World War I movie 1917 and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, set in 1960s’ Tinseltown, won the top prizes at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday as the Hollywood awards season got underway.
The Sam Mendes-directed 1917 took Best Motion Picture – Drama and Best Director, beating favourites The Irishman and Marriage Story, both from Netflix.
The nostalgic Once Upon a Time in Hollywood from Sony Pictures won the Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, and had the biggest Golden Globe haul, with three awards.
Martin Scorsese’s high-profile and costly gangster epic for Netflix went home empty-handed on a disappointing night for the streaming service that could affect its Oscar chances in February.
Netflix won just a single Golden Globe in the movie race, for Laura Dern’s supporting role as a ruthless divorce lawyer in Marriage Story.
