Here’s the list of 2021 Golden Globe winners
The Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. members who vote on the Golden Globes may be under scrutiny, but the 2021 ceremony went full steam ahead with a field of nominees that featured many female directors, buzzy TV shows and notable shortcomings in its honors for Black storytelling. Still, meaningful snubs and questions about the Globes’ relevance aside, the awards continued to matter to many in the industry.
Chloe Zhao and her film “Nomadland” and Sacha Baron Cohen and his film “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm” each won top movie honors, while “Soul” also took home multiple prizes at the 78th Golden Globe Awards. Chadwick Boseman, Jodie Foster, “Minari,” Andra Day and Daniel Kaluuya also received honors. In television, favorites “The Queen’s Gambit,” “The Crown” and “Schitt’s Creek” won the night’s top TV awards while roles in “Small Axe” and “Ted Lasso” were also honored.
The Globes ceremony was again hosted by Tina Fey (from the Rainbow Room in Rockefeller Center in New York) and Amy Poehler (from the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles). This year’s special honors were conferred upon film icon Jane Fonda and television pioneer Norman Lear. Read our full coverage of the Golden Globes here.
