A little Ricky Gervais backstory...

Some of the biggest drama at the Golden Globes tonight is expected to happen long before the dramatic film categories.

The choice of Ricky Gervais as host — a fifth tour of duty since 2010 — hasn’t drawn rave reviews given the British comic’s history of controversial jokes during his previous times on the Globes stage. Making the pick more potentially questionable is that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association tapped Sandra Oh as co-host with Andy Samburg last year. The actress was the first Asian American woman to host the telecast — in what was hailed at the time as a move towards more inclusion.

Gervais, however, vowed to The Hollywood Reporter that he would largely go after “pretension and hypocrisy” this time around and stay away from picking on “any one person.” 

Just two weeks ago, Gervais came under fire for several tweets that he insisted were jokes, but were viewed as transphobic by critics. “Nowadays, you've got to make sure they're bulletproof in 10 years' time, with people going through saying, 'He said this once, 10 years [ago],'" Gervais told THR for a recent cover story. "Kevin Hart [lost] his job [as Oscars host] for 10-year-old tweets that he said he was sorry about and deleted at the time. "So there's more pressure on making [the jokes bulletproof].”

How closely will tonight's Golden Globes winners predict the Academy Awards?

It’s almost impossible to read the tea leaves.

That's because the ninety or so international journalists who vote on the Globes have no real overlap with the thousands of industry insiders that make up the Oscars voting body of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences. It’s also harder to gauge because the HPA splits the film categories into drama and musical/comedy, a distinction not made by the Academy Awards. 

But the timing can come into play with today's high-profile Globes telecast airing right in the middle of the six-day voting period for Oscar nominations. And with the Oscars especially early this year on February 9, it's possible that some voters won't have time to watch screeners for all the films, and end up being influenced by the Globes' winners.

Last year, “Green Book,” a surprise winner in the musical/comedy category at the Globes. Then became an even more surprise winner of a best picture Oscar a month later.

The Golden Globes gets a vegan makeover

And the Golden Globes goes to ... vegetables.

This year the Golden Globes will be one of the first large-scale awards ceremonies to serve a completely vegan menu as a part of a larger sustainability effort from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. The last-minute change to a plant-based menu came just a few days before Christmas, when a preview menu had already been finalized with meat on it.

“The climate crisis is impossible to ignore and after speaking with our peers, and friends in the community, we felt challenged to do better,” said Lorenzo Soria, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

Prepared by the Beverly Hilton executive chef Matthew Morgan, the menu will include a chilled beet soup appetizer, mushroom “scallops” over mushroom risotto and other plant based courses. The HFPA also plans to reuse this year’s red carpet at other events throughout the year and serve Icelandic Glacial water in recyclable glass bottles to further reduce the environmental footprint of the ceremony.

Thankfully, for vegan and carnivore attendees alike, the champagne has always been vegan.
