The 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards are now over, with all winners officially announced in a ceremony earlier today in Hollywood, California.

Critically acclaimed film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri came up strong, winning the award for best film for drama, while Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell also won awards for their roles in the film, winning best actress and supporting actor respectively. The film also took home the award for best screenplay.

For a musical or comedy film however, Lady Bird accepted the award for best film, while actress Saoirse Ronan won the award for best actress for her role in the film. Director Guillermo del Toro won his first ever Globe for best director, for The Shape of Water, which also won best original score.

James Franco took home best actor in a musical or comedy for his much celebrated performance in The Disaster Artist, while awards for best foreign language movie and best animated film were awarded to In The Fade and Coco respectively.

It’s a big night for television at the Globes as well, with Big Little Lies also landing four trophies – three acting gongs for Alexander Skarsgard, Laura Dern and Nicole Kidman, and the show taking home best limited series.

The Handsmaid’s Tale also lived up to its critical acclaim, winning the award for best TV series (Drama), with Elizabeth Moss also walking away with the best actress trophy for her role in the series.

The Amazon series from the creators of Gilmore Girls, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel also finished strong, taking home awards for best television series – musical or comedy, while awarding Rachel Brosnahan as best actress. Sterling K. Brown, meanwhile, made history by becoming the first African American actor to win Best Actor in a Drama for his work in This Is Us.

Ewan McGregor took home best actor in a limited TV series for his multiple performance in Fargo. Gary Oldman also won his first ever Globe for portraying Winston Churchill in the acclaimed Darkest Hour.. Aziz Ansari won best actor in a TV series musical or comedy for his role in the wildly popular Netflix series Master of None. Allison Janney rounded out the awards, winning best supporting actress in any movie for her role in I, Tonya.

While music is not a major portion of the awards, it didn’t stop The Greatest Showman winning best original song in a movie, “This is Me”.

But it could be argued the night belonged to Oprah Winfrey, who was the receipient of the Cecil B. De Mille award. With multiple standing ovations, she delivered a rousing and powerful speech regarding the impact of sexual harassment which has been recently brought to attention, particularly in the film industry.

She wasn’t the only one to highlight the Post-Weinstein era of Hollywood, with host Seth Meyers giving it plenty of attention in his well received monologue, while actresses Barbara Streisand and Natalie Portman drew attention to the lack of female Directors nominated at the awards.
