Golden Globes 2024 highlights: Taylor Swift reacts to Jo Koy, 'Succession' wins big and 'Beef' makes history

Awards season kicked off Sunday with the 81st annual Golden Globes ceremony on CBS, which surprisingly wrapped on time.

Here’s what happened at the 2024 Golden Globes:

  • "Oppenheimer" was the big winner of the night, picking up five marquee awards, including best motion picture (drama) and best director for Christopher Nolan. "Barbie," the second half of the summertime cultural phenom known as "Barbenheimer," turned in a solid showing, too, nabbing two awards, including best original song.
  • In the film acting races, Globes were handed out to Cillian Murphy ("Oppenheimer"), Lily Gladstone ("Killers of the Flower Moon"), Paul Giamatti ("The Holdovers"), Emma Stone ("Poor Things"), Robert Downey Jr. ("Oppenheimer") and Da'Vine Joy Randolph ("The Holdovers").
  • "Succession," "The Bear" and "Beef" dominated the television categories. "Succession," HBO's corporate saga, nabbed four awards; "The Bear" and "Beef" each notched three. "Beef," which stars actor Steven Yeun and comedian Ali Wong, made history by becoming the first show created by and starring Asian Americans to win in its category.
  • The host was stand-up comedian Jo Koy, whose monologue didn't seem to excite the crowd. Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig got big laughs for a bit involving hokey music, and Oprah appeared at the end of the night to present the final award.

The night's biggest surprises

'Poor Things' beats 'Barbie'

I expected Greta Gerwig's "Barbie" to conquer the best comedy film category, but Globes voters ultimately went with the offbeat "Poor Things." However, it's worth noting that sometimes Globes voters go in a more highbrow direction in this category. Last year, for example, the dour "The Banshees of Inisherin" beat the exuberant "Everything Everywhere All at Once."

'Anatomy of a Fall' wins screenplay prize

The script for the French legal drama "Anatomy of a Fall" is excellent — intelligent and suffused with dread. Still, I expected the best screenplay award to go to Gerwig and Noah Baumbach for "Barbie" or Christopher Nolan for "Oppenheimer." Gerwig and Baumbach's cheeky dialogue is key to the movie's appeal, and Nolan's script is a structural marvel. The triumph of "Anatomy" suggests the movie has legs going into Oscar balloting.

Elizabeth Debicki wins for 'The Crown'

Elizabeth Debicki was one of the highlights of the final two seasons of Netflix's "The Crown" as the doomed Diana, Princess of Wales, delivering one of the show's most sensitive performances. But lots of awards prognosticators expected this prize to go to Meryl Streep, for "Only Murders in the Building," or Hannah Waddingham, for the final season of "Ted Lasso."

Charles Melton leaves empty-handed

"May December" co-star Charles Melton seemed to have a lot of momentum in the best supporting actor category heading into the show after picking up a string of equivalent honors from critics groups, but Robert Downey Jr. ultimately prevailed for his portrayal of Lewis Strauss in "Oppenheimer." It's possible RDJ's win has blunted Melton's momentum, but maybe the former "Riverdale" star will surprise us on Oscars night.

That's a wrap in the press room!

After a long night at the first major awards show of the year, the press room is winding down at the Golden Globes. While the celebs are headed to after-parties, we are gladly heading home and straight to bed.

Emma Stone shares her reaction to Taylor Swift encouragement

Emma Stone said her "Poor Things" character, Bella Baxter, was “unlike anything" else she's played or seen.

“It was about unlearning things more than tapping into things from my past, which was very beautiful and very freeing,” Stone said in the press room after the show wrapped. “Restarting from scratch was a very exciting part of Bella.”

When a reporter asked about Taylor Swift’s enthusiastically cheering her win, Stone joked: “What an a------, am I right?”

“I’ve known her for almost 20 years, so I was very happy she was there,” Stone added.

Glen Powell responds to being mixed up with Justin Hartley

After The Hollywood Reporter misidentified actor Justin Hartley as Glen Powell in a post on X, Powell responded in the most unserious way.

"I think this is the perfect time to announce that ⁦@justinhartley⁩ and I will be starring in the most boring body-swap movie of all time," he wrote on X.

TBH we're dying to see that flick.

Lily Gladstone says parents always supported her dreams

After a history-making Golden Globes win, Lily Gladstone delivered a heartfelt tribute to her mother — whom she brought to the show tonight. 

She knows that succeeding in the entertainment industry “doesn’t happen for everybody,” she said, but her parents never wavered in their support of her career pursuits.

“So every time I’ve felt a level of guilt or felt like it wasn’t possible,” Gladstone said, “my mom and my dad never questioned that this was what I was meant to do.”

Nolan on the 'tragedy' at the center of 'Oppenheimer'

"Oppenheimer" director Christopher Nolan told reporters at a post-Globes news conference that he was drawn to J. Robert Oppenheimer because of what he described as the "tragedy" at the heart of his life story.

The film portrays Oppenheimer's development of the atomic bomb that was dropped on Japan during World War II and chronicles the period when the famed physicist was essentially excommunicated from American power.

"He always maintained his loyalty to his country, what he needed to do," Nolan said. (The movie notably does not depict the deaths caused by Oppenheimer's weapon of war.)

Cillian Murphy, who portrays Oppenheimer and won a Globe for his performance, said: "I think he was complex and contradictory and brilliant and arrogant and vain, and a genius."

Christopher Nolan did not ride the Peloton today

Director Christopher Nolan isn't breaking up with his Peloton just yet.

The Golden Globe-winning director made headlines after he revealed that he'd taken a 2020 Peloton ride in which instructor Jenn Sherman complained about his movie "Tenet." She has since responded, saying she's actually a big fan of "Oppenheimer."

Asked about that in the press room, Nolan laughed.

"Nothing but love for the Peloton, but I did not climb on it today," he said.

He said he did think he'd "skip it for a while ... but thank you for your concern," he told reporters.

ICYMI: Ali Wong made history. Watch the video here:

Paul Giamatti gushes about his favorite horror movie, 'The Texas Chain Saw Massacre'

Though Paul Giamatti scored a win this year in the musical or comedy category, he raved about his appreciation for horror movies, particularly “The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.”

“I’ve always loved horror movies from the time I was a little kid,” he told reporters after the awards show. “When you're little like that, a horror movie goes really deep.”

