Netflix's "The Power of the Dog" and 20th Century Studios' "West Side Story" took home the top prizes at the 79th Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night, winning best drama and best musical or comedy, respectively, reported Xinhua.

The Western psychological drama film "The Power of the Dog" won big this year, not only capturing the award for best drama, the biggest prize of the night, but also walking away with best director for Jane Campion, and best supporting actor in any motion picture for Kodi Smit-McPhee.

Nicole Kidman was honored with the best actress in a drama category for her role in "Being the Ricardos," while Will Smith took home another coveted statue for best actor in the category for his performance in "King Richard."

"West Side Story" dominated the musical or comedy category. The musical film, directed by three-time Oscar winner Steven Spielberg, won best picture in the category, in addition to best actress in a musical or comedy for Rachel Zegler, and best supporting actress in any motion picture for Ariana DeBose.

Andrew Garfield nabbed the award for best actor in a musical or comedy for "Tick, Tick... Boom!"

The winners were announced by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) on its official website and social media pages as NBC skipped the controversy-filled event broadcast.

The HFPA has been under fire over its lack of diversity, alleged sexual misconduct and corruption in the past year.
