Steven, thank you!” Quan started. “When I started my career as a child actor [playing Short Round] In “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom,” I felt very lucky to be chosen.

“As I got older, I began to wonder if that was the case, if it was just luck. For many years, I was afraid that I had nothing else to offer, and no matter what I did, I would never surpass what I had achieved.” One child continued, “Quan , who also starred as Data in The Goonies”, thanked co-directors Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert “Everything All At Once” for giving him “a chance to try again”.

“The late Toni Morrison said that your life is indeed a miracle—a chance just waiting for you to decide its own destiny. But for that destiny to manifest, I think it takes courage of faith, it takes patience…and it takes a real sense of yourself.”

Bassett also spoke about the late “Black Panther” star, Chadwick Boseman, who died of colon cancer in August 2020 at the age of 43.

“We embarked on this journey with love. We grieved, loved, healed, and were surrounded every day by the light and spirit of Chadwick Boseman,” she said. “We are happy to know that, with this historic Black Panther series, it is part of his legacy that he helped lead us to. We have shown the world what the unity, leadership and love of Black people is like behind them, and in front of the camera.”

Host Jerrod Carmichael addresses the former Golden Globes’ lack of diversity

Jerrod Carmichael kicked off the 80th Golden Globe Awards by laying the show’s issues with diversity front and center.

In his opening monologue, the comedian said, “I’ll tell you why I’m here. I’m here because I’m black.”

He continued, “I’ll pick up everyone in the room, if you settle down a bit.” “I’ll tell you what’s going on. This show didn’t air last year because the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which I wouldn’t say was a racist organization—but they didn’t have a single black member until George died Floyd—so do with that information what you will.”

Carmichael, who said he was paid $500,000 for hosting this year’s show, finished his monologue by shifting the focus to how the Golden Globes ceremony should be on gala night.

“No matter what FPA’s Hollywood past may be, this is an evening we’ll celebrate,” Carmichael added. “I think this industry deserves evenings like this. I’m so glad you’re all here.”

Towards the end of the presentation, HFPA President Helen Huene spoke about what she called “massive change” within the organization.

“We’re proud of the work we’ve done, the progress we’ve made and the journey we’re on,” Hohne said. “We are committed to continuing to strengthen our partnership with Hollywood and with the world to celebrate…the best in film and television.”

“We will continue to support groups that amplify a diverse range of voices and continue to add representation to our organization from around the world, as we did last year,” she added.

Ryan Murphy has been honored with the Carol Burnett Award

“Pose” star Billy Porter took the stage to share a powerful introduction to Ryan Murphy, praising Murphy for his incredible impact in revolutionizing television.

“Prolific, visionary, game-changer, pioneer, champion of truth, brave, boss man, workaholic, ally, mentor, friend—there are not enough words in the English language for me to convey what they mean to me,” Porter said in his introduction.

Then, the acclaimed screenwriter, producer, and director took to the stage to express his gratitude for the honor and share some acknowledgments of his own.

First, he paid tribute to Michaela J. Rodriguez, who made history in 2022 when she won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Drama Series for “Pose,” becoming the first transgender actress to win a Golden Globe.

Murphy spoke afterwards about how receiving the Carol Burnett Award allowed him to “think about what a lifetime of achievement really is.” The key to getting there, he said, is “not being afraid.”

Continuing to honor the characters he called his “heroes”, Murphy spoke of Porter’s influence, calling him “one of the most iconic actors of his generation”.

Murphy also paid tribute to Nessi Nash, who he said “chose love, not fear” when he married Jessica Bates. He said Nash was told “she couldn’t, and shouldn’t do it” and that she would “never work again, and her community and line of work will abandon her.”

He described actor Matt Bomer as a “lifetime action hero” who “challenged the ridiculous rules in place for nearly a century” and said that actor Jeremy Pope was told to “deny who he was – but Jeremy refused to hide.” Murphy called Pope “the future”.

Murphy said he was dedicating his speech to the names he mentioned “to make a point of hope and progress.”

“When I was a guy at home in the 70s watching The Carol Burnett Show,” he said, “I never saw someone like me get an award — or even be a character on a TV show.” All over the world, then and now.”

Murphy is the fourth recipient of the HFPA’s Carol Burnett Award. Previous recipients have included Carol Burnett, Ellen DeGeneres, and Norman Lear.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky makes remarks

Actor Sean Penn provided a video message from Zelensky.

“The war in Ukraine is not over yet, but the tide is turning,” Zelensky said. And it is already clear who will win.

Zelensky thanked “the free people of the free world, those who have united around the support of the free Ukrainian people”. He also said “There will not be a third world war. It is not a trilogy.”

Penn visited Ukraine in November 2022 and presented Zelensky with one of his Oscar statuettes, calling it a “symbolic silly thing” and asking the president to return it to him in Malibu after Ukraine beat Russia.

Zelensky called the gesture “a token of faith in our country’s victor” and awarded Pence a special award called the “Order of Merit, Third Class”.

This is not the first time Zelensky has addressed the audience at the awards ceremony. In April 2022, just weeks after Russian forces invaded Ukraine, Zelensky spoke about the war in a video message at the 2022 Grammy Awards.
