The Golden Globes Return to TV Gayer Than Ever

Reading now: 101

After last year’s Golden Globe Awards did not air due to ongoing criticism of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s (HFPA) lack of diversity, this year’s ceremony came back as queer as can be, with recognition of LGBTQ+ characters, performers, and producers.The show kicked off with a monologue from out comedian and host Jerrod Carmichael, who addressed the HFPA’s history of racism directly. “I’m here cause I’m Black,” Carmichael joked, as he opened the show.He also rightly pointed out that he is the show’s first Black host in its 80-year history, and until George Floyd was killed, the HFPA didn’t have a single Black member for years.As the night progressed, Carmichael also referenced his sexuality.

When LGBTQ+ icon Niecy Nash presented an award, Carmichael introduced her by saying: “We both gay now, so that’s cool.” Nash responded by joking that she didn’t know whether people were clapping for her because of her dress (which was gorgeous) or because she’s gay.Over the course of the night, several actresses won awards for their portrayals of characters within the LGBTQ+ community.

For example, Zendaya took home the Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Drama for her role as Rue in Euphoria.Similarly, Cate Blanchett earned the award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama for Tár, in which she played lesbian conductor, Lydia Tár.

Unfortunately, neither actress was present to accept these awards.Hands down, the best (and gayest) part of the night was Ryan Murphy accepting the Carol Burnett Award.
