The new year has only just begun, but awards season is already here. The first major event of 20187 are the 75th annual Golden Globes Awards, hosted by Seth Meters. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association honors the best in film and television.

On the TV side, it's all about streaming services with Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale, Amazon's The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Netflix's Stranger Things and The Crown all up for multiple awards. HBO should have a good night too, with Big Little Lies as the most-nominated TV program.

For film, there are plenty of likely Oscar contenders, from Get Out and Lady Bird to Call Me by Your Name, The Shape of Water, The Post, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and Dunkirk. Last year the Globes correctly predicted many big Oscar winners, including Moonlight for Best Picture, Casey Affleck, Emma Stone and Viola Davis, plus La La Land director Damien Chazelle.

Who will win? And more importantly, how will Seth Meyers handle the many sexual harassment scandals that have plagued Hollywood over the past few months? That's a major theme for the night, with almost everyone wearing black to honor Time's Up, the movement to fight discrimination, harassment and abuse.

Monologue: Seth took on the serious topics right away, welcoming the "ladies and remaining gentlemen." He wasn't afraid to tackle specific people, with jokes about how in 20 years Harvey Weinstein will be the first person booed during the In Memoriam segment (the audience groaned, but I laughed). He also joked about Kevin Spacey's bad Southern accent in House of Cards.

He also brought a segment from his late night show, "Jokes Seth Can't Tell," offering set-ups and letting stars in the audience deliver the punchlines about issues involving diversity. The highlight was with Amy Poehler, who refused to let Seth give her a set-up. He pronouncement that she was "reclaiming my wine" was great.


HBO's drama about women and sexual abuse is an appropriate first winner for the night. She thanks the other great women in the cast, sharing it with Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley and Zoe Kravitz.

FILM SUPPORTING ACTOR: Sam Rockwell, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Sam is excited and self-deprecating. It's worth noting that for the last two years, the Golden Globe winner in this category lost the Oscar. Though in the eight years prior, the two always matched up. He calls co-star Frances McDormand a "bad-ass and a force of nature."

TV COMEDY LEAD ACTRESS: Rachel Brosnahan, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

 Amazon strikes first blood for streaming services for this dramedy about a female stand-up comedian in the  late '50s.

TV DRAMA LEAD ACTRESS: Elisabeth Moss, The Handmaid's Tale

And now Hulu wins, and Moss is probably going to be winning just about every award for the foreseeable future. She reads a quote from the author of the book the show is based on, Margaret Atwood, about how women used to live in the gaps between the stories, but now women are the stories and they're writing them for themselves.

TV DRAMA LEAD ACTOR: Sterling K. Brown, This Is Us

Wow, NBC gets on the board with a win. He's charming, thanking his wife, his cast and the show's creator, thanking him for writing a role that was specifically for a black man.

TV DRAMA SERIES: The Handmaid's Tale

So the big three awards for Drama copied the Emmys exactly. The creator thanks all of the people in the real world who are doing everything they can to stop what happens in the show's dystopian future from becoming a reality.

TV SUPPORTING ACTOR: Alexander Skarsgard, Big Little Lies

The Emmy winner picks up the second award for this "limited series' which is actually now a drama since HBO renewed it for season 2. He trips over his words and thanks Nicole Kidman for making this show the greatest experience of his career.

FILM SCORE: The Shape of Water

The most-nominated film wins its first award. This is composer Alexandre Desplat's second Golden Globe win.

FILM SONG: "This Is Me," The Greatest Showman

The songwriters, Pasek and Paul, also won last year for La La Land's "City of Stars" and they ruled the Tonys this past year with Dear Evan Hansen.

FILM COMEDY LEAD ACTOR: James Franco, The Disaster Artist

James invites the man he played, creator of The Room Tommy Wiseau, on stage with him. He ends with a sweet and heartfelt moment about how much he loves his brother, Dave.

TV SUPPORTING ACTRESS: Laura Dern, Big Little Lies

Just like Nicole and Alexander, she follows up an Emmy win with a Golden Globe for this show, which is the biggest winner on the TV side tonight. She talks about being brave enough to speak your truth and supporting those who speak out.


Pixar wins again, as it always should. In the 12 years that this category has existed, this is the eighth win for Pixar. Pixar didn't even have a nominee in three of the years.


Wow, that's a bit of a surprise as Laurie Metcalf was the heavy frontrunner for Lady Bird. This is Janney's first Golden Globe, despite multiple nominations for Mom and The West Wing.

FILM SCREENPLAY: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

The award is presented by Catherine Zeta-Jones and her 101-year-old father-in-law, Kirk Douglas. The screenwriter, Martin McDonagh, is wonderfully self-deprecating, saying that his mom was hoping that Lady Bird would win this award.


This movie is from Germany and France.


Cool, he was fantastic in playing twins. He follows in the footsteps of Billy Bob Thornton, who won this award for the first season of Fargo.

TV COMEDY SERIES: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Amy Sheran-Palladino, the creator of Gilmore Girls, wins an award! And for the sixth year in a row, the Comedy Series winner also won a Lead Acting award.ASP is whimsical, asking if there's cheese backstage.

TV COMEDY LEAD ACTOR: Aziz Ansari, Master of None

And Netflix finally wins something tonight after the domination of Amazon and Hulu. He's shocked because all of the websites said he'd lose.


Everyone loves Oprah, perhaps the most inspiring human being alive. She talks about how Sidney Poitier winning the Oscar in 1964 changed her life because it was the first time she saw a black person being celebrated. She talks about valuing the press and that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool people have. She gets emotional and delivers a perfect speech about women being heard and not being afraid any more.

FILM DIRECTOR: Guillermo del Toro, The Shape of Water

Natalie Portman throws some massive shade as a presenter introducing "the all-male nominees." Guillermo loves monster movies and telling these fabled stories save his life.


This ends the TV categories and HBO's drama is the big winner with four awards. Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale and Amazon's The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel both picked up two wins, highlighting a dominant night for female-driven TV. Netflix, FX and NBC also picked up some awards.

FILM COMEDY LEAD ACTRESS: Saoirse Ronan, Lady Bird

After losing for Supporting Actress and Screenplay, Lady Bird finally wins something. She's charmingly Irish.


It was a slow start, but this beloved film picked up two big wins at the end of the night. The male producer perfectly says "The only person who should speak for Lady Bird is Greta Gerwig" before handing the mic to the woman who wrote and directed the movie. That's a guy who knows how to read a room.

FILM DRAMA LEAD ACTOR: Gary Oldman, Darkest Hour

He wins for playing Winston Churchill. For the last five years, the person who won this award went on to win the Oscar, so things are looking good for him.

FILM DRAMA LEAD ACTRESS: Frances McDormand, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Frances is a delight, commending the HFPA for electing a female president. She's sassy and powerful. For the last 15 years, the Oscar winner for Best Actress also won a Golden Globe, either for Drama or Comedy, making it a two-woman race this year between Saoirse and Frances.

FILM DRAMA: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Three Billboards is the big winner, taking home four awards. Lady Bird and The Shape of Water both got two wins, but the biggest loser tonight was The Post, which lost all six of his categories.

The Golden Globes clearly showed that female stories are the big winners. All of the TV series and Film winners also won for their Lead Actresses, while the five Lead Actor winners were the only wins for each of their shows or films.


4: Big Little Lies, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
2: The Handmaid's Tale, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, The Shape of Water, Lady Bird
