Donald Trump Takes a Beating From Hollywood at Golden Globes

UPDATED: There was one man who loomed large even in his absence at Sunday night’s Golden Globes.

From the red carpet, to the stage at the Beverly Hilton, to the interview room backstage, Hollywood heaped its disdain on President-elect Donald Trump. Speakers said the man who will soon be in the Oval Office had done everything from stoke incivility at home to provoke hostilities that could lead to war abroad.

If Hollywood had any concern about how its anti-Trump message would play among the roughly half of American voters who supported Trump, it did not show.

The evening’s shadow guest made an early showing with host Jimmy Fallon’s first one-liner. “This is the Golden Globes — one of the few places left where America still honors the popular vote,” Fallon zinged. Soon after, he was invoking an apparent Trump fan, the leader of Russia, noting that the Globes votes were “tallied by the accounting firm of Ernst, Young and Putin.”

On social media, it seemed like there was no way to win. Commenters criticized Fallon for not being tougher on Trump before the election, while those on the other side of the aisle thought the focus on roasting the President-elect was distasteful in a show meant to celebrate entertainment.

The hits began on the red carpet, where Issa Rae said “Every single time I see a tweet from that man, every single time when I see the staff, the administration, he is bringing in, it gets worse and worse. And the scariest thing is how normal it’s becoming to some people.”

The theme was given fuller voice by Hugh Laurie, with acerbic British wit in his speech as winner of best actor in a limited series or TV movie for his role in “The Night Manager.””I’ll be able to say I won this at the last-ever Golden Globes,” the actor quipped. “I mean it’s got Hollywood and foreign and press in it.” He added that he was accepting his award on behalf of “psychotic billionaires everywhere” – alluding to his character in “The Night Manager,” but also seemingly to that magnate headed for the Oval Office.

Meryl Streep added her voice to the critiques of the President-elect, describing the moment when candidate Trump mimicked and mocked a disabled reporter. “It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter, someone he outranked in privilege, power, and the capacity to fight back,” Streep said. “It kind of broke my heart when I saw it. I still can’t get it out of my head because it wasn’t in a movie. It was real life.”

The most decorated actor of her era, Streep received the Cecil B. Demille Award Sunday. She went on to bemoan Trump’s “instinct to humiliate,” adding: “when it’s modeled by someone in the public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody’s life, because it kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing,” she continued. “Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence incites violence. And when the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose.”

On Sunday evening, Trump responded briefly to the New York Times, saying Streep is a “Hillary lover” and that although he had not seen the show, he was not surprised he had come under attack from “liberal movie people.”

Meghan McCain also responded to Streep’s speech, provoking a fresh round of liberal outrage with her tweet “This Meryl Streep speech is why Trump won.”

The venom for Trump continued backstage, where director Paul Verhoeven said he had some “very bad thoughts” about Trump. Verhoeven called the real estate magnate’s ascent to the White House “scary” because of “the attitude he displays, and the people he put in [his Cabinet.].”

The acclaimed director — taking the globe for Best Foreign Language Film for “Elle” — cited a German expression for impending danger, saying he believed that the new presidency “can easily go into directions that ultimately will end up with war and destruction.” Verhoeven added that “it can turn out to be different than I think, but apparently the last … months have not changed my mind [about] what this means.”

While such sentiments played well among the overwhelming liberal Hollywood crowd, not everyone in America was enjoying the Trump beat down. On Twitter, one fan of the president-elect wished for more entertainment, like the opening “LaLa Land” themed opener, so that “we didn’t have to listen to Fallon make Trump jokes.” Another echoed that complaint, adding: “You are on your own planet. And you wonder why Trump won.”

Backstage, winners were repeatedly asked to take on Trump, but took a slightly more diplomatic approach.

Viola Davis, winner for best supporting actress in a film for “Fences,” said that the fight for the American Dream was “bigger than him,” referring to the man who will take the Oval Office later this month. “I believe that it is our responsibility to uphold what it is to be an American and what America is about and the true meaning of what it means to pursue the American dream,” Davis said.

