"Good evening ladies and remaining gentlemen". Seth went on to point out that it is 2018 and marijuana is finally allowed and sexual harassment isn't. It's been years since a white man has been this nervous in Hollywood. The comedian noted that the Golden Globes are the first time in months that it isn't terrifying to have your name called out in Hollywood.
"Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" picked up the coveted trophy of Best Motion Picture- Drama and lead with a total of four wins including Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor and Best Screenplay.
As Larasi, who is the executive director of Imkaan, a British black feminist organisation addressing violence against women of colour, put it, the event was "really an awesome opportunity to just use this platform to highlight all the different issues, and to say time's up on violence against women". "Bar. Tequila's on me".
The top TV victor, 'Big Little Lies, ' with storylines involving sexual abuse, also won four Golden Globes.
Following the Golden Globes winners' announcement, it was declared that The Shape of Water and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri will hit Indian cinema screens on 2 February and 16 February respectively.
HBO's Big Little Lies racked up several awards including "Best Mini Series or TV Film", with actors Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern and Alexander Skarsgard winning "Best Actress", "Supporting Actress" and "Supporting Actor" for their respective slots.
Gary Oldman's heavily made-up take on Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour is, in many ways, an old-fashioned obvious choice for awards glory. He also thanked the make-up artists who had transformed him for the role, and paid tribute to his wife.
"Let's keep the conversation alive", Kidman said. "Which I suppose is better than the other way around".
"The Shape of Water", which entered the race with maximum seven nominations, won the Best Director for Guillermo del Toro and the Best Score for Alexandre Desplat. "And here are the all-malenominees", she remarked, before introducing the five hopefuls. Octavia Spencer, nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her work in The Shape of Water, lost out to Allison Janney.
"I can tell you it's a very small gesture".
The Golden Globes are organised by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and are seen as an indicator of which films are likely to do well at the Oscars, which take place on 4 March. "I don't want to take the pee out of anyone really, but I think everything is up for grabs and if you're an equal opportunities offender like I am, there's a joy to it".
Those three are just the tip of a awesome array of colourful characters brought to life by a deep bench of acting talent that also includes a scene-stealing Peter Dinklage, Aussie actress Abbie Cornish and the ever reliable John Hawkes.
Black was the theme of the night.
Women in the industry have launched the Times Up movement to address gender disparity and abuse and nearly all of Hollywood - both women and men - turned up in black at the red carpet to show their support. The film was a late-breaking entry in the race and it's possible that many voters had made up their mind by the time they saw the movie.
