Perhaps there is a reason to celebrate in Hollywood after all.

While the coronavirus pandemic has impacted production on movies and TV shows in recent months, the 2021 Golden Globes is determined to carry on. In fact, the show goes live tonight, Feb. 28 with hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey

As expected, Schitt's Creek and The Crown received plenty of love from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association with a wide variety of nominations. As for the movie side, Mank and The Trial of the Chicago Seven lead the film nominations earning six and five nominations, respectively. 

To the delightful surprise of some, Sarah Paulson's role in Ratched as well as Kate Hudson's performance in Sing were recognized by voters.

Set to air on NBC, the 2021 Golden Globes will likely look different as Tina and Amy host the show from opposite coasts. But just like in years past, movie and TV fans can count on plenty of celebrations, big wins and unforgettable moments.
