.

At the Golden Globes on Sunday, “Fleabag” star Phoebe Waller-Bridge announced backstage that she would auction off the Ralph Russo suit she wore to the awards ceremony and donate the money to Australia’s fire relief. Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett, Ellen DeGeneres and Pierce Brosnan used their speeches to bring attention to the crisis.

Other celebrities, including Hugh Jackman, Kim Kardashian and Selena Gomez have all pledged and urged support for those affected by fires, which have killed 23 people, razed more than 1,500 homes, and burnt through more than five million hectares. Close to half a billion animals are feared dead, according to estimates from ecologists.

Venezuela’s Guaidó blocked from congressional session as rivals declare substitute leader

Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó was forcefully blocked by national guardsmen Sunday from presiding over a congressional session where his rivals ultimately elected a substitute leader as new congress chief.

Guaidó, 36, and his supporters blasted the move, calling it a hijacking of the country’s last democratic institution.

After the guardsmen prevented lawmakers including Guaidó from entering the National Assembly, the U.S.-backed leader tried to mount an iron fence surrounding the legislature, only to be repelled again.

A similarly rowdy situation broke out inside as rival lawmakers headed by Luis Parra tried to swear themselves in as legislative leaders with the support of socialist deputies loyal to disputed President Nicolás Maduro.

The opposition claimed there was no valid vote for Parra. Guaidó, who has held a comfortable majority in the 167-seat assembly, immediately denounced the impromptu session as a “show” carried out by a group of “traitors” in cahoots with Maduro.

Maduro officials celebrated the gambit as a comeuppance for Guaidó, who has been struggling to maintain unity in the unwieldy opposition coalition.

Parra, meanwhile, called a session for Tuesday, setting up a fight over rival claims to the legislature’s leadership in the days ahead.

VENEZUELA’S CURRENCY SO WORTHLESS IT’S MOSTLY BEING USED FOR MAKING CRAFTS

A year ago, Guaidó asserted that his position as the legislative leader made him Venezuela’s interim president in place of Maduro, whose 2018 reelection has been rejected as invalid by the legislature, as well as by the U.S., European Union and several Latin American governments.

There was no indication of weakening support among the dozens of governments that recognized Guaidó as Venezuela’s rightful leader. Brazil’s government called the session an “affront to democracy,” while the top-ranking U.S. diplomat in Latin America called Sunday’s events in the chamber a “farce.”

“This morning’s phony National Assembly session lacked a legal quorum. There was no vote,” Michael Kozak, the acting assistant secretary for the State Department’s Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs, tweeted.

Guaidó faced a major test in articulating a new vision in his campaign to remove Maduro, but his re-election for a second straight year as the head of the congress had been widely expected.

The weeks leading up to Sunday’s vote were marked by tension, with the opposition denouncing a covert government campaign to intimidate and bribe lawmakers into voting against Guaidó.

Parra was one of a handful of lawmakers who broke with Guaidó and have since been expelled from their parties for alleged involvement in a corruption scandal involving Maduro allies.

Socialist lawmakers argued that Guaidó’s absence forced them to initiate their session without him, but all day, opposition lawmakers faced resistance by security forces who set up several barricades downtown.

Support for Guaidó inside the opposition has taken a hit since several minority parties in November splintered off to create a separate bloc to negotiate directly with Maduro.

The small group of opposition lawmakers who broke with Guaidó argued that by sticking to a naive plan of removing Maduro by force, he has put his political ambitions above the needs of Venezuelans who have had to endure an economy in shambles.

Though the country sat atop vast oil and mineral resources, it has been imploding economically and socially in recent years. Critics blamed Venezuela’s woes on years of failed socialist rule and corruption, while Maduro’s supporters said U.S. sanctions were taking a toll on the economy.

Maduro, who took over after the 2013 death of former President Hugo Chávez, has maintained military backing and control over most branches of the government, despite the deepening crisis.

He has accused Guaidó of being a puppet of the United States. Maduro also said he’s determined to win control of the National Assembly in elections later this year.

Kim Zolciak’s daughter Brielle Biermann reveals she dissolved her lip injections

Kim Zolciak-Biermann’s daughter Brielle Biermann revealed that she dissolved her lip fillers after years of sporting the pouty-faced look.

The 22-year-old “Don’t Be Tardy” star, who previously revealed that she began getting her lips plumped at age 18, noted on her Instagram Story Saturday that she chose to dissolve her injections for the first time since.

“Dissolved my lips yesterday…gonna look like 18 year old Brielle again soon,” she wrote over an image of herself looking off to the side. “2020 new year new me!”

KIM ZOLCIAK-BIERMANN SAYS ‘POLICE ARE NOW INVOLVED’ AFTER DAUGHTER BRIELLE CLAIMS FAMILY WAS KICKED OFF FLIGHT

The reality star noted that she thinks her face will be “black n blue for a few days,” as a result. She also shared some photos of herself when she was a teenager to help fans get a clear picture of her facial transformation since she started getting lip fillers.

“I know y’all know these lips ain’t the vibe,” she captioned another photo of herself at “16 or 17.”

