Everything is weird all the time these days, and the Golden Globes are always a weird awards show (TV and movies and a secret society of international movie bloggers?!), so the 2021 Golden Globes ceremony was destined to be an especially weird night of dancing around various controversies and social issues, handing out trophies, and seeing what carefully selected decorative vases and books are in view of celebrities’ webcams.

For those who avoided it: The Golden Globe nominations were riddled with surprising snubs (namely I May Destroy You) and included at least one inexplicable favorite (Netflix’s hate-watch special Emily In Paris), prompting new questions about how the Golden Globe voters in the Hollywood Foreign Press Association choose their nominees and winners. That’s on top of the widespread criticism of the fact that the HFPA has zero Black members, meaning (for better or worse), a lot more attention was being paid to this thing then there might have been otherwise.

In the end, though, the controversies didn’t seem to factor into the actual awards—sorry, Emily In Paris fans. Nomadland cleaned up, as it has at pretty much every award show this season (director Chloé Zhao should clear some shelf space next to her new Golden Globes, at least enough room for a bald man made of gold), Chadwick Boseman won for Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom (his wife gave an incredible speech in his place), and Sacha Baron Cohen landed a couple of awards for Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.

The full list of winners and nominees is below, with winners in bold.
