Published: Tuesday 2nd Mar 2021 by Rashad

Despite boasting historic wins and many-a-memorable moment during the February 28 broadcast of the 78th Annual Golden Globes, Sunday’s Tina Fey and Amy Poehler-hosted telecast drew in its lowest NBC ratings to date.

More inside:

Viewership = 6.9 million 

Netting an average audience of 6.9 million viewers on NBC, the figure ranks as the lowest viewership tally the Globes’ have drawn in their 27-year history of airing on the network.


“Compared to last year, the 2021 edition marks around a 62 percent decline from the January 2020 telecast, which drew 18.3 million viewers and a 4.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic.

Despite pulling in small audience numbers, Golden Globe statuettes went to several big-name, surprising contenders during the broadcast, including The United States vs. Billie Holiday star Andra Day, who pulled off a shocking upset for Best Actress — Drama (and became the category’s first Black winner in 35 years). Nomadland helmer Chloé Zhao further made history as the first Asian woman to win Best Director, while her movie became the first Best Picture — Drama winner to be directed by a woman in Globes history.”

    the only reason why the Golden Globes was a low-rated just because who gives a f*** about the Golden Globes is just because the Golden Globes never motherfuking annoys their mother f****** black people even though they do get Awards and stuff like that the white people are going to watch it at just because they find out that more black people are going to win the awards and white people so you know the way things are going to be low.

      6.9 mil is a lot of people yet still a HUGE decline from 2020.

      Not surprising though considering this happens to EVERY award show every year. Award shows and celebrities have lost their mystique due to social media.
