Nominees and audiences had to follow an Internet version of the 78th Golden Globe Awards Ceremony this year as the awards’ winners were announced during an online broadcast on the evening of Sunday February 28.

Director Chloé Zhao made a live-stream appearance during the award ceremony and the symbolic presentation was made by actor Bryce Dallas Howard. The movie NOMADLAND won in the “Best Picture Drama” category and Chloé Zhao, the film’s maker, also scooped the “Best Director” award. After Barbra Streisand for YENTL, she is only the second woman in the history of the Golden Globes to win in this category.

NOMADLAND is a road movie teeming with images of captivating beauty that broaches the issue of old-age poverty in the USA. Lead actress Frances McDormand carries the movie as a courageous female figure who takes her fate into her own hands.

Actress Rosamund Pike was also visibly delighted when she was honoured with the “Best Actress (Musical & Comedy)” award for her role in I CARE A LOT. The movie by J Blakeson also screened as a ZFF Gala Premiere last year.

I CARE A LOT is a not-too-serious, action-packed gangster thriller full of offbeat humour and curious characters. Rosamund Pike embodies a femme fatale living life in the fast lane when she is forced by an adversary to slam on the brakes.
