Relive all the highlights of the 74th annual awards ceremony.
In true Golden Globes tradition, Hollywood’s elite came, conquered and cozied up to the bar.
Held in Los Angeles, host Jimmy Fallon kicked off the event with a pre-recorded musical number featuring a flurry of famous faces including Amy Adams, Nicole Kidman, Ryan Reynolds, and Justin Timberlake – to name just a few. It even saw John Travolta recreate his famous dance move from Saturday Night Fever.

With a few quick quips – such as “Of course we all know Matt Damon from his greatest roll yet: telling Ben Affleck that he liked Batman V Superman” - and a not-so-subtle dig at President-elect Donald Trump, Jimmy let the Globes do the talking.
La La Land was the big winner of the night scooping up seven Golden Globes. The film favourite began its steadfast reign with two awards for Best Original Song and Best Score. Director Damien Chazelle was later awarded accolades for Best Director and Best Screenplay.
Lead stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone both added to the mantle with wins for Best Actor and Best Actress in a Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical. Rounding out their seventh win was the night’s top honour of Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical.
Earlier in the night, the Supporting Actor – Motion Picture category saw Nocturnal Animal star Aaron Tyler-Johnson pick up a gong, while Hugh Laurie took home the award for his role in The Night Manager in the Best Supporting Actor – Television category.
Tom Hiddleston also took home the Best Actor award for his role in The Night Manager, while Claire Foy enjoyed a royal moment with her Best Actress win for The Crown. The Netflix series also took out Best Drama Series.
Claire Foy was a crowning jewel on the red carpet.
Donald Glover had his Globes moment – twice – when he picked up the Best Actor in a Comedy Series gong, as well as accepting the Best TV Series – Comedy or Musical award for Atlanta.
After three nominations, Sarah Paulson won her first Golden Globe for her turn as Marcia Clarke in The People v OJ Simpson: American Crime Story. She took out Best Actress in a Limited Series. The drama also won Best Limited Series or Motion Picture made for Television.
Adding some light-hearted humour to the all muss, no fuss ceremony was a few comedy heroes. Modern Family star Sofia Vergara put her Columbian accent to hilarious use when she repeatedly mispronounced the word “annual”, and Veep actress Julia-Louis Dreyfuss spun a few tracks in the DJ booth.
Things proceeded to get even funnier when Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig recalled the first time they saw an animation film.
Kristen Wiig and Steve Carell let loose on stage.
“That was the moment she [his mum] told my dad she wanted a divorce,” Steve deadpanned. “I never saw my father then after that day — Fantasia day.”
In their hilarious five-minute skit, Kristen went a step further with her own story about the day she saw Bambi and her grandfather also disappeared. The deadpan deliverance was then followed by an awkward silence as the audience fells into fits of laughter.
Meryl Streep may have lost her voice, but she certainly didn’t lose an audience as she delivered a powerful speech upon receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement award.
Meryl Streep moved the crowd to tears.
“As my friend, the dear departed Princess Leia [the late Carrie Fisher], said to me once: Take your broken heart, make it into art,” she concluded.
Casey Affleck outshone his big brother Ben for one night when he took home Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama for his role in Manchester By The Sea. Shortly after, the coveted Best Motion Picture – Drama award took everyone by surprise when Moonlight won its first and only award for the night.
As Jimmy bid farewell, that was that for another year. As the Golden Globes wraps up and we go to rest our weary heads tonight, Hollywood will surely be running hot as the stars come out to play.
