2021 Golden Globes

By: VANESSA MORALES

The golden globes took a turn this year; and thanks to the switch to the electrical environment a lot of things seemed to be different this year. A Lot of people went into this thinking how this would turn out. Or some thought it wouldn’t have the same effect and essence as the normal showing of these events. And let’s be honest it was awesome seeing some of our favorite celebrities on a zoom call and some  even having tech issues!! But these Golden globes did spark some controversial conversations and did have some interesting things occur. So what exactly did go down at this week’s golden globes? 

Here is a run down on everything that happened: 

The big snub ordeal began when the hostesses Tina Fey & Amy Poehler poked at the association who basically decides who even gets a chance of winning an award. They even called them out for having no person of color in another team and association. As the hostess stated “ the association is made up of around 90 -no balck – journalists’ ‘ which sparked the controversy on who actually deserved to get nominated and eventually winning a globe. Amy Poehler even went on saying “look a lot of flashy garbage got nominated but that happens it’s like their thing” stating that projects that deserved to be nominated were overlooked. Fueling into the idea that this needs to change. And if you take a closer look at it, it did shed light on films and projects that were indeed overlooked.  Tina Fey ( 2021 Golden Globe host) said it straight and stated  “HFPA ( association on who gets  nominated and wins a globe) maybe you guys didn’t get the memo because your workplace is the back booth of a French McDonald’s, but you got to change that. Then eventually the gloves get to the segment honoring the Cecil B. DeMille Award to the one and only Jane Fonda. What Jane Fonda did on that stage was to elucidate the nightmare that the world has faced. The unfairness and cruelty it brought to people of color. She clarified that it’s here and there is only one way to stop it and that’s together. She then went onto stating balck projects that should’ve been recognized at this year’s globees; and not only did she say these tv and films that moved her but she explained why. It showed her the battle and light that these people go through and it was inspiring that she went up there and used her voice. Uncovering even more light on the matter she went on to say “ But there has been a battle in our indfuery regarding which voices we want to hear and which we tune out”.  

Along with the other events that occurred this fine evening at the golden globes there was a lot to take in when we saw our favourite celebrities in the same format we interact in now! With having a regular background or an interesting vibe of “ i just woke up”.  And we got to see this from jason sudekis being the first ever person to receive a golden globe in …. A hoodie. Welp, that was definitely a mood from all of us at home. It was a relief to see it on screen. Not only did we get to see that revolutionary moment but we got to be a part of beautiful speeches and my personal favorite Daniel Kaluuya;s speech… THAT WAS MUTED THE WHOLE TIME.  I mean we all been there so let’s cut the guy some slack; he did just win a globe for an outstanding performance. It was definitely a night of memes and laughs as one nominee even  having a cut out of Bernie sanders in her background.
