AWARDS Succession wins Golden Globes for Jeremy Strong (Kendall), Sarah Snook (Shiv) and Best Television Series - Drama. Unfortunately this is meaningless. The awards have become so D-grade they only exist as a Twitter feed now. No TV ceremony, no stars, no guests. Just tweets. Insanely spun by the Golden Globes "as the most exclusive event in the industry". So exclusive no-one was there!
