Emily Backlund, Arts & Entertainment

On Sunday February 28th, the Golden Globes finally came after two months of delay due to the pandemic. The majority of the Golden Globes was done virtually, but some hosts and guests did come in person. The hosts this year were Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. The in-person audience was full of first responders and healthcare workers, while actors and nominees were virtually there. The show also did a tribute for Norman Lear and Jane Fonda who won the Carol Burnett Award and the Cecil B. DeMille award, respectively. For the majority of the show everything went smoothly, but there were some technical difficulties at times.  

The Netflix series The Crown won four out of the six awards they were nominated for including Drama TV Series, Actor in a Drama TV Series, Actress in a Drama TV Series, and Supporting Actress in a Series. The Crown’s Olivia Colman was also nominated for Best Actress in a Drama TV Series and Helena Bonham Carter was nominated for Actress in a Drama TV Series.
