Kate Hudson in, Spike Lee out and more Golden Globe chaos
From the Kate Hudson movie that no one has heard of to the very awkward shut out of Spike Lee, here’s a look at some of the biggest surprises of the morning. You’d be hard pressed to find someone who wasn’t surprised to hear Kate Hudson’s name announced among the best actress nominees. Lee’s acclaimed Vietnam drama “Da 5 Bloods” was expected to be a shoo-in for any number of categories: Best picture, best director, best actor for Delroy Lindo or supporting actor for Chadwick Boseman, who died last year. The Globe nominations also tested our understanding of what constitutes a film with some interesting categorizations and nominations, putting Steve McQueen’s “Small Axe” anthology film series in a television category. The filmed “Hamilton” performance on Disney+, meanwhile, was eligible in the film categories and picked up two nominations.
Sia Says She Stopped Maddie Ziegler From Getting on a Plane With Harvey Weinstein
Sia is protective of Maddie Ziegler. The singer opened up about her relationship with the 17-year-old dancer -- whom she's worked with for years after Ziegler starred in Sia's 2014 "Chandelier" music video -- claiming she stopped her from getting on a plane with Harvey Weinstein. The GRAMMY winner then claimed that she "kept her off a plane that Harvey Weinstein tried to get her on." Sia also noted that she feels "terrible shame" for throwing Maddie, a former Dance Moms star, into a bigger spotlight. I just had no idea then she would blow up and be this famous little teenager," Sia explained.
