Globes: McDormand wins Best Actress Drama, praises tectonic

Globes: McDormand wins Best Actress Drama, praises tectonic

"Trust me, the women in this room tonight are not here for the food", she said.

"Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri", filmed in and around Sylva, N.C., grabbed its first award in the first half hour of the program, with Sam Rockwell winning Best Performance in a Supporting Role for playing the maddeningly complex Deputy Dixon.

She also ribbed the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which hands out the Globes, saying she still didn't know who they are but credited them for electing a female president.

She dedicated her win to her castmates, daughters and mother, saying: "Wow, the power of women".

However, there was no bleep to be found when she later used a slang term for excrement. Sterling K. Brown won Best Actor in a Drama Series for This is Us, while Big Little Lies ruled the TV Movie and Miniseries categories. "All you ladies in this category, bar, tequila's on me".

The 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards are now over, with all winners officially announced in a ceremony earlier today in Hollywood, California.


Greta Gerwig, whose directorial debut Lady Bird was named best musical or comedy film, could be seen being hugged by her film's star, Saoirse Ronan, as Streisand made her comments.

At the same time, McDonagh refuses to let McDormand off the hook for the collateral damage incurred in her quest, nor does any other character escape the narrative without getting called on the carpet for their misdeeds, not even Woody Harrelson as the well-intentioned and mostly sympathetic police chief.

But to many watching the show at home - and perhaps some of those in the ballroom at the Beverly Hilton Sunday night - Three Billboards' domination felt out of step with the moment.

Laura Dern, a supporting actress victor for "Big Little Lies", said: "May we teach our children that speaking out without retribution is our culture's new north star". Alexander Skarsgard and Laura Dern both took home the awards for Best Supporting Actor and Actress in a TV Series, Miniseries, or TV Movie, respectively.

Allison Janney won her first career Golden Globe, earning the supporting actress prize for her work in "I, Tonya", the story of figure skater Tonya Harding and her famed rivalry with Nancy Kerrigan. "I do believe and hope that we can elicit change through the stories we tell and the way we tell them".
