No surprises here: Succession, Oppenheimer, The Bear dominate 2024 Golden Globes

Here’s a complete list of the winners — which barely includes Barbie

Tasha Robinson leads Polygon’s movie coverage. She’s covered film, TV, books, and more for 20 years, including at The A.V. Club, The Dissolve, and The Verge.

Succession and Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer were the biggest winners at the 2024 Golden Globes awards, which felt a little predictable given how thoroughly they dominated their respective categories — particularly the acting categories, which in a couple of different cases had three Succession performers dueling for the top spot. Greta Gerwig’s Barbie didn’t fare as well in the mix, even though it was nominated in many of the categories — ultimately, it only walked away with Best Original Song and the “Cinematic And Box Office Achievement” award.

In fact, most of the big surprises at the 2024 Golden Globe Awards happened well before the ceremony itself. Even with the awards in entirely new hands — after a fresh uproar, a boycott, and the dissolution of the Globes’ original voting body, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association — this year’s nominees garnered the same category consternation that the Globes always tend to earn. The Holdovers, Beau Is Afraid, and May December slapped with the “musical or comedy” label? Julianne Moore as a supporting actor in May December? That weird “Cinematic And Box Office Achievement” category, which seems to mean “movies that made money, but were also pretty good”? While the Golden Globes used to be known as the drunkest awards show on television, and the awards most plagued by scandal, it also leads the awards-show pack in pre-ceremony debate and derision over the award titles and categories.

2024 was a comparatively subdued year for the ceremony. There were a few good speeches (like Lily Gladstone, winning for her performance in Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon) and a few good gags, like Daniel Kaluuya, Hailee Steinfeld, and Shameik Moore presenting the Best Screenplay award with a shoutout to 2023’s massive Hollywood writer’s strike and a dialogue mocking what their presentation would sound like if it had been written by studio executives. (Steinfeld: “I am relatable. I am enjoy the Golden Globs. Do you agree?”) But there weren’t a lot of big surprises, apart from Barbie’s lack of presence compared to its Barbenheimer partner.
