Stars took to the carpet, dressed in black and standing in solidarity with assault victims everywhere through the TIME’S UP campaign, on January 7th for the 75th Golden Globes Awards. There were plenty of moments filled with happiness for various films with the Best Motion Picture awards going to Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri for drama, Lady Bird for musical/comedy, Coco for animation, and In The Fade for Foreign Language. While there were some outstanding female directors this year, such as Lady Bird’s Greta Gerwig, Guillermo del Toro took home the Best Director award for The Shape of Water. The Best Screenplay was written by Martin McDonagh for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. The soundtracks are just as important to the film as the directing and writing. The winner of Best Original Score was Alexandre Desplat for The Shape of Water and the winner of Best Original Song was Justin Paul and Benj Pasek for This is Me, featured in The Greatest Showman.

Moving on to film actors and actresses, plenty of stars wowed audiences in their various films such as Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour, the winner of the Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture (Drama). Other recipient of the Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture was James Franco in the Disaster Artist for musical/comedy, while Sam Rockwell took home the Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. The Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture was awarded to Frances McDormand for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri for drama and Saoirse Ronan for Lady Bird for musical/comedy. The Best Acaress in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture was awarded to Allison Janet for her role in I, Tonya.

A favorite pastime for many, television has changed throughout the years, as has the shows featured on it. The Best Television series went to The Handmaid’s Tale for drama, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel for musical/comedy, and Big Little Lies for limited series/motion picture made for television. Best Performance in a Television Series went to Elisabeth Moss for The Handmaid’s Tale for drama, Rachel Brosnahan for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel for musical/comedy, and Nicole Kidman for Big Little Lies for limited series/motion picture made for television. Sterling K. Brown took home the Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series for This is Us in the drama category, Aziz Ansari took home the same award but for the show Master of None in musical/comedy, and Ewan McGregor received the award for his role Fargo for limited series/motion picture made for television. Both the awards for Best Performance by an Actor/Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series went to Alexander Skarsgård and Laura Dern of Little Big Lies.

One of the moments that stood out to many people was the speech that Oprah Winfrey, this year’s Cecil B. DeMille Award recipient and first black woman to receive the award, gave upon accepting. Winfrey expressed gratitude towards “the women who have endured years of abuse and assault” and spoke of a woman named Recy Taylor, who passed away ten days before the ceremony. She was a victim of assault who sought justice, with the help of Rosa Parks, in a time where “justice wasn’t an option”. She ended telling young women “that a new day is on the horizon! And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in their room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say “Me, too” again.”
