The Golden Globes virtual show went down last night and it was a big night for Black folks.
Despite the fact that the HFPA has zero voting Black members they attempted to right their wrong and handed out awards to Daniel Kaluuya, Chadwick Boseman, Andra Day, John Boyega and the film, Soul.
Boseman’s widow, Taylor Simone Ledward, accepted his award for Best Actor in a Drama for his role in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. Her touching and emotional acceptance speech on behalf of the late actor was a highlight of the evening.
Andra Day also broke down accepting her award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama for her portrayal of Billie Holiday in The United States v. Billie Holiday.
These beautiful moments don’t fully absolve the HFPA for their lack of inclusion, but thankfully, Golden Globes hosts Tina Fey and Amy Pohler brought the issue right to the big stage.
Hopefully, this will implore the HFPA to do the real work to make sure the organization is inclusive.
