Gary Oldman took best actor (drama) award for playing Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour, while Saoirse Ronan of Lady Bird and Allison Janney of I, Tonya grabbed best actress in a comedy/musical and best supporting actress, respectively. James Franco took home best actor in a musical or comedy for "The Disaster Artist".

Such a transformation would ring hollow in the hands of a lesser writer, but McDonagh's script manages to sell Rockwell's somewhat redemptive rebirth convincingly while probing what makes people act the way they do, how even the worst seemingly endemic character flaws can be over-ridden in the right - or indeed, "wrong"- circumstances and why basic human decency and respect can be among the most powerful forces for change.

"Call Me By Your Name", a gentle drama about a teen coming to terms with his sexuality in the 1980s Italy, had three nominations, including the Best Motion Picture - Drama.

"Thank you", she said in response to an interviewer's congratulations on her film work.

-Screenplay: Guillermo del Toro, Vanessa Taylor, "The Shape of Water", Greta Gerwig, "Lady Bird", Liz Hannah, Josh Singer, "The Post", Martin McDonagh, "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri", Aaron Sorkin, "Molly's Game". Lead actress Elisabeth Moss won Best Actress in a Drama for her portrayal as June Hosborne.

Best TV Drama was awarded to Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale, which also won the award for Best Drama at the 2017 Emmy Awards.

Meyers, in his first time hosting the Globes, dove straight into material about the sex scandals that have roiled the industry and the "elephant not in the room", Harvey Weinstein. The cable channel won four awards for its limited series Big Little Lies. Although the Globes have honored the future Best Picture Oscar victor only half the time in the past 10 years, the future Academy Award victor took one of the Globes for Best Motion Picture 10 out of 11 times from 1993-2003. Big Little Lies also won for a similar award during the 2017 Emmy Awards.

The 75th annual Golden Globe Awards ceremony was held Sunday evening, January 7, and along with putting the recent wave of sexual harassment allegations in Hollywood in the spotlight once again, the event also reiterated the high profile of streaming content providers in the industry. "It's 2018, marijuana is finally allowed, and sexual harassment finally isn't".

Other big screen winners included "Coco", a fable based on the Mexican holiday of the Day of the Dead that was recognized as the year's best animated film, and "In the Fade", a German film about the aftermath of a bomb attack, that was named the best foreign film.

NBC's reboot of "Will & Grace" is among the nominees for best television comedy series, along with ABC's "Black-ish", Amazon's "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel", Netflix's "Master of None" and Showtime's "SMILF".

I mean, sure, it would have been better to have given one of the many extraordinary women in comedy the privilege of hosting, but it's a rare day that the white bloke who got the gig instead is willing to point that out.

On the television front, it was a big night for streaming series.

But no one took quite as forceful of a stand as Oprah Winfrey, who became the first black woman ever to win the Cecil B DeMille lifetime achievement award and used her acceptance speech to give a searing rebuke of racial injustice, sexual abuse, and attacks on the integrity of the press.

The Globes boosted the Oscar fortunes of "Three Billboards" and "Lady Bird", two critical favorites that have officially broken through in an awards season that began without any clear front-runners.
