The second decade of the new century brings dramatic changes to the industry: international markets become leaders in ticket sales, super hero, horror and action franchises are the studios’ bread-and-butter, and creative talent migrates in droves to the new mobile and home entertainment platforms, the new independent cinema of the 2010s. Forty years after the New Hollywood revolution, a new generation of filmmakers re-focuses cinema, exploring what it means to be human in the 21st century and how to give voices to the themes of inclusiveness and diversity. The Golden Globes are quick to acknowledge this exciting new wave, from Ava DuVernay and Kathryn Bigelow to Steve McQueen, from Alejandro Iñarritu and Damien Chazelle to Barry Jenkins. And while we look at the future, the legacy of our past catches up with us, as we celebrate 75 years promoting international dialogue and understanding through images and ideas.
