Big Golden Globes Wins for Lionsgate, Netflix, Amazon8 Jan, 2017 By: John Latchem
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association sung the praises of La La Land at the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards ceremony Jan. 8.
The musical, distributed by Lionsgate, won seven trophies, taking every category for which it was nominated, including Best Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy.
Lionsgate also has home entertainment rights to A24's Moonlight, which one for Best Motion Picture — Drama.
Expectedly, with most movies in competition for awards having been released toward the end of the year, most of the Golden Globes winners in the film categories are still playing in theaters and have not yet been announced for home video. The lone exception is Disney's Zootopia, which won for Best Motion Picture — Animated.
Amazon Studios enjoyed wins in both the film and TV categories, with Manchester by the Sea (another future Lionsgate home entertainment release) taking Best Actor in a Drama for Casey Affleck, and the Amazon original series "Goliath" winning Best Actor in a Television Series — Drama for Billy Bob Thornton.
Netflix's "The Crown," about the rise of Great Britain's Queen Elizabeth II, broke through with two awards, including Best Television Series — Drama, and Best Actress in a Television Series — Drama for Claire Foy as Elizabeth.
FX's The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story continued its awards success by winning Best Limited Series or TV Movie and Best Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie for Sarah Paulson. The miniseries is available on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital HD from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment.
