The female stars of Big Little Lies

The 75th Golden Globes are done and dusted, so here are the main things we'll take away from the evening.

  • It was all very charged. Practically every winner - and quite a few presenters too - used their moment in the spotlight to pay tribute to women who have spoken out against sexual harassment, call time on the Hollywood status quo or comment on gender pay disparity in the entertainment industry.
  • The most powerful speech of the night came from special honoree Oprah Winfrey, who spoke passionately and eloquently in support of a free press, women "speaking their truth" and "a new day dawning on the horizon".
  • Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and Big Little Lies were the big winners, taking home four awards apiece. The former won acting awards for Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell, while the latter saw three of its cast members - Nicole Kidman, Alexander Skarsgard and Laura Dern - recognised.
  • It was an okay night for the Brits, with awards for Gary Oldman, Ewan McGregor and Three Billboards' Martin McDonagh.
  • From a fashion point of view, black was very much in. Barely anyone dared to deviate from the unofficial dress code, making for something of a sombre evening sartorially.
  • Seth Meyers started well with an opening monologue full of zingers against Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey. As the evening went on, though, he increasingly became a peripheral presence who often found himself having to talk over a chatty crowd who clearly had better things to do than listen to his links.
  • At just over three hours, the evening felt long, earnest and a little worthy. Past Globes, particularly those hosted by Ricky Gervais, have been characterised by their looser atmosphere and alcohol-fuelled levity. This year, though, there was little room - or indeed enthusiasm - for letting it rip.

Winners in full

In case you missed any, you can find a complete list of this year's Golden Globe winners here.

Best motion picture - drama

Frances McDormand in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

And the final award of the evening goes to Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, which beats Call Me by Your Name, Dunkirk, The Post and The Shape of Water to be named best film drama.

Its victory brings the ceremony to a slightly muted ending, enlivened slightly by Sam Rockwell stepping up to the microphone (after producer Graham Broadbent) to thank his agent.

One of the tightest races of the night is won by Frances McDormand for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

Some had expected Britain's Sally Hawkins to nick it for The Shape of Water, but in the end it was the Fargo Oscar winner who swung the votes of the HFPA membership.

McDormand - who gets a thumbs up from Meryl Streep for promising to buy drinks for her fellow nominees - thanks the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, not least "for electing a female president" in Meher Tatna.

She also has this to say in a speech whose occasionally fruity language tests the reflexes of the NBC censors.

It was really great to be in this room tonight and be part of a tectonic shift in the power structure.

Trust me, the women in this room are not here for the food. They're in it for the work.

Best actor in a motion picture - drama

Gary Oldman

British actor Gary Oldman scoops the award for his portrayal as Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour.

And he made sure to thank the wartime prime minister himself in his acceptance speech.

He told the audience:

I'm very proud of Darkest Hour. It illustrates that words and actions can change the world - and boy, oh boy, does it need some changing.

He also thanked the make up artists who transformed him 63 times, and gave a special thanks to his wife Gisele Schmidt.

She would say to friends, 'I go to bed with Winston Churchill and wake up with Gary Oldman.' Which I suppose is better than the other way around.

Best motion picture - comedy or musical

And the award goes to... Lady Bird!

Nice to see a film written and directed by a woman get this prize in this year of all years, especially as Greta Gerwig was rather questionably denied a best director nod.

In a breathless speech, the 34-year-old thanks her female leads Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf - "the goddesses" - before paying tribute to her home town.

I want to thank the people of Sacramento who gave me roots and wings and helped me get where I am today.

Lady Bird is her directorial debut.

Ireland's Saoirse Ronan beats Emma Stone, Margot Robbie and a pair of Dames - Judi Dench and Helen Mirren - to be named best actress in a comedy or musical for the charming coming-of-age tale Lady Bird.

The 23-year-old gives a shout-out to her mother Monica, who she says is watching on FaceTime. (Other videotelephony services are available.)

She also says "how inspirational it is to be in this room tonight".

Best television limited series or motion picture made for television

Hard to be too surprised at Big Little Lies beating Fargo, Feud, The Sinner and Top of the Lake to the best miniseries award.

It's the show's fourth award of the night, after Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern and Alexander Skarsgard's acting accolades earlier.

Here's what star and executive producer Reese Witherspoon had to say about the evening's dominant theme.

I want to thank everyone who broke their silence this year and spoke out against abuse and harassment. You are so brave.

We see you. We hear you. And we will tell your stories.

Best director - motion picture

Guillermo del Toro

The award goes to Mexico's Guillermo del Toro for The Shape of Water, a beguiling fable about a mute janitor who falls for an amphibian fish creature. (Yes, really.)

Before he wins, though, presenter Natalie Portman makes the point that all of the directors up for the award this year are male.

