The winners of the 2020 Golden Globes were crowned on Sunday night. Comedian Ricky Gervais hosted the 77th annual ceremony, which featured a handful of surprises.

Voted on by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), the Golden Globes honor achievement in both television and film. The awards also kick off Hollywood’s awards season, which will culminate next month with the Oscars on February 9.

If the Golden Globes are indeed precursors to the Oscars (it’s debatable), director Sam Mendes and the cast and crew of 1917 should be feeling pretty good about themselves. Mendes won Best Director of a Motion Picture and 1917 won Best Motion Picture — Drama, beating out Netflix’s trio of frontrunners: Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Story, Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, and The Two Popes.

Elsewhere in the winners’ circle were first-time Golden Globe winners Awkwafina and Taron Egerton, with Awkwafina taking home Best Actress in a Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy for The Farewell, and Egerton winning Best Actor in a Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy for Rocketman. Joaquin Phoenix won Best Actor in a Motion Picture — Drama for Joker, and Reneé Zellweger won Best Actress in a Motion Picture — Drama for Judy.

In the television categories, one of the big stories headed into the night was that Apple had snagged a major nomination for The Morning Show, a centerpiece series of its new streaming service, AppleTV+. But the phone, watch, and computer purveyor was shut out in the end. Phoebe Waller-Bridge and her comedy Fleabag continued their awards show dominance with wins for Best Actress in a Comedy Series and Best Television Series – Comedy.

HBO’s Succession dominated the drama categories, with the show winning Best Television Series — Drama and star Brian Cox winning Best Actor. And Chernobyl also did well, with two wins: Best Limited Series or TV Movie, and Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Limited Series or TV Movie for Stellan Skarsgård.
