The 2019 Golden Globe Awards were held on Sunday night, with a list of winners ranging from the woefully expected to the pleasantly surprising. Click through for TheWrap's list of biggest surprises and see the full rundown of winners here
Surprise: The lead actress in a drama series categories was crowded with heavyweights including nine-time Golden Globe winner Julia Roberts and last year's winner Elisabeth Moss, but ultimately the HFPA went for "Killing Eve" star Sandra Oh, making her the first Asian performer with two Golden Globes.
Snub: "Crazy Rich Asians" broke ground with its two nominations for best picture and lead Constance Wu, but ultimately the first studio film with an Asian-American cast in 25 years was edged out by "Green Book" and "The Favourite" star Olivia Colman.
Olivia Colman took home her first Golden Globe this year for her work in Yorgos Lanthimos's period dramedy "The Favourite,"
but her "bitches" Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone
, both nominated in the supporting category, were bested by "If Beale Street Could Talk" scene-stealer Regina King.
Snub: NBC's "The Good Place" remains one of the most critically acclaimed comedies on the air right now, but awards recognition remains elusive for the afterlife comedy, with both Kristen Bell and the series as a whole missing out on a trophy on Sunday.
Sony Pictures Classics
Surprise: Glenn Close took home her third Golden Globe for her role in "The Wife," upsetting a category which included Nicole Kidman, Rosamund Pike, Melissa McCarthy and the "A Star Is Born" frontrunner Lady Gaga.
Snub: "A Star is Born's" Lady Gaga seemed like a shoe-in to go home with a Globe in each hand: one for acting and one for songwriting. But in a shocking upset she lost the Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama category to Glenn Close, who grabbed the winner’s trophy for her role in “The Wife. And the film itself lost the biggest award of the night -- best drama -- to “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
Snub: The Julia Roberts-led drama "Homecoming" missed out on every award it was nominated for, including the TV Drama category, a leading lady statue for Roberts (which went to Sandra Oh for “Killing Eve”) and one for her co-star Stephan James.
Surprise: Netflix's "The Kominsky Method,” starring Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin, managed to sneak up on us and swipe the best comedy series award from the favored second season of Amazon’s Globes darling “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.”
Snub: Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale" was first snubbed in noms, with only stars Yvonne Strahovski and Elisabeth Moss getting nods. Then the hits kept coming tonight, as neither of them managed to win their category, leaving “The Handmaid’s Tale,” the show that won best drama series just last year, totally shut out.
Surprise: It looks like the HFPA was feeling nostalgic when they voted on Best Television Series — Drama this year, as they doled out the award to final season of FX’s “The Americans,” which was a real shock, as the prize was assumed to be going to either BBC America’s new series “Killing Eve” or Amazon’s Prime Video’s “Homecoming.”
