Golden Globes 2021: The Crown and British stars are big winners – as Chadwick Boseman honoured posthumously
The Crown reigned with several awards at this year’s Golden Globes, as other British stars including Sacha Baron Cohen and John Boyega were also big winners.
On the night the ceremony went virtual due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there were historic moments as Chloe Zhao became only the second woman to win the best director prize, for Nomadland, while the late Chadwick Boseman was honoured posthumously for his final on-screen performance in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.
There had been controversy ahead of the awards, with accusations that votes can easily be influenced and criticism over the lack of diversity in the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the organisation behind the ceremony. This was addressed during the show, both in a jokey opening monologue by hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, but also seriously by HFPA members who went on stage and promised to put things right.
When it came to the awards, British stars dominated the ceremony. Josh O’Connor and newcomer Emma Corrin, who play Prince Charles and Diana in The Crown, were named best actor and actress in a TV drama, and the royal series won the gong for best drama overall. The show also scooped another win thanks to American star Gillian Anderson, who was named best supporting actress for her portrayal of Margaret Thatcher.
Other British winners included Daniel Kaluuya for Judas And The Black Messiah, John Boyega for Small Axe, Rosamund Pike for I Care A Lot, Anya Taylor-Joy (who has dual citizenship) for The Queen’s Gambit, and Sacha Baron Cohen, who was a double winner for Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, which was named comedy film of the year.
Kaluuya, who received the night’s first award, fell victim to technical issues on a night that went otherwise quite smoothly, with viewers unable to hear his initial speech. “You’re doing me dirty,” he joked when his sound returned.
In an emotional speech, a tearful Taylor Simone Ledward Boseman accepted her late husband’s award for best lead actor in a drama. Boseman, who died in August aged 43 following a four-year battle with cancer, is widely expected to follow the Golden Globe with an Oscar nomination and win.
Zhao was honoured for her work on Nomadland, which stars two-time Oscar winner Frances McDormand and also includes non-professional actors. Winning the award for best director, she became only the second woman ever to do so – some 37 years after Barbra Streisand picked up the prize for Yentl.
The ceremony was very different to those of previous years, with a pared-back red carpet for just a few presenters, while nominees appeared virtually from around the world.
Hosting for a fourth time, Fey and Poehler did so from separate locations, presenting from New York and Los Angeles due to the pandemic, and this year the audiences were made up of essential workers rather than A-listers.
They addressed the criticism over the HFPA’s lack of diversity.
Baron Cohen also addressed the issue, saying thank you “to the all-white Hollywood foreign press” in one of his acceptance speeches for the Borat sequel.
The actor also praised the crew of the film for putting themselves in danger while shooting undercover amid the pandemic, saying they were at risk of arrest and of getting the virus.
The night’s honorary prizes went to veteran actress and activist Jane Fonda, who received the Cecil B DeMille Award, and Norman Lear, who claimed the Carol Burnett Award.
