And the Golden Globe goes to...

Award season kicked off on Feb. 28 and the biggest names from the big and small screen were recognized at the 2021 Golden Globes.

Hosted by Amy Poehler at the Beverly Hilton Hotel and Tina Fey in New York City's Rainbow Room at Rockefeller Center, this year's virtual award show kicked off a season unlike any other. And although the red carpet and acceptance speeches felt different this time around, there was still plenty to celebrate from the past year.

Netflix lead the way in both film and television nominations, with Mank and The Crown scoring six nods each. Schitt's Creek followed The Crown with five nods, while Ozark and The Undoing each landed four. For the movie categories, all eyes were on The Trial of the Chicago 7 and Hamilton, which both earned big nominations. 

Nominees and winners are voted on by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, a non-profit organization comprised of approximately 90 journalists from 55 countries around the world. Previously, E! News confirmed that Norman Lear would be honored with the Carol Burnett Award while Jane Fonda would accept the Cecil B. DeMille Award.
