The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has made the 78th Golden Globe Awards a weird one.
Hosts ran the show via video call from New York and LA respectively, actors literally got all dressed up with nowhere to go, while and sparked a bunch of speculation about whether or not he was baked.
Yet amidst the unusual celebrity shenanigans, the Globes set aside a little time to acknowledge the hard work of U.S. healthcare workers, paying tribute with a short skit.
Emulating the telehealth conferences that have become familiar to many, performers such as Don Cheadle, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Carey Mulligan asked real healthcare professionals to diagnose what could be causing them symptoms like feeling stuck in a time loop and “trying to murder Andy Samberg again and again,” getting “hot and bothered” with that nasty Bridgerton going around, or possessing an extremely raspy Margaret Thatcher-like voice.
“At first I thought I had The Croods,” says Miranda of his self-diagnosed GI symptoms. “Only children get The Croods,” replies Dr. Suma Chandrasekaran of Montefiore Medical Center.
“This definitely hit me hard, I hear it’s been going around Canada for a while, but people have only caught it here in like, the last year or so?” said Miranda. “That’s Schitt’s Creek. Just take 25 awards and you’ll be fine,” suggests Chandrasekaran.
