Surprises and Snubs: The Complete List of Winners at the 2020 Golden Globes

Jessica Waugh Tuesday 07 January 2020

Whether you watched it to experience the highlight reel of the best cinema and television that the year had to offer or simply to see host Ricky Gervais give such a searing opening monologue that even Tom Hanks had to wince, the 77th annual Golden Globes was an event to watch.

It was a night of victories for '1917' at the Golden Globes

This celebration of cinematic and television achievements bestowed awards on some sure-fire hits, with 'Once Upon a Time In...Hollywood' taking home prizes for the Best Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy), its screenplay and Brad Pitt's performance as Cliff Booth. In terms of television, 'Fleabag' enjoyed a repeat of its Emmy Awards success with writer and star Phoebe Waller-Bridge clinching the awards for Best Actress in a Television Series (Musical or Comedy), as well as for the Best Comedy or Musical Television Series overall.

However, the award ceremony was not without its surprises and, no, we're not just talking about Joaquin Phoenix's heavily censored speech following his best actor win for 'Joker'. Though many dedicated cinephiles expected Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino or Bong Joon-ho to win Best Director, it was Sam Mendes and his wartime drama '1917' that won big at the Golden Globes, also taking home the award for Best Motion Picture (Drama) later that night. Perhaps even more surprising, both Scorsese's critically-acclaimed gangster epic 'The Irishman' and Noah Baumbach's lauded 'Marriage Story' lost out on a place on the winner's list, with 'Marriage Story' landing one award (Laura Dern for Best Supporting Actress) and 'The Irishman' ending the night without a single golden statuette to call its own.

Scorsese's 'The Irishman' came home from the Golden Globes empty-handed

Interestingly, streaming titan Netflix also suffered its fair share of snubs during the ceremony, winning a mere two awards (Laura Dern for 'Marriage Story' and Olivia Colman in 'The Crown') despite receiving 34 nominations across both film and television. Could this be a sign that its reign over streamable content is in decline with new platforms such as Apple TV and Disney+ stepping into the spotlight?

Ending the evening on a much more inspirational note were Tom Hanks and Ellen DeGeneres, both of whom took home awards for lifetime achievements in film and television respectively. Though Ricky Gervais raised some eyebrows for criticising celebrities using their allocated acceptance speech time to make political statements, there was not a dry eye in the house after 'Saturday Night Live' alumna Kate Mackinnon thanked DeGeneres for representing the LGBTQ+ community on screen.
