  • Killing Eve Sandra Oh

    Surprise: The lead actress in a drama series categories was crowded with heavyweights including nine-time Golden Globe winner Julia Roberts and last year's winner Elisabeth Moss, but ultimately the HFPA went for 

    "Killing Eve" star Sandra Oh, making her the first Asian performer with two Golden Globes.

    BBC America
  • Crazy Rich Asians

    Snub: "Crazy Rich Asians" broke ground with its two nominations for best picture and lead

  • favourite emma stone

    Snub: Olivia Colman took home her first Golden Globe this year for her work in Yorgos Lanthimos's period dramedy

    "The Favourite," but her "bitches"

    Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone, both nominated in the supporting category, were bested by "If Beale Street Could Talk" scene-stealer Regina King.

    Fox Searchlight
  • The Good Place

    Snub: NBC's

    "The Good Place" remains one of the most critically acclaimed comedies on the air right now, but awards recognition remains elusive for the afterlife comedy, with both

    Kristen Bell and the series as a whole missing out on a trophy on Sunday.

  • Glenn Close The Wife

    Surprise: Glenn Close took home her third Golden Globe for her role in

    "The Wife," upsetting a category which included Nicole Kidman, Rosamund Pike, Melissa McCarthy and the "A Star Is Born" frontrunner Lady Gaga.

    Sony Pictures Classics
  • A Star Is Born Lady Gaga

    Snub: "A Star is Born's" Lady Gaga seemed like a shoe-in to go home with a Globe in each hand: one for acting and one for songwriting. But in a shocking upset she lost the Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama category to Glenn Close, who grabbed the winner’s trophy for her role in “The Wife. And the film itself lost the biggest award of the night -- best drama -- to “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

    Warner Bros.
  • Homecoming Julia Roberts

    Snub: The Julia Roberts-led drama

    "Homecoming" missed out on every award it was nominated for, including the TV Drama category, a leading lady statue for Roberts (which went to Sandra Oh for “Killing Eve”) and one for her co-star Stephan James.

  • 'The Kominsky Method' - Netflix

    Surprise: Netflix's

    "The Kominsky Method,” starring Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin, managed to sneak up on us and swipe the best comedy series award from the favored second season of Amazon’s Globes darling “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.”

  • handmaid's tale escape gilead novel margaret atwood

    Snub: Hulu's 

    "The Handmaid's Tale" was first snubbed in noms, with only stars

    Yvonne Strahovski and Elisabeth Moss getting nods. Then the hits kept coming tonight, as neither of them managed to win their category, leaving “The Handmaid’s Tale,” the show that won best drama series just last year, totally shut out.

  • The Americans

    Surprise: It looks like the HFPA was feeling nostalgic when they voted on Best Television Series — Drama this year, as they doled out the award to final season of FX’s

    “The Americans,” which was a real shock, as the prize was assumed to be going to either BBC America’s new series “Killing Eve” or Amazon’s Prime Video’s “Homecoming.”
