       Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are the silver lining to a likely strange
       Golden Globes
       Analysis by Kendall Trammell, CNNUpdated: Sun, 28 Feb 2021 16:44:51
       GMTSource: CNN
       We're only two months into the new year, and everything is still
       just as strange as 2020.
       The 78th Annual Golden Globe Awards are shaping up to be no exception
       to that trend.
       The high-spirited, often unpredictable (and boozy) event, where film
       and television creatives come together to be honored by some 87 members
       of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, will be live and — like
       most everything else these days — largely virtual in the ongoing
       There will be no red carpet or audience of nominees crowded at tables
       in the ballroom of The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills,
       California. Co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, leading the festivities
       for a fourth time, will be separate but together, as it were, on two
       different coasts.
       The unusual setup is befitting of this most unusual year. Instead of
       flocking to movie theaters, we streamed blockbuster hits from home on
       whatever screens we had — big or small. TV pivoted plot lines to
       cover our reality, Covid-19 and the Black Lives Matter movement. We
       binge-watched a lot, and some of those shows we obsessed over were just
       as strange as the times we're living. (I'm looking at you,
       "Tiger King.") 
       Thankfully, we'll have Fey and Poehler to offer us some comic
       relief on Sunday. If we're lucky, they'll have us laughing
       through the night, reminding us there are still good things in the
       world that are worth a smile.
       Follow CNN all night long for complete coverage. The Golden Globes air
       at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. 
       For your (Golden Globes) weekend
       Three things to watch:
       The Golden Globe best drama and musical or comedy motion picture
       This week's special edition of Pop Life will get you ready for the
       Globes. The good news is you can stream almost all of them at home
       right now. Some of these might even snag some Oscar nominations, so
       better get a head start.
       Best Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy
       • "Borat Subsequent Moviefilm" — streaming on Amazon
       • "Hamilton" — streaming on Disney+
       • "Music" — available for a fee on YouTube, Apple TV+ and
       • "Palm Springs" — streaming on Hulu

       • "Nomadland" — streaming on Hulu
       • "Promising Young Woman" — available for a fee on
       YouTube, Apple TV+ and Amazon
       • "The Trial of the Chicago 7" — streaming on Netflix
       Two things to listen to:
       The Golden Globe best original song and score nominees
       Go ahead and expect some of this music to be stuck in your head. (I may
       or may not have listened to the "Tenet" soundtrack on my
       morning jog.)
       Best Original Song — Motion Picture
       • "Fight for You" from "Judas and the Black
       • "Hear My Voice" from "The Trial of the Chicago
       • "Io Sì (Seen)" from "The Life Ahead"
       • "Speak Now" from "One Night in Miami"
       • "Tigress & Tweed" from "The United States vs. Billie
       Best Original Score — Motion Picture
       • Alexandre Desplat for "The Midnight Sky"
       • Ludwig Göransson for "Tenet"
       • James Newton Howard for "News of the World"
       • Atticus Ross and Trent Reznor for "Mank"
       • Jon Batiste, Atticus Ross and Trent Reznor for "Soul"
       One thing to talk about:
       CNN's Brian Lowry wrote that events like the Globes still give
       ammunition for that friend of yours who has been urging you to watch
       "Ted Lasso" or "The Flight Attendant," even if that
       means anteing up for a subscription.
       Especially this year, the nominations underscore that whatever the new
       normal will look like for the entertainment industry after the
       pandemic, "normal" won't be a term that applies to this
       year's awards season.
