Golden Globes 2021: Nomadland and The Crown win big – live | Film
So without a red carpet, it was a bit harder to assemble one of these but we did it! Plenty of awkwardly framed at-home video screengrabs here for you:
One of the big winners of the night was Chadwick Boseman, whose work in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom will go down as another pitch perfect performanace in a career cut tragically short last year. The first black posthumous winner of a Golden Globe is remembered here by those he worked with:
Nothing was as funny tonight as Tracy Morgan calling Soul SAL
While the HFPA offered up a fleeting and frankly pathetic segment on their need to improve diversity, Jane Fonda managed something far more effective. Here’s her speech in case you missed it:
In case you need a reminder of tonight’s big winners then here is a reminder of tonight’s big winners:
WINNER: Nomadland – best drama
Nomadland! Easily the most deserving nominee here and a welcome winner. It’s a beautiful film and given the HFPA’s usual choices, it would have made more sense to see something more conventional like The Trial of the Chicago 7 win big. A nice end to a weird evening.
WINNER: Andra Day (The United States vs Billie Holiday) – best actress in a drama
Well, Jason Sudeikis wasn’t the only actor in a hoodie tonight. Joaquin Phoenix just stumbled out in one to announce that Andra Day is the surprise winner of an award that many assumed would go to Carey Mulligan or perhaps Frances McDormand. A very emotional Day is also extremely surprised and, in a category that’s still somewhat up for play, it will help secure her an Oscar nomination.
WINNER: Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm) – best actor in a musical or comedy
Important that James Corden didn’t win and deserved that Sacha Baron Cohen did, bringing back a character we thought we were done with for a surprisingly necessary and smart sequel. A big night for Brits!
And here’s a recent long interview we did with Sacha Baron Cohen:
WINNER: Borat Subsequent Moviefilm – best musical or comedy
The most important news here is that Sia’s awful autism drama Music didn’t win. The second most important news here is that Ryan Murphy’s awful musical The Prom didn’t win. Sacha Baron Cohen thanks the “all-white” HFPA for the award and goes onto take some potshots at Rudy Giuliani because again, why not. He’s probably about to win another award …
