The Golden Globe award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture (Drama) has been around since the ’40s, though it was originally combined with the Comedy and Musical category. Previous winners include Cate Blanchett for Tár, Nicole Kidman for Being the Ricardos, Andra Day for The United States vs. Billie Holiday, Renée Zellweger for Judy, Glenn Close for The Wife, Frances McDormand for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Isabelle Huppert for Elle, Brie Larson for Room, Julianne Moore for Still Alice, Cate Blanchett for Blue Jasmine and Jessica Chastain for Zero Dark Thirty.
Meryl Streep currently holds the record for the most nominations in this category, with a total of 14. She’s followed by a four-way tie: Faye Dunaway, Katharine Hepburn, Nicole Kidman and Geraldine Page, who each have six nominations.
The 81st annual Golden Globes were held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles. The ceremony was exclusively broadcast on CBS and Paramount+.
So. Well. Deserved.
