“Mank” in David Fincher’s black-and-white story “Old Hollywood” was nominated for six trophies at the Golden Globes on Sunday, the most in the movie. It will be available on Netflix from December 4th.
did you see it?
It’s ok. There are not many people in Hollywood.
What about the destruction of “father” and dementia? It is a contender for best drama and three other awards. Or is it “Mauritanian” shot in Guantanamo, competing for two Golden Globes in the performance category? Or is it “Judas and the Black Messiah”
See any of them?
Well, I don’t know how to say it. Pretend as if you have at least heard of a couple.
In a year, almost all nominated films have bypassed theaters due to the pandemic, and the “Universal Award” (which shows the largest tent award considering the dual attention of film and television) may feel small. The nominee has been working hard to attract attention. For many people, including some in Hollywood, in most cases, when the coronavirus is still killing about 2,000 Americans, it is difficult to care about few golden things.
“The stakes have never been lowered,” Tina Fey said in a boring global ad when she returned to co-hosting the awards ceremony with Amy Poehler.
Who says no one in Hollywood is honest? Before the ceremony begins at 8 p.m. Eastern time on Sunday, there are other things to consider:
There is no red carpet, but the award season is endless.
The traditional engine of the Golden Globes, the huge red carpet, will no longer exist this time. The winners will all stay at home. (Accepting trophies from mansions and luxury hotel rooms, the color tone is not bad. It takes hours to pretend to be a photographer, but wearing diamonds and haute couture dresses, obviously not.) Fey will receive the globe in the Rainbow Room in New York, and Poehler will Stationed at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills, California. A small number of frontline personnel and important workers have been invited to participate in person, but the usual exaggerated dinner has been destroyed.
Of course it did not help. The arrival of the 78th Golden Globe Awards made people re-realize that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which is prone to awarding scandals, needs drastic reforms. For a long time, these more than 80 voting members have been portrayed as losing contact and being understated and corrupted by hosts including themselves. In last year’s live broadcast, Ricky Gervais referred to them as “vegetables.” However, recent news reports indicate cruel infighting and suspicious fixing of compensation.
The Los Angeles Times found that the organization had no black members.
But the reward mechanism must persist: too much capital stake is at risk. NBC pays US$60 million annually for broadcasting rights. Studios and streaming services companies will spend millions of dollars to promote Globe’s victory, partly because voting for the more prestigious Oscars will begin on Friday. (The Oscar nominees will be announced on March 15. The Oscars ceremony, postponed due to the pandemic, will be held on April 25.)
If nothing else, Nielsen’s TV ratings for this most unusual terrestrial globe will help to set expectations for an Oscar that modifies this epidemic. Last year, the “Golden Globe Awards” attracted approximately 18.3 million viewers. At that time, “1917” and “Hollywood… The Time” won the best film awards, and Billy Porter wore his Bjork Swan costume. Caused online traffic jams. In contrast, in 2008, due to screenwriters’ strike, the Golden Globes became a monotonous press conference, which was watched by only 5.8 million people.
In other words, jazz is very important.
