The results are in!

Tonight, the 77th annual Golden Globes took place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles. During the event, Succession took home the statuette for Best Television Series, Drama. The hit show was up against Big Little Lies (HBO), The Crown (Netflix), Killing Eve (BBC) and The Morning Show (Apple TV+).

While Killing Eve was nominated for this particular category, fans were unhappy that Sandra Oh didn’t receive a nomination for Best Actress (the honor she was presented with last year). Instead, her co-star Jodie Comer got the Best Actress nod (along with Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon for The Morning Show).

As for The Crown, this isn’t its first nomination in this category—the Netflix show actually took home the award back in 2017. 

Last year, it was The Americans that beat out Bodyguard (Netflix), Homecoming (Amazon Prime), Killing Eve (BBC) and Pose (FX). In 2018, The Handmaid’s Tale was presented with the Globe at the 75th annual ceremony. 

For this specific category, documentary series and mini-series are also eligible. From 1962 to 1968, the category was even more inclusive: It was called the Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series and included musical, comedy and drama series in a single category.

Congratulations to Succession!
