Golden Globe 2024: “Oppenheimer” and “Succession” win the most important awards

The American EpicOppenheimer” of Christopher Nolan dominated the 81st Golden Globe Awards, winning best drama filmwhile “Poor Things” of Yorgos Lanthimos achieved a surprise victory over “Barbie” to triumph in the category of best comedy or musical.

If awards season had primed itself for a second Barbenheimer showdown, this round went to “Oppenheimer.” He also won best director for Nolan, best dramatic actor for Cillian Murphybest supporting actor for Robert Downey Jr. and best original music for Ludwig Göransson.

“Golden Globe journalists, thank you for changing and therefore changing your name”Downey said.

In addition to best comedy or musical, “Poor Things” also won for the performance of Emma Stone like Bella.

“I see this as a romantic comedy,” Stone said. “But in the sense that Bella falls in love with life itself, more than with a person.”

Lily Gladstone won the award for best actress in a dramatic motion picture for “Killers of the Flower Moon” of Martin Scorsese. Gladstone, who began her speech speaking the language of her native tribe, the Blackfeet Nation, is the first Indigenous winner in the category.

“This is a historic victory”Gladstone said. “It doesn’t just belong to me.”

The Globes are turning 81, but they were facing a new and uncertain chapter. After tumultuous editions and numerous scandals, The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) dissolved, making way for a new Globes, on a new television station (CBS).to try to regain its position as the third most important awards ceremony of the year, after the Oscars and the Grammys.

The gala had a difficult start. The master of ceremonies Joy Koy took the stage at the Beverly Hilton International Ballroom in Beverly Hills, California and the Filipino-American’s monologue touched on some expected topics: The weight-loss drug Ozempic, Meryl Streep’s award-winning ability and the long run of “Oppenheimer”(“I needed another hour,” he said).

After a joke that didn’t get laughs, Koy, who was named host after some bigger names declined, also noted how quickly he had been chosen for the job. “Hey, I got the job 10 days ago. Do you want a perfect monologue?”Koy said. “I wrote some of these (jokes) and they are the ones you laugh at.”

Downey’s win, his third Globe, denied him one Ryan Gosling and his Kenergy or Ken energy, which was considered one of his strongest competitors in one of the many head-to-head contests between “Oppenheimer” and Greta Gerwig’s “Barbie.” The filmmakers faced off in the best direction category, where Nolan triumphed.

“Barbie” also won several awards

Two hours passed before “Barbie,” the biggest box office hit of the year, with more than $1.4 billion in ticket sales, won an award. “What Was I Made For?” by Billie Eilish won the award for best song and, shortly after, “Barbie” took home the new Globes award for “cinematic and box office achievement”. Some thought the prize might go to Taylor Swiftwhose “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour” also set box office records.

Margot Robbie, “Barbie” star and producer, accepted the award in a pink dress inspired by the 1977 Barbie Superstar.

“We would like to dedicate this to every person on the planet who dressed especially and went to the best place on Earth: the movie theaters.”Robbie said.

“Barbie” and “Oppenheimer,” two box office hits united by a common release date, also competed in the best screenplay category. But, surprisingly, Justine Triet and Arthur Harari won for the screenplay of the French court drama “Anatomie d’une chute” (“Anatomy of a Fall”). Subsequently, Triet’s film also won the award for best foreign language film.

Although the Globes have no direct correlation with the Academy Awards, they can boost campaigns at a crucial time. Voting for Oscar nominations begins Thursday and the Barbenheimer twin sensations remain the favorites.

However, other contenders loom, including “Poor Things” and “The Holdovers.”

Paul Giamatti and Da’Vine Joy Randolph they won for “The Holdovers” by Alexander Payne. Giamatti, who reunited with Payne two decades after “Sideways,” won best actor and Randolph won for her portrayal of a grieving woman in the boarding school drama set in the 1970s.

“Oh, Mary, you have changed my life.”Randolph said of his character. “You have made me feel seen in so many ways I had never imagined.”

“The Boy and the Heron” (original title “Kimitachi wa dô ikiru ka”) by Hayao Miyazaki won the award for best animated filmsurpassing “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.”

“Succession” and “The Bear” dominate television

The last season of “Succession” took the television aspect by storm. It won best drama series for the third time, a mark that ties the record set by “Mad Men” and “The X-Files.” They also won three stars from the series HBO: Matt Macfadyen, Sarah Snook and Kieran Culkin.

“It’s bittersweet, but things like this make it a lot sweeter.”said “Succession” creator Jesse Armstrong.

“The Bear” of Hulu It also took home three awards, including best comedy series. Jeremy Allen White he won for the second time, but now he had company. Ayo Edebiri He won his first Globe for his leading performance in the second season of the series. She thanked her agents’ assistants and managers.

“For the people who answer my emails”Edebiri said.

“Beef” won three awards: best limited series and acting awards for Ali Wong and Steven Yeun.

The Globes also added a new award for best stand-up comedy performance on television. Surprisingly it was for Ricky Gervais, who did not attend the gala of which he was host several times. Some expected Chris Rock to win for “Selective Outrage,” his response to Will Smith’s slap.

The return of the Globes

A few years ago, the Golden Globes were on the brink of collapse. After The Los Angeles Times published a report revealing that the HFPA had no black members, Hollywood boycotted the organization. The 2022 Globes were practically canceled and taken off television. After the renovations, the Globes returned to NBC last year with a one-year deal, but with a Tuesday night time slot. Hosted by Jerrod Carmichael, the telecast attracted 6.3 million viewers, a new low for NBC and a far cry from the 20 million who once tuned in to the awards show.

The Golden Globes were acquired by Eldridge Industries and Dick Clark Productions, owned by Penske Media, and became a for-profit company. The HFPA (which normally had about 90 voters) was dissolved and a new group of about 300 entertainment journalists from around the world now vote for the awards.

Questions remain about the Globes’ long-term future, but its value to Hollywood studios continues to provide a boost in promotional campaigns for awards hopefuls. (The Oscars will be held until March 10). This year, due to strikes by actors and writers, the Globes are broadcast before the Emmys, which have been postponed until January 15.

With movie ticket sales still 20% below pre-pandemic pace and the industry facing a potentially dangerous 2024 at the box office, hollywood I needed the Golden Globes as much as ever.
