'Big Little Lies', 'Three Billboards…' win big at 75th Golden Globes

The big victor at Sunday night's Golden Globe Awards was Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter's murder case, Mildred Hayes (Academy Award® victor Frances McDormand) makes a bold move, commissioning three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby (Academy Award® nominee Woody Harrelson), the town's revered chief of police.

-Supporting Actor: Willem Dafoe, "The Florida Project", Armie Hammer, "Call Me by Your Name", Richard Jenkins, "The Shape of Water", Christopher Plummer, "All the Money in the World", Sam Rockwell, "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri".

Nicole Kidman paid a touching tribute to her husband Keith Urban as she accepted the award for best performance by an actress in a limited series for Big Little Lies. 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. While accepting her trophy, she said: "I'm going to keep it short because we've been here a long time and we need some tequila".

The Boss Baby was robbed of its Best Animated Feature Golden Globe award, losing out to Pixar's Coco.

Films like Lady Bird and The Shape of Water also won big awards and from the other side, shows Big Little Lies,The Handmaid's Tale, The Marvelous Mrs Maisel did well in the TV categories.

A complete list of the nominees and award winners can be viewed on the Golden Globes official website. There are separate competitions for the best drama film as well as the best comedy and musical picture.

"Folks, time's up", she said.

The Netflix series "Stranger Things 2", written, created and directed by The Duffer Brothers (Matt and Ross) of Durham, was nominated for two - Best TV Drama Series and David Harbour for Best Supporting Actor.

The Oscar victor for Best Actress has also won a Golden Globe in 17 out of the past 20 years (with the asterisk that the Globes pick TWO Best Actress winners, one for drama and one for musical or comedy, every year).

Sunday night's black-clad protest was promoted by the recently formed Time's Up: an initiative of hundreds of women in the entertainment industry -including Streep, Williams, Dern and the night's Cecil B. DeMille honoree, Oprah Winfrey - who have banded together to advocate for gender parity in executive ranks and legal defense aid for sexual harassment victims.

Fan favorite "Game of Thrones" won no awards at the Globes. "I do believe and hope that we can elicit change through the stories we tell and the way we tell them".

Irish actress Ronan was named best actress in a film comedy for Lady Bird, while James Franco won the equivalent award for best actor for The Disaster Artist. (Personally, my pick would be Hawkins for The Shape of Water, but that's another article.) McDormand is a familiar name to movie fans, but I wonder if enough people will have seen Three Billboards or if her character is likable enough for Academy voters to support.

The Handmaid's Tale won Best Drama Series and star Elisabeth Moss won Best Actress in a Drama Series for her performance in the Hulu series.
