With the world of film and television turning its back completely, the Golden Globes celebrated this Sunday its saddest and most irrelevant edit with an event without Hollywood stars nor television broadcast that crowned ‘The Power of the Dog’ and the new ‘West Side Story’.

In a normal year, the chronicles of the Golden Globes would review the surprises of the record, they would comment on the most outstanding “looks” of the red carpet and they would highlight the most striking or exciting speeches of the Hollywood figures. But nothing has been normal this year for the awards from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA).

Entangled in numerous Accusations of Lack of Diversity and Corruption Against the HFPA and Under the Shadow of the Boycott of the Big and Small Screen Industry, the Golden Globes were held at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Angeles (USA) with a small private event behind closed doors, no televised gala, no red carpet, no Hollywood stars and no accredited press.

Only a handful of HFPA members and guests from its social programs attended what was traditionally known as “the anteroom to the Oscars.”

Far from the fascinating glamor of other editions and without a great television show to uncork the Hollywood awards season, the winners of these atypical and extravagant Golden Globes they were unveiled live on HFPA social media and in a press release when the event ended.
