Golden Globe awards echo show's theme of empowerment

"This Is Us" - Sterling K. Brown scored a Golden Globe for best leading actor on a drama last night. "Now we have a chance to be heard and we're all doing it, trying to elicit change", said the actress, who also executive produced the HBO limited series with Reese Witherspoon. Hopefully nobody at the 75th Golden Globes gets as drunk as Kevin from This Is Us, or else we'll be in for a long night.

Carol Burnett got a standing ovation before announcing the victor, along with Jennifer Aniston, of best actress in a musical or comedy, which went to Rachel Brosnahan of Amazon's The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, about a young housewife in the late '50s, having a go at stand-up comedy after her husband leaves her. Star Elizabeth Moss won the best actress in a drama category for her role as Offred, a woman forced to be a sex slave because she can have babies. She quoted novelist Margaret Atwood, whose book provides the basis for the series, in accepting her award. Seven of the 11 television awards went to actors or programs that were honored with Emmys four months ago.

She said: "So many of you know I keep my politics private but it was really great to be in this room tonight".

Without any actors in the running for Best Actor for a Limited Series, Miniseries or TV Movie, Big Little Lies had only one award left to win.

He also thanked Kidman, who starred alongside him in the show as his wife, Celeste.

Pogba tried to break the deadlock from a free-kick, but Scott Carson was equal to it in the Derby goal. Lukaku was next to head wide on 55 minutes, before Thomas Lawrence forced a diving save from Romero.

While Witherspoon didn't spill any details on season 2 of the HBO show, she mentioned that Jean-Marc Valee was unavailable, schedule-wise, and "we are lucky to have Andrea Arnold to respond to the material". Laura Dern won a third Globe for the series for supporting actress. We'll also have a little bit of analysis to go along with it. That was a popular joke at the 2017 Golden Globes too.

One of Hollywood's quirkiest and most powerful female creators, Amy Sherman-Palladino, is behind the series. "We couldn't ask for a better partner".

"A lot has come out of the darkness and into the light", she said. He said he was grateful to the series' creator for making a character specifically written for a black man.

"Nicole, I love you", he said.
