Golden Globes 2021: Winners list

The biggest winners of the 78th Golden Globes were “Nomadland” and “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.”

The two films earned awards for best picture; “Nomadland” for the drama category and “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm” for the comedy or musical division.

Among notable achievements of the night, Chloe Zhao, the director behind “Nomadland,” became the first woman to win the best director award since 1984 when Barbara Streisand secured an award for “Yentl.”

Despite nominations for Black actors and filmmakers being sparse, winners were not in short supply. John Boyega, Daniel Kaluuya, Andra Day and the late Chadwick Boseman were all honored for their work during Sunday’s ceremony.

Additionally, Jon Batiste secured a best score win alongside Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. “Soul” took home the award for best animated film, earning co-directors Kemp Powers and Pete Docter trophies.

For the television awards “Schitt’s Creek,” “Queen’s Gambit” and “The Crown” dominated across acting and best series categories.

Much of the broadcast was overshadowed by the recent revelation that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association did not have any Black voters.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted the ceremony from opposite coasts, and didn’t pull any punches with the HFPA.

“We should have told you,” Poehler said. “Everyone is upset with the HFPA and their choices. Look, a lot of flashy garbage got nominated, but that happens. That is their thing. But a number of Black actors and Black-led projects were overlooked.”

“But even with stupid things, inclusivity is important,” Fey added. “There’s no Black members of the HFPA. You have to change that.”

The HFPA also used the broadcast to issue a statement about their plans to include more Black journalists and other minority reporters in its organization in the future.

“Tonight while we celebrate the work of artists from around the globe, we recognize we have our own work to do,” Helen Hoehne, vice president of the HFPA said. “Like in film and television, Black representation is vital. We must have Black journalists in our organization.”

Many of Sunday’s winners used their acceptance speeches as a time to call for diversity and inclusivity in the industry at large.

“In the spirit of inclusion, I hope that this time next year, this ceremony reflects the true breadth and diversity of the film and television being made today, because there is so much more to be celebrated,” said Dan Levy, the writer and one of the stars of “Schitt’s Creek.”

Taylor Simone Ledward, wife of the late Chadwick Boseman, accepted the best actor in a motion picture drama award on his behalf Sunday.

Boseman, known to many as King T’Challa, the Black Panther, from Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, was a recurring face in the awards world for iconic performances in films like “42,” “Get on Up” and “Marshall.”

“He would thank God,” Ledward said, tearfully. “He would thank his parents. He would thank his ancestors for their guidance and their sacrifice.”

As Ledward spoke, the broadcast cut to a number of nominees watching from home as they reacted to her words, many holding back tears or wiping them from their faces.

“He would say something beautiful, something inspiring, something that would amplify that little voice that tells you ‘you can,’ that tells you ‘keep going,’ that calls you back to what you are meant to be doing at his moment in history,” she said.
