Streaming giant Netflix came away with a leading five Golden Globe Awards at the Beverly Hilton ceremony on January 6th.
Netflix original Roma won best foreign language movie, and its Mexican-born filmmaker Alfonso Cuaron took the prize for best director. Its series The Kominsky Method won the award for best comedy while star performer Michael Douglas won best actor in a comedy series. British thriller series Bodyguard, which aired on Netflix outside the UK, also earned a nod with Richard Madden winning best actor in a drama series.
During what was the 76th Golden Globes ceremony, Netflix took an unsubtle swipe at network TV, using its official Twitter account to say: “Shoutout to everyone who is watching commercials for the first time in several months”.
