Although they awarded film and TV awards at the same time, as the leader of the “Oscars”, people paid the most attention to them. However, the traditional awards season has been disrupted by the coronavirus, from showing movies through streaming services to postponing the schedule of these events to 2021.
After a more critical nomination decision, “Minari” (a work by a Korean family in Arkansas, USA) was named the best foreign language film because this is the classification method chosen by the HFPA.
In TV, Netflix’s “The Crown” was selected as the best feature film by “Universal” magazine for the second time (the last shortlisted in 2017), including British talents such as Josh O̵
More importantly, after the broadcast, the Los Angeles Times reported on the suspicious ethical behavior of members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. The Hollywood Foreign Correspondents Association is an organization that awards awards. It has long been the subject of such controversies, and its complete lack of black membership has aroused criticism from many major Hollywood figures.
The first two awards of the night won the Black Star Award: Daniel Kaluuya (Daniel Kaluuya), played the historical drama “Judas and the Black Messiah”; and John Boyega (John Boyega), co-authored the Amazon anthology ” Little Axe. The Animated Feature Film Award was also awarded to an African-American movie “Soul”, which premiered on the streaming service Disney+. The film also won the award for best original soundtrack.

Few winners or presenters mentioned the HFPA issue, although “This is Us” star Sterling K. Brown said bitterly when he began to introduce him: “It’s great to be black at the Golden Globes.”
The empty banquet hall was made up of masked first responders, while the nominees watched at home. However, the quality of the cross-sectional works represented by all nominees was unpleasant, and Kaluuya’s contribution encountered technical difficulties before it was accepted.
The organizers of the awards stated in advance that they would solve the latter problem on the broadcast, but the three members stated that from the broadest point of view, they performed better. Turkish journalist Ali Sar concluded: “We look forward to a more inclusive future.”
NBC pays millions of dollars for the television broadcasting rights of the awards ceremony every year, but he has not commented on the latest concerns about HFPA and its surroundings.
There is no doubt that politics has entered the ceremony. Mark Ruffalo (Mark Ruffalo) made a passionate plea for the environment and greater harmony after the “terrible dark storm we have been experiencing”, and writer and director Aaron Sorkin (Aaron Sorkin) Pointed out the importance of defending democracy in light of the riots in the Capitol on January 6.
