Christopher Nolan’s “Oppenheimer” is the big winner at the Golden Globes, sweeping five awards. German actress Sandra Hüller, on the other hand, left empty-handed.

Director Christopher Nolan is likely to be very satisfied after the night leading into Monday: His thriller “Oppenheimer” was honored multiple times at the Golden Globes in Los Angeles. German actress Sandra Hüller, however, only received a nomination: In the category of “Best Actress in a Drama Film,” the 45-year-old was ranked behind Lily Gladstone (37) for her leading role in “Killers of the Flower Moon.” Nevertheless, “Anatomy of a Fall,” a film in which Hüller plays the lead role and was nominated four times at Cannes, won two awards; for best non-English language film and in the screenplay category.

The story of American physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer, as the best drama film, was awarded at the event. Nolan’s film prevailed over “Killers of the Flower Moon,” “Maestro,” “Past Lives,” “Anatomy of a Fall,” and “The Zone of Interest.” For the first time, the 53-year-old director was honored with a Golden Globe for directing. Irish actor and lead star of the box office hit Cillian Murphy emerged as the best drama actor of the evening – surpassing Andrew Scott (“All of Us Strangers”), Bradley Cooper (“Maestro”), and Leonardo DiCaprio (“Killers of the Flower Moon”), among others. Robert Downey Jr. also scored a win: He was honored as the best supporting actor in the thriller. Another trophy was awarded for the film‘s music.

New Category: Greta Gerwig’s “Barbie” Wins a Golden Globe Reflecting on the film year, one movie is indispensable when it comes to the coveted award: “Barbie,” the counterpart to “Oppenheimer.” Greta Gerwig’s satirical cinema hit won the Golden Globe in the new blockbuster category. For this, a film must have grossed at least $150 million worldwide at the box office. Streaming movies with high viewer numbers were also considered. Nolan’s thriller was nominated again, along with “Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 1,” “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour,” “Super Mario Bros. Movie,” and “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.”

“The Bear – King of the Kitchen” was named Best Comedy Series; the fourth and final season of “Succession” received an award for best drama series, and Emma Stone (“Poor Things”) was delighted with a Golden Globe for best actress in a comedy or musical. The fantasy tale “Poor Things” by Greek director Giorgos Lanthimos was honored as the best film.

A total of 27 awards in film and television categories were presented at the gala. The 81st Golden Globe Awards ceremony was intended to mark a sort of restart for the event. This initiative follows criticism of a lack of diversity in recent times.
