But none of the stars were present at the event.
Traditionally one of Hollywood’s biggest parties and the first stop of the film industry’s awards season, this year’s Golden Globes were overshadowed by a boycott by those who accuse organizers of unethical practices.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), made up of about 100 writers linked to foreign publications, is the one who decides the awards and is in the eye of the hurricane for accusations of corruption and racism, among others.
The ceremony, whose result used to boost the box office and guide expectations for the Oscars, attracted an audience of millions of people on television and set trends on social networks.
But this year, NBC television, in charge of the broadcast, pulled the show from its grid.
The impact on the winners on Twitter was also clouded by consternation in the United States over the death of comedian Bob Saget.
A Los Angeles Times report revealed that the HFPA had no black members, which opened the doors for more criticism from Hollywood and its biggest stars.
Since the scandal exploded, the association has been quick to implement some reforms.
This Sunday, the association released prerecorded videos of actors Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis praising the group’s work.
None of the main actors celebrated their awards immediately on social networks, although DeBose and Zegler of “Love without barriers” commemorated theirs.
Zegler said she was awarded exactly three years after being cast for the role out of 30,000 applicants. “Life is very strange,” he wrote.
“There is still work to be done but when you work so hard on a project … having the recognition will always be special. Thank you,” DeBose tweeted.
The film’s Twitter account congratulated the cast and crew on their three Globes.
The Twitter of “Encanto” also commemorated the victory.
“Let’s celebrate! Congratulations to the cast and crew of Encanto de Disney on their Golden Globes win for Best Animated Feature Film!” The production tweeted.
“What did the Golden Globes become? It went from being a Hollywood noble time event to a Twitter thread,” writer Raymond Arroyo tweeted.
Despite the atmosphere that marked the Golden Globes, the victories of “The power of the dog” and “Love without barriers” confirm their credentials as competitors for this awards season that concludes in March with the Oscars.
The Campion-directed western starring Benedict Cumberbatch has received good reviews, as has Spielberg’s version of “Love Without Barriers” which, however, did not triumph at the box office.
“Belfast,” Kenneth Branagh’s incisive black-and-white production that recounts the explosion of violence in his hometown in the late 1960s, is considered a major contender this season, and although tonight it led with seven nominations, like “The Power of the Dog,” it only won for Best Screenplay.
Actor Andrew Garfield won Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy for his role in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “tick tick … BOOM!”
