The Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture has been around since 1944. However, it wasn’t until 1951 when the Hollywood Foreign Press Association split the category into two (Drama and Comedy/Musical) that this became its own category.

The first-ever statuette was given to An American in Paris, followed by With a Song in My Heart, Carmen Jones, Guys and Dolls, The King and I and Les Girls. The most recent winners include The Banshees of Inisherin, West Side Story, Borat Subsequent MovieFilmOnce Upon a Time in Hollywood, Green Book, Lady Bird, La La Land, The Martian, The Grand Budapest Hotel, American Hustle, Les Misérables, The Artist, The Kids Are All Right, The Hangover, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Dreamgirls, Walk the Line, Sideways, Lost in Translation and Chicago.

The 81st annual Golden Globes were held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles. The ceremony was exclusively broadcast on CBS and Paramount+.

This calls for a bottle (or two) of bubbly.
