Here are pictures of some Africans that repped at the Golden Globes held last night in Beverly Hills, California,

Actor Chiwetel Ejiofor at the 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel. He was up for a Golden Globe for his role as Thabo Mbeki in the biopic, Endgame. The award, though went to Kevin Bacon.


  • Kevin Bacon, Taking Chance

  • Jeremy Irons, Georgia O’Keefe

Ejiofor was born in London’s Forest Gate to Nigerian parents. His father, Arinze, was a doctor, and his mother, Obiajulu, was a pharmacist. He is also nominated for the 2010 Black Reel Awards – Best Supporting Actor

Actor, Edi Mue Gathegi at GBK’s Gift Lounge for the 2010 Golden Globes Nominees and Presenters. Edi is an American film, stage and television actor. He is best known for his recurring character Dr. Jeffrey “Big Love” Cole in the television series House; as Cheese in the 2007 film Gone Baby Gone and as Laurent in the films Twilight and New Moon.

Edi was born in Nairobi, Kenya but grew up in Albany, California.

And of course South African film director Neill Blomkamp who got a Golden Globe nod for his block-buster movie, District 9. I think that some of my Nigerian friends were relieved that Neill did not win in this category! The award for Best Screenplay went to…


  • Jason Reitman and Sheldon Turner, Up in the Air
  • Neill Blomkamp and Terri Tatchell, District 9
  • Mark Boal, The Hurt Locker
  • Nancy Meyers, It’s Complicated

    Garcelle is nothing less than beautiful. I remember I used to come to my elementary school a lot to see her sons at their soccer practice… this was many moons ago yet she still looks the SAME… just amazing. I never knew she was Haitian until the recent events. My heart goes out to all Haitians during this disaster recovery.
