Streaming platforms led the awards with 30 nominations total among Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video and Apple TV Plus.
The 77th Golden Globes was held this week where streaming platforms overtook the linear broadcast services with the maximum awards. Interestingly, all but one of the 11 Globes TV awards went to those that are either streaming platforms or offer a direct-to-consumer streaming option.
Netflix had 17 nominations in the television category and 34 total nominations, which was more than any other TV or film outlet. However, the streaming service ended up winning just two awards: Olivia Coleman’s best actress victory for The Crown and Laura Dern’s best supporting actress win for the film Marriage Story.
It was HBO that reigned the night with four awards over the course of the night: two for Chernobyl (including best-limited series) and two for media-dynasty drama Succession (including best drama). That was up from last year when the WarnerMedia was tied for fourth place with one win as Netflix and FX led the pack with three each.
Hulu won two awards, including the best actor win awarded to Ramy Youssef for his comedy Ramy and Patricia Arquette’s supporting actress victory for The Act.
Amazon Prime Video won two awards for its Phoebe-Waller Bridge-led comedy Fleabag (best musical or comedy TV series, and best actress in a TV series musical or comedy for Waller-Bridge.)
That is a very strong showing given that at the nominations stage, streamers led with 30 nominations total among Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video and Apple TV Plus, twice as many as the 15 for premium networks HBO and Showtime.
However, the question remains that with more players entering the streaming spectrum, will the linear TV networks be able to hold their ground.