No drama at the Globes

Viewers have come to expect controversial or political comments from some of the attendees at the Golden Globes, long known as the booziest and most festive awards show.

That didn't happen this year. The show remained uneventful when it came to unpredictable drama.

Celebrities in the past have also used the show to take stances on political issues ... but that also didn't happen this year.

Elizabeth Debicki researched so much into Princess Diana that she hoped to channel her ‘through osmosis’

Elizabeth Debicki did a “tremendous amount of research” preparing to play Princess Diana in “The Crown,” she told reporters after her first Golden Globes win.

Aside from watching a lot of footage, she also worked with a dialect and movement coach. The more time she spent researching Diana, she hoped, the more she might be able absorb her nuances through some sort of osmosis.

If she could relate to any part of the late princess’ life, Debicki said, it would be “a combination of the isolation and the emergence from it, the desire to recreate the self and to control the narrative of one’s life.”

“I’ve learned a lot from playing this part, the courage that takes and the kind of inherent beauty in that life path,” she added.

Post-show: Winners grace press room

The show may have come to an end, but some winners are still making their way to the press room to answer questions from the media.

Up right now: Matthew Macfadyen, who won for his role as Tom in "Succession."

That's a wrap!

Big night for "Oppenheimer," "Barbie," "Succession," "The Bear," "Beef," painfully awkward scripted presenter banter and abrupt music cues. We hope you enjoyed our liveblog. Join us soon for more awards season coverage.

'Oppenheimer' wins best motion picture (drama)

Christopher Nolan's smash hit "Oppenheimer" has won the Golden Globe for best motion picture (drama), cementing it as the front-runner for best picture at the Oscars.

The movie really cleaned up tonight — the top prize, plus best director, best actor in a drama (Cillian Murphy), best supporting actor (Robert Downey Jr.) and best original score (Ludwig Göransson).

Lily Gladstone was considering quitting acting before 'Killers'

It’s amazing to think that Gladstone was considering leaving acting altogether when Martin Scorsese came calling and offered her a key role in his adaptation of David Grann’s bestselling book.

She’s absolutely magnetic as the seemingly all-seeing Osage woman Mollie Kyle and the emotional heart of the film by a mile. I hope this win opens up tons of opportunities for Gladstone. (If you’re interested in her earlier film work, check out Kelly Reichardt’s “Certain Women.”)

Lily Gladstone makes history with win as best actress in a motion picture, drama

Lily Gladstone has made history as the first Indigenous winner in her category of best performance by a female actor in a motion picture.

Gladstone took home the award for her graceful portrayal of Mollie in “Killers of the Flower Moon.”

“I don’t have words. I just spoke a bit of Blackfeet language. A beautiful community that raised me,” an emotional Gladstone told the audience.

She continued: "This is a historic win. It doesn't belong to just me. I'm holding it for all my sisters. ... This is for every little rez kid."

While Gladstone’s performance was critically acclaimed, the film, a Martin Scorsese-directed crime drama that delves into the serial murder of members of Osage Nation known as the Reign of Terror, divided Indigenous audiences. Many critics felt the film did not successfully scrutinize the federal government’s oppression of Indigenous people. And others, including Devery Jacobs of “Reservation Dogs,” felt it normalized violence toward Indigenous communities. 

Given the sensitive nature of the material, Gladstone encouraged community members to view the film “when and only if you feel ready.” 

“The most pressing thing I’ve wanted to say about Killers of the Flower Moon, especially to Native Women & Youth: See it when and only if you feel ready, and see it with people you feel safe with,” Gladstone wrote on social media when the film opened in October. “You’ll likely have a lot of generational grief to process. You’re not alone.”

Shocked! The entire room is left stunned for Lily Gladstone after her win for “Killers of the Flower Moon.” With the audience looking at each other with mouths open!

Shut out tonight: 'Air,' 'American Fiction,' 'May December'

No wins tonight for three of the musical/comedy contenders: Ben Affleck's "Air," Cord Jefferson's "American Fiction" and Todd Haynes' "May December."

'Poor Things' wins best motion picture (comedy)

Yorgos Lanthimos' surrealist fable "Poor Things" just won the Globe for best motion picture (comedy), a slightly highbrow alternative to the movie I thought would claim this category: "Barbie."

This is the second award for "Poor Things" tonight. Emma Stone earlier won the best actress (comedy) prize for her lead role as Bella Baxter.

Paul Giamatti dedicates his win to teachers

Paul Giamatti took home the Golden Globe for best actor in a motion picture, musical or comedy for his leading role as curmudgeonly instructor Paul Hunham in “The Holdovers.”

"It's a movie about a teacher. I played a teacher, and my whole family, they're teachers. All going back generations. Teachers are good people," Giamatti said. "They do a good thing. It's a tough job. So this is for teachers."

‘Beef’ director says road rage incident that inspired the show was ‘anticlimactic’

After thanking the road rage driver who inspired “Beef” in his acceptance speech, director Lee Sung Jin told reporters that the moment was actually pretty “anticlimactic.”

“There was just one moment where I was like, eh, I’m gonna follow you,” he said, but it didn’t lead to anything — aside from a Golden Globe-winning TV miniseries.

Where is the Golden Globes host?

Am I the only one who keeps forgetting someone is hosting the Globes tonight?

I'm reminded Jo Koy is hosting when he suddenly appears to deliver a one-liner or wish happy birthday to Nicolas Cage.

But it seems like others on social media are wondering "did they get rid of the host in the middle of the golden globes," one X user said.

I feel like we've barely seen him following his monologue at the beginning of the awards ceremony.







Simu Liu and Issa Rae joke about aspiring for 'white people roles'

Simu Liu and Issa Rae, who were featured in "Barbie" as a Ken and a Barbie, respectively, joked about finally getting to play "white people roles."

"We may not have been what first popped up in people's minds when they thought of Barbie or Ken, but that's changed, and we're going to continue to push the boundaries and the roles you can play," Rae said.

Liu added: "And by that, of course, we mean white people roles."

The pair offered up characters like "alcoholic divorced single father fighting for custody" and "alcoholic housewife whose husband's affair drives her deeper into alcoholism."

LOL.

‘Succession’ wins best TV drama series

To no one’s surprise, “Succession” scored its third Golden Globe win for best television series (drama).

