Winner, winner, chicken dinner! The 78th Annual Golden Globe Awards took place on Sunday night. Hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, the event brought with it a slew of predictable wins and surprise snags. More of the former than the latter. That being said, there were definitely well-deserved wins amid the predictability. This time last year we weren’t in the throes of a global pandemic, so the virtual aspect affected the flow of the proceedings.

The Crown swept quite a few of the Golden Globe acting categories, as was to be expected. Schitt’s Creek continued its award-winning streak. Personally, I was tickled to see Daniel Kaluuya win for Judas and the Black Messiah and Chadwick Boseman snag an accolade for Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. Additionally, Chloé Zhao deservedly winning for Nomadland is a historic marker for female directors of color. Andra Day scoring a win for The United States vs. Billie Holiday was also a joy to witness.

Not to mention, Minari and Nomadland took home the gold. Here’s hoping this is a step toward truly diversifying the awards circuit. The biggest surprise of the night: Promising Young Woman was left out in the cold. 

Below, you can check out the full list of Golden Globe winners.
