In the 76th Golden Globes ceremony, there were plenty of upsets including, the biggest was that the Freddie Mercury biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody" took best picture, drama, over Bradley Cooper's heavily favoured "A Star is Born" and Glenn Close won over Lady Gaga for best actress.
But the real winner, despite the upsets, was Netflix as it dominated the ceremony with high profile wins for “Roma” and taking home a best TV comedy prize for “The Kominsky Method.”
Unlike the Oscars, the Globes separates dramas from musicals and comedies, honouring the best in both film and television.
Netflix’s impressive night signals a changing landscape in Hollywood and comes as traditional Studios are being overtaken by streaming giants such as Hulu and Crave TV.
As Silicone Valley continues to challenge Hollywood, Netflix also celebrated a best actor in a TV comedy win for Michael Douglas for his work as an aging acting coach in “The Kominsky Method.” Netflix’s hit “Bodyguard” captured a best actor in a TV drama prize for Richard Madden.