The acclaimed show about a dysfunctional American global media family beat other highly talked about series such as “The Crown,” “The Last of Us” and “The Morning Show.”

Long live the Roy family.

None of the "Succession" winners have come to the press room yet, but I'm hoping with this major win they will have to.

Overwhelming support for the show here in the ballroom, with everyone giving it a standing ovation. It seems like everyone is happy for its win.

At last, Shiv wins! Well, to be more precise: Sarah Snook has won best actress in a drama series for her performance on the final season of HBO's "Succession."

Big night for the era-defining show: Snook, Kieran Culkin, Matthew Macfadyen. Few things are certain in this crazy world, but it seems likely this show will win best drama series sometime in the next 30 minutes.

Big night for power couple Shiv and Tom!

'Beef' takes home third Golden Globe

"Beef" won the Golden Globe for best television limited series.

The A24-produced comedy-drama, which stars actor Steven Yeun and comedian Ali Wong, made history by becoming the first show created by and starring Asian Americans to win in its category.

“Our show is actually based on a real road rage incident that actually happened to me, so I’d be remiss not to thank that driver,” creator Lee Sung Jin joked while accepting the award. “Sir, I hope you honk and yell and inspire others for years to come.”

'The Bear' wins for best TV comedy

FX's "The Bear" is cleaning up tonight! The acclaimed series just won the award for best television comedy.

Disclosure: I have yet to see "The Bear," making me an outcast among my peers in the media industry. However, I plan to rectify this character flaw very soon.

Cool win that almost certainly won't happen

I think it's safe to say the most unlikely win tonight would be Joaquin Phoenix for his nerve-jangling title role in Ari Aster's "Beau Is Afraid," an aggressively weird movie about a chronically anxious city dweller who risks life and limb to visit his overbearing mother's house.

Paul Giamatti ("The Holdovers") and Jeffrey Wright ("American Fiction") are the front-runners in Phoenix's category — and don't get me wrong, I think Giamatti and Wright are brilliant actors. Phoenix's work in "Beau" was fearless, though, and I'm glad he was at least nominated tonight.

'Barbie' beats Taylor Swift in new award category at Globes

Hi, Barbie!

Did you hear? The “Barbie” movie just won the inaugural cinematic and box office achievement award.

After making $1.4 billion worldwide, the film broke many records. It became the highest-grossing film in Warner Bros. history, the highest-grossing film ever by a female filmmaker at the domestic box office and the biggest film release worldwide in 2023.

This is the movie’s second award of the night.

"Barbie" star and producer Margot Robbie thanked all the fans who dressed up in pink to watch the movie in theaters.

"We made it with love and thank you for loving it back," she said.

"Barbie" beat fellow nominee “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour,” which just became the highest-grossing concert film ever, replacing 2009’s “Michael Jackson’s This Is It.” 

Actor Mark Hamill presented the award.

Inside the ballroom, when "Barbie" won, Taylor Swift was the first to jump up and applaud. She was dancing in her seat before the win was announced.

Jeremy Allen White knows everyone is thirsting after the Calvin Klein ad

After his big win, "The Bear" star Jeremy Allen White addressed that viral Calvin Klein ad. A reporter specifically asked whether it's "weird" that people are talking about his six-pack rather than his performances.

"It’s strange," he replied. "It’s been a weird couple of days. It is bizarre doing a Calvin Klein ad, and now it is more bizarre having it come out ... but everything feels OK for now."

‘Barbie’ scores first win of the night

The highly emotional song “What Was I Made For?” by Billie Eilish and Finneas O’Connell from the “Barbie” movie soundtrack won best original song.

This is the second time the brother and sister duo have won in this category.

"Writing that song kind of saved me a little bit," Eilish said.

“Barbie” was the most nominated film of the night but had not scored a win until now.

Two other “Barbie” songs were also nominated in this category: “I’m Just Ken” and “Dance the Night.”

Billie Eilish seems like a contender for an EGOT one day.

No offense to the "Barbie" folks but HOW in the h-e-double hockey sticks did "Peaches" not win? Composer Brian Roberts made magic. Jack Black gave the performance of a lifetime. I demand a redo, just as Bowser probably would.

Michelle Yeoh lovingly referred to her viral 'shut up' comment from last year

Michelle Yeoh, who presented the award for best actress in a motion picture, musical or comedy alongside Naomi Watts, gave a little shoutout to her viral moment at the Globes last year.

Yeoh, who took home a 2023 Golden Globe for best actress for her performance in "Everything Everywhere All At Once," ordered the exit music to stop playing after it interrupted her speech.  

“Shut up, please. I can beat you up, OK? And I’m serious,” Yeoh said, laughing, before continuing. 

This time around, Yeoh joked that she had chilled out.

"I threatened to beat up the piano player if they played me off my acceptance speech," Yeoh said. "You will be happy to know that I am very chill this year."

Have you been listening to the 'Oppenheimer' score at your desk at work for six months? I have!

Happy to see recognition for Ludwig Göransson, the composer behind the propulsive and dizzying score for "Oppenheimer," the little summer biopic that could.

Emma Stone wins best performance by an actress in a motion picture, musical or comedy

Emma Stone won the Golden Globe for best performance by an actress in a motion picture, musical or comedy for her portrayal of Bella Baxter in "Poor Things."

“Playing Bella was unbelievable. I see this as a rom-com, in the sense of Bella falls in love with life itself rather than a person, and she accepts the good and the bad in equal measure, and that really made me look at life differently, and all of it counts, and all of it is important," Stone told the crowd. "She has stayed with me deeply.” 

The accolade is Stone's second Golden Globe win and eighth nomination.

Foreshadowing for the Oscars? Reporters and guests inside the show are saying Emma Stone’s win is a good prediction for what will happen at this year’s Oscars.

Filming 'The Bear' made Ayo Edebiri love Chicago

Ayo Edebiri bantered with reporters in the press room after taking home her award for “The Bear.” In filming the show, Edebiri said, she realized how much Chicago reminded her of her home city, Boston.

The people there are just “real people,” she said, adding that she also appreciates Chicago’s food scene.