“I think that America in and of itself has been an affirmation but I think that we’ve fallen short a lot,” Davis added in her remarks backstage. “Because there is no way that we can have anyone in office who is not an extension of our own belief system.”

Near the evening’s end, Best Actress in a drama winner Isabelle Huppert paid another tribute to the diversity of the arts, noting that the Golden Globes crowd had come from around the world. It was hard to imagine anyone else she had in mind when she concluded: “Do not expect cinema to set up walls and borders.”

    Just wait till the Oscars. He’s deservedly going to get more of this, though it will not top Streep’s speech.

  2. Morris says:

    He is below any standard set for humanity. Belongs in a zoo with the other baboons that he looks and acts like.
    God protect America for the next four years from this psychopath that conned his way into the White House.

  3. See Me - Feel Me says:

    During the run up to the election this site was overwhelmed with commentary, very colorful, hate filled commentary, anti Hillary posts from a group of very hostile Trump supporters most of whom disappeared after the election ended. Some of them are back now spewing hate and garbage talk and the target is Hollywood and entertainers. Ironically Trump is nothing if he’s not an entertainer. Are these folks hired by Trump’s biggest supporter Putin? Possibly, or paid by Steve Bannon’s racist cronies? Hard to say but these comments come from very unbalanced people much like the man they helped elect. The posts are so pointed, angry and divisive, engineered it seems to provoke and cause dissension. If these people are not paid trolls, which I’m betting they are, then they are seriously ill people who cannot stop whining about an election they won. No one is talking about Hillary anymore except for these people. We accepted the results of the election, as has she, no childish, angry, baby talk tweets from her, she exhibits a level of class that Trump can’t even aspire to because he thinks class is about money. We have accepted it but we see what’s going on and the hate filled posts that we see here are reflective of the man who is now president, an insecure, thin skinned “man” with dictatorial ambitions. As much as I don’t trust DT, I do not trust the source of these provocations. These people seem like they just want to pick a fight rather than engage in a dialogue so I’d rather walk away than humor them. Anger is an ugly repulsive force, positive action is full of light and love and it will in the end always triumph. The swamp is no place for angels.

  4. Patty says:

    Good for Streep. Proud of her she spoke out for many many people whom were shocked over trumps stupidity. That he is. No class at all. Embarrassed he will be sitting in a White House he doesn’t belong. Hope he is forced to resign. Thankyu. Military widow

  5. Contessa46 says:

    More of the population is stunned to have Trump as America’s president. I am sure there are thousands of people sitting home kicking themselves because they stayed home thinking Hillary was a shoe in. That’s how important every vote is. That being said, we have elected the most ignorant immature, cruel showman to be president. In your minds we are the most powerful nation in the world but not so much anymore, for we now are the least respected. This is full mode-the fall of the US. He will destroy the fabric of our nation as well as the economy. You people who voted for him WILL NOT GET MANY JOBS BACK. Automation took care of most of your jobs, that’s the way it is. Move or find another field! Hollywood reflects our nation strickingly well. Streep is correct, most of Hollywood is comprised of people from all over the world. Few live behind walls in mansions with a house manager and a pool boy. Most are struggling actors vying for parts in movies or TV and sometimes practicing their craft where ever they can. Dustin Hoffman once said, “most of us are not working, most of the time” and are so grateful for substantive work. I give you about two years for you to come to your senses and see what a loser was elected.

  6. Mandy says:

    I will provide a verified and well documented list of Streep’s charitable activities and anyone who would continue to challenge her character, I ask that you provide a list of Trumps known (verified) charitable contributions:

    Meryl Strrel is the National Spokesperson for the National Woman’s History Museum to whom she has donated significant amounts of money and hosted numerous events.

