The “Golden Globes” went down mostly without a hitch . . . although they started with a pretty embarrassing one.
After a monologue by TINA FEY, who was in New York . . . and AMY POEHLER, who was in L.A., DANIEL KALUUYA won a supporting actor trophy for “Judas and the Black Messiah”.
When they first went to his feed, he had no sound. Someone who was probably a producer could be heard saying, “I wish I could hear.” They cut away from Daniel back to presenter LAURA DERN . . .
But then quickly went BACK to Daniel after they fixed his connection. That was pretty much the only glitch of the night.
If anything else from the show is gonna go viral, it might be JASON SUDEIKIS and his HOODIE.
Showing the world what can happen when OLIVIA WILDE leaves you for a younger man, Jason looked a little ragged while accepting his award for the TV show “Ted Lasso”.
He also rambled, which resulted in fellow nominee DON CHEADLE motioning for him to wrap it up. While most of the nominees dressed up, being remote allowed the option of going casual. And Jason wasn’t the only one who took advantage.
JOHN BOYEGA admitted he was wearing “tracking bottoms” . . . BILL MURRAY was kicking back with a Hawaiian shirt and a martini . . . and JODIE FOSTER and her wife looked like they were having a pajama party with their dog.
As for comedy, the best bit of the night had to be KENAN THOMPSON and MAYA RUDOLPH doing a parody of that one “Golden Globes” speech that goes off the rails every year.
The emotional high point of the night was CHADWICK BOSEMAN’s wife accepting for him, after he won posthumously for “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom”.
