Malibu Seen: Time To Get Golden

Co-host Amy Poehler walks the lonely red carpet ahead of the semi-virtual awards show on Sunday.

Funny thing about the award season: The Oscars are clean and neat with every film category in its place. But the second-biggest prize is more of a mix-up, with serious drama, comedy, music and lifetime legend awards crowding the room at the Golden Globe Awards.

Alongside the critically acclaimed crime drama “The Trial of the Chicago 7” came the laugh-out-loud comedy “Borat Subsequent Movie Film.” And though “The Queen” kept on her royal roll with a batch of awards, the streaming got in the way of the real entertainment.

Due to our continued distancing, this year was very, very different.

What’s weird is that we were all used to red carpet royalty: the flash, the glam, the sequins, the satin, the velvet, the glitz and more.

Host Tina Fey came out in a stunning black sheath while Amy Poehler flattered with a dazzling shiny number.

The hitch? Of course, our year-long pandemic. As for the winners, for the drama, the envelope went to “Nomadland.” Best musical or comedy went to “Borat.” Best screenplay went to Aaron Sorkin. And best director – motion picture was handed to Chloe Zhao for her drama, “Nomadland.” 

I’ve got to say—with the exception of a little overdue diversity, this may go down as the dullest globes in history.
