2021 Golden Globes ratings

Another year, another Golden Globes ceremony in the books. But considering the unique combination of multiple controversies roiling within the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (the organization responsible for the show) and the fact that the ratings for this past weekend’s broadcast were absolutely abysmal, maybe it’s time to put this particular awards show out to pasture.
