There was no broadcast, guests, or red carpet for the 79th Golden Globe Awards after celebrities led a boycott against the organisation behind the ceremony over diversity and governance issues. Despite that drama, a “private” ceremony in Los Angeles yesterday saw a handful of Aussies claim a win, including Nicole Kidman for best actress in a drama for her turn as Lucille Ball in Being the Riccardos. Sarah Snook won best supporting actress for Succession, and Kodi Smit-McPhee won best supporting actor for his role in Netflix western The Power of the Dog. That film also won best drama film, and Kiwi Jane Campion picked up best director for her trouble. Also getting a few nods: West Side Story, Hacks,and (surprise…) Succession. This is where we’d usually point you to the red carpet looks from the event… On this occasion, you’ll have to make do with Vogue’s assessment of the best looks of all time.
