80th Golden Globes Awards: Winners And Snubs, Breakdown

The 80th Golden Globe Awards ceremony took place on January 10, 2023, at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California. The ceremony was aired live on NBC and Peacock, hosted by Jerrod Carmichael. The prestigious awards show, “Golden Globes Award,” finally returned to television this year. Last year, NBC didn’t opt to air the 79th edition of the Globes in the wake of mounting criticism surrounding the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (the organization that hosts the event). It was alleged that the HFPA contained no black members and engaged in unethical conduct and financial malpractice. That sparked a boycott from the whole entertainment industry. This led the HFPA to lay out several reforms, which included banning members from accepting gifts from the studios and adding 103 international voters. They also added six black members to their core group. This year’s Golden Globes are produced by Dick Clark Productions and Jesse Collins Entertainment. This year, the 80th edition saw an increase in the number of awards handed out. We will now discuss the nominees and winners of each category one by one.

Best Motion Picture (Drama)

Five films were nominated in this category, which includes James Cameron’s “Avatar: The Way of Water,” Baz Luhrmann’s “Elvis,” Steven Spielberg’s “The Fabelmans,” Todd Field’s “Tár,” and Tom Cruise’s starrer “Top Gun: Maverick.” “The Fabelmans” was awarded as the winner. This film was a front-runner to win the Oscars when it won people’s choice awards at the Toronto International Film Festival. But later, it missed wins in almost all critic circles during the award season. It was even ignored in BAFTA nominations. But this Golden Globe win will give “The Fabelmans” the much-needed boost to regain its front-runner status.

Best Motion Picture (Musical Or Comedy)

Five films were nominated in this category. Martin McDonagh’s “The Banshees of Damien Chazelle, Rian Johnson’s “Glass Onion: A Knives Out “Everything, Everywhere, At, and “Triangle of Sadness.” The favorite to win this category was “Everything, Everywhere, At Once,” as it swept almost all the critics’ circles. But the Globe is awarded to the “Banshees of Inisherin”. It is now one of the front-runners to win Best Picture at the 95th Oscars.

Best Director

The five nominated directors were Steven Spielberg (“The Fabelmans”), James Cameron (“Avatar: The Way of Water”), Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert (“Everything, Everywhere, All at Once”), Baz Luhrmann (“Elvis”), and Martin McDonagh (“The Banshees of Inisherin”). In this award season, we have seen that the Daniel brothers have swept most of the critic circles. But that did not repeat at the Globes, as they went for world-famous director Steven Spielberg. With this win, Spielberg is back again as the front-runner to win Best Director at the upcoming Oscars.

Best Screenplay

Screenwriters nominated for Best Screenplay were Martin McDonagh for “The Banshees of Inisherin,” Todd Field for “Tár,” Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert for “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” Sarah Polley for “Women Talking,” Steven Spielberg and Tony Kushner for “The Fabelmans.” Daniel brothers have got the most acclaim throughout this award season. But the Globe is awarded to Martin McDonagh for his exceptional writing in “The Banshees of Inisherin.”

Best Original Score

This category saw no such upset. Multiple times a Golden Globe nominee and winner, Justin Hurwitz won it for his exceptional composition in “Babylon.” Other nominees were Carter Burwell for “The Banshees of Inisherin,” Alexandre Desplat for “Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio,” Hildur Gunadóttir for “Women Talking,” and John Williams for “The Fabelmans.”

Best Original Song

This is the category that has been buzzing and trending on Twitter and on other social media platforms throughout the day, even more than the heavyweight categories like Best Picture and Best Director. “Naatu Naatu” from “RRR” pulled off an unthinkable mammoth win, being the first ever Indian and first ever South Asian song to win Best Original Song. This was only the fifth time that a non-English song won the Golden Globes. “Naatu Naatu” composer M.M. Keeravani created history when he beat out the likes of Lady Gaga (“Top Gun Maverick”) and Rihanna (“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”). This win was extremely necessary to catch the eyeballs of the Oscar voters, as “RRR” is competing for Best Picture and Best Director without India’s official submission.

Best Non-English Language Film

This category saw the biggest surprise of the evening when “Argentina, 1985” from Argentina beat out heavyweight contenders like Germany’s “All Quiet on the Western Front,” South Korea’s “Decision to Leave,” India’s “RRR,” and Belgium’s “Close.” Although it is not likely that this win is going to repeat at the Oscars, Judging by the Oscar shortlist and BAFTA longlist, “All Quiet on the Western Front” is clearly the front-runner in this category for the Oscars.

Acting Categories

There were four acting categories and five nominees in each category. Austin Butler for “Elvis” knocked out Brendan Fresar to win the Best Actor in a Drama. Fresar’s chance of winning the Oscar is now very slim. Cate Blanchett wins Best Actress in a Drama for her groundbreaking performance in “Tár.” Although Blanchett was not there in person to receive the award, Colin Farrell continues to sweep Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy for his exceptional performance in “The Banshees of Inisherin.” Michelle Yeoh pulls off a surprising win as Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy for her wonderful performance in “Everything, Everywhere, All at Once.”