Justine Triet kept Sandra's potential guilt in 'Anatomy of a Fall' ambiguous on purpose

Taking home two awards for “Anatomy of a Fall,” director Justine Triet told reporters that she didn’t want the film’s actors to know definitively whether Sandra killed her husband or not. The ambiguity is intentional, she said.

“Maybe she didn’t kill him,” Triet said, “but she could’ve pushed him to commit suicide.”

'The Boy and the Heron' wins best animated motion picture

"The Boy and the Heron" took home the Golden Globe for best animated motion picture.

The film, from Japanese anime icon Hayao Miyazaki, follows 12-year-old Mahito Maki, who, while grieving his mother's death, is set on a life-changing path after speaking to a heron.

The producers couldn't make it, so presenters Florence Pugh and Natalie Portman accepted the award on their behalf.

Nothing yet for 'Barbie' or 'Killers of the Flower Moon'

"Barbie" went into the night as the most-nominated film, and "Killers of the Flower Moon" is a major critical favorite, but so far neither has won an award tonight.

I'm sure that'll change over the next hour, however. "Barbie" seems like a safe bet for best comedy/musical film, and Lily Gladstone could win in the best actress (drama) race.

No big surprise but still exciting for the "Oppenheimer" heads out there: Christopher Nolan just won the best director Globe for his three-hour atomic age epic.

Nolan is widely considered one of the signature American filmmakers of the 21st century, but he's never won a Golden Globe (or an Academy Award, for that matter). He's a safe bet for the equivalent award at this year's Oscars, I'd say.

The other nominees in this category tonight: Bradley Cooper ("Maestro"), Greta Gerwig ("Barbie"), Yorgos Lanthimos  ("Poor Things"), Martin Scorsese ("Killers of the Flower Moon") and Celine Song ("Past Lives").

<Insert clever expletive> Kieran Culkin wins for 'Succession'

Kieran Culkin just won the Globe for lead actor on a drama series for HBO's dearly departed "Succession."

I think Culkin richly deserves the award after delivering what was probably the most complex and emotionally wrenching performance during the final season. But he definitely wasn't a lock going into the night, especially since he was up against co-stars Jeremy Strong and Brian Cox.

In his speech, Culkin said this was a "nice moment" because he never expected to be up on the Globes stage.

20 years ago he received his first Globes nomination for "Igby Goes Down", Culkin said after that day he never thought he’d be back here.

Did Kevin Costner just quote 'Barbie'?

Kevin Costner recited a brief part of America Ferrera's now iconic "Barbie" monologue in which she explains "it's impossible to be a woman," he said.

The pair gushed over Ferrera's speech while presenting an award for best actress in a TV comedy.

Costner appears to be making a deadly earnest statement in the form of bone-dry sarcasm?

"Anatomy of a Fall," a tense and absorbing drama about a novelist put on trial for her husband's death, wins the Globe for best non-English language film — though it's worth noting that much of the film is in English!

The film drew critical raves last year, and it won the coveted Palme d'Or at Cannes, so I'm not surprised that it triumphed in this category. I expect it'll win the equivalent award at the Oscars.

I am SO shook that "Past Lives" didn't win. It was such an emotional, flawless film. It deserves all the awards.

"Past Lives" may not have won this category, but it still wins my heart. Greta Lee and Celine Song still have opportunities to take home a win, though.

But also so bizarre that "Past Lives" was even nominated in this category since so much — if not most — of the movie is in English!

Jim Gaffigan jokes while presenting new stand-up comedy award

The stand-up comedian presented the inaugural award with ... you guessed it, jokes.

"For 80 years, good-looking people were invited to throw a party, and now you have decided to invite the talented people," Gaffigan said on the Golden Globes stage.

"I can’t even believe I’m in the entertainment industry," he also remarked. "It’s so unlikely — I’m from a small town in Indiana; I’m not a pedophile."

Winner of the Golden Globes' first stand-up comedy award is Ricky Gervais

Ricky Gervais won the award for best performance in a stand-up comedy or television for his special "Armageddon."

The win makes Gervais the first to take home the award in the ceremony's 81-year history.

Gervais wasn't able to make it; Jim Gaffigan, who presented the category, accepted it on his behalf.

Daniel Kaluuya, Hailee Steinfeld and Shameik Moore roast AI

Daniel Kaluuya, Hailee Steinfeld and Shameik Moore presented the award for best screenplay by poking fun at studio execs who've advocated for the use of artificial intelligence in screenwriting.

"I am enjoy the Golden Globs," Steinfeld quipped.

We do, too, Hailee. We do, too.

Jeremy Allen White wins best actor in a comedy series

Yes, chef!

Jeremy Allen White, the lead of "The Bear," took home the win for a show that's made us all overly obsessed with restaurant culture.

Confession: I still haven't seen "The Bear." (I know, I know.) But it's high on my list of 2024 cultural priorities.

Ali Wong and Steven Yeun chat with reporters after 'Beef' double win

Following a double win for “Beef,” Ali Wong told reporters it was “everything” to see Steven Yeun win his category right after her.

“I just screamed, and I had a really ugly face when I screamed, because I was just so surprised,” Wong said. “We worked really hard on the show, and I’m really proud of it.”

She added that she’ll keep her trophy somewhere safe and out of reach of her “two little children.”

Meanwhile, Yeun told reporters that his driving habits haven’t changed much since he starred in the show.

“I’m a respectful but skillful and at times aggressive driver,” Yeun said. “I live in L.A., so I drive the same, not that different from Danny — that’s not illegal.”

"Anatomy of a Fall" just won the Globe for best screenplay, and I'd call this one the first real upset of the night. I was sure the prize would go to the team of Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach for "Barbie" or Christopher Nolan for "Oppenheimer."

But that having been said, the script for "Anatomy of a Fall" is excellent, filled with dread and psychological ambiguity. It was written by the husband-and-wife duo Justine Triet and Arthur Harari.

Social media users didn't seem to like Jo Koy’s Taylor Swift joke

Swifties and social media users seemed equally unamused by Jo Koy's joke poking fun at the pop star.

Early on in the show, Koy said: “The big difference between the Golden Globes and the NFL? At the Golden Globes, we have fewer camera shots of Taylor Swift.”

Swift was seen on camera taking a sip of her drink following the joke. Social media users, many who identified as Swifites, seemed to take note of her response.

Yet another big career win for Tom “Pain Sponge” Wambsgans!

