The Golden Globes tend to be the strangest night of award season — blame it on the alcohol! — and this year was no exception. The ceremony adopted the same structure as its covid-era predecessors, with hosts and presenters appearing in person while award recipients and nominees video-chatted in from their homes, offices and hotel rooms. Technical difficulties were to be expected, and the Globes didn’t make us wait long. Daniel Kaluuya, who won the very first award of the night, almost didn’t get to give his speech after producers seemingly forgot to unmute his audio.

But for a speech that went smoothly — and one the Hollywood Foreign Press Association might want to revisit — look no further than Jane Fonda, who was awarded the honorary Cecil B. DeMille award for her accomplishments as an actress and activist. While the HFPA’s own response to the controversy over its lack of any Black members was lackluster, Fonda directly implored industry gatekeepers to diversify their hiring pools, greenlight recipients and award winners “so that everyone rises and everyone’s story has a chance to be seen and heard.”

As for the winners, Netflix swept on the television side of things; Chloé Zhao won best director and drama film for “Nomadland”; and Sacha Baron Cohen landed best actor and comedy film for “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.”
