Transcript for Glenn Close's inspiring message to women at the Golden Globes
Well, as it golden globes awards were on last night which went very light on politics and had a few surprise wins and losses. Did you guys watch? Yeah. Yeah. We all did. Did you? No, I did not. I did not. So what did you think? That's why I talk to you all. So no one seemed more surprised than my friend Glenn close. You know, Glenn is a marvelous actor. Great. I did see the clip and she looked shocked because she was totally shocked, and she won for best actress in a drama. Her acceptance speech got very personal. Take a look. I'm thinking of my mom who really sublimb mated herself to my father her whole life, and in her 80s she said I feel I haven't accomplished anything. Women, we're nurturers. That's what's expected of us. We have our children and our husbands if we're lucky enough and our partners, whoever, but we have to find personal fulfillment. We have to follow our dreams. We have to say I can do that, and I should be allowed to do that. Bravo. She was fabulous. She's an extraordinary woman, you know. She's -- she started this organization called bring change to mind, to get folks talking about mental illness. I mean, Glenn is one of those people who sees something needs to to be done and she goes and she does it. I love her. I love her. I loved awe authentic her speech was because a lot of people write down the names of everyone they want to thank and everyone has their own style but you could tell how shocked she was. She gets up there and the words came out. It's what she was feeling. She's over 70 and has had such a career for herself. The woman in the audience were crying and nodding their head with everything she said. There were a lot of people criticizing the fact that lady gaga didn't win. Meghan, you have your thoughts on that. But hearing her speak meant too much. I love Glenn close as well. She's an acting icon. I was pissed lady gaga didn't win. I think that "A star is born" got robbed all the way around. I loved the movie. I love lady gaga. I love Bradley cooper. I think they're amazing actors and I hope the oscars give them due. And I love Glenn close. This is no shade at her. You know, we root for our teams. She won best song. She did. What she said was very important I think because -- I looked up something. Because Carl young, the great psychologist, his quote was, nothing has a stronger influence on a child than the unlived life of a parent. Oh wow. Yeah. That's a pretty heavy thing, and that's what she's talking about. You know, when the women in our lives are not following their dreams, as she says, and just doing what's expected and the usual without -- it's perfectly great to raise children and have a life with your husband or whatever and family, but it's also important to have the thing that -- your bliss as they call it. And when you don't have that, it afcts the children, I think. They see an unhappy -- all of our mothers are sort of unhappy. I don't know about yours bought I'm talking about my generation. The movie that she won for, "The wife", is about a woman who sort of follows her husband and lives a life unfilled. It has an interesting ending and I recommend that you see it. The only thing I would say, having gone through it myself as a mom, knowing that my child lives a good life and lives their dreams, that gives me so much fulfillment. And her mom raised Glenn close. How incredible that is. That's an accomplishment of itself. It is an accomplishment of itself, but it is hard for a lot of women to look back and know that they couldn't -- they couldn't make the move forward because everything was pushing them to do what was expected of them. Right. And we're lucky enough to have that. Our kids can see that we're pushing through, but for all those women who didn't have that opportunity, this is -- this is the bitch of life, isn't it? Yeah. That every group changes things a little bit, and so it isn't as much as the folks who came before would have liked it to be so that they could catch up, but this is what happens. This is what we do. They've done so much so that we could do what we're doing now. That we can all sit here. And stand on their shoulders. Were there any fashion standouts? I do watch the golden globes for the fashion. Of course. I will say I do enjoy that and several things stood out to me. Gaga didn't win the golden globe but I felt she did win for the night in terms of her fashion. I really loved the dress that she wore. She could put ten of her little monsters in that dress. She could. It's couture by Valentino. I don't know that I loved the blue hair. I felt like it looked a little like the character from "Inside out" a little bit. It's an homage to Judy Garland in "A star is born". I saw video of Halle berry, Julie Roberts and Charlize Theron all together. They're all over 50 and they were killing it. They looked so beautiful, and I -- because I just turned 50, I thought, okay, if this is what 50 looks like, I'm here for it. Halle berry was in a burgundy gown by Murad, beautiful. Julia Roberts I also thought won the night. It's how you wear it. She's the most confident. Her smile, the rooms just opens up. It's how you wear a dress and in that case the beautiful pants. Just gorgeous. And Charlize Theron in dior. She looked so statue-esque. I think she's almost six feet tall. She looks like a statue, just absolutely gorgeous. And Halle is Halle, just fabulous. And then the men -- go ahead. I was going to say a shoutout to Sandra oh. She was the first asian-american to host the golden globes, host an awards show. Her parents are Korean. She was actually bornn Otta da,beli Amazing. Just give a quick shutout to the men, Cody R, he had sh jumpsuit on that was crazy androgynousnd amazing. And then Billy porter, I mean, come on. Yes, yes. Come on. Let's not wear the black and white tuxes. Let's do that. He can go to a bull fight in that. Ole. Darren Chris had a gorgeous suit on too, who won. You didn't need to watch it. That's why I don't. One more thing was Christian bale basically said that he -- he plays Dick Cheney in the movie called "Vice" and he said he would like to thank for the inspiration to Satan. On Twitter they clapped back. He also said I played the least charismatic man in the world. Mitch Mcconnell is next. I was like, this is shade. Well, you know, what's he going to do? We're going to talk about Kevin hart and the oscars when we come back. We're going to talk about a lot more stuff.