    Other charities & foundations supported by Meryl Streep:

    Actors Fund of America
    American Foundation for AIDS Research
    Artists for Peace and Justice
    Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS
    Entertainment Industry Foundation
    Equality Now
    Girl Up
    Healthy Child Healthy World

    *One last thing: Do others see the complete Irony in remarks that wealthy celebrities are disconnected from the average American? Do these individuals really not understand that Trump IS a billionaire celebrity who has never, ever, not one single day of his life had to worry about money…he has never experienced one brief second of fear about not paying a bill (he has the money but actually chosesnot to pay $ owed), he has never driveb a broken down car (he doesnt even drive, he is driven) he has never had to send back groceries at check-out because he didn’t have enough money to pay for them all (he has staff who does his shopping for him) he has never lied in bed awake at night because he fears he is losing his job (he has “fired” plenty of people). I assure you that the majority of successful Actors wete not raised in extreme wealth: most come from humble means and are far more connected to the average American than Trump and his Cabinet of gazillionaires will ever be.

    God: please forgive a Country who’s people idolize cruelty and bigotry over compassion and charity

  7. drluggit says:

    So, the thing about folks like those awarded last night is simply the disconnect between their privilege and their guilt at having it. Meryl is an excellent example. Someone who has built massive personal wealth, and yet acts as if they are still “just one of the little people”. And yet, she lives behind massive walls. She floats above those she claims to be one of. She bemoans anyone who actually demands that government fulfill their obligations to uphold the law, unless it directly benefits her.

    She may have unwittingly provided the soundtrack for future political success for folks like mr Trump. One can see the adds now. The pained, self righteous tone, displayed with the lifestyle that she leads. All at the expense of the average folks who have spent their hard earned income to see a movie, or a show she was in.

    Yes, she has an amazing gift. It’s just so unseemly to watch her denigrate it by assuming that she actually has something worth while to add to the political discussion.

    • The Truth says:

      You have no idea how Meryl Streep lives. She’s more down-to-earth than Trump will ever be and has done more to support “the little people” by major orders of magnitude than Trump ever has. She actually contributes her time and money to worthy causes, while Trump contributes none of his own money and buys portraits of himself with the charitable contributions of others. Trump is all about privilege and conspicuous consumption, while Streep lives simply by comparison. Hard-earned dollars from average folks who had no say in the matter have been tapped to bail Trump out of six bankruptcies while he lives much larger than Streep and brays about it. And as is obvious by her comments, Streep wants our national leadership to fulfill their obligation to behave with decency and respect for others, which Trump has repeatedly proved incapable of doing. Apparently Trump believed that Streep’s input to the political discussion was worthwhile enough to tweet about, albeit inanely as is his custom. She did not denigrate her gift with her candid public commentary; she honored it by denouncing political bullying and calling on the public to support a free press and to hold Trump accountable.

  8. Gahan says:

    The real beating will start Jan 21. When all the Illegals are deported by Trump and the Army of Deplorables,, California will be on its way to turning Red for 2020.

  9. D Barnes says:

    They don’t get it. This elitism on the left is precisely why the election went the way it did. These liberals have absolutely no connection to reality nor the common American voter. Their closest connection to the commoner is probably when their house manager talks to their pool cleaner. Most of America would love California to break away too.

  10. I am a little more than annoyed with Hollywood. A chosen few enjoy enormous salaries, and they get to throw out what they like for public viewing controlling the air waves and cinemas. They constantly are giving themselves awards, and pretend they are not just like Trump. Miss Streep goes into a long attack of an incoming president basing it on something (watching a press clip probably) that is an inaccurate portrayal of what happened. Trump has used those gestures many times to describe someone flailing to back up some alleged wrong he has committed. Trump is not a terrific guy, granted, but he’s a lot more above board than someone like Clinton who hides behind some sort of fake decency. She is still married to a man that lied constantly and ejaculated all over the Oval Office on some young woman. It’s deplorable. I think people should wake up to Hollywood’s agenda of control and impropriety. They are the worst offenders over the years that make what Trump’s done child’s play. People should stop shelling out 12 bucks a crack for less than 2 hrs of hit or miss entertainment. Take away their pocket books. That’s what this is all about anyway for them.

