Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri Wins Big at 2018 Golden Globe Awards

The critically-acclaimed drama Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri swept the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday after scoring four top prizes.

The movie, about a grieving mother who takes out three billboards to pressure local authorities to bring her daughter's killers to justice, was crowned Best Motion Picture - Drama, while writer/director Martin McDonagh walked away with Best Screenplay.

Frances McDormand earned another win for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Drama, and her co-star Sam Rockwell was celebrated with the supporting actor award.

There were double accolades for Lady Bird as Greta Gerwig's directorial debut won Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy and the category's best actress title for Saoirse Ronan, while The Shape of Water was another two-time honoree, and Gary Oldman received the best actor in a drama gong for his portrayal of iconic British Prime Minister Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour.

Meanwhile, the TV categories were dominated by hit series Big Little Lies, which was named Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television, while Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern, and Alexander Skarsgard were each recognised for their acting talents.

Oprah Winfrey became the first African-American woman to receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award, presented to someone who has made a positive impact on the entertainment world, and she moved the audience with a powerful speech declaring, "Time's up" for sexual misconduct and inequality, making reference to the new movement of the same name.
 
It was a hot topic throughout the Globes, as host Seth Meyers made light of disgraced Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey in his opening monologue, while honorees including Dern and Reese Witherspoon also voiced their support for victims of sexual assault and harassment as they graced the stage at The Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles, where the majority of stars wore black to back the Time's Up campaign.
