So it was the much-talked about Golden Globes awards ceremony on Sunday. Seth Myers hosted but Oprah, the #TimesUp and #MeToo campaigns and the controversies surrounding James Franco all remain strong talking points from the night. Here’s our round-up of some of the things you may have missed.

The coveted Best Film category was picked up by Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri. Frances McDormand’s electric offering is reminiscent of her performance in Fargo, just a bit grittier. It landed the Best Actress award on the night. With 6 nominations and 4 wins, Three Billboards was always going to be a frontrunner at the awards and it didn’t disappoint.

Gary Oldman continued along his accolade fuelled journey to The Oscars by picking up the award for Best Actor on Sunday. His portrayal of Winston Churchill in The Darkest Hour has lead to pretty much everyone to tipping him for the Academy Award come March. Unbelievably, this award was his first ever Golden Globe nomination and win, lets hope he can go one further again this year.

The Handmaid’s Tale also continued it’s tremendous run at award ceremonies. The dystopian masterpiece claimed the renowned Best TV Series (Drama) for it’s warped (or not so warped) outlook of the future of The United States. Elisabeth Moss’ incredible, all-conquering rise to stardom shows no signs of letting up either. She won Best Actress in a Drama Television Series, dedicating it to all of her female co-stars, proving to be a highlight during a night of incredibly moving speeches and testimonials.

There was also another first on the evening, with Aziz Ansari picking up the Best Actor in a TV Series for his role in Master of None, a comedy series that he created himself.  He has been a bit-part actor in several contemporary comedies but he’s found himself a niche comedic area and has been catapulted into notoriety.

That concludes our round up of this year’s Golden Globes’ results. Next up, The BAFTAS in February then onto The Oscars in March!
