Last night’s awards show, like most awards shows, gave me a moment of reflection on the state of our industry and on the direction in which we are heading. With underdog victories for the bold, off-the-cuff TRANSPARENT and the CW’s Hispanic star, Gina Rodriguez, along with the continued success of comediennes Tina Fey and Amy Poehler and Hollywood’s expression of creative solidarity with Charlie Hebdo, this year’s Golden Globes were a symbol of progress, resiliency, and a commitment to fearless storytelling.
As we head in to a new year, it’s inspiring to know that we will not shy away from difficult subjects or fail to stand for our creative freedoms. As difficult as life may be today, everything happens for a reason and amidst the craziness there are always possibilities for all of us. Here’s to another year, full steam ahead.
