Now that the Golden Globes are over it’s time to take a look at the winners, the surprise, and the snubs. Who went home with a trophy?
After the un-televised ceremony last year, which happened due a lot of incidents around the Hollywood Foreign Press Academy, the Golden Globes are back. After a bunch of changes at the institute and the addition of more than a hundred new members, the Golden Globes are back.
On December 12, 2022, the HFPA announced the nominees for the Film and Television categories, roughly a month before the winner ceremony took place on January 10, 2023.
For this article we focus on the Film categories and without further ado, let’s take a look at the winners and biggest snubs and surprises of the night:
Nominees: Better Call Saul, House of the Dragon, Ozark, Severance, The Crown
Winner: House of the Dragon
This already is a surprising win, as most people expected the Apple TV+ show Severance to take the win. Considering that only one actor from House of the Dragon was nominated, this wasn’t an easy prediction to make.
Nominees: Abbot Elementary, Hacks, Only Murders in the Building, The Bear, Wednesday
Winner: Abbot Elementary
This comes as no surprise as Abbott Elementary is THE comedy series right now.
TV MOVIE/LIMITED SERIES
Nominees: Black Bird, Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, Pam and Tommy, The Dropout, The White Lotus: Sicily
Winner: The White Lotus: Sicily
This win also comes as no surprise as this show is one of the most beloved series running right now.
ACTOR IN A DRAMA SERIES
Nominees: Adam Scott – Severance, Bob Odenkirk – Better Call Saul, Diego Luna – Andor, Jeff Bridges – The Old Man, Kevin Costner – Yellowstone
Winner: Kevin Costner – Yellowstone
This win probably is the most surprising of the night. Every awards pundit expected Bob Odenkirk or Adam Scott to win here, while Kevin Costner was mostly not even considered a real contender due to the absence of Yellowstone in other categories.
ACTRESS IN A DRAMA SERIES
Nominees: Emma D’Arcy – House of the Dragon, Hilary Swank – Alaska Daily, Imelda Staunton – The Crown, Laura Linney – Ozark, Zendaya – Euphoria
Winner: Zendaya – Euphoria
Nothing too see here, just Zendaya continuing her deserved Awards sweep.
ACTOR IN A COMEDY SERIES
Nominees: Bill Hader – Barry, Donald Glover – Atlanta, Jeremy Allen White – The Bear, Martin Short – Only Murders in the Building, Steve Martin – Only Murders in the Building
Winner: Jeremy Allen White – The Bear
This win was also on most people’s predictions, but it’s still impressive that an actor in a new show beat all these veterans in the category. People really loved The Bear.
ACTRESS IN A COMEDY SERIES
Nominees: Jean Smart – Hacks, Jenna Ortega – Wednesday, Kaley Cuoco – The Flight Attendant, Quinta Brunson – Abbott Elementary, Selena Gomez – Only Murders in the Building
Winner: Quinta Brunson – Abbott Elementary
It doesn’t come as too much of a surprise considering Abbott Elementary is such a big contender, but over the last few weeks more and more started to predict Jenna Ortega, including me. Most people thought Abbott Elementary will win its awards in other categories.
ACTOR IN A TV MOVIE/LIMITED SERIES
Nominees: Andrew Garfield – Under the Banner of Heaven, Colin Firth –The Staircase, Evan Peters – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, Sebastian Stan – Pam and Tommy, Taron Egerton – Black Bird
Winner: Evan Peters – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story
No surprise here, Peters will probably continue to win all season.
ACTRESS IN A TV MOVIE/LIMITED SERIES
Nominees: Amanda Seyfried – The Dropout, Jessica Chastain – George and Tammy, Julia Garner – Inventing Anna, Julia Roberts – Gaslit, Lily James – Pam and Tommy
Winner: Amanda Seyfried – The Dropout
This also comes as no big surprise considering Seyfried’s Awards sweep, but I still predicted that Jessica Chastain could surprise here with her new show George and Tammy.
SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A COMEDY/DRAMA SERIES
Nominees: Henry Winkler – Barry, John Lithgow – The Old Man, John Turturro – Severance, Jonathan Pryce – The Crown, Tyler James Williams – Abbott Elementary
Winner: Tyler James Williams – Abbott Elementary
Abbott Elementary continues its winning streak even though most people expected it to be in the next category.
SUPPORTING ACTRESS IN A COMEDY/DRAMA SERIES
Nominees: Elizabeth Debicki – The Crown, Hannah Einbinder – Hacks, Janelle James – Abbott Elementary, Julia Garner – Ozark, Sheryl Lee Ralph – Abbott Elementary
Winner: Julia Garner – Ozark
Julia Garner is still unbeatable even with the last Season of Ozark she continues the winning streak for her role. Most people expected Shery Lee Ralph to be awarded here after her Emmy win.
SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A TV MOVIE/LIMITED SERIES
Nominees: Domnhnall Gleeson – The Patient, F. Murray Abraham – The White Lotus: Sicily, Paul Walter Hauser – Black Bird, Richard Jenkins – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, Seth Rogen – Pam and Tommy
Winner: Paul Walter Hauser – Black Bird
Another win that wasn’t easy to predict with Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story and White Lotus: Sicily stars in competition, but Paul Walter Hauser got the deserving win. Proud to say that I predicted that correctly.
SUPPORTING ACTRESS IN A TV MOVIE/LIMITED SERIES
Nominees: Aubrey Plaza – The White Lotus: Sicily, Claire Danes – Fleishman is in Trouble, Daisy Edgar-Jones – Under the Banner of Heaven, Jennifer Coolidge – The White Lotus: Sicily, Niecy Nash-Betts – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story
Winner: Jennifer Coolidge – The White Lotus: Sicily
The last award in this list was fairly easy to predict as Jennifer Coolidge is on her way to gaining a back-to-back Emmy win.
The Golden Globes took place on January 10, 2023.