Matthew Macfadyen just won for his supporting role on HBO's "Succession" as the conniving, neurotic, unctuous but ultimately victorious corporate ladder-climber Tom Wambsgans.

"I just adored every second playing the weird and wonderful human grease stain" known as Tom, Macfadyen said in his speech.

Da’Vine Joy Randolph reveals why she resonated with her 'The Holdovers' character

Just after getting the first win of the night, Da’Vine Joy Randolph told reporters that she resonated with Mary for the character's "authenticity, her fight, her will to conquer." She said it's an exciting moment to be at the Golden Globes after a pandemic and two strikes.

"The beauty is that all the time that I’ve poured into my craft, all the sleepless nights that I've stayed up trying to figure out how I can contribute to this industry, how I can do it as a woman of color, how I can tell these women's stories — that people have this moment and an opportunity to see it and acknowledge it," she said.

Elizabeth Debicki wins a Globe for her supporting performance on Netflix's "The Crown" as Diana, Princess of Wales. Debicki was one of the highlights of the final two seasons of the series, though some prognosticators thought the award would go to J. Smith-Cameron ("Succession") or Hannah Waddingham ("Ted Lasso").

P.S. Saba Hamedy and I teamed up a few years ago for this article about Diana's pop culture legacy.

Everyone will always love Princess Di.

The show so far is rather <thinking face emoji>

Look, I watch all these award shows start to finish, but I must admit the first ~30 minutes of the Globes were fairly tepid — at least on this side of the television screen. Jo Koy's monologue didn't seem to land with the audience, and the announcer's patter sounds dated. Great to see early wins for "Beef" and Da'Vine Joy Randolph, though.

'Beef’ wins back to back awards

Shortly after his "Beef" co-star Ali Wong took home a Golden Globe, Steven Yeun won the award for best male actor in a limited series for his role as high-strung contractor Danny.

Yeun took a moment to let it all sink in.

“So weird the story I usually tell ... to myself is one of isolation and separateness, and then you come up here and you have this moment and you can only think about everyone else. That feels like the plot of 'Frozen,'” he said. “Shout out to my daughter, Ruthie.”

Ali Wong makes history for best actress in a limited series

Ali Wong became the first Asian American to take home a win for best actress in a limited series for her role in "Beef."

Wong, who starred as successful-yet-unfulfilled business owner Amy, thanked Justin Hakuta, her ex-husband and father of her children, in an emotional speech.

"I really need to thank the father of my children and my best friend, Justin, for all of your love and support," Wong said as she accepted the award. "It’s because of you I’m able to be a working mother."

Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez reunite at the awards

Taylor Swift and her BFF Selena Gomez found each other during a commercial break and were chatting, laughing and taking photos.

RDJ won tonight, but don't count out Charles Melton at the Oscars

Robert Downey Jr. beat out the likes of Charles Melton ("May December") and Ryan Gosling ("Barbie") in the supporting actor category, but I'm not sure I'm ready to call RDJ a shoo-in for the Oscar.

Melton, who has earned wide acclaim for his role as a 30-something father whose wife seduced him when he was just a teen, has been getting a lot of recognition from other groups, including the National Society of Film Critics.

It's possible RDJ's win tonight will slow Melton's momentum, but maybe the former "Riverdale" star will surprise us in March.

Golden Globes host Jo Koy's opening monologue was so-so

Comedian Jo Koy began the ceremony with some jokes that landed and others that didn't. Koy admitted that he hadn't watched anything aside from "Beef" before being offered the hosting gig.

"The minute I signed the contract, I locked myself in a room and I started to binge watch everything," Koy said. "While my family was out there, clinking champagne glasses and ringing in the New Year, I was watching 'Oppenheimer.' ... I love the 'Oppenheimer.' I just got one complaint. It needed another hour."

The comedian gave his own take on the "Barbenheimer" awards race, as well.

"'Oppenheimer' and 'Barbie' are competing for cinematic box office achievements. 'Oppenheimer' is based on a 721-page Pulitzer Prize-winning book about the Manhattan Project. And Barbie is on a plastic doll with big boobies."

Koy also took some shots at "Killers of the Flower Moon," the Martin Scorsese-directed crime drama that delves into the serial murder of members of Osage Nation known as the Reign of Terror.

"So one thing I learned about that movie is that white people stole everything," Koy said. "Not like 97% — you guys stole 100% of everything. You took the land. You took the oil. You took the premise of the movie."

There was also an odd "The Color Purple"-Ozempic joke.

"Danielle Brooks is here. Fantasia's here. Colman Domingo — all in 'The Color Purple,'" Koy said. "'The Color Purple' is also what happens to your butt when you take Ozempic."

The one person whom Koy appeared to unequivocally love was Meryl Streep, who received several shoutouts throughout the monologue.

Robert Downey Jr. just won the Globe for his supporting role in Christopher Nolan's "Oppenheimer" as Lewis Strauss, who has a complex (and eventually antagonistic) relationship with the title character.

"I took a beta blocker, so this is gonna be a breeze," RDJ said at the top of his acceptance speech.

Jo Koy seems obsessed with Meryl Streep

He has mentioned her several times 10 minutes into this monologue.

But we get it ... she's the GOAT.

A look inside the Beverly Hilton room where it happens

Hollywood is back! Here's a look at inside the ballroom, where many people seem to be talking about how happy they are that the strikes are over and that Hollywood is back and stronger than ever.

Jo Koy's monologue seems to be getting an iffy reception in the room

The crowd’s reaction to some of these jokes has been pretty, shall we say, muted so far ...

It's showtime!

We're about three minutes past the hour, Jo Koy is ribbing "Oppenheimer," and the Globes are officially underway.

Rosamund Pike and 'Saltburn' Mania

“Saltburn” star Rosamund Pike wore an all black lace dress and accessorized it with a matching “protective veil.”

Some may have thought she was channeling the film's dark vibes. But she told Variety she had a ski accident during Christmas.

“On the 26th of December, my face was entirely smashed out,” Pike said.

Even though she has healed, Pike said she still felt like she needed the additional protection.

Angela Bassett just can't miss

To the surprise of no one, Angela Bassett arrived at the Golden Globes red carpet serving lewks.

Bassett, who isn't up for an award but already has two Golden Globes under her belt, stunned in a black velvet gown and sequined clutch.

