The New & Improved Golden Globe Awards – 2024 Winners


“Hollywood roars back to life!” These were the electrifying words uttered by the resilient Golden Globes host, Jo Koy, that resonated with an audience hungry for the glitz and glamor of Tinsel Town. Despite a rocky start, this year’s awards ceremony emerged as a high-energy, feel-good spectacle, fueled by the charisma of the stars in attendance.

The Stars

The dazzling winners, including Kieran Culkin, Ali Wong, Emma Stone, Ayo Edebiri, Billie Eilish, and Cillian Murphy, injected the event with zest and panache. The evening’s momentum overcame the initial awkwardness of last-minute host Jo Koy’s presenting style, creating an atmosphere that was a stark contrast to the muted response he initially received.


The event cleverly paired presenters, featuring dynamic duos such as Dua Lipa and Elizabeth Banks, Keri Russell and Ray Romano, Andra Day and Jon Batiste, and the rare appearance of Kevin Costner alongside Barbie star America Ferrera. Heavyweights like Leonardo DiCaprio, Martin Scorsese, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Helen Mirren, Meryl Streep, Oprah, Jennifer Lawrence, Ryan Gosling, and Harrison Ford mingled with jittery newcomers, creating a star-studded affair.


The lively ambiance marked a dramatic shift from two years prior when the ceremony faced a boycott and TV broadcast cancellation over a diversity and ethics scandal involving the Golden Globes’ parent organization, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA).

Nolan Wins For Best Director

Jo Koy, who secured the hosting gig just weeks before the ceremony, seemed overwhelmed by the star-studded crowd. His initial nerves and avoidance of controversy stood in stark contrast to the infamous and unapologetic host, Ricky Gervais. Despite some awkward moments, the night saw Robert Downey Jr. winning Best Male Supporting Actor, Christopher Nolan claiming his first Golden Globe for Best Director, and Cillian Murphy accepting the award for Best Male Actor in a Motion Picture Drama.

Poor Things Wins Best Musical or Comedy!

Irish actor Murphy’s humor and acknowledgment of fellow Irish nominees added a touch of charm to the proceedings. The ceremony, free from sore losers, witnessed Jennifer Lawrence and Margot Robbie rejoicing in Emma Stone’s victory for Best Actress and Stone’s film, “Poor Things,” unexpectedly winning Best Picture – Musical or Comedy

Blackfoot Language

The night’s highlights also included Lily Gladstone’s historical win for Best Female Actor in a Motion Picture Drama, delivering a heartfelt speech in the Blackfoot language, and Christopher Nolan’s grand triumph with “Oppenheimer” receiving the prestigious Golden Globe for Best Picture, Drama.

In the end, the Hollywood comeback was not only about glamorous victories but also about unity, collaboration, and a celebration of cinematic excellence.

What Happened To The Golden Globe Awards?

The Golden Globes have been a rollercoaster of scandals and controversies! Back in 2010, the nominations of critically-panned movies like Burlesque and The Tourist fueled bribery rumors, with host Ricky Gervais even cracking jokes about it.

No Black Hollywood Foreign Press Members

Fast forward to 2021, and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), the organization behind the Golden Globes, found itself in hot water. The nominations faced backlash for snubbing well-received Black-led productions, and reports surfaced that none of the 87 HFPA members were Black. Corruption allegations flew as over 30 HFPA members were accused of enjoying lavish perks during a visit to the set of Emily in Paris.

The fallout was intense! HFPA president Philip Berk got the boot for a controversial email, and the HFPA announced plans for transformational change in May 2021. However, the plan faced massive boycotts from industry giants like Netflix, Amazon Studios, and numerous actors.

The backlash was no joke. A-listers like Scarlett Johansson and Mark Ruffalo criticized the HFPA, Tom Cruise returned trophies, and NBC pulled the plug on the 2022 broadcast.

Canadian Brendan Fraser Accuses HFPA President of Sexual Assault

But wait, there’s more! Brendan Fraser accused former HFPA president Philip Berk of sexual assault in 2003, leading to a boycott when Fraser was nominated in 2023.

The 2022 and 2023 Golden Globes were a shadow of their former selves, with no red carpet, media, or celebs in attendance in 2022. Jerrod Carmichael hosted the 2023 ceremony, acknowledging the HFPA’s lack of diversity and the absence of the previous year’s broadcast.

Fast forward to 2024, and the HFPA is no more! Eldridge Industries, with Dick Clark Productions, took over the Golden Globe assets, aiming to restore faith in the awards after a slew of scandals. The voting body for the 2024 awards comprises 300 journalists worldwide, with 47% female and 60% identifying as racially and ethnically diverse.
