With what is Hollywood concerned?
Whether their delicate sensibilities are able to deal with the incoming administration of President-elect Donald Trump.
Is Hollywood in the mood to party?
On Sunday, the movie industry will gather for the Golden Globes, which are regularly one of the most freewheeling and frothiest award shows of the year. Champagne will flow. Punchlines will fly.
But the tone of this year’s ceremony may be different, and not just because it will be the first time in nearly a decade that someone other than Ricky Gervais or the Tina Fey-Amy Poehler duo is hosting.
Jimmy Fallon will emcee this year’s show, to be broadcast live from Beverly Hills, Calif., by NBC at 8 p.m. EST Sunday. But the transition on the minds of Hollywood is the one taking place in Washington on January 20. The election of Donald Trump has loomed over this year’s awards season, where the movie industry’s usual self-congratulatory toasting has been mixed with a foreboding sense of dread.
“We are living in very troubled times,” Kenneth Lonergan, writer and director of one of the season’s favorites, “Manchester by the Sea,” said Wednesday at the National Board of Review Awards. “How troubled, we don’t know yet. It’s going to be a lot of trouble, or it might be bad trouble like we’ve never seen.”
Jimmy Fallon promised Trump jokes for he called “the first and maybe the last party that we’ll have in 2017.”

@ABCPolitics Why so melodramatic, ABC? Why not acknowledge that half the country is thrilled at having a president not under investigation?

Looks like the people nailed it.
The Hollywood types need to stop being like Pajama Boy.
Trump’s coming January 20th and you better get used to it…
