With the world of film and television completely turning its back on you, The Golden Globes celebrated their saddest and most irrelevant edition this Sunday with an event without Hollywood stars or television broadcasting that crowned “The Power of the Dog” and the new “West Side Story.”

Only a handful of HFPA members and guests from its social programs attended what was traditionally known as “the prelude to the Oscars.”
