The biggest winners of the 78th Golden Globes were "Nomadland" and "Borat Subsequent Moviefilm."

The two films earned awards for best picture; "Nomadland" for the drama category and "Borat Subsequent Moviefilm" for the comedy or musical division.

Among notable achievements of the night, Chloe Zhao, the director behind "Nomadland," became the first woman to win the best director award since 1984 when Barbara Streisand secured an award for "Yentl."

Despite nominations for Black actors and filmmakers being sparse, winners were not in short supply. John Boyega, Daniel Kaluuya, Andra Day and the late Chadwick Boseman were all honored for their work during Sunday's ceremony.

Additionally, Jon Batiste secured a best score win alongside Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. "Soul" took home the award for best animated film, earning co-directors Kemp Powers and Pete Docter trophies.

For the television awards "Schitt's Creek," "Queen's Gambit" and "The Crown" dominated across acting and best series categories.

Much of the broadcast was overshadowed by the recent revelation that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association did not have any Black voters.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted the ceremony from opposite coasts, and didn't pull any punches with the HFPA.

"We should have told you," Poehler said. "Everyone is upset with the HFPA and their choices. Look, a lot of flashy garbage got nominated, but that happens. That is their thing. But a number of Black actors and Black-led projects were overlooked."

"But even with stupid things, inclusivity is important," Fey added. "There's no Black members of the HFPA. You have to change that."

The HFPA also used the broadcast to issue a statement about their plans to include more Black journalists and other minority reporters in its organization in the future.

"Tonight while we celebrate the work of artists from around the globe, we recognize we have our own work to do," Helen Hoehne, vice president of the HFPA said. "Like in film and television, Black representation is vital. We must have Black journalists in our organization."

Many of Sunday's winners used their acceptance speeches as a time to call for diversity and inclusivity in the industry at large.

"In the spirit of inclusion, I hope that this time next year, this ceremony reflects the true breadth and diversity of the film and television being made today, because there is so much more to be celebrated," said Dan Levy, the writer and one of the stars of "Schitt's Creek."

Disclosure: Comcast is the parent company of NBCUniversal and CNBC.

'Mank"' had the most nominations of any film, went home empty-handed

"Mank," a film centered around "Citizen Kane" co-writer Herman Mankiewicz, landed six nominations, the most of any film this year, but failed to take home any trophies Sunday night.

In addition to Fincher's director nod, "Mank" secured nominations for best film, drama; best actor for Gary Oldman and best supporting actress for Amanda Seyfried; best score. Jack Fincher, the director's father who wrote the script before dying in 2003, also was nominated for best screenplay.

"Mank" was one of several titles that helped Netflix garner the most nominations — 42 — for this year's Golden Globes.

While Netflix did ultimately win for best screenplay, that honor went to Aaron Sorkin for "Trial of the Chicago 7," and best actor in a drama film, which went to the late Chadwick Boseman for "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom," the other four awards "Mank" was up for went to other studios.

Netflix garners 10 Globes, most of any distributor

Netflix was the biggest winner on Sunday night. The streaming service won 10 Golden Globes during the telecast including best drama series for "The Crown" and best limited series for "Queens Gambit."

"The Crown" also garnered three acting wins for Emma Corrin, who portrayed Princess Diana, Josh O'Connor, who played Prince Charles and Gillian Anderson, who took on the role of Margaret Thatcher.

Anya Taylor-Joy won the best actress in a limited series award for her turn as Beth Harmon in "Queen's Gambit."

The late Chadwick Boseman was honored with the best actor in a drama award for his work in "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom."

Netflix also scored wins from Rosamund Pike's performance in "I Care A Lot," Aaron Sorkin's screenplay for "Trial of the Chicago 7" and the original song "Io Si (Seen)" from "The Life Ahead."

Disney had the second-most awards with five. It took home prizes for Pixar's "Soul," Searchlight's "Nomadland" and Hulu's "The United States vs. Billie Holliday."

Amazon and the BBC had a combined three wins and WarnerMedia and Pop TV each scored two trophies. Apple, A24 and STX Films each earned one win during the ceremony.

Taylor Simone Ledward, wife of the late Chadwick Boseman, accepted the best actor in a motion picture drama award on his behalf Sunday.

Boseman, known to many as King T'Challa, the Black Panther, from Marvel's Cinematic Universe, was a recurring face in the awards world for iconic performances in films like "42," "Get on Up" and "Marshall."

"He would thank God," Ledward said, tearfully. "He would thank his parents. He would thank his ancestors for their guidance and their sacrifice."

As Ledward spoke, the broadcast cut to a number of nominees watching from home as they reacted to her words, many holding back tears or wiping them from their faces.

"He would say something beautiful, something inspiring, something that would amplify that little voice that tells you 'you can,' that tells you 'keep going,' that calls you back to what you are meant to be doing at his moment in history," she said.

'Let's all of us make an effort to expand that tent," Fonda says

Jane Fonda accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award during the Golden Globes ceremony. During her speech, Fonda praised a number of films released in the last year that helped "generate a way for us to see and hear what we may have been afraid of seeing and hearing."

"Just this year, 'Nomadland' helped me feel love for the wanderers among us," she said. "And 'Minari' helped to open my eyes to the realities of immigrants dealing with life in a new land. 'Judas and the Black Messiah,' 'Ma Rainey,' 'The U.S. vs. Billie Holliday,' and 'One Night in Miami' and others have deepened my empathy for what being Black has meant."

"'Ramy' helped me feel what it means to be Muslim-American," she continued. "'I May Destroy You' has taught me to consider sexual violence in a whole new way."

Fonda closed out her speech by explaining how stories can change people and that Hollywood has been afraid of its own story.

