The 79th edition of the Golden Globe awards, and no one to watch- no live audience, no live streaming, no broadcast. Only a world full of people in anticipation to see the direction of these prestigious awards. Although, the awards did meet a mass boycott with no celebrity on the red carpet as it’s battling the allegation of diversity and ethics. The blackout kept aside, we still have a list of winners, and you definitely don’t want to miss this, just because you’re a loyal fan of the movies!
Let’s phase right in with the television awards and then move to the movies.
