WHERE AND WHEN TO SEE THE CEREMONY?
The 78th Golden Globes ceremony will begin precisely at 2 a.m. (French time) on the night of Sunday February 28 through Monday March 1. This award ceremony, organized by theHollywood Foreign Press Association and considered to be the antechamber of the Oscars, will, pFor the first time in its history, pandemic obliges, organized in a virtual way. Actresses Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, live from New York and Beverly Hills respectively, will officiate at the presentation.
To see this ceremony already like no other, you will have to connect to Canal + from 11:45 pm. After a decryption of the issues signed by Didier Allouch followed by an introduction to the show and the pre-ceremony, the festivities will be commented live and on set from France by Renan Cros (Le Cercle Séries) and Pierre Zeni (L’Instant Cinéma), who will be surrounded by columnists Ava Cahen (Le Cercle Cinéma), Mégane Choquet (AlloCiné) and Perrine Quennesson (Le Cercle Séries), as well as Ramzy Malouki (Canal + correspondent in Los Angeles and member of the Golden Globes jury).
Which work will succeed 1917, winner in the Best Dramatic Film category last year? If The Chicago Seven and Nomadland seem to have the favors of the predictions, nothing seems to be completely settled, with the presence of the solid outsiders that are the Mank of David Fincher, Promising Young Woman and The Father.
Will the Best Directing Award go to a woman for the first time in almost four decades? Will a posthumous award be given to the late Chadwick Boseman? Will the French Tahar Rahim be sacred? Frances McDormand or Carrey Mulligan? Finally, will the platforms (Netflix is nominated 22 times!) Be honored in the charts? So many questions that will find their answers tonight.

With 20 nominations in its pocket and a presence in all the main categories, the Netflix platform could well strike a blow at the series list of these Golden Globes 2021. If the historic The Crown, the most cited program, is well placed to win the Prize for Best Drama Series, it may be more complicated for The Lady’s Game, which will have to cross swords, in the category Best mini-series, with The Undoing, Small Ax, Normal People and Unorthodox. Nice battle in perspective.

Will the Golden Globes have a little French accent? The French cinema will in any case have four chances to leave with a reward. Tahar Rahim, nominated for his performance in Designated Guilty, is in the running alongside, please, Anthony Hopkins and Gary Oldman. The actor, who did not hide his joy, at our microphone, to participate in this prestigious ceremony, will it create a surprise?
The composer Alexandre Desplat, for his part, is cited for the music of Midnight in the Universe, while the director, screenwriter and writer Florian Zeller is competing for the screenplay of The Father. Finally, Deux will hope to glean the Golden Globe for Best Foreign Film.

THE BIG ABSENTS
As in any good self-respecting ceremony, we notice both those present … and those absent! Among the “forgotten” people of these 78th Golden Globes, it’s hard not to notice Christopher Nolan’s Tenet, nominated in only one category (Best Music), as well as Spike Lee’s Da 5 Bloods, completely ignored by the Association of Hollywood foreign press. No Meryl Streep (seen in Let Them All Talk and The Prom) or Tom Hanks (for The Mission) either. Finally, side series, we note the absences of the yet noticed I May Destroy You and Euphoria.

THREE DIRECTORS AT THE APPOINTMENT
It’s historic: for the first time in the history of the Golden Globes, three women are competing in the Best Director category. This is the Chinese Chloé Zhao (Nomadland), Briton Emerald Fennell (Promising Young Woman) and the American Regina King (One Night In Miami). Will one of them succeed Barbra Streisand, the last winner? It was for the feature film Yentl, in … 1984!
