2024 Golden Globes: The full winners list and highlights

On 7 January, the Beverly Hilton hosted the Golden Globe Awards, which honoured and celebrated the best in television and film in the past year. As A-listers stunned on the red carpet, there was a palpable buzz of excitement in the air—after all, 2023 gave birth to one of cinema’s biggest pop culture events, Barbenheimer, as well as an array of standout films that gained critical acclaim in film festival circuits.

Both Barbie and Oppenheimer were the fan favourites to win at the 81st Golden Globes, coming in with nine and eight nominations respectively—the most compared to other films in the rally. However, it was Oppenheimer who proved victorious in this round of film awards as the Nolan-directed biopic took home five trophies, including Best Actor, Best Director and Best Supporting Actor.

That isn’t to say Barbie walked away empty-handed. The pink-tinged film was awarded Golden Globes’ first Cinematic and Box Office Achievement and Billie Eilish’s What Was I Made For took home the trophy for Best Original Song. However, it was Poor Things that bested the film in the Best Motion Picture in Musical or Comedy category in a surprise victory. 

Matthew MacFayden, Sarah Snook and Kieran Culkin win for their performance in ‘Succession.’

On the TV side of things, HBO’s Succession came into the night with nine nominations, the most for any TV series, and swept up the awards. Main stars Kieran Culkin, Saran Snook and Matthew MacFayden took home trophies for their performance in the critically acclaimed series. The Bear and Netflix’s Beef were also big winners of the night.

Cillian Murphy wins his first Golden Globe for Oppenheimer

For fans who have been following the Irish actor for many years now, this win has been a long time coming. At the awards show, Murphy finally won his first Golden Globe for Best Actor in his titular role as J. Robert Oppenheimer. To win, the actor beat out the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio in Killers of the Flower Moon and Bradley Cooper in Maestro.

 

Lily Gladstone makes history as the first indigenous winner of Best Actress

Winning Best Actress in a Motion Picture for her performance in Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon, Lily Gladstone made history as the first indigenous person to take home an award in that category. As a member of the Blackfeet Tribe, Gladstone paid tribute to her indigenous community by speaking in her tribe’s native language. This is a historic one and it doesn’t belong to just me, the 37-year-old shares.

 

Poor Things comes out on top at the Golden Globes 

Proving to be a hit amongst the crowds and critics ever since its premiere at the Venice Film Festival in September 2023, Poor Things nabbed a surprise victory for Best Motion Picture in a Musical or Comedy, edging out over the heavy favourite, Barbie. For the film, Emma Stone also won her second Golden Globe for Best Actress as a Victorian-era woman who is brought back to life with the brain of a fetus. 

 

Barbie wins the Golden Globes’ first Cinematic and Box Office Achievement Award

In a Golden Globes first, the awards show introduced a new category called the Cinematic and Box Office Achievement, which celebrates films that garnered outstanding box office success. To qualify for the award, a movie must make over $150 million at the global box office and at least $100 million domestically. Out of the nominees, Barbie was the clear winner as the film raked in more than $1.4 billion globally and is Warner Bros’ highest-grossing film to date.

Speaking of making history, the night was made even more special due to the landmark wins by Steven Yeun and Ali Wong. Both stars took home golden statuettes for Best Actress and Best Actor in a Limited Series, which marks the first time actors of Asian descent won in these categories. The road rage drama which premiered on Netflix in April 2023 quickly garnered critical acclaim and became career-defining performances for Wong and Yeun. 

 

The Bear devours the Golden Globes 

Everyone say, “Yes, chef!” The hit FX series had five nominations going into the night and walked away with three golden trophies, including Best TV Comedy which beat out popular choices such as Ted Lasso and Abbott Elementary. Further, Jeremy Allen White had a repeat win by nabbing Best Actor whilst Ayo Edebiri won her first Golden Globe for Best Actress in the grubby cooking series. 

 

Timothee Chalamet and Kylie Jenner stir up the internet 

Apart from the winners on stage, the night was also filled with reunions and romantic dates! Specifically, Timothee Chalamet brought girlfriend Kylie Jenner along and the lovely couple even shared a quick smooch that was caught on camera. The display of affection caused a stir online as seen by some of these hilarious reactions on X:
