Sam Rockwell Thanks Golden Globe Nominees And Talks Bullying

The evening began with the normally colourful red carpet transformed into a sea of black gowns as every actress showed solidarity with victims of sexual harassment inside and outside the entertainment industry.

Three Billboards dominated the film categories, earning Globes for Sam Rockwell for Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture, Francis McDormand for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama, Martin McDonagh for Best Screenplay and Best Motion Picture Drama for the film itself, beating out predicted victor The Shape of Water. The black comedy crime film took home four awards, including the highly-coveted Best Picture award and the Best Actress trophy for its lead actress, Frances McDormand.

Meanwhile, in the television categories, Will & Grace's much-anticipated comeback lost the Best TV Series (Musical or Comedy) award to Marvellous Mrs. Maisel, which tells the story of a stand-up female comedian in 1950s NY.

In accepting the award for best drama series, "Handmaid" executive producer Bruce Miller punctuated his speech by saying, "To everybody working to stop "The Handmaid's Tale" from becoming real, keep doing that".

"But their time is up", she added, earning a standing ovation."I want all the girls watching here and now to know that a new day is on the horizon", she added.

She was bleeped as she thanked her studio, Fox Searchlight, and then again when she said the word "shift". Presenting the Best Actor in a Drama award, Geena Davis said that the victor would give "half of their salary back so that women can make more than them". Sam Rockwell also won the Globe award for best-supporting actor.

It also won the Best limited series or motion picture made for television.
