Sam Mendes’s “1917,” Grabs Best Movie Award In Golden Globe

CALIFORNIA: In a night of major upsets, “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood,” Quentin Tarantino’s ode to late 1960s-era Los Angeles, emerged as the big winner at the 77th Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, taking home trophies for best musical or comedy, screenplay and supporting actor.

Overall, it was a moment when the Hollywood establishment pushed back against the streaming services that have aggressively arrived on the scene. Sam Mendes’s “1917,” a World War I epic that does not arrive in wide release in theatres until Friday, was named best drama, and Mendes received the Globe for best director.

“I hope this means that people will turn up and see this on the big screen, the way it was intended,” Mendes said from the stage in an unsubtle swipe at Netflix.

It was a humiliating evening for the streaming giant. Netflix went into the ceremony with a leading 34 nominations, including six for Noah Baumbach’s “Marriage Story,” more than for any film, and five for Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman.” But Netflix left with only two prizes: Laura Dern collected the Globe for her supporting role in “Marriage Story” and Olivia Colman (“The Crown”) was named best actress in a television drama.
