The 76th Golden Globes were last Sunday, and I heard Sandra Oh had a BIG night. That fills my heart with joy because I still miss her on Grey’s Anatomy as Christina Yang, but I am glad she is still out here f*cking up the game. 2018 was also a big year for adaptations, so it’s not surprise that books really had a big night at the Golden Globes. Today we are sharing the books that were the Real MVPs.
Codename Villanelle by Luke Jennings: When one of the world’s deadliest assassins murders an influential Russian politician, she draws the attention of an MI6 agent who is tasked to find the responsible assassin. The book was adapted into the critically acclaimed BBC series, Killing Eve, starring Sandra Oh who won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Television Series – Drama.
If Beale Street Could Talk by James Baldwin: Tish and Fonny plan to marry, but Fonny is falsely accused of crime and imprisoned, and their families must fight to clear Fonny’s name. Regina King portrays Tish’s mother, Sharon Rivers, in the adaptation and won the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture.
Ultimate Fallout #4 by Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli (Artist): After the death of Peter Parker, the world is introduced to Miles Morales who picks up the mantle of Spider-Man. Miles entered the cinematic world in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which won the Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature Film.
The Wife by Meg Wolitzer: As Joan and Joseph Castleman fly to Helsinki for Joseph to receive a prestigious award, Joan, who has spent forty years focusing on Joseph’s career over her own literary talents, has finally decided she is done. At the 76th Golden Globes, Glenn Close won Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama for playing the role of Joan Castleman in the adaptation of The Wife.
