Keeping up with TV shows and movies in this day and age can be a complicated endeavour. More streaming services are available than ever before, each producing content at an alarming rate for the casual viewer. However, when a series starts collecting awards, it may be time to pay attention.

The Golden Globes, which reward both series and movies, were an interesting affair in 2020. Host Ricky Gervais delivered a controversial opening monologue, Beyoncé proved once again that she knows how to make an entrance and Tom Hanks got choked up while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award for outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment.

Once the dust settled, the winners proved to be quite surprising. Netflix, for instance, didn't dominate the night despite leading when it comes to nominations. It's important to note that on the movie front most winners aren't available to stream in Australia yet, as they're still running in theatres.

1917 took home the prize for Best Drama, beating out The Irishman (Netflix), Marriage Story (Netflix), Joker and The Two Popes (Netflix). For the Best Musical/Comedy category, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood came out on top, with nominees also including Dolemite Is My Name (Netflix), Jojo Rabbit, Knives Out and Rocketman.

As for lead acting accolades, these went to Renée Zellweger for Judy, Awkwafina for The Farewell (available to buy/rent from digital retailers), Joaquin Phoenix for Joker and Taron Egerton for Rocketman. Brad Pitt won in the Supporting Actor category for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, while Laura Dern won Best Supporting Actress for Marriage Story. Quentin Tarantino won Best Screenplay for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and Sam Mendes won Best Director for 1917.

Things get more interesting on the television side, where the majority of the shows are on streaming platforms, so you can easily binge your way through some quality content. If you're looking for new titles to add to your watch list, you can go wrong with these Golden Globe-approved series.
