Golden Globes’ biggest losers: Glenn Close, Frances McDormand and the voters

It may be an honor to be nominated, but people usually come to Hollywood awards shows to win. 

Sunday’s semi-virtual and very messy Golden Globes ceremony kicked off a strange pandemic awards season in Hollywood. There were Zoom winners, masked first responders in the audience and hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler cracking jokes from stages on different coasts. And there were also a few winners celebrated for their work in film and television in 2020.
