The annual Golden Globes looked very different this year. Like a lot of people in the pandemic, the hosts — Tina Fey and Amy Poehler — worked remotely. Covid also meant the typical banquet was out, with recipients receiving their awards at home. And in the days before the 2021 Globes, a series of articles alleged major issues behind the scenes of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, including “self-dealing” and “ethical lapses, while the former President of the group admitted in a separate piece that the organization hadn’t had a single Black member in the last 20 years.

Despite all the controversy, the show — widely seen, rightly or wrongly, as the key preliminary awards before the Oscars — went on. Here are all of 2021’s nominees with the winners highlighted in bold.
