An admission for the lack of diversity
The nominees and winners are chosen by 87 members of the association, which in recent days was the subject of a boycott campaign call #TimesUpGlobes after it became known that none of its members is black.
The organization responded that it will put into action a plan to include black and other traditionally underrepresented members.
Fey and Poehler addressed the issue in the opening speech of the ceremony: “The association is made up of 90 international journalists, none black. We say 90 because a couple may be ghosts and the German member is rumored to be a sausage with a drawn face. “
“The prizes are stupid”Fey said. “But even with stupid things, inclusion is important,” he added, then demanded that the HFPA change the composition of its members.
Later in the gala, three members of the Association admitted from the stage that they must have black journalists in their group and acknowledged that they had internal work to do.
This year, questions also returned that the choices of the nominees and winners can be influenced by promotions and gifts from production companies, something that the association has denied.
Real life characters
Several of the award-winning performers in both film and television brought historical figures into fiction.
Daniel Kaluuya won first prize of the night for his role as the leader of the Black Panther Party Fred Hampton on Judas and the Black Messiah.
“I hope that future generations can see how brilliantly he thought, how brilliantly he spoke and how brilliantly he loved,” he said in recognition of Hampton, who was assassinated at age 21 in 1969.
Andra Day surprised by winning the trophy for best actress for her role as the jazz and swing singer Billie Holiday, as the favorite according to the predictions was Carey Mulligan for her role in Promising Young Woman.
The British Josh O’Connor and Emma Corrin They received separate awards for their portrayals of Princess Diana and Prince Charles of England.
Corrin paid tribute to Princess Diana in her acceptance speech: “You taught me compassion and empathy beyond what I can imagine, “he said.
The renowned British actress Gillian Anderson She was also honored for her portrayal of the former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in the same series.
Chadwick Boseman became the second posthumous winner of the award for best actor in a drama for his work as a jazz musician in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.
The Black Panther actor died at age 43 in August last year of colon cancer.
“He would say something very beautiful, very inspiring“said his wife, Taylor Simone Ledward, tearfully.
“I don’t have his words, but we have to take advantage of the moments to celebrate those we love,” he continued.
Chloe Zhao also gave a heartfelt speech on compassion and how it fueled her desire to make movies.
“It gives us the opportunity to laugh and cry together, to learn from each other and to have more compassion, “he said.
With his young daughter in his arms, American filmmaker Lee Isaac Chung received the award for best foreign language film for Threatened a film centered on a Korean-American family that moves to rural Arkansas in the 1980s.
“She is the reason I made the movie,” he said, referring to his daughter. “It’s about a family trying to learn a language. It’s deeper than any foreign language, it’s a language of the heart“, said.
The award was the subject of controversy for having included the film in a category that generally includes productions not made in the United States. The characters speak more in Korean than English.
Lastly, the legendary actress and activist Jane Fonda used his time on stage to demand more diversity in the industry.
Fonda, who was honored with the Cecil B DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award, said: “Let’s make an effort to expand the tent so that everyone rises and that everyone’s story has a chance to be seen and heard. Let’s be leaders.”
