This year’s Globes included new categories for stand-up comedy and cinematic and box office success. Barbie won the award for best cinematic and box office achievement, which had eight nominees chosen from films that had “a box office receipt total/gross of $150 million, of which $100 million must come from the U.S. domestic box office, and/or obtain commensurate digital streaming viewership recognised by trusted industry sources,” according to the Globes.
Six comedians were nominated for the award for best performance in stand-up comedy on television, for “traditional stand-up comedy performances of at least 30 minutes, other than roles in television series, limited series, anthology series, or motion pictures made for television” on “a recognised media platform (individual social media accounts do not qualify).” Gervais, a previous Globes host, won the award for Ricky Gervais: Armageddon.
The event, which aired live on CBS from the Beverly Hilton and was streamed on Paramount+, was presented by Jo Koy. Barbie and Succession has nine nominations for the 2024 Golden Globes going into the presentation.
