Awards season kicked into gear on Sunday night with the Golden Globes. And despite most of the awards being fairly easy to predict, there were some genuine surprises that will undoubtedly have an impact on the rest of the season going forward. For one, it was a big night for Three Billboards Outside Ebbings, Missouri, which walked away with four Globes: Best Actress – Drama, Best Supporting Actor, Best Screenplay, and Best Picture – Drama.

After winning the Audience Award at TIFF last year, we knew this movie was going to be a player. But last night, Three Billboards announced itself as a contender to take very seriously. The Shape of Water and Lady Bird also had fair good nights, the former winning Best Director with the latter winning Best Actress – Comedy and Best Picture – Comedy.

Seth Myers made a big opening splash with his monologue, tackling the elephant in the room right away: the recent sexual abuse scandals that have rocked Hollywood. Actresses and filmmakers had plenty to say all night, too, including the likes of Natalie Portman, Greta Gerwig, Jessica Chastain, and Oprah, who was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award for Lifetime Achievement. There were also memorable victory speeches from Frances McDormand and Nicole Kidman, among others.

As for our Staff Predictions: Ryley and I both missed five categories in Film, so we tied. We both got Best Actress – Drama, Best Foreign Film and Best Picture – Drama wrong; I also missed Best Song and Best Screenplay, while Ryley missed both the Supporting performances. On the TV front, Ryley was on fire, only missing Best Actress – Drama, Best Actor – Musical/Comedy and Best Actor – Miniseries.

Take a look at the winners below.
