The Golden Globes, awarded by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, was held for the 81st time on the night of January 7th to 8th, 2024. The association, made up of more than 300 journalists from 76 countries, honored achievements across 27 categories such as movies, shows, television, and stand-up comedy.

"Barbie" and "Oppenheimer" were among the most talked-about titles of the previous year; however, only "Oppenheimer" clinched victory. It won in five significant categories, while "Barbie" settled with two awards, none of which were of primary importance.

"Succession" was another victorious series at the Golden Globes, bagging four awards in various categories. Kieran Culkin, who plays one of the main characters in this series, was recognized as the Best Actor in a Drama Series. Culkin overshadowed contenders like Gary Oldman from "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy", and Pedro Pascal from "The Last of Us".

Culkin humorously highlighted this fact during his speech stating, "About 20 years ago, I was nominated for a Golden Globe [for the film "Igby Goes Down"]. When that moment passed, I thought I would never be back here. But, thanks to "Succession", I've made a few appearances. I had, in a way, accepted that I might never grace the stage. Yet, here I am, experiencing this wonderful moment. Sorry Pedro, step back! This one's mine!"

Pedro Pascal could only react to these teasing words with laughter. Culkin further owed his gratitude to the creators of "Succession", along with his agent, wife, and mother in the concluding part of his speech.
