'Three Billboards' wins big as Golden Globes power through sex scandal

Although only one person votes for both the Golden Globe Awards and the Academy Awards - Lisa Lu, a Chinese actress-turned-journalist - it's still reasonable to assume that the results of the 75th Globes, which took place on Sunday evening, will have some impact on the nominations for the 90th Oscars, voting for which began on January 5 and will continue through January 12.

The industry's elite turned the red carpet black for the Globes, the glitzy launch of Tinseltown's awards season, in a fashionable repudiation of disgraced mogul Harvey Weinstein and others ensnared in allegations of misconduct.

"We're all here at the courtesy of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association", he said, taking the first political jab of the night.

But this year's ceremony, seen as the first big opportunity for the industry to unite and deliver a message about how Hollywood can move forward, struck a more serious tone.

Based on the novel by André Aciman, Call Me By Your Name tells the story of Elio (Timothée Chalamet) who falls in love with Oliver, (Armie Hammer), an American academic who comes to stay at his family's home in Italy during the summer of 1983.

Host Seth Meyers previously said that neither topic would be off limits during his show and delivered an opening monologue that focused nearly entirely on the scandals that have seen several men in power fall this past year.

"My achievements are her achievements", she added. I hope he can do a Southern accent because Kevin Spacey sure couldn't ...

Fellow Oscar victor Viola Davis added: "It's all of these women just embracing their authentic voices and standing in solidarity with each other".

Meyers joked that, as the first of the hosts, he felt like "the first dog they shot into outer space".

But you'll need Sky TV's streaming service Neon to watch Big Little Lies, which won Best Limited Series, Best Actress for Nicole Kidman, and Best Supporting Actor and Actress awards for Laura Dern and Alexander Skarsgard.

Dern urged Hollywood to support survivors of abuse and to promote restorative justice.

Laura Dern, a supporting actress victor for "Big Little Lies", said: "May we teach our children that speaking out without retribution is our culture's new north star".

Elsewhere, Saoirse Ronan won Best Actress for her starring role in coming-of-age movie Lady Bird, beating Emma Stone's portrayal of lesbian professional tennis player Billie Jean King in Battle of the Sexes.
