With the Golden Globes last night, there’s a deep divide in Hollywood on that notorious ‘day after.’ There are those who won…and those who did not. Sometimes it’s just not your year, which should inspire every actor to work even harder. It’s time for the fans to start watching and reading. Yes, both: adaptations swept up a good amount of awards last night and you’ve got to know what’s good.
We’ve been standing behind these books and their adaptations as soon as we got the news about them last year. Get your glasses of Moët ready, here’s to the adaptations that won last night:
1. Big Little Lies

Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television
2. The Handmaid’s Tale

Best Performance by an Actress in a Drama Television Series: Elisabeth Moss
Best Drama TV Series
These are only the winners. Great works like Call Me By Your Name, The Disaster Artist, All the Money in the World, and Molly’s Game were all nominated for a Golden Globe. Throw in Leisure Seeker, Victoria and Abdul, Mudbound, The Sinner, Genius, and The Wizard of Lies, all adaptations for books of the same name, and you’ve hit a high point. Of course there were also nods to Game of Thrones, 13 Reasons Why, and Outlander because we all know they’re crowd-pleasers.
I know all of these incredible adaptations couldn’t win, but simply the fact that they took over the Golden Globes is enough to satisfy us until next year.
