Fueled by 34 nominations, including 17 for movies, Netflix entered the Jan. 5 Golden Globes Awards in Los Angeles a heavy favorite to take home the hardware.
In the end, the SVOD behemoth walked off with just two Globes: Laura Dern’s win for Marriage Story and Olivia Colman starring in the third season of “The Crown.”
Hulu picked up awards for “Ramy” and “The Act,” while Amazon Prime Video won for “Fleabag.” Apple TV+’s high-profile “The Morning Show” failed to win despite several nominations.
Netflix has high hopes for next month’s Academy Awards, notably with Martin Scorsese’s $150 million mobster movie The Irishman, starring Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci.
Yet the movie lost out at the Globes to Sam Mendes’ World War I trench warfare film, 1917, from Universal Pictures.
