The major failure was witnessed by streaming giant Netflix on Sunday. Its ambitious project The Irishman, that was helmed by Martin Scorsese, went home empty-handed. The mob epic had the second-highest nominations for the evening but its fellow competitor Once Upon a Time in…Hollywood took home five awards the same evening.

Netflix’s film Two Popes was also nominated for four categories but failed to take even a single one. Dolemite Is My Name was also expected to take home the best actor award as the film starred Eddie Murphy but failed to do so. Other films that did not win a single Golden Globes award included Bombshell, Harriet, Jojo Rabbit, Frozen 2, Knives Out, The Lion King, Little Women, and Pain and Glory. All of these films were part of the race with multiple nominations.
