Golden Globes 2024 live: Awards show sees huge ratings boost with controversial host

The Golden Globes returned with a blowout, star-studded ceremony on Sunday (7 January) night.

The annual, Beverly Hills-based awards show has been obscured in recent years after a 2021 Los Angeles Times investigation revealed that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (the awards’ voting body) did not have a single Black member.

However, this year, the Globes were back in their usual Sunday slot on CBS and hoping to regain viewers. Broadcast live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel, A-listers including Taylor Swift, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence and Kylie Jenner brought some much-needed stardust to the beleaguered show.

Oppenheimer, Barbie, Poor Things and Anatomy of a Fall were among the films to earn multiple awards. Christopher Nolan won his first Globe following six nominations while Barbie was surprisingly pipped to Best Picture in the Musical/Comedy category Poor Things.

Meanwhile, Beef, The Bear and Succession were the big winners in the TV categories.

Hello and welcome! I’m The Independent’s US Culture News editor based in Los Angeles and I’ll be guiding you through Sunday’s ceremony in person, on the ground.

My tuxedo has been rented and I’m extremely excited to see what this 2024 ceremony has in store. It promises to be a very important show for the Globes after its aforementioned, 2021 PR disaster – so I’m expecting all the stops to be pulled out.

Thanks for joining us!

Friday 5 January 2024 20:02 , Tom Murray

This year’s crop of contenders, revealed last month, was announced by Cedric the Entertainer and That ‘70s Show actor Wilmer Valderrama – one year after a huge membership shake-up that saw the ceremony’s voting body, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), improve diversity among its members.

Films in contention for trophies at the 2024 ceremony include Barbie, which leads the pack with eight followed by Oppenheimer (eight), Killers of the Flower Moon and Poor Things (seven each).

Meanwhile, in the TV categories, Succession is the most nominated series, with a total of nine, followed by The Bear and Only Murders in the Building, which have five apiece.

Taylor Swift may be in attendance at the Golden Globes on Sunday as her concert film, Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour, has been nominated in the new Cinematic and Box Office Achievement category. The Grammy winner is up against Greta Gerwig’s Barbie after making $250 million in box office sales globally.

However, the singer reportedly won’t be making her red carpet debut with her partner Travis Kelce. The Kansas City Chiefs tight end will be in Los Angeles for his game against the Los Angeles Chargers, which clashes with the ceremony.

Category decision for Netflix’s May December leaves fans baffled

Friday 5 January 2024 22:55 , Tom Murray

Todd Haynes’s Netflix film May December secured four nominations at this year’s Golden Globes.

However, fans who had seen the movie were shocked to find that the drama starring Natalie Portman and Julianne Moore had been nominated in the comedy category.

The film follows television star Elizabeth (Portman) preparing for the role of Gracie (Moore), a woman who was at the centre of a fictional child-rape scandal 20 years prior. Charles Melton plays Joe Yoo, who was 13 when he started his relationship with 36-year-old Gracie.

Chris Rock’s hosting advice to Jo Koy

Saturday 6 January 2024 02:50 , Tom Murray

Ahead of Golden Globes debut on Sunday, first-time host Jo Koy – who was only given two weeks’ notice about the gig – has revealed the advice Chris Rock gave him.

Comedian Rock has hosted the Oscars several times, most recently in 2022 when Will Smith infamously slapped him on stage.

Koy told The Hollywood Reporter that Rock told him to “be in the moment” and “don’t worry about costume change”.

“Be on the side of the stage, watch the show and be ready,” Rock apparently added, “if something happens, you’re ready; if you need to write a joke, you’re ready”.

Who is Jo Koy?

For previous Golden Globes hosts, a couple of months of preparation before the main event was standard.

Comedian Jo Koy didn’t quite have the same luxury, as he only got the gig two weeks ago – and it’s been a “crash course in hosting” so far.

He’s been a comic since the Nineties, and has over two million fans following him on Instagram. But in case Koy is a new face to you, Annabel Nugent has the full low-down on the man behind the mic:

Yes, we care about who gets to go home with a statuette at the end of the ceremony – but one of the most exciting aspects of watching an awards ceremony is seeing how the celebrities dress for the red carpet.

Why were the 2022 Golden Globes boycotted by major stars?

Sunday 7 January 2024 20:00 , Nicole Vassell

Up until 2023, the Golden Globe Awards were run by a parent organisation called the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA).

However, in 2021 a Los Angeles Times exposé accused the HFPA of a lack of diversity in its voting membership as well as “ethical lapses” in its business conduct. At the time, the organisation did not have a single Black member.

It was accused of a “culture of corruption”, where companies were allegedly able to buy nominations or wins.

Tom Cruise and Scarlett Johansson condemned the HFPA (Getty)

As a result, more than 100 public relations firms announced they would no longer work with the Globes, and stars such as Tom Cruise and Scarlett Johansson condemned the HFPA. Cruise handed back his three trophies and Johannsson urged a boycott and recalled facing “sexist questions and remarks by certain HFPA members that bordered on sexual harassment”.

The broadcast for 2022 was cancelled and the awards went ahead without any big stars in attendance to present or collect the prizes.

In June 2023, California’s attorney general approved a plan to dissolve the Hollywood Foreign Press Association entirely – a radical move which many hope is a good indicator for the future of diversity and fairness conversations in entertainment going forward.

In this important return for the Globes following its race controversy of 2021, some people were wondering whether the stars would show up.

DiCaprio is here, Jennifer Aniston, Margot Robbie, Billie Eilish, Jennifer Lawrence – the list goes on. So far so good for this reformed ceremony.

Why is May December nominated for Best Comedy?

Monday 8 January 2024 00:49 , Tom Murray

The red carpet hosts have one question for the cast of May December: Is it a comedy?

It’s a question a lot of people have asked since Todd Haynes’s melodrama was nominated in the Musical/Comedy category.

While there are certainly moments of black comedy throughout the movie, people were shocked to see it competing against more clear-cut comedies such as The Holdovers and American Fiction.

Producer Will Ferrell, along with his star Natalie Portman, appeared awkward when the category issue was raised.

“It depends on your mood,” Ferrell answered. “There are some very comedic moments and some not-so-comedic moments. And that’s called life.”

“I think it is a melodrama with comedic elements,” Portman said. “There are certainly a lot of funny moments.”
