The Golden Globes kicked off the award season in style and brought several welcomed surprises most people didn’t see coming. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood picked the trophy for the best comedy, while 1917 pulled a major upset and won big in the best drama category.

The list of major winners in the acting categories included obvious picks – Joaquin Phoenix (Joker), Brad Pitt (Once Upon a Time), Renée Zellweger (Judy) – alongside unexpected, yet deserved victories – Taron Egerton (Rocketman), Awkwafina (The Farewell), and Laura Dern (Marriage Story).

The list of major winners also included Sam Mendes, who was crowned as best director for his work on 1917, and Quentin Tarantino who picked up the best screenplay award for Once Upon a Time. Korean black comedy Parasite won the best foreign-language film trophy.

Succession, Fleabag, and Chernobyl dominated the TV field and ended up winning two awards each, including the ones in main categories – best drama series, best comedy series, and best mini-series. Tom Hanks was awarded a Cecil B. DeMille Award, while Ellen DeGeneres picked up the Carol Burnett Award.
