1917 and Once Upon A Time in Hollywood win big at Golden Globes

Sam Mendes

Sam Mendes' war movie 1917 and Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon A Time in Hollywood took home the big prizes at the Golden Globes on Sunday.

1917 was crowned Best Motion Picture - Drama, upsetting Martin Scorsese's awards season favourite The Irishman, while Mendes surprised himself as he beat his peers to take home the Best Director honour.

Tarantino had a trio of wins to celebrate - he landed the awards for Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy and Best Screenplay, while one of his movie's stars, Brad Pitt, took home the Best Supporting Actor prize.

Joker's Joaquin Phoenix and Judy's Renee Zellweger were given Oscars boosts as they claimed the lead acting honours for drama, as Marriage Story's Laura Dern, Rocketman's Taron Egerton, and The Farewell's Awkwafina were also feted for their big screen work.

Meanwhile, Brits dominated the TV prizes as Fleabag emerged a double winner, with creator and star Phoebe Waller-Bridge picking up Best Television Series - Musical or Comedy and Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Musical or Comedy, and there were triumphs for Succession's Brian Cox as well as Olivia Colman, who was honoured for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II in season three of The Crown, while Russell Crowe and Michelle Williams emerged victorious in the limited series or TV film acting categories for The Loudest Voice and Fosse/Verdon, respectively.

The 77th Golden Globe Awards were hosted by acid-tongued Ricky Gervais, who spent the evening poking fun at Hollywood's elite from the stage at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles.

The evening wasn't all about celebrating, with many winners using their acceptance speeches to raise equality and women's rights issues, and to share their support for those affected by the devastating bushfires in Australia.
