Winners, Losers, Glitches and Sips, The 2024 Golden Globes at the Beverly Hilton.


Winners, Losers, Glitches and Sips.

Highlights and Winners

“Oppenheimer” emerged as the night’s big winner at the Golden Globes, claiming five awards including Best Motion Picture Drama. Its powerful narrative left an indelible mark, making it a strong contender in the upcoming awards season.

Zendaya scorched the Red Carpet on her way in to pick up her award for Dune 2 and Lily Gladstone became the first Indigenous person to win a Golden Globe for Best Actress.

Television saw “Succession” dominate with four awards, underscoring its critical acclaim. Meanwhile, “The Bear” and “Beef” also shone brightly, each securing three awards and showcasing the diversity of stories in the TV landscape.

The night was not without its uncomfortable moments, particularly with Jo Koy’s monologue, which lacked the expected punch, leading to a rather frigid reception from the audience. Ironically, previous host Ricky Gervais, known for his acerbic and controversial hosting style, won an award for his stand-up comedy special but was notably absent from the ceremony.

The Golden Globe Awards often set the tone for the Oscars, and this year is no different. “Oppenheimer” is now positioned as a frontrunner for the Oscars, potentially in categories like Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actor. Similarly, the triumph of “Poor Things” at the Globes could translate into Oscar nods, especially in the Best Actress category.

The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, a landmark of Hollywood’s “enduring charm”, once again served as the glamorous backdrop for the 81st Golden Globe Awards. This iconic venue, a hub for the stars of film and television, also features in the captivating “Lights Camera Distraction” tour, offering a unique glimpse into Hollywood’s celebrated history… of which more was made, Sunday January 7th 2024.

Until Next Year…

As the 81st Golden Globe Awards drew to a close at the Beverly Hilton, it did so against the backdrop of  one of the most chaotic and transformative years in Hollywood’s recent history.

The ceremony, traditionally broadcast on NBC, found a new home on CBS, marking a significant change in its decades-long history. This shift came amid a year fraught with industry-wide upheaval, including extensive writers and  actors strikes that brought to light critical issues around the use of A.I. and streaming business models. These strikes, which eventually reached  resolution, left a profound impact on the production of movies and shows, both in terms of content and the economics of the industry. Not to mention they decided to drop the Cecil B. DeMille award for movies and the Carol Burnett Award for Television because the producers apparently had difficulty finding willing recipients.

Q8: Who hosted the 81st Golden Globe Awards? A8: Comedian Jo Koy hosted the awards ceremony, with apparently only 10 days notice, which posed the question, was he….ready for it? Predictably, Media outlets zeroed in on his not so well received joke about “Taylor Swift” and the NFL. It felt more like a jab at the NFL rather than Swift, nevertheless, he wasn’t able to shake it off, and the delicate night limped along. In the Afterglow, we know All Too Well how the media loves to latch on to her for self-gratification, but they needn’t be so obvious about it, it’s not like she’s gonna go out of style any time soon, we hope. (Yeah we’re Swifties here at Bounce).

Q9: Did Kylie Jenner say “I love you” to her boyfriend Timothee Chalamet? Yes, No, Maybe. Who cares?
