Mumbai, March 1: Watching the Golden Globe Awards 2021 was almost like watching the Emmy Awards last year.
We are talking about Schitt’s Creek’s winning streak at all the major award ceremonies.
The Canadian sitcom took home the Golden Globe Awards 2021 for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy.
And yes, Canadian-American actor Catherine O’Hara also won the Golden Globes Award 2021 for ‘Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy’ for Schitt’s Creek.
Though the 78th edition of the award show took place virtually, the entertainment wasn’t any less.
It was hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler from the Rainbow Room in New York and Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, respectively.
Chadwick Boseman won the posthumous best actor in a motion picture, drama award for Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.
Hollywood veteran and activist Jane Fonda received Cecil B DeMille award and actress Emma Corrin thanked Princess Diana in her speech after winning the Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series (Drama) for The Crown.
The Crown at the Golden Globes Awards 2021
This hilarious show —Schitt’s Creek — had won an Emmy Award last year for ‘Outstanding Comedy Series’.
At the Emmys, the show also won for Outstanding Lead Actor and Actress and the Outstanding Supporting Actor, and Actress.
In fact, it bagged all the major awards.
But that wasn’t the case at the Golden Globe Awards 2021. But then, it was a big night for The Crown too.
The Netflix series won four major awards with newbie Emma Corrin winning the ‘Best Actress in a TV Series (Drama)’ and Josh O’ Connor named best TV drama actor. Corrin, who played young Princess Diana in the series, beat veterans Olivia Colman and Laura Linney to bag the honour.
The Crown also won the Best Television Series (Drama) award and the terrific Gillian Anderson bagged the Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Supporting Role for her role as Margaret Thatcher in The Crown.
Honouring Chadwick at Golden Globe Awards 2021
Chadwick Boseman was posthumously honoured with a Golden Globe for his performance in the musical period drama Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. His wife, Simone Ledward Boseman, accepted the award on his behalf.
He died on August 28, 2020 after his long battle to cancer. “He would thank god, he would thank his parents. He would thank his ancestors for their guidance and their sacrifices. He would thank his incredible team, on and off set. He would say something beautiful, something inspiring,” the wife of the Black Panther star said.
Was Bill Murray the star of Golden Globe Awards 2021?
Bill Murray stole the limelight with his casual yet not-so-casual outfit. Nominated for Best Supporting Actor (Film) for On The Rocks, the 70-year-old actor’s OOTD (outfit of the day) grabbed the Internet’s attention and kept it.
Had it not been a virtual show, Murray would have been spotted in a suit most probably.
But owing to the ambience of the ceremony, Murray was seen in a breezy Hawaiian shirt with a martini glass.
He lost to Daniel Kaluuya, star of Judas And The Black Messiah, but had there been a ‘Best Vibe’ award, nobody would have been able to compete with Murray.
Netizens labelled Murray’s outfit as the epitome of coolness. A Twitter user aptly summed up the mood with these words: “Bill Murray is all of us after working from home for the past year.”
