The 2019 Golden Globes have come and gone, co-hosted by Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh, who won an award of her own for her role in Killing Eve. We knew who two of Sunday night’s honorees would be before the ceremony even began: Jeff Bridges received the Cecil B. DeMille Award, while Carol Burnett became the first person to accept a new television equivalent, which is named after her. But there were still plenty of surprises.

In the film categories, Adam McKay’s Vice led the pack going in with six nominations but left with just one win, for star Christian Bale, who played former vice president Dick Cheney. Ultimately, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association gave Bohemian Rhapsody the prize for best drama and also lauded its star Rami Malek. Green Book won three major awards, including Best Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy), Best Screenplay, and a Supporting Actor trophy for Mahershala Ali.

More predictably, Roma won in its category, Best Motion Picture (Foreign Language), and also snagged Best Director for Alfonso Cuarón. The top television awards went to new Netflix comedy The Kominsky Method and the final season of The Americans.

The complete list of winners is below.
