For the fifth time, Ricky Gervais hosted the 77th annual Golden Globes and his jokes and roasts did not disappoint the crowd. This year in television and film, there were definitely some clear cut winners and among them were Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, HBO’s Succession and Chernobyl, and Amazon’s Fleabag.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood was the biggest winner of the night, snagging three awards – best motion picture – musical or comedy, best supporting actor for Brad Pitt, and best screenplay for Tarrantino. Trailing behind winning two awards were Sam Mendes’ war drama 1917 and Todd Phillips’ Joker.
The winners for television shows happened to be a three-way tie between Chernobyl, Fleabag, and Succession, which all won two awards. There were also many other exciting things that happened at the ceremony – Renée Zellweger won her first Golden Globe in 16 years for Judy, Hildur Guðnadóttir, the composer for Joker, was the first woman to win the award for best score, and Awkwafina became the first Asian-American actress to win best actress in a motion picture – musical or comedy in The Farewell.
