Award season is officially here! Not to mention, it is actually happening despite the circumstances. The Golden Globe Awards held its 78th show yesterday evening, but this time it was hosted virtually by Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. Awards were presented via video chat to nominees and winners from the comfort of their homes or secluded locations. We witnessed history go down last night as Andra Day and the late Chadwick Boseman won Best Actress and Best Actor in a Motion Picture, respectively. This marks the first time ever where the Best actor and Best Actresses were both awarded to Black people in the same night. Additionally, Andra Day is the now the second woman ever to win Best Actress in a Motion Picture after Whoopi Goldberg in The Color Purple.
Feeding into our fashion cravings for the evening, the stars were still dressed to impress. Glamour is still alive in the midst of a global pandemic and the celebrities definitely showed us that last night.
