Billie Eilish & Finneas and More Record-Setters at the 2024 Golden Globes

“Barbenheimer,” which broke records at the box-office last summer, also dominated the 2024 Golden Globe Awards, which were presented at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Sunday (Jan. 7).

Oppenheimer won five Globes, the most by any film since La La Land swept seven awards seven years ago. Barbie won two (fewer than expected) – best original song and in the new cinematic and box office achievement category. In the latter category, it beat Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour, which some had thought might be an upset winner.

“What Was I Made For?,” the Barbie ballad by Billie Eilish and Finneas, won best original song, defeating two other songs from Barbie, “Dance the Night” and “I’m Just Ken.” It’s the sibling pair’s second Globe in three years, which constitutes the fastest repeat trip to the podium in this category since Benj Pasek and Justin Paul won back-to-back awards in the category with “City of Stars” from La La Land (which they composed with Justin Hurwitz) in 2017 and “This Is Me” from The Greatest Showman in 2018.

Eilish is just the fourth woman to win twice in the category, following Carole Bayer Sager, Marilyn Bergman and Diane Warren.


“What Was I Made For?,” which Barbie director Greta Gerwig has called the film’s “heart” song, is considered the front-runner to win the Academy Award for best original song. The Oscar nominations will be announced on Jan. 23.

Ludwig Göransson won best original score for Oppenheimer. It’s his first Globe win, following nominations in this category for Black Panther and Tenet and a best original song nod for co-writing “Lift Me Up” from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Göransson is the first Swedish composer to win for best original score. Göransson is considered the front-runner to win the Academy Award for best original score on March 10.

The top winner on the TV side was HBO’s Succession, with four awards, followed by FX’s The Bear and Netflix’s Beef, with three awards each.

Past Lives went 0-5 for the night, the biggest shutout by any film. On the TV side, Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building had the biggest shutout, also going 0-5 on the night.
