Age is no barrier at 77th Golden Globe Awards
Hollywood is renowned for worshipping the young and beautiful at the expense of older industry veterans.
But this year, it seems age was no barrier with a large number of category winners in the over 50 age group, announced at today's gala event in Los Angeles.
Being a proud Australian, it would be remiss not to mention up front our very own Over Fifty Still Fabulous, Russell Crowe, who won the Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series or Motion Picture made for Television for his role in The Loudest Voice.
Russell wasn't at the event to accept the award - he's still fighting fires on his doorstep at Nana Glen near Coffs Harbour in NSW.
Laura Dern - didn't you just love her in Big Little Lies? - won Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture for Marriage Story.
Renee Zellweger won Best Actress in a Drama Movie for her portrayal of Judy Garland and Brad Pitt got the gong for Best Supporting Actor for Once Upon A Time in Hollywood.
The huge increase in production to support and provide content for the ever-expanding digital world has provided much-needed employment for the entire sector and it's good to see industry veterans getting work and accolades.
