2021 Golden Globe Awards Recap

The 78th Golden Globes took place this past Sunday with a mix of virtual and in-person programming. The Crown was the ceremony's biggest winner, earning four awards including Best Television Series - Drama, Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series (Emma Corrin), Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series (John O'Connor), and Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Supporting Role (Gillian Anderson). 

Chadwick Boseman won a posthumous award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama for his performance in Ma Rainey's Black Bottom. Taylor Simone Ledward accepted the award for her late husband and gave an emotional speech in his honor, noting, "He would say something beautiful, something inspiring, something that would amplify that little voice in all of us that tells you you can, that tells you to keep going, that calls you back to what you are meant to be doing at this moment in history. ... I don't have his words, but we have to take all the moment to celebrate those we love. ... Hon, you keep 'em coming."

Elsewhere, The Queen's Gambit won multiple Golden Globes, with series lead Anya Taylor-Joy taking home Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series. Daniel Kaluuya won Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his performance in Judas and the Black Messiah. Chloe Zhao became the first woman to win the best director award since 1984 for her work with Nomadland. And Schitt's Creek took home honors for Best Television Series - Comedy with the show's Catherine O'Hara winning Best Actress in a Television Series - Comedy (take our personality quiz to find your Schitt's Creek soulmate!).
