Promo for the end of the second season of "The White Lotus" (HBO)
Tonight (between Tuesday and Wednesday) the 80th Golden Globes ceremony was held in Hollywood, after a one-year hiatus caused by a boycott of the foreign press booth in Hollywood.
The organization was accused of racism and exclusion, and even more than that, since for years it was composed only of a few dozen white-skinned journalists from around the world.
Its captains promised to do a thorough house check and indeed added hundreds more journalists to their ranks, including some from Israel.
They even invited the black comedian Jarrod Carmichael to host the first ceremony after the storm, and he, to make it clear that the repair they are doing is not so simple, did not keep silent about it in his opening monologue.
"I'll tell you why I'm here," he told the audience.
"I'm here because I'm black."
Carmichael told how he got into this role, and continued to sting the booth of foreign journalists at every opportunity.
"One minute you're making mint tea at home, and the next minute you're invited to be the black face of a white organization fighting for its life," he said.
"Life really comes at you fast."

During the ceremony, Eddie Murphy received the Cecil B. DeMille Award, which is given to film actors for lifetime achievement, and at the end of his speech he gave advice to actors starting out in the field.
"I want to let you know that there is a definitive recipe you can follow to achieve success, prosperity, longevity and peace of mind," Murphy said.
"It's a recipe I've stuck to my whole career. It's very simple, just do these three things: pay your taxes, mind your own business, and keep Will Smith's wife's name out of your fucking mouth!"

Jennifer Coolidge won the award for best actress in a miniseries for her role in "The White Lotus", and as such she delivered a funny, sincere and touching speech without any preparation.
She shared how she struggled to land roles over the years in the industry, and was able to work just the right little bit to land the next role.
She thanked Reese Witherspoon for bringing her to "Not Just Blonde," as well as creators Ryan Murphy (with whom she worked on "Nip/Tuck" and "Glee") and Michael Patrick King ("Sex and the City," "Poverty").
But all this was to get her to the point: at the height of her long speech, almost four minutes that was not interrupted until she was done, Coolidge thanked Mike White, the creator of "The White Lotus" (with spoilers for the second season, beware if you haven't watched).
"I want you to know that I had such big dreams and expectations as a younger person, but what happened is that they kind of fade in the face of life and whatever," she said.
"I thought I was going to be Queen of Monaco even though someone else did it. But I had these huge ideas. And then you get old, oh, it's going to be shit. And Mike White, you gave me hope. You gave me a new beginning. Even if it's the end, because You killed me, but even if that's the end, you've changed my life in a million different ways. My neighbors talk to me and stuff like that. I've never been invited to a single party in Hollywood, and now everybody's inviting me! I just—you know, this is for you, Mike White."
She even added and told about the virtues of White, who could not stop the tears of excitement, as a person who cares about the world, about people, his friends and animals.
"He gives me so much excitement to be - you make people want to live longer, and I don't. So anyway, I just want to say, Mike White, I love you to death," she concluded to a standing ovation from the audience.
