Here’s our quick guide to the event, which will take place in Beverly Hills, California, and New York City.
Netflix? Also, always…
A year ago at this time, Netflix was the envy of all Hollywood, chilling countless jugs of champagne for the Globes. An incredible 34 nominations showed a real change in the jewelry business in Tinseltown, with a winning streak. Either way, the ceremony didn’t go according to script, and Netflix ended the night with two inconsistent hits. Will this year’s diversion really be an indicator of his newfound power? This time the odds are much better, with a whopping 42 acts in all categories of television and film. But who can be sure after he was a waste of time a year ago?
Coleman/Cohen: twice ?
One of Netflix’s unusual successes a year ago was Olivia Colman, who made a surprising impact on Globes voters by playing Britain’s Queen Elizabeth in The Crown. It wasn’t a total surprise – Coleman has never lost a Golden Globe before, having crossed over for The Favourite (2019) and The Night Manager (2017) in the past. It could be even better this year with a double nomination for a new season of The Crown and a nomination in the Best Drama category. If she succeeds, she could be more than just a champion on the night. The idiosyncratic Brit Sacha Baron Cohen is a serious contender for the film’s two very different roles: Borat is the sequel to the Chicago 7 movie and trial.
Did Hopkins get lucky for the eighth time?
Colman’s counterpart in The Father, the incredible Anthony Hopkins, is a real contender for awards every time he appears on screen. Shockingly, however, he still lost out on a serious Golden Globe, despite the fact that he had been selected based on seven previous events dating back to 1979, and he still received a lifetime allowance for his missions. Once he won an Oscar in 1992 for his stunning performance in The Silence of the Lambs, Globe voters fell for Nick Nolte in Prince of Tides, so to speak. If the Hollywood Foreign Press Association decides to change that this year, it will crown Hopkins, 83, as the most decorated entertainer of all time. Hopkins is embarrassed by the Black Panther himself: the late Chadwick Bozeman.
Minari: the new parasite?
Few categories at the Globes have generated as much discussion lately as Best Film on Unknown Dialects. American settler stories like Farewell (2019) are routinely excluded from the main Best Film category because half or most of the script is not written in English. Experts have noted that this standard does not seem to apply to previous heavyweights, such as Quentin Tarantino’s multilingual Inglourious Busters. Minari has shaken many hands this year, and Goodbye’s manager, Lulu Wang, tweeted that she hadn’t seen a more American film than the acclaimed Korean family series Outsiders. Apparently, acting in a segment where the dialects are unfamiliar didn’t hurt the South Korean film Parasite, as it won the biggest award of all, the Oscar for Best Picture. Can Minari repeat the feat?
balls go b-b-b-for.
With pandemonium rising and restrictions still tight in Los Angeles, this year’s Globes ceremony could certainly have been a gamble – especially after the group behind the Emmys staged a flawless honors show in an empty theater in September. In any case, organizers were surprised when they announced that the returning Tina Fey and Amy Poehler would be docking from New York and Los Angeles. This decision should allow all celebrities to receive their awards in person – including Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones from the Big Apple – regardless of whether the nominees have to stay home or not. As the Oscars are currently broadcast from different regions, the Academy will be keeping a close eye on whether Fey and Poehler manage to achieve their usual affinities from opposite ends of the country.
