Christian Bale, who plays former USA vice president Dick Cheney in Vice, won best comedy/musical lead actor ahead of Green Book's Viggo Mortensen.

"Thank you to 20th Century Fox, you believed in us".

Other winners include Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse for Best Motion Picture - Animated, The Americans for Best Television Series, and Best Original Score went to Justin Hurwitz for First Man.

In an emotional speech, Close said that women in Hollywood should not be afraid to stand up for their careers.

The night's best drama picture victor, "Bohemian Rhapsody", has made $743.1 million worldwide.

Finally, among the TV shows nominated, the one that got Twitter buzzing the most was "Killing Eve". A major one came when Regina King won for If Beale Street Could Talk and promised that within the next few years, she would make sure every project she produced had a 50% female staff.

Oh and Andy Samberg opened the Globes, put on by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, on a note of congeniality, including a mock roast of attendees and a string of jokes that playfully commented on critiques of Hollywood.

Last year, Oh and Samberg teamed up when they presented the Emmy Award for best director of a comedy, which went to Amy Sherman-Palladino of "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel".

Sandra Oh, originally from Nepean, has won the Golden Globe for best actress in a television drama for her starring role in cat-and-mouse thriller Killing Eve. Ben Wishaw took best supporting actor in a limited series for "A Very English Scandal". "In the next two years everything that I produce ... is 50 percent women", King said. "I'd like to thank my mother and my father".

Also receiving multiple awards was "Roma", Alfonso Cuaron's affectionate look at his childhood in Mexico City, which won for best foreign film and best director. And let's not forget that there's not a lot of overlap between the two voting bodies of these awards - and as the Academy becomes more diverse, so do the films it champions.

There were so many fantastic conversations and speeches about women in film this year.
