While they did not air on TV like years past, the Golden Globes still went on Sunday night — recognizing the best work in television and cinema of 2020.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association and The Golden Globes spent much of 2021 under intense scrutiny, theGrio previously reported.

After snubbing Black talent in their 2021 nominations, and after the shocking revelation that the association had zero Black members, they were called out very publicly, leading to NBC’s cancellation of the broadcast altogether.

While the controversy led many to wonder whether there would be a Golden Globes at all this year, in December the association announced their nominations and last week, revealed that the ceremony would go off with “no audience,” presenters, or celebrities in attendance.

There were some history-making wins at the ceremony this year, theGrio reported. Michaela Jaé “MJ” Rodríguez, of Pose, became the first transgender actor to ever win the coveted award.

Fans remember MJ as Blanca Evangelista on the hit FX series, which recently ended its historic run. Will Smith also took home an award for his performance in King Richard, and Ariana DeBose snagged Best Supporting Actress for her turn as Anita in West Side Story.
