The 80th Annual Golden Globe Awards honored the best film and television of 2022 on Tuesday.

The show was an amalgamation of expected awards (Steven Spielberg as best director for The Fabelmans) and others that left viewers scratching their heads (House of the Dragon as best TV drama over Better Call Saul).

Among the winners include Evan Peters, who won Best Actor in a Limited Series, Anthology Series or Television Motion Picture for playing serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer in Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story.


During his acceptance speech, Peters said the show was “a difficult one to make, difficult one to watch, but I sincerely hope some good came out of it.”

Shirley Hughes, the mother of Tony Hughes, an up-and-coming model whom Dahmer drugged and killed, said that Evans should have used his acceptance speech to acknowledge victims and their families. She also stated that Hollywood should not continue to tell stories about killers that glorify their actions.

The White Lotus star Jennifer Coolidge picked up a best supporting actress award for her performance as Tanya McQuoid.

She stole the show with two memorable yet equally chaotic speeches.

For her award acceptance speech, she reflected on her career before thanking The White Lotus creator Mike White.

The actress also presented the award for best-supporting actor in a TV series. Coolidge told the crowd she was anxious about making a mistake yet finished her speech by presenting the award with “and the Oscar goes to…”

Television producer Ryan Murphy (American Horror Story, American Crime Story and Glee) accepted the Carol Burnett Award that honors “outstanding contributions to television on or off the screen.”

He used his speech to speak directly to young LGBTQ viewers.

“I never ever saw a person like me getting an award or even being a character on a TV show. It’s hard being an LGBTQ kid in America,” he said. “You are often told you will never become anything. You have to hide your life to survive. But for those kids watching tonight, I offer up MJ and Billy and Niecy [Nash] and Matt [Boomer] and Jeremy as examples of possibility.”

Murphy said that for the entirety of his career, he wanted to make those unseen in pop culture the heroes of his shows.
