A Swede Night At The 2020 Golden GlobesJanuary 6, 2020
We’d like to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press for another exciting Golden Globes! This year marked the show’s 77th year, and stars turned out for another glamorous evening. The Globes are particularly exciting to watch because booze is on the menu, and it’s always fun to see acceptance speeches evolve as the evening progresses.
One of our favorite speeches of the night, obviously, goes to Stellan Skarsgård, who took home a trophy for his role in Chernobyl. The category was “Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television,” and the competition was fierce.
When he went on stage to receive his award, he acknowledged that he knew he would lose so he already thanked everyone he needed to thank. He then proceeded to tell a story about a film director who said he could never remember Skarsgård’s face. Skarsgård figured it was because he had no eyebrows, then he thanked the Chernobyl makeup artist who gave him eyebrows, which led to his first Golden Globe win.
The series, which is directed by Swedish director Johan Renck, also won for Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television.
And in case you missed it, there was another Swedish shoutout during the show. Host Ricky Gervais worked Greta Thunberg into his opening monologue.