It's the director's first Golden Globe - a point he makes when he is nearly played off stage. Luckily, he's given a bit more time to finish his speech.

Oprah Winfrey gets standing ovation for powerful speech

Oprah Winfrey

Actress and chat show legend Oprah Winfrey, winner of this year's Cecil B DeMille award for "outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment", brings the audience to their feet with a rousing speech.

As the first black woman to get the award, she says it is "an honor and a privilege". But she also has powerful words to say about the importance of a free press - and the importance of speaking out against intolerance and abuse.

We know the press is under siege these days. We also know it's the insatiable dedication to uncovering the absolute truth that keeps us from turning a blind eye to corruption and to injustice. To tyrants and victims, and secrets and lies.

What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have. And I'm especially proud and inspired by all the women who have felt strong enough and empowered enough to speak up and share their personal stories.

I want tonight to express gratitude to all the women who have endured years of abuse and assault because they, like my mother, had children to feed and bills to pay and dreams to pursue. They're the women whose names we'll never know.

For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of brutally powerful men. But their time is up. Their time is up!

I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon. And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say 'Me too' again.

Best actor in a television series - musical or comedy

Aziz Ansari

This one goes to Aziz Ansari, for Master of None - which he created, as well as being its star.

It's his first Golden Globe - though he's been nominated before.

I genuinely didn't think I was going to win, because all the websites said I was going to lose.

I'm glad we won this one, because it would have really sucked to lose two of these in a row.

He also thanks Italy, "for all the amazing food we ate in season two".

Ansari, 34, is the first Asian American actor to win a Golden Globe for best leading performance in a TV comedy.

Best television series - comedy

This one goes to Amazon's The Marvelous Mrs Maisel - its second award of the night.

Series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino should also win the awards for best headgear, as she's sporting a truly fantastic hat, and for this on-stage comment:

I'm going backstage. Is there cheese backstage?

Best actor in a limited series or motion picture made for television

Ewan McGregor in Fargo

Another British winner!

Ewan McGregor thanks his Fargo co-star Mary Elizabeth Winstead (also believed to be his partner) - as well as his estranged wife Eve Mavrakis, "who always stood by me for 22 years" - in his acceptance speech.

The Scotsman also gives thanks to his four children and says he has "always loved being an actor".

Best foreign language film

Diane Kruger and Fatih Akin

Hugh Grant reunites with Sarah Jessica Parker - his co-star in 2009's Did You Hear About the Morgans? - to present this year's best foreign film award to Germany's In the Fade.

Director Fatih Akin is joined on stage by actress Diane Kruger, who stars in the film as a mother whose husband and son are killed in a neo-Nazi bomb attack.

The film's win comes at the expense of both Palme d'Or winner The Square and Angelina Jolie's Cambodia-set Netflix title First They Killed My Father.

Best movie screenplay

Kirk Douglas with Catherine Zeta-Jones

A standing ovation for Kirk Douglas, who turned 101 last month yet is here regardless, in a wheelchair, to soak up the plaudits of the Golden Globe audience.

He's here with daughter-in-law Catherine Zeta-Jones to present the award for best movie screenplay to dark comedy drama Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

Britain's Martin McDonagh, who also directed the film, collects the prize and says hello to his mother, "who likes this kind of thing".

Best supporting actress - motion picture

Alison Janney

Alison Janney wins for her role as Tonya Harding's tough-as-nails mother LaVona in I, Tonya.

The former West Wing star says the former figure skater is in the audience and thanks her for "sharing her story".

This is a story about truth and the perception of truth... It's an extraordinary movie. I'm so proud of it.

Best animated film

A scene from Coco

No surprise here as Pixar win for Coco, its Day of the Dead-themed animation about a Mexican boy who takes a trip to the afterlife.

Best supporting actress in a series, limited series or motion picture made for television

Laura Dern with Monica Ramirez

Another win for Big Little Lies - its third - as Laura Dern wins another Golden Globe - her fourth.

The actress - recently seen in Star Wars: The Last Jedi - thanks show creator David E Kelley for allowing her to play "the most outrageous, complicated woman and a terrified mother".

"I urge all of us to not only support survivors but to protect and employ them [and] to teach our children that speaking out without fear of retribution is our new north star," she goes on to say.

Dern was joined on the red carpet earlier by Monica Ramirez, the co-founder of Alianza Nacional de Campesinas (National Alliance of Farmers).

Margaret Atwood congratulates Handmaid's Tale team

James Franco wins this award for playing legendarily bad director Tommy Wiseau in The Disaster Artist - and celebrates by inviting Wiseau to join him on stage.

