The Golden Globes Awards 2019 kicks off the award season for the year. Adam McKay’s Dick Cheney biopic received six nominations, the most nominations for any film this year followed by Yorgos Lanthimos’s The Favourite and Peter Farrelly’s Green Book with five nominations.  Surprisingly, Bohemian Rhapsody and Green Book won big the last Sunday night – Bohemian Rhapsody won Best Picture, Drama, beating the critics darling ‘A Star is Born’ and ‘If Beale Street Could Talk’, Rami Malek took home the trophy for ‘Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture — Drama’ beating Bradley Cooper for ‘A Star is Born’ and Willem Dafoe  for ‘At Eternity’s Gate’.




Bohemian Rhapsody’s wins were unexpected, considering the movie’s mixed reviews and criticism about how it portrayed Queen frontman Freddie Mercury’s queerness. It was also surprising to see Green Book winning Best Picture — Comedy or Musical, Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor (Mahershala Ali). Not so surprisingly and deservingly, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse won The Best Animation Picture Award.




Alfonso Cuaron took home Best Director — Motion Picture for his work on Netflix’s Roma. It is considered as the major contender for the Oscars this year (the film is currently contending as Mexico’s official submission for the foreign language Oscar – at the 91st Academy Awards) and garnering the praise from all the major film festivals, and sitting at the top position of Metacritic as the best-reviewed film with 96 metascore.




Television series like The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, The Bodyguard, Killing Eve, and The Assassination of Gianni Versace all received nominations. Darren Criss won Best Actor in a Limited Series or TV Movie for his celebrated work in The Assassination of Gianni Versace, and The Americanswon Best TV Drama for its final season.
