There were several reasons to watch the Golden Globes this year. To know the winners, of course, but also to see how the organizers – and the host – were going to manage the controversy.

Because it was a return to the air for the event. Last year, NBC unplugged the ceremony due to a journalistic investigation by the Los Angeles Times which revealed the absence of black people on the 87-member jury. Corruption charges had also been leveled against the organization behind the party, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA).

The high mass of the small and the big screen went off without a hitch. The large number of visible minority winners certainly helped dispel any semblance of unease.

Despite the crisis, the stars had responded to the call in large numbers. In the room, you could see a lot of big names, including Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Steven Spielberg, Quentin Tarantino, Claire Danes and Rihanna. And the alcohol was flowing like before.

However, three winners skipped the event: Cate Blanchett (Best Actress in a Drama for Tar), Amanda Seyfried (Best Actress in a Limited Series for The Dropout) and Zendaya (Best Actress in a Drama Series for Euphoria). We explained that they were filming, but we don’t know if there was more…

For Kevin Costner, also absent, but crowned best actor in a drama series for Yellowstonepresenter Regina Hall clarified that he was “restrained at home due to inclement weather in California”.

At the end of the gala, the president of the Golden Globes spoke of a “year of change”. She also promised to “continue the work” to ensure greater diversity in the organization.

The team of The Banshees of Inisherin

The Fabelmans and The Banshees of Inisherin won the Golden Globes for Best Drama and Best Comedy, respectively. The Fabelmans also allowed Steven Spielberg to win the trophy for best director. The Banshees of Inisherin distinguished himself in two other categories: best screenplay and best actor in a comedy for Colin Farrell.

Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama went to Austin Butler for his portrayal of the King of Rock and Roll in Elvis. Ke Huy Quan (Everything Everywhere All at Once) and Angela Bassett (Black Panther: Wakanda Forever) won the categories reserved for supporting roles, all genres combined.

The prize for best film in a language other than English was awarded to the feature film Argentina, 1985.

The HFPA also presented a tribute award to Eddie Murphy, who concluded his speech by revealing to young hopefuls the recipe for success in Hollywood: “Pay your taxes, mind your own business… and keep the name of Will’s wife. Smith out of your fucking mouth! »

ABC Network’s ‘Documenter’ Sitcom Abbott Elementary, which portrays a group of teachers from Philadelphia, dominated the comedy section by winning three categories: best comedy, best actress (Quinta Brunson) and best supporting actor (Tyler James Williams). Critics’ favorite series The Bearallowed Jeremy Allen White to collect the trophy for best actor.

As for drama series, the pre-episode of Game Of Thrones, House of the Dragonwon top honors, while The White Lotus distinguished herself among the limited series, allowing Jennifer Coolidge to obtain an interpretation prize.

Writer, director and producer Ryan Murphy, to whom we owe American Horror Story, Laid and Glee, received a Globe tribute. “My mission was to take the unseen, the unloved and turn them into heroes that I wanted to see, but had never had the opportunity to see until now,” said the winner. .

In a hyper-casual style (which was not always telegenic, especially when he paced the stage from left to right without stopping while looking at the ground during his opening monologue), Jerrod Carmichael did not circle around the curtain raiser pot. “I’ll tell you why I’m here: I’m here because I’m black,” said the host after asking the audience to sit down.

The comedian was not content to evoke, with covert words, the controversy surrounding the Golden Globes. He dissected her for a good eight minutes. Unsurprisingly, the HFPA took it for its cold. “I won’t go so far as to say they were a racist organization, but they had no black members until George Floyd died. Do what you want with this information,” the emcee said. Boom.

Between two outfit changes, Carmichael steered the evening with ease. His presentations were scripted, but delivered so naturally you’d have sworn he was improvising. Among his best is when he apologized on behalf of all gay men for “everything they did to him on that boat” in The White Lotus.

If NBC keeps the Golden Globes on the air, let’s hope it comes back next year.

Thanks





The context surrounding the holding of the gala undoubtedly had something to do with it, but several inspired speeches were delivered during the event. Speeches that celebrated difference, diversity and openness. The most memorable came from the very first winner, Ke Huy Quan. Crowned Best Supporting Actor for Everything Everywhere All at Oncethe lucky winner moved the audience (and certainly many viewers) by thanking not only Steven Spielberg, the man who had believed in him in the early 1980s by entrusting him with the role of Harrison Ford’s little sidekick in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, but also Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, the two directors of the film for which he held a trophy in his hands. “More than 30 years later, two men thought of me. They remembered this child and gave me the chance to try again,” he said, tears in his eyes.

Named Best Actress in a Comedy for Everything Everywhere All at Once, Michelle Yeoh recounted the first time she arrived in Hollywood, “It was a dream come true until I arrived,” said the Malaysian-born actress before exposing her difficult journey , as a visible minority woman. “This prize is for all those who came before me and who have my features! »
