Literary adaptations scored a handful of Golden Globe wins Sunday evening at a private, untelevised ceremony in Beverly Hills, California.
The winners of the awards, wracked over the last year by controversies over ethics and race, were posted on Twitter throughout the evening.
Jane Campion’s The Power of the Dog, based on the 1967 novel by Thomas Savage, was a big winner at the awards, taking home prizes for best motion picture–drama, best director–motion picture (Campion), and best supporting actor–motion picture (Kodi Smit-McPhee).
The critically acclaimed Drive My Car, based on a short story by Haruki Murakami and directed by Ryusuke Hamaguchi, was the winner in the best motion picture–non-English language category.
Barry Jenkins’ Amazon Prime limited series The Underground Railroad, based on Colson Whitehead’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, took home the prize for best television limited series, anthology series, or motion picture made for television.
Michael Keaton won the award for best actor in a television limited series, anthology series, or motion picture made for television for his role in Dopesick, based on Beth Macy’s Dopesick: Dealers, Doctors and the Drug Company that Addicted America.
The prize for best score–motion picture went to Hans Zimmer for Dune, Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of Frank Herbert’s science fiction classic.
Dune was otherwise shut out, despite earning multiple nominations, as were Maggie Gyllenhaal’s film The Lost Daughter, based on Elena Ferrante’s novel, and the miniseries Maid, based on Stephanie Land’s memoir.
