Netflix’s TV series about the British royal family, The Crown, took centre stage at the virtual Golden Globe 2021 Awards. It won best TV drama, as well as two best drama actor and actress awards for Josh O’Connor and Emma Corrin, who played Charles and Diana Windsor.

Looking at the best TV series nominees, however, reveals the awards could have gone Netflix, HBO Max, or Disney Plus – all exclusively streaming platforms. The shift in awards indicates just how strong TV is on streaming platforms, which also tend to have higher budgets than their traditional studio counterparts.

The Queen’s Gambit, also made by Netflix, won the Best Limited Series award. You guessed it, the other award nominees were also exclusively comprised of streaming platforms like Amazon, HBO Max, and Hulu. Anya Taylor-Joy also won Best Actress in a Limited Series for her role as Beth Harmon in the show.

The late Chadwick Boseman posthumously won the Best Actor for Drama award for his performance in Netflix’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. Viola Davis was also nominated for Best Actress for Drama award for the same film.

By the end of the ceremony, Netflix had walked away with 10 wins out of the 42 nominations it received.

Amazon Prime Video also made a strong debut with Sacha Baron Cohen’s Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, a film which Amazon Studios recently acquired and funded. The film won Best Motion Picture for Comedy or Music, beating traditional studios like Walt Disney Pictures, Vertical Entertainment, and Neon.

Outside of the streaming platforms, Chloé Zhao won the Best Director award for Nomadland. She became the first Asian woman to win the award. The last time this title was awarded to a woman was in 1984, when Barbara Streisand won it for Yentl, making Zhao only the second woman to receive it.
