8 mins read

This year’s Golden Globes ceremony looked a little different due to the pandemic, but that didn’t stop Hollywood from celebrating the best of film and television from the past year. Catch up on all of the top highlights from the Golden Globes here.

Late actor Chadwick Boseman, who died from colon cancer in August 2020, won the Golden Globe award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama on Sunday, for his role in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. Boseman’s wife, Taylor Simone Ledward, accepted the award on his behalf.

“He would thank God. He would thank his parents. He would thank his ancestors for their guidance and their sacrifices,” Ledward said in an emotional speech, adding that her husband “would say something beautiful, something inspiring, something that would amplify that little voice inside of all of us that tells you you can,” if he could accept the award himself.

Actor Daniel Kaluuya won the night’s first award, taking home Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture for his role in Judas and the Black Messiah. However, his acceptance speech initially went unheard by the audience as his audio appeared to be muted. As Laura Dern did her best to move past the awkward moment, Kaluuya’s audio was fixed and he was able to make his speech.
