Golden Globes 2018 highlights

The 75th Golden Globe Awards have come and gone, and will be remembered as the first major awards show to take place after Hollywood's reckoning with sexual assault, spearheaded by the #MeToo movement.

This wasn't lost on its guests, with many marking the new era of awareness by wearing black, inviting activists to the red carpet, or making brutal, barbed comments about the film industry's disgraced men.

'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri' was the big winner of the night, with the film taking home four awards. Meanwhile, the HBO show 'Big Little Lies', starring Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman, also won four awards.

But the moment of the night that most people will remember is Oprah Winfrey's jaw-dropping speech after she became the first black woman to win the prestigious Cecil B DeMille award (you can read the speech in full here).

How the Golden Globes 2018 unfolded:

The most nominated film this year was Guillermo del Toro's curious and touching The Shape of Water, while murderous suburban drama Big Little Lies gets the most nods in TV. The latter faces a very strong challenge from The Handmaid's Tale (a big winner at the Emmys), while Call Me By Your Name, Dunkirk or The Post could easily beat The Shape of Water to 'Best Motion Picture - Drama'.

Presenters for this year's ceremony included Jennfer Aniston, Angelina Jolie, Jessica Chastain, Emilia Clarke, Viola Davis, Zac Efron, Gal Gadot, Greta Gerwig, Hugh Grant, Neil Patrick Harris, Issabelle Huppert, Dwayne Johnson, Helen Mirren, Sarah Paulson, Amy Poehler (former host), Natalie Portman, Seth Rogen, Emma Stone, Alicia Vikander, Emma Watson and Reese Witherspoon.

Many women on the red carpet chose to wear black in protest of the toxic masculine culture in Hollywood that was exposed this year.
