Golden Globes: Why Big Little Lies Is Switching Directors for Season 2

As for those of you keeping score on film, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri claimed four Golden Globes, including for Best Drama, for Frances McDormand in the lead actress category, Martin McDonagh for screenplay and for supporting actor for Sam Rockwell.

"Call Me by Your Name is nominated for Best Motion Picture".

"Margaret Atwood, this is for you, and for all of the women who came before you and after you who were fearless enough to speak out about tolerance and injustice", she said.

For anyone who holds populist award ceremonies to be the end-all, be-all of critical applications, Big Little Lies was one of THE must-watch series from 2017.

Nicole Kidman, Alexander Skarsgård, Laura Dern all won in their respective acting categories, and then the show itself won the Golden Globe for best limited series.

Carol Burnett got a standing ovation before announcing the victor, along with Jennifer Aniston, of best actress in a musical or comedy, which went to Rachel Brosnahan of Amazon's The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, about a young housewife in the late '50s, having a go at stand-up comedy after her husband leaves her. "We are here for the work". The Globes also repeated the Emmys in giving awards to Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale" for best drama and Elisabeth Moss of that series as best actress.

"Big Little Lies" was once again showered with awards, leading the list of TV winners at the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards. In the biggest upset of the evening, Jordan Peele's fiercely satirical, and completely topical, horror-comedy, Get Out, was shut out entirely.

Nicole - who, along with the majority of the room, wore black as part of the anti-harassment Time's Up initiative- said: "This character that I played represents something that is the centre of our conversation right now: abuse".

She told all females watching that "a new day is on the horizon". All of them talked about Hollywood's responsibility to tell stories about strong women.

And while Reese Witherspoon's decree that "Oprah's hugs could end wars", was verging on the absurd, the image neatly captured the animating spirit of the 75th Golden Globe Awards: men have created a messy world, but women will save us.
