In the second year of the pandemic, we are seeing awards season get taken fully online. The intro to awards season, The Golden Globes, proceeded this year with Amy Poehler and Tina Fey hosting on opposite coasts-Fey in New York City, and Poehler in Los Angeles, with first responders as audience members.
Nominees for the respective awards were in their homes to accept the nomination and the award, and everyone's slightly different lifestyle was shown off before the cameras. There were kids, and pets and plenty of other fun little easter eggs about each celebrity tucked into their little zoom frame.
And then there was Al Pacino, who may have quite literally been tucked in on the air.
Pacino—who seemed well on his way to dreamland—appears to jerk awake at the nominations for Best Actor in a Television Drama Series.
Pacino was nominated for his role in Amazon Prime's Hunters.
Pacino has received four Golden Globe wins and almost 20 nominations, plus the Cecil B. DeMille award, so he's been through all of this before.
And it shows.
One thing we have all become far too familiar with over this past year is Zoom fatigue, where all of our senses just become exhausted past a reasonable point once we've spent too long staring at the screen.
Pacino is clearly not immune to this phenomenon.
If there was ever a thing that was a perfect encapsulation of the last year as a whole, it is most certainly an A-list celebrity being asleep over Zoom being broadcast live on television.
