You can stream a lot of the Golden Globe winners on the top three streamers, including best director, best foreign film, best actress and best actor in a series! So let’s get started!
Roma was a big winner Sunday night, both for best director, Alfonso Cuarón, and for Best Foreign Film, and you can of course, find Roma on Netflix, it’s distribution company. Cuarón has already directed some wonderful movies, including Gravity, Children of Men and Y Tu Mamá También, and he looks mores than ever like he will be nominated for an Academy Awards nomination, at least for director, for Roma. And Roma gets a 96% on Rotten Tomatoes, 4/4 stars on RogerEbert.com and Manohla Dargis of the New York Times called it a “masterpiece.” Roma also won for Best Foreign Language Film. And Regina King won in the Best Supporting Actress category for her role in If Beale Street Could Talk, and though that isn’t yet available for streaming on the big three streamers, Support the Girls, with another great performance from Regina King, is available, on Hulu.
Most of the television categories Sunday night were won shows produced by Netflix, Hulu or Amazon, but all of the shows that won are available to stream. The Americans won for Best Television Drama, and though it originally shows on FX, it is available for streaming on Amazon Prime. And, Sandra Oh, the winner for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series, won for my new favorite new show Killing Eve, and though that originally appeared on BBC America, it is now available on Hulu. If you haven’t seen it yet, watch it now. It gets an 8.3/10 on IMDb. Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series was won by Richard Madden for Bodyguard, and that, too, is a BBC program originally, but it is streaming on Netflix. Rachael Brosnahan won Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series, Musical or Comedy, for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, a Amazon production, and a wonderful, empowering show for women and a delightful glimpse of the comedy scene, in 1950‘s New York. And it gets an 8.7/10 on IMDb! Michael Douglas won for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series, Musical or Comedy, for The Kominsky Method, a Netflix original series.And that series features great actors from multiple cast members, including Alan Arkin(!), Nancy Travis, Susan Sullivan and Emily Osment.

Patricia Arquette won the Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television for Escape from Dannemora, the limited series, directed by Ben Stiller, about the wacky 2015 Clinton Correctional Facility escape.
