Netflix dominates the awards show, but Nomadland becomes Oscar favorite

Streaming service Netflix collected more than half of all awards at the event last night. This applies particularly to the series area, where The Queen's Gambit and The Crown Golden Globes won.

Oscar season is slowly approaching the hot phase

In the film sector, however, the main prizes went to others. Amazons Borat 2 won the Globe for Best Comedy, while ChloƩ Zhao's Nomadland won the Best Drama Award. Zhao, who will next be responsible for Marvel's blockbuster The Eternals, was also the second woman in history to receive the Golden Globe for Best Director. Nomadland is thus strengthening its role as a favorite in this year's Oscar race.

The 78th Golden Globe Awards ceremony took place virtually and was moderated by the tried and tested hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. On March 15, 2021, the Oscar season will enter its final phase with the announcement of the GOLDMOVIES for the Academy Awards, before reaching its late climax on the night of April 25th to 26th with the Academy Awards ceremony
