Recap: The 72nd Golden Globe Awards

     Richard Linklater’s epic Boyhood—which was shot over the course of 12 years—took home the award for Best Drama at last night’s Golden Globes and netted the filmmaker the prize for Best Director. Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel beat out a crowded field that included the acclaimed films Birdman, Into the Woods, Pride and St. Vincent to win in the category of Best Comedy or Musical. Julianne Moore (Still Alice) and Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything) won for Best Actress and Best Actor in a drama. On the TV side, Showtime’s The Affair won for best dramatic series with Amazon’s Transparent winning in the comedy category. And The Batman himself, Michael Keaton, took home a best actor award for his work in Birdman.

     The ceremony lived up to the show’s reputation of being a more casual, irreverent version of the Oscars with live photobombs, a recurring skit poking fun at North Korea’s response to The Interview and Tina Fey and Amy Poehler ripping Bill Cosby in light of a string of sexual assault allegations. In one of the evening’s most poignant moments, the President of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Theo Kingma, got a standing ovation for a brief speech underscoring the importance of free speech and free artistic expression, referencing both North Korea and the attacks in Paris .

Exclusive Interview: 804 Street Media CEO Lance Cooper

Last week, the staff of WITIN RADIO had the opportunity to meet with 804 Street Media CEO & Editor In Chief , Lance Cooper.During the interview we had the opportunity to speak with Lance on his life's work, his company's Social Media presence, and the state of Black America.

When did you launch 804 Street Media & what was the catalyst for you launching 804 Street Media ?

"The official brand evolved into a business around 2013, but the grind to put the 804 (Richmond. Virginia) on the map started back in the 1990’s. Everything started with hip-hop. In 1997 I had a rap group here in Richmond. Virginia was on the rise, we were actually the only rap group from Richmond to share a stage with Nas. This was around the time "It Was Written" dropped. Eventually, however the group parted ways. I put the microphone down and started promoting other artists. Coming from one of  the hardest places to "get on" from is Virginia, because support on every level…
