With 2 Golden Globes And 17 Million Subscribers, Hulu Has Arrived

At Sunday’s Golden Globes ceremony, Hulu emerged a major victor , nabbing two big wins, including best drama, for its breakout hit The Handmaid’s Tale . The night was a milestone for the company, which until last year’s Emmys had never won any major awards, but instead had been relegated to sitting on the sidelines while Netflix and Amazon marched up to the podium for shows like House of Cards , Orange is the New Black, and Transparent . This year, Netflix won just one Globe for Aziz Ansari’s performance in Master of Non e, while Amazon matched Hulu by winning  best comedy series and best actress for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel . Two days later, Hulu is capitalizing on its newfound momentum with more good news: The streaming service closed out 2017 with over 17 million subscribers, a 5 million increase from 2016, and grew its total audience to 54 million unique viewers. And for the first time in its history, it hit $1 billion in advertising revenue. These figures don’t yet make it a serious threat to Amazon and Netflix, which have 90 million and 109 million subscribers respectively.
