The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the winners for the 79th Annual Golden Globe Awards tonight with The Power of the Dog named Best Motion Picture – Drama and West Side Story as Best Motion Picture – Musical or  Comedy. On the television side, Succession won Best Television Series – Drama, while Hacks won for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy.

After a year of controversy about diversity, payola, and improper behavior endemic to the organization that culminated in the Globes losing its NBC broadcast, tonight’s coverage and the subsequent congratulatory marketing from winners will be a good litmus test for if the beleaguered organization can rinse off some of the stink from a year of bad headlines and even more puzzling decisions. If you need a refresher on the ins and outs of what happened read our recap of how we got here.

Over the last eight months, the HFPA has reformed its bylaws, implementing changes that address ethics and code of conduct, diversity, equity and inclusion, governance, and membership. The HFPA recently admitted their largest and most diverse class to date of 21 new members, all of whom are first-time Golden Globe voters. Though the jury is very much out on if HFPA can squeeze its way back into the good graces of Hollywood, after a fairly uneventful and mostly uncontroversial group of diverse winners, it is unlikely to hurt those efforts.
