During the presentation of the Golden Globes on the night from Sunday to Monday (Dutch time), The Crown cashed in four of the six nominations, including for best drama series. The presentation took place at two different locations: presenter Tina Fey was in New York, colleague Amy Poehler in Los Angeles.
Streaming service Netflix, where the series about the British royal family can be seen, is the big winner of the evening with ten prizes. In addition to “Charles and Diana,” aka Josh O’Connor and Emma Corrin, Gillian Anderson also won a Golden Globe for her performance as Margaret Thatcher, as best actress in a supporting role.
Nomadland won the Golden Globe for best drama film. Borat Subsequent Movie Film is the best film in the best musical or comedy category.
The Danish-Dutch film Another Round , co-produced by the Dutch Topkapi Films, had a chance to win the frame for best foreign film, but did not win. The prize went to Minari, about a Korean family who moves to the US state of Arkansas.
The Golden Globes ceremony is normally scheduled for January, but the event was postponed due to the corona virus. Because many cinemas are or have been closed, it is not mandatory this time for a film to have a premiere on the silver screen. Films that were immediately released on streaming services can also receive a nomination. This rule is also applied at the presentation of the Oscars on April 25.
