The Golden Globe Awards are a pretty good indication of who’s up for a pretty good shot come Oscar time so in other words, you’ll want to pay close attention.
The 2019 Golden Globe winners saw Green Book, Roma and Bohemian Rhapsody snatch up the big wins on the movie-front while The Kominsky Method quite literally stole the show for TV.
Here’s everything worth watching based off all the 2019 Golden Globe Award winners.
This comedy-drama should be high on your priorities having won a trifecta of awards; ‘Best Screenplay – Motion Picture’, ‘Best Actor in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture’ (Mahershala Ali) and ‘Best Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy’.
Winning ‘Best Motion Picture — Foreign Language’ and ‘Best Director’ because Alfonso Cuaron is an actual cinematic god, Roma has been on our radars for quite some time now. Watch it on Netflix here.
Taking out ‘Best Actor in a Motion Picture — Drama’ (because no one can do Freddie Mercury like Rami Malek) and ‘Best Motion Picture — Drama’, Bohemian Rhapsody should very well be on your movie hit-list.
You can load up on popcorn and watch Vice in cinemas now since Christian Bale very deservingly scored ‘Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy’ at the 2019 Golden Globe Awards.
If Beale Street Could Talk
It’s times like this when lagging behind the US really kicks. If Beale Street Could Talk, directed by the talented Barry Jenkins (just the man that brought us the Oscar-winning Moonlight), doesn’t come out in cinemas until February 14 but chuck it on that list because Regina King took out ‘Best Actress in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture’.
A Star Is Born
Word on the street is that A Star Is Born was very much snubbed when it came to the final outcome of the 2019 Golden Globes however, the Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper studded film did manage to swipe up ‘Best Original Song’ possibly because the world has had Shallow on repeat since this epic remake first dropped in cinemas late last year.
First Man has definitely been a film that has ended up on the sidelines but the story of NASA’s mission to land Niel Armstrong on the moon shouldn’t be overlooked especially because it was directed by the Oscar-winning Damien Chazelle (La La Land) and written by Academy Award winner Josh Singer (Spotlight). It snapped up ‘Best Original Score – Motion Picture’, you know what to do.
Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse
It pummelled through Box Office predictions like no one’s business so we’re not in the least bit surprised Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse won ‘Best Motion Picture – Animated’. You know the drill.
Pop The Wife on your binge-list and while you’re at it, why not also throw Glen Close’s emotional acceptance speech too (the American actress and producer won ‘Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama’).
Winning ‘Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy’ was Olivia Colman from The Favourite. You can watch the boss actress nail her role as Queen Anne in cinemas now.
The Kominsky Method
There’s no denying The Kominsky Method triumphed in a big way on the TV-front of things at the 2019 Golden Globes with Michael Douglas winning ‘Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy’ and the show itself taking out ‘Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy’. Watch this one on Netflix now.
If you thought Netflix would rule ‘Best Television Series – Drama’, you thought wrong. The Americans finally won its first Golden Globe and that’s a sure-fire reason to pack your week out and watch all six seasons on Amazon Prime Video.
A few months ago, Bodyguard was dubbed one of the UK’s biggest thrillers which means you need to watch this BBC series sooner rather than later (especially because it’s on Netflix right now). It took out ‘Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Drama’ because Richard Madden knows a thing or two about on-screen intensity.
Patricia Clarkson clocked up ‘Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television’ all due to her stellar performance in the psychological thriller miniseries Sharp Objects.
You can catch Killing Eve on TVNZ OnDemand and you’ll want to do so stat because Sandra Oh snatched ‘Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Drama’ easily down to the fact Oh was born to play Eve Polastri, a desk-bound MI5 officer who tracks down a psychopathic assassin. In the end, the two end up becoming obsessed with each other.
Escape At Dannemora
Add Escape At Dannemora to your long list of things to watch because Patricia Arquette took out ‘Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television’. Watch this one on Amazon Prime now.
A Very English Scandal
The British can miniseries and the British can miniseries damn well. Taking out ‘Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television’ all thanks to Ben Whishaw, A Very English Scandal is well worth a watch.
The Assassination Of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story
This FX true-crime anthology series is contentious to say the least as it explores the murder of Gianni Versace. The Assassination Of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story swiped up two big awards; ‘Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television’ and ‘Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television’ (Darren Criss). Check it out on Amazon Prime.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
The hilarious Rachel Brosnahan won ‘Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy’ for her comedic goodness in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. You can watch this one on Amazon Prime Video now.
And here are all the video games worth your sweet time this month.
