Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines because the 2024 awards season has officially begun after the winners were announced for the 81st annual Golden Globe Awards. And guess what? We’re in it and covering every single moment of the season. Make sure you’re subscribed to the For the Culture newsletter and the Parting Shot podcast for the type of awards coverage you won’t get anywhere else.

Now, if you’re unfamiliar with the Golden Globes, what makes the Globes unique is that they combine television and film. They also added two new categories this year, TV stand-up comedy performance and an award for cinematic and box office achievement.

Host Jo Koy started things off by admitting he had gotten the gig only 10 days ago, and frankly, it showed. But I cut him some slack because it’s one of the hardest hosting jobs in Hollywood. Not only do you have to entertain a room full of celebrities—who probably don’t have the best funny bone—but they’re also drinking. Not a good recipe. But he did fine. (Well, fine might be too strong a word for how he did. Uh…he did his best.)

The first plot twist of the night was Robert Downey Jr. winning Best Supporting Actor for Oppenheimer. The buzz going into Sunday night was fully for Charles Melton for May December, but in the end, Hollywood golden boy Downey Jr. took him the Golden Globe. (And listen, I’m not a fan of “career” awards, you know the type, the award won by actors because it’s their time, but you have to admit it really is Downey Jr.’s time. Just sayin.)

Did you notice how they got rid of showing scenes from the nominated films and shows? Clearly this was a way to save time, and honestly I’m here for it. They also combined categories, so in many situations, presenters are presenting for both the male and female categories. I like all of this.

The big question of the night was how well Barbie and Oppenheimer would perform. Well, Oppenheimer had a great night, winning all the major awards including Best Picture – Drama, Best Director for Christopher Nolan, Best Actor – Drama Cillian Murphy, and Best Supporting Actor for Robert Downey Jr. Barbie, however, underperformed, losing Best Picture – Musical/Comedy to Poor Things, Best Actress in a Musical/Comedy to Emma Stone for Poor Things, Screenplay to Anatomy of a Fall, and Director to Nolan for Oppenheimer. That said, it still won Best Original Song for the Billie Eilish song “What Was I Made For?” and the new award of the night Cinematic & Box Office Achievement.

Before the Globes, it was a toss-up as to who would take home Best Actor – Drama, Cillian Murphy for Oppenheimer or Bradley Cooper for Maestro. Well, Murphy’s win puts him squarely in the lead for the Best Actor Oscar.

Other than that, the night went off as expected, with Oppenheimer, Succession, The Bear and Beef winning the major prizes throughout the night.

Oh wait, the other news to come out of the night had nothing to do with the Golden Globes. Who was seen looking very close (and very together) in the audience? None other than Timothée Chalamet and Kylie Jenner. Oh Hollywood, ain’t it crazy?

Below is the full list of winners.
