The Fabelmans

The Fabelmans and The Banshees Of Inisherin claimed the top film awards on Tuesday night as a star-studded Golden Globes ceremony returned following last year’s Hollywood boycott.

Searchlight Pictures’ The Banshees Of Inisherin started the evening as the most nominated film on eight nods and finished with the biggest haul, converting three into wins for best musical or comedy, best screenwriter for Martin McDonagh, and best actor musical or comedy for Colin Farrell.

These were second career Globe wins for Farrell, who won for McDonagh’s In Bruges in 2009, and McDonagh, who received the screenplay prize for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri in 2018.

In addition to its best dramatic film award, Universal/Amblin’s The Fabelmans earned an emotional Steven Spielberg his third career directing Globe after Saving Private Ryan in 1999 and Schindler’s List in 1994.

A24’s Everything Everywhere All At Once also landed two wins as Michelle Yeoh became the first Malaysian actress to win in the musical or comedy category, and Ke Huy Quan became the first Vietnam-born actor to win supporting actor.

Cate Blanchett won a historic best dramatic actress award for Focus Features’ TÁR, becoming only one of four women alongside Meryl Streep, Ingrid Bergman and Jane Fonda to win the category three times after doing so for Elizabeth in 1999 and Blue Jasmine in 2014. Blanchett, who was not in attendance and is filming in the UK, won the supporting actress award for I’m Not There in 2008.

Austin Butler claimed the best dramatic actor prize for his lead role in Warner Bros’ Elvis. Angela Bassett won her second career Globe for supporting actress in Disney/Marvel Studios’ Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, 29 years after she was named best actress in a comedy of musical for playing Tina Turner in What’s Love Got To Do With It.

Prime Video’s Argentina, 1985 emerged victorious in the foreign film category and Netflix’s Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio took the animation award. In the other film awards, Paramount’s Babylon won best score while ‘Naatu Naatu’ from DVV Entertainment’s RRR earned the gong for best song.

Show broadcaster NBC and the Hollywood community stayed away last year in response to a damning 2021 Los Angeles Times exposé that alleged financial impropriety and a lack of ethnic diversity among membership at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA).

That forced the group led by president Helen Hoehne to stage a private ceremony and announce its 2022 winners via Twitter. However once the HFPA began to implement a process of reform – among other measures it brought in 103 new voters earlier this year, including members of Fipresci – the community returned.

Tuesday’s 80th annual ceremony was hosted by US comedian Jerrod Carmichael, who calmly roasted the HFPA in his opening monologue and quipped, “I’ll tell you why I’m here, I’m here cause I’m Black.”

The show also featured a video message from Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskiy, who said, “The war in Ukraine is not over yet but the time is coming and it is already clear who will win… Ukraine will stop Russian aggression on our land.”

Showrunner Ryan Murphy and Eddie Murphy both received honorary awards. Murphy asked Pose star MJ Rodriguez to take a bow and receive the acclaim she missed out on last year when she became the first trans actress to win a Globe for best actress in a drama series during the behind-closed-doors ceremony.

Television highlights saw best musical or comedy series Abbott Elementary (Hulu) lead the way with three wins on the night while best limited series or TV film The White Lotus (HBO) took home two including best actress musical or comedy for show creator Quinta Brunson.

In one of the most popular wins of the night, Jennifer Coolidge from HBO’s The White Lotus took home her first Golden Globe for best supporting actress in a limited series or TV film.

Kevin Costner, who stayed at his home in California during fierce flooding, was named best actor in a TV drama for the popular Paramount Network series Yellowstone.
