Golden Globes 2017: list of winners

In a new Golden Globes record, La La Land won seven awards from seven nominations - the most awarded film in the ceremony's history.

Golden Globes 2017: list of winners

That level of success, however, was well and truly Trumped. Donald Drumpf, his campaign and his upcoming presidency was rubbished and joked about by a number of winners in their acceptance speeches as well as by the host, Jimmy Fallon. Following on from the ceremony, these remarks are what have made for the biggest news worldwide. Meryl Streep, who won the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award, gave a long and scathing criticism of the president-elect and asked for solidarity for journalists: "[The Hollywood Foreign Press Association] and all of us in this room, really, belong to the most vilified segments in American society." Hugh Laurie also joked, "I don't mean to be gloomy but it has the words 'Hollywood,' 'foreign' and 'press' in it," and this Golden Globes inevitably being the last as a result.

Back to the awards, though; there were a lot of surprises by any standard. The firm favourite to win the award for Best Supporting Actor, Mahershala Ali for Moonlight, which took home the biggest prize of the night, Best Film, Drama, and who has won almost every supporting actor award across the awards circuit, was ignored in favour of Aaron Taylor-Johnson in Nocturnal Animals, who has barely been nominated elsewhere, winning just this one. Even more of a shock was Isabelle Huppert winning Best Actress, Drama in the French film, Elle despite ferociously strong competition from Ruth Negga and Natalie Portman.

Casey Affleck won the award for Best Actor, Drama in Manchester By The Sea, which was expected generally, but a slight surprise following the news that he has settled multiple sexual harassment allegations out of court. Ryan Gosling obviously won the award for Best Actor, Comedy or Musical despite the fervent fan support behind Ryan Reynolds for Deadpool. Also, for some reason, as Gosling was going up to accept his award, Andrew Garfield and Reynolds locked lips in an odd celebration of loss. Finally I'm happy to reveal that Atlanta, in its first series, won the awards for Best Comedy Series and Best Actor in a Comedy series for Donald Glover.

Refreshingly, there was a lot of love for British actors in the list of winners. The Netflix series about Queen Elizabeth II's ascension, The Crown, took home two awards including for newcomer Claire Foy as Best Actress in a Drama Series, The Night Manager's Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Laurie, and Olivia Colman all took home awards making the BBC mega-hit the most successful television programme of the night, and of course, Aaron Taylor-Johnson took home his huge award. Finally, Tracee Ellis Ross took home the award for Best Actress in a Comedy Series for the first series of Black-ish making her the first Black actor to do so since 1982; addressing this fact in her speech made for a fully politically charged night at the Globes.
