All the Golden Globe winners and where to stream them
What’s that we hear? The tinkling of statuettes and the rustle of acceptance speeches? The Golden Globes mark the start of awards season in Hollywood, and the 76th edition hosted by comedian Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh came with a goodie bag stuffed with plum picks. Here’s where you can stream the hottest, Golden Globe-winning series and movies:
It’s been far too long in coming. The Americans, now in its sixth and final season, finally scooped a Golden Globe in the category Best TV Series: Drama. Everyone’s favourite spy intrigue beat out the Bodyguard and Homecoming, the Prime Original starring Julia Roberts.
Speaking of the Bodyguard, Richard Madden won Best Performance by an Actor in a TV Series: Drama, proving that six episodes are more than enough to showcase talent. You can watch Richard in season 1 of Bodyguard on Netflix, and look out for him as Robb Stark in the first few seasons of Game of Thrones on Showmax.
The Kominsky Method
If you haven’t dipped your toes into The Kominsky Method yet, where have you been? This Netflix Original took home two Golden Globes, one for Best TV Series: Musical or Comedy and another for Best Performance by an Actor in a TV Series: Musical or Comedy for Michael Douglas in his role as an ageing acting coach in his not-so-golden years.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
Rachel Brosnahan won Best Performance by an Actress in a TV Series: Musical or Comedy for her portrayal as the spunky Midge Maisel as she tries to break into the stand-up comedy scene in New York in the 50s. Watch it on Amazon Prime.
The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story
Proving that true crime never goes out of fashion, The Assassination of Gianni Versace won Best Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television and Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for Darren Criss. The series will be coming to DStv Now early this year, so keep an eye out for it.
Patricia Clarkson won Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for her role in Sharp Objects. Based on the best-selling book by Gillian Flynn, Sharp Objects is on Showmax.
A snapshot of life in Mexico in the 1970s, Alfonso Cuarón won Best Director for Roma, now showing on Netflix, as well as Best Motion Picture: Foreign Language. It’s a deeply intimate look at a country on the brink of change, as told through the lens of Cuarón, who told Bustle in an interview that “90 percent of the scenes come out of my memory”.
For the love of Sandra Oh
Not only did Sandra Oh win for Best Performance by Actress in a TV series (Drama) for Killing Eve, but she made history as the first person of Asian descent to host the Golden Globes.