    • The Truth says:

      Nobody cares if you’re annoyed with Hollywood, and nobody’s talking about Clinton. She’s not going to be President. But the whole world — except you — knows Trump was mocking the disabled reporter. Whether or not he’s used those gestures before is immaterial. How stupid can you be?

  11. Inspector clouseau says:

    A collective joke of liberal and MSM bullshit. Amazing how some liberal/lefty losers still think the election hasn’t ended and their establishment puppet’s still in the running.Think the loud talkers in LaLa land should concentrate on making their industry more entertaining instead of crying about how the wicked witch should be pres.

    • See Me - Feel Me says:

      I don’t think she mentioned Hillary Clinton or at all in her speech, what she did say is that we have to be vigilant about the “man” who would be dictator and those who seek to put him there. The uniformed voter who has yet to see through the character of the “man” they supported is the most alarming thing. The irony of castigating the wealthy elites when this guy you voted into the White House is the poster child for trust fund babies, a loser who would never had made a dime if left to their own devices is the punch line to this joke of a person. But somehow you see this con artist as being touch with your needs. You are whining, Meryl was issuing a warning. Grow up. Read something.

      • Inspector clouseau says:

        The truth?? Too funny dipshit.

      • The Truth says:

        How obtuse can you be, Clouseau? The election is over, and the Clintons are history. Streep’s comments were about Trump, and there’s nothing she said that isn’t true. Conversely, your comments about Obama are straight from the loony bin. His administration brought the country back from a recession caused by conservative policies that allowed the financial sector to peddle worthless paper with impunity. You can trash liberals all you want as being blind to the truth, but if you think you’re seeing 20/20 you’re the moron.

      • Inspector clouseau says:

        Uh-huh. Seems the Clintons sure know how to make a buck at tax payers expense. You foolish liberals don’t get it– people are fed up with the same establishment crap and that’s why Trump got in. Very simple. All you ass sore nitwits over looked all the shit the Clintons have done through the years. Pathetic. They’re criminals for Christ sake and we normal people don’t want another corrupt Clinton in office. Don’t tell me Streep didn’t mention Clintons name but we all knew what she implied. See,we’re not blind to the truth like liberals are. Tell what’s really disgusting is the women who voted for her because she’s not male. Again that’s pathetic. You enjoyed 8 years of Obama and that’s enough. He wanted destroy this country and still does. He’s a traitor and the worse pres in history. Better a non politician gets a chance than another proven ctiminal moron.

    Not a Trumpist but…

    Hollywood beating up on T is preaching to the choir, hardly a brave stand. Probably strenghthens him w his base. Would imagine he loves it.

    Hwood and T have a symbiotic relationship. They need each other. As do media on the left and right.

  13. Steve Barr says:

    I see that all the human cockroaches that support our treasonous president-elect have crawled out from under their rocks to attack Meryl Streep . It must be hard to deal with the fact that this lying corrupt coward will soon be president. Hopefully he will have his Gregg Stillson moment sooner rather than later sparing us the future foretold in The Dead Zone.

    • Inspector clouseau says:

      Treasonous?? How’s that? You have to be in office first like Obama to be treasonous.LOL. You liberal fools are pathetic.Run to your safe place and cry.

      • Inspector clouseau says:

        Hey Dan the asshole–get your paranoid head out of your ass. You’re like a parrot repeating the liberal chant “It’s the Russians the Russians!! You fucking morons say the same shit when someone disagrees— oh what a racist oh must be Russian. You’re an ass hat wearing clown punk. Go cry punk.

      • dan2397 says:

        Inspector, are you actually a Russian operative tasked with trolling the web to oppose anything negative towards Donald Chump?
        Putin really needs to give you a raise.

    • Hank Hill says:

      You are absolutely right. The cockroaches came out in tuxes and gowns. Actors are a silly fragile lot and need to practice their craft. Who cares what some “Entertainer” says. Just more disconnected elitists that should not put there politics on the platform. If they feel so strongly they should go into politics and GTFO of LA LA Land.

      I could not care less about them. I want to be entertained and not preached to by a bunch of shallow morally corrupt ninnies.
      Your post could easily be construed as a threat.Tread lightly lilly-boy.

