A number of actors who have been seen on Broadway took home trophies at the 2024 Golden Globe Awards on Jan. 7. The ceremony was held at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles.
Comedian Jo Koy, who was a producer on the recent Broadway musical “Here Lies Love,” served as host of the 81st annual Golden Globes, which honors the best of the past year in film and television. Awardees are voted upon by members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
Among the 2024 winners were four performers who have appeared on the Main Stem. Da’Vine Joy Randolph, whose Broadway debut as Oda Mae Brown in “Ghost The Musical” earned her a 2006 Tony Award nomination as Best Featured Actress in a Musical, took home the first Golden Globe of the night. Randolph won in the category of Best Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture, for her turn as Mary Lamb in the film “The Holdovers.”
Randolph’s co-star, Paul Giamatti — whose Broadway credits include 1995 productions of “Arcadia” and “Racing Demon,” a 1997 revival of “The Three Sisters” and a 1999 staging of “The Iceman Cometh” — won the Golden Globe as Best Performance by a Male Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy, for his performance as Paul Hunham in “The Holdovers.”
Kieran Culkin, who was seen as Dennis Ziegler in the 2014 Broadway premiere of “This Is Our Youth,” won the Golden Globe as Best Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Series, Drama, for his turn as Roman Roy in the series “Succession.” Emma Stone, who in 2014 replaced as Sally Bowles in Broadway’s “Cabaret,” took home the Golden Globe in the category of Best Performance by a Female Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy, for her performance as Bella Baxter in the movie “Poor Things.”
Two high-profile Broadway-related screen projects went home empty-handed. The film adaptation of Broadway’s “Color Purple” musical and the Leonard Bernstein biopic “Maestro,” which had received two and four nominations, respectively, did not win in any category.
Top-category winners included “Oppenheimer” as Best Motion Picture, Drama; “Poor Things” as Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy; “Succession” as Best TV series, Drama; and “The Bear” as Best TV series, Musical or Comedy.
