Last night, the 74th Golden Globe Awards have announced its winners in the film section. NBC broadcast the award ceremony, with Jimmy Fallon hosting it. Here is the full list of winners:

Best Motion Picture – Drama: “Moonlight”

Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical: “La La Land”

Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama: Casey Affleck, “Manchester by the Sea”

Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama: Isabelle Huppert, “Elle”

Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical: Ryan Gosling, “La La Land”

Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical: Emma Stone, “La La Land”

Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, “Nocturnal Animals”

Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture: Viola Davis, “Fences”

Best Director: Damien Chazelle, “La La Land”

Best Screenplay: Damien Chazelle, “La La Land”

Best Original Score: Justin Hurwitz, “La La Land”

Best Original SongCity of Stars (Justin Hurwitz, Pasek & Paul), “La La Land”

Best Animated Feature Film: “Zootopia”

Best Foreign Language Film: “Elle”

“La La Land, which had the most nominations, won all seven of what it was nominated for, which I expected. “Moonlight” was a surprise win in Best Motion Picture – Drama category, but nonetheless deserves it. However, while I already assumed that Casey Affleck of “Manchester by the Sea” and Viola Davis of “Fences” would win, the biggest surprise came when Isabelle Huppert won Best Actress for Drama for “Elle” and Aaron Taylor-Johnson won Best Supporting Actor for “Nocturnal Animals. I would have thought that Natalie Portman of “Jackie” and Mahershala Ali of “Moonlight” would have won in those categories. I already expected “Zootopia” to win, but would have loved it if “Kubo and the Two Strings” had won.

Another big event came when Meryl Streep was award the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award. Streep really did give a great speech about being actors and actresses, and even snuck in a burn on Donald Trump. Now that the Golden Globes are done, the final awards will be the revered Academy Awards, and the less thank stellar Golden Raspberry Awards.
