2020 Golden Globe Winners

2020 Golden Globe Winners

 

Once again, the Golden Globes made history Sunday night as Sir Elton John and longtime songwriting partner Bernie Taupin won their first award ever together. The two revealed this piece of trivia while accepting the honor for Best Original Song for “(I'm Gonna) Love Me Again,” from Rocketman — fittingly a movie depicting the duo’s collaboration over the decades.

That win was one of the biggest surprises of the 77th annual show, as Disney animated features The Lion King and Frozen II were also major contenders in that category. Another shocker was neither of them winning the Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature, which went to Missing Link — Laika’s first honor from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association after four nominations.

Speaking of unexpected winners, the World War I movie 1917 was honored as Best Picture - Drama at the end of the night, over such competition as Netflix favorites The Irishman and Marriage Story. The recognition for 1917, which opens wide this Friday, was a bit easier to foresee, however, once the movie’s director, Sam Mendes, surprised with a win earlier during the telecast.

Not every winner in the movie categories were surprises, of course. Frontrunner Laura Dern confirmed her status as the Best Supporting Actress of 2019 for her performance in Marriage Story, while Brad Pitt did the same in the Best Supporting Actor category for his work in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Parasite was also a no-brainer for Best Foreign Language Film.

Other highlights from this year’s awards include Joker composer Hildur Guðnadóttir becoming the first solo woman to win the Golden Globe for Best Original Score. Joaquin Phoenix also won Best Actor for his performance in Joker, becoming the second actor to win a Golden Globe playing the DC Comics villain. Also, Awkwafina and Taron Egerton won Golden Globes with their first ever nominations, both for lead acting in a musical or comedy.
