Nomadland, The Crown, Borat 2 Lead Winners At 2021 Golden Globes

This year's Golden Globes was a virtual ceremony held bicoastally in New York and Los Angeles.

The Crown was the big winner at this year's Golden Globe Awards, taking home four prizes.

Netflix's regal drama scooped one of the evening's biggest honours, Best Television Series, Drama, while cast members Josh O'Connor, Emma Corrin, and Gillian Anderson each took acting accolades at Sunday's (Feb 28) virtual ceremony, which was staged in both New York and Los Angeles, with the winners accepting remotely from home.

Together apart: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted the 78th Golden Globe Awards from Rockefeller's Centre's Rainbow Room in New York City and The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, respectively.

Josh and Emma — who played Prince Charles and Princess Diana — were honoured with Best Performance by an Actor and Actress in a Television Series, Drama respectively, while Gillian Anderson's portrayal of Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher saw her take the Best Supporting Actress, Television honour.

Accepting the Best Television Series, Drama honour, showrunner Peter Morgan lamented the fact the ceremony wasn't being held in person.

He said: "I'm just sorry I'm sitting here in my tragic little office, nut surrounded by the people who make this show such a pleasure to make.

"Olivia, Tobias, Helena, Gillian, Emma, Josh, Erin, the directors, my wonderful producers, the editor, the composer...

"Quite frankly I miss not being with my fellow nominees in that wonderful room, that crazy room. I'm glad I'm not having to face the room making the speech, it's always the most fun awards show."

Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy went to Schitt's Creek, with its star Catherine O'Hara taking Best Actress in a TV Series, Musical or Comedy, though her co-star Eugene Levy missed out on the Best Actor in a TV Series, Musical or Comedy award, which went to Jason Sudeikis for Ted Lasso.

The Queen's Gambit also had two wins, for Best Limited Series, Anthology Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television and Best Actress in a Limited Series, Anthology Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television for its star Anya Taylor-Joy.

In the movie categories, Chloe Zhao became only the second female filmmaker to take the Best Director prize, while her work Nomadland also took the coveted Best Motion Picture, Drama honour.

Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy went to Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, for which its star, Sacha Baron Cohen — who also won Best Actor paid tribute to the film’s crew, who had run "the risk of getting arrested, the risk of getting COVID" in making the movie.

He added: “They did that because we all believed so deeply in releasing this movie before the election to show the danger of lies, hates, conspiracies and the power of truth, empathy and democracy.”

Elsewhere at the ceremony, the late Chadwick Boseman was posthumously honoured with the Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama award for his work on Ma Rainey's Black Bottom and Andra Day was a surprise winner of Best Actress for The United States vs. Billie Holiday.

Chadwick's widow, Simone Ledward Boseman, gave an emotional acceptance speech in which she reflected on the "beautiful" words her husband would have offered if he had been alive to accept the award himself.

She said: "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.

“He would say something beautiful, something inspiring, something that would amplify that little voice inside of all of us that tells you, ‘You can,’ that tells you to keep going, that calls you back to what you are meant to be doing at this moment in history."

“I don’t have his words but we have to take all the moment to celebrate all we love, so thank you, HFPA, for this opportunity to do exactly that."
