Golden Globes: Sam Rockwell Wins Best Supporting Actor for 'Three Billboards'

The other top honor went to "Lady Bird" by director Greta Gerwig, which captured the Golden Globe for best comedy or musical.

With a red carpet dyed black by actresses dressed in a color-coordinated statement against sexual harassment and gender inequality, the Golden Globes confronted the post-Harvey Weinstein era with a ceremony at turns protest rally and party, atonement and celebration.

Actress, Drama- Elisabeth Moss, The Handmaid's Tale. "Their time is up", Winfrey said, referring to the newly-formed coalition to fight sexual misconduct.

Actor, Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy- James Franco, The Disaster Artist.

McDormand said she was proud to be a woman in the industry.

The awards include Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture made for Television, Best Performance by an actress in a Television Limited Series or Motion Picture made for Television (Nicole Kidman) and Best Supporting Actress in the same category (Laura Dern).

Amazon Studios' freshman series "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel", about a housewife-turned-comedian in 1950s NY, was the surprise victor of best TV comedy and its star, newcomer Rachel Brosnahan, won best TV comedy actress. Looking at fierce competition for a slot in the Oscars' Best Actress race, McDormand will contend with several of these actresses, in addition to other strong contenders battling tonight in the Globes' Comedy/Musical Category, including Lady Bird's Saoirse Ronan, I, Tonya's Margot Robbie, Victoria & Abdul's Dame Judi Dench, and Battle of the Sexes star Emma Stone. "We see you. We hear you and we will tell your stories". "We are the stories in print and we are writing the stories ourselves".

The movie "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" was the big victor Sunday at the Golden Globe awards ceremony as Hollywood women dressed in black and raised their voices against sexual harassment and abuse.

Frances McDormand is the victor of the best actress in a drama film for her role in "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri". Also in the mix are Guillermo del Toro's Cold War-era fantasy "The Shape of Water", which won for its score, and Steven Spielberg's newspaper drama "The Post". Franco dragged his co-star and brother, Dave, to the stage and called up Wiseau.

In his opening monologue, Seth Meyers made light of his role as the host of the first awards show since sexual harassment and abuse scandals rocked Hollywood, comparing himself to "the first dog they shot into outer space".

Brown talked of benefiting in his career "from colorblind casting" and thanked "This Is Us" creator Dan Fogelman in his acceptance speech.

Tune in after the telecast for The Hollywood Reporter and Hollywood Foreign Press Association's official aftershow, live on Twitter.

Supporting Actress, Motion Picture- Allison Janney, I, Tonya. "What I appreciate so much about this is that I'm being seen for who I am and being appreciated for who I am, and it makes it that much more hard to dismiss me or dismiss anybody who looks like me".

Women and men supporting the organization arrived to the Globes wearing black, many accessorizing with a pin featuring the Time's Up logo. Among the nominees Sunday is Christopher Plummer, who was brought in at the last minute to erase Spacey from "All the Money in the World".
