Oprah Winfrey became the first black woman to be awarded a Golden Globe for lifetime achievement on Sunday, delivering an impassioned speech in support of those who have exposed sexual misconduct in Hollywood and beyond.

"And when that new day finally dawns it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure they become leaders that take us to the time where nobody has to say 'me too' again," Winfrey said, referencing the social media movement raising awareness about sexual harassment.

"I want to express gratitude to all the women who have endured years of abuse and assault because they, like my mother, had children to feed and bills to pay and dreams to pursue."

Frances McDormand wins actress drama Globe

Frances McDormand won the Golden Globe for best actress in a drama Sunday for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, in which she plays a mother determined to find answers over her daughter's murder.

McDormand, whose film also won the best drama movie, triumphed in a field that included Meryl Streep in journalism thriller The Post and Sally Hawkins in fantasy romance The Shape of Water.

'Three Billboards' wins Golden Globe for best drama movie

Martin McDonagh's Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri won the big prize of the night at Sunday's Golden Globes - best drama motion picture.

The crime drama, which also won Frances McDormand a best actress trophy, faced tough competition from Call Me by Your Name, Dunkirk, The Post and The Shape of Water.

Oldman wins Golden Globe for best drama actor

Gary Oldman on Sunday won the Golden Globe for best actor in a film drama for Darkest Hour, his portrayal of Winston Churchill's steely leadership of Britain in the Second World War.

Oldman, who has previously criticised the Golden Globes, thanked both the awards organisers and the late prime minister as he beat a crowded field of contenders including Tom Hanks for The Post.

'Lady Bird' wins Golden Globe for best comedy movie

Coming-of-age film Lady Bird on Sunday won the Golden Globe for best musical or comedy film, defeating a clutch of top-rated films including dark race satire Get Out and PT Barnum biopic The Greatest Showman.

Director Greta Gerwig accepted the award, praising her incredible stars Saoirse Ronan - also a Globe winner for her portrayal of the title teen - and Laurie Metcalf, who plays her mother.

And the best actress award goes to...

Germany's 'In the Fade' wins Golden Globe

In the Fade, the German thriller about neo-Nazi violence, on Sunday won the Golden Globe for best foreign language film.

The film triumphed in a category that included Swedish black comedy The Square, which took the Palme d'Or at Cannes, and First They Killed My Father, the true story of a Cambodian child soldier directed by Angelina Jolie.

Del Toro wins gong

The Golden Globe for best director went to Guillermo del Toro for The Shape of Water. 

In what was deemed one of the closest categories going into the night, Del Toro beat Martin McDonagh (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri), Christopher Nolan (Dunkirk), Ridley Scott (All the Money in the World) and Steven Spielberg (The Post) to the prize.

Franco wins best actor award

James Franco won best actor in a comedy Golden Globe for The Disaster Artist. 

Franco won for his portrayal of the director of one of the most panned movies in history.

Franco triumphed in a field that included Daniel Kaluuya, the star of the racial thriller Get Out, and Steve Carell for his portrayal of chauvinistic tennis champion Bobby Riggs in Battle of the Sexes.

Winning his second Golden Globe, Franco brought to the stage the man he portrayed, Tommy Wiseau, maker of the disparaged 2003 film "The Room."

"This was billed as a movie about making the best worst movie ever made but, in fact, it's a story of friendship," Franco said, with Wiseau at his side.

Best supporting actor

Sam Rockwell won the Golden Globe for best supporting actor for his role as an angry police officer in the dark comedy Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

Rockwell bested Willem Dafoe ("The Florida Project"), Armie Hammer ("Call Me by Your Name"), Richard Jenkins ("The Shape of Water") and Christopher Plummer ("All the Money in the World").

Winning a Golden Globe for the first time, Rockwell noted that he had often starred in indie films and said: "It's nice to be in a movie that people see."

Kidman wins at Golden Globes

The first award of the night, perhaps fittingly, went to one of Hollywood's most powerful women: Nicole Kidman, for her performance in HBO's The Big Little Lies, a series she and Reese Witherspoon also produced. She chalked the win up to "the power of women."

Big Little Lies, which came in the leading TV nominee, won three acting awards, including supporting actress for Laura Dern.

"May we teach all of our children that speaking out without fear of retribution is our new North Star," said Dern, accepting her Globe.

Hollywood stars wear black

Host Seth Meyers kicked off the Golden Globes night with fantasy romance The Shape of Water leading the nominations.

This year’s ceremony is seen as the first big opportunity for the industry to unite against a pervasive culture of sexual misconduct in Hollywood, and stars wore black on the red carpet to mark the occasion.

“This was the year of ‘big little lies’ and ‘get out’ — and also the television series Big Little Lies and the movie Get Out, Meyers said, joking about the sexual harassment scandals that have rocked the industry.

Billed as the most raucous event in the showbiz calendar, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s annual prize-giving is a draw for filmmakers and actors looking to create some buzz ahead of the Oscars in March.

But this year’s ceremony, seen as the first big opportunity for the industry to unite against a pervasive culture of sexual misconduct brought to light by the downfall of disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, may strike a more sombre tone.

Actors and actresses turned out in black this year in solidarity with victims of Weinstein and numerous other figures exposed by the harassment and abuse scandal, including Kevin Spacey, Brett Ratner and Dustin Hoffman.

“People are aware now of a power imbalance. It’s led to abuse in our industry. (...) It’s everywhere,” Meryl Streep, who is vying for a Globe for her work in media drama “The Post,” told E! network on the red carpet.

Streep, a three-time Oscar winner, said Hollywood’s men and women now felt “emboldened to stand together in a thick, black line.”

Viola Davis added: “It’s all of these women just embracing their authentic voices and standing in solidarity with each other.”

For Debra Birnbaum, executive editor for television at industry weekly Variety, “the deluge of sexual misconduct revelations has been the story of the year, so it’s safe to predict that it will be the story of the night at the Golden Globes.”
