Golden Globes (2017)

January 8, 2017:

Tom Hiddleston attended the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards at the Beverly Hills Hilton. The Night Manager had a total of four nominations: Best Actor in a Limited Series, Miniseries or Film Made for Television (Tom Hiddleston), Best Supporting Actor in a Limited Series, Miniseries or Film Made for Television (Hugh Laurie), Best Supporting Actress in a Limited Series, Miniseries or Film Made for Televsion (Olivia Colman), and Best Limited Series or Film Made for Television (The Night Manager). 

The night got off to a fun start when Nicole Kidman crashed Tom's red carpet interview. She made sure to let us know what Tom was wearing - I guess I can retire now. 

The Golden Globes turned out to be a Golden Day when Tom, Hugh, and Olivia (who did not attend) all won acting awards for the series.

In his acceptance speech, Tom dedicated his award to relief workers: The idea that we could provide some relief and entertainment for the people who work for Unicef, Médecins Sans Frontières, and the World Food Programme who are fixing the world in the places where it is broken made me immensely proud so I dedicate this award those out there who are doing their best. Thank you. 

Tom Hiddleston received some criticism for his speech and went so far as to post an apology on his Facebook. I think we can all relate to being nervous and your words not coming out exactly as you intended too but... a lot of people were motivated by his speech. We were hosting a fundraiser for Unicef UK in honor of Tom's birthday.  During his winner's interview, Variety's Jenelle Riley mentioned to Tom that she owed him $20 and that she was going to donate it to Unicef. Prior to the event Jenelle told me about the bet with Tom and we agreed that we would each donate $20 to the Unicef UK fundraiser. And we did! You can say that Tom himself has indirectly donated to our fundraiser! I don't know if it was his speech, or Jenelle Riley, or a combination of both but we received more than £1,000 in new donations in the 24 hours after Tom Hiddleston won - and closed out that year's fundraiser a month later with more than £14,000! We are hosting another Unicef UK fundraiser this year if anyone is interested in donating - we also have fun prizes you can win!
