After years mired in controversy and a year off air, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) made some changes to its membership and resumed handing out gold trophies for achievements in film and television on television. The 80th Annual Golden Globe Awards were held live from Los Angeles on Jan. 10 and aired on NBC. 

Almost 200 individuals across the world voted for the winners, the complete list of which you can read below. Going into the ceremony, The Banshees of Inisherin was on the top of the ballot when it came to the film with the most nominations (with eight), followed closely by Everything Everywhere All at Once, which scored six noms. On the television side of the ballot, Abbott Elementary had the most nominations with five, while a quintuplet of series across all three genre categories tied for second-most noms with four. Those were The Crown, Dahmer - Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, Only Murders in the Building, Pam & Tommy, and The White Lotus.

However, the biggest winners of the night were Abbott Elementary and The Banshees of Inisherin, which each won three awards. In second place for most awards taken home were Everything Everywhere All at Once, The Fabelmans, and The White Lotus, which each won two.

Ryan Murphy (who executive produced nominee Dahmer) took home the Carol Burnett Award and Eddie Murphy earned this year's Cecil B. DeMille Award.

Jerrod Carmichael served as host and he wasted no time jumping into the recent history of the organization that hands out these awards, noting that he was there, on the stage, because he's Black and the HFPA didn't have a Black member "until George Floyd died." People in the audience laughed, but that was not a joke; that was a hard truth. After that controversy became wide public knowledge, change was promised. Carmichael noted that, in a way, he was asked to be the "Black face of an embattled white organization" and he felt like he was only asked to host because he is Black. But after a conversation with producer Stephen Hill, who tried to convince him he was chosen because he is charming and talented, and a conversation with a friend who asked him what he was being paid and when he said half a million dollars her advice was to "take the white people's money," the decision was made, despite his moral conundrum.

"I took this job assuming they hadn't changed at all," he said. "I heard they got six new Black members, congrats to them, sure. That's not why I'm here. I'm here, truly, because of all of you. I look out into this room and I see a lot of talented people — people I admire, people that I would like to be like, people that I'm jealous of, and people that are really incredible artists. And regardless of whatever the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's past may be, this is an evening where we get to celebrate. And I think this industry deserves evenings like these."

Read on for all of the winners across film and television categories.
