All the Nerdy Things You Like Didn’t Win the Golden Globes Last Night

Well, that wasn’t particularly surprising, but it was slightly disappointing. Genre entertainment lost out big time at the virtual 2021 Golden Globe Awards. Critical darlings like The Crown, The Queen’s Gambit, and Nomadland won big over the few nerdy nominations such as The Mandalorian, Lovecraft Country, and Palm Springs, but there are still a few things worth noting.

Black Panther’s Chadwick Boseman posthumously won Best Actor in a dramatic movie for Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and The X-Files’ Gillian Anderson won Best Supporting Actress in a limited series for her portrayal of Margaret Thatcher in The Crown. Pixar’s Soul became the studio’s umpteenth Best Animated Feature win, this time over the critically acclaimed Apple TV+ film Wolfwalkers. Perhaps most notably, Chloé Zhao won Best Movie and Best Director for Nomadland, which is just another encouraging sign for her work helming Marvel’s upcoming Eternals movie.
