Darkest Hour: Gary Oldman SLAMMED Golden Globes ‘Meaningless, BOYCOTT the f***ing thing’

The 59-year-old actor looks set for Oscars glory after picking up Best Actor in the Drama category at last night’s Golden Globes.

Upon winning for his performance as Churchill in Darkest Hour, Oldman told the audience: “I feel very humbled and surprised to have been asked to this stage.”

However his words were a far cry from his comments on the Golden Globes just a couple of years ago.

Speaking with Playboy magazine in 2014, the actor said: ““[It is] a meaningless event.”

Oldman continued: “The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is kidding you that something’s happening. They’re f**king ridiculous. 

“There’s nothing going on at all. It’s 90 nobodies having a w**k. 

“Everybody’s getting drunk, and everybody’s sucking up to everybody. Boycott the f**king thing.”

The actor stars as Churchill in Darkest Hour, which focuses on the first few weeks of his time as Prime Minister during World War II.


While Oldman is considered by many movie fans to be one of the greatest actors of his generation, he is yet to win an Oscar – something that might change at this year’s Academy Awards.

Darkest Hour is out in UK cinemas on Friday.
