Oppenheimer dominated the Golden Globe
The big winner of the night was Universal Pictures' Oppenheimer, which won five awards
After a successful box office in 2023, Christopher Nolan's Oppenheimer began the 2024 film awards season with a bang, winning best motion picture drama at the 81st Golden Globe. The impressive drama about the creation of the atomic bomb dominated the Golden Globe and, with five statuettes won, is the undoubted winner of the evening.
"A great story about the ethical dilemma of nuclear weapons made a billion dollars?", Robert Downey Jr. was also jokingly surprised, who accepted his Golden Globe with a smile on his face for the best episodic actor in the film Oppenheimer. Along with Golden Globe for Best Picture and Best Supporting Actor, Oppenheimer also took home awards for Director (Christopher Nolan), Actor (Cillian Murphy) and Music (Ludwig Göransson).
And while Oppenheimer was the undoubted winner in the drama category, in the musical or comedy categories, the Golden Globe were distributed to several films. Poor Things was declared the best film, and Emma Stone won the Golden Globe for the best actress for her role in that film, but the comedy drama The Holdovers was equally successful - at the end of the evening, she had two awards for the best actor (Paul Giamatti) and the best cameo actress (Da'Vine Joy Randolph).
The HBO series Succession, which has a strong dose of satire, was declared the best drama, while the Golden Globe for the best comedy went to the series The Bear, which has many dramatic elements.
