AceShowbiz - At the 2019 Golden Globes, which took place on Sunday, January 6, Chris Pine presented the prestigious Cecil B. DeMille award. The award went to his "Hell or High Water" co-star Jeff Bridges, who he said "made eccentric characters truly iconic."
"Jeff has set a standard of excellence," Pine said of Brigdes. "He's made eccentric characters truly iconic -- and yes, I am talking about 'El Duderino' -- and ordinary characters extraordinary and noble."
"I'm so challenged up here, because there's so many people to thank," the winner shared after given standing ovation for the career achievement award. After thanking to his family members in attendance, he revealed that he arrived while wearing his late father, Lloyd Bridges', cufflinks in celebration. "We’re alive! We can make a difference! We can turn this ship in the way we want to go!"
"Roma earned Best Director - Motion Picture for Academy-winning helmer Alfonso Cuaron. Cuaron, whose credits include "Gravity" and "Children of Men", said during his speech, "I feel a little bit like [I'm] cheating winning this award, because most of what I was doing was just witnessing and enjoying Marina de Tavira and Yalitza Aparicio just exist on the screen."
Rachel Bronahan later was announced as the best actress in TV series - Musical or Comedy. It was her second consecutive Globe for her role on Amazon's "The The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel".
After receiving the trophy from "This Is Us" stars Justin Hartley, Chrissy Metz and Sterling K. Brown, she gushed, "Our village is a matriarchy, led by Amy Sherman-Palladino." She also added a special shout-out to her partner Jason Ralph, saying, "Jason, I love you. I wouldn't be here without you."

As artists, we must fight back."
