Squid Game’s Oh Young-Soo, Aka Player 001, Makes History: He's The First Korean Actor To Win Golden Globe Award
'West Side Story' and 'The Power of the Dog' win big at the celebrity-free Golden Globe Awards on Sunday (Jan 9).
Oh, 77, made history by being the first Korean actor to win a Golden Globe for his portrayal of Oh II-Nam, also referred to as The Host or Player 001 in the controversial Netflix drama. He edged out rivals Billy Crudup (The Morning Show), Kieran Culkin (Succession), Mark Duplass (The Morning Show), and Brett Goldstein (Ted Lasso).
Squid Game was vied for Best Television Drama and Best Actor in a Television Drama category for Lee Jung-Jae (as Player 456), but lost out to HBO's corporate drama Succession, and that's show's Jeremy Strong, respectively.
The Power of the Dog, West Side Story and Succession were the big winners at the 2022 Golden Globes, which was held private, with no celebrities in attendance and no television broadcast or livestream.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Associations, the folks behind the Golden Globes, previously came under fire for the lack of black representation among its members, and a social media campaign called Time's Up was even launched to help highlight the issue.
The HFPA instead announced the winners via their website and social media.
Western The Power of the Dog took home Best Drama, Best Director for Jane Campion, and Best Supporting Actor for Kodi Smit-McPhee, who starred alongside Benedict Cumberbatch [Phil] as Peter.
Steven Spielberg's remake of the classic musical West Side Story scooped Best Musical or Comedy Film, leading star Rachel Zegler [Maria] took Best Actress in the Comedy or Musical genre, and Ariana DeBose scooped Best Supporting Actress In A Motion Picture.
It was also a big night for TV's Succession, which saw off competition from Squid Game, The Morning Show, Pose and Lupin to be named Best Television Series in the Drama genre.
The show's star Jeremy Strong also nabbed Best Performance By An Actor In A Television Series (Drama) for his portrayal of Kendall Roy in the HBO television show and Best Supporting Actress went to Sarah Snook (Shiv Roy).
Elsewhere, Will Smith was named Best Actor In A Drama Film for his starring role as the father of tennis aces Venus and Serena Williams in King Richard, and Nicole Kidman was honoured with the same prize for her turn as Lucille Ball in Being The Ricardos.Kate Winslet won Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series, Anthology Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for Mare Of Easttown, in which she stars as titular US detective Mare Sheehan, and Andrew Garfield nabbed the male counterpart for Lin-Manuel Miranda's tick, tick...BOOM!.
Best Screenplay went to Kenneth Branagh for the acclaimed coming-of-age drama Belfast.
Hans Zimmer took home Best Original Score for Dune, while 'No Time To Die', the James Bond theme was crowned Best Original Song.
The hit was co-written by Billie Eilish and her sibling and collaborator, Finneas O'Connell, and performed by the former.
