Oppenheimer was the big winner at the Golden Globe Awards, taking home five awards including the top prize.
Cillian Murphy and Robert Downey Jr were both recognized for their acting performances, while Christopher Nolan won best director.
Succession scored the most wins in the TV categories following its acclaimed fourth and final season.
Meanwhile, Barbie won the first box office achievement award, after grossing $1.4bn (£1.13m) worldwide.
Murphy paid tribute to Nolan’s ‘rigour, focus and dedication’ in making the film, which grossed $954m (£750m) at the box office.
In his acceptance speech, he said, ‘I knew the first time I walked on Christopher Nolan’s set that it was different,” he said in his acceptance speech.
Murphy left the audience amused, quipping ‘I could tell by the level of rigour, focus, dedication, and the complete lack of seating options for actors, that I was in the hands of a visionary director.’
Murphy also joked about the number of Irish nominees in awards season this year – Andrew Scott and Barry Keoghan among them.
The biopic also won awards for best score and best supporting actor for Downey Jr, who portrayed US government official Lewis Strauss.
Downey Jr acknowledged the film’s unlikely box office success in his acceptance speech, joking: ‘A sweeping story about the ethical dilemma of nuclear weapons grosses $1bn?’
The actor continued: ‘Dozens of folks have come up to me since the summer time saying I was unrecognizably subtle as Lewis Strauss. To my fellow nominees, let’s not pretend this is a compliment.’
He also referred to the changes made to the Golden Globes membership following a scandal over corruption and a lack of diversity. ‘Thanks for changing your game,’ he said.
Killers of the Flower Moon star Lily Gladstone began her acceptance speech by speaking Algonquian language Blackfoot. She comes from a Blackfeet Indian Reservation in northern Montana.
In Killers of the Flower Moon, Gladstone plays Mollie Burkhart, an Osage woman whose family members are brutally murdered as part of a plot by white settlers to move in on their land and take their fortune, fuelled by greed over oil.
Succession was the big winner in the TV categories – following the fourth and final season of the series about a media mogul and his children who battle for control of his company.
Kieran Culkin, who played Roman Roy in the series, was named best leading TV actor – an award previously won by his co-stars Brian Cox and Jeremy Strong.
‘I was nominated for a Golden Globe like 20 years ago and when that moment passed, I thought, ‘I’ll never be in this room again’ he said.
‘I accepted I was never going to be on this stage. But thanks to Succession…. this is a nice moment.’
