Nolte: Golden Globe Ratings Take Another Dive

Nolte: Golden Globe Ratings Take Another Dive

The film was named Best Motion Picture - Drama, while its star Rami Malek came away from the festivities with the award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama.

The film was the surprise victor at the Golden Globes on January 6, taking two major prizes.

Noting the success of "Crazy Rich Asians", Oh alluded to films with white stars in Asian roles like "Ghost in the Shell" and "Aloha", the latter of which prompted Emma Stone, who starred in "Aloha", to shout out "I'm sorry!" from the crowd.

It is Close's second Golden Globe award in 14 nominations.

Instead, two of the biggest awards Sunday night went to Bohemian Rhapsody.

In a desperate bid to rescue the ratings, co-hosts Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg promised to put an end to the divisive, alienating, and mean-spirited politics that have crashed, not just the Globes, but the ratings for every single awards over the last few years.

Last year, Oh and Samberg teamed up when they presented the Emmy Award for best director of a comedy, which went to Amy Sherman-Palladino of "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel".

"The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story" won two awards: Best TV movie or limited series, and Darren Criss for best actor. "I'd like to thank my mother, my father", Sandra said during her speech. They also alluded to the (as of now) host-less Academy Awards, joking about holding a contest in which "one lucky audience member will host the Oscars".

Mahershala Ali won a best supporting actor Golden Globe for his performance in Green Book.

Burnett said sometimes she catches herself wishing she were young so she could do it all over again, but stops herself when she realizes that today's TV producers would never finance a show like hers, with its 28-piece live orchestra, 12 dancers and 65 costumes a week.

In the best actor category, Malek triumphed over Bradley Cooper ("A Star Is Born"), Willem Dafoe ("At Eternity's Gate"), Lucas Hedges ("Boy Erased") and John David Washington in "BlacKkKlansman". He thanked the man on whom his character was based.

Olivia Colman won best actress in a comedy for her performance as daffy Queen Anne in "The Favourite". That left Netflix's Oscar hopeful, Alfonso Cuaron's memory-drenched masterwork "Roma" out of the top category.

Cuaron won best director and the Mexican-born filmmaker's movie won best foreign language film.

Netflix also won numerous awards for the series "The Kominsky Method". Richard Madden, the breakout star of the terrorism suspense series "Bodyguard", won best actor in a drama series. "We can turn this ship in the way we want to go, man", said Bridges.
