Golden Globes: Netflix Scores Big Wins as 'Bohemian Rhapsody' and 'Green Book ...


“Bohemian Rhapsody,” a biopic of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury that endured a troubled production to become a box office smash, won best drama over the heavily favored “A Star is Born.” “Green Book,” a look at the friendship between a white bouncer and a black jazz musician, upset “Vice” to score a best comedy award.


The Globes honor the best in both film and television, allowing the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the eccentric band of journalists behind the awards show, to pack the ballroom at the Beverly Hilton with A-listers from both the big and small screen.


“The Americans,” for instance, was sent off in style at the ceremony, capturing the best TV drama award over the likes of “Killing Eve” and “Pose.” The FX series about Cold War espionage wrapped its acclaimed run after six seasons and eight episodes.


The awards were a rare piece of good news for Annapurna, which has been brought low by a series of film flops such as “Detroit” and “Sisters Brothers.” Larry Ellison is pressuring his daughter to get the studio’s financial house in order and has grown tired of losing money.


In addition to hosting, Oh picked up a best actress in a TV drama statue for her role as an obsessive MI-6 agent in “Killing Eve.” When it came to emceeing, she and Samberg were kinder and gentler than such predecessors as Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and, most infamously, Ricky Gervais, all of whom used their stints to vivisect Hollywood pretension.


It was derided for dwelling on Barrymore’s personal life, claiming she was “unstable in her relationships.” Earlier this year, Takla-O’Reilly’s predecessor as HFPA chief, Philip Berk, was publicly accused of sexual harassment by Brendan Fraser.
