Golden Globe Awards 2018: Winners' checklist

Golden Globe Awards 2018: Winners' checklist

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri on Monday won four Golden Globes, including Best Drama, in an overtly political awards ceremony where Hollywood's biggest turned up in black to say it was "Time's Up" for sexual harassment.

"The Shape of Water", which entered the race with maximum seven nominations, won the Best Director for Guillermo del Toro and the Best Score for Alexandre Desplat.

At its heart, Three Billboard Outside Ebbing, Missouri is built around grieving mother Mildred Hayes' (a quite brilliant Frances McDormand) quest for justice. And since the Academy Awards don't divide the actor categories by drama and comedy like the Globes, the competition will be even more fierce.

Frances McDormand has won her first Golden Globe award - and accepted it with a passionate, occasionally-bleeped speech befitting the woman she plays in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

James Franco won the comedy actor award for his cult movie homage "The Disaster Artist", also from A24. The award goes to Saorise Ronan for her performance in "Lady Bird".

Awarding the Best Actress in a Comedy trophy, Jessica Chastain said, "The victor will receive the 25 percent of her salary that went missing in the wage gap". The Shape of Water was the most nominated film of the night but most of us didn't foresee it winning in the major categories, fearing it would be seen as too esoteric for voters.

The movie is now in the shortlist of 9 films for the Foreign Language category at the Academy Awards. The HBO limited series also won the top prize for Best Miniseries or TV Movie. Nicole Kidman just took home best actress for "Big Little Lies". Jessica Biel of "The Sinner" rounds out the category.

-Actor, Movie or Limited Series: Robert De Niro, "The Wizard of Lies".

Netflix has two shows in the best drama category - "Stranger Things" and "The Crown", which won the prize past year. The Handmaid's Tale beat out Stranger Things, Game of Thrones, This is Us and The Crown for the accolade.

-Actor, Drama: Jason Bateman, "Ozark", Sterling K. Brown, "This is Us", Freddie Highmore, "The Good Doctor", Bob Odenkirk, "Better Call Saul", Liev Schreiber, "Ray Donovan".

-Actress, Series, Musical or Comedy: Rachel Brosnahan, "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel". All the Rockies from the entertainment world from your favorite shows and movies join the stage for the 75th edition of the prestigious award show that is being hosted by Seth Meyers at the Beverly Hilton, in Los Angeles, California.

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.

Since the Hollywood Foreign Press Association divided the film category into two formats for the Golden Globes in 1963, almost 65 percent of the films that ended up with best picture Academy Awards had first received a Golden Globe.

Ewan McGregor won his first Golden Globe for his role in Fargo, and took the opportunity to thank both his estranged wife, Eve Mavrakis, and rumoured new girlfriend and costar Mary Elizabeth Winstead.

But another thing that comes from the awards is an idea about which film might be taking home the Oscars, the BAFTAs, and all the other statuettes that can be received around this time of year.
