This year the ceremony was a celebration of female talent.
The 75th Golden Globe Awards has turned out to be a landmark event, and not just with Oprah winning the Cecil B. DeMille Award and all the female guests wearing black to protest against Hollywood sexism. It seems female-orientated films and TV shows dominated the entire night.
Frances McDormand and Woody Harrelson in 'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri'
Martin McDonagh's 'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri' was the winner of Best Drama and Best Screenplay, with Frances McDormand winning Best Drama Actress and Sam Rockwell landing Best Supporting Actor. It's a film about a tenacious mother who takes it upon herself to force the local police to investigate deeper into the murder of her daughter.
The pair are rarely spotted at any public events together, but are reportedly setting aside their differences
On Thursday night, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association revealed the final four presenters that will be giving out awards at the 2018 ceremony – Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie, Emma Stone and Helen Mirren.
This is significant because Jolie and Aniston, who share a mutual ex-partner in Brad Pitt, are very rarely spotted at the same events together, with the last time they were spotted in the same place being the 2015 Critics’ Choice Awards.

What else is nominated for the landmark 75th Golden Globe Awards?
The nominations for the 2018 Golden Globe Awards are finally in, and it seems that 'The Shape Of Water' and 'Big Little Lies' have made the biggest impact in cinema and television with seven and six nods each respectively. We outline the main nominations list.
Michael Shannon, Sally Hawkins and Octavia Spencer in 'The Shape of Water'
The 2018 Golden Globes have 'Get Out' in the comedy-musical category.
Get Out director Jordan Peele has waded into a controversy that’s been ignited after the Golden Globes panel faced confusion over which precise category to place the film under – ending up choosing the comedy category, rather strangely.
The critically lauded film was holed as a horror film – pretty uncontroversially, really – right from its debut at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival back in January. Furthermore, it got great reviews for its insights on race relations in America, telling the story of a young black man (played by Daniel Kaluuya) who meets the middle-class family of his white girlfriend (played by Allison Williams) when horror ensues.
However, the 2018 Golden Globes nominations that were rolled out this morning placed Get Out in the comedy-musical category, which left many onlookers rather bewildered, none more so than the director himself.
The film won every appropriate category.
The 74th Golden Globe Awards saw a very clear frontrunner reigning amongst the winners as 'La La Land' manages to take home no less than seven prizes. The musical romance which hit theatres on Christmas Day beat the likes of 'Deadpool' to the top spot and didn't miss out on a single prize it was nominated for.
'La La Land' was the big winner of the night, landing Best Motion Picture for a Musical, Best Actor and Actress for Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone's performances, Best Director and Screenplay for Damien Chazelle's work, Best Original Score and Best Original Song for 'City of Stars'.

Despite his Golden Globes win, Billy Bob Thornton suggests his movies are not wanted in Hollywood.
Curiously, just minutes after winning the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a TV Drama, Billy Bob Thornton suggested he is no longer sought after in Hollywood as director. Thornton turned to television for his most recent role - a stunning performance in FX's adaptation of the Coen's classic comedy-drama Fargo.
Billy Bob Thornton starred as Lorne Malvo in FX's Fargo
As well as a fine actor, the Oscar-winner is also an accomplished director and his debut feature Sling Blade was heralded as a masterpiece of Southern storytelling. His last effort, the 2012 indie drama Jayne Mansfield's Car featured a wonderful cast (Robert Duvall, Kevin Bacon) but failed to chime with critics.
