Golden Globes 2024: Succession and Oppenheimer win big

Oppenheimer won five Golden Globes, including the top prize, making him the big winner.

Christopher Nolan won best director, and Cillian Murphy and Robert Downey Jr. received recognition for their acting efforts.

In the TV categories, Succession took home the most awards after its critically praised fourth and final season.

Barbie, meanwhile, took home the inaugural box office achievement award after bringing in $1.4 billion (£1.13 billion) globally.

Anatomy of a Fall, The Holdovers, and Poor Things each took home two awards, while Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon took home one.

Lily Gladstone, the lead actress in the latter movie, won the best drama actress prize, being the first Native American to do so. She called this “historic.”.

Murphy, who starred in Oppenheimer, praised Nolan’s “rigor, focus, and dedication” in creating the picture, which brought in $954 million (£750 million) at the box office and took home the best drama film award during the ceremony.

In addition, the biography took home honors for best supporting actor for Downey Jr. (who played US government officer Lewis Strauss) and best score.

In his victory speech, Downey Jr. joked, addressing the film’s unexpected box office success, asking, “A sweeping story about the ethical dilemma of nuclear weapons grosses $1bn?”

The actor went on, “Since the summer, a lot of people have approached me and said that I was not at all like Lewis Strauss. Let’s not act as though this is a complement to my fellow nominees.”

In addition, he brought up the modifications made to the Golden Globes roster in the wake of a controversy involving corruption and a dearth of diversity. He thanked the voting group for altering their game.

Murphy, who portrayed J. Robert Oppenheimer in Peaky Blinders as well, is a theoretical physicist who is credited with creating the atomic bomb.

“I knew the first time I walked on Christopher Nolan’s set that it was different,” Murphy remarked in his victory speech. He joked, “I knew I was in the hands of a visionary director by the level of rigor, focus, dedication, and the complete lack of seating options for actors.”

Murphy also made light of the large number of Irish candidates this year for the Oscars; among his other nominees were Barry Keoghan of Saltburn and Andrew Scott of All of Us Strangers.

“To all my fellow nominees, whether you’re Irish or not, you’re all legends; I salute you,” stated Murphy.

Star of Killers of the Flower Moon Lily Gladstone spoke Blackfoot, an Algonquian language, at the start of her acceptance speech. The actress is from the northern Montana Blackfeet Indian Reservation.

“I just spoke a bit of Blackfeet, the beautiful community nation that raised me and encouraged me to keep doing this,” she stated to the crowd.

“I’m here with my mom, who, even though she’s not Blackfeet, worked tirelessly to get Blackfeet into our classroom.” This is a historic prize. I’m really appreciative that I can speak at least a little bit of my native tongue because, in the past, sound mixers would play Native actors’ lines in English and then reverse them to achieve Native languages on camera.”

Gladstone portrays Mollie Burkhart in Killers of the Flower Moon, an Osage lady whose family members are brutally killed as part of a scheme by white settlers driven by oil greed to move in on their property and steal their riches.

Golden Globes Success for Succession

Following the fourth and final season of the drama about a media magnate and his children who fight for control of his firm, Succession emerged as the clear winner in the TV categories.

The best main TV actor went to Kieran Culkin, who played Roman Roy in the series; co-stars Brian Cox and Jeremy Strong had previously taken home this honor.

“About 20 years ago, I was nominated for a Golden Globe, and after that moment passed, I thought, ‘I’ll never be in this room again.'”

“I realized that I would never be performing on this platform. However, Succession is to thank for this pleasant time.

Sarah Snook, his co-star, accepted the award for best leading TV actress and addressed the crowd, “This show has changed my life.”

For his part in the program, British actor Matthew Macfadyen was also awarded Best Supporting Actor. “I just adored every second of playing the human grease stain that is Tom Wambsgans,” said the comedian.

The highly anticipated program was also awarded best drama series, which is thought to be the evening’s biggest honor in the television division.

Barbie took home the cinematic and box office achievement award, which was a newly introduced category this year with the goal of raising awareness of great commercial motion pictures.

Star of the movie Margot Robbie said, “We would like to dedicate it to every single person on the planet who dressed up and went to the greatest place on earth—the movie theaters.”

“And kudos to the Golden Globes for inventing an award that honors film enthusiasts. This is a human-centered film as much as a Barbie film. We created it with love just for you, and we are grateful that you returned the favor.”

Of the three songs from the movie’s soundtrack that were nominated, Billie Eilish’s “What Was I Made For?” took up the best original song award.

“It was exactly a year ago when I was shown the movie, and I was very miserable and depressed at the time, and writing that song kind of saved me a little bit,” said Eilish.

Da’Vine For her portrayal of a mother experiencing extreme grief following the death of her son in The Holdovers, Joy Randolph was awarded best supporting actress.

Saying to the role she portrays, “Mary, you have changed my life; you have made me feel seen in so many ways,” “And I hope I helped you all find your inner Mary, because there is a little bit of her in all of us.”

In Golden Globes Her words to Alexander Payne, the film’s director, were, “Thank you for giving me the opportunity to play this beautiful and flawed woman.”

Paul Giamatti, her co-star, won the award for outstanding leading actor in a drama. He portrays a teacher who is compelled to spend Christmas at his boarding school in order to care for the students who aren’t going home.

He quipped that his “knees were shot” as he ascended the steps to the platform to accept the trophy, adding, “At this rate, I’m never going to be in John Wick 5.”

“Alexander the Great, who for some mysterious reason continues to have enormous faith in me, and I don’t know why,” was how he described Payne in his homage to him.

“[The Holdovers] is a movie about a teacher,” Giamatti said in closing. My entire family, spanning several generations, consists of educators. This also applies to teachers since they are decent people who deserve your respect because they work very hard at what they do.”

The best screenplay and best foreign language picture went to the courtroom drama Anatomy of a Fall. The film’s director, Justine Triet, reminisced about working with her boyfriend, Arthur Harari, on the script while under lockdown.

“We were in the pandemic,” she said, “and my life partner and I spent our days co-writing the screenplay for Anatomy of a Fall, stuck in our apartment—and strangely, nobody died.”

Ayo Edebiri and Jeremy Allen White of The Bear, as well as Steven Yeun and Ali Wong, who were also honored for their roles in Beef, are other winners in the TV categories.

In other news, Elizabeth Debicki won the Best Supporting Actress Award for her work on The Crown as Princess Diana. She said “thank you” to the show’s producers “for believing in me for this role.”

“Pretend children” Ed McVey and Luther Ford, who portray Prince William and Prince Harry in the show, respectively, were thanked by her.

For her role in Poor Things, which also won best musical or comedy picture, Emma Stone was nominated for best actress in a musical or comedy.

In the film Poor Things, Stone portrays Bella Baxter, a young lady who embarks on an international voyage of self-discovery and sexual awakening.

In her victory speech, Stone stated, “Bella falls in love with life itself rather than a person; she accepts the good and bad in equal measure.”

And realizing that everything matters changed the way I saw life. This means the world to me since she has stuck with me so deeply.”

She expressed her gratitude to writer Tony McNamara and director Yorgos Lanthimos, joking, “I love getting to say this dialogue, and I love getting to horrify you with my Australian accent.” She said she will “forever be grateful that we met.”

The Oscars take place on March 10 and are the biggest event of the film awards season after the Golden Globes.
