The Golden Globes were the first major televised awards show of the year and was hosted by UK actor and comedian Ricky Gervais. There were no real surprises with the winners at this year’s Globes, with ‘1917’ winning two Globes, Best motion picture – drama and Best director in a motion picture for Sam Mendes. ‘Once Upon a Time In Hollywood’ won Best Screenplay – motion picture, Best supporting actor – motion picture for Brad Pitt and best motion picture – musical or comedy. ‘Joker’ took home the awards for Best actor in a motion picture for Joaquin Phoenix and Best original score.
Not only was the Golden Globe Awards hosted by a Brit, but it was a pretty big night all-round for British stars. Phoebe Waller-Bridge was named best actress in a TV series (comedy or musical) for her leading role in 'Fleabag', while the second series of the BBC show was also named best TV series (musical or comedy). Newly knighted Sir Sam Mendes also won two of the biggest prizes of the night for his war epic '1917'. Welsh star Taron Egerton was named best actor in a motion picture (comedy or musical) for playing Elton John in 'Rocketman'. Meanwhile, Sir Elton also picked up a gong alongside songwriting partner Bernie Taupin, winning best original song for I’m Gonna Love Me Again.
