Last night, the best and brightest of Hollywood gathered for the 74th Golden Globe Awards. ‘La La Land’ was the big winner on the night, nabbing a whopping seven gongs on the night.

Elsewhere, Isabelle Huppert took home an award for her leading role in Paul Verhoeven’s ‘Elle’, beating Natalie Portman’s performance in ‘Jackie’, and Casey Affleck beat Denzel Washington to the Best Actor in a Dramatic Role award, for his performance in ‘Manchester by the Sea’.

Meryl Streep took the chance to give a heartfelt and impassioned speech about the current President-Elect of the US, when accepting the Cecil B. DeMille award for lifetime achievement. Although she had almost lost her voice, Streep managed to be inspirational, as always, saying’ “an actor’s only job is to enter the lives of people who are different from us, and let you feel what that feels like. And there were many, many powerful performances this year that did exactly that. Breathtaking, compassionate work. But there was one performance this year that stunned me. It sank its hooks in my heart. Not because it was good. There was nothing good about it. But it was effective and it did its job. It made its intended audience laugh and show their teeth. It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter, someone he outranked in privilege, power, and the capacity to fight back. It kind of broke my heart when I saw it, and I still can’t get it out of my head. Because it wasn’t in a movie. It was real life.

“And this instinct to humiliate when it’s modeled by someone in the public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody’s life because it kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing.

“Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence incites violence. And when the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose.”

In the TV awards, ‘The Night Manager’, ‘Atlanta’ and ‘The People v. OJ Simpson’ were the big winners on the night, with Hugh Laurie, Olivia Colman and Tom Hiddleston taking gongs for actors in dramatic roles, and Donald Glover taking the award for actor in a musical or comedy. Sarah Paulson also took home an acting award for her role in ‘The People v. OJ Simpson’
