Groundbreaking LGBT+ film Moonlight wins best drama at the Golden Globes


Moonlight may have only walked away with one award at last night’s Golden Globes, but at least it was one of the biggest.

The LGBT+ film walked away with the coveted Best Drama Motion Picture, fending off tough competition from Lion, Hacksaw Ridge, Hell or High Water and Manchester by the Sea in the category.

When he went up to collect the award, director Barry Jenkins said: “If you have seen this film … tell a friend, tell a friend, tell a friend.”

The film is based on the play In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue by Tarell Alvin McCraney, and has been hotly tipped for further success at the Academy Awards later this year.

GT gave Moonlight full marks after seeing it last year, hailing it as “a stunning faultless piece of gay cinema.”

GT added: “It’s almost as if emotion, tension and wonder spill from the screen like waves throughout the movie.

“Using the haunting orchestral score interspersed with hip hop and rap from car stereos and the incredibly personal, tight close up shots of the characters living some of the most difficult years of their lives, no one who watches Moonlight can possibly leave untouched by this fantastic film.”

Meanwhile, La La Land – starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone – was the big winner of the night, taking home seven awards.

However, one of the most talked about moments was when two of Hollywood’s most famous superheroes were caught making out during the ceremony.

Moonlight will open in UK cinemas on 17 February.
