Netflix has won more than half of the 2021 Golden Globe TV awards
The streaming giant, still ahead of its competition in terms of number of subscribers, won six of 11 Golden Globes for TV shows, dominating the dramatic categories thanks to “The Crown” and the limited series, anthology series or films made for the television category with “The Queen’s Gambit”.
At the end of the evening, “The crown“had won a total of four awards – one for Best Television Series – Drama, while the other three went to actors Emma Corrin, Josh O’Connor and Gillian Anderson.
“The Queen’s GambitNetflix’s hit miniseries won top prize for its category, as well as star Anya Taylor-Joy.
However, this is no surprise, as the streamer won 20 nominations in TV categories alone, meaning they were competing against themselves for multiple awards.
Corrin was one of five nominated actresses in her category, which included three other nods to Netflix: Olivia Colman (“The Crown”), Sarah Paulson (“Ratched”) and Laura Linney (“Ozark”). The fifth and final nomination went to Jodie Comer of the BBC’s “Killing Eve”.
“The Crown,” “Ratched” and “Ozark” also won additional nominations which were beaten by other Netflix stars.
Likewise, “The Queen’s Gambit” and star Taylor-Joy, 24, beat fellow Netflix “Unorthodox” in both winning categories.
Despite Netflix’s dominance in awards, other streamers were able to join the board as well.
Apple TV + won his first Golden Globe for the lead performance of Jason Sudeikis in the comedy “Ted Lasso”.
Finally, BBC One and Amazon“Small Ax” won an award for the performance of former “Star Wars” John Boyega.
Other streaming services – Disney +, Hulu, and HBO Max – were excluded from the TV categories, as were AMC, NBC, FX, and BBC America.
As expected, “Schitt’s Creek” won two comedy awards, while HBO notched a victory for Mark Ruffalo, star of the “I Know This Much Is True” miniseries.
On the film side, Netflix is also doing well, winning four of the 14 possible awards.
“Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” and “I Care a Lot” won awards for performances by Principal Chadwick boseman and Rosamund Pike, respectively while Aaron Sorkin won an award for the screenplay behind “The Trail of the Chicago 7”, as expected.
Finally, songwriter Diane Warren won an award alongside Laura Pausini and Niccolò Agliardi for the song “lo si (Seen)” from the movie “The Life Ahead”.
