Oppenheimer, Succession, and The Bear win big at the 2024 Golden Globes

This year’s Golden Globes didn’t feature all that many surprising upsets, and host Jo Koy lost the audience on more than one occasion, but the awards event was marked by a number of heartfelt acceptance speeches and memorable moments that made it feel like Hollywood’s ready to get back to work.

Setting aside the messiness of Koy throwing the Golden Globes writers under the bus as his terrible jokes bombed, the evening was sprinkled with a handful of genuinely funny moments as the Hollywood Foreign Press Association gave out its latest batch of golden statues. Though director Greta Gerwig’s Barbie looked to be the odds-on favorite in multiple categories with its 10 nominations, the film ultimately only came away with two wins: Best Original Song for Billie Eilish’s “What Was I Made For?” and the newly created Cinematic and Box Office Achievement award.

Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer nabbed five awards, including Best Director, Best Drama, and Best Actor for Cillian Murphy in the title part. Yorgos Lanthimos’ Poor Things emerged as a surprisingly strong contender as the film won Best Motion Picture Comedy / Musical over Barbie, and Emma Stone won Best Actress in a comedy / musical. Killers of the Flower Moon’s Lily Gladstone made history, becoming the first Indigenous actor to be nominated for and win Best Actress in a play, and Hayao Miyazaki’s The Boy and the Heron understandably took home a Best Animated Feature award.

The Bear also cleaned up with two Best Musical / Comedy wins for Ayo Edebiri and Jeremy Allen White. And while Succession’s multiple wins for Best TV Drama, Best TV Actor, Best TV Actress, and Best Supporting TV Actor came as no surprise, Ricky Gervais’ award for Best Performance in Stand-Up Comedy on Television certainly did.
