Streaming giant Netflix had a big night at the Golden Globes this past weekend, showing just how much the company's original content is paying off.

The company headed into the award ceremony with 13 nominations. Netflix received three nominations each for Homecoming, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and A Very English Scandal.

Homecoming, which stars Julia Roberts and Bobby Cannavale, was nominated for Best Drama. Roberts was nominated for Best Actress and Stephan James was nominated for Best Actor.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel was nominated for Best Musical or Comedy Series and lead actress Rachel Brosnahan, received a Best Actress nomination. Alex Borstein was nominated for her supporting role. A Very English Scandal was nominated for Best Limited Series, Best Actor in a Limited Series for Hugh Grant, and Best Supporting Actor in a Limited Series for Ben Whishaw.

Beautiful Boy's Timothée Chalamet was nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role.

The Kominsky Method received three nominations for Best Musical or Comedy Series, Best Actor for Michael Douglas and Best Supporting Actor for Alan Arkin. Bodyguard received a nomination for Best Drama Series and Best Actor for Richard Madden.

Alison Brie was nominated for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy Series for Glow, Jason Bateman got the nomination for Best Actor for Ozark and Regina King received the nomination for Best Actress in a Limited Series nomination for Seven Seconds.

Netflix's Roma also received three nominations. Belgian film Girl received a nomination for Best Foreign Language Film and Dumplin' received a nomination for Best Original Song.

Netflix ended up winning five awards last Sunday with “The Kominsky Method” and “Roma” each winning more than one award. The company won a best foreign film and a directing award for “Roma,” Alfonso Cuarón’s black-and-white meditation on his childhood growing up in Mexico City.

“The Kominsky Method” won the best comedy prize and best actor in a TV comedy for Michael Douglas while Richard Madden won the best actor in a TV drama in Netflix’s British “Bodyguard” series.

Writer, producer and composer Chuck Lorre ended his thank you speech by saying “Netflix, Netflix, Netflix."

No other networking or streaming service has ever won three wins in television and two in film according to Deadline.

Chief content officer, Ted Sarandos, told analysts last October, “When we invest in an original show, we find, we’re having a better payback in terms of people watching and appreciating Netflix and valuing their subscription.”
