81st Golden Globes Honor 2023 Films and Television

The annual Golden Globes Awards were held this month, celebrating the best and brightest in cinema and television.

Films such as Oppenheimer and Barbie, along with the long-lasting TV show, Succession, dominated the top honors throughout the night. The trio of films combined to win Best Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture, Best Director, Best Performance by a Male Actor in a Motion Picture (Drama), and Best Original Score, as well as taking home Best Motion Picture (Drama). It was clear that Hollywood critics agreed with the success indicated by movie theater ticket sales during the “Barbinheimer” phase.

As a key highlight, Lily Gladstone won Best Performance by a Female Actress in a Motion Picture (Drama) playing Mollie Burkart in Killers of the Flower Moon. An emotional, yet applauded award was embellished through her acceptance speech: “This is for every little rez kid, every little urban kid, every little native kid out there who has a dream, who has seen themselves represented by our stories…”

Following major film awards, The Bear caught critics’ attention and ended up winning Best Television Series (Musical or Comedy). Lionel Boyce, who played Marcus, gave a shout-out to the whole restaurant community acknowledging the hard work and dedication they put into their industry every day. While they are only “telling the story,” many people out there embrace it as a reality. 

Honoring a defining year in cinema, it is fair to say that the 81st Annual Golden Globes will be one to remember.
