Golden Globes 2021

Golden+Globes+2021

Katia Castaneda, Reporter

After being delayed for nearly two months the Golden Globes finally took place on February 28th 2021. While the awards show was held virtually they still tried to maintain the fun and chaotic atmosphere. However there still were many awkward moments given the fact that the awards show was basically one big zoom meeting. There were many technical issues from bad connections to being on mute while giving speeches and everyone talking over each other.

Co-host Amy Poehler and Tina Fey did not disappoint however even though they shared the stage through a split screen. They managed to throw in a couple jokes into their opening monologue and joke around by pretending to pet each other’s hair. They also called out the HFPA for their lack of diversity and pointed out that they should work harder to be more inclusive. Which is an issue that many people have had with the awards show. However many viewers pointed out that the experience was not the same no matter how much effort was put in.
