This Year's Golden Globes were loaded in a different way than usual


Frances McDormand is the victor of the best actress in a drama film for her role in "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missiouri".

The evening began with the normally colorful red carpet transformed into a sea of black gowns as every actress showed solidarity with victims of sexual harassment inside and outside the entertainment industry. Sunday's Globes are considered wide open, with contenders including Guillermo del Toro's "The Shape of Water", Steven Spielberg's "The Post" and Martin McDonagh's "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri".

As Larasi, who is the executive director of Imkaan, a British black feminist organisation addressing violence against women of colour, put it, the event was "really an awesome opportunity to just use this platform to highlight all the different issues, and to say time's up on violence against women".

"For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dared speak the truth to the power of those men", Winfrey said, referring to the men - most often white and wealthy - who've historically abused their positions to demean, harass and assault the women who work under them.

The Boss Baby was robbed of its Best Animated Feature Golden Globe award, losing out to Pixar's Coco.

No argument here with McDormand's Best Actress win at the Golden Globes.

Tom Beasley takes a look at the winners and losers from the Golden Globes, and what that means for the Oscars... Those rumours where confirmed last week with the launch of Time's Up sexual harassment prevention plan by prominent Hollywood women including Emma Stone and Reese Witherspoon. And in many cases this year, those awards went to films and TV shows starring or created by women and people of colour, shining a light on the very issues the #TimesUp campaign sought to highlight.

"Big Little Lies" from the television world and "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" from the movie universe won four awards each at the 75th Golden Globe Awards, which saw Indian American actor-comedian Aziz Ansari make history for Asians. But if I thought "Three Billboards" was winning Best Film Drama Actress, Best Film Supporting Actor and Best Screenplay, how could I not assume the Hollywood Foreign Press thought this was the best film of the year?

"Let's keep the conversation alive", Kidman said.

Stars Timothee Chalamet and Armie Hammer were up for Globes for their roles in "Call Me By Your Name", which was also nominated for best motion picture, drama, but the coming-of-age gay romance was snubbed, receiving no awards. Janney was awarded for her portrayal as Tonya Harding's mother in I, Tonya.

Big Little Lies won the most awards in the television categories, including honours for its stars Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern and Alexander Skarsgard. Presenter Natalie Portman pointedly made reference to this when she announced the nominees for Best Director by saying, "And here are the all-male nominees". Those nominations will be announced on January 23.

"The Handmaid's Tale", a Hulu hit about women fighting to survive in a dystopian society in which they are treated like property, landed the award for best TV drama and its lead, Elisabeth Moss, won for best actress in a drama series.
