Golden Globes 2023: Spielberg, Austin Butler and Cate Blanchett surprise in the return of the awards

Nobody knew what could happen. After the controversies unleashed in the last edition (which caused the gala not to be broadcast by NBC), it was not very clear what the celebration of the Golden Globes 2023 would be like. Jerrod Carmichael as a presenter and an apparent facelift, it looked like things were going to be very different this time around. However, the event has not been more than a Déjà vu from the Golden Globes before the pandemic.

The night began with what we already knew: absences. Most of Hollywood’s most significant stars decided to attend the gala, making clear their forgiveness towards the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA, organizer of the awards). But many others They did not attend the gala for what could happenexcusing himself in common places that nobody convinced.

Golden Globes 2023: Spielberg, Austin Butler and Cate Blanchett surprise in the return of the awards

One of the biggest absences was Brendan Frasernominated who lost in the Best Actor in Drama category to Austin Butler, protagonist of Elvis who was crowned as one of the great surprises of the night. He was not there either cate blanchett, who won Best Actress in a Drama for her role in Tár. Not even zendayathe actress of the moment who won Best Television Actress in Drama for Euphoria, appeared at the ceremony.

Who was present in body is Steven Spielberg. The ET director, who at 76 is still more active than ever, was one of the stars of the night. He won the award for Best Director and his movie The Fabelmanswas crowned Best Motion Picture Drama.

He also highlighted the role of The Banshees of Inisherina film that rose in almost all the categories of Comedy / Musical (Best Actor for Colin Farrell, Best Screenplay for Martin McDonagh and Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy). Undoubtedly, both this film and Spielberg’s are declared the clear favorites for the Oscar race.

The White Lotus, the series everyone is talking about

The series categories were, again, Golden Globes highlights. For some time now, the great events that movies still involve are giving way to series at these ceremonies, and this time it was not going to be different.

It was expected, after Game of Thrones reigned as “the goose of the Golden Globes” for so many years, that House of the Dragon will take the witness. And so it was in a certain sense, because he took the statuette to Best Drama Series. But there the coronation of her ended, since Zendaya once again rose as Best Actress in a Series (stealing Emma D’Arcy a more than sound award).

Abbott Elementary was the most laureatemanaging to win the Best Musical and Comedy Television Series and with two more awards: Best TV Supporting Actor for Tyler James Williams and Best Actress for Quinta Brunson.

But the series of the night, without a doubt, was The White Lotus. the fiction of HBO It already triumphed with its first season, and it has done so again with a second that has left it with two awards (Best Miniseries, although there is controversy about whether or not it is) and Best Supporting Actress for Jennifer Coolidge. In addition, it has the approval of the public, which has raised it as one of the most watched series on the platform in recent months.

Evan Peters, the big star of the night

We didn’t know if they were going to be able to reward him or if, as has finally happened with Jenna Ortega in Wednesday, he was going to stay with the simple nomination. But in the end they have dared. Evan Peters has won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Miniseries or Movie for Television thanks to his spectacular role in Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story.

The Netflix original series has been one of the most viewed on the platform in the last year, and the highlight of it has undoubtedly been the effort on the part of Peters when it comes to putting himself in the shoes of the murderous psychopath. Now, the HFPA has recognized this. Also, its showrunner Ryan Murphy has been awarded the Honorary Carol Burnett Award.
