The Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture (Drama) 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 it became its own award.

Previous winners include The Power of the Dog, Nomadland, 1917, Bohemian Rhapsody, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Moonlight, The Revenant, Boyhood, 12 Years a Slave, Argo, The Descendants, The Social Network, Avatar, Slumdog Millionaire, Atonement, Babel, Brokeback Mountain, The Aviator, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, The Hours, A Beautiful Mind, Gladiator, American Beauty, Saving Private Ryan, Titanic, The English Patient, Sense and Sensibility, Forrest Gump, Schindler’s List, Bugsy and Dances with Wolves.

The 80th annual Golden Globes were hosted by comedian Jerrod Carmichael at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles. The ceremony was exclusively broadcast on Peacock and NBC.

Talk about a stacked category.
