Golden Globes kick off awards show season

Golden Globes kick off awards show season

The 75th annual Golden Globes ceremony has taken place in Beverly Hills, with Gary Oldman, Nicole Kidman and Frances McDormand among the big winners on the night.

Mildred Hayes (McDormand) wants justice for the rape and murder of her daughter Angela, and isn't happy with the local police's lack of progress in that investigation.

HBO's "Big Little Lies" took home four awards, including Best TV, movie, or limited series.

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. Then there was the young, charming Armie Hammer ("Call Me By Your Name"), who certainly fits the profile of a Globe victor, and Richard Jenkins ("The Shape of Water"), the likable veteran.

"We feel sort of emboldened in this particular moment to stand together in a thick black line", Streep said.

The film had also been shut out of most of the Golden Globes nominations - nothing for screenwriter and director Jordan Peele, for example - so it losing Best Comedy/Musical to the equally adored Lady Bird wasn't a shock. Janney was awarded for her portrayal as Tonya Harding's mother in I, Tonya.

Then there's the coming-of-age mother-daughter comedy "Lady Bird" which won Best Comedy, and saw Saoirse Ronan take home Best Comedy Actress; and, of course, Best Director victor Guillermo del Toro's romantic fantasy "The Shape of Water" which also won Best Original Score.

The Golden Globes has become known for two things: watching your favorite stars drink too much and then have to get up on stage to accept an award (it's one of the few events during awards season where the audience is given food and drinks), and the surprise winners.

Eric McCormack is nominated for best actor in a comedy series for the "Will & Grace" reboot, along with Anthony Anderson of "Black-ish", Aziz Ansari for "Master of None", Kevin Bacon of "I Love Dick" and William H. Macy for "Shameless".

Fox Star Studio is all set to release its top hits that won big at the Golden Globe Awards this year in India.

McDormand said she was proud to be a woman in the industry. The show won the Emmy Award previous year for best limited series and will return for a second season on HBO. "I do believe and I hope that we can elicit change through the stories we tell, and the way we tell them".

Tomlin should also have received, at the very least, an Oscar-nod for that tour de force: hopefully, McDormand will now be in the running to collect her first Academy Award since her 1994 win for the Coen brothers classic, Fargo. Guillermo del Toro got the Best Director nod for "The Shape of Water", beating out an all-male nominee line-up.

-Actress, Drama: Caitriona Balfe, "Outlander", Claire Foy, "The Crown", Maggie Gyllenhaal, "The Deuce", Katherine Langford, "13 Reasons Why", Elisabeth Moss, "The Handmaid's Tale".
