    On January 7th, 2018, the 75th annual Golden Globes premiered. Both women and men took a stand to stand up for women being treated unequally compared to the men, whether it’s being paid differently or abused. They wore black in protest of the unequal pay and sexual abuse allegations that came to light this past year.

    Seth Meyers hosted and it was his first award show. He didn’t hold back from the offensive jokes, as many wondered how he would handle the situation with all the allegations coming to light recently.

    A big moment of the night was when Oprah received the 2018 Cecil B. DeMille award. Her speech was certainly the highlight of the night. Reese Witherspoon presented the award to her as both a costar and good friend. The speech brought both men and women to their feet. She is the first black woman to win the lifetime achievement award.

    Another few moments of the night were both questionable and great. James Franco accepted his award for best actor in a comedy movie for The Disaster Artist by bringing his brother up on stage with him. He also called attention to Tommy Wiseau to come up on stage, who he plays in the movie. Writer and director Greta Gerwig accepted the award for Lady Bird which won best motion picture for a musical or comedy, as well as Saoirse Ronan winning for best actress in a comedy for that movie.

    Hulu series The Handsmaids Tale won for best tv drama series, while Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri won for best drama motion picture. Nicole Kidman won another award for best actress in a limited series for Big Little Lies as well as Laura Dern winning for best supporting actress for the same show. Big Little Lies also won for best limited series.

   Natalie Portman presented the award for best director as she made a point to say “all male nominees,” as the only woman to ever to win the award was Barbra Streisand. Sterling K. Brown won for best actor in a drama series for This Is Us, being the first man to African-American to win a Golden Globe in that category. Be sure to check out the full winners list.
