The show going bicoastal for the first time in history. Amy Poehler and Tina fey hosting from L.A. And New York. Celebrities zooming in with their families but with all the glitz and glamour, the globes taking some big heat. Lara joins us now with more. Hey, Lara. Hey, good morning, Michael. This was a golden globes like no there were a few technical glitches right off the bat reminding us of the challenges of doing a live show in the midst of a, well, of our situation. Tina fey and Amy Poehler may have been broadcasting in different cities, but they were united in their quest to hold the Hollywood foreign press accountable for their actions. The golden globes live from coast to coast. For the first time in globes history taking place in two time Zones with Amy Poehler in L.A. And Tina fey in New York. It's going to be smooth sailing. You won't even notice. Reporter: It didn't take long for them to address one of the biggest controversies this year, that being that of the 87 voting members of the Hollywood foreign press association which runs the globes there are zero black voters. I realize hfpa, maybe you didn't get the memo because your workplace is the back booth of a French McDonald's. But you got to change that. So here's to changing it. Yes, and looking forward to that change. Reporter: The organization vowing to do better. We recognize we have our own work to do, just like in film and television, black representation is vital. We must have black journalists in our organization. Reporter: Presenters like sterling K. Brown taking a dig at the organization from the stage. It is great to be black at the golden globes. Back. Back at the golden globes. Reporter: Jane fonda accepting the Cecil B. Demille award calling for change in Hollywood. Let's all of us make an effort to expand that tent so that everyone rises and everyone's story has a chance to be seen and heard. Reporter: The awards doled out to stars in their living rooms but the night wasn't without technical difficulties. As you can see we unfortunately have a bad connection. Am I on? Is this on? Can I talk now? Do I just talk automatically? Reporter: "The crown" sweeping every category it was nominated for. "The crown." "The crown." Thank you so much. Everyone. Reporter: Actress Emma Corrin grabbing gold for her portrayal. You did have the pleasure of watching Emma who is so radiant as princess Diana and she said such lovely things about you. How did that feel? Oh, man, yeah, she's a great friend and honestly I feel -- I feel like I couldn't have done anything without her and we went on this journey together. We're all there and we're all a family and it just feels great to be able to celebrate. Reporter: Andra day appearing shocked with her win for the "The United States vs. Billie holiday." Okay, so -- can you just give me the paper, please? This is a beautiful story of a black woman, of a person of color, a queer woman being celebrated and honored as the godmother of civil rights. That for me is -- I'm just grateful to god for that. Reporter: Director Chloe Zhao, one of three women nominated for best director this year taking home the globe for "Nomadland" making history as the first Asian woman and just the second female director ever to win in this category. The first, Barbra streisand for "Cental" happened in 1984. Thank you, everyone, who made it possible for me to do what I love. Reporter: Streisand tweeting it's about time. Chadwick Boseman. Reporter: But the most moving moment of the evening, Chadwick Boseman's wife emotionally accepting his award for his role in "Ma Rainey's black bottom" just six months after his passing. I'm going to give me a band and make me some records. I don't know how this works, but we have to take all the moments to celebrate those we love so thank you, hfpa, for this opportunity to do exactly that and, hon, you keep them coming. Well, as you saw there an emotional moment and a very different globes for me too doing interviews with the winners from my basement Iowa with riva by my side. It made it very relaxed, though. Felt like we had more time than usual even with Josh o'connor who was in London where it was 4:00 A.M. We'll have much more with all of our winners coming up for you in our next half hour. Until then, sending it back to you in the studio. We are looking forward to that, Lara. Thank you.
