2019 was an important year in film. From big-budget blockbusters such as “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” and “Avengers: Endgame,” to biopics such as “Rocketman” and “Harriett,” audiences were entranced by stellar performances and original stories, as well as cutting-edge visual effects. On Feb. 9, the 92nd Academy Awards were held, and historic achievements were made that left members in the audience and viewers watching at home astonished.
Just five days after ringing in the New Year, the 77th annual Golden Globe Awards took place in Beverly Hills, Calif. on Jan. 5. This was a memorable event where all of Hollywood’s finest gathered together to be recognized for their monumental accomplishments in the film industry. The awards and achievements of the celebrities were unforgettable, and stars that strutted the red carpet dressed in high-fashion, designer pieces kept heads turning all night long.
