75th Golden Globe Awards: Full list of winners

The 75th Golden Globe Awards were held on the night of 7 January 2018 at the Beverly Hilton in Hollywood. The awards are conferred by the 93 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) and function as a kick-off to the annual awards season. This year, talk show host Seth Meyers hosted the proceedings.

The ceremony, which was broadcast on NBC in the U.S., was promoted with the tagline “Hollywood, we have a lot to talk about”. The typically light-hearted atmosphere of the Golden Globes, where celebrities can be counted on to be slightly tipsy and to take things less seriously than at an event like the Oscars, was more sombre.

Reese Witherspoon, Eva Longoria, Salma Hayek and Ashley Judd on the Red Carpet 

The sexual harassment allegations and the outing of prominent men in the entertainment industry who have been accused of such behaviour loomed large over the Golden Globes. The red carpet was a sea of black, with actresses choosing to wear the colour to draw attention to the Time’s Up Initiative, a legal defence fund that aims to support victims of sexual harassment across various industries. The open letter announcing the initiative was signed by over 300 women in the entertainment industry, including Emma Watson, Emma Stone, Janelle Monáe,Jessica Chastain, Natalie Portman and Shonda Rhimes.

Meryl Streep and Ai-jen Poo

Stars brought activists as their dates to the awards show: Meryl Streep invited Ai-jen Poo, director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance, along. Emma Watson's companion was Marai Marasi, founder of the U.K.-based organisation Imkaan, which aims to reduce violence against minority women and girls.

America Ferrera, Natalie Portman, Emma Stone and Billie Jean King 

Former Golden Globes co-host Amy Poehler brought Saru Jayaraman along — Jayaraman is the co-founder of @rocunited, which aims to raise wages and labour standards for the 12 million workers in the restaurant industry in the U.S. Emma Stone’s date was Billie Jean King, the pro tennis player and equal rights activist whom Stone portrayed in Battle of the Sexes.

Meyers addressed the #MeToo and resulting Time’s Up movements by taking digs at men who have been accused of sexual assault, including Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey. “Good evening ladies and remaining gentlemen,” Meyers began. As the host of the first awards show televised this fraught season, he jokingly compared himself to the first dog being shot into space. Meyers referred to Weinstein as “the elephant who isn’t in the room”, and said the disgraced producer would be the only person to be booed during their In Memoriam tribute in 20 years’ time.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, the black comedy drama directed by Martin McDonagh, snagged the most awards for a single film that night — four. The Shape of Water and Lady Bird took home two awards each.

On the TV front, HBO’s Big Little Lies took home four awards, with The Handmaid’s Tale and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel taking home two each. All three shows are female-centric.

Oprah Winfrey and Reese Witherspoon 

Oprah Winfrey took home the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award. Winfrey called out sexual abusers in her speech, declaring that “For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dared to speak their truth to the power to those men, but their time is up. Their time is up!”. Winfrey paid tribute to Recy Taylor, a black woman raped by six white men in 1944. She also recalled seeing Sydney Poitier become the first black man to win an Oscar in 1964.

“A new day is on the horizon,” Winfrey said. “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 that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say #MeToo again.”
