This year, the Golden Globe Awards will look a whole lot different than usual. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, Golden Globes producers and broadcast network NBC have put together a hybrid ceremony that includes an in-person element in both New York and Los Angeles as well as nominees spread around the world and attending via virtual technology. Gone are the banquet tables and free-flowing drinks Golden Globe attendees are accustomed to enjoying, replaced instead with trappings familiar to those who have been at home for almost a full year: video calls, tight-knit bubbles, and the potential for technical snafus.
