Golden Globes Awards 2024 Summary

The big story of the night at the redesigned Golden Globes Awards 2024, which aired on CBS for the first time, was that everything went largely as expected, with the exception of one or two real surprises.

The program was hosted by first-time presenter Jo Koy and was held at the Beverly Hilton as usual. In his mostly joke-free monologue, he mentioned how Bradley Cooper’s nose from “Maestro” was accidentally constructed out of Barry Keoghan’s penis from “Saltburn,” and he cracked an Ozempic joke with “The Color Purple.” Therefore, the largest snub of the evening could be said to have been the one Koy made for his own career.

Nonetheless, a few significant categories were unexpected, like the one where voters for the Golden Globes Awards appeared to be so intolerant of “Barbie” that we could just hear them exclaim, “Bye, Barbie!”

Golden Globes Awards: “Poor Things” Wins Best Comedy, Beats “Barbie”

Since category fraud frequently occurs in the Musical/Comedy category at the Globes—previous winners include the gut-busters “The Banshees of Inisherin” and “The Martian”—it was a relief to know that “Barbie,” a genuinely funny film that aims to make people laugh, was an absolute lock to win this year. And after that, it lost!

Rather, “Poor Things” pulled off the biggest upset of the evening on a show that rarely pulls off upsets. The movie follows Bella Baxter (Emma Stone, who had won the award for best female actor in a musical or comedy earlier in the evening), a woman whose brain has been replaced with that of an infant, as she comes to terms with her own unique perspective on the world, herself, and her sexuality. In many ways, it is a companion to “Barbie’s” unique explanation of what it means to be a woman in the world, and it is also very funny. Although Stone, who also produced, and filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos are happy about the triumph, “Barbenheimer” devotees and headline writers in the entertainment press felt that the drama and We are so sorry that the comedy that the Globes this year promised has not materialized.

Golden Globes Awards: Barbie Takes Home the New “Popular” Globe from Taylor Swift

The Oscars ran screaming from the idea of celebrating the year’s most popular films in 2018. The Golden Globes Awards responded with a “hold my champagne” and eight film nominations under the newly created “cinematic and box office achievement” category. With $1.4 billion in box office receipts worldwide, “Barbie” is perhaps the most popular film of 2023, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise if it wins this award. However, Taylor Swift received a second nomination for her industry-defining concert film, “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour,” which has taken in $261.6 million globally and is the biggest grossing documentary and concert film ever.

As previously noted, “Barbie” ended up winning a consolation medal since it lost best musical or comedy to “Poor Things,” finishing off a dismal evening for Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie’s smash hit. Even if Taylor Swift isn’t going to win, what use is it to nominate her and invite her to the show? Swift would have been guaranteed a spot on stage by the previous Globes.

Golden Globes Awards : “Anatomy of a Fall” Wins a Screenplay Competition Against “Barbie” and “Oppenheimer”

The bold and creative screenplays written by Greta Gerwig, Noah Baumbach, and Christopher Nolan, respectively, were a major factor in the popularity and praise of “Barbie” and “Oppenheimer.” However, the authors of “Anatomy of a Fall,” a French courtroom thriller about a novelist (nominee Sandra Hüller) on trial for her husband’s death, prevailed over these two enormous contenders. Both co-writer Arthur Harari and director Justine Triet appeared truly shocked by their victory. It might have gained momentum as the film went on to win the Globe for best non-English language picture, which was a predicted victory. Furthermore, even if the Hollywood Foreign International journalists still make up the voting body of the Globes, despite the fact that the press has vanished, Still, this caught me off guard! (And in “Barbie’s” case, a sign of impending rejection.)

Elizabeth Debicki Wins TV Supporting Actress Competition Over Meryl Streep

Elizabeth Debicki may claim, “I beat Meryl!” regardless of anything else that occurs in her career, to paraphrase Jennifer Lawrence from “The First Wives Club.” Indeed, Debicki’s portrayal of the tragic Princess Diana in Netflix’s “The Crown” final season won her the role. It was predicted by oddsmakers that Streep would win the trophy for her performance in Season 3 of “Only Murders in the Building,” and if she didn’t, Hannah Waddingham might have won for her part in Season 3 of “Ted Lasso.”

A fascinating aspect of Debicki’s well-deserved win is that it is the second time a performer has taken home a Golden Globe for the same character. In 2021, Emma Corrin won TV Actress for her portrayal of Diana in Season 4 of “The Crown.”

Golden Globes Awards Ricky Gervais Acquires a New Stand-Up Honor

Ricky Gervais got this prize for his Netflix special “Armageddon,” demonstrating once again that he is a mainstream comedian and is in no way done with the business. Gervais is currently in the period of his career where he mostly makes jokes about how controversial he is. In no way do we imply that Gervais’ five Globe hosting stints—2010, 2011, 2012, 2016, and 2020—put him above the rest of the field in the vote; after all, he defeated apparent front-runner Chris Rock for his own Netflix special, “Selective Outrage.”

For an animated film, “The Boy and the Heron” triumphs over “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.”

Hey, we’re getting a little carried away here. Indeed, “Across the Spider-Verse” was an enormous smash, one of the few popular superhero films of the year, and it received much of the same critical praise as its 2018 predecessor, “Into the Spider-Verse,” which took home the Globe in this category. However, the movie that outperformed “Across the Spider-Verse” was “The Boy and the Heron,” directed by Hayao Miyazaki, an animation veteran who, at the age of 83, stepped out of retirement to work on his most intimate project to date. And when it debuted in December at the top of the domestic box office, it created history.

Even though both of these movies are among the best of the year, we’re still adding the Golden Globes Awards from this year since they were so incredibly predictable.
