After being delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic, the 78th annual Golden Globe Awards are finally here, although they won’t look like they have in years past.


The ceremony, usually known for its inappropriate monologue jokes and drunken guests, is likely to be a more subdued affair, semi-virtual, with a limited number of guests at the Beverly Hilton and at least some acknowledgment of the serious times we’re all living in. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who are returning as cohosts for the fourth time, will surely do their best to lighten the mood. You can check out the full list of nominations here.
