Golden Globe Awards 2020
Laura Dern got to pay tribute to divorce lawyers with her role in Netflix's "Marriage Story."
"Long long overdue," she said.
It won her a Golden Globe Sunday night and brought more prestige to the streaming giant.
A stop motion film won for best animated film.
"Missing Link" bested odds on favorites "Frozen 2," “The Lion King” and “Toy Story 4” to take home the Golden Globe.
The film is centered around a Sasquatch who travels to meet his Yeti family.
Quentin Tarantino dedicated his trophy to the "dean of screenwriters," Robert Bolt, who penned "Doctor Zhivago."
In typical Tarantino hyper-talk, he made his "Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood" star Margot Robbie laugh and blush when he gushed over her goodness. He also mentioned his latest movie's stars, Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio, and thanked "little" Julia Butters, is the child actress who plays Trudi Fraser in the movie.
Lastly, the director thanked his model wife Daniella Pick, who's "pregnant with my very first child." Tarantino mentioned she was currently in Tel Aviv, where the two are renting a home together.
The couple married in 2018 in their Beverly Hills home, and Pick's pregnancy was announced in late August.
The best actor in a drama TV series award went to Brian Cox for his role in "Succession."
Cox, who next year will have been in the industry for 60 years, said he was shocked at the win and even apologized to his fellow nominees for snagging the trophy.
He thanked the showrunner, cast and his wife for putting up with him for all these years.
The series tracks the lives of the Roy family as they contemplate their future once their aging father (played by Cox) begins to step back from the media and entertainment conglomerate they control.
Good night so far for HBO.
Kate McKinnon, presenting The Carol Burnett Award to Ellen DeGeneres at the Golden Globes, read off a list of why she is thankful for the talk show host, which jokingly ranged from two pairs of Stan Smith sneakers, to the more serious "desire to bring everyone together by laughing about the things we all have in common."
The "Saturday Night Live" star also listed "my best collared shirts," and the inspiration behind her own bravery to come out.
"She risked her life and entire career," McKinnon said of DeGeneres, who came out on her sitcom, "Ellen," in 1997.
"Thank you Ellen for giving me a shot, a shot at a good life and thank you for the sweater with the picture of the baby goat on it," McKinnon said.
DeGeneres took the stage to thank McKinnon, send thoughts to Australia for their bushfires, and to thank Burnett herself, who she had been sitting next to throughout dinner.
"I knew coming in I would win," she lightheartedly joked of the honor.
Her wife Portia de Rossi looked on smiling as DeGeneres joked she'd make a 25-minute speech starting with her birth and jumping to her sitcom.
"After that I got a talk show and I was able to be myself and that was 17 years ago," she said.
Saying now people know the real Ellen, she joked, "I couldn't have done it without my husband Mark." She then told their "children," "Rupert and Fiona go to bed."
"All I ever wanted to do was make people feel good and laugh," she said, adding that she's "so so grateful" to be a part of the power of television" if it helps others go out and be good, go out and be kind.
Not only is "Parasite" one of the year's most talked about films, but now it's a Golden Globe Award winner.
Writer, director and producer Bong Joon-ho accepted the award for best foreign language film for the South Korean film about a poor family scheming to work for a wealthy family.
Through an interpreter the director elicited cheers when he said "Once you overcome the one inch tall barrier of subtitles you will be introduced to so many more amazing films."
Phoebe Waller-Bridge continues her awards season winning streak for her hit Amazon show, "Fleabag."
Saying thank you, she called the actual Golden Globe statue "heavy" and "cool."
Clad in a sparkly suit, Waller-Bridge also thanked her costar, "hot priest," Andrew Scott, her crew and her agent.
Russell Crowe was awarded best actor in a TV series, limited series or TV movie for "The Loudest Voice," but he wasn't there to collect it.
Instead Crowe was in his native Australia protecting his family from the fires.
He sent ahead a statement in case he won, which presenter Jennifer Aniston read for him.
"Make no mistake the tragedy unfolding in Australia is climate change based. We need to act based on science, move our global work force to renewable energy and respect our planet for the unique and amazing place it is. That way we all have a future. Thank you."
