This year’s Golden Globes was a bit awkward thanks to a major movement against its organizers, the HFPA (Hollywood Foreign Press Association) after it was made public that the organization has no Black members.

The annual awards show that is notorious for snubbing Black performances and projects was hosted by Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, who addressed the #TimesUpGlobes controversy at the top of the show on Sunday night.

While many of the night’s nominees, presenters, and past winners have spoken out against the HFPA and lent their support to the #TimesUpGlobes movement, several of them participated in the night’s festivities as a show of respect and support for the nominees. All in all, it was a big night for several Black actors including Andra Day, Daniel Kaluuya, John Boyega, and the late Chadwick Boseman.

Instead of a traditional red carpet, the pre-show featured a tribute to Boseman, who made history after winning Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama for Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom to become only the second-ever posthumous Best Actor winner.

When This Is Us stars Sterling K. Brown and Susan Kelechi Watson hit the stage to present the award for Best Actor in a TV Series Musical or Comedy, they both made sure to say “Black” as many times as possible.