His victory comes at the expense of Britain's Daniel Kaluuya, who had been in the running for his breakout role in Get Out.

Best original song - motion picture

Kelly Clarkson and Keith Urban - that's Mr Nicole Kidman to you - pair up to present The Greatest Showman with the best song award for its uplifting anthem This Is Me.

In other music news, France's Alexandre Desplat wins the award for best original score - motion picture for The Shape of Water.

It's the first win for the film with the most nominations tonight.

    Alexander Skarsgard

    That's a lot of writing to get onto any award, so congratulations to Alexander Skarsgard for winning it for his role as an abusive husband in Big Little Lies.

    The actor - son of Stellan, by the way - thanks fellow winner Nicole Kidman for giving him "the greatest experience of [his] career".

    I am here tonight because I had the privilege of working with a group of extraordinarily talented women.

    Best television series - drama

    A second award of the evening for The Handmaid's Tale, Hulu's much-praised adaptation of Margaret Atwood's dystopian 1985 novel.

    Best actor in a television series - drama

    Sterling K Brown

    Sterling K Brown wins this award for This Is Us, one year on from missing out on a Golden Globe for his role in The People Vs OJ Simpson.

    The actor thanks the show's creator, Dan Fogelman, for writing him "a role for a black man that can only be played by a black man".

    What I appreciate so much about this thing is that I'm being seen for who I am and being appreciated for who I am. And it makes it that much more difficult to dismiss me or dismiss anybody who looks like me."

    Brown just made history by the way by becoming the first black male to be named best lead actor in a TV drama at the Golden Globes.

    Best actress in a television series - drama

    And the winner is... Elisabeth Moss for The Handmaid's Tale.

    She dedicated her win to Margaret Atwood, author of the book the series is based on.

    This is for Margaret Atwood and all the women who came before and after you who were brave enough to speak out... We no longer live in the blank white spaces or at the edge of the print. We are the stories and we are writing them ourselves.

    Best actress in a television series - musical or comedy

    Rachel Brosnahan

    Rachel Brosnahan wins this for The Marvelous Mrs Maisel.

    Jennifer Aniston and Carol Burnett appear on stage to hand out this award.

    But before they do so, Aniston gives a tug to Burnett's ear and gets called "kinky" for doing so.

    Here's what Brosnahan had to say as she picked up her prize for her role as a '50s housewife who sets out to become a stand-up comedian.

    This is a story about a bold and brilliant and complicated woman, and I am endlessly proud to be a part of it, but there are so many women's stories out there that still need and deserve to be told.

    Best supporting actor - motion picture

    And the winner is... Sam Rockwell for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

    Rockwell, pictured with partner Leslie Bibb, takes the award for his role as law officer Jason Dixon in the Martin McDonagh film and admits he is "shaking" as he picks it up.

    It's a movie about compassion, and we need some of that.

    Rockwell's win means Christopher Plummer, nominated for All the Money in the World, misses out. He replaced Kevin Spacey in the Ridley Scott film.

    ...Nicole Kidman, named best actress in a limited series or motion picture made for television for Big Little Lies.

    The Australian star speaks of "the power of women" as she pays tribute to her female co-stars and trumpets drama as an organ of change.

    I do believe and hope we can elicit change through the stories we tell."

    Set-ups and punchlines

    A funny bit next, with Meyers calling on celebrities to give the pay-off lines to set-ups he delivered.

    Here's what Jessica Chastain had to say about the Golden Globes turning 75.

    But the actress who played its wife is still only 32.

    'Elephant not in the room'

    Harvey Weinstein

    Seth Meyers went on to refer to the "elephant not in the room" - namely Harvey Weinstein, the producer whose alleged misconduct kicked off the deluge of revelations about sexual harassment in Hollywood.

    The host suggested Weinstein's next appearance at the Golden Globes would be "in 20 years", when he would be "the first person booed during the In Memoriam" segment.

    Weinstein denies all allegations of non-consensual sex.

    Seth Meyers gets things started

    Host Seth Meyers has got the evening started with a string of zingers about the sexual harassment scandal.

    Here's a selection of them.

    Good evening ladies and remaining gentlemen."

    Happy new year Hollywood. It's 2018, marijuana is finally allowed and sexual harassment finally isn't."

    This was the year of Big Little Lies and Get Out - and also the TV series Big Little Lies and the movie Get Out."

    There's a new era under way, and I can tell because it's been years since a white man was this nervous in Hollywood."

    For the male nominees this will be the first time in three months it won't be terrifying to hear their name read out loud."

    And we're off!

    The ceremony is finally getting started, so it's time to leave the red carpet and head inside the Beverly Hilton's international ballroom.

    Say it with black

    Seen enough black frocks yet? No? Good, because here are some more for you.
