Tina Fey and Amy Poehler made their triumphant return to the Golden Globes as hosts of the 2021 ceremony. Due to the pandemic, Fey broadcast live from New York’s iconic Rainbow Room and Poehler from LA’s Beverly Hilton, the usual host for the Globes banquet. The pair didn’t pull their punches, echoing critiques lobbed against The Hollywood Foreign Press Association for its lack of diversity.

Daniel Kaluuya won the award for Best Supporting Actor – Motion Picture for his work in “Judas and The Black Messiah,” but fell victim to a mishap we’ve all encountered at least once over the last year: he was on mute. When presenter Laura Dern tried to toss to Kaluuya to give his acceptance speech, she and the viewers at home were met with silence. At one point, Dern was prepared to accept the award on his behalf but, thankfully, Kaluuya turned his sound back on. “You tried to do me dirty,” he joked.

Suffice to say no one was more surprised that Jodie Foster won the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture than, well, Jodie Foster. Before accepting the award, she kissed her wife Alexandra Hedison, whom she watching the telecast with. The famously private star came out publicly at the 2013 Golden Gloves when she received the Cecil B. DeMille Award.

While accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award for her lifetime of achievement, Jane Fonda took the opportunity to call on the power-brokers in Hollywood to “expand that tent so that everyone rises and everyone’s story has a chance to be seen and heard.”

“Stories, they really can change people,” Fonda said. “But there’s a story we’ve been afraid to see and hear about ourselves in this industry, a story about which voices we respect and elevate and which we tune out, a story about who is offered a seat at the table and who is kept out of the rooms where decisions are made.”

Sterling K. Brown and Susan Kelechi Watson’s ‘It’s Good To Be Black’

“This Is Us” costars Sterling K. Brown and Susan Kelechi Watson were very aware of the controversy surrounding the Golden Globes. When they took the stage to present, they both joked that it was “Good to be Black” at the Golden Globes. The HFPA came under intense scrutiny in the run up to the Globes ceremony for its lack of diversity.

A Moving Tribute For Chadwick Boseman

The late actor posthumously won the Golden Globe for Best Actor Motion Picture – Drama for his enthralling performance in “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.” Boseman’s widow, Taylor Simone Ledward, accepted the award on his behalf, fighting back tears as she delivered a powerful tribute to the star.

“He would say something beautiful, something inspiring, something that would amplify that little voice inside of all  of us that tells you, ‘You can,’ that tells you to keep going, that calls you back to what you are meant to be doing at this moment in history.” Ledward Boseman said.

“Nomadland” director Chloé Zhao made history becoming the first Asian-American woman to win a Golden Globe for best director and only the second woman EVER to win the honour. The only other female recipient of the award was Barbra Streisand, who won for “Yentl” nearly 40 years ago.

“This award belongs to the whole ‘Nomadland’ team,” Zhao said. “Thank you, everyone who made it possible for me to do what I love.”
