Well, that was something.
Sunday’s Golden Globes were even more unpredictable and chaotic than usual, thanks in large part to the show’s hybrid virtual format. The three-hour ceremony was plagued by frequent sound issues and awkward small talk between nominees over Zoom, with fashion ranging from jaw-dropping gowns (Amanda Seyfried) to tie-dye hoodies (Jason Sudeikis). The telecast took on an even more casual feel than years past, as nominees appeared from their homes with friends, partners, kids and dogs, and some imbibed throughout the event. (“Mank” director David Fincher could be seen taking shots when his film lost.)
Amid the mayhem were some genuinely terrific moments, as “Nomadland” drove off with the night’s biggest award for best drama, and Jodie Foster (“The Mauritanian”) and Andra Day (“The United States vs. Billie Holiday”) appeared genuinely surprised by their unexpected acting wins. Here are more of the best and worst moments from the show, which was hosted bicoastally by Tina Fey in New York and Amy Poehler in Los Angeles.

They also used their platform to address the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s lack of Black voting members. “Maybe you guys didn’t get the memo because your workplace is the back booth of a French McDonald’s, but you’ve got to change that,” Fey said. “So here’s to changing it.”
