Golden Globes 2020: “1917” and “Fleabag” big winners, Netflix almost empty-handed – Les Inrocks

The 77th Golden Globes ceremony presented by Ricky Gervais took place last night in Los Angeles and rewarded the best of American cinema and television. While Sam Mendes’ war movie and Phoebe Waller Bridge’s comedy series are the two main winners, Netflix productions have only been awarded a single golden globe, despite 18 nominations.

It’s a small surprise. The foreign press crowned last night 1917 best dramatic film and Sam Mendes best director, he who had already won a first Golden Globes as well as an Oscar in 2000 for American Beauty. Quite surprising given the great directors named alongside him (Tarantino and Scorsese). There is a good chance that this double reward announces a nice harvest at the Oscars in a little over a month. This war film – which gives the illusion of being made in a single sequence shot – will undoubtedly meet the same fate asAmerican Beauty.

No surprise, however, for Quentin Tarantino who won the prize for best film script for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, in addition to the award for best comedy or musical film. Tarantino seems decidedly subscribed to this screenplay prize since he had already won it for pulp Fiction and Django Unchained.

An expected track record

As for the actors, nothing very surprising. Joaquin Phoenix obviously picks up Best Actor in a Drama for the Joker, 14 years after receiving his first Golden Globes in 2006 for walk the line. As for the best role in a comedy or musical, it is Taaron Egerton who beats Leonardo Dicaprio for his performance in Rocketman, the biopic inspired by Elton John. Once again, it’s not really a surprise, this type of performance often wins many prizes, like Rami Malek for Bohemian Rhapsody last year. Finally, it should be noted that Brad Pitt, who has not had a Golden Globes since The army of the 12 monkeys in 1996, won Best Supporting Actor in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. This comes to crown a very good year for him, since he is also the main actor of a film sadly shunned by the Golden Globes, the excellent Ad Astra. A little disappointment among the actresses, on the other hand, we regret that Scarlett Johansson lost to Renee Zellweger for the globe for best actress in a drama film.

On the side of the series, the prize list of the ceremony remains without surprise and comes to support the audacity of the Emmy Awards of a few months ago. The British television series flea bag triumphs again and dominates the prizes for best comedy series as well as best actress for Phoebe Waller Bridge. Same satisfaction for Chernobyl who brilliantly won the best mini-series and the best actor in a supporting role.

Netflix big loser

We will remember from this 77th edition of the Golden Globes the rout of the Netflix films. They leave with only one prize (awarded to the brilliant Laura Dern who wins her 4th Golden Globes for the best supporting female role in Marriage Story by Noah Baumach) despite 18 nominations. In the wake of the streaming giant, it is Martin Scorsese who is ultimately the big loser of the evening.
