Do Golden Globe wins translate into Oscars? Not so much

Do Golden Globe wins translate into Oscars? Not so much

When 2004's drama about white people solving racism, "Crash", won Best Picture at the 78th Academy Awards, it beat out the Ang Lee-directed tragic gay romance "Brokeback Mountain". The Mexican movie, which also took the prize for best director, is seen as an Oscar frontrunner in February.

One difference between the Golden Globes and other awards shows is that the Best Picture category is split into two sections: Best Drama and Best Comedy or Musical.

Both of these films were considered November studio blockbusters and had a much wider release than the other films in the categories such as "If Beale Street Could Talk" and "The Favourite", which perhaps accounts for this seemingly unusual distribution of awards. Focus Features, which is owned by Comcast, 1960s roadtrip movie Green Book was named best comedy movie.

Meanwhile, after getting some sleep, Gaga returned to her Instagram page to reiterate her gratitude to Bradley for casting her as the female lead in A Star Is Born and green-lighting Shallow, which she co-wrote with Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando, and Andrew Wyatt.

The production won best original song for "Shallow", the heart-wrenching tune performed by Cooper, 44, and Gaga in the movie.

Earlier in the evening, a beaming Malek won Best Actor for his role in the movie.

King is up for the Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures, as are the producers of Black Panther, BlacKkKlansman, Crazy Rich Asians, The Favourite, Green Book, A Quiet Place, Roma, A Star Is Born and Vice. The event also has awards for TV shows and just like the films, we didn't get too many surprises here either. While Mahershala won the Best Actor in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture trophy, Peter Farrelly, Nick Vallelonga, and Brian Currie earned Best Screenplay (Motion Picture) honour for the project. Glenn Close was visibly surprised when she was selected for the Best Actress - Drama.

In television, the big winners were Cold War spy thriller "The Americans", limited series "The Assassination of Gianni Versace", and new Netflix comedy "The Kominsky Method". Rachel Brosnahan picked up her second successive Golden Globe for her role as Miriam Maisel in the Marvelous Mrs Maisel. The award show is one of the major ones in the world and attracts a wide range of Hollywood stars around the country.
