75th annual Golden Globe Awards 2018: Check out the list of Achievers

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association also awarded Best Actress to the incredibly deserving Frances McDormand and Best Screenplay to Martin McDonagh. In a night full of glamour, shining women and men, stunning appearances on the red carpet and of course many winners, the glorious ceremony was the trending topic in social media and fashion blogs during the whole night of its transmission.

The movie "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri' was named Best Motion Picture - Drama".

As Larasi, who is the executive director of Imkaan, a British black feminist organisation addressing violence against women of colour, put it, the event was "really an fantastic opportunity to just use this platform to highlight all the different issues, and to say time's up on violence against women".

But it wasn't just sexual harassment that women spoke out against last night: The wage gap between male and female actors, as well as the lack of women in powerful positions in Hollywood, were also remarked upon.

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.

Barbra Streisand used her presenting slot to express outrage that she remains the only woman to win the best director award at the ceremony - and that was back in 1984.

Guillermo del Toro is the victor of the best director Golden Globe Award for his Cold War fairy tale "The Shape of Water".

But if the win came as a shock to you last night, trust us, that's a common occurrence on Globes night and historically it's not a major factor when the Oscars come around.

Laura Dern, who was also honored for her role on "Big Little Lies", condemned the "culture of silence" that was once "normalized" in her industry.

Now freshly minted as the victor of best drama at the Golden Globes, Martin McDonagh simply stunning subversive tale is the first must-see of 2018. His main competition seemed to be Daniel Day-Lewis, who has the "final performance of a legend' narrative going for his starring turn in Phantom Thread". Willem Dafoe's career-best performance in The Florida Project has snatched up almost every critics' award over the past few months and it seemed all but confirmed that he'd do the same thing last night at the Globes.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri took home the award for Best Picture - Drama, surprising many who predicted the award would go to The Post or The Shape of Water. Even in the run-up to the awards, at a string of pre-parties before the night, actresses like Allison Williams, Jessica Chastain and Nicole Kidman stuck to sombre monochrome. "It's 2018. Marijuana is finally allowed and sexual harassment finally isn't", quipped Globes host Seth Meyers in his opening remarks, bringing wild applause from the A-list audience in Beverly Hills.

"Best Original Song" went to the musical film The Greatest Showman for its song "This Is Me", and Disney Pixar's Coco took home the award for "Best Animated Motion Picture". "We'd have been f***ed if she hadn't said yes!"

The Oscar-winning Irish writer and director is looking to pick up another statue or two this awards season.

By contrast, James Franco - named best actor in a comedy or musical for The Disaster Artist - named a couple of dozen people in his acceptance speech and mentioned only one woman, his mother.
