I never thought I would see the day when huge syndicate award show broadcasts would start to become a thing of the past. But between crowd struggles due to COVID, and an overall lack of appeal to a general audience, the big pomp, and circumstance surrounding these ceremonies seem to be going by the wayside.

The Golden Globes, arguably one of Hollywood's biggest ceremonies, announced recently that they would not be having an audience, red carpet, or a gathering of any kind. I had at least expected there would be some sort of a stream that would occur with different presenters announcing the winner of each award.

Instead, the trophies were quietly handed out this past weekend, with the list of winners posted to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's website. There are a lot of problems when it comes to award shows, the way winners are chosen, and the lack of diversity when it comes to those nominated for each award. On the flip side, I think it is important to acknowledge and recognize these creators and their crafts. Perhaps this new way of doing things will put the focus back onto the creators, instead of it being a glorified popularity contest? Only time can tell.
