The 79th annual Golden Globe Awards are here. In a private event, the Golden Globes celebrated some of the best the screen has to offer in television and film. Andrew Garfield brought home the award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy for his performance in Netflix’s tick, tick…BOOM!.

tick, tick…BOOM! marks the directorial debut for Grammy Award winner Lin-Manuel Miranda. Written for the stage by Jonathan Larson originally as a rock monologue and penned for the screen by Steven Levenson, tick, tick…BOOM! tells the story of Jon (Garfield), a young theater composer in New York City. Jon, much like many others in the big city, dreams of writing the next great American musical. Days before he’s due to showcase his work in a performance that could launch his career or destroy it, Jon is feeling the pressure from everywhere, especially those close to him. With the clock ticking, Jon is at a crossroads and must figure out what he, like all of us, must do with the time given to him.

Garfield has received increasing attention in the last couple of months since the movie’s premiere on Netflix on November 12, 2021 due to his performance as the late Larson. Audiences and critics alike seem to agree that Garfield not only delivered an impressive performance in his first musical, but that he was able to embody Larson in such a beautiful and impactful way. Garfield delivered an emotionally moving performance consistent with his history in the industry, and clearly awards season is off to a great start in proving that.

tick, tick…BOOM! is now streaming on Netflix, and you can check out which three songs moved us the most here.
