Comedy/Musical: Greta Gerwig’s Poor Things took home the top prize for Best Picture – Musical or Comedy, while the box office juggernaut

Barbie won the newly created Cinematic and Box Office Achievement Award.

Television: HBO’s powerhouse Succession continued its reign, winning Best Television Series – Drama, along with acting wins for Kieran Culkin, Sarah Snook, and Matthew Macfadyen. In the limited series category, Steven Yeun and Ali Wong shone bright in Beef, each snagging acting awards.

Other Noteworthy Wins: Billie Eilish’s “What Was I Made For?” from the documentary Billie Eilish: The World’s a Little Blurry won Best Original Song, while Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour concert film scooped up the Music Film Award.

Overall:

The ceremony, hosted by comedian Jo Koy, saw a return to normalcy after the controversies surrounding the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) led to a cancellation in 2023.

While viewership numbers were up 50% from last year, thanks to the return of big stars and a more traditional format, the awards still face a long road to regain their pre-scandal prestige.
