Gay-themed ‘Moonlight’ wins Best Drama at Golden Globes

The film was nominated in five other categories: Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role, Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Original Score.

Screenplay writer Barry Jenkins told the LA Times, “The whole point of this film for Tarrell [Alvin McCraney, the playwright of ‘In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue,’ which inspired the film] and I was to tell a very truthful story about how we grow up…. It was about getting it right… and speaking truth to power.”
