Here are the 2021 Golden Globes Winners
The 2021 Golden Globes are here, with hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler on opposite coasts (NYC and L.A. respectively), to give out the awards as chosen by the enigmatic Hollywood Foreign Press Association. It should be an interesting night, given that the HFPA is under fire for the lack of Black nominees, including no nominations for Spike Lee's Da 5 Bloods and Michaela Cole's I May Destroy You.
Tina and Amy did not shy away from the controversy and explained to their audiences at The Rainbow Room and The Beverly Hilton, made up of first responders, just what the HFPA is. "The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is made up of around 90 no-Black journalists who attend movie junkets each year in search of a better life," Tina said. "We say 'around 90' because a couple of them might be ghosts and it's rumored that the German member is just a sausage that somebody drew a little face on."
Amy added, "Everybody is understandably upset at the HFPA and their choices. Look, a lot of flashy garbage got nominated, which always happens. That's their thing. But a number of black actors and black-led projects were overlooked."
"We all know that award shows are stupid," Tina followed. "The point is, even with stupid things, inclusivity is important, and there are no Black members of the Hollywood Foreign Press. I realize HFPA, maybe you guys didn't get the memo, because your workplace is the back of a French McDonalds, but you guys have got to change that. And here's to changing it."
On the film side: Nomadland won Best Drama and Chloe Zhao won Best Director.
Andy Samberg, who was nominated for Palm Springs, lost to Sacha but it was cool to see Joanna Newsom by his side:
The late Chadwick Boseman won Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama for Ma Rainey's Black Bottom. while Andra Day won for The United States Vs Billie Holiday.
Minari won for Best Foreign Language Film.
The first award of the night was Best Supporting Actor in a Film and went to Daniel Kaluuya for Judas & The Black Messiah whose acceptance speech, where he quoted Nipsey Hussle, was almost cut off due to a bad connections.
Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross and Jon Batiste won Best Original Score for Pixar's Soul, which also won Best Animated Film. Trent joked that this is the first thing he's ever worked on that he could show his kids.
Diane Warren, Laura Pausini, and Niccolò Agliardi and won Best Original song for "Io Si (Seen)" from The Life Ahead.
On the television front, The Crown won Best Television Series Drama, while Emma Corrin and Josh O'Connor won Best Actress and Actor in a Television Drama for their roles as Princess Diana and Prince Charles, and Gillian Anderson for Best Supporting Actress as Margaret Thatcher.
The Queen's Gambit won best Limited Series, and Ana Taylor-Joy won Best Actress in the lead role.
John Boyega won Best Supporting Actor in a Television Program for his role in Steve McQueen's Small Axe.
Schitt's Creek won Best Television Series Musical or Comedy and Catherine O'Hara won Best Actress.
Jason Sudeikis won Best Actor in Ted Lasso.
The amazing Norman Lear, who will be 99 in July, was this year's recipient of the Carol Burnett LIfetime Achievement Award for his groundbreaking work in television, including All in the Family, The Jeffersons, Good Times, One Day at a Time, and more. Meanwhile, Jane Fonda gave an inspiring speech calling for more diversity (and mentioning I May Destroy You) as this year's recipient of the Cecil B Demille Award.
The Golden Globes are known for drunken acceptance speeches and the virtual nature of this year's ceremony doesn't allow for that as much, they had Maya Rudolph and Keenan Thompson on hand as Beverly Jackfruit and Francois Jean-Rudy who won the made-up award of "Least Original Song in a Telefilm, Dramedy or Comma."
