The 72nd Golden Globe Awards took place last night, and our very talented Hunger Games cast did not go unrepresented: Julianne Moore, our fantastic President Coin in the Mockingjay films, took home the statuette for Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama, coming out victorious against other tremendous actresses such as Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston, Rosamund Pike and Felicity Jones. You can watch her heartfelt acceptance speech above, as well as her Press Room interview below.
Julianne is, of course, not new to these prestigious honors awarded by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. She has been nominated for a Golden Globe 9 times in her career, and she had already won one time previous to this year, when in 2013 she took the Actress in a Mini-Series category for her role as Sarah Palin in Game Change. This year she was actually nominated twice, also in the Comedy/Musical category for her role in Maps to the Stars, but that award went to Amy Adams.
Lorde, who held the sole nomination for our franchise in the Best Original Song category for her Mockingjay Part 1 song “Yellow Flicker Beat,” did not win as the award went to Selma.
This performance is definitely giving Julianne a lot of buzz as awards season moves forward. Do you think this means we could have yet another Academy Award winner as part of our Hunger Games cast? We’re keeping our fingers crossed for her. In the meantime, congratulations to Julianne on this incredible honor, it couldn’t be more well deserved!
