The 2020 movie awards season has officially kicked off with the 77th Golden Globe Awards that took place last night in Hollywood, California. In many ways it’s been a truly whirlwind year in the world of movies. Record-breaking box office numbers have often given way to a thinking of diminishing returns when it comes to mid-budget studio fare. The emergence of streaming giant Netflix from cute upstart to legitimate leading studio in the Awards season has similarly led to a shifting window of what the movie industry is currently soon to be turning into.
