Winfrey, Kidman winners at Golden Globes

Winfrey, Kidman winners at Golden Globes

The awards themselves were largely predictable, but the ceremony is one of the first major awards shows on the calendar, which makes it worth a look for those looking to get an early edge when it comes to predicting the Oscars.

But it could be argued the night belonged to Oprah Winfrey, who was the receipient of the Cecil B. De Mille award.

Based on the novel by André Aciman, Call Me By Your Name tells the story of Elio (Timothée Chalamet) who falls in love with Oliver, (Armie Hammer), an American academic who comes to stay at his family's home in Italy during the summer of 1983. "I do believe and I hope we can elicit change with the stories we tell and the way we tell them". But their time is up. "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. But it's tough to win an acting award with no dialogue, much less when your stiffest competitor delivers her lines so ferociously.

"Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" confronts the always formidable actor Frances McDormand with this scenario, and as Nat Nichols of The Rose Theatre has pointed out to audiences, it does something unique for films by allowing a woman to give full vent to her cold rage, which McDormand's character carries out every bit as relentlessly as the Furies of Greek mythology.

-Actor, Musical or Comedy: Steve Carell, "Battle of the Sexes", Ansel Elgort, "Baby Driver", James Franco, "The Disaster Artist", Hugh Jackman, "The Greatest Showman", Daniel Kaluuya, "Get Out". "We'd have been f***ed if she hadn't said yes!"

She dedicated her win to her castmates, daughters and mother, saying: "Wow, the power of women".

Frederic J. BROWN / AFPGerman fashion model Barbara Meier arrives for the 75th Golden Globe Awards on January 7, 2018, in Beverly Hills, California. Nicole Kidman just took home best actress for "Big Little Lies". "May we teach our children that speaking out without the fear of retribution is our culture's new north star", Dern said.

On the television front, it was a big night for streaming series.

Films like Lady Bird and The Shape of Water also won big awards and from the other side, shows Big Little Lies,The Handmaid's Tale, The Marvelous Mrs Maisel did well in the TV categories.

Golden Globe-winning films that have not yet opened in Asheville include "I, Tonya" (Best Supporting Actress for Allison Janney) and "In the Fade" (Best Motion Picture, Foreign Language, from Germany).

A-list actresses, from Natalie Portman to Jessica Chastain, served up jokes about gender inequality in their industry. "Don't worry he will be back in 20 years as the first person booed during the memoriam".

This year apart from the all-black dress code and plus-ones, the most talked about accessory on the red carpet was the Time's Up political pin.

"All the Money in the World", was accompanied by Tarana Burke, the founder of #MeToo.

As Larasi, who is the executive director of Imkaan, a British black feminist organisation addressing violence against women of colour, put it, the event was "really an fantastic opportunity to just use this platform to highlight all the different issues, and to say time's up on violence against women".
