Hosted by Seth Meyers, the Golden Globe Awards heaped honors on streaming content services Amazon, Hulu, and Netflix, with the three studios winning five of the 11 Golden Globe Awards for television projects.

James Franco won the best actor in a comedy award for his turn as the eccentric filmmaker Tommy Wiseau in The Disaster Artist.

New Zealand viewers wanting to see what all the fuss is about will have to wait to see some of the night's biggest winning movies.

The drama Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, by the British-Irish playwright Martin McDonagh, was named best motion picture at the Golden Globes, with its star, Frances McDormand named best actress in the category.

But Lady Bird, which took home Best Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical, isn't due to hit screens here until February 15.

It's the same news when it comes to the other big winners from yesterday's Golden Globes, like The Shape of Water, Darkest Hour and I, Tonya. "Trust me, the women in this room tonight are not here for the food".

Going back to Sam Rockwell, you can't really find an actor who is as hard-working and as well-liked among journalists as the Three Billboards co-star... except maybe for Willem Dafoe.

Another possible reason for the Rockwell win is that Fox Searchlight wasn't going to rely entirely on Guillermo del Toro's the Shape of Water, just because it received the most Globe nominations. "I believe they are patron saints of our blissful imperfection". "It will be because of a lot of magnificent women, fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say "Me Too" again".

A complete list of Golden Globes winners is available here.
