There was a lot more Zoom and a lot less glamour. Here are some of the funniest reactions to this year’s awards show.
Despite the continuation of social distancing measures and lockdowns, this year’s Golden Globes aired Sunday, successfully adapting to the remote participation from many of its guests and nominees.
The Hollywood Foreign Press’s annual awards show — usually the least stiff of the bunch and a favorite of those of us who watch these kinds of things due to their propensity for drunk celebs — was held in two places at once: at the Beverly Hilton in L.A. and New York’s Rainbow Room. Hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler led the two stages, guiding a show composed of an audience of limited guests and plenty of video appearances.
The result was a bit of a Frankenstein show that had what many of the pandemic era awards shows are known for: frozen screens and lots of awkward videos, with the addition of some extra technical glitches, relaxed fashion and the presence of household pets. As usual, the internet delivered plenty of memes.
Here are the funniest and most relatable tweets and memes from the Golden Globes 2021:

need to understand how they’re deciding who is in the “background” on zoom. are they getting warned…do they just have to act totally normal the entire time ..??
