Snubs and Surprises at the 2024 Golden Globes

Mr. Nimbus | 01/07/2024

Many of awards at the 2024 Golden Globes went exactly as expected. From the moment the new award for cinematic and box office achievement was announced, it was a foregone conclusion that Barbie would win. (Some Swifties thought Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour might pull an upset, but it was not to be.)

Likewise, no one was surprised that Billie Eilish and Finneas won the award for best original song for their contribution to Barbie, “What Was I Made For?” The hypnotic ballad is on the Oscar shortlist and is the front-winner to win that award on March 10. Eilish and Finneas won the Globe two years ago for writing the title song from the James Bond film No Time to Die and went on to win in the Oscar as well.

But, as always, there were some snubs and surprises along the way. Poor Things bested Barbie for best motion picture – musical or comedy, which means if the Globes had not added the new cinematic and box office achievement award, Barbie would have won just one Globe.

Oppenheimer won five Globes, the most by any film since La La Land swept seven awards seven years ago. Barbie, Poor Things, Anatomy of a Fall and The Holdovers each won two.

The top winner on the TV side was HBO’s Succession, with four awards, followed by FX’s The Bear and Netflix’s Beef, with three awards each.

Emmy-winning producing duo Glenn Weiss and Ricky Kirshner of White Cherry Entertainment served as executive-producing showrunners of the 2024 Golden Globes. Weiss also directed.

Penske Media Corporation, Billboard’s parent company, is a part-owner of dick clark productions and has a partnership with Eldridge.
