Golden Globe Awards 2021: winners

Wins for The Crown, The Queen's Gambit, Schitt's Creek, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.


The Golden Globe Awards are were held at both Beverly Hills & New York City before a masked frontline workers in the two venues.

Big winners were Netflix for The Crown and The Queen’s Gambit.

Other multiple wins went to Schitt’s Creek, Borat Subsequent Movie, Soul and Nomadland.

“So celebrities can stay safely at home,” said Tina Fey.

Yep they are all zooming.

There is also a laugh track for the opening monologue, which is so awful it is ruining the whole thing. Not sure what the answer is… don’t do one?

Their monologue also addresses the fact there are no black journalists in the HFPA with a few gags and joking about how many Streaming movies are nominated for Film. 2020 a year like no other even for awards….

“A lot of flashy junk got nominated,” says Poheler.

“But even with stupid things inclusivity is important and the HFPA has no black journalists, maybe you didn’t get the memo…. you gotta change that,” Fey added.

There was a tech problem with the first winner, Daniel Kaluuya, but he got a speech in afterwards. Second winner John Boyega didn’t know if he was supposed to start his acceptance speech.

Winners are in bold:

Jane Fonda accepts on stage in Beverly Hills.

“I’m so moved to receive this honour, thank you,” she said.

I love that she is referencing modern shows I May Destroy You, Ramy and Nomadland.
