Everything you need to know about the 2021 Golden Globe Awards


The Golden Globe Awards will air this Sunday as one of the last major awards to reckon with the coronavirus pandemic.

The show will herald the major moments in film and television over the past year, and serve as an important barometer for the forthcoming 2021 Oscars, set to air in April.

The show, which was postponed to late February from its original and typical January air date, will respond to the challenges of COVID-19 with a special “bicoastal” broadcast.
