Streep shines and attacks Trump

The amazing #Meryl Streep received the Cecile B. Demille life-achievement award, after obtaining her twentieth nomination. In her powerful and moving speech, she remembered when the most powerful man in America imitated a disabled journalist and she reminded to everyone that disrespect invites disrespect, violence incites violence and when the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose. She also stated that Hollywood is full of foreigners and outcasts and if they can not belong to the United States of America anymore, there will be only football and mixed martial arts left to watch. It was an incredibly powerful and witty speech delivered by an icon of the last century's #Cinema.

Moonlight wins

Till the very end, "Moonlight" didn't receive any award, but it got what this incredible movie deserves: the best drama picture award. In an emotional speech, the director Barry Jenkins thanked his mom saying, "you gave me my life, and I hope being on the stage right now is the fulfillment of the life that you gave me".

#Golden Globes 2017 didn't surprise us, but it was a memorable celebration of diversity, rights, dreams and love.
