Golden Globes 2021 LIVE updates: Who’s up for a gong and who’s wearing an actual gown Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the annual Golden Globe Awards, also known as the Gravy Train Express.
I’m Karl Quinn and I’ll be your host for this magnificent event. I’ll be posting live commentary on the awards ceremony from my balcony seat in Melbourne, and I’ll be joined by Michael Idato in Los Angeles and Garry Maddox in Sydney for expert observations throughout. But first, our fabulous and extremely glamorous fashion expert Melissa Singer will be casting her astute eye over all things red carpet. I’ll be back a little later. Right now, in order to try to get into the headspace of a member of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, whose awards these are, I have to attend a special five-course luncheon with unlimited champagne. After that I’m booked in for a spa treatment, then I’ll be whipping off to the Louis Vuitton outlet to pick a designer something or other, gratis of course. It’s exhausting – and frankly, I don’t know how they managed to squeeze in the nominations for Emily in Paris, let alone actually find time to vote. TimesUpGlobes campaign puts pressure on Globes organising body By Michael Idato One of the major themes in today’s telecast is going to be the Times Up campaign around diversity in the organisation which votes for the Golden Globes. If you’ve not been paying too much attention to the entertainment news headlines this week, you may not know it’s become a thing. The voting body behind the Golden Globes is LA’s Hollywood Foreign Press Association, or the HFPA for short. The organisation is already under fire this year after a succession of stinging articles appeared in the Los Angeles Times and New York Times with allegations that their vote was swayed, for example, by a trip to the Paris set of Emily in Paris for the organisation’s members. But a side note in those pieces – that the organisation has no black journalists in its membership – sparked a major wave of criticism led by the activist organisation Times Up, and the HFPA is now under heavy fire over the issue of its own diversity. Spare a thought for the sleepless By Melissa Singer Because of the virutal ceremony, some of the stars are tuning in from some very far-flung places, with very unsociable time differences from New York and Los Angeles. The Crown star Gillian Anderson, glammed up in an olive green dress by Dior, is in Prague, where it’s about 1am. Ouch. We salute her, and totally understand if she’s wearing hotel slippers on her feet off screen.
