Writer: Florey DM



The 75th Golden Globes Awards wraps up with "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" taking home four awards.

8 Jan – Taking place today (or tonight, over on that side of the world) at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California, is the 75th Golden Globes Awards.

Taking home the most awards from the ceremony was "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri", winning four out of the six categories it was nominated in.

With its Best Screenplay, Best Actress (for Frances McDormand) and Best Supporting Actor (for Sam Rockwell) wins, it comes as no surprise that the movie would also win the big prize: Best Motion Picture (Drama).

"Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri", written and directed by Martin McDonagh, stars McDormand as Mildred Hayes, a divorced mother who decides to send bold messages to the police in her town when they fail to come up with suspects for her daughter's murder case – by painting the messages on three big billboards leading into the their town.


Meanwhile, Saoirse Ronan-starring "Lady Bird", aside from winning her the Best Actress accolade, also took home the Best Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy) award.

Guillermo del Toro isn't doing too shabby either as the filmmaker won Best Director for the movie "The Shape of Water", which also earned a Best Original Score win.

Oprah Winfrey was also present at the ceremony to accept the Cecil B. DeMille award. In her acceptance speech, the revered media figure warned men who misuse their power that "their time is up", in wake of the Harvey Weinstein case that has opened the floodgate on the sexual assault countless women in Hollywood have silently faced for a long time.