"There's a story we have been afraid to see and hear about ourselves and this industry," she said. "The story about which voices we respect and elevate and which we tune out. A story of who is offered a seat at the table and who is kept out of the room where decisions are made. Let's all of us, including all the groups that decide who gets hired and what gets made and who wins awards, let's all of us make an effort to expand that tent."

"Norman Lear is among the most prolific creators of this generation," said Ali Sar, the HFPA president, said in a statement. "His career has encompassed both the Golden Age and Streaming Era, throughout which his progressive approach addressing controversial topics through humor prompted a cultural shift that allowed social and political issues to be reflected in television. His work revolutionized the industry and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is honored to name him as the 2021 Carol Burnett Award recipient."

Remote award shows are hard

The Golden Globes is underway and it's not without its hiccups.

The sound was missing when Daniel Kaluuya went to accept his award. And when John Boyega unseated "Schitt's Creek's" Daniel Levy, he said, "Do I just talk automatically?"

Then there was whatever was happening with Catherine O'Hara's husband's phone.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler take aim at HFPA in opening monologue

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler kicked off the 78th Golden Globes from opposite coasts Sunday night. The hosts used their opening monologue to sling barbs at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for its recent membership scandal.

Last week, it was revealed that the HFPA did not have a single Black voter in its organization.

Fey and Poehler made several jokes about the organization before offering up some more sober commentary:

"We should have told you," Poehler said. "Everyone is upset with the HFPA and their choices. Look, a lot of flashy garbage got nominated, but that happens. That is their thing. But a number of Black actors and Black-led projects were overlooked."

"But even with stupid things, inclusivity is important," Fey added. "There's no Black members of the HFPA . You have to change that."

HFPA to address lack of Black voters during Golden Globes telecast

During NBC's Golden Globes preshow, co-host Susan Kelechi Watson ("This Is Us") told viewers that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association will address its lack of Black voters during the telecast.

The HFPA is a group of 87 Los Angeles-based journalists that work for foreign media outlets. None of these members are Black.

"We are told that the HFPA will address it directly in the show tonight," Watson said. "And I for one am very much looking forward to hearing what they have to say."

Black-led dramas left out of the running for best picture

It was a banner year for Black ensemble films. "One Night in Miami," "Da 5 Bloods," "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom" and "Judas and the Black Messiah" stunned critics. However, none of these films were nominated for best picture or best screenplay.

While Regina King's directorial debut earned her a Golden Globes nomination, her film "One Night in Miami" was denied the best picture nod in the drama category.

"One Night in Miami" secured nominations for best original song and best supporting actor for Leslie Odom Jr., who portrayed Cooke. Still, many expected the film to get a best picture nomination and a best screenplay nod for Kemp Powers, who also co-wrote and co-directed the Pixar film "Soul."

"Ma Rainey's Black Bottom" garnered acting nominations for Viola Davis and the late Chadwick Boseman and "Judas and the Black Messiah" earned a best supporting actor nomination and one for best song. "Da 5 Bloods" was shut out.

Netflix heads into the ceremony with the most nominations

Netflix snagged the most nominations for the 78th Golden Globes, with 42.

Twenty of those nods came from television shows like "The Queen's Gambit," "Ozark," "The Crown" and "Unorthodox." The rest came from films like "Mank," and "The Trial of the Chicago 7."

Netflix has secured an outstanding number of nominations in recent years, often topping the list as the most nominated distributor. This domination underscores the changing Hollywood landscape, one that embraces streaming content just as much as traditional television or theatrical releases.

Still, just because a distributor has the most nominations doesn't automatically mean it generates the most wins. Netflix has a habit of amassing nominations, but hasn't had a solid history of turning those nods into trophies.

At both the Golden Globes ceremony and the Academy Awards last year, Netflix led the pack with the most nominations. Out of 17 nods at the Globes, Netflix took home two prizes. At the Oscars, its 24 nominations also resulted in just two wins.

A historic year for the best directing category

History was made this year during the unveiling of the 2021 Golden Globe nominees.

The Hollywood Foreign Press honored three female directors, the first time that more than one woman has been nominated in the best director category in any one year.

Regina King was nominated for "One Night in Miami," Chloe Zhao for "Nomadland" and Emerald Fennell for "Promising Young Woman." David Fincher was also nominated for directing "Mank" and Aaron Sorkin for "The Trial of the Chicago 7."

If one of these women secures the award, it will be the first time a female director has won since 1984, when Barbara Streisand secured an award for "Yentl."

HFPA slammed for absence of Black voters ahead of ceremony

Just days before the Golden Globes ceremony, Time's Up, the Hollywood coalition formed in the wake of the #MeToo movement, as well as a number of high profile celebrities slammed the Hollywood Foreign Press Association on social media for its lack of Black memberships.

The HFPA is a group of 87 Los Angeles-based journalists that work for foreign media outlets. Earlier this week, it was discovered that the association didn't have a single Black voter in its organization.

The revelation, which came courtesy of reporting from the Los Angeles Times, only increased the outrage Hollywood felt over the absence of several Black-centric films from the nomination pool.

"Da 5 Bloods," "Judas and the Black Messiah," "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom," " One Night in Miami" and "The United States vs. Billie Holiday" were all left out of best picture contention.

On Thursday, the HFPA issued a statement that said it was "fully committed" to diversifying its membership.

"We understand that we need to bring in Black members, as well as members from other underrepresented backgrounds, and we will immediately work to implement an action plan to achieve these goals as soon as possible," the organization said.

This pledge seemed insufficient to the Time's Up, which only a day later, tweeted "A cosmetic fix isn't enough."