Margot Robbie stuns in a vintage Barbie recreation

Hi, Barbie!

Margot Robbie showed up at the red carpet in a shimmering pink dress in true "Barbie" fashion.

Robbie, who's up for best performance by an actress in a motion picture, musical or comedy, told the Variety pre-show that she collaborated with Armani to recreate the outfit the iconic Superstar Barbie from 1977 wore. 

TBH, this should count as her first win of the night.

Feels like Mother's Day on the carpet

Bradley Cooper, nominated for his Netflix film "Maestro," also brought his mom as his date.

He's now the third celeb to bring their mama to the carpet — he also knows moms make the best plus ones.

ICYMI: The Golden Globes added two new categories

Awards for best performance in stand-up comedy on television and for cinematic and box office achievement will be given out tonight for the first time in the Globes' history.

Critics have long considered adding the stand-up category to be long overdue. But considering that 2023 was the year of “Barbenheimer,” it seems fitting to have the box office achievement category launch this year.

Emily Blunt and John Krasinski arrive at the red carpet

Mom and dad are here!

Favorite couple Emily Blunt and John Krasinski have arrived together at the Globes. Blunt, who's up for best supporting actress in a motion picture for her role in "Oppenheimer," is wearing a gold, sequined gown, while Krasinski is rocking a crimson suit and plum pants.

Leonardo DiCaprio sporting an Osage Nation pin

DiCaprio, nominated for "Killers of the Flower Moon," told Variety that he’s wearing an Osage Nation pin on his suit tonight.

“We're standing in unison with them for this movie," he said.

‘Poor Things’ cast steps into the red carpet

“Poor Things” stars Emma Stone, Willem Dafoe and Mark Ruffalo and the film’s director, Yorgos Lanthimos, arrived at the red carpet together.

Asked about what part of the script made him feel like “really, we’re going to do that,” Ruffalo jokingly said, “Pages 1 to 127.”

Stone said she jumped into the project after “falling in love with Bella,” her character in the film, which is nominated for best motion picture (musical or comedy).

Charles Melton brings his mom as his date

“May December” actor Charles Melton brought his mom, Sukyong Melton, as his date to the Globes.

Sukyong, who was all smiles on the red carpet, told Variety that she was "very proud" of her son, who is nominated for best supporting actor in a motion picture. It's the "Riverdale" actor's first Golden Globe nod.

Charles has been open about the struggles and sacrifices that his mother, a Korean immigrant, made for his family. He previously told "Good Morning America" that she immigrated to the U.S. in 1990 after she married his father, Phil Melton, who was in the military.

"Riverdale" hive rise up! Some of us know talent when we see it early on. Just saying.

So many celebrities are bringing their mothers to the Golden Globes! "Lessons in Chemistry" star Brie Larson also stepped into the red carpet alongside her mom. We love to see it.

And we have yet ANOTHER mom appearance.

Bradley Cooper, who's up for best director and best actor in a motion picture drama for his work in "Maestro," brought his mom Gloria Campano with him to the Globes.

'Past Lives' director Celine Song reflects on nominations

Celine Song's "Past Lives" received five nominations at the Globes. The writer and director said the recognition for her debut feature has been surreal.

“It feels amazing. ... I’m just so happy, it’s just so cool," she told NBC News on the carpet. "I feel so happy that I made this movie, because I feel so happy with the present that I live in now.”

America Ferrera on first time watching 'Barbie' being filmed

The "Barbie" star ditched the distinct pink outfits the cast wore during the film's press tour, instead opting for a glamorous silver dress for the Golden Globes red carpet.

In speaking to Variety, Ferrera recalled being on set the day the movie's opening scene in Barbieland was filmed.

"I remember walking on set the very first day of filming and they were shooting that very first shot," she said as she described Margot Robbie's looking "more like Barbie than Barbie herself."

She even sang along to Lizzo's track "Pink," which is used during that iconic scene.

"I wasn't a Barbie girl growing up, but something about the beauty and the childhood play of it made me so nostalgic," Ferrera added.

"Barbie" castmate Will Ferrell also appeared at the red carpet, where he revealed he didn’t play with any Barbies as a kid.

"I missed out on that," he said.

Reese Witherspoon’s date is her son

"The Morning Show" star Reese Witherspoon brought her son, Deacon Reese Phillippe, to the show as her date.

Phillippe told Variety it's his first Golden Globes and awards show. Surprising for a nepo baby, but good for him!

'The Last of Us' co-creator is here for his first Globes

Neil Druckmann, a co-creator of "The Last of Us," said he's here for the "crazy journey" that's come with the popularity of the show, based on his video game.

"'The Last of Us' has taken me on such a crazy journey," Druckmann, who is the vice president of its development studio, Naughty Dog, told NBC News on the carpet. "And this is just one more stop on that journey that I just feel very privileged and honored to be here."

Colman Domingo arrives at the Golden Globes

The "Color Purple" star dazzled the red carpet with some show-stopping jewelry and an edgy black suit. But his gushing over Margot Robbie, Leonardo DiCaprio and other Hollywood colleagues was even sweeter.

"We’re celebrating such a terrific year in film and to be a part of that," he told Variety during the pre-show. "I feel like this is a great class to be a part of ... with films that have been breaking barriers and bringing people back into the theaters."

Jo Koy gets a pre-show snack from ‘Recess Therapy’

Comedian and host Jo Koy was bestowed some peanut butter and jelly sandwiches from Avery and Amina, two adorable girls who made an appearance on the red carpet with "Recess Therapy," a web series hosted by Julian Shapiro-Barnum in which kids are asked big questions.

We heard nominees get to dine on Nobu, but these sammies are clearly the best dish of the night.

Nicolas Cage is celebrating his birthday on the carpet

Nicolas Cage, who is nominated for a Golden Globe for his role in “Dream Scenario," is celebrating his birthday today.

In a pre-show carpet interview with Variety, Cage called it the second most epic birthday of his life.

"I’m just looking at this whole experience as one big birthday party," he said. "... I’m excited to see everybody. Everybody’s invited to my birthday party."

Taylor Swift watch

In its opening weekend, Taylor Swift’s “Eras Tour” concert film became the highest-grossing concert film in domestic box office history, according to Variety.

