2021 Golden Globes: “Nomadland” and “The Crown” Top the List of Winners

Frances McDormand in "Nomadland"

Golden Globes are the latest awards ceremony to go virtual this year, and they really gave us a night to remember. The event was full of surprises and major upsets, but Chloé Zhao’s Nomadland and Netflix’s The Crown were the expected top winners of the night.

Zhao made history as only the second female director to win the best director award at the Globes, in addition to picking up the best drama motion picture award for Nomadland. It was also a big night for Sacha Baron Cohen, whose recent project Borat Subsequent Moviefilm was awarded two trophies in the comedy field.

The acting categories were full of major upsets, but one win that everyone saw coming was Chadwick Boseman’s triumph with his final movie Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. The list of major surprises included Andra Day’s win for The United States vs. Billie Holiday, Daniel Kaluuya’s victory with Judas and the Black Messiah, and Jodie Foster’s upset with The Mauritanian.

The winners in the television categories were much easier to predict. The Crown led the way with four wins, as its stars Josh O’Connor, Emma Corrin, and Gillian Anderson picked up trophies in their respective categories. Schitt’s Creek and The Queen’s Gambit closely followed, with two awards each.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were in charge of co-hosting this year’s Golden Globe Awards ceremony, which took place on February 28th.
