Steven Spielberg wins Best Director

Hollywood legend Steven Spielberg won the Best Director - Motion Picture at the Golden Globes for his semi-autobiographical film 'The Fabelmans'. This is his third win and 20th nomination at the Golden Globes.

Accepting the award for his autobiographical drama, Spielberg said: "I've been hiding from this story since I was 17 years old. I put a lot of things in my way of this story," reports 'Variety'.

He continued:

"I told this story in parts and parcels all through my career. 'E.T.' Has a lot to do with this story. 'Close Encounters' has a lot to do with this story. But I never had the courage to hit this story head-on until ('Fabelmans' co-writer) Tony Kushner (and I) were working on 'Munich' a long time ago, (and he) started telling me about all these stories about (his) life. And we started a conversation."

He further mentioned, quoted by 'Variety':

"The conversation lasted all through 'Munich,' all through 'Lincoln' and 'West Side Story'. And my wife Kate was always saying, 'You have to tell this'. And during COVID, I didn't know if any of us were going to have the chance to tell any of our stories again in March, April, May of 2020".

Spielberg added:

"Everything I've done up to this point has made me ready to finally be honest about the fact that it's not easy to be a kid. The fact that everybody sees me as a success story... But nobody really knows who we are until we're courageous enough to tell everyone who we are. And I spent a lot of time trying to figure out when I could tell that story and I figured it out when I turned 74 years old. I said, 'You better do it now'. And I'm really, really happy I did."
