Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, from Los Angeles and New York, respectively, will be the masters of ceremonies for these very unique Golden Globes due to the coronavirus crisis and will not feature, among other things, the traditional star-studded red carpet .
Beyond that Poehler and Fey will present these awards for the fourth time, very little is known about what the Golden Globes will look like this time.
However, the HFPA announced today that it has reached an agreement with Twitter for this social network to host “HFPA Presents: Globes Countdown Live”, the official countdown program for the Golden Globes that will be broadcast on Sunday, February 28. before the gala.
Latin actress and singer Sofía Carson and journalist Zuri Hall will host “HFPA Presents: Globes Countdown Live.”
Two Netflix films, “Mank” (six nominations) and “The Trial of the Chicago 7” (five mentions), lead the film nominations for the Golden Globes.
Behind are, with four nominations per head, “Promising Young Woman”, “The Father” and “Nomadland”, which is the great favorite for this strange season of awards in Hollywood.
Netflix also dominated the television sections, where “The Crown” (six nominations), “Schitt’s Creek” (five nominations) and “Ozark” (four mentions) appear as the series with the most statuette options.
