Critics Consensus

Surprising wins -- both welcome and worrisome -- kept the 76th Golden Globe Awards moving well enough, but a typically overlong ceremony and lackluster jokes undermined otherwise affable hosts and the audience's attention span.

Critic Reviews for Golden Globes 76th Golden Globe Awards

It makes sense to go with the light tone the hosts were going for. But it's complicated when that runs into the complicated issues that tangle up the content and production of the films and television being honored.

The 2019 Golden Globes did everything right leading up to the awards. They hired the right hosts... But if you don't give your stars room to breathe, how are they supposed to shine?

It's never a good sign when an awards ceremony warrants discussion because of its snubs rather than its wins.

From stilted presentations to laundry list acceptance speeches - it was as if all those great actors forgot they know how to put on a show.

Occasionally, embarrassingly for all involved, someone actually takes the thing seriously, and a nation averts its eyes out of politeness. It's just a Golden Globe, for heaven's sake.

Did [Samberg and Oh] live up to expectations? I would say yes-they used their intro to be both positive and aware of representation this year.

The squarest, least funny, most low-stakes ceremony ever.

Onstage, it was a misfire almost in a James Franco-Anne Hathaway-hosting-the-Oscars way - but kinder and gentler.

These animals didn't even nominate Paddington 2 for Best Animated Movie. What did you expect?

    It was an awards with many surprises ( I'm yet shocked and happy for Bohemian Rhapsody to have won as Best Drama - Motion Picture) and very funny with two funny and very charismatic presenters.
