Golden Globes History: Into The Digital Age (2000-2020)
The new century starts roughly: a blast of horror and fear, wars and financial crisis. But the digital era can’t, won’t be stopped. The expansion of the internet over broadband changes how we communicate, work and move. And, ultimately, how we enjoy ourselves. The digital age is upon us and, two decades into the new century has already completely transformed the entertainment industry. We take in our visual stories everywhere, now – home, gym, theater, on the go. Celluloid is almost a relic. New distribution channels challenge the established powers-that-be, creating new opportunities for talent behind and in front of the camera and bringing new narratives to the forefront. The Golden Globes follow these transformations closely, quickly recognizing new projects, faces, and ideas – and the growing power and creativity of what used to be simply “TV”, and now live on any device we choose. The possibilities are endless.
