The 77th annualkicked off Sunday with comedian hosting for his fifth time. What should have been a knockout night for streaming giant Netflix, awards were handed out to traditional studios in Hollywood, cable networks and relatively new streaming service Hulu.
Netflix led the award show's nominations with 34 across the film and TV categories, but it was Sam Mendes' WWI tale "1917" that won best picture (drama) and Quentin Tarantino's "Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood" that won best film (comedy or musical).
Netflix's divorce drama "Marriage Story" had six nods (Laura Dern took home best supporting actress) and its mobster film "" had five. Both were up against eventual winner "1917," along with "Joker" and " " in the best drama category.
Gervais, who opened the show with an expletive-laden round of jokes and jabs, said Netflix had taken over Hollywood. "This show should just be me coming out going: 'Well done, Netflix. You win everything tonight," he said.
Netflix ended up with only two awards (the second for Olivia Colman's performance in "The Crown"), but has its eyes set for an Oscars win next month in the best picture category.
One of the noteworthy achievements of the night went to Awkwafina, star of the indie family drama "The Farewell." She became the first woman of Asian descent to win best actress in a comedy or musical.

Noah Baumbach's "Marriage Story" leads all movies with six nods, including best film, drama. Martin Scorsese's "The Irishman," with five nominations, is up for the same category. The box-office smash "Joker" may be their stiffest competition.
