'Three Billboards' and 'Lady Bird' win Best Picture at Golden Globes

The Golden Globe Awards ceremony this year, which had celebrities crusading against sexual harassment and gender bias, saw special moments and statements galore.

Before the show began, the red carpet was a sea of black.

"Well I have a few things to say", Frances said during the speech. "I'm especially proud and inspired by all the women who felt strong enough and empowered enough to speak up and share their personal stories.This year, we became the story". "Recy Taylor died 10 days ago".

Following the "Time's Up" theme of the night, Oprah moved the crowd by encouraging those to fight against the industry's powerful men. "Their time is up!"

"But their time is up", she added, earning a standing ovation."I want all the girls watching here and now to know that a new day is on the horizon", she added.

For some reason the show bleeped her thanking the film's production company Fox Searchlight. The applause was thunderous.

Frances McDormand won the Golden Globe for best actress in a drama Sunday for "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri", in which she plays a mother determined to find answers over her daughter's murder.

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.

As with the final scenes of "Lady Bird", it takes the courage of one's convictions for a filmmaker to leave the conclusion to their film so deliberately ambiguous, but in McDonagh's case, it's in keeping with his approach to the question I asked at the start of this review, which he steadfastly refuses to answer, preferring instead to let the audience, and his characters, make up their own minds.

Fatih Akin, director/producer, "In the Fade" accepts the award for Best Motion Picture Foreign Language with actress Diane Kruger at the 75th Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, California, U.S. January 7, 2018.

Mexican director Guillermo del Toro won best director for magical fantasy "The Shape of Water". Earlier in the night, Alexandre Desplat was honored with the Best Original Score award for his work on the sci-fi movie. Presenting the Best Actor in a Drama award, Geena Davis said that the victor would give "half of their salary back so that women can make more than them".
