It’s rough moment in history to throw an awards show: Less than a week into the dawn of a new decade, America is potentially on the brink of war and Australia is quite literally on fire … so maybe the travails of a bunch of Hollywood types vying for a clutch of shiny statuettes don’t amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world? Perhaps the collective anxiety and distraction over world events was part of the reason the 2020 Golden Globes ceremony felt so lifeless. It could also be that we simply have awards-show fatigue, or Ricky Gervais’ hosting style, which walked the line between bored and downright contemptuous.

Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood and surprise underdog 1917 were the big film winners of the night, while Fleabag and Succession deservedly (if a little predictably) cleaned up on the television front. Here are our picks for the best, worst and who-even-knows from a night of slurred speeches, awkward presenter banter, and rare, glittering moments of honest-to-God earnestness.
