Now that the Golden Globes are over it’s time to take a look at the winners, the surprise, and the snubs. Who went home with a trophy?

After the un-televised ceremony last year, which happened due to a lot of incidents around the Hollywood Foreign Press Academy, the Golden Globes are back. After a bunch of changes at the institute and adding more than a hundred new members, the Golden Globes are back.

On December 12, 2022, the HFPA announced the Film and Television categories nominees, roughly a month before the winner ceremony took place on January 10, 2023.

For this article we focus on the Film categories and without further ado, let’s take a look at the winners and biggest snubs and surprises of the night:

DRAMA FILM

The Fabelmans

Nominees: Avatar: The Way of Water, Elvis, The Fabelmans, Top Gun: Maverick, Tár

Winner: The Fabelmans

After The Fabelmans struggled a bit over the last few weeks, with it missing key appearances on the BAFTA shortlist, people started to look for alternatives in this category. So, it was almost a surprise that Steven Spielberg’s film won this category over candidates like Top Gun: Maverick and Elvis

COMEDY FILM

The Banshees of Inisherin

Nominees: Babylon, Everything Everywhere All at Once, Glass Onion, Triangle of Sadness, The Banshees of Inisherin

Winner: The Banshees of Inisherin

This was a close race between Everything Everywhere All at Once and The Banshees of Inisherin, but with the incredible 8 nominations for the latter, it probably shouldn’t have been as big of a surprise that it wins this category.

DRAMA ACTOR

Elvis

Nominees: Austin Butler – Elvis, Brendan Fraser – The Whale, Hugh Jackman – The Son, Bill Nighy – Living, Jeremy Pope – The Inspection

Winner: Austin Butler – Elvis

Butler’s win here was most awards pundits’ prediction and could set him on a path to a potential Oscar Win. It will be interesting to see if he can repeat his win at the SAG Awards.

DRAMA ACTRESS

Nominees: Ana De Armas – Blonde, Cate Blanchett – Tár, Olivia Colman – Empire of Light, Viola Davis – The Woman King, Michelle Williams – The Fabelmans

Winner: Cate Blanchett – Tár

With Michelle Yeoh competing in another category, this win comes as no surprise.

COMEDY ACTOR

The Banshees of Inisherin

RELATED: GLORIOUS GOLDEN GLOBES 2023 FILM WINNER PREDICTIONS: DECEMBER 2022

Nominees: Diego Calva – Babylon, Daniel Craig – Glass Onion, Adam Driver – White Noise, Colin Farell – The Banshees of Inisherin, Ralph Fiennes – The Menu

Winner: Colin Farell – The Banshees of Inisherin

The same can be said here, as Austin Butler and Brendan Fraser competed in another category, this was Farrell’s to win.

COMEDY ACTRESS

Everything Everywhere All at Once

Nominees: Anya Taylor-Joy – The Menu, Lesley Manville – Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris, Margot Robbie – Babylon, Emma Thompson – Good Luck to you Leo Grande, Michelle Yeoh – Everything Everywhere All at Once

Winner: Michelle Yeoh – Everything Everywhere All at Once

This win comes as no surprise, but is a great one nonetheless.

SUPPORTING ACTOR

Everything Everywhere All At Once

Nominees: Brendon Gleeson – The Banshees of Inisherin, Barry Keoghan – The Banshees of Inisherin, Ke Huy Quan – Everything Everywhere All at Once, Eddie Redmayne – The Good Nurse, Brad Pitt – Babylon

Winner: Ke Huy Quan – Everything Everywhere All at Once

Another very easy-to-predict win, but such a deserving and great one. Quan also held a great speech.

SUPPORTING ACTRESS

BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER

Nominees: Angela Basset – Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Kerry Condon – The Banshees of Inisherin, Jamie Lee Curtis – Everything Everywhere All at Once, Dolly De Leon –Triangle of Sadness, Carey Mulligan – She Said

Winner: Angela Basset – Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

This is one of the most surprising wins of the night as the category was very crowded and multiple nominees had a strong narrative behind them. But this win puts Basset in a very good place for a potential Oscar win, as she is also expected to win at the SAG Awards. I’m also proud to say that I correctly predicted her win.

DIRECTOR

Steven Spielberg

Nominees: James Cameron – Avatar: The Way of Water, Daniels (Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan) – Everything Everywhere All at Once, Baz Luhrman – Elvis, Martin McDonagh – The Banshees of Inisherin, Steven Spielberg – The Fabelmans

Winner: Steven Spielberg – The Fabelmans

This was also a wide open category, with people looking for alternatives for Spielberg as The Fabelman’s struggle started, but it looks like the Globes didn’t care as Spielberg took home this trophy.

SCREENPLAY

The Banshees of Inisherin

Nominees: Everything Everywhere All at Once, Tár, The Banshees of Inisherin, The Fabelmans, Women Talking

Winner: The Banshees of Inisherin

This was the second win for the film that everyone expected, the only surprise was that it also won Comedy/Musical even though one could have maybe expected that considering it was poised to win Screenplay.

ANIMATED FILM

Pinocchio

RELATED: GOLDEN GLOBES AWARDS 2022: THE COMPLETE WINNERS LIST

Nominees: Inu-Oh, Marcel the Shell with Shoes On, Turning Red, Pinocchio, Puss in Boots: The Last Wish

Winner: Pinocchio

This win also comes as no surprise, but it is a very deserving one.

FOREIGN FILM

Argentina, 1985

Nominees: All Quiet on the Western Front, Argentina, 1985, Close, Decision to Leave, RRR

Winner: Argentina, 1985

Probably the night’s biggest surprise happened in the Foreign Film category as underdog Argentina, 1985 beat frontrunners and huge Oscar contenders like RRR, All Quiet on the Western Front and Decision to Leave.

SCORE

Babylon - movie still

RELATED: GLORIOUS GOLDEN GLOBES 2023 TV WINNERS PREDICTIONS: DECEMBER 2023

Nominees: Babylon, Pinocchio, The Banshees of Inisherin, The Fabelmans, Women Talking

Winner: Babylon

Another expected, but highly deserving win, that makes composer Justin Hurwitz a 4x time Golden Globe winner.

SONG

RRR film

Nominees: Carolina – Where the Crawdads Sing, Ciao Papa – Pinocchio, Hold My Hand – Top Gun: Maverick, Lift Me Up – Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Naatu Naatu – RRR

Winner: Naatu Naatu – RRR

With the sheer love for RRR, this win was very well in the cards, but it had strong competitors. Who’s ready to see the choreography performed at the Oscars? (this has to happen, right?!)
