Golden Globe Awards 2021: exhibiting pride, honour and gratitude

Hollywood’s award season is just getting started with the Golden Globes set to take place on February 28.

The award show that recognises the best in movies and television announced the list of nominees in the various categories. Pandemic-related theatre closures and blockbuster delays have seemingly given a big boost to smaller, stay-at-home movies and shows that ruled streaming services this year.

While in the movies’ nomination list, ‘Mank’ and ‘The Trial of the Chicago 7’ lead the way with 6 and 5 nods in different categories, ‘The Crown’, ‘Schitt’s Creek’ and ‘Ozark’ led the pack of television nominees.

Following the big announcement, the nominees took to social media to share their excitement and gratitude for the honour and recognition.
