Bohemian Rhapsody faces #TimesUp backlash following Golden Globes win

Black Panther

Glenn Close has won the Best Actress, Motion Picture, Drama award for her role of Joan Castleman in "The Wife" at the 76th Annual Golden Globes Awards tonight at The Beverly Hilton.

Shape-shifting actor Christian Bale, who famously gained 40 pounds to play former Vice President Dick Cheney, won best actor in a comedy for "Vice".

Tell us what you think! Best actress in a limited series or TV movie went to Patricia Arquette, who beat out Amy Adams for Sharp Objects. Similarly, Green Book's writers winning Best Screenplay over four highly qualified rivals was a jarring upset.

And the 47-year-old "Killing Eve" star looked good doing it, too, thanks to a wardrobe created exclusively by female designers.

On the flipside, 20th Century Fox's gamble to enter Bohemian Rhapsody, also centred around concerts and Queen's iconic music, as a drama will prove to be a masterstroke if it uses the Globes momentum to win the best picture Oscar.

From "roasting" the huge talent of Amy Adams - who has two Golden Globe nominations for her work on Sharp Objects and Vice - to simply calling Michael B. Jordan "hot", it was a much different approach to previous award show monologues. She'd previously took home the trophy in 2006 for Best Supporting Performance for her work in the long-running medical drama Grey's Anatomy.

Oh and Andy Samberg opened the Globes, put on by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, on a note of congeniality, including a mock roast of attendees and a string of jokes that playfully commented on critiques of Hollywood. Alfonso Cuaron deservedly won Best Director; bafflingly, his film Roma wasn't nominated for Best Picture, even with so many slots on offer.

Best Comedy Series went to The Kominsky Method, a sedate option when you consider that Barry, The Good Place, Kidding and The Marvelous Mrs Maisel were on the shortlist. Close said she was thinking of her mother, "who really sublimated herself to my father for her whole life".

Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series, Drama - Richard Madden, The Bodyguard. Singer, who was sacked late in production for alleged on-set behavior but remains the credited director on the film, has a history of accusations of sexual assault that spans more than two decades.

There were so many incredible conversations and speeches about women in film this year.

Jeff Bridges, an ardent environmentalist, connected with everyone when receiving the prestigious Cecil B. DeMille Award.
