It's competing in three categories: Best Ensemble (the SAGs' Best Picture equivalent), Best Female Actor in a Lead Role (McDormand) and Best Male Actor in a Supporting Role (Rockwell and Woody Harrelson). 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. Sunday's Globes are considered wide open, with contenders including Guillermo del Toro's "The Shape of Water", Steven Spielberg's "The Post" and Martin McDonagh's "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri". She also reminds you that maybe, just maybe, she's in over her head and hasn't truly thought this situation and its potential ramifications through. "I do believe and hope that we can elicit change through the stories we tell and the way we tell them".

But having a Golden Globe doesn't mean you are a lock to win best picture on Oscar night. Not only did Hulu and Amazon score with "The Handmaid's Tale" and "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel", but Netflix's "Master of None" earned a best actor in a TV musical or comedy prize for Aziz Ansari. "We no longer live in the gaps between the stories". 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".

Of course, these Golden Globes were far from ideal.

Oldman had never won a Golden Globe in his 40 year career, so it's encouraging to see him finally lift some gold but there are questions as to whether this is the Oldman performance that deserved to break his awards duck.

But by saving the night's biggest award for a film that - unlike Big Little Lies - nearly glorifies violence - the Golden Globes showed that Hollywood still needs to step up if it wants to be a leader for change.

Laura Dern takes home her fourth Golden Globe, this time for best supporting actress in a limited TV series.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri on Monday won four Golden Globes, including Best Drama, in an overtly political awards ceremony where Hollywood's biggest turned up in black to say it was "Time's Up" for sexual harassment.

Host Seth Meyers is taking center stage as the 2018 Golden Globes are handed out. and "Extra" is here to give you running commentary!

Awarding the Best Actress in a Comedy trophy, Jessica Chastain said, "The victor will receive the 25 percent of her salary that went missing in the wage gap". She profusely thanked her mother, who she said was on a video call. Nominations will be announced in about two weeks.

"Lady Bird", a sweet coming-of-age comedy from first-time director Greta Gerwig, follows a quirky teen (Saoirse Ronan, also a Globe winner) during her tumultuous senior year of high school.

The award for most touching acceptance speech of the night would nearly certainly go to Guillermo del Toro, who paid tribute to the monsters he has always loved as he picked up the Best Director prize. Maisel's Rachel Brosnahan for best actress in a television series, musical or comedy; The Handmaid's Tale for best television series, drama; This Is Us' Sterling K. Brown for best actor in a television series, drama; The Disaster Artist's James Franco for best actor in a motion picture, comedy or musical; and I Tonya's Allison Janney for best actress in a supporting role, motion picture.
