Golden Globes 2019: list of winners

The 2019 Golden Globes were awarded last Sunday and there was more than a few surprise wins and important records

Golden Globes 2019: list of winners

The Golden Globes kick off the Hollywood award season, and given the results here, it’s safe to say that nothing is a sure thing. 

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse took Best animated feature film, an incredible feat given its stiff competition. 

Olivia Colman walked away with Best actress in a musical/comedy, and Christian Bale won in the male category - two big wins for British talent.

Firm favourite A Star is Born was largely snubbed, winning just the one award for Best Song. Lead actress Lady Gaga missed out on the award for Best actress in a drama to Glenn Close, and the film was pipped to the post for Best film (drama) by Bohemian Rhapsody, which was the shock big winner of the evening. The Freddie Mercury biopic received mixed reviews from critics but won the Best film (drama), and Rami Malek walked away with best actor. 

Golden Globe co-host Sandra Oh made history three different times on the night. Oh was the first person of Asian descent to host the Golden Globes, and the first woman of Asian descent to win two Golden Globes - the first was in 2006 for her role as Cristina Yang on Grey’s Anatomy. Her final accolade is for being the first woman Yoko Shimada was to win that category for Shogun in 1980.
