  1. Goodbye

    La La Land

    Thank you for joining us for this year's Golden Globe Awards, we hope you've enjoyed the coverage.

    Many of the winning films have not yet been released in the UK, but La La Land and Manchester By The Sea in UK cinemas from this weekend, while Moonlight and Fences will follow in February.

    Scroll down to catch up on the best of the night's pictures, quotes and talking points.

    We hope you'll join us for the Baftas and the Oscars next month, to see whether La La Land can continue its extraordinary winning streak.

  2. La La Land and Trump loom large

    La La Land

    The fact that La La Land was the big winner is no surprise. But the style in which it dominated the film awards was utterly convincing and bodes well for the Oscars.

    But there were some surprises. Isabelle Huppert winning best film drama actress. Aaron Taylor-Johnson for best film supporting actor.

    Moonlight's best film drama award was not a surprise at such, but many didn't think a small indie film about growing up gay and black in Miami could overcome the more heavyweight Manchester By The Sea.

    Hugh Laurie

    And in the TV categories, there were plenty of British winners from The Night Manager and The Crown to cheer.

    The other feature of the night - while his name may not have been mentioned out loud much, there were lots of references to Donald Trump. Some were coded, some less so.

    Let's hope Hugh Laurie's prediction that this was the last ever Golden Globes - which are organised by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association - doesn't come true.

    "I don't mean to be gloomy," he said. "It's just it has 'Hollywood', 'foreign' and 'press' in the title."

  3. La La Land sets a new record

    La La Land cast and crew

    La La Land's seven wins is a new Golden Globes record.

    The previous best for most wins by a film was six - for 1975's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and 1978's Midnight Express.

    Four other films have won five awards - Doctor Zhivago, Love Story, The Godfather and A Star Is Born.

  4. Streep criticises Donald Trump

    Meryl Streep

    One of the most talked-about moments of the night came from Meryl Streep, who received this year's Cecil B DeMille award for outstanding contribution to entertainment.

    Streep criticised the President-elect, Donald Trump, who ran a divisive campaign last year during which he mocked a disabled reporter and made offensive comments about women and ethnic minorities.

    Here is what Streep had to say:

    Quote Message: There was one performance this year that stunned me. It sank its hooks in my heart. Not because it was good; there was nothing good about it. But it was effective and it did its job. It made its intended audience laugh, and show their teeth.
    Quote Message: It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter. Someone he outranked in privilege, power and the capacity to fight back. It kind of broke my heart when I saw it, and I still can’t get it out of my head, because it wasn’t in a movie. It was real life.

  5. La La Land sweeps Golden Globes

    La La Land

    Well, there's certainly no denying who the night's big winner was.

    Hollywood musical La La Land won seven awards from seven nominations - including best musical or comedy film, while its stars Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling won acting trophies. 

    It also won the awards for best director, screenplay, score and song. The Globes are seen as pointers to the Oscars. 

    Moonlight was named best drama film, while Casey Affleck and Isabelle Huppert won other acting prizes.

    Read more.

  6. Motion picture - drama



    The most closely-contested award of the night goes to Moonlight - a film about a young gay black man growing up in an impoverished neighbourhood in Miami.

    Manchester By The Sea was a close competitor - but Moonlight takes home the biggest award of the night. 

    Neither film, however, has performed as well as La La Land - taking home an impressive seven awards across the whole night.

  7. Actress in a motion picture - drama

    Isabelle Huppert

    Isabelle Huppert - Elle

    Another upset - Natalie Portman was supposed to have had this sewn up for playing Jackie Kennedy.

    But perhaps it should be little surprise that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (which runs the Globes) should vote for a European.

    Just don't necessarily expect the result to be repeated at the Oscars.

  8. Actor in a motion picture - drama

    Casey Affleck

    Casey Affleck - Manchester By The Sea

    One of the big nominees of the night, Manchester By The Sea, has gone largely unrewarded so far tonight - but that's all changed in the closing minutes, as Casey Affleck wins one of the night's biggest prizes. It's the film's first award at this year's Globes - but it still has a shot at winning best dramatic picture.

  9. Motion picture - comedy or musical

    La La Land

    It's done it! La La Land has achieved the quite extraordinary feat of winning in all seven of the categories in which it was nominated.

  10. Actress in a motion picture - comedy or musical

    Emma Stone

    Emma Stone for La La Land

    Accepting her award, the actress says: "Hope and creativity are two of the most important things in the world and to any creative person who’s had a door slammed in their face… or anybody anywhere that feels like giving up sometimes [but] finds it in themselves to get up and keep moving forward, I share this with you.”

  11. Actor in a TV series - comedy or musical

    Donald Glover - Atlanta

    This is the second award of the night for Glover and his FX comedy.

    He hailed the power of TV and film to tell stories to children so they "do stuff that we never thought was possible".

    He said: "My dad used to tell me every day, 'You can do anything you want,' and I remember thinking as a kid in first grade, you're lying to me.

    "But now I do stuff and he's like, 'I didn't think that was possible.'"

  12. Best director

    La La Land

    Damien Chazelle - La La Land

    La La Land is sweeping the board tonight - we've seen it triumph in categories such as screenplay, original score, original song, and now for its director Damien Chazelle. Can it go all the way and win best picture?

  13. Meryl Streep gets standing ovation

    Meryl Streep gets a standing ovation as she receives the Cecil B Demille Award for outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment, presented to her by Viola Davis.

    She's a little croaky as she takes to the stage, however - explaining that she's lost her voice.

  14. 'Wrap it up...'

    You might have noticed a few of the acceptance speeches are being wound up rather quickly tonight, such are the standard time constraints of a major awards ceremony.

    Questlove from The Roots - Jimmy Fallon's house band on his talk show - is in charge of the music tonight, and he seems to feel a bit bad about cutting people short in their prime...

  15. Best television series - drama

    The Crown

    The Crown

    Netflix's epic royal drama The Crown has a reported £100m budget - and now has its reward.

    Created by writer Peter Morgan and director Stephen Daldry, it begins before the Queen's ascension to the throne in the early 1950s.

    The idea is that there will be one season for every decade up to the present day - and the chances of Netflix finding an even bigger budget to make that happen have just increased significantly.

  16. Actress in a TV series - drama

    Claire Foy

    Claire Foy - The Crown

    British actors are having a hugely successful night - with Claire Foy winning this category for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II in Netflix's The Crown.

    Foy paid tribute to the monarch, saying: "She has been at the centre of the world for the past 63 years and I think the world could do with a few more women at the centre of it if you ask me."

    She joins Tom Hiddleston, Olivia Colman and Hugh Laurie among the British winners tonight.

  17. Actor in a mini series or TV motion picture

    Tom HIddleston

    Tom Hiddleston for The Night Manager

    BBC series The Night Manager was a huge success last year - and this is the first ever Golden Globe for its star, Tom Hiddleston.

  18. Tribute to Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds

    Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds

    Jimmy Fallon has just introduced a moving tribute to actresses Carrie Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds. They died within two days of each other last month.
