2019 Golden Globes: Sandra Oh Steals the Show While Oscar Predictions Become UncertainJanuary 7, 2019
Sandra Oh not only hosted the Golden Globes last night (January 6), but took home one of the night's biggest awards for her performance in Killing Eve.
Wearing another outfit worthy of Villanelle, our Sandra thanked showrunner Phoebe Waller-Bridge, co-star Jodie Comer and her parents, who were all cheering her on in the audience.
Other Anglo faves to win awards included Ben Whishaw, who won Best Supporting Actor in a TV Limited Series for his role in A Very English Scandal, and Richard Madden, whose performance in Bodyguard bagged him an award for Best Actor in a TV Drama.
Best TV Drama went to The Americans, while The Kominsky Method was named Best TV Comedy and The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story won Best Limited Series.
The film categories offered a hint at who might be in the running for Oscar glory next month, with Christian Bale winning Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy for his portrayal of Dick Cheney in Vice, and Olivia Colman winning Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy category for her performance in The Favourite.
It's fair to say Olivia was excited, blaming her ineloquence on riding "in a private jet," calling co-stars Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz "ma b--ches," and doing her best Dick van Dyke impression on stage during her acceptance speech.
"Cor blimey," she exclaimed on reaching the podium. "I'm not going to cry because my entire table will point and laugh at me. I've been crying all evening."
Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody won two big awards, including one for its star Rami Malek and his portrayal of frontman Freddie Mercury. He posed later on with band members Brian May and Roger Taylor.

Glenn Close won Best Actress in a Motion Picture (Drama) for her role in The Wife, fueling speculation that she might finally win an Oscar after coming close six times, while Mahershala Ali and Regina King won the Best Supporting Actor and Actress awards for their roles in Green Book and If Beale Street Could Talk respectively.
Predictions are never straightforward, however: just some of the favorites who missed out this time include Emily Blunt, Emma Stone, Timothée Chalamet, Lady Gaga, and Bradley Cooper.
Were your favorites among them?
