Co-hosted by Tina Fey from New York City and Amy Poehler from Los Angeles, who are reuniting to helm the ceremony for the first time since 2015, this year’s iteration will mark the first time the Golden Globes will be broadcast from multiple locations. While the night’s winners are set to accept their awards virtually, with the HFPA emphasizing it wants nominees to limit gatherings, presenters will appear at the location of their choosing.
Presenters include Awkwafina, Cynthia Erivo, Joaquin Phoenix, “Barb and Star Go to Vista del Mar” duo Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo, Kevin Bacon, Sterling K. Brown, Michael Douglas, Kyra Sedgwick, Susan Kelechi Watson, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Renee Zellweger. Satchel and Jackson Lee, children of filmmaker Spike Lee and producer-philanthropist Tonya Lewis Lee, will serve as the 2021 Golden Globe Ambassadors.
This year’s nominations are led by streaming giant Netflix, which garnered 42 noms and whose films “Mank” and “The Trial of the Chicago 7,” and series “The Queen’s Gambit” and “The Crown” dominated the field.
