7 Golden Globe Winning Shows And Movies That You Can Stream Right Now

The Golden Globes this year lacked the usual glitz and glamour of the ceremony. There was no red carpet, no celebrity fanfare and no savage monologue by Ricky Gervais. The super scaled down event took place at Los Angeles’ Beverly Hilton hotel where winners were announced in a private awards ceremony. It was a big year for Australian artists with Nicole Kidman, Sarah Snook and Kodi Smit-McPhee walking away with top honours. Here are 7 of the best Golden Globe winning shows and movies you should binge or re-binge right away.

1. Mare of Easttown

Led by a brilliant Kate Winslet, Mare of Easttown centers around a detective caught in the middle of a murder investigation in Pennsylvania.

Its a mammoth task to replicate West Side Story (1961) and not that it needed a refreshing but Steven Spielberg manages to put his own spin to the classic tale of Romeo and Juliet.
