2018 Golden Globes: the complete list of winners

golden-globe-2018

The 75th annual Golden Globes ceremony marks the unofficial beginning of Hollywood’s awards season, and judging by the evening’s winners, the next few months could hold some unexpected twists. Traditional awards-bait movies like Steven Spielberg’s The Post and Christopher Nolan’s World War II film Dunkirk were poised to win in key categories, but instead, the focus of 2018’s awards was primarily on smaller, independent films.

That feels slightly ironic, since the ceremony opened with a gag where an assistant ran out onstage with her arms full of Golden Globes trophies, supposedly being rushed to The Post. Host Seth Meyers stopped her, saying, “No, not yet, we have to wait.” The Post is clearly still waiting.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri won in the Best Motion Picture, Drama category, earning a total of four awards. Frances McDormand also won best film actress for her work in the film, writer-director Martin McDonagh took home the best screenplay award, and Sam Rockwell won best supporting film actor. Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird was named Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy, with the film’s lead, Saoirse Ronan, also winning for her performance.

On the television side, Amazon Studios was the surprise standout, with its period comedy The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel winning two Golden Globes, including Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy. Series star Rachel Brosnahan also won for best actress in the same category.

Netflix had been nominated for a number of awards, including Best Television Series, Drama nods for Stranger Things and The Crown. However, the service ended up winning just a single award over the course of the night, for Aziz Ansari’s performance in Master of None. Instead, Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale won the top television award, with actress Elisabeth Moss also taking home Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series, Drama.

Ultimately, the night wasn’t as noticeable for any particular awards trend as it was for the vocal social activism on stage. Nearly every speech and presentation over the course of the evening touched on gender discrimination and the recent sexual-abuse testimonies in the entertainment industry. In that sense, the projects that won were perfectly in sync with the tenor of the evening, with many of the awards going toward films and television shows that focus on stories of empowered women and struggles in the face of adversity.