Brielle shared a third image of herself when she was younger along with a collection of face-palm emojis.

KIM ZOLCIAK-BIERMANN REVEALS SON’S TERRIFYING GO-KART ACCIDENT

She previously explained to People that she was desperate to start injecting her lips as early as age 14 after noticing that her friends’ lips seemed bigger than hers.

“All my friends had beautiful, full lips,” she explained at the time. “Like my best friend Elizabeth. I was like, you b—-, I want lips that look like yours… Since I was 14 I was like, I have to have my lips done right when I turn 18. If I could’ve done it sooner I would’ve and I don’t regret it. I don’t think I’ve gone overboard like people claim.”

Her mother, Kim, added: “Brielle was very insecure about her lips, I heard about it FOREVER. And when she turned 18, she was like, I’m doing it. And I was like, well, I’m going to take you to the best, I’m not going to let you go to somebody who’s not good. So I did take her and I got a lot of heat for that, but it’s like, she’s going to do it anyway.”

Brielle has faced a myriad of negative comments over the years. As Page Six notes, in 2018 she fired back at a commenter who put down her look saying: “BRUH. my lips do NOT look good in photos i f—ing get it i’m really over y’all saying this as if i’ve never seen/heard it!”

Russell Crowe will not be in attendance of the 77th Golden Globes due to the devastating fires in his native Australia, according to a new report.

Crowe, 55, nominated for his role in Showtime series “The Loudest Voice,” opted out of traveling to Beverly Hills, Calif. for Sunday’s show and is remaining in Australia amid the devastation, Variety reported.

According to the outlet, Crowe’s property in Australia is “gravely threatened” by the destruction currently ripping through the continent.

Last month, Crowe shared a selfie of him and actress Nicole Kidman, who grew up and also has properties there, making their way to Australia ahead of the Christmas holiday.

“hey @qantas thanks for getting me home in time for Christmas out of the craziness that is LAX, and thanks for the pure gift of sitting next to one of my favourite people in the universe,” he captioned the photo.

Hollywood’s biggest stars are continuing to spread the word about the deadly fires on social media, with many already announcing the donations they have made as a means to help battle the flames and protect its wildlife.

Kidman and husband, Keith Urban, reportedly donated $500,000, as did singer Pink.

“I am totally devastated watching what is happening in Australia right now with the horrific bushfires,” Pink announced to her 32.2 million Twitter followers on Saturday.

Bindi Irwin and her family, who own and operate the Australia Zoo, have dedicated the last few weeks to saving as many animals as they can.

“With so many devastating fires within Australia, my heart breaks for the people and wildlife who have lost so much,” she wrote Thursday on Instagram.

“I wanted to let you know that we are SAFE,” Bindi added. “There are no fires near us @AustraliaZoo or our conservation properties.”

The 21-year-old activist shared that they have treated over 90,000 animals thus far.

The wildfires have burned millions of acres in New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia, an area twice the size of Maryland. In New South Wales, the rural fire service (RFS) said as of Sunday there were 150 fires active in the state, 64 of them uncontrolled.

Iran Challenges Trump, Announcing End of Nuclear Restrictions

When President Trump withdrew the United States from the Iran nuclear deal in May 2018, he justified his unilateral action by saying the accord was flawed, in part because the major restrictions on Iran ended after 15 years, when Tehran would be free to produce as much nuclear fuel as it wanted.

But now, instead of buckling to American pressure, Iran declared on Sunday that those restrictions are over — a decade ahead of schedule. Mr. Trump’s gambit has effectively backfired.

Iran’s announcement essentially sounded the death knell of the 2015 nuclear agreement. And it largely re-creates conditions that led Israel and the United States to consider destroying Iran’s facilities a decade ago, again bringing them closer to the potential of open conflict with Tehran that was avoided by the accord.

Iran did stop short of abandoning the entire deal on Sunday, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, and its foreign minister held open the possibility that his nation would return to its provisions in the future — if Mr. Trump reversed course and lifted the sanctions he has imposed since withdrawing from the accord.

That, at least, appeared to hold open the possibility of a diplomatic off-ramp to the major escalation in hostilities since the United States killed Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani, the second most powerful official in Iran and head of the Quds Force.

But some leading experts declared that the effort to contain Iran’s nuclear ambitions through diplomacy was over. “It’s finished,” David Albright, the president of the Institute for Science and International Security, a private group in Washington that tracks nuclear proliferation, said in an interview. “If there’s no limitation on production, then there is no deal.”

To some of the Iran deal’s most vociferous critics, the announcement was a welcome development. Among them was John R. Bolton, the former national security adviser who was ousted by Mr. Trump last summer because, the president said, he was concerned Mr. Bolton was forcing him into conflict with Iran.

“Another good day,” Mr. Bolton wrote on Twitter. “Iran rips the mask off the idea it ever fully complied with the nuclear deal, or that it made a strategic decision to forswear nuclear weapons. Now, it’s on to the real job: effectively preventing the ayatollahs from getting such a capability.”

But to much of the world — especially the Europeans, Russians and Chinese, who were partners in the nuclear deal — Mr. Trump’s decision to back out of the accord led to the crisis.

