Golden Globe Awards 2024: Netflix “Beef” series wins the best limited TV series

The Golden Globe for best television limited series went to Netflix’s “Beef.”

The comedy-drama, produced by A24 and featuring actor Steven Yeun and comedian Ali Wong, made history by being the first Asian American-made programme to win in its category.

“Our show is actually based on a real road rage incident that actually happened to me, so I’d be remiss not to thank that driver,” creator Lee Sung Jin laughed as he accepted the honour. “Sir, I hope you honk and yell and inspire others for years to come.

“All the Light We Cannot See,” “Daisy Jones and the Six,” “Fargo,” and “Lessons in Chemistry” were the other four finalists.

In a limited TV series, Ali Wong and Steve Yeun took home Golden Globes for best actress and actor, respectively, for their work in Netflix’s “Beef” on Sunday night.

Creator and showrunner of “Beef,” Lee, said at the IndieWire Honours that the inspiration for the series came from a real-life experience he had. “Beef” was somewhat inspired by an altercation I had with the police, according to Lee. I was shouted at and honked at by this guy in a white SUV. And for some reason, I decided to follow you on this particular day. Though, in my opinion, it was incredibly foolish and anticlimactic, it did result in this honour. I would be negligent if I did not express my gratitude to him; I hope he honks and yells, motivating others for years to come.
