The 76th Golden Globe Awards, the year’s first major awards ceremony leading up the to the Oscars has just concluded, and it was “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Green Book” that emerged victorious, winning Best Motion Picture Drama and Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy respectively.

Rhapsody’s win was slightly a surprise: in spite of the fact that the film was a massive boxoffice hit, so far grossing $743 million worldwide, and Rami Malek’s bravura performance earning near universal praise, the film itself was not as beloved by film critics.

It was also a good night for another leading oscar contender, “Roma” which won Best Motion Picture – Foreign Language and Best Director and Mexican director Alfonso Cuaron.

Netflix is sure to have an increase in subscription after having had a great showing in Sunday night’s awards show: in addition to Roma’s trophies, it also won for Chuck Lorre’s comedy “The Kominsky Method.”

Altogether, there were a total of 14 trophies in film categories and 11 in television that were handed out by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which comprised of voting 93 members.
