2023 had a range of utterly captivating, breathtaking filmography–from the broadened minds of Christopher Nolan and Studio Ghibli, to more minuscule projects such as “The Killer” and “Sound of Freedom”. And what better way to commemorate said movies than at the annual Golden Globes. The following is a recap of the 2024 Golden Globes:

  1. “Poor Things” – Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos

A comedic undertaking unlike any that have preceded it, “Poor Things,” alongside a slew of nominations, obtained two awards in its own right: Best Actress–Comedy: Emma Stone and Best Musical/Comedy- both incredibly regarded amongst filmgoers.

  1. “Oppenheimer”– Directed by Christopher Nolan

Slated to be his “magnum opus”--or, the magnus opus of Film Biopics, more so– “Oppenheimer” exceeded the expectations of all who viewed it, nabbing Nolan a whopping five awards: Best Motion Picture/Drama, Best Director: Christopher Nolan,  Best Actor Motion Picture Drama: Cillian Murphy, Best Supporting Actor: Robert Downey Jr. and Best Original Score

  1. “Anatomy of a Fall” – Directed by Justine Triet

A vacation gone horribly awry, “Anatomy of a Fall” captivated its audience in a thrilling manner, resulting in two awards: Best Screenplay and Best Foreign Motion Picture.

  1. “Killers of the Flower Moon” – Directed by Martin Scorsese 

Though it received all but one award – Lily Gladstone for Best Actress--”Killers of the Flower Moon” is a sight to behold; if a fleeting director can film such an amazing film regarding the Osage Murders, Hollywood is in for the long run.

  1. “The Boy and the Heron” – Directed by Hiyao Miyazaki

Envision for a moment, you go back on your retirement for one last stand–that is precisely why “The Boy and the Heron” is such a treat. Being a return/farewell on behalf of his colleagues at Studio Ghibli and him, Hiyao Miyazaki managed, once more, to sculpt an astonishing film; every frame of animation more animated and vibrant. Therefore, it was no shock when he received Best Animated Motion Picture.
