The Fabelmans took home the award for Best Picture, Drama at the 2023 Golden Globes on Tuesday night, because, believe it or not, the 2023 Golden Globes did, in fact, happen.
Writer/director Steven Spielberg accepted the award for his deeply personal autobiographical film, reminiscing about his years as a PA for director John Cassavetes. “I got them coffee, I got them anything they wanted—I ran to delis and got them anything they wanted. So that’s why I treat my PAs so kindly because I know what it’s like,” Spielberg said. “Thank you!”
It was an energized night at The Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, as the nominees returned to both an in-person venue and on live TV for the first time since 2020. Other winners of the night include Spielberg’s win for Best Director of a Motion Picture for The Fabelmans, Michelle Yeoh’s Best Actress, Musical or Comedy win for Everything Everywhere All At Once, and Austin Butler’s Best Actor, Drama win for Elvis.
Of the films nominated for Best Drama, you can stream Top Gun: Maverick on Paramount+; the Elvis biopic on HBO Max; and you can rent or buy Tar and The Fabemans on VOD. Avatar: The Way Of Water is not yet available on streaming—you’ll have to go to a movie theater to see it. On the comedy side, you can catch Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery on Netflix; The Banshees Of Inisherin on HBO Max; and you can buy or rent Everything Everywhere All At Once and Triangle of Sadness on VOD. Babylon is in theaters only.
Last year, NBC opted not to air the awards, after a Los Angeles Times expose revealed that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association—the organization responsible for voting on and awarding the Golden Globes—didn’t have a single Black member. The HPFA has since added six new Black voters, but not everyone was ready to forgive and forget. Brendan Fraser—who was nominated for Best Actor, Drama for his performance in The Whale, and who accused the former HPFA president Philip Berk of sexual assault—did not attend the awards out of protest.