So for anyone who’s followed Swifts massive year, it didn’t come as much of a surprise when her concert film was announced as a contender in the Golden Globes’ new cinematic and box office achievement in motion pictures category.

To qualify for the category, movies must have earned “$150 million or more at the box office, or equivalent viewing numbers in streaming,” according to a Golden Globes news release.

Swift is expected to be at the show. But her boo, Travis Kelce, likely will not be there because, well ... he also has a job (the Kansas City Chiefs play the Los Angeles Chargers today).

We look forward to seeing whether the pop star will be rocking a bejeweled outfit and if she’ll end up adding yet another impressive achievement under her belt.

Golden Globes swag bags are worth $500,000 (yes, really!)

In December, the Golden Globes unveiled what's in this year's "exclusive" gift bags, which will be given to the ceremony’s presenters and winners. And apparently the bags, curated by luxury lifestyle magazine Robb Report, are worth $500,000.

For a complete list of what's in the bags, click here.

'Ted Lasso' star Hannah Waddingham pregamed the red carpet with fries

This is what it means to be effortlessly chic. 

Hannah Waddingham of Apple TV’s “Ted Lasso” showed up to the Golden Globes red carpet in a stunning lace corset dress. And while one would assume such a glamorous outfit would take hours of prep, Waddingham told Variety she actually woke up at a reasonable time and pregamed with some fries before showing up to the ceremony. 

“I woke up at, like, 8 o’clock, had some brekkie. And I’ve had some chips, french fries, before I’ve come here,” Waddingham, who’s up for best supporting actress, television, for her role as AFC Richmond owner Rebecca Walton in the comedy series, told Variety in the pre-show. “So I’m all good to go.”

What we’re most excited about

Saba: I am optimistic there will be some kind of Kenergetic “Barbie” number. Also looking out for a “Succession” sweep — the other Ken deserves it.

Kimmy: I’m definitely interested in seeing if Charles Melton will be taking home a win for his role in “May December.” His acting in the film was such a leap from what many of us know him for in the teen drama “Riverdale.” I’m also crossing my fingers that he gives his mom’s kimchi a shoutout in his Globes acceptance speech.

Nicole: I can’t wait to “dance the night away” and see which of the three nominated “Barbie” tracks will take home best original song. I’m also looking forward to seeing Pedro Pascal win best lead actor in a drama series for “The Last of Us” (just manifesting here), considering that he is only the second Latino actor ever nominated in that category.

Angela: I’m eager to see if “Past Lives” scores a win. How cool would it be if Celine Song takes home a Golden Globe for her debut feature?

Chloe: Host Jo Koy is hilarious, and I really hope he goes after the laughs. Also, I’ll be inside the room, so I’m excited for the food!

Daniel: I’m curious to see how things shake out in the competitive race for best actor in a drama film. The front-runners are Bradley Cooper, for his showy portrait of Leonard Bernstein in “Maestro,” and Cillian Murphy, for his relatively muted take on J. Robert Oppenheimer. In the comedy actor category, I’m rooting for Paul Giamatti, who is so funny and moving in “The Holdovers.”

'Oppenheimer' producer excited for movie's big night

Charles Roven, a producer for "Oppenheimer," said the massive positive reaction to the film exceeded his expectations.

"While we might have hoped for success, I don’t think any of us looking at each other would’ve said, ‘OK, it’s gonna do almost $1 billion theatrically,'" he told NBC News on the red carpet.

Roven was also excited to be at the show, especially after months of the industry's being halted with the simultaneous actors and writers strikes.

"It feels great to have Hollywood and just the entertainment community and motion pictures to be back," he said.

It's always sunny in Los Angeles ...

And today's no different. Though as it is L.A. winter, it's a bit crisp for us Angelenos. Today's forecast is in the high 50s, but extremely windy. I'm sure the red carpet looks will stay intact, though; celebrities (and their excellent teams) are prepared for anything when it comes to awards season.

Expect to see some influencers on the carpet

In recent years, influencers have become a more common sight at Hollywood events — from movie premieres to awards shows.

Remember when Amelia Dimoldenberg, host of the popular YouTube show "Chicken Shop Date," went viral for that interview with Andrew Garfield on the Globes carpet?

Well, having Dimoldenberg on the carpet proved to bring more attention to the awards show. So the people behind the Globes plan to incorporate creators again, hoping to replicate the success. This time, they've invited Julian Shapiro-Barnum and the team from "Recess Therapy," a show that gave us the viral “Corn Kid” moment, to conduct interviews on the carpet.

“Creators help us accomplish award show awareness in different ways,” said Jeremy Lowe, vice president of talent and partner at Dick Clark Productions, which produces the Golden Globes, told Forbes. “Our goal is to invite creators who you wouldn’t necessarily expect to see at an award show.”

How we’re covering tonight’s show

Per usual, NBC News Digital will be live-blogging all day. Watch out for fun, voicey updates from our live blog team — reporters Daniel Arkin, Nicole Acevedo and Kimmy Yam will be taking the lead.

This year, we will also have one of our reporters, Angela Yang, on the carpet and in the press room for more behind-the-scenes reporting. Entertainment correspondent Chloe Melas will be in the room where it happens with all the stars, sharing tidbits with the blog that the cameras don’t show.

Who is presenting?

The announced presenters include stars such as: Angela Bassett, Will Ferrell, Michelle Yeoh, Amanda Seyfried, George Lopez, Julia Garner, Justin Hartley, America Ferrera, Daniel Kaluuya, Florence Pugh, Hailee Steinfeld, Issa Rae, Oprah Winfrey, Shameik Moore and Simu Liu.

Also on the list, as of Friday: Andra Day, Annette Bening, Ben Affleck, Don Cheadle, Dua Lipa, Elizabeth Banks, Gabriel "Fluffy" Iglesias, Hunter Schafer, Jared Leto, Jodie Foster, Jon Batiste, Jonathan Bailey, Kate Beckinsale, Keri Russell, Kevin Costner, Kristen Wiig, Mark Hamill, Matt Damon, Naomi Watts, Orlando Bloom, Ray Romano, Rose McIver and Utkarsh Ambudkar.

There will also be a mini “Suits” reunion — actors Gabriel Macht and Patrick Adams, who portrayed Harvey Specter and Michael Ross on the show, will present. The series, which starred Meghan Markle and aired for nine seasons from 2011 to 2019, recently regained popularity on Netflix when it became available to stream.

