With Hollywood finally picking itself back up from multiple strikes and the Golden Globes embracing the future after several years of upheaval, the Golden Globes 2024 had an opportunity to mark a fresh start on many fronts. Honoring many of the biggest films and shows of last year, from Barbie and Oppenheimer to the final season of Succession, this was the first major awards show of the season—and the first chance for many top contenders to test out their red-carpet glam and, if they’re lucky, their acceptance speeches.
As the dust settles, we know a few things for sure: Oppenheimer seems to be the frontrunner in several categories, having taken home the most awards of the night, including best picture (drama), best director (Christopher Nolan), and best actor (Cillian Murphy). Barbie, its partner in box office dominance, had a more muted night, taking home best original song and the newly-created “cinematic and box office achievement” prize but missing out in the bigger categories. The TV side of the awards were ruled, unsurprisingly, by The Bear and Succession, the most decorated comedy and drama, respectively.
VF was on hand to record everything that happened on Globes night, from host Jo Koy’s poorly received monologue to Lily Gladstone’s emotional best actress speech. Scroll down to relive the night from start to finish—or, because it’s a chronological feed, from finish to start. (Memento director Nolan would approve!)
