The Globes honor excellence in film and television. They are presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, Amy Poehler hosted the NBC event from California, while Tina Fey served as emcee for the New York portion of the broadcast.

Audiences for the two ceremonies were made up of masked and socially distanced first responders and essential workers.

Winners appeared virtually from their homes and other locations.

“We are so grateful for the work that you do and that you are here so the celebrities can stay safely at home,” Fey told the crowd.

“We know that you’ve seen a lot of crazy stuff at your job this year,” Poehler added. “But you haven’t seen the kind of stuff that we’ve seen at previous Golden Globes. This front table right here usually houses the biggest stars in the world.”

The women then joked about seeing Meryl Streep so drunk she couldn’t remember what movie she was in and Brad Pitt trying to interrupt and flirt with them.
