It couldn’t be a pandemic-era Golden Globes without some glitches, including some of the low tech variety… And it’s not a Hollywood awards season without a diversity controversy. But to the standout winners: Nomadland won best drama film. We’re claiming Sacha Baron Cohen’s Borat Subsequent Moviefilm best comedy gong for Oz, along with his best comedy actor win. Chadwick Boseman’s posthumous best dramatic actor win was an emotional affair… On the best actress side, Rosamund Pike won for comedy I Care A Lot and Andra Day for the drama film The United States Vs Billie Holiday. And congrats also to Anya Taylor-Joy – she won best actress in a limited series for The Queen’s Gambit making her top frock and US$1.5 million in Tiffany diamonds worth the effort. Also in TV awards – go The Crown… It won best drama series, with the unstoppable (except that it ended…) Schitt’s Creek winning best comedy. A complete list of winners is here. But the important thing is there were some well-dressed people to gawk at as others kept it cosy and comfortable.
