Golden Globes 2021

The Golden Globes is a lavish event held every year and is known to be in second of importance to the Academy Awards (film) and Emmy Awards (television). At this ceremony, Golden Globe Awards are given to the winners who are recognized to have reached an outstanding achievement in motion or television during the previous year. Only the best are chosen by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), who are a group of people that decide the award-giving and acknowledgment of films or actors and actresses. In the present, the Coronavirus pandemic is still ongoing and has held off a lot of important events that were scheduled to occur in 2020 and 2021. However, this major event could not be postponed, and so the 78th Annual Golden Globes 2021 was held on February 28, with, of course, the safety precautions of COVID-19.

Moving on, the Golden Globes has a long history with many detailed, intricate parts to it that make it an extravagant occasion. This event was originally attempted in 1944 by the Hollywood Foreign Correspondents Association, but due to certain situations, the actual awarding system began in 1956, where only a few categories were honored (e.g. motion picture). Although this seemed like a good system, a lot of people were against it, and the Golden Globes faced a lot of problems of credibility along the way as well. This led to the disappearance of the Golden Globes in the late 1900s, but the ceremony was introduced back again in the 21st century because of the increase in the importance of entertainment companies and content. From here on out, the Golden Globes was held every year, and more categories were added, as well as the extravagance of the ceremony. Now, the awards are given out in numerous sections of film awards, television awards, other competitive awards, and lastly, the grandest, Cecil B. DeMille award. Even within these groups, there are branches of other categories that get nominated for the Golden Globe Award.

Adding on to this, this year’s Golden Globes 2021 had multiple nominees of films, actors, and actresses. For example, in the drama section, Nomadland won Best Motion Picture, actress Andra Day (The United States vs Billie Holidays) won Best Actress in a Motion Picture, and actor Chadwick Boseman (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom) won Best Actor in a Motion Picture. In the comedy/musical section, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm won Best Motion Picture, actress Rosamund Pike (I Care A Lot) won Best Actress in a Motion Picture, and actor Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm) won Best Actor in a Motion Picture. These are just a few awards handed out to the film creations and actors/actresses, and more can be seen on the Golden Globe Awards website. Also, the biggest award, the Cecil B. DeMille Award, was handed out to actress Jane Fonda for her “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment”. Of course, this is the top title to receive in the Golden Globes, but every award is special and a recognition of something spectacular achieved by people in the entertainment industry.

Besides the awards, which is the most crucial part of the Golden Globes, the lavish part about this ceremony includes something else as well. The clothing and accessories worn by the actors and actresses at the event are a critical part of making the Golden Globes a lavish event. In the past, there have been a variety of different extravagant dresses, suits, and more that could be observed worn by people at the ceremony, and although circumstances were different this year, the clothing did not disappoint. Although it’s hard to describe these attires in words with all the details to it, there were some actors and actresses that were in the top 21 best dressed picked by Vogue. These stars include Elle Fanning, Andra Day, Amanda Seyfried, plus many more. To give a rough idea of how they dressed, is Anya Taylor Joy in her all-green Dior Haute Couture gown, Viola Davis with her colorfully patterned Lavie by CK, and actress Regina King wearing her outstanding Louis Vuitton dress. As these famous stars went through the entrance, the clothing left many spectators speechless. The products created by wonderful companies like Gucci, Chanel, and Valentino were absolutely out-of-the-world, leaving people in awe for this year’s Golden Globes.

In summary, the Golden Globes 2021 is a very big celebration of films, actors, and actresses. Awards are handed out to the best creations and acting from the previous year, 2020, which was filled with a lot of unforgettable events. Although the COVID-19 pandemic is still ongoing, it won’t stop the entertainment companies to continue producing movies, television series, and more to keep the world happy and excited during these hard times. Everyone applauds these wonderful people who won the Golden Globe Award or not, for their dedication and hard work to produce something so fabulous.
