With a cohesive ensemble that also includes Abbie Cornish ("W.E."), Lucas Hedges ("Manchester by the Sea"), Caleb Landry Jones ("Get Out"), Peter Dinklage ("Game of Thrones"), John Hawkes ("Deadwood"), Samara Weaving ("SMILF"), Clarke Peters ("The Wire"), and Željko Ivanek ("Damages"), "Three Billboards" has already racked up a slew of nominations and honors in this ongoing awards season, including a win for Best Drama Motion Picture at the 75th annual Golden Globes.

The theme was echoed by Laura Dern, victor of a best supporting actress for Big Little Lies, who said: "Many of us were taught not to tattle". In fact, all of the night's multiple award winners were stories about women: "Lady Bird", "The Shape of Water", "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel", and "The Handmaid's Tale".

Today, arts and entertainment writers John Semley and Tina Hassannia are in the q studio to talk about the surprises, the snubs, and the speeches that made an impression at this year's Golden Globe Awards.

"I just want to say how inspirational its been to be in this room tonight", she told the crowd.

For some reason the show bleeped her thanking the film's production company Fox Searchlight. Presenting the Best Actor in a Drama award, Geena Davis said that the victor would give "half of their salary back so that women can make more than them".

Irish actress Ronan was named best actress in a film comedy for Lady Bird, while James Franco won the equivalent award for best actor for The Disaster Artist.

-Actor, Series, Musical or Comedy: Aziz Ansari, "Master of None".

Ewan McGregor took home best actor in a limited TV series for his multiple performance in Fargo.

The show's star, Rachel Brosnahan, won her first career Golden Globe for lead actress in a comedy.

At the same time, McDonagh refuses to let McDormand off the hook for the collateral damage incurred in her quest, nor does any other character escape the narrative without getting called on the carpet for their misdeeds, not even Woody Harrelson as the well-intentioned and mostly sympathetic police chief.

Sterling K. Brown was the only television network actor to take home a Globe, earning the prize for drama series actor for his work in NBC's "This is Us". "May we teach our children that speaking out without the fear of retribution is our culture's new North Star". When the orchestra tried to play him offstage, he hushed the conductor and continued saying, "For 25 years, I have handcrafted very odd little tales made of motion, color, light, and shadow".
