2020 Golden Globe Winners

The winners of the HFPA's 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards, the precursor to the Academy Awards, have been announced tonight at a ceremony held at The Beverly Hilton hotel in LA, hosted by Ricky Gervais. Who's taking home a Globe this year? Here's hoping the HFPA makes some good picks. Our list below will be updated with all film-related winners as they're revealed during the broadcast. The nominees for 2019 are solid this year - way better than last year, with many worthy films being highlighted (like The Farewell, Parasite, Harriet, Dolemite, Knives Out). Even though these awards don't matter too much in the end, we're still curious to see what ends up winning. Let's find out who is taking home a Golden Globe award this year.

Final Thoughts: Honestly, not so bad! All of the nominees this year are worthy of being winners, and all of the winners are deserving of the accolade. All the surprises and twists are actually more exciting than them picking expected winners - like talented actors/filmmakers who have been winning awards for years already. Rocketman and 1917 are the most surprising picks - both are certainly good films, but not really exceptional masterpieces, but it seems like the HFPA just fell for both. They love Elton John, and they love war movies, so why not? I enjoyed both of them just as well. They also seem to love Tarantino, and as we all know, "old Hollywood" movies play well with awards voters so it's no surprise they awarded it three times. The best win of the night, however, is Awkwafina for The Farewell. Just as much of a win for director Lulu Wang as well.

What do you think of the 2020 winners? How is the show with Ricky Gervais hosting again? Having fun? Are the winners even worth analyzing? Which of your favorite movies of 2019 are you rooting for tonight?