Golden Globes nominee Matt Bomer is having a big year

Matt Bomer is nominated for a Golden Globe for “Fellow Travelers,” which is based on Thomas Mallon’s 2007 historical novel about two men who meet and ignite a lifelong romance in McCarthy-era Washington.

“That’s what I’ve always hoped for — that I’d be a part of telling a story that resonated with someone, that helped them to see their own humanity in some way,” he said in a recent interview.

The actor also has a role in Netflix’s Leonard Bernstein portrait, “Maestro,” alongside Bradley Cooper.

Read more about Bomer in NBC News’ profile here.

‘Barbenheimer’ IRL

“Barbie” and “Oppenheimer” — two very different films — became known as the cultural phenomenon “Barbenheimer” because of their simultaneous release in July, thanks in large part to the online hype generated by a meme.

The Globes will surely bring back the “Barbenheimer” buzz from the summer — “Barbie,” nominated in nine categories, nabbed the most nods. Meanwhile, “Oppenheimer” scored eight nominations.

We predict a lot of pink on the carpet from the “Barbie” stars — including Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling and America Ferrera — and director Greta Gerwig. We’ll see if Cillian Murphy, who played the titular J. Robert Oppenheimer, and director Christopher Nolan will be sporting the darker colors associated with the historical drama.

What to watch for at this year’s Globes

You may be done with “Barbenheimer,” but “Barbenheimer” isn’t done with you. The two biggest movie events of 2023 loom large over the Globes: Christopher Nolan’s “Oppenheimer” is the front-runner for best drama film; it’s Greta Gerwig’s “Barbie” for best comedy film.

The film acting categories are somewhat more competitive this year. In the drama actor field, Bradley Cooper (“Maestro”) faces off against Cillian Murphy (“Oppenheimer”). The comedy actress race pits Margot Robbie (“Barbie”) against Emma Stone (“Poor Things”).

The fight for best supporting actor is especially crowded and appears to be a three-way fight among Robert Downey Jr. (“Oppenheimer”), Ryan Gosling (“Barbie”) and Charles Melton (“May December”). Melton, the 33-year-old former “Riverdale” star, seems to have the momentum right now.

Then we’ve got the television categories. The final season of HBO’s “Succession” is almost certainly going to sweep the drama races. In keeping with the spirit of the show, there’s some suspense over whether voters will crown Brian Cox, Kieran Culkin or Jeremy Strong, who are all nominated.

Last, best comedy series is probably anyone’s game. “Barry” and “Ted Lasso” recently went off the air, “Abbott Elementary” and “Only Murders in the Building” are beloved by loyal fans, “The Bear” is a critical darling, and “Jury Duty” was one of last year’s out-of-nowhere sleeper hits. We shall see!

What were some of the biggest snubs this year?

It wouldn’t be awards season without some good ol’ snubs — aka the shows and movies the internet collectively felt like deserved more recognition. Some of the most glaring examples this year include:

  • “The Color Purple” — The adaptation of the Broadway musical, based on the novel written by Alice Walker, didn’t get a nod in the best motion picture (musical or comedy) category.
  • America Ferrera — the actor, whose monologue in “Barbie” went viral, didn’t get an acting nomination, even though the movie got nine nods total.
  • Harrison Ford — one of Hollywood’s biggest leading men — didn’t get nominated for his role on “Shrinking” (which co-star Jason Segel did receive a nomination for) or for Taylor Sheridan’s “1923" (in which he played opposite Helen Mirren).
  • “Reservation Dogs” — the FX show about a group of Indigenous teenagers in rural Oklahoma — didn’t get a nomination for its final season, despite gaining critical acclaim over the past few years.

What time does the red carpet start?

The carpet is rolled out and ready, but stars aren't expected to arrive until around 3:30 PT/6:30 ET.

That's when this year's official red carpet preshow, hosted by Variety and “Entertainment Tonight,” kicks off.

It will be available to watch on "Variety's digital and social platforms, ETOnline.com, the Golden Globe Awards website and on the digital platforms of 20 other publications owned by Penske Media Corp., parent company of Variety, which also owns the Globes in a joint venture with Eldridge," according to Variety.

Here are some of NBC News’ best movie predictions ahead of the Globes.

Portrayals of LGBTQ trailblazers got some recognition

Multiple big-name actors received nods for their roles as notable LGBTQ figures of the past century.

Among the recognized biopics, “Maestro,” directed by and starring Bradley Cooper, led the race, with four nominations, including best actor in a motion picture drama. But not far behind were two more big-budget Netflix features from 2023: Jimmy Chin and Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi’s “Nyad” and George C. Wolfe’s “Rustin,” which each earned its stars acting nominations.

Meet the host: Jo Koy

For a while it seemed like the Globes had neither a network to air on nor a host to crack all the jokes. But that changed a couple of weeks ago with news that comedian Jo Koy would be taking on hosting duties.

Koy, who’s best known for his stand-up, posted about the news on TikTok on Dec. 21. The Filipino American star also gave a heartwarming shoutout to his family after it was announced.

“I’ve stepped onto a lot of stages around the world in my career, but this one is going to be extra special. I’m so excited to be hosting the Golden Globes this year,” Koy said in a statement before telling his family “I love you” in the Filipino language of Tagalog. “This is that moment where I get to make my Filipino family proud. Mahal Kita (Google it)!”

First Golden Globes without Hollywood Foreign Press Association: What to expect

This year’s Globes will be the first ceremony since Dick Clark Productions and Eldridge Industries took the reins from the scandal-plagued Hollywood Foreign Press Association, a group of fewer than 100 voters that had drawn heavy scrutiny for its lack of diversity and ethically questionable practices.

The show itself probably won’t be radically different from years past, though there are two new categories that could help spice up ratings: “Cinematic and Box Office Achievement” and “Best Performance in Stand-Up Comedy on Television.” (Taylor Swift’s smash-hit “Eras Tour” concert movie is nominated in the former category.)

The new voting body is said to be much more diverse, too — so, at the very least, we might hear fewer jokes about the Globes’ blind spots on issues of race and gender.

Of course, some things never change. Brace yourselves for some booze-assisted speeches and a run time that threatens to push past three hours.
