    Black Hollywood kicked off awards season on the 80th Golden Globes red carpet

    As the 80th annual Golden Globes returned to broadcast television for the first time since 2021, Black Hollywood showed up in style.

    The 80th Golden Globe Awards are back for the first time since 2021 and kicked off the 2023 awards season on Tuesday night. After facing backlash for its untelevised 2022 ceremony, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) hit the reset button with this year’s telecast, as the film and television industry’s biggest stars graced the red — well, silver — carpet in the award show’s return to network television.

    With a Black host (Jerrod Carmichael), Black co-executive producers, and presenters — not to mention nominees — many predict the 80th Golden Globe awards will reflect the increasing Black presence within the industry. As we watch to see who will walk away with a Golden Globe, let’s get into the Black excellence on the event’s red carpet.

    Sheryl Lee Ralph

    Receiving her first Golden Globe nomination, Sheryl Lee Ralph channeled her eternal “Dreamgirl” in a sparkling and sleeveless violet gown styled by her daughter, Ivy Victoria-Maurice. Ralph’s gleaming Aliétte gown was designed by celebrity favorite Jason Rembert, who says the color was chosen to represent royalty, per E! News.

    Michaela Jaé Rodriguez 

    Last year, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez made history as the first trans person to win a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Drama series. This year, Rodriguez returned to honor “Pose” creator and Carol Burnett Award winner Ryan Murphy in a Balmain gown styled by Micah McDonald.

    Jerrod Carmichael

    Host Jerrod Carmichael sported several wardrobe changes during the evening, but one of the most striking was the white double-breasted suit he paired with a matching sheer turtleneck and strand of pearls.

    Regina Hall

    Proving the look of leather can also be luxe, Regina Hall cut a sleek figure in a one-shouldered gown and fingerless gloves by Monique Lhuillier.

    Billy Porter

    In an ode to the velvet tuxedo gown that made headlines at the 2019 Academy Awards, Billy Porter reportedly reprised the Christian Siriano look at Ryan Murphy’s request, this time in a vibrant fuchsia version, playfully paired with cornrows.