The president’s unilateral action started a sequence of events — the re-imposition of American sanctions, Iran’s gradual return to nuclear activity over the past year, actions that led to the targeting of General Suleimani — that could be speeding the two countries toward conflict.

Iran’s announcement means that it will no longer observe any limits on the number of centrifuges it can install to enrichment uranium or the level to which it enriches it.

Iran did not say if it would resume production at 20 percent, a major leap toward bomb-grade uranium, or beyond. But by allowing inspectors to remain in the country, as the foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, said Tehran would, Iran will have witnesses to its own “maximum pressure” campaign against the West.

The primary American objective in the 2015 agreement was to keep Iran at least a year away from getting enough fuel to fashion a warhead.

Even before Sunday’s announcement, a series of steps by Tehran discarding elements of the agreement had reduced that warning time to a matter of months. The risk now is that uncertainties about how close the Iranians are to their first weapon will grow, and perhaps become fodder for calls in the United States and Israel to take military action.

In essence, Iran is saying it now can produce whatever kind of nuclear fuel it wants, including bomb-grade material.

Now, the United States and Israel must confront the big question: Will they take military or cyberwarfare action to try to cripple those production facilities?

More than a decade ago the United States and Israel cooperated on a mission code-named Olympic Games, the most sophisticated cyberattack in history, to get into the computer code driving the centrifuges at the Natanz nuclear enrichment site and make them blow up.

The Iranians recovered, and rebuilt the facility, tripling the number of centrifuges that existed before the cyberattack and opening a new centrifuge center deep in a mountain called Fordow, which is far harder to bomb. Israel repeatedly considered bombing the facilities, but was stopped by the United States and internal warnings about starting a war.

Now, after the killing of General Suleimani, those restraints could evaporate.

The nuclear deal also laid out unusually stringent scrutiny for all of Iran’s main nuclear facilities — “including daily access” if international atomic inspectors requested it.

Sunday’s announcement left unclear whether Tehran intends to obey that heightened scrutiny or will lower its adherence to the standard level. In a Twitter post, Mr. Zarif, the foreign minister, said “Iran’s full cooperation” with the inspectors of the International Atomic Energy Agency “will continue.”

Mr. Albright of the Institute for Science and International Security said that reduced visibility into the Iranian nuclear program could end up increasing fears of worst-case scenarios — and, perhaps, miscalculations — related to military strikes and war.

“They were added to gain comfort,” Mr. Albright said of the strengthened inspections. “Having daily access reduced suspicions and the chance of conspiracy theories taking root.”

For example, Mr. Albright said, new ambiguity could darken views in the West on how long it would take Iran to make enough fuel for a single atomic bomb — what nuclear experts call “breakout.” Such estimates are based on the number and efficiency of the whirling machines that concentrate a rare isotope of uranium to levels high enough to make weapon fuel.

The Iran deal was designed to keep Tehran a year or more away from getting enough highly enriched uranium to fashion a single warhead — what international inspectors call “a significant quantity.”

Mr. Albright said his group’s worst-case estimate for an Iranian breakout is four to five months. But some experts, he added, have estimated as little as two months.

He noted that the international inspectors still would have regular access to Iran’s nuclear facilities as part of the safeguard agreements of nuclear nations.

But if “the high level of transparency that the nuclear deal provided” should come to an end, Mr. Albright added, “it could undermine confidence” in the West’s assessments of Iran’s nuclear acts and intentions.

Russell Crowe will not be in attendance of the 77th Golden Globes due to the devastating fires in his native Australia, according to a new report.

Crowe, 55, nominated for his role in Showtime series “The Loudest Voice,” opted out of traveling to Beverly Hills, Calif. for Sunday’s show and is remaining in Australia amid the devastation, Variety reported.

According to the outlet, Crowe’s property in Australia is “gravely threatened” by the destruction currently ripping through the continent.

Last month, Crowe shared a selfie of him and actress Nicole Kidman, who grew up and also has properties there, making their way to Australia ahead of the Christmas holiday.

“hey @qantas thanks for getting me home in time for Christmas out of the craziness that is LAX, and thanks for the pure gift of sitting next to one of my favourite people in the universe,” he captioned the photo.

Hollywood’s biggest stars are continuing to spread the word about the deadly fires on social media, with many already announcing the donations they have made as a means to help battle the flames and protect its wildlife.

Kidman and husband, Keith Urban, reportedly donated $500,000, as did singer Pink.

“I am totally devastated watching what is happening in Australia right now with the horrific bushfires,” Pink announced to her 32.2 million Twitter followers on Saturday.

Bindi Irwin and her family, who own and operate the Australia Zoo, have dedicated the last few weeks to saving as many animals as they can.

“With so many devastating fires within Australia, my heart breaks for the people and wildlife who have lost so much,” she wrote Thursday on Instagram.

“I wanted to let you know that we are SAFE,” Bindi added. “There are no fires near us @AustraliaZoo or our conservation properties.”

The 21-year-old activist shared that they have treated over 90,000 animals thus far.
