Netflix and Hulu pick up TV Golden Globes as Succession dominates

Beef and The Bear each took home three awards.


The 2024 Golden Globes represented a return to normalcy after a year dominated by strikes in the entertainment industry. Streamers continued to get recognition for their shows, with Netflix, Hulu and Max picking up a combined 12 television awards.

Max (formerly HBO Max) won the most awards, garnering four for the final season of Succession, including best drama television series. Best performance by an actress and actor in that category went to Sarah Snook and Kieran Culkin, who played siblings Roman and Shiv Roy on the series. Matthew Macfayden rounded out Succession's wins by taking home the award for best performance by an actor in a supporting role on television. Succession is available to stream through Max but was viewable direct on TV through HBO.

Netflix won for a range of shows, such as The Crown, which premiered its final season at the end of the year. The Crown actress Elizabeth Debecki took home the award for best performance by an actress in a supporting role on television for her portrayal of Princess Diana. Ricky Gervais won best performance in standup comedy on television for Ricky Gervais: Armageddon. Beef took home three awards, winning for best performances by an actress (Ali Wong) and actor (Steven Yeun) in a limited series, anthology series or series made for television. It also won for best overall in that category. The show was mired in controversy due to the casting of (and silence around) actor David Choe, who previously shared stories describing alleged sexual assaults.

Hulu's three awards came courtesy of FX-produced The Bear, which won for best musical or comedy television series. The show's lead actors, Ayo Edebiri and Jeremy Allen White, took home the best performance in a musical or comedy television series by an actress and actor awards, respectively.
