Oppenheimer and Succession have been crowned the big winners at this year’s Golden Globes – with Barbie’s box office domination celebrated too.
In the film categories, Emma Stone’s Poor Things, The Holdovers, and the French thriller Anatomy Of A Fall were also successful, while comedy-dramas Beef and The Bear took home big prizes in the TV categories.
This year’s ceremony introduced the first award for cinematic achievement – and with Barbie grossing more than $1.4bn worldwide, there could only be one winner (despite competition from Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour).
But the night belonged to Oppenheimer – with five gongs including best dramatic film, best actor for Cillian Murphy and best director for Christopher Nolan – and the final, critically acclaimed season of Succession, which took home four, including best dramatic TV series and acting trophies for Keiran Culkin, Sarah Snook and Matthew Macfadyen.
Irish actor Murphy was red-nosed as he accepted his award, arriving on stage and saying: “Oh boy, do I have lipstick all over my nose? I’m just going to leave it.”
He went on to say that working on a Nolan set was “different” and paid tribute to his co-stars and fellow nominees, which included Saltburn’s Barry Keoghan and All Of Us Strangers’ Andrew Scott, saying: “If you’re Irish or not, you’re all legends and I salute you.”