      • See Me - Feel Me says:

        Hank, wake up and smell the excrement. This guy you love is an “entertainer.” The joke is you don’t think DT is an elitist. He was handed a barrel of money which he wasted because he is incompetent and then we was handed another barrel of cash which he wasted. You found him on TV trying to entertain, are you that deluded.

      • dan2397 says:

        ‘Who cares what some “Entertainer” says’ – Exactly Hank.
        Maybe you should have run for POTUS instead, you certainly have displayed tons more maturity than the guy about to take office.

        They’re actors for effs sakes! Does it really matter what they say at awards shows? No, it doesn’t.

        How insecure must you be to get riled up about what some actors are saying about you? And this is the guy about to assume the highest office in the land.

        Based on that, Trump is going to be dominated by far smarter, far more sophisticated politicians the world over. See Putin here for starters.
        Heaven help us all.

  14. Who cares what a bunch of no talents think. There are no talented actors under the age of 75 left. All Hollywood produces now are comic book super hero trash movies. I haven’t gone to a movie theatre in over 6 years, as the last time I went the movie sucked.

  15. bearstearns says:

    Kind of explains why audiences want more movies like “Transformers” and fewer movies like “The Iron Lady” and why the Academy Awards has become such a boring show.

  16. anynamewilldo says:

    All of this stuff should have been thought about when Bernie Sanders was leading Trump by 12 points and Hillary by 7. We blew our last shot at getting another great social democrat like Franklin Roosevelt. But that’s all water under the bridge now.

    Meanwhile, since I can comment here, I’d like to address Mitch McConnell and his supporters regarding his statement today about Democrats needing to grow up and not resist Trumps selections.

    Mitch should remember that this last election was a mandate of voters of all the parties being fed up with both the Democrat and Republican, so called leadership.

    We, the voters were not willing to settle for the lesser of two evils which is continually fed to us. That’s why Trump and Sanders led in the polls during much of the campaign. As Donald Trump said several times, both he and Bernie Sanders were getting a raw deal in a rigged system and it was both the established Republican and Democratic parties trying to get rid of both of them. Why? Because they were outsiders who couldn’t be controlled by their party.

    So Mitch, your sweeping statement about democrats is to no avail. We the voters of all parties have very little faith, in either of the two main parties. Trump was elected leader, not because he was in your party. He was elected out of frustration and elected to get a handle on people like you.

    Just like he did last week when many of your cronies met behind closed doors to try and gut the ethics committee. Trump kicked in the door and they scrambled like a bunch of kids caught stealing in the candy store, then flew into an emergency meeting and reversed the votes to gut it. BTW nice try at having that meeting behind closed doors so we couldn’t see the names of who voted for it.

    In this instance, Trump behaved with the kind of leadership responsible voters want. There are many Democratic voters who are not opposing Trump’s selection of the people he wants installed to his cabinet. So enough with your school yard, nanny nanny goat behavior. Stop trying to alienate millions of democrats who didn’t want Hillary. It’s not about one party verses the other. It’s about a system and an economy that works for the nation and all the voters. Get it straight.

    If anybody from Kentucky reads this, I’m sure there’s got to be dozens of much better choices for your Senator than Mitch. He doesn’t serve you. Why keep putting in a crony of the Giant Corporations, that move off shore to skip out on taxes. He’s Corporate owned, the same as Hillary. You can’t see that?

  17. Carol Deiner says:

    Be interested to see how the audience size came out. Just a guess that numbers were way down. Nobody cares anymore. Cable service is being cut in record numbers in homes across America. It’s not enjoyable to watch Hollywood embarrass itself any more.

