Here is what happened:
Daisy Jones & the Six is taking center stage this award season. After readers fell in love with the fictional (and slightly dysfunctional) rock band at the center of Taylor Jenkins Reid’s bestselling novel, Amazon Prime Video’s highly anticipated adaptation premiered in March, bringing the complicated love triangle between lead singers Billy Dunne (Sam Claflin) and Daisy Jones (Riley Keough) and Billy’s wife Camila (Camila Morrone) to life. The cast’s performances were so moving, in fact, that they’ve been recognized by several award shows, including the Golden Globes. That’s right, the show earned a nod for Best Limited Series, Anthology Series or Television Motion Picture category, while Riley was recognized in the Best Female Actor – Limited Series, Anthology Series or Television Motion Picture category and Sam was nominated for Best Male Actor – Limited Series, Anthology Series or Television Motion Picture.
The show was also recognized by the Emmy Awards, earning a total of six nominations. As in the book, there was a lot of sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll and fans got to hear The Six’s music brought to life, with many of Reid’s original lyrics included. The series’ final scene is Daisy smiling at Billy after he shows up at her home.
Daisy Jones & the Six is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video. For a full recap of the 2024 Golden Globe Awards, watch E! News Monday, Jan. 8, at 11 p.m. on E!
