They’re back… the Golden Globes will return to NBC on Tuesday, Jan. 10, inking a one-year deal with the network. After two years of controversy and boycotting, will the stars show up to celebrate their noms and wins? Has the embroiled organization done enough to win back Hollywood’s favor?

Ana de Armas was on the cover of Variety magazine this week to discuss her role in Andrew Dominik’s NC-17 take on Marilyn Monroe, “Blonde,” which drops on Netflix on Sept. 28. While the film started strong at its premiere at the Venice Film Festival, the movie has proven to be incredibly divisive with critics and audiences who are catching up with it. What does that mean for de Armas’ Oscar chances?

The internet was ablaze with the news that Michelle Williams will campaign for best actress, instead of supporting actress, for her work as the free-spirited mother in Steven Spielberg’s “The Fabelmans.” Can she compete with the likes of Cate Blanchett and Michelle Yeoh? Will the race allow another inspired entry such as Mia Goth’s brilliantly terrifying work in the horror flick “Pearl?”

Finally, aside from the finale of this season of “The Bachelor,” television was buzzing with new and returning shows. Among them, “Dancing with the Stars” premiered for the first time exclusively on Disney+. Does this serve as a test for future programs to build viewership in the future, and could we see shows like “American Idol,” and ultimately even the Oscars, make a similar move to streaming down the line?

Hosted by Variety chief correspondent Elizabeth Wagmeister and senior awards editor Clayton Davis, Variety’s “The Take,” presented by Apple TV+, is a weekly series that navigates the week’s top stories from entertainment, pop culture and media, while providing expert analysis and exclusive insight on what’s buzzing in Hollywood. Filmed in Variety’s state-of-the-art studio in Los Angeles, new episodes are released on Fridays on, YouTube and social media.

Correction: In this week’s episode of “The Take,” the 103 new journalists added to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association were referred to as “non-voting members.” This is inaccurate. They are “non-member voters.” They are allowed to vote for the Golden Globes, but are not considered full members of the HFPA.