  18. Mike Flores says:

    10,000 people waited for him in Maryland, and when the train stopped at the train station they swarmed it trying to kill the President elect before the inauguration. He had been disguised as a sick person, and loaded on another train.
    The Inaugural was cancelled because of the threats against his life, and the fact no celebrities of the time would perform at it.The President’s name? Abraham Lincoln. Here is the story:
    10,000 people waited at the train station in dead silence. They were determined and stared at the train as it came up to the station. Someone yelled, “That’s it! That’s Lincoln’s train!” and 10,000 people swarmed the train, some climbing on top of it and stomping. Others pushed their arms through windows to grab Lincoln. Chants went through the crowd backing Jefferson Davis and the Confederacy followed by cheers. Occasionally someone would laughingly say Lincoln’s name to great boos from the crowd. Mary Todd, Abe’s wife took her two children and to stop damage to the train and passengers she stepped out and onto the platform. She gave her word “as a woman from Kentucky” that he was not on the train. The men in the crowd removed their hats. All was silent again. Men climbed off the train and passed by her, saying nothing. To have said anything vulgar to a woman in those days was the height of obscenity and showed a lower class background. They walked away as she entered the train. The train station was not in the deep South, it was in Baltimore, Maryland.
    The Pinkerton’s had received word that not only were there two plots to kill Lincoln on his way to Washington to become President, and that hundreds were forming mobs to get him. The Pinkertons had dressed Abe as a sick invalid and hidden him on a different train without any of the trains personnel knowing.
    200 Pinkertons had been dressed as laborers along the route and painted bridges leading to stations over and over again until Abe’s train passed. When the papers discovered what happened they all praised Mary, but they condemned Abe for entering Washington as a coward. One did an editorial cartoon with Lincoln dressed in a kilt and that was copied by newspapers all over the country. Others changed it to a woman’s dress as in the illustration on this page. Why was he so hated by the press and the crowds?
    Lincoln had never distinguished himself in politics before. He often stumbled in his speeches, did not seem to know at times what he was talking about. He would pepper his speeches with n*gger jokes from minstrel shows and jokes about whores in bordellos. Contrary to what Tarantino believes, the upper class did not speak that way. Using the “n” word was considered vulgar, even in the South. Yet these terms came easily to Lincoln, and drew wild cheers when he told them to people at fundraisers held by the railroads.
    The press was in shock. They had railed against Lincoln as an idiot who did not understand politics or America. The railroads wanted a man who would decimate the Indians using the Army and they did not want to pay for it. On the Democratic Party side Tammany Hall felt the free market reign had to be ended and people should pay for all services. To that end, they formed a fire department that charged people to defend their homes from fire. If you didn’t pay they would set fire to your home. They would not put the fire out until you did.
    Lincoln had received only 40% of the vote to become President, no President since has won with only 40% of the vote. There were several states he did not receive one single vote. He did not seem to understand how government worked and was only semi- literate.His crude jokes in front of women were not appreciated.
    What was the country like before Lincoln? How did government work? Over the next few days, the story every supporter of Lincoln thought was buried. They thought they had hidden the truth.
    Going back to original documents however, reveals the truth they have spent over a century re-writing, changing and hiding.

    “This is the Golden Globes — one of the few places left where America still honors the popular vote,”

    EXCEPT it isn’t. The awards are voted on by a selected Grouo of individuals who have to be invited, like any other arts academy.

    Oh and theee are plenty of walls and borders around those mansions. How about the five rows of security outside with AR-15s. I think that qualifies as a “border”

  23. Hollywood Elite Opinions. Who cares!

  24. A Daly says:

    This article contains an error in the lede. It references “the roughly half of Americans who supported Trump”. In reality, while 46.2% of voters voted for Trump, that was only 19.75% of Americans. I think it would be worth correcting this mistake because really, in a nation of 319 million, few artists should worry about alienating 19.75% of the people.

    • Hank Hill says:

      Sounds like fuzzy math to me. 1hundred million gun owners and upwards of 60 million religious voters
      are way more than 20%.
      If you want to talk about small percentages just look at the Hollywood tribe. Since when did the dimocratic party get high-jacked by elite trolls.
      The real base of the dims flushed the elites down the pooper.where they belong.

    • Nelson says:

      The US may have a polulation of 319 million, but are children permitted to vote? And who is to blame if a huge percentage of eligible voters just don’t feel like voting? Well, so you must admit that you are wrong in your calculations.
